A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Sunburst by Susan May Warren: Book Review

  **I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

When former Navy SEAL and lifelong bachelor Ranger Kingston is called upon to take part in a rescue mission to save his brother Colt, who has been kidnapped by terrorists in Nigeria, he is shocked to find among the hostages a woman he knows and could never forget.

Noemi Sutton was attempting to return a young girl to her family in Boko Haram territory when she and the girl found themselves taken hostage, along with several others.

And while Ranger Kingston may be able to get the hostages away from their captors, he'll need Noemi's help if he ever hopes to get out of Nigeria alive.

Her solution? Pose as husband and wife. But when her uncle discovers the union, he insists on a traditional Nigerian wedding--binding Noemi to a man destined to break her heart. Worse, she's discovered the real reason she was kidnapped, and anyone around her is bound to be caught in the cross fire. Including her so-called new husband.

She'll need to figure out a way to leave the man she loves if she wants to save his life.

Sunburst is the second book is Susan May Warren's Sky King Ranch series. While the primary story is unique to this book, there is another story that was continued from book one, and will continue on to book three as well. As such, while you might be able to read this one as a standalone, I would say it's definitely one that's better read in order as you might find yourself wondering what you missed. Fans of previous series will enjoy a few brief appearances from other characters as well. 

Susan May Warren is a top 3 author for me, and so I am always thrilled to read anything new she writes. She does a wonderful job of creating these epic adventure/suspense love stories that I personally cannot get enough of. Sunburst was no exception. The action begins right from the start and had me unable to put it down. I absolutely loved it. The African culture was really unique, and while some of the pidgin (local dialect) slowed down the pace for me just a smidge, I loved that she tried to keep it true to the local culture. This certainly adds some more authenticity to the story. There was so much going on in this story, and honestly, when you look at it on paper it might look a little over the top, but Susan May Warren certainly has the skills to pull off these big stories and still making them feel believable.

Overall, I thought this was a fantastic read and cannot wait to see what happens next!
