Donna Grant’s first foray in to the romantic suspense genre was for me in the main a success, The Sons of Texas series, offers up some well-loved tropes around the Loughman brothers and the woman who will eventually tame them, and I am interested to see where the story goes for this family.
The only two issues I had with this book were the beginning, in that you are bombarded with an awful lot of characters from the off, and it takes a little time to get used to who is who, and the actions of Natalie, towards the end (view spoiler). This is a story firmly set in the escapist fiction category as well, who knew that such a hotbed of espionage and villainy existed in the heart of Texas.
"This is a s*** storm of epic proportions."
There is no denying that this is an author that can pull any sort of story-line together, this is a family that has pretty much had everything thrown at them, and murder by their enemies seems to be the main theme of how most of the Loughman family tree in recent years has been whittled down. But that doesn’t stop Owen, Wyatt and Cullen all congregating at the family ranch, after being pulled back to the US from their various branches of the Armed Forces, to investigate the capturing of their father, after he had successfully fled from Russia with a potential world changing bio-weapon prototype.
The Loughman men were a brand all their own. They were as rugged as the Texas countryside, as fierce as the Texas weather, and as constant as the sun rising in the east.
There is a huge amount going on with the plot around their father, but each brother has his own issues going on at the same time, Owen’s is that he has come home to the woman he left behind fourteen years ago, it doesn’t take long for Natalie to realize that the feelings she had for Owen are still there, and Owen isn’t slow on deciding that he isn’t leaving her behind a second time.
She belonged with him. Always had. Always would.
Unfortunately, Natalie’s translating work at the Russian Embassy, also makes her a target in relation to the last mission Owens father was on, and the threat against her is as much of a situation for him and his brothers to deal with as the search for their missing father.
And that is just the tip of the iceberg of the plot for this one, as a series with a long running story-line, it is good to see that the next book, The Protector is due for release in January, because with so much going on it is certainly a story that as a reader you want to keep fresh in your mind as it develops, and I am looking to see what adventures Donna has in store for the Loughman brothers as the series expands.
This is a voluntary review of an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
The cover and blurb attracted my attention immediately and I was delighted when I got the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book.
Owen and Natalie were high school sweethearts with their futures all mapped out. Until Owen dropped Natalie straight after graduation without a proper explanation. It's been fourteen years since they last met one another and now fate has thrown them together in the midst of a crisis. It becomes clear that neither of them ever got over the other and that they are still crazy in love. Natalie tries to keep her distance to protect her heart while Owen realizes he made a terrible mistake in letting her go and he wants a do-over.
Owen is forced into the role of protector when Natalie's job in the Russian Embassy drags her into the middle of an international biological warfare scandal. She faces up to things rather pragmatically and I enjoyed her character immensely. Owen was swoon-worthy in the extreme and who doesn't love a hot, muscle-bound Navy-SEAL?
Owen's family background is quite dysfunctional and none of the brothers have spoken in years. The situation involving their father brings them back together. Wyatt and Cullen seem to have interesting backstories too and I look forward to reading their books.
I thought the mix of political intrigue and romance was well balanced. There are times when Owen and Natalie get it on that seemed a bit ridiculous with the threat looming over them but it's fiction so I just went with it. The romance scenes were well-written and I totally felt the strong connection between our couple and was rooting for them to get their HEA.
Donna is a great writer and the book flowed well - consistency was smooth.
In summary, this was a great read and a fab start to this interesting series. I look forward to reading The Protector next.
I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book as supplied by the publisher via Netgalley. All opinions expressed are my own.
I mean I really don't want to give anything away all I can say is the Hero follows Owen and Natalie as they try to discover who has kidnapped Owens father and what his father managed to obtain on his last mission that has put all there lives at risk.
This book really is so so worth any readers time it was just such a thrilling roller coaster ride full of twists and turns and pulse pounding action plus loads of chemistry between Natalie and Owen seriously they just sizzled in this. I will say this book is a cliffhanger not in the sense that you're left wondering but more in the sense that the next book The Protector is a continuation of this one there is three bothers so expect three stories before the whole story is finished. (seriously hope that made sense. ) I can see this series being a firm favourite of mine.
I received a copy from the author via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
It does end on a cliffhanger & as there are 3 brothers in the story I presume the reader won't get any definitive answers until the final book. I will definitely be reading the other books in the series
