Publisher's Summary

Protection leads to passion in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s dangerously hot Mountain Mercenaries adventure.

Dispatched to the Dominican Republic to rescue a kidnapped child, former Navy SEAL Archer “Arrow” Kane makes a startling discovery: another hostage - Morgan Byrd, a very beautiful and very well-known missing person who disappeared off the streets of Atlanta a year ago. She’s brave, resilient, and unbroken. All Arrow wants to know is why she ended up in a shack in Santo Domingo. All he feels is the desire to protect.

Morgan is done being the victim and is determined to find out who hates her so much that they want her gone - but not dead. Until then, she has Arrow, an alpha stranger who’s offering a warm and safe place to hide. But as the passion between them flares, so does the fear that whoever took Morgan will do anything to get her back. For Arrow, protecting this woman with a mysterious enemy is the most dangerous mission of his life. And it’s worth every beat of his heart.

Critic Reviews

“Stoker thrills with the sizzling hot, fast-paced, and occasionally heart-stopping third contemporary Mountain Mercenaries novel…Stoker sensitively deals with tough subjects such as [assault] (and its devastating aftermath) and parental kidnapping, and draws readers into a richly woven tale, ably setting up the next story. This series is perfect for romantic thriller aficionados.” (Publishers Weekly)

Great balance of romance and suspense!

This particular series, by this author, is by far one of my fave romantic suspense, and this book is the best. The rescue of an American woman, who had been missing for a year, from the Dominican Republic was gripping. The Mountain Mercenaries then work to discover who was responsible for her abduction...the suspense was killing me...lol. The reveal of the mastermind was mind boggling! Definitely did not see that coming. Narration was on point and did a fantastic job of ‘separating’ the characters. Worth the read/listen.

Just OK.

This series is just OK. I can't really get into it like I could the others. I will continue to listen because I enjoy this author. I dont really know why I am not particularly fond of this series, but I do catch myself thinking the term what a dummy an awful lot. I feel that the intelligence of the heroes and heroines is questionable.

Another great romantic suspense!

When the Mountain Mercenaries head to the Dominican Republic to rescuer a little girl who’d been kidnapped, they unexpectedly find a missing woman who they recognized from the news. She’d been missing for a year, and when they rescue the child they rescue her as well. After some danger in leaving the country, they return to the States, but Arrow is falling for the woman. Even after they are back in the US, she’s still not safe as they don’t know who paid to have her taken. When sudden events start happening, they are racing to figure out who hated her enough to have her kidnapped. Narration is well done!

Very good narration

This narration is very good. I just couldn't get into the story as much as I usually do. It did have good suspense and characters.

One intense story

This is one intense story that I had to finish. Morgan and Arrow are a great match. Morgan needed a special man and he is it. After Morgan's rescue, the question is who would hate someone so much that they put her in this private hell? The story stays intense to the end when we find out who it is. Wow. The story is a winner for Ms. Stoker.

Really great

I just love listening to these audios. i would say they asre better than reading them as the narrator does an awesome job.
In this book Morgan has been rescued along with a young girl. Morgan and Arrows attachment is more than just been what appears on the surface but soon they realise that Morgans captives were paid to keep her there and she possibly w o nt be safe when shes at home. But the men are determined to keep her safe no matter what
