I really enjoyed Ms Ryan's last WW2 historical but for me, this story was a bit of a disappointment. All the elements of a thoroughly intriguing story were there but there was just no chemistry between Savannah and Trent. Hopefully her next book will be more entertaining for me.

Another great WW2 book by Renee Ryan! I hope she writes more. Even though there was a happy ending for the hero and heroine, I still found part of it sad. Also, she did a stupid move towards the end that made me grit my teeth hard. Not as good as the first one but still a great book!

Wow! This book has it all: gorgeous, strong, intelligent hero, romance, suspense. Very, very well written. I only put it down when I absolutely had to and then picked it up again as soon as possible.

Courting the Enemy by Renee Ryan ISBN:978-0-373-82883-8
The setting is June 1943 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Savannah Klein Elliot had been betrayed by her husband and then he died. She returned to her parents and now they were throwing her a party at the Country Club. How could people celebrate when there was a war going on? It seemed they removed themselves from it just because it was not happening here on their soil. She was also uncomfortable because this group knew when Johnny died in a car cra

Savannah Elliott is a beautiful widow – and Trent Mueller’s next assignment. Her father is a suspected Nazi sympathizer, and through his relationship with her, he is hoping to gain the information he needs to help derail a Nazi plot to attack the U.S. With the safety of America on the line, he must stay focused on the mission. However, he is not prepared to deal with the attraction that overwhelms him, especially when he isn’t sure if she is involved.

Having been betrayed by her late husband, tru

Books to film are coming out in large numbers these days. But I have found a book evoking the films of old - when banter between men and women was more sizzling than showing skin, the stakes were high, and romance moved at a faster pace. Renee Ryan’s second World War II romance, Courting the Enemy, reads like a combination of Casablanca and An Affair to Remember. Inspired by a real incident during the war, not only does the story of spy Trent Mueller and his assignment Savannah Elliott pay ...more

I have to say, I LOVE reading Renee Ryan. Courting the Enemy is her second Love Inspired Historical I've read, set during World War II. I'm fascinated by that period of history and because of the prevalent Nazi threat we knew (or learned of) so well, the story has instant suspense. In this particular story, OSS agent Trent Mueller's mission is to discover the US industrial target of a Nazi attack. In order to do so, he must stay close to a known sympathizer--by courting his recently widowed ...more

Renee did it again!!! I AM in ABSOLUTE LOVE with Trent Mueller!!! ~Sigh~ Trent Mueller and Burke Hannigan! My 2 FAVORITE new LI HEROES!!! Where was Renee when I was in school?! LOL!!! I'm telling ya,... I would've ENJOYED HISTORY in school if I'd had Renee Ryan, or Jillian Hart's Historical romances to read ;-) I enjoyed learning about WW11, A HORRIFIC time in our history! and (the period of History around where my Grandma & Grandpa woul've been born around (39 and 40 respectively.)...I ...more
Renee Ryan has done it again! This one is full of heartbreak, intrigue, betrayal, historical details and settings, and, of course, romance. I can't imagine being faced with some of the decisions that Savannah had to make regarding who, or what, to be loyal to, and how much different types of betrayal hurt. How we deal with that is a very individual thing, and I admired Savannah's courage and strength of character. Learning a little bit more about the history of WW II and a tense, pivotal time ...more

I loved this book!!! I have never read any during the World War 2 era from Love Inspired. I thought it was a lovely change!
This was a great read, I was immediately sucked into the story, and I thought the characters were top notch. Loved Savannah's strength. There were a few moments in the book where she could have been the whiny, annoying female character I come to dread, but Renee wrote a girl after my own heart. Tender, yet strong. :)

The story is a little too bland to my taste as it was about how Trent trying to court Savannah with an ulterior motive; to get close to her for information about the betrayal of her father against the country. The story plot was so so only and the reason why i stick on till the end is because i thought the ending would be better but sadly, it was not.

I love the World War II setting. I am glad that Renee Ryan is writing more books for LIH in this time period. I really enjoyed Savannah and Trent's story. It was fast paced, especially the second half. I look forward to more WWI stories!

I loved the setting and the premise, but wasn't as engaged in the love story as I should have. A nice story, my detailed review will be posted soon.

Renee Ryan grew up in a small Florida beach town. Surfing didn’t work for her, but that didn’t keep her from watching others tackle the waves. To entertain herself during those countless hours of “laying-out”, she read many of the classics. It wasn’t until the summer between her sophomore and junior years at Florida State University that she read her first romance novel. Hooked from page one, she ...more
