Description

An Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestseller.

For a Mountain Mercenary and a desperate woman, love becomes a dangerous refuge in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker's novel of heart-gripping suspense.

Mountain Mercenary Hunter "Meat" Snow has a mission: eliminate the human traffickers scouring the barrios of Lima for vulnerable prey. But it's Meat who's taken down. Separated from his team and beaten within an inch of his life, he's left for dead. When he wakes, it’s to the intimate care of a beautiful stranger who knows all about survival.

Zara Layne was a child when a brutal murder left her orphaned and abandoned in Peru. Ever since, she's fended for herself on the streets, outrunning its predators. Trusting men is not in Zara's blood...until it warms to the exhilarating touch of the wounded hero who promises deliverance. As each other's rescuers, they return to Colorado for a new normal.

But when Meat disappears, Zara discovers how ruthless the past can be. With the help of the loyal Mercenaries, she's drawing on her own skills of endurance to find him. And for Zara, there's no danger great enough to come between her and the man she loves.

Just keeps getting better and better!

The more I read about the couples in this series, the more I love them! Meat and Zara were absolute perfection together, really, I couldn’t have them any more. I ached for them, I cried for them, I 100% was overprotective of them. Thrown together by a near-missed tragedy, it ends on another near-miss tragedy, really, Meat needs to be more careful. Growth, pain, happiness, joy, and a desire to do what is best for each other, this is a quiet, sleeper, power couple, who get all the happiness they desire

Now, about that ending, wow, just wow, what a set-up for the next book in the series, the grand finale 😊

Objection

I cannot comprehend why a person would write about sex trade and slavery and include explicit sex scenes. It seems like an oxymoron. The rest of this story is quite good.

Wow!

Susan Stoker has doe it again. Even though I guessed the bad persons pretty quickly. I still found myself second guessing myself through it.

Zara is a badass chick, and one of my favorite in the group of women. She worked to try to be the hero and rescue her man.

Way to go Susan

Holy Cow! Holy Cow! No, Really, HOLY. COW.

From the first paragraph Meat's story was different. It actually started as a cliffy in the last book, leaving us dangling while we grabbed the next adventure (thank heavens I'm a procrastinator and the next book was already out!). But sweet buttermilk muffins, this tale is Mountain Mercenaries on steroids all the way to the jaw-dropping end.

It's still got all the things we love about this series: the lightening-strike romance, the men who seem more than mortal, the women who have spines of steel, and the bad guys we truly loath. Yep. got it, and more, in wonderful Mountain Merc style. Meat and Zara's story is, by itself, harsh and beautiful, full of the gritty reality that helps make this series such a winner.

But this one, has...more. MORE! The best and worse possible cliffhanger ever, but, hey-the next book is already out. Just be prepared to grab it. You won't stop with this one!

A great addition

This is another great addition to this series. There was quite a bit of stress and danger in this one but the mountain mercenaries pulled together, as usual, and overcame the obstacles.

Strong heroine

This is the first I’ve read of this series and by this author. Zara is a very strong heroine! She has endured a lot. While I liked Meat, he was more the silent type, sitting back somewhat to let her take the lead. He’s an alpha hero but absolutely not the in your face, commandeering type.

He would do anything for her. As she gains confidence and really begins to acclimate, she takes control of her future and owns her decisions. She shows just how far she would go to help a friend snd save the man she loves.

Meat and Zara

I have slowly made my way through the Mountain Mercenaries series and have enjoyed them all. The men are all awesomely dedicated to helping women and children and the women they fall for are fierce survivors. Zara was lost and alone in Lima, Peru when she was only ten but against all odds she survived. The story line was good; Zara saved Meat and told him and the fellow Mercenaries her story, they got her home but getting accustomed to the US wasn’t as easy as she hoped. The stories people came up with about what really happened to Zara in Peru were crazy, and of course people starting plotting to get money from her now that she was rich. There was action and a little suspense but for some reason it still felt really slow to me, maybe because I saw it all coming so it just kind of dragged on. I think I continued on with this series just to get to Rex’s story… I have been dying to find out what happened to his wife and I had an inkling at the beginning of Defending Zara that we met her but now that she is revealed at the end, I can’t wait to jump into the next book!

Stella Bloom has done an amazing job narrating this entire series! I am so happy that Susan Stoker stuck with the same narrator for each book because Stella really brings all the characters to life.
