What could unnerve a “real life” version of James Bond? Someone who has faced down the most vile of villains, run covert spy missions, and lived to tell about it? How about having to walk his niece down the aisle on her wedding day and have to say a total of four words? Thomas Casey is now the head of the CIA and a blizzard is thwarting his chances to make it to his niece’s wedding on time. Well, a blizzard and an attempt to besmirch his legendary name and kill him in an act of revenge. When a b ...more
Very good book with the action starting from the first page. Thomas is in Colorado to give away the bride at his niece's wedding. He is met at the airport by Johara, an agent he had worked with in the past. She basically abducts him, letting him know that he is under investigation for treason. The two of them have to put aside their pasts and work together to find out who is behind it and clear his name.

Thomas is the head of his division. He has put his second in command in charge so he can hav

Bridal Armor is a Harlequin Intrigue publication and released in August 2013. Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the DRC of this book.

Jo and Thomas had a personal and professional history together. But, their relationship in both instances had ended a while back. But, neither of them had fully gotten over each other.
Now Jo is in the unfortunate position of having to investigate Thomas. It is believed that Thomas is selling a biological weapon in the form of a virus to the enemy. Jo just c

According to Goodreads, this is book #51 in the series. I did not realize how long this series was when I requested the book. I requested it because I like the trapped together trope.

The cast of characters in this relatively short book was huge. There are a lot of covert agencies to keep track off along with the members of those organizations. Had it stayed on Thomas & Jo and Jason Grant, the GR rating would have been higher.

The suspense part of the plot was executed well. I had no clue who

4.25 out of 5. A tense, multi-layered tale well calculated to please those who love to read nail-biters that involve espionage and mystery mixed in with romance. It's all here, folks. It's set against the backdrop of a family wedding at a mountain lodge in Colorado, starts out as some family time away for the director of a branch of the spy community in Washington and turns out to be a witch hunt that is intended not only to destroy his career but possibly to end his life. It's a doozy and a com ...more

The Colby Series has been one of my favorite series since I started reading Debra Webb’s books many years ago (over 10 years ago). I started reading her books and realized it was a series and I always love to read series in order. I went to many used bookstores and searched online for the books that were out of print. I finally collected them up to the one I’d started reading and I’ve bought every one of them since including every book Debra has written. I’m hooked! This is a series that I will ...more

Over the years as the director of Mission Recovery Thomas Casey had made enemies - now someone was trying to take him down both professionally and permanently. When Johara de Rossi an Initiative Committee member who oversees government shadow operations turned up at the airport as he arrived for his nieces wedding, Thomas assumed the worst in spite of their intimate history. If he had regrets this late in his career, it was that he had let Johara go so many years before. With an enemy determined ...more

I liked it but felt like the ending was rushed. I think it needed to be longer or something. It had a lot of different familar characters and some I had not read about. Lots of drama, action. romance and snow. Their is also a bomber on the loose and a Russian
attack helicopter in Colorado.

For most of the book you are not totally sure who to trust. Who is setting up who? In fact I still am wondering parts of it.

Um, BRIDAL ARMOR is forgettable. It's the 51st in a series and I can't imagine, if the 51st is an indication, wanting to read the first 50! It wasn't a terrible read: there are two spooks, there is a bad guy. The two spooks were lovers and the flame still burns, which adds some intermittent romantic tension. A family wedding is in the background. There's a lot of snow in the Colorado mountains and one car chase! The writing is competent, but not inspiring. If you've enjoyed the series in the pas ...more

Libro piacevole e romantico i due protagonisti mi sono piaciuti e proprio per questo avrei voluto che i loro fossero gli unici punti di vista usati nel libro, invece abbiamo altri personaggi che ci regalano la loro prospettiva. Inoltre tutto inizia con un intrigo di spie che però poi si riolve più o meno con un sms un tantino anticlimatico, sì c'è anche azione e un malvivente da uccidere, ma i protagonista non deve faticare nemmeno un pohino per dissipare i sospetti su di lui, il che è troppo an ...more

I don't usually read Military/Spy book genres. I sure do appreciate the authors who do the research to do right for their characters. I know it will work out for the best at the end but it's like sitting on spikes until I finish the book. Debra had just the right amount of danger with enough love and laughter to see me through. Good Job! Don't be afraid to try this book. It's another good book for Harlequin.

In Webb’s romantic suspense novel, Thomas Casey has a target on his back and when Johara di Rossi abducts him while enroute to his niece’s wedding, he assumed the worst. Haunted by regret for walking away from Jo years ago, Thomas has met no other woman that can hold a candle to her. Snowbound in an isolated cabin, with a killer closing in, suspicion regarding her actions begins to fade as passion is reignited between them.

A strong addition to the Colby Agency: The Specialists series.
Bridal Armor by Debra Webb
MacGyver meets James Bond in this high tension, action packed romantic suspense that will keep readers on their toes and wondering who to trust. These agents and spies are a real thriller. Ms Webb has a way of putting the audience in her story and fans will be peeking around doorways and tip toeing down halls in no time.

Filled with spine-tingling action and adventure, BRIDAL ARMOR will keep you gripping the edge of your seat. Debra Webb weaves gritty suspense with a tad bit of romance, making for a superb read. You will want to get your hands on all of the books in the COLBY AGENCY series.

Entertaining first of the "Colby Agency: the Specialists" miniseries portion of Webb's huge Colby Series. Thomas Casey is an interesting character, and I haven't seen nearly enough of him during this story. There is a merry-go-round of characters interacting to save the wedding of Thomas' niece Casey. All the players get together, except for the protagonists, who can't get to the lodge where the wedding is being held, due to natural and other disasters. Suspense leads to a pretty anticlimactic f ...more

Books 51 in a series? No wonder I felt like I'd been dropped into a story that was already half way through! Things eventually settled down, though, and I was able to follow what was going on! This was a diverting romantic thriller, but nothing special.

It breaks the cardinal rule of category romance - secondary characters! They get almost as much plot time as the main couple! I think it's because there wasn't enough plot to fill an entire book. Debra Webb is a good writer. She was able to distra

Eventually they sideline the the assassin, make it to the wedding, and and end up with a wedding of their own.

Yes, the next installment of the Colby's is here. I found Deb by stumbling onto The colby's when looking for a long series to read. Now I read anything Deb writes. I hope the colby's continue for many more books.
