COURAGE IN THE SHADOWS (Coventry Saga #9) By Robin Patchen, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"That voice. Her kidnapper."

It was her worst nightmare, hearing that voice again. Formerly a model, now part owner in a private protection agency, bodyguard Summer Lake is determined to deliver justice for all those who suffered through that horrifying experience all those years ago. But she won't be doing it alone, her partner Grant Wright insists on sticking close. How close? Close, close.

"Ridiculous woman. Gorgeous, ridiculous woman. Apparently, she still had no idea how he felt about her."

After Summer's life is threatened once again, she and Grant go on the offensive, spending a lot of unexpected time together investigating the case, giving Summer a rare opportunity . . . to grow her faith ("God wasn't a consolation prize. He was the only prize worth living for.") and to accept the fact that loving someone else didn't necessarily exude weakness, but strength . . . for, "her fears were based on the false belief that depending on others would only lead to abandonment and disappointment".

A really sweet love story in the midst of what turned out to be a nearly impossible situation. In case you didn't know, international thugs play to win.

BackCover Blurb:
When she crosses paths with a killer from her past, can she survive long enough to step into her future?

Ever since she and thirteen other models were kidnapped years before, Summer Lake has fought to ensure that she can protect herself. But when her job as a bodyguard brings her into contact with a man she believes masterminded her kidnapping, her first urge is to run, terrified of being taken again. Instead, she follows the stranger, determined to bring him to justice.

Bodyguard Grant Wright fell in love with Summer the instant he saw her, a fierce protector standing in front of the other endangered young women he'd come to rescue. Years later, Summer still sees him as barely more than a coworker. Grant bides his time, sticking close in an effort to keep her safe and hoping she'll eventually open her heart to him. When her life is threatened, he's not about to allow her to fight her enemies alone. He'll stay by her side whether she wants him or not.

But Summer and Grant have an enemy whose global smuggling organization is so powerful, so pervasive, that it'll be a miracle if either of them emerges from this battle alive.
