The Protector (Sons of Texas #2) by Donna Grant
Synopsis: EVERYTHING’S HOTTER IN TEXAS
When Marine Force Recon captain Cullen Loughman learns that his father’s been kidnapped, he will do whatever it takes to find him. In order to achieve his mission, Cullen will need to team up with the best of the best—someone who just happens to be the most stunning woman he’s ever laid eyes on…
This isn’t the first rodeo for ex—Air Force pilot Mia Carter. Still, Cullen’s bad-boy good looks and charm are distracting her from duty. . .and it appears that the feeling is mutual. As Mia and Cullen make their descent into a dark, dangerous world, their attraction reaches the boiling point. But is their desire worth the risk when a ruthless enemy is waiting in the wings—or will their Lone Star love conquer all?
Review: Book two of the Sons of Texas picks up where book 1, The Hero, ends and this time it is with Cullen, the youngest, and Mia, the freelance pilot who was the last to see Orrin. They follow the breadcrumbs to try and find his father and to stop the Saints from getting their hands on the bioweapon. This one is just as good as The Hero. Definitely a spy/Jack Ryan type story line but with romance thrown in. It is delicious, adventurous, exciting, and intense. Mia and Cullen are great together and the plot line is getting better and better. The bad guys from book one, aren’t actually bad guys, Orrin might have a new love interest after 20 years of mourning his murdered wife, allies are murdered and the layers that are slowly being pealed back against the Saints are just showing even more layers and the deeper and more complex the true villains become. It was so good.
