– Susan May Warren –
Sky King Ranch #2
Published 7 June 2022
Another breathtaking romantic suspense novel from Susan May Warren. If the first book in this series took readers to Alaska, Sunburst is a celebration of Nigeria. From escaping terrorists to outrunning men intent on revenge, Nigerian weddings, secrets and a romance revived, Sunburst is the perfect mix of romance and action.
Ranger Kingston, former Navy SEAL, is on a mission in Africa to rescue his brother Colt. It’s the very last place he expects to find the woman who ran away with his heart. In the group of hostages is none other than Noemi Sutton. As they work together to escape capture and journey home, Noemi and Ranger have the time to work through what kept them apart all those years ago.
Warren pens such a captivating and engaging story. You won’t want to miss a moment of this thrilling book – neither the romance or the action.
We have some awesome romance tropes in this book – like a pretend marriage that quickly turns into a wedding. When Noemi poses as Ranger’s wife to keep him safe, she doesn’t realise her uncle will arrive on the scene and decide to throw them a proper Nigerian wedding. Ranger and Noemi go along with it. They say it’s to keep up their ruse and keep each other safe, but it is clear to the reader just how much they love each other and how scared they both are to share this love. Of course, the wedding is just the first step and by no means the end of the story. There are bombs to survive, terrorists to outrun, deadly plagues to decode and secrets that still sit between them. And chemistry. There is loads and loads of chemistry to wade through. A few kisses as well.
As book two in this series, the ending gives us a nice hook for book three, which will continue the overarching story thread that started in book one, and this delightful series about the Kingston men and the women they fall in love with.
I loved that this book gave us some character diversity (a black female main character!!!) which is so often missing in Christian fiction.
I can’t wait to continue this series with book three releasing later this year.
