Apache Protectors by Jenna Kernan
Hello everyone! Before I begin, I need to mention that this is not a Christian series and are not family friendly.
This series is published through Harlequin Silhouette Intrigue. Each book features a different Cosen brother and some kind of crazy case they need to solve. They’re Apache so these books take place on the Apache Indian Reservation and/or Black Mountain in Arizona.
When I mention it’s not family friendly, I need to make a note that each book contains at least once sexual scene. These are quite short and I easily skipped over them. Also, we deal a lot with drug cartels.
There were also several redemption/forgiveness scenes that we see so there are tons of morals. I honestly found the scenery quite beautiful and fascinating. Learning about the Indian Reservation life was also quite intriguing.
Family is also a huge theme in the books. No matter what comes their way, they have each others back. They still care about one another no matter different they are or whether or not they agree with each other.
In all three of these books, Jenna Kernan keeps you on your toes wanting to know what happens next. There’s suspense, there’s cute romance, and then there’s a dangerous case to solve. All three are quite impressive so far.
Now, let me talk a little bit about what each book is about.

Shadow Wolf is the first book in the series. This is 20-year-old Kino Cosen’s story. He is an elite tracker who is hunting for the drug lord that killed his father. After a decade of searching, he’s finally got the Viper in his sight. Well, until a beautiful woman gets in the way. This woman is the only person who has ever seen the Viper face-to-face and lived.
But this causes Lea to become a target. Kino finds himself needing to do everything he can to protect her, but it isn’t easy when the two believe in very different things. Kino doesn’t agree with Mexicans crossing the border illegally, but Lea Altaha believes in helping them. He also believes that Lea can help him get justice for his father, but he later realizes that she isn’t just another witness. When he gets the opportunity to take the Viper out, he has to choose between his need for vengeance, the traditions of his tribe and the woman he grown to love.
