Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour & Giveaway for Tate, the second book of The Montana Marshalls series by Susan May Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Series: The Montana Marshalls, Book 2
Author: Susan May Warren
Publisher: SDG Publishing
Release Date: July 9, 2019
Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense
What 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.
IN MY OPINION
Few people write alpha males with hard heads and a dominant protective instinct as well as Susan May Warren. Add to that an intense romance, lives in danger, and a group of people who support each other, and is it any wonder her books are on must-read lists everywhere?
In the Montana Marshalls series, that group of people that supports each other is the Marshall family. Five men and one woman, all of who are involved in demanding careers and all who (hopefully) will find their matches.
If you, like me, are coming into this in book two, let me say that you’ll probably enjoy Tate more if you go back and read Knox first (and how great is it that you can get it on sale right now!). However, much of the backstory that occurred in Knox is hashed out in this one, so while you may feel lost with some of it for a while, it works itself out.
I admit, Glo drove me a little crazy in this book. For someone who Tate loves, she was too wishy-washy most of the time. She wants to be with Tate then she’s pushing him away and with another guy. She lets her mom manipulate her and doesn’t go after her own dreams. Plus, she’s completely blind to the way everyone is manipulating her life (even when she’s told so by her friends).
But the attempts on Glo’s life, Tate’s determination to stop them, and the addition of Ford and Scarlett (can’t wait for book three!) keep the fast-clipped pace of an intense suspense despite that tumultuous relationship.
And the ending? Yeah, that’s sure to pull readers in through the entire series. Did I mention I’m already looking forward to book three?
