SUNBURST by Susan May Warren, Reviewed by Nicole Cook #ReleaseDay

Susan May Warren ramps up the action in Sunburst, her second installment of the Sky King Ranch series. Everything I love about Susan May Warren’s books continues to remain evident in this series…strong, handsome heroes with military backgrounds, fast-paced dangerous situations, family drama, romance, and beautiful spiritual messages incorporated into the storyline. Even though she has been a phenomenal writer over the years, somehow Susan May Warren’s writing just keeps getting better and better.  

While Sunburst COULD be read as a standalone novel, there is an overall plot arc and characters featured in book one that continue to play a role throughout the series, so it is recommended to read Sunrise first to guarantee maximum enjoyment of the series.

Sunburst features an international setting for the majority of the storyline, this time focusing on a terrorist camp and other areas throughout Nigeria, and the return to Sky King Ranch in Alaska. As Susan May Warren explains in her author note, Nigeria has a very special connection to her and her family. Although marriage of convenience storylines are not ones that I intentionally seek out, Susan May Warren creates a convincing situation in which this scenario is appropriate in a contemporary setting.  If Susan May Warren writes it, I know it will be a must-read for me. 

Sunburst ends with a cliffhanger that has readers eagerly waiting until November 2022 for Colt Kingston to have his own story. 

“If anyone could help her save the world, it was Colt Kingston.”

Sunburst is highly recommended for readers of action filled contemporary romance and romantic suspense.  You won’t want to miss this series!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine.


When former Navy SEAL and lifelong bachelor Ranger Kingston is called upon to take part in a rescue mission to save his brother Colt from terrorists in Nigeria, he is shocked to find among the hostages a woman he could never forget.

Noemi Sutton was attempting to return a young girl to her family in Boko Haram territory when she and the girl found themselves taken hostage, along with several others. And while Ranger Kingston may be able to get the hostages away from their captors, he'll need Noemi's help if he ever hopes to get out of Nigeria alive.

Her solution? Pose as husband and wife. But when her uncle discovers the union, he insists on a traditional Nigerian wedding--which would bind Noemi to a man destined to break her heart. Worse, the trouble they're fleeing has found them--again. It's clear anyone around Noemi is bound to be caught in the cross fire. Including her potential new husband.

She'll need to figure out a way to leave the man she loves if she wants to save his life.


Susan May Warren is the USA Today bestselling author of nearly 90 novels with more than 1.5 million books sold, including the Global Search and Rescue and the Montana Rescue series, as well as Sunrise and Sunburst.
