CHRISTMAS IN THE CROSSHAIRS Anthology (Elite Guardians #4), Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

Anthology of three novellas by  Kate Angelo, Kelly Underwood, and Sami A. Abrams, introduced by Lynette Eason

Deadly Holiday Hijack - Kate Angelo
"We're sorry to interrupt your lovely Christmas program . . . I've ordered my men to hold the people of this church hostage until the American government pays for their release."

Oh no! Oh no! Oh no! This wasn't the way that the evening was supposed to transpire. Christina Sherman and Grey Parker are watching a holiday horror scene unfold before their very eyes and immediately begin to put their special ops skills into practice . . . but the clock is ticking . . .literally . . . assuming they live through the night, that wedding date they keep putting off? . . . needs to be set sooner rather than later. A tightly wound plot, capturing wonderful character dynamics! Very impressive.

Silent Night Siege - Kelly Underwood
"Their relationship had survived some intense ups and downs, but surviving a crash landing might be the ultimate test. Assuming they survived."

Finally! Preston Whittaker and his girlfriend Laila Rabbinowitz were wheels up . . . together for a few uninterrupted hours on a private plane, headed towards a Breckenridge, Colorado condo with great views and a large, cozy fireplace . . . a ring in his pocket  . . . and . . . nowhere on his itinerary had Preston penciled in time to run for their lives. Laila's former military training gave her crazy good survival skills, but finding their way out of this predicament is taking terror to an entirely new level. A fast paced, electrifying, holiday trek toward together forever.

Christmas Snowstorm Standoff - Sami A. Abrams
"This weekend was no longer about getting married. It was about staying alive."

Just two more days and Lizzie Tremaine would be marrying the love of her life, Charlie Lee. Whether or not they would have any witnesses for the highly anticipated occasion remained to be seen, the snow blanketing Wild Sapphire Ranch in Montana was certainly beautiful, but was severely restricting travel in and out of the area. Never in their wildest dreams would they have imagined it attracting a killer, much less a young woman from Charlie's past. Hang on to your Christmas spirit, this story throws a lot of unexpected snowballs! 

BackCover Blurb:
It’s Christmastime and love is in the air. But when these three Elite Guardians walk into the crosshairs of trouble, they find themselves fighting not just for justice, but for the lives of the men they love in this riveting thriller collection!

Deadly Holiday Hijack by Kate Angelo

“Come out to Savannah, she says. It’ll be fun, she says. Boss can be in the nativity pageant, she says,” Yeah. Great idea.

Bodyguard Christina Sherman and her fiancé, former spec ops air commando Grey Parker just want to sneak away to beautiful Savannah, attend a Nativity Pageant, maybe set a wedding date. But when a group of terrorists take over the church and the whole thing is live streamed, they find themselves in a hometown version of a Die Hard Christmas movie. But will they make it to the happy ending?

Silent Night Siege by Kelly Underwood

Billionaire Preston Whittaker and bodyguard Laila Rabbinowitz just can’t get a break. Not only are their schedules so crazy they’ve put their relationship on simmer, but on their way to the mountains for much-needed togetherness…yep, their plane crashes. Suddenly they’re stranded on a remote mountainside in freezing temperatures, minimal food, wildlife, and no hope of rescue.

And then, the real danger starts. Someone deliberately caused the wreck, and that person is hunting them through the wilderness.

Now, it’ll take more than togetherness to survive…

Christmas Snowstorm Standoff by Sami A. Abrams

It’s finally time for bodyguard Lizzie Tremaine to tie the knot with the man she’s loved for years—fellow bodyguard Charlie Lee.

But maybe fate is still against them, because on the eve of their big day, a snowstorm hits. And, while it’s kept the guests away, it’s brought trouble in the form of a woman from Charlie’s past. More, she’s on the run from a killer…

A man who will stop at nothing to make sure Charlie and Lizzie never make it to the altar.

Now Lizzie and Charlie must battle the storm, stop the killer, and defeat the doubts that suddenly have them wondering if they are truly meant to be.

Three epic love stories. Three edge-of-your-seat thrillers. Three Christmases caught in the Crosshairs inspired by best-selling author Lynette Eason’s Elite Guardian series.
