Marc is part of the Saints team who has always had a love of planes and flying so when the group gets a new assignment to fly to Alaska it's a no brainer that Marc will be the one to do it. Hired to fly a Dr. Kenneth Rhodes to DC, he is shocked when he finds out that he will actually be flying his daughter Kendell Rhodes instead.

Kendell Rhodes works for her father and is now going to DC instead of her father. After the plane that she is on with Marc goes down in the mountains of Canada the two o

Ugh. I wanted Marc's story to be flawless and, sadly, it was flawed.

We finally get to hear Marc's story. After saving so many of the Saint's in previous books, it was their turn to save him. After getting his assignment to move an important doctor from Alaska to DC, Marc flew directly to the state. However, on the day he was set to fly out, the FBI threw a curveball at him, telling him he was moving the doctor's daughter instead.

While angry and frustrated, he still agrees to do it. He's eager to

*Gifted a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review*

This is Maryann Jordan 10th book in the Saints Protection and Investigations Series.This book is full of suspense drama and romance just what you expect from a Maryann Jordan book.

A Mountain Man and a Doctor could this unlikely couple really make it together well to find out they need to survive a plane crash and days in the freezing Canadian Mountains first, which should be easy for a outdoorsy survival Saint like Marc but for a doc

I got this book as as ARC

Great adventure story with suspens, intrigue and lots of romance in between. Marc, mountain man, survivalist and all around hunk, is on a covert mission to fly an important scientist from Alaska to Washington DC. Piece of cake, right? Last minute change of plans when Kendall shows up instead of her father. She's not his normal "type" but underneath her button up exterior lies a beautiful woman and he is inextricably drawn to her. Thrown together under the harshest of cir

I really enjoyed reading this book. I Loved Marc and Kendall.
Marc is hot and sexy and a pilot he knows how to survive outdoors and is the perfect person to pick up Kendall.
Kendall is a doctor who is quiet and shy and does not like the outdoors. until that is their plane crashes and they have no choice but to survive together.
The storyline was great and it held my Attention from page 1

I have recently become a fan of Ms Jordan’s books, so even though I had not read any of the previous 9 books of her series, Saints Protection and Investigation, I decided to give this one a try. It’s a stand alone, but I have to confess that at first , I got a little confused with all the characters from the previous books who were part of this story. Once I decided I was not going to worry about them, and concentrated on the storyline , I got into the book.

In this latest installment of the Saints Protection & Investigation series, we finally get Marc's book! Marc is a pilot and an outdoors man, so it's only natural that part of his story takes place in his plane and in the Canadian wilderness. His heroine was a bit of a surprise, because Kendall is a lab researcher and anything but an outdoors person. However, thrown into a desperate situation together with Marc, she realizes that she is much more of a survivalist than she would have thought. ...more

I've been waiting on Marc's story for quiet a while. No pun intended, but he flew under the radar for most of the series. Getting to meet his character showed he is as sweet and alpha as Ms. Jordan's other Saints characters, but he is also the real deal when it comes to being a wilderness/survivalist. When it becomes apparent that those skills are going to be what saves the day, I couldn't wait to see how he pulled it off.

*I volunteer to review this book with my honest opinion.*

Wow, Maryann Jordan books keep getting better every time. Marc is part of the Saints team, he's the pilot of the group of guys. Marc is an outdoorsman he spends his free time hiking or doing some camping basically a survivalist. Kendall is the opposite, she is more of the type to stay indoors finding a new research opportunity. when marc is hired to fly Dr. Rhodes back to the states he is surprised when he sees that Dr. Rhodes is a woman.

Surviving Love is the newest installment in my favorite series, the Saints Protection and Investigation series. This is book #10 but each story is a standalone.

Each member of the Saints team has his strength and when they need a pilot to fly a scientist from a conference in Alaska safely to Washington, DC, Marc is called in. But what starts out as a routine assignment quickly, becomes complicated.

Marc is hoping to one day find his soulmate, a woman who can compliment his active, outdoorsy life

You can't lose when you pick up any Maryann Jordan book! I loved Surviving Love and Marc Jenkins is definitely swoon worthy! In surviving love, we finally get the Saint's pilot and outdoorsman Marc. At the start of the story, we get a picture of the kind of woman that Marc wants in his life and I just loved how he finds the opposite. Dr. Kendall Rhodes is not outdoorsy at all, she personifies the typical researcher. However, throughout the story we start to see a completely different Kendall and ...more

This is the 10th book in the Saints series and I don't see it letting up anytime soon. Sometimes you can see that the series has run its course but I don't believed this is so with the Saints. I love everyone of the men and women featured and I really hope to see many more.

I really like to commend Maryann Jordan for writing strong, fiercely protective but at the same time sweet Alpha male characters. She also has a knack for writing characters that you wouldn't think would fit each other but so

However due to certain events he ends up with Dr Kendall Rhodes, daughter of Dr Rhodes instead of her father. From the start Marc feels uneasy about the sudden changes to the plan.

Another really great book in this series! This time it's Marc's turn to fall hard for the woman of his dreams. When Marc meets Kendall, he sees a frail, sickly scientist, but yet he is drawn to her. Kendall is a scientist who considers herself a nerd and no one someone like Marc would look twice at. When they are put into a life and death situation, Kendall finds strength that she never knew she had. Marc and Kendall save each other in more ways than one.

This was an action packed adventure. I lo

Surviving Love will jump start your heart with a great action filled love story. Maryann Jordan knows how to grab a reader and never let go. This is one of her most enticing action packed Saints stories ever. Her main characters are so well depicted that you are rooting for them from the start...talk about opposites attracting ...their chemistry was off the charts.

I absolutely loved Marc's story!!!! I have been waiting on Marc's story ever since I started reading the Saints series and it was so worth the wait!! Kendall and Marc are complete opposites...Marc is a strong alpha male who loves the outdoors and Kendall is very smart but sheltered young lady who would rather stay in her lab rather than dealing with the outside world. However their story shows that opposites do indeed attract and that when push comes to shove...you can do what is necessary to su ...more

I absolutely adored how they interacted with each other and I loved the storyline.  This book kept you on your toes with the action and twists and turns.

OMG! This story was intriguing right from the gitgo. This story is about Marc and Kendall. It starts out the two meeting each other but didn't get each other's name. Then when there is a break-in where Kendall works and her father is wicked back home, Marc is "stuck" taking Kendall to DC for a meeting until their plane crashes.

This story was very intense, fast paced and oh so sexy. Marc Jenkins is the Saint’s pilot. He loves the outdoors and is out there as often as possible. Marc’s newest assignment is to fly to Alaska in a small plane (yes, all the way from Mississippi), pick up a famous microbiologist who is working with Home Land and Olympic stake holders.

The flyboy & the doctor

I have really enjoyed all the Saints books and this one was no different! Marc and Kendall could not be two more different people and yet they're able to bring out what's missing in each other. Marc being the strong alpha male type and Kendall being the quiet, scholarly type. The more he helps her come into her own, the more growly he gets! The book has it all, drama, suspense, some chuckles an even a few "awww"s.

Although Marc is the last current Saint I'm hoping Ms. J

I was a wee bit bored with this story, I love that Kendall found some strength and actually managed to save Marc more than once, but there was a lot of minute details on things that while fascinating to someone who's interested in microbiology and the intricate detail of investigating everything. A lot of repeating her job over and over in great detail and it got to the stage I was skipping pages just to get to the story moving forward.
Still I appreciate the massive amount of research

Marc and Kendall's adventure

Marc and Kendal's story is still the great writing of Maryann Jordan, a great alpha with a heart and a independent heroine. This story has a twist that has Marc being the one being rescued as much as he rescues Kendal, who learns she's stronger then she ever realized. From the beginning to the end you'll keep turning the page, it has it all, love, acceptance, resilience and suspense! Maryann Jordan is always a one-click and have yet to be disappointed!

As an Award Winning and International Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo Best Selling Author, I have always been an avid reader. I joke that I "cut my romance teeth" on the old historical romance books. I’ve written as a hobby for over 30 years. In 2014, I finally gave in to the characters in my head pleading for their story to be told. Thus, Emma's Home was created.
