  • Sexy, sensual, suspenseful romp

    Disclaimer: ARC received in exchange for an honest review Promise to Defend is Diana Gardin’s second installment in her Rescue Ops series (which is a spinoff of her Battle Scars series). Set in coastal Wilmington, North Carolina, Promise to Defend is the story of ex-Special Forces now Night Eagle Securities bad@ss with a hero complex, Ronin Shaw, and interior designer with some skeletons in her walk-in closet, Olive Alexander; it picks up right where its predecessor, Sworn to Protect, leaves off. What's in the water at NES that the men of the high-profile security firm have a proclivity for damsels in distress? And why are Gardin's heroines always mixed up in some kind of trouble? These former military men seem overwhelmingly drawn to beautiful, strong women with targets on their backs, and this scenario again plays out in Promise to Defend. Despite being willful and extremely independent, Olive’s past has come back to haunt her, becoming a problem far too large for her to handle on her own. Her issues are unknowingly intertwined with the crippling pain of Ronin’s past, which, when added to her pride and his alpha-male protective tendencies, makes their coupling quite compelling. Again, Gardin spins a romantic suspense yarn unlike any other. Her work is often fast-paced, complex, and engaging, and Promise to Defend certainly checks all these boxes. Ronin and Olive’s relationship is a little insta-love-y, but remains authentic and genuine in Gardin's deft and capable hands. She has a gift for developing likable, empathetic characters who undergo significant personal growth often as a result of the romantic relationships she cultivates for them. I highly recommend this series, which continues later this year with Mine to Save, to readers looking for a sexy, sensual, suspenseful romp that absolutely does not disappoint.

    Thanks for your feedback!
