This book is another heart pounding, non-stop action ride! Full of page turning thrills and chills. Just when I thought it was safe to breathe, the author pulls the suspense to the max level. Each time I read a new book by this author, it becomes my new favorite. I love, love how she writes. Traci Abramson truly is a master of thrills and suspense. I love the settings of this book too and of course the characters. Nolan and Elle were amazing. Nolan is a rookie Guardian, but I felt he handled wha ...more

Wow! I was mesmerized from beginning to end!.So exciting so I suggest that you buckle up your seat belts because this new to me author has done a fabulous job with this book.
So many twists and turns that I didn't see coming and I'm being honest here.
The author has me eagerly turning the pages to see what would happen to Elle next! She didn't disappoint. Some of the scenes were so realistic that I felt drawn into them immediately is how well this author writes!

Rookie Guardian Nolan is tasked with protecting Elle, who is literally running for her life after a tragic opener. This story will take you around Eastern Europe & into Finland - which is a first for this series. As always we get small interactions with past characters, I’m a believer that reading these books in order is a must. I did wonder if Nolan would have enough experience to take on the situation he was faced with, but there’s still a lot of assistance from Troy and everything i

Yes! Lately I've been craving books just like this. Suspenseful and fast paced with enough romance to keep me happy. This author is one of my favorites in the romantic suspense genre so anytime she releases a new book, it's cause for celebration!

I really love this Guardian series. I've been reading them since the beginning and they are all so good. I don't think you need to read this series in order although I'm pretty sure you will be happier if you do. Characters from the prev

Heavens to Betsy! Y'all better buckle up for this one. It's a fast-paced, fly by the seat of your pants ride. And I loved it! My heart was pulled in completely from the opening scene. I kept hoping that what happened really didn't happen. I didn't want to believe it. But you know when you're reading a suspense novel that it's going to be that...suspenseful and hard things are going to happen.

This book was a thrill to read and kept me engaged from page one.

Elle Jameson is on the run. She witnessed her sister's death and realized that the only thing that kept her safe was an allergy to lemons. Elle is undercover working as an army lieutenant. She is trying to track down a couple of missiles and a drone that disappeared. She finds herself in the custody of an elite group of operatives known and the Guardians.

I read book 1 in the series, didn't read books 2 and 3, but it didn't affect my understanding of this story.

The book starts with a tragedy for the main character, Elle, which snowballs into forcing her on the run. One of the guardians is appointed to help her, and from there it's almost non-stop action to the end.

Elle and Nolan are thrown together, living in close quarters and spending a lot of time with each other, as he tries to protect her while she completes the investigation. Their relatio

Book #4 of the Guardian Series. On The Run will leave you breathless. An impossibly fast-paced novel sure to keep you up late. Couldn't put it down.

Here is an open letter to author Traci Hunter Abramson, you are making me miss a lot of sleep. I start your book and I can't stop and therefore lack of sleep occurs. Truthfully, I know it's my own fault that I love Traci's books and they always keep me entertained. This fast-paced fourth book in the Guardian Series has suspense and romance that keeps you reading and reading.

I have a hard time picking favorites. But…Traci Hunter Abramson books always top my list. I love her suspenseful romances. They are the best!

This one features Elle. She’s undercover at a German military base. Things go south fast when her sister is murdered in the very first chapter. Elle does the only thing she knows to do. Run. But someone’s still after her.

That’s when the reader and Elle meet Nolan. Nolan is a Ghost. He’s had to leave his own life because of the danger he was in. So he knows

Nolan's a fairly new Guardian and protecting Elle is his first solo assignment. Can Elle and Nolan find out who's behind a planned attack and prevent what could lead to WWIII?

One the run is what occurs with Borne Identity has a love child with an especially entertaining Hallmark movie (and I mean that in the best way) and this is the result.

Sometimes you just need a book that is light, fun, that keeps the action coming, and has a sweet romance. This is that book.

This is the story of woman who, when her cover is blown, flees for her life and comes into contact with a man who becomes her saving grace and ultimately, her guardian. The two then have to get through multi

With an emotional and action-packed beginning, On the Run will have readers starting off full speed on a suspenseful journey that keeps you sprinting along with the main characters as they are chased and race to thwart the enemy. I am obsessed with author Traci Hunter Abramson's Guardian series and this new novel is no exception. The title fits so well with the pace of this book as the tension remains high throughout the story. Nolan is a newer guardian and it was fun to see how his bit of inexp ...more

Elle Jameson's suspicion of a crime as she works undercover at an Air Force base abroad. Her subsequent rescue by The Guardians has her running and trying to escape danger with Ghost/Nolan to try to keep her secrets safe and undercover who is involved and behind the murder of her sister and what is going to be done with the secrets she has uncovered. Perfect blend of intense action, moments of digging to uncover the secrets and connections to

While this is a good story, the main characters sometimes behave rather stupidly, belying their training. Also, some of the romance seemed awfully similar to Stephenie Meyer's descriptions (like when Jacob imprints on Reneeseme).

Exciting adventure.

Elle and Nolan are a great couple. Some threads were tied up, but others left open. I look forward to the next book.

This was a well thought out novel. I loved the continuation of the guardians. The technical jargon was a bit too much for me, but I could still understand all the detail that went into the research for the story and appreciate it.

With all the political unrest right now in the country it wasn’t the getaway from reality that I was hoping for in my escape to reading. It was very realistic and well written.

"On the Run" by Traci Abramson was a good read. This novel had a lot of action and a few twists throughout the way. There were parts of this book that were a little hard to follow, but I think that is because of the author's research and knowledge on the subject. I was very impressed with this. The characters were very well developed and very likeable! All in all, this was a good read.

I received this book from the publisher through NetGalley for my honest opinion.

On the Run is a fast paced, heart pounding suspenseful adventure! Working undercover, Elle stumbles upon a treasonous secret and is now on the run from the people who want to silence her. Nolan is tasked with protecting her and together they work to uncover the truth.

The plot was well paced and the suspense is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. There were lots of unexpected plot twists and challenges for the characters to overcome. The author's knowledge of spy craft was evident through

This is an intense action paced adventure that had me engaged and on high alert from the start. …”For three weeks now, Ellie had set aside her true identity of investigative journalist and had acted under her alias of Lieutenant Elaina Martin to send her suspicions up the chain of command…”Her assignment to Germany was supposed to be her opportunity to take a break from high-profile cases for a while, a chance to rest and recover from nearly six months of undercover work in the Middle East.” Som ...more

When her uncle had sent her undercover as an army lieutenant, she had expected to find some evidence of misappropriation of funds or missing supplies, but uncovering a possible unauthorized access to highly sensitive material lifted her investigative sense to a new level. This wasn’t a story to be written. If her suspicions were right, this was espionage.

Traci Hunter Abramson is an author I can always rely on for a great suspense novel!

I am a fan of Traci Hunter Abramson from reading her Saint Squad series. I was thrilled to get an advance copy of her latest book. The Guardian series are stand alone books but with some cross over characters from the Saint Squad. It involves an elite team of "Ghosts" who help out in international situations. (Think elite CIA operatives.)

As, with Mrs. Abramson’s previous suspense novels, this one will also have readers reading all night to discover the ending! This book starts off at a fast pace and doesn’t stop until the explosive ending. This book was very enjoyable to read.

"On the Run" is another great addition to the Guardian Series. Suspense, action and a little bit of romance a long the way, Traci Hunter Abramson knows how to deliver a story that fills all these roles. And the story does not disappoint. I couldn't put this book down.

Our leading lady and man are intelligent, observant and well trained individuals who are thrown into the whirlwind world of drones, missiles and politics and it does not stop in the suspense department. It has you going from the fi

Story Notes

The fourth in the Guardians series is a great must read! I really loved the plot lines and the characters that Ms. Abramson created. The danger and the situations were realistic and entirely plausible. While not an entirely new plot, there were plenty of twists to keep it fresh and engaging. I was strongly reminded of the Bourne series, a real favorite of mine, which o

This book didn't stop once it got going. The suspense was steady and drove the narrative. Traci Hunter Abramson was masterful in this latest book in her guardians series. I will admit I haven't read a guardian's book before now, but I will be changing that shortly.

I think my heart was racing through most of the story and trying to unravel the mystery was enough to keep my brain going. There was some romance, but it was secondary to the larger story. Who was out to get Elle? and why?
