Promise To Defend was a great read. This book is a quick read and had me on the edge of my seat through the whole book. I love Diana's writing style and I loved the characters and the way the story flowed perfectly. The book has some suspense, some stubbornness and chemistry mixed all in one, which made for a great read.

Ronin and Olive have this chemistry that anyone can see; these characters are perfect. Ronin is a hot man that knows what he wants and is determined to get it. After losing his

This author never disappoints me, I know that I am getting a over the Alpha, tough guy, who falls hard and completely with his women. Ronin is doing a solid for his best friend, Jeremy and keeping his eyes on Olive , Jeremy's sister in law while he is on his honeymoon.

I loved these characters Olive and her atti

Promise to Defend brings us another story of a sexy man from NES in Diana Gardin’s Rescue Ops series. I am seriously in love with these men and think I need to find some trouble to get into, just so that one of them will rescue me!

This time around we meet Ronin Shaw as he attempts to find closure on his past as it tangles with his present. He’s spent seven years mourning his wife and looking for answers and revenge. Ronin is NOT prepared for the whirlwind that ensues when Olive Alexander comes i

Ronin Shaw started working for Night Eagle Security after leaving the military. His best friend and teammate, Jeremy, asked him to keep an eye on his sister-in-law while he was on his honeymoon. So, of course, he agreed. How hard could it be? Much harder than he thought with Olive being so independent; wanting to handle everything herself. But when an ex is threatening her, she asks Ronin for help and protection.

Ronin is determined to keep her safe. This is especially important to him after not

Two broken souls. One that was given away without consent and the other died with his wife. When Olive and Ronin paths cross, their souls are given new life.

When Ronin was asked to watch over his best friends sister in law, he didn’t think it would be figuratively. With a few encounters with Olive, Ronin was drawn to Olive like a moth to a flame. Something attracted him to her. Olive was always self sufficient, organized and has a five date rule. With arriving back in the States, she thought sh

This is a new-to-me author and while I may not have loved this book, I think I'd give this author another chance.

Olive was a decent enough heroine. Like so many heroines in security company and military-style romances, Olive has a man in her past who was a bad person. In this iteration, Olive's former boyfriend is associated with the mob. He was controlling, etc etc and she finally got away but now he's back and attempting to terrorize her. As
