The biggest risk she’ll ever take…

Tessa Henning is no damsel. But she’s definitely in distress. If her husband really is involved in the ivory trade, he’ll come after her when he finds out what she’s uncovered. Unfortunately, the only person who can help is Mac Walker. Stubborn, fiercely independent, danger-loving bush pilot Mac Walker—with whom she shares custody of their orphaned nephew. Though Mac’s no knight in shining armor, he can keep her and their nephew safe in the Serengeti while they wait out this storm. But he can’t protect Tessa from the strange weather brewing inside her, stirring up feelings for Mac she wishes she could ignore.

Review:

My first from this author, but definitely not my last!

I enjoyed reading Through the Storm–and now Kenya is added to my “places I want to go before I die” list. It sounds absolutely beautiful, if a bit intimidating…not quite the camping I’m used to 😉

Through the Storm‘s romance is a very slow build–for almost all of the book, Tessa’s married to someone else, and both she and Mac are very cognizant of that fact (thank goodness!). The focus instead is on finding out just what (if anything) Tessa’s husband is up to and trying to make a family of sorts for their nephew Nick, whom they both have custody of. I loved watching Nick open up to his aunt and uncle, and seeing him become more comfortable with his new life by getting to know Mac’s extended “family”. It’s clear that many of the people Tessa and Nick meet in this story were from previous series books, but this one works fine as a standalone if you haven’t read those other books yet.

They’ve already been added to my TBR, of course…and the pile continues to grow…

Overall this was a lovely read. Through the Storm is a heartwarming story about family, trust, and finding the life you were meant to live.

Rating: 4 stars / B+

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

He wants to take her child out of Africa…

The Busara elephant research and rescue camp on Kenya’s Serengeti is Anna Bekker’s life’s work. And it’s the last place she thought she’d run into Dr. Jackson Harper. As soon as he sets eyes on her four-year-old, Pippa, Anna knows he’ll never leave…without his daughter.

Furious doesn’t begin to describe how Jack feels. How could Anna keep this from him? He has to get his child back to the States. Yet as angry as he is with Anna, they still have a bond. But can it endure, despite the ocean–and the little girl–between them?

Does following her passion mean losing her way?

Marine Ben Corallis is an expert at facing death, but nothing comes close to the terror that grounds him when his wife is killed in a car accident the day he returns from duty. He’s left to raise an infant, a toddler and a ten-year-old girl who hasn’t uttered a word since her mother’s death.

It’s hard not to care for the widowed marine with three young children. Yet he’s still grieving, too burdened with guilt to fall in love again. And Hope Alwanga’s future as a doctor awaits her on the other side of the world, in Nairobi. If two such opposites can’t agree on a common country, how can they ever create a safe place to call home?

After a childhood enriched with exotic travels and adventures (both in books and real life), USA Today and Amazon Bestselling author Rula Sinara is now settled in rural Virginia with her husband, three boys and crazy but endearing pets. When she’s not writing, she’s busy attracting wildlife to her yard, watching romantic movies or researching trees on her garden wish list.

In addition to being a coffee addict, she’s also a 2015 HOLT Medallion Award of Merit winner, a 2014 National Reader’s Choice Award winner and double finalist, a 2015 Golden Quill Award Runner Up and a 2015 Book Buyers Best third place recipient.
