From USA Today bestselling author Katie Reus comes the ALL NEW Redemption Harbor series where sparks fly and so do bullets…

She faked her own death…

Skye ArĂ©valo left the CIA and faked her death to protect Colt Stuart, the only man she ever loved. Months later, a brutal kidnapping draws her to quietly infiltrate a dangerous cartel. Just when she thinks she’s home free, things go horribly wrong and she escapes with bloodthirsty enemies on her heels…only to find herself face to face with a bewildered and angry Colt.

He’ll cross every line to save her…

When Colt, a former Marine, finds out the woman he loved betrayed him, he’s shocked and hurt, but it doesn’t stop him from breaking every law on the books to keep her alive. Unfortunately, it might not be enough to stop a powerful enemy who will do anything to see the world burn and Skye dead.


Colt Stuart is an ex-Marine and covert CIA agent and he is heading out on an off the books mission to try to rescue a close friend believed dead. What he did not expect to find was his past love that he thought was dead to show up. He has been mourning her death and this throws him for a loop. He is equally angry and betrayed, and relieved and happy. He is protective, smart, dependable. and charismatic. He does not hesitate to stand up for those he cares about.

Skye had her reasons for faking her own death and leaving the CIA. She has her own protective streak and is fiercely independent. But she is also beautiful, funny, intelligent, adaptable, deadly, and pretty bad-a**. She has the power of a one woman army and plenty of connections. She still cares for Colt, but does not know how to manage to have him in her life and keep everyone safe from the threats that sent her into hiding in the first place. 

They both have a tendency to go "Lone Ranger," but they also work well together as partners. And his friends are adamant about having their backs. This time, Colt is not taking any chances. He is determined to keep her and not let her try to slip away again. I loved his attitude and determination, even when faced with resistance. They are sucked into dangerous situations where they will have to outsmart the enemies and rely on each other. Skye definitely has her own mind and opinions, but is also reasonable. They have a snappy rapport and hot chemistry. Their passion is certainly not dead.

This is an all new romantic suspense series. It has kidnappings, threats, big players, multiple enemies, danger, action, and suspense. But it also has reunited lovers with strong emotional connections. There is a core group of friends as the framework for the story with various skills: Savage, Mercer, Brooks, Gage, Leighton, and Mary Grace and a center point of their hometown of Redemption Harbor.  They have varying backgrounds and skills including CIA, security specialists, computer and information techs, former military, Doctor, etc. Most have known each other for many years and they form a tight knit group.  The author did a good job setting up the group and their connections, and the plot had some mystery and intrigue. It was fun trying to see how the team was going to approach the multiple possible antagonists and threats in order to try to keep one step ahead and keep each other safe.

I am looking forward to the next book, Savage Rising.

Skye Arevalo faked her own death to protect the ones she loved. In hiding for the last 6 months, she has stayed vigilant and continued to work her CIA contacts, even if they don’t know who she really is.

Colt Stuart goes rogue, off books and solo, in order to learn if the rumors are true. A friend he thought was dead is alive and captive. In his search, he learns that not only is his friend alive, but the love of his life is also still alive. He would have gone to any length to protect her, but learning of her betrayal will leave a mark.

This was an action packed story full of heat. Even before the two main characters meet again, there are bombs exploding and life or death situations. Once they meet again, the danger only ups the ante because they will each do whatever it takes to protect the other.

In addition to the tension as a result of the danger, the chemistry between these two is off the charts. Even though he thought her dead, the 6 months they have been separated has done nothing to cool things off.

This is the first in a new series and does a great job introducing the characters. It felt a little like coming into a story already in action, as the side characters are all a close knit group of friends with varying backgrounds. They rally around each other, fight for each other, and have built a great sense of community in Redemption Harbor.
