You can't override the heart

It may seem odd to seek peace by moving to a war-torn African country, but for medical missionary Dr. Cynthia Myers, it provided a way to escape a shallow life of unearned wealth, a philandering fiancé, and a father now square in the public eye as vice president of the United States. At least here she knows her work and life have meaning. But all that is thrown into chaos when she fails to save the life of a local warlord's mortally wounded son.

As part of the Army Special Forces A-Team on a mission to capture and subdue the warlord, Captain Rick Norton is compelled to use deadly force to save Cynthia's life. Enraged at the violence she witnessed and riddled with guilt that men died because of her, Cynthia doesn't want to like anything about Rick and his team--but an unexpected attraction is taking hold.

With two members of his team badly injured and rebels in hot pursuit, Rick will have to draw upon all his strength and cunning to get her out alive . . . because he's beginning to think that, despite their differences, they just may be able to make a life together.

You can't outrun the past

FBI Special Agent Lynda Culter is investigating an ecoterrorist organization in the Alaskan wilderness when she and her partner are taken captive and he's murdered before her very eyes. The only person who can identify the key players, Lynda gets assigned to take part in a joint operation in Istanbul to take the organization down.

As a woman in a Muslim country, she'll find it much easier to move around undetected with a fake husband. Unfortunately for her, the one assigned to play the role is none other than Army weapons specialist Bill Sanders--the man who crushed her heart in college.

With a cargo bay's worth of hurt and baggage between them, these two consummate professionals must play their parts perfectly if they hope to stop those responsible for bombing oil pipelines, which has killed innocent civilians and threatened to destabilize the oil markets. Protecting Lynda becomes Bill's primary focus--but love long buried has a way of resurfacing at the most inopportune times.

You can't give up on love

When she was just five years old, Melissa Braxton watched her father take her mother's life and suffered the pain of separation from her sister, Lola. Melissa grew up with a strong desire to help those stuck in abusive relationships. It's why she became a therapist and opened a domestic abuse shelter.

After losing a leg to a gunshot wound in the line of duty, Phil Osbourne has felt like a man without a purpose--until he hears Melissa's story and decides to use his Special Forces contacts to track down her missing sister, the wife of a Colombian cartel teniente. He knows what he discovers will break Melissa's heart. What he doesn't realize is that helping the women reunite will bring the cartel down on them like the category 5 hurricane striking Miami..

Bruised yet not quite broken, Melissa and Phil battle the storm and the cartel, calling on strength they didn't know they had to escape death, save the innocent, and--just maybe--find healing in each other's arms.


Word of Honor Review

In Word of Honor by Hallee Bridgeman, Lynda Culter is an FBI agent working internationally to bring down a terrorist organization.  While on assignment in Istanbul, she is forced to work closely with the man that broke her heart back in college. Bill Sanders had a very good reason for breaking off his relationship with Lynda all those years ago, or at least that what he tells himself.  Either way, seeing her again is bringing back those old emotions.  While Lynda and Bill navigate their resurfaced feelings, they must put everything on hold while they work together to bring down a very dangerous criminal organization. 

I knew after the first chapter Word of Honor was going to be a real page turner.  It's great when you have story that not only has lovable main characters, but interesting side characters too!  I really enjoyed getting to know Lynda and Bill, as well as their teammates.  You could see how much both had changed over the years, but never really stopped loving each other. Both were strong characters in their own way, and I loved how their romance slowly came back together. Lynda was both strong and vulnerable.  She was more of an investigator and wasn't too comfortable with doing undercover work.  However, Bill was able to help her get through it.  He was tough, but had a soft side to him when it came to Lynda.  He always encouraged her and let her know she was an amazing person. The romance didn't happen right away and took some work, but it came together nicely throughout the story.  I really enjoyed how Bridgeman intertwined the military and other federal agencies in this book.  It definitely brings a certain feel to the story and it was a lot of fun to read.  

I love it when a story surprises me, and I certainly did not expect that plot twist!  The romance, action and suspense will definitely keep you wondering what will happen next.  Word of Honor is book two in the Love & Honor series, and I'm definitely looking forward to reading more Hallee Bridgeman books! Full of action, romance, and suspense and I can't recommend it enough!
