FORGED IN STEELE by Susan Sleeman, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"You get taken at gunpoint by a half-crazed woman and you come to the end of what you can do on your own. It's then you realize you have to fall back on God. "

Umm . . . yeah . . . a really good idea. But how did Bristol Steele find herself in such a precarious position to begin with? It's a bit of a story and a very good one.

When a newborn baby is kidnapped from the very hospital that Bristol has just contracted to protect, she is thrown into a melee of law enforcement agencies vying to return Luna back to her parents. As luck (we would rather say "providence") would have it, she comes face to face with the one man she has tried so desperately to forget, F. B. I. Agent Jared Wolfe. Clocks tick fast on kidnapping cases, so Jared and Bristol have no choice but to push their inevitable conversation to the bottom of their burgeoning list of things that have to be done. Neither of them can deny t hat it's just a matter of time before their past history invades their present circumstances.

"And you figure out that faith means finding a way, no matter what's happening, no matter how hard or tough it is, to know that God is real. That He's in control and fighting for you."

One of this author's best plots, and she has written so many good ones!

BackCover Blurb:
When a baby goes missing…
The ink was barely dry on the contract Bristol Steele had signed for Steele Guardians to provide security for a metro hospital when a baby is abducted from the birthing center. Horrified and devastated for the family, Bristol puts everything in her life aside to find the abducted child and return the baby to her devastated parents. But when FBI Agent Jared Wolfe steps in and tries to shut down her efforts, Bristol isn’t prepared for the emotions that resurface from their long-ago summer romance.

She’ll risk everything, even her life.
Bristol can’t back down and soon finds herself working alongside Jared. She struggles to make sure her growing feelings for him aren’t a distraction, but as she tugs at Jared’s heart and he makes his feelings clear, she’s not sure she’s succeeding. Maybe she does need to back off for the good of the missing baby, but that might leave her company’s reputation in the dirt and proving her abilities to her father has always been her driving force.
