“Stoker thrills with the sizzling hot, fast-paced, and occasionally heart-stopping third contemporary Mountain Mercenaries novel…Stoker sensitively deals with tough subjects such as [assault] (and its devastating aftermath)…and draws readers into a richly woven tale, ably setting up the next story. This series is perfect for romantic thriller aficionados.” —Publishers Weekly

Who could possibly hate a beekeeper enough to have her kidnapped, drugged, taken out of the country to a poor and dangerous section of the Caribbean, where she is repeatedly raped and almost starved? Morgan Byrd has been missing for close to a year, when she is accidentally found by 3 of the MM. A week or so before she is found, Nina, a 5-year-old terrified girl is put in the hovel with Morgan. The MM volunteer to find Nina and bring her home. Finding Morgan is a bonus, especially to Archer “Arrow” Kane, who feels an immediate affinity for a strong and brave woman.
Their escape and search for the evil who had Morgan kidnapped is engrossing and entertaining. Maybe the best of the story is the description of the feelings and fears of someone after they’ve been raped for a long period of time. The care and treatment of Morgan, and her responses is well-told with compassion and understanding. The who-done-it is also well-done and difficult to guess! A really quick and easy, but thoughtful story to read.
Morgan disappeared a year ago and he father has done everything he can to keep her name in the press. Morgan made me think of another of Ms. Stoker's characters, Fiona from "Protecting Fiona". They have a lot in common and yet there are different. Morgan learned to quietly accept what was happening to her, she is strong yet vulnerable. She instantly trust Arrow to get her to safety and that is what her focus in on, getting out of hell. She fights her way back and Arrow is there every step of the way to help her with whatever she needs but first they need to figure out who had her kidnapped and why. Because someone is out there waiting to to get her back.
This story is full of action and twists and turns. I have to admit that I didn't see the ending coming. Archer is so patient and loving with Morgan and he falls hard and fast. Morgan doesn't feel deserving of him and doesn't even know if she can be a whole woman again. Arrow helps her heal as do going to therapy. She is an amazing character and she really reminded me of Fiona in that they both survived so much even though there stories were different they were some similarities as well. It would be interesting to have a story where the two of the meet but that's just my opinion.
This story was amazing and the series just gets better and better. It was hard to put down and all I could think of was getting back to the book. I needed to see how this ended. But that is like that with all of Ms. Stroker's books.
I love the instant connection, and the car Arrow takes w/ Morgan throughout their story. Even when he has a misstep, he's quick to apologize & do anything & everything to make sure Morgan knows he's there for her. ESPECIALLY during the HEA portion of their HEA. LOVE!!!
We also get to see more interaction w/ Allye & Chloe & their men, and all the Mercenaries show a bit of their hearts. We even get to see more of DAVE, which is cool. AND we have the twisty-like-a-pretzel portion of the story, which is just as delicious! Thumbs way up for this installment of the series & once again the tease for the next book has me counting down the days!! : )

Defending Morgan is the story of Arrow & Morgan. Morgan has survived some of the worst trauma imaginable and is rescued by Arrow, who doesn't leave her side from the moment he finds her. Their story winds through the back streets and dangerous areas of the Caribbean and follows the two of them back Stateside where Morgan begins to heal and the Mountain Mercenaries unravel the clues to her kidnapping.
If you want like a great fast paced and thrilling romance with strong women and alpha males, look no further than ANY book by Susan Stoker.
Such terrible writing seems unlike her and, to be honest, it’s put me off reading any of the rest of this series. I’m disappointed because I’ve enjoyed all the other books I’ve read from her. Sad to say I can’t recommend.
My main fault with the story line was with who was behind the kidnapping and imprisonment and I found it a little light on being believable. But when has that ever held a book back (lol)
I can't wait for the next book in the series..
So much action and sadness in this story
I was so gripped to this story
I.m just glad it had a happy ending
