Men of Mercy, books 1 – 4

Men of Mercy Boxed Set  (Men of Mercy #2-4)Men of Mercy Boxed Set by Lindsay Cross
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just finished books 1 – 4, and the second and third books are my favorites but the entire series is worth reading. Cross excels at strong women finding strong military men and each story is fairly suspenseful but not dark. A damsel in distress series.

This story had everything I love. Suspense, lots of action and a second chance romance. This was a real page turner and had me racing to find out what happened next. The way in which the military operations were explained was top notch and I felt like I was right there experiencing it all. I really respect an author when she does her research, and Lindsay Cross definitely did. This series has me intrigued and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Synopsis:

REDEMPTION RIVER: Hunter James didn’t want or need redemption. Until one mission turns his world upside down. He left Mercy to fight for his country and escape a broken heart.

Determined to move on, she finds another man, but discovers too late the monster hidden beneath his smooth smile. Struggling to find the conviction to live, Evie finds her life spinning out of control.  Then Hunter returns… Forced to band together to find the terrorist before its too late, Hunter and Evie must learn to forgive or risk losing the promise of redemption and their lives… 

RESURRECTION RIVER:Ranger James accepted his best friend’s death like a good soldier. With guilt. Regret. Vengeance. But a forbidden desire keeps pulling him from his mission…

A war widow, alone and broke, Amy struggles to revive her family’s crop dusting service to survive. Now she takes to the skies to find escape. Escape from the pain. From the guilt. From the earth-shattering desire for her husband’s best friend. 
Amy and Ranger can’t fight the attraction between them any longer. But one fateful night cleaves their new found love in two… 
Can they find the will to fight for true love? Or will an evil so shocking destroy their lives for good? 

RECKLESS RIVER:They say you can’t go home again. Jared Crowe never wanted to. 
Home meant facing memories of abuse and neglect. Of dark closets and evil nightmares. Of his own relatives intent on killing him. But now his brother’s kidnapping forces him to face those demons. Only this time, Jared isn’t a scared little boy. He’s a full-grown Special Forces operative bent on revenge. 
As a little girl, Sparrow Pickney risked her life to free two abused boys. As a grown woman Sparrow needs to earn a place in her adopted family’s business or be forced into a life of degradation. The chance to prove her family loyalty comes when she catches Jared spying on the compound and captures him. 
When Jared sees his captor, he realizes she’s the girl of his dreams and vows to rescue her from a life of poverty. What Jared doesn’t know is Sparrow may not be the savior he remembers…but the one responsible for abducting and torturing his brother. 
Jared is determined to find the truth. But that truth may be more than his heart can take. 

RAVAGED RIVER: 
Special forces operative Hoyt Crowe wasn’t just damaged… he was broken. After suffering brutal torture in captivity, his once lively spirit is shattered. Now his greatest adversary isn’t some unknown terrorist in a foreign country, it’s himself. 
Hayden James watched Hoyt slide into a private purgatory of post-traumatic stress disorder, taking her heart with him. No longer warm and loving, he is cold. Hardened. A shell of his former self. 
When an old enemy threatens Hayden’s life, Hoyt must find the strength to slay his inner demons or lose the woman he loves forever.
