Very good book. Someone is kidnapping adopted baby boys in the Maverick County area. Maya was unaware of this until Slade was assigned to protect them. There is something about him that puts her on edge but she can't deny that he can protect her son. As the attempts escalate their attraction also grows. Then Maya discovers that Slade's protectiveness is a lot more personal than he let on.

I liked Maya's independence and determination. She had survived a brutal attack that left her unable to have

Two baby boys have been kidnapped with a third one suspected of being next. U.S. Marshal Slade Becker had been working on the kidnapping case and offers to go protect the woman of the third infant they think is next on the list. All three of the infants were adopted and one of them is possibly Slades child.

Maya Ellison is the adopted mother of the third child. She came from a traumatic past and wants nothing more than to be a mother to this child and will do anything to protect him. Even though
2.7-3.2 Stars. Public Library 2/1/15. This story ended up being far more complicated then I was expecting. The characters were good and fans of the series should be happy since we get treated to all of the marshal brothers including their significant others. I only had two qualms with the story one the reasoning behind the kidnapping was really convoluted and the love with the characters seemed insincere almost insta-love. Up until that point I'd enjoyed the story. If you like mystery, danger, ...more

In Fossens romantic intrigue novel, Maya Ellison just adopted a baby boy. Unfortunately two other infant boys born on the same day, have been kidnapped. U.S. Marshal Slade Becker has volunteered to protect her as he takes them to the security of his family ranch. Its soon clear that both are willing to protect the child with their life and as danger mounts, their passion will drive them to do anything to protect their new found family.

An excellent addition to The Marshals of Maverick County

Delores Fossen has done it again.Renegade Guardian will keep you glued to what ever you are sitting on or laying on. When you have 5 rugged handsomely looking bothers all Marshall's ,what can a gal ask for. It all comes down to Family; the way it should be all the time. Delores Fossen please keep the Romance coming and the series to Harlequin Intrigue Suspense books. Especially ( The Marshall's Of Maverick County ).

Renegade Guardian the fourth book in The Marshals Of Maverick County Series was a very exciting book from the beginning. Marshal Slade goes to protect an adopted baby and the adopted mother. Two other adopted babies born on the same day were kidnapped. Slade thinks one of the babies is his. Intrigue and romance. Very good book.

Fossen delivers yet another page turner. Maya doesn't trust the dark-haired lawman who looks too rogue to be on the right side of the law, especially not with her baby. Slade volunteers to protect a baby targeted for kidnapping, but he has his own reasons why. Rich characters and an intriguing plot kept me reading until the end.

Lots of action in this romantic suspense but after awhile the events seemed a bit contrived. The romance lacked depth of feeling and was more like two people thrown together by circumstance. Marshal Slade volunteers to protect Maya and her baby from kidnapping.

"Laden with possible suspects, Fossen's story jumps from the first page to the last with action, suspense and a sizzling passion." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 stars

I really enjoyed the story and the characters, but the dialogue was not natural and sort of choppy. And too many things were introduced but never explained, left too many holes.
