Release Date: May 24, 2016
Publisher: Harlequin – Intrigue
Genre: Romance / Suspense
Series: Apache Protectors, Book 4
This is a beautiful ending to the Apache Protectors series. If you haven’t already, check out my review for the first three books here.
Many of our questions are finally answered! I absolutely loved reading Clyne’s story. He is a tribal councilman for the Apache people on Black Mountain. He is an activist who believes in maintain traditions and culture for the Apache people. He’s very anti-government, especially FBI, white people, and Indian children being adopted outside of the tribes.
So what happens when he is forced to be protected by the FBI? Might I add that not only is Cassidy Walker a beautiful Caucasian FBI agent, but she also happens to be the adopted mother of his little sister that he’s trying to fight custody for.
As they continue spending time together, sparks being to fly. Will they choose to ignore their attraction for one another and continue their fight, or will they learn to fight for love?
Jenna Kernan has a way with beautiful storytelling. She is descriptive to make the story enjoyable and fun. It was really neat to learn some of the backstory of the Cosen family and their culture. I thought Jovanna’s sunrise ceremony was quite interesting.
Through the series, the characters become like family that it’s hard to let them go. I especially love that they are far from perfect, but by the end of the book, they have grown so much that they aren’t the same person that they were at the beginning.
As far as suspense goes, it wasn’t nearly as thrilling and suspenseful as some of her other books in the series. Yet, it was perfect because it gave a beautiful happy ending to each of the characters.
Note: This is not for young readers. There are some sexual scenes but they are brief and can easily skip over them.
