Pat's Review: Defending Chloe

Defending Chloe by Susan Stoker
Publisher: Montlake Romance (December 4, 2018)
Series: Mountain Mercenaries, 2
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Love is the best defense in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s explosive Mountain Mercenaries novel.

Gorgeous women don’t just stumble onto Ronan Cross’s remote property. But this one—vulnerable, victimized, and needing the kind of help only Ronan can offer—tells a story that makes his blood boil almost as hot as his need to protect her.

Since her father’s death, Chloe Harris has become a prisoner. Her own brother, a flesh peddler and low-level player in the Denver Mafia, is forcing her to sell her body for an endgame Chloe never saw coming: control over a vast fortune. Her only way out is to run—straight into the arms of the one hard-bodied man she can trust.

Defending Chloe could rain punishment down on the Mountain Mercenaries. Her brother has Mob connections and the local police in his pocket. But Ronan still has an edge—the unshakable loyalty of his deadly teammates. As well as an unquenchable thirst for retribution…and Chloe.

Pat's Review:

Mystery, danger, and action fill this latest story of the Mountain Mercenaries.

Chloe Harris has lived as a prisoner in her brother's house since she lost her job, her father, and every penny she had. Leon was “taking care” of her, but his idea of caring for her was keeping her in a locked room, beating her, and forcing her to work in his stripper club. In an accidental encounter she comes to the attention of Ronan (Ro) Cross, and he can’t get her out of his mind, and decides to find out more about her. Coming upon her in her brother's club was not what he expected. The Mercenaries go into action to rescue her, but by doing so open up a whole new world of danger, including the local Cosa Nostra.

Chloe comes to depend on Ro’s protection which leads to emotions that are far hotter than mere protection. The dangerous action continues to the last page, and so does the heat. This second in the Mountain Mercenaries is a great read, and the next book, featuring Arrow, can’t come soon enough! Each book can be read as a stand alone, but the first in the series is equally entertaining.
