: The Minnesota Marshalls #1
Author: Susan May Warren
Publisher: SDG Publishing
Release Date: February 14, 2023
: Christian Romantic Suspense
Fraser Marshall is pretty sure his career as a Spec Ops fighter is over. Yes, he’s gone into private security, working for Jones, Inc, but his last gig ended with him wounded and taken captive. And those wounds just won’t heal. The last thing he wants to do is stick around his family’s winery pressing grapes. But what choices does he have?
The answer comes via a panicked phone call from his kid brother, Creed.
Help, Fraser. I’m in over my head…
Yeah he is, because he’s run away with a princess, with her bodyguard hot on the trail. And said bodyguard, Pippa Butler is going to hunt them down, no matter the cost.
Even if she has to join forces with a bossy, arrogant former American SEAL. But Pippa has her own set of lethal skills, and if Fraser gets in the way, she’ll leave him on the side of the road. Still, maybe he’s not a terrible side-kick. He is handsome, and he makes her laugh…
No, no, bad Pippa! She has no room for a man—an American—in her life. And Fraser hasn’t ever considered slowing down. Even if Pippa has him wondering if there is a different future ahead.
But there’s more to the story than a Romeo-and-Juliet runaway romance. Princess Imani has seen a murder, and the perpetrator isn’t going to let her get away. Will Fraser and Pippa find the couple first?
And if they do, can they work together to keep them safe?
It’ll be tough if their hearts get in the way…

Fraser is still processing his change of career, when he gets a call for help from his brother, Creed, who has run off with a princess.
The start to a brand-new series, Fraser is the oldest of the Minnesota branch of the Marshall clan, he is struggling to make sense of his future after an injury and trying his best to trust. He is a man of action, trained to protect and serve, I loved his dedication to his mission despite his initial differences with Pippa.
There was great character development over the course of the story, and I liked seeing Fraser and Pippa get to know each other and their relationship grow. The setting and characters may also be familiar to fans of Rachel Hauck, though this book could also be read as a standalone.
Overall, this was an exciting and entertaining read, filled with intrigue and danger, based in faith. Fraser and Pippa have entertaining banter, and I loved seeing how it changed in little ways over the course of the story. Action filled and laced with danger, this was a wonderful read that engages all the senses, I'm excited to see where the series goes!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
