Book six and the conclusion of the Love Inspired Suspense series "Texas K-9 Unit". Dog trainer Kaitlin is almost kidnapped while working with newest trainee to the K-9 Unit, Warrior. Captain Slade McNeal comes to her rescue after hearing Warrior barking. Slade cares for Kaitlin and he determines once and for all to put an end to the crime spree that has been running rampant in Sagebrush, Texas, for the past six months.

This was an enjoyable conclusion to the series. The Boss of the crime syndicat

I have long been a fan of Lenora Worth and read most of her contemporary romances, but I confess that I had not read her suspense romances until now. I was intrigued by a law enforcement story line, particularly a canine story line and I was not disappointed. Having not read the other books in the series, I focused on this particular story. I thought the accuracy of a law enforcement officer's life as well as the trainer was good and I truly enjoyed the action in this book. Having not seen the o ...more

Publisher: Love Inspired Suspense
My Rating: 5 stars
This story is the conclusion of the K-9 series that reminds us of the consequences of redemption and retribution played out by two main characters. Throughout the whole series the overarching mystery has revolved around a man who cannot easily be identified, but is known throughout the crime syndicate as “The Boss.” He has
First Reads Review - Lone Star Protector by Lenora Worth

I should have paid more attention when signing up for this book, because I hadn't realized this was the sixth book in a series. Having not read the earlier books in this series, I was a bit lost, but it turned out to be pretty standard. The action was okay, and the romance was decent, but it just lacked a bit of complexity, a bit of steam. Not bad, but probably not something I would have signed up for if I had known more about it. It was ju
So I have heard many compliments about Lenora Worth. When it comes to defining goodreads I typically take the stance of "I know it when I see it", so It was not until I finished Lone Star Protector that I found it really worthy of the reputation. Given what is going on at last book, we already knew who might be the boss -- greatly reducing mystique and interestingness. But Ms. Worth twisted these disadvantages by her flexible structure and rhetorical logic with elegant in choice of words and sen ...more

Since K-9 Rio has been stolen, there have been a few distant sightings of him with someone all in black walking in the Lost Woods. Rumour has it that something of value has been lost in the woods & they need the skills of Rio to find it for them.

Only they don't know the commands to use to put Rio to work.

Obviously, the trainers at the K-9 Unit do, & Kaitlin Mathers is the perfect person for them to kidnap & get her to give the correct commands.

Except that they have to get past Warrio
Excellent wrap-up to this series! Love the K-9's! Great as a stand-alone or with the series. The stakes are much higher now for Captain McNeal; the Boss is acting in a manner even more personal than before - his son, his father, and the K9 trainer that he just might have an interest in. Great spiritual theme and demonstration of how the Lord would have us prioritize.

When dog trainer Kaitlin Mathers is attacked, Texas K-9 Unit captain Slade McNeal is determined to keep her—and what's left of his family—safe from harm. But soon Slade realizes nothing's safe, including his dogs, his son or the beautiful woman who's opening his heart. When Slade realizes the enemy might be closer than he ever dreamed possible, he vows to see justice served. But can he save Kaitlin before it's too late to tell her he loves her?

A great ending to the series and a good lesson about keeping your eyes on God and going forward, not letting the past dictate who you are now.

This book was okay. I liked the K-9 police dog aspect but the story didn't feel real. More talk about getting the bad guy then actually doing so and characters ruminated a lot. Someone is trying to kidnap dog trainer Kaitlin and captain Slade comes to her rescue.

"Worth's installment in the Texas K-9 Unit miniseries nicely ties up a lot of loose ends and finally reveals the identity of the Boss. The characters remind the reader that retribution is not for us to seek - but redemption is." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 stars

A good exciting story, and well written. It was a shame the previous writer in this series was so inept I already knew the "who," but this author did a great job on "how." The only reason it did not get a higher rating was that the issue of what would happen to the criminal's family was raised and not resolved.
This last installment of the Texas K 9 Unit series was a great story. The continuation was perfect as was the sweetness of the love of Kaitlyn and Spade. I have to say I had "the boss" figured out a few books back, but this has to be my favorite book in the series.
Because I am a Texan I could easily envision the locale, the people, and the scenery. And I am also a sucker for healing the broken heart of a romance that did not work out. Heart and Head sometimes take awhile to get onboard together to go on with life.
