Ford

Intrigue. Faith. Romance. Three things you can count on in a Susie May Warren book. Today’s feature is FORD.

Navy Seal Ford Marshall isn’t the kind to stand by and let a woman get hurt—especially when it involves his twin sister, RJ. So, when she makes the news, accused of sparking an international incident, he doesn’t care what it takes—he’s going to find her and bring her home.

But he might need a little help, so he calls on the woman who has had his back during the last three years—Petty Officer Scarlett Hathaway, former communications expert-turned Rescue Swimmer candidate. She’ll help him get into the country, watch his back, and…well, they might be able to have one last mission together before she leaves for a new life, a life he very much wants to be a part of now that she is off his team. Maybe he can convince her to give them a chance to kindle the spark that’s simmered between them for years. Navy Seal Ford Marshall isn’t the kind to stand by and let a woman get hurt—especially when it involves his twin sister, RJ. So, when she makes the news, accused of sparking an international incident, he doesn’t care what it takes—he’s going to find her and bring her home.

Scarlett Hathaway isn’t sure what future she wants—not when she suddenly has to care for her little brother. Maybe she should quit the Navy and start a life with the man she can’t seem to get out of her heart. So yes, she’ll help Ford find his sister. And maybe, along the way, figure out if they have a future.


But finding RJ somewhere in the vastness of Russia with the FSB chasing them will push Scarlett beyond even her courage and make her question everything she thought she wanted…including Ford. What will it cost her to love a man who saves the world? Navy Seal Ford Marshall isn’t the kind to stand by and let a woman get hurt—especially when it involves his twin sister, RJ. So, when she makes the news, accused of sparking an international incident, he doesn’t care what it takes—he’s going to find her and bring her home.

And when Ford is asked to choose between saving his sister, saving the world from a war, and rescuing the woman he loves…can he live with his decision?

My Thoughts

Susan May Warren has such a talent for balancing romance, intrigue, and spiritual nuggets in her stories. Ford is another installment in that category. Ford struggles with feeling like he has to rescue, to, in a way, control the outcome of a situation; he puts himself in the position of savior. But what happens when things keep going wrong?

I highlighted some deep Biblical truths that were presented as wise advice, questions, and internal conversations with God to apply to my own life. My favorite is the idea that God is not our back-up, He is who makes the way in front of us and we are his back-up. It was a timely reminded.

“You do not need to be the strongest one in the room. You have a breacher. Expect Him. He will not disappoint. Not because you deserve it, not because you work for it, but just Because. He. Period. Love. You. Full stop. End of story.”

I appreciate Scarlett’s questions that stem out of her difficult upbringing; they’re questions I’ve asked and and many others through the centuries. Susie doesn’t shy away from those questions, nor does she gloss over them, but show’s how God can overcome those situations.

All that faith is wrapped up in a page turning story with two pairs racing the clock across Russia. It was fun (Ford would NOT agree with me) watching Ford, a navy seal so prepared for every situation, be so far outside of his element.

I also enjoyed getting to see the perspectives of 4 characters as we also have RJ’s and York’s story.

I can’t wait to see how Coco and Wyatt’s and RJ and York’s story concludes as well.

Oh! And don’t forget to read the author’s note at the back. It’s a good one!

I received a copy of this book from the author. All opinions are honestly my own!
