Well, at least it was better than Ranger Protector, but that really wouldn't take much! Angi Morgan is a terrible writer, no bones about it. Dialogue is sloppy and all over the place. So is the characterisation. Heroine Vivian Watts is supposed to be a tough war veteran, but spends most of the book either crying or having panic attacks. And she was certainly TSTL: she runs into a hospital building in which a guy has just taken hostages at gun point, and a bomb threat has been called in, because ...more

Whether you’re a fan of romantic suspense, standard thrillers, or simply gripping and intelligent storytelling, RANGER DEFENDER is the book to read this year.

Texas Ranger Wade Hamilton has been reduced to desk work, and when one case comes up, he asks his partner Slate Thompson at Company B to do the leg work for him, so Wade doesn’t land himself in hot water. Vivian Watt’s brother is due to stand trial in a week for a murder Vivian is sure he didn’t commit, and Wade’s intuition tells him that s

Ranger Defender by Angi Morgan is the second book in the series and was a page turner from the first chapter.

I can always count on Ms. Morgan to deliver a fast paced plot with a descriptive narrative that keeps me in the action throughout the story. Vivian and Slate were two people that I would love to meet. Slate is dedicated to his job, friendly and absolutely smitten with Vivian from the first meeting. Vivian was one of the strongest women that I have met this year. She is dedicated to freein
Book 2 in a series and already brimming with serie-itis. Pacing is boggy, bread-crumbs laid out haphazardly, and convoluted cat-and-mouse style plot. Also, for a heroine with a military background I was disappointed in how much of a Rescue Fantasy this was.

I'm trying not gush all over this review but honestly, I don't care because I loved this story. It is unique, very creepy while putting the danger into a new level of scary. It is heart-wrenchingly sad with the exploitation of those we only should honor and respect, it is entertaining and heart-warming with the tight brotherhood the Rangers demonstrate with each encounter, and it is adorably sweet and sexy with the attraction and palpable connection between the hero and the heroine.

4 1/2 STARS!

A possible case explodes into more than this Texas Ranger ever expected right before his eyes! With the 2nd book in the Texas Brothers of Company B series, we interact with a few familiar characters from the first book and jaunt off onto another case that leaves us chasing clues and trying to put all of the pieces together. This book is slightly unorthodox in that we know fairly early on who the bad guy is, but the danger and tricks that play out still keep us playing a guessing game

When Texas Ranger Wade Hamilton finds a case that doesn't look/feel right, he talks to his friend and fellow Ranger, Slate, about it. Slate agrees that the details look suspicious so he talked to Vivian Watts, sister to a man who confessed to a murder.

Vivian is sure her brother didn't commit the murder he has been charged with. She's tried everything she can think of to prove his innocence, even though he has confessed. She has just about given up hope that she will find any evidence before his
The Second book in Angi Morgans, Texas Rangers of Company B series packs quite a large bang as first.

Wade is sequestered to doing desk duty and going through the old files of cold cases and unsolved crimes. He happens to be looking into a case, but not being able to check it out, Wade asks his friend and fellow ranger just to go and ask the sister of the accused a couple questions and make sure things add up!

Slate heads down to wear Vivian Watts works and attempts to ask her to meet him after

Ranger Defender is a fantastic romantic suspense book by Angi Morgan. Ms. Morgan has provided readers with a well-written book and loaded it with a phenomenal cast of characters. Vivian has spent all her money trying to prove her brother innocent of the murder charge that has landed him in jail. When Ranger Slate Thompson's co-worker talks him into looking over a case, they both fell something is off and Slate is the one that has to investigate. Vivian and Slate's story is loaded with drama, bit ...more

Ranger Defender by Angi Morgan is fast paced and will keep you guessing the entire way. Slate and Vivian are well-matched and both have a strong hand in solving the mystery. I enjoyed Slate in the first book in the series, so it was fun to see him get his own story. Morgan’s characters are always among my favorites and these are no exception. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

I loved this book it was just captivating. When Angi writes a book it is like she is out on horseback with the rangers and I enjoy that. Her covers are also really good. Angi hit a home run with this!

ANGI MORGAN's new series, BODYGUARDS IN HEELS, is a lot of her favorite reads. A little magic, a little suspense, a little comedy and a whole lot of love.

Angi is a USA Today and Publisher’s Weekly best seller. Her first book, Hill Country Holdup, went on sale the very night it won the prestigious RWA Golden Heart award.

She drags her dogs –and husband– around Texas for research road trips so she
