Dangerous Relations, Baby Protectors #6 by Carol J Post

Book description:

He’ll do anything to save his niece…

In this The Baby Protectors novel

When her sister’s murdered, navy man Ryan McConnell insists on protecting Shelby Adair and their niece—especially after someone tries to kidnap little Chloe. But can Shelby trust the child’s uncle? After all, she’s convinced his family’s behind the attacks. But the longer Ryan shields them, the more Shelby wonders if becoming a forever family is their only shot at survival.

My review:

  I have reviewed several books for this author, and she is a large contributing factor in me getting hooked on the Love Inspired Suspense novels, which I have entirely too many of now. :)

 This is the sixth book in a series titled Baby Protectors, all written by different authors. I have read all of them, and enjoy the premise of people protecting babies. Plus there is the fact I have enjoyed all of this author's books I have reviewed.

  Dangerous Relations had likable characters, but none more likable than Ryan. I do my best to avoid spoilers, but fairly early in the book some information comes to light that gives him an out on protecting the small child, but he sticks with it.

 The book is very suspenseful, and though these books don't take me long to read, I did read it in one sitting, devouring every page, wondering what was going to happen next.....and there were surprises.

 I was pretty sure I knew the identity of whoever was after the baby, and was correct....but even then I didn't figure the whole guilty party thing out.

 These are romantic suspense novels, so you know the guy is going to get the girl. I used to not be so crazy about that, as a confirmed bachelor, but I hit a point where I actually enjoy that...so I did enjoy that angle of this, and how it came about.

 Post has added a great book to the Baby Protector Series, and shown why she is still on the Love Inspired author roster.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own.

About the author:

From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special events decorating company, Carol's résumé reads as if she doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love for writing. She started as a child writing poetry for family and friends, then graduated to articles and finally novels.

Carol lives in sunshiny Central Florida and writes fun and fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense. Her books have received a 2016 Royal Palm Literary Award and been nominated for a 2016 RITA® award and a 2014 RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award. She is also a popular speaker, presenting workshops on a variety of craft topics. Besides writing, she enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. Her two grown daughters and grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all that nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly-spoiled dachshund.
