He’ll do anything for his daughter…

In the three years since her mother’s death, widower Hoyt Bradley’s daughter, Jess, hasn’t spoken—until she suddenly begs him to save her favorite bookstore from closing.

EXCERPT


She was going to blow this. She just knew it.
“Miss Anna?” Jess wiggled insistent fingers in her direction. The little girl was already holding Hoyt’s hand, but she wanted Anna’s, as well. “Let’s go get some pizza!”
She took Jess’s hand, feeling the little girl’s slightly sticky fingers twine trustingly around her own. Hoyt’s eyes met hers, and he grinned.
That grin had the butterflies in Anna’s stomach multiplying like rabbits. She knew why Hoyt was smiling. Jess was talking. That warm light in his eyes was all about his daughter. It had nothing to do with Anna.
But for a second, standing there, feeling tiny fingers in hers and seeing Hoyt’s face soften in that smile, it sure felt more...personal.
It felt like family.

Three years into the Great War, England’s greatest asset is their intelligence network—field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack every German telegram. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough.

Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy that just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the too-intelligent Margot, but how to convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?

Amidst biological warfare, encrypted letters, and a German spy who wants to destroy not just them, but others they love, Margot and Drake will have to work together to save them all from the very secrets that brought them together.

Review & Giveaway: Tate by Susan May Warren


 

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour & Giveaway for Tate, the second book of The Montana Marshalls series by Susan May Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

https://amzn.to/2WJiL0Y Title: Tate 
Series: The Montana Marshalls, Book 2 
Author: Susan May Warren 
Publisher: SDG Publishing 
Release Date: July 9, 2019  
Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense

What will it cost this bodyguard to save the woman he loves?

Bodyguard, Tate Marshall, has always been the family troublemaker. Maybe it’s his impulsive propensity to get into the middle of problems that don’t belong to him. But once in, he can’t stop himself from trying to solve them and that includes his recent dilemma. He’s in love with the woman he’s supposed to protect, the beautiful Gloria, “Glo” Jackson, daughter of US Senator and presidential hopeful Reba Jackson. A member of the country band, the Yankee Belles, Glo was targeted in a recent terrorist attack designed to deter her mother from running.

Glo is as stubborn as her mother, and Glo isn’t about to hide from threats, at least the kind that won’t cost her heart. Because she’s already paid a terrible price for the war on terror, and she can’t let herself love a man who might die, especially because of her.

As the campaign heats up and the threats deepen, so does the attraction between Tate and Glo. But when they’re discovered, and Tate is fired, what will he do to protect the woman he loves?

And what will Glo do to keep from losing another man to the costs of war?

The gripping second installment of the Marshall Family series.


Knox & Tate Sale_JR_1

  MY REVIEW

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing

Another amazing story in the Montana Marshalls series! The previous book Knox provided a great lead in to the suspenseful plot as well as introducing readers to both Tate and Glo, but only hinting at the things they have gone through, increasing curiosity and anticipation for this book. I loved the strong yet vulnerable personalities of Tate and Glo, and the chemistry and attraction they share. I've been interested in the Marshall siblings since reading Reuben's story in the third Montana Fire book, Burnin' For You. The brothers and sister have a strong family bond, but also some drama in their history and it's been great to get to know the dynamic they share and look forward to more being revealed with each book. The siblings are finding their own way in life, but have a haven in the family ranch where their mother keeps the homefire burning. The swift pace and exciting action kept me glued to the pages and the angst between Tate and Glo as they figure out their relationship was heartwrenching. Highly recommend to fans of contemporary romance and suspense! 

(I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions expressed are my own)

 INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR SARA DAVIDSON


Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am a follower of Jesus Christ and am blessed and proud to be a Canadian, born and raised in Ontario. I dated my husband Michael for ten weeks before we got engaged, and we have been happily married now for twenty-three years. We have three kids, two boys aged 15 and 20 and a 19 year-old-daughter. I have had a life-long love affair with reading and writing, and spend most of my time during the week either writing or editing my own or other people’s books, along with mentoring new writers.

What do you do besides writing?

In my spare time, I enjoy meeting friends for coffee, spending time with my family, watching movies, walking my dogs, going to one of my book clubs (I belong to three) or writers’ groups (two), or being involved with the women’s ministry at my church. I am also a big sports fan (Go Blue Jays, Maple Leafs, and Raptors!) and my youngest son and I love watching or going to live games together.

Do you have images you can share that come close to how you picture your characters? Do you like to find visual inspiration for your characters before or during your writing process?

I don’t usually, but for Vigilant, I actually have come across pictures that reminded me of the three main characters—Sienna Miller for Nicole, Adrian Grenier for Gage, and Brant Daugherty for Daniel.  


What are some songs that you listened to or inspired you while writing your book?

Normally I wouldn’t have an answer for this one, as I can’t listen to music as I write and don’t normally associate music with my stories. However, “Worn” by Tenth Avenue North has always moved me, and every time I hear it I imagine it in the background as the last scene of Vigilant plays across the big screen (I can dream, right?)

What message would you like readers to ultimately take away from the book?

The main message I always want readers to take away from my books is that, whatever they are going through, whatever challenges or tragedies or suffering they are or have endured, they are never alone. Life is hard, but God is so good, he loves us so much, he showers us with grace and mercy, and he promises that he will never leave us or forsake us. That theme runs through everything I write, so hopefully readers will pick up on that and gain hope from it.

What can we look forward to coming from you in the future?

I have three books coming out in the next year or two. I have submitted book two of The Night Guardians Series, Guarded, to my publisher and am about half done writing book three. I am also privileged to be part of an amazing group of authors that is putting out The Mosaic Collection, a series of contemporary Christian novels. Those books will release one a month beginning August 2019. My contribution to the series, the romantic suspense novel Lost Down Deep, will come out in February 2020.
