Targeted-#1 Firebrand Series by Sandra Robbins

***** 5 stars

What Cost Loyalty?

Sandra Robbins is a new name (to me) to watch in romantic suspense. Targeted, the first tome of the Firebrand series, introduces Ash DeHan,part of a special ops group who works for the government. After nearly an eleven year absence, an emergency calls him home,where he swore he would never return and to the woman he swore he'd never forgive.

After all this time, Lainey DeHan has sworn to hate Ash forever for deserting her. But now she has a son to consider and how she works together with Ash may determine if her 10 year old son will survive the immediate future.

I must admit, I have a hard time identifying with these types of situations. However, moving beyond that,the action was exciting and quick. I kept turning the pages to discover which direction the story would careen next. Robbins does a great job making the reader empathetic to her characters until you will wish you could pull the "puppet strings" to make situations different. So much more could be said, but I have a sequel or two to look up. Recommended for romantic suspense fans!

I gratefully received a copy of this book from bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review.
