about the book

Tate by Susan May WarrenWhat 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.

my thoughts

I love everything about this series! The Montana Marshalls series, and Tate specifically, has an “action and attraction” packed unputdownable plot which takes place in a number of interesting locations amid various sub-cultures.

Tate by Susan May Warren quote graphic by Faithfully BookishGlo has a spine of steel and a compassionate songwriter’s heart. Her tumultuous relationship with her mother and the endless political strategizing just about stressed me out but Glo continually met each challenge with head high and shoulders back!

At first glance, Tate seems like a classic tough guy bad boy but in truth, he’s a modern-day warrior. His passion for Glo’s dreams and happiness and willingness to sacrifice himself for his loved ones make him a fairly irresistible hero as far as I’m concerned.

This book is everything readers have come to expect from master storyteller Susan May Warren! Rather than say more, I’ll just wrap it up with my hearty recommendation and start reading Ford, the next installment of the series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own. I also purchased a print copy for myself.
