Tate | Book Review + Giveaway


What will it cost this bodyguard to save the woman he loves?

Bodyguard, Tate Marshall, has always been the family troublemaker. Maybe it’s his impulsive propensity to get into the middle of problems that don’t belong to him. But once in, he can’t stop himself from trying to solve them and that includes his recent dilemma. He’s in love with the woman he’s supposed to protect, the beautiful Gloria, “Glo” Jackson, daughter of US Senator and presidential hopeful Reba Jackson. A member of the country band, the Yankee Belles, Glo was targeted in a recent terrorist attack designed to deter her mother from running.

Glo is as stubborn as her mother, and Glo isn’t about to hide from threats, at least the kind that won’t cost her heart. Because she’s already paid a terrible price for the war on terror, and she can’t let herself love a man who might die, especially because of her.

As the campaign heats up and the threats deepen, so does the attraction between Tate and Glo. But when they’re discovered, and Tate is fired, what will he do to protect the woman he loves?

And what will Glo do to keep from losing another man to the costs of war?

The gripping second installment of the Marshall Family series.

I love everything I’ve read by Susan May Warren—and that includes her upcoming release, Tate. The second in the Montana Marshalls series, it’s an addictive read, full of romance and danger.

Acting as a bodyguard for the woman he loves has put Tate Marshall in quite a predicament. He wants to protect Gloria “Glo” Jackson from the threats she’s receiving, but she doesn’t want to hide—and isn’t sure she wants to love a man whose life is on the line. Added to the drama is wrestling with being good enough and belonging, and these two have plenty to sort through as danger threatens and escalates.

All in all, I highly enjoyed Tate. I will admit that it would have been better to start with Knox before jumping into this story, but as I read, I picked up what I needed to know. Now, I can’t wait to see what’s next for the series (but in the meantime, I’ll just go read Book #1).


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
