Publisher's Summary

For a Mountain Mercenary and a desperate woman, love becomes a dangerous refuge in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker's novel of heart-gripping suspense.

Mountain Mercenary Hunter "Meat" Snow has a mission: eliminate the human traffickers scouring the barrios of Lima for vulnerable prey. But it's Meat who's taken down. Separated from his team and beaten within an inch of his life, he's left for dead. When he wakes, it’s to the intimate care of a beautiful stranger who knows all about survival.

Zara Layne was a child when a brutal murder left her orphaned and abandoned in Peru. Ever since, she's fended for herself on the streets, outrunning its predators. Trusting men is not in Zara's blood...until it warms to the exhilarating touch of the wounded hero who promises deliverance. As each other's rescuers, they return to Colorado for a new normal.

But when Meat disappears, Zara discovers how ruthless the past can be. With the help of the loyal Mercenaries, she's drawing on her own skills of endurance to find him. And for Zara, there's no danger great enough to come between her and the man she loves.

Yeah, Meat Gets His Chance At Love!!!❤❤🎊🥂

I am so happy & so in love with this one by Susan Stoker. I have been following the Mountain Mercenaries since Book 1 in the Series, "Defending Allye," all the way now to Book 6; "Defending Zara." Susan Stoker is the Queen of this genre; Rangers, Sheriffs, Navy SEALS, etc... She don't fall flat on any of it.

Stella Bloom has been the Visual Storyteller for the whole Mountain Mercenaries Series and she's done a TREMENDOUS, WONDERFUL job with it. I have her on my list of Favorite Female Narrators and each time that I listen to an audiobook that she's the narrator, I know she will not fail me.

5-⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ for both Ms. Stoker and for Stella. This's definitely a book that people would enjoy reading or listening to so, it comes with high recommendations from me.

Ok Narration

This author draws out the drama longer than needed... The book goes from detailed to tedious.

Holy shit!

You did it again! I loved it! The story of Meat and Zara was great, if I hadn’t needed sleep and to go to work I wouldn’t have been able to put it down. And the ending? Perfect! It is a must read by far!

Sadly I’m not going to finish listening

I’m half way through and I just have no interest in the characters or what will happen next. This is very pedestrian no ups or downs just sorry but boring. I’ve waited eagerly for this one because I wanted to know what happened after the end of the last one but it’s really not worth knowing. It may be that I’m all Susan Stoker’d out as I’ve read everything else by her. Am returning it and won’t be looking for anymore by this author
