The Renegade

Blaze #557 - Men Out of Uniform

 After serving his military time as a Ranger, Tanner Crawford desperately needs a change of scenery. Lucky for him the security firm, Ranger Security, which is owned and operated by former Rangers, hires him.

He’s given his first assignment in which he must provide security to a South American fertility God statue where it’s on exhibit at the Smithsonian and will now be moving to Dallas. Although this sounds like an easy first assignment, it’s not. You see, this particular statue has been the target of three burglary attempts while just being in DC. People want to get as close as possible to this statue because it supposedly gives off vibes for women to become pregnant. As a matter of fact, seventy percent of the women who have directly worked with it have become pregnant. So the media and all the visitors want to follow the exhibit all the way to Dallas.

Tanner thinks this is absolutely crazy that he must protect a fertility statue, but he accepts his assignment. Little does he know that things are going to become even more bizarre when he finds out that the liaison traveling with the statue is none other than Mia Hawthorne, his Lit tutor in college and former ex-girlfriend. Having to deal with the transport of this statue is the easy part, but dealing with the girl that he still has feelings for is going to be one of the toughest assignments he’ll ever take on.

What happens when Mia finds out that Tanner is her security detail? Do they use their time together to mend their bridges and possibly make a fresh start together? Do they, along with the statue, all arrive safe and sound in Dallas?

I found this to be a good story and enjoyed getting to know Tanner and Mia more intimately. I was hoping that they wouldn’t have any problems working together and that maybe this would be as good a time as any to clear the air between them. Ms. Nelson created well-rounded characters that had intense chemistry together and I found myself hoping that they would get back together and make a second go at a relationship again. Overall, this was a fun read for me.

Book Blurb for The Renegade

Ranger Security expert Tanner Crawford is lethally sexy. With his hair-trigger temper, smart-ass mouth and lady-charmer ways, he's no stranger to trouble. And it turns out that trouble's no stranger to him, either. Because Mia Hawthorne, the only woman who ever rocked his world, just tumbled back into his life. As a client he must protect!

Ah, hell. Anybody but her…

When Mia sees Tanner, her carefully ordered world screeches to a halt. It starts right up again though— in his bed! Sex with Tanner is still incredible. But he's a bad boy destined to break her heart once more… and she craves stable and predictable. Doesn't she?

Well, maybe. But first, she's going to find out exactly what she's been missing. And this time, she'll be the one to walk away.

If she can…
