about the book

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.

Tate excerpt

He knew, right to his bones, that Glo was the one he’d waited for. Wanted to start over with. And he would. As soon as they got clear of the specter and the death threats stalking them, he would quit this job.

Create his own sappy, happy ending, hopefully.

But until then, he had to keep his hands fisted in his pockets.

“I used to work here,” Tate said, finally answering her question.

“Doing what?”

He simplified his answer. “Protecting people.” And other things.

“Of course you were.” She glanced up at him then. Such beautiful hazel-green eyes, with tiny specks of gold. He could forget the past, the knot in his gut, even his sins, when she looked at him like that. With trust.

As if he might actually be a hero.

He couldn’t move, his heart nearly frozen in his chest.

Especially when she touched his arm. “Thanks for taking down Russell tonight. You set Kelsey free.”

“I didn’t—”

Her hand touched his chest. “Yeah, you did.” She stepped in front of him, her back to the window panes. She put her other hand on his chest. “Thank you.”

The heat of her hands turned his entire body to fire. He swallowed, stared down at her. “Glo—I—”

“Kiss me already, hero.”
