Bodyguard Tate Marshall, has always been the family troublemaker…
Maybe it’s his propensity to get entangled in other people’s problems. Now, he’s in over his head because he’s desperately in love with the woman he’s tasked to protect, the beautiful Gloria, “Glo” Jackson, daughter of US Senator and presidential hopeful Reba Jackson. A member of the country band, the Yankee Belles, Glo was targeted in a recent terrorist attack designed to deter her mother from running, and Tate will do anything to keep her safe. Even if it means letting her go.
Country music artist Glo Jackson isn’t afraid of trouble…
Stubborn and brave, Glo isn’t about to hide from threats, at least the kind that won’t cost her heart. She’s already paid a terrible price for the war on terror, and she refuses to fall for a man who might die, especially because of her. Better to keep him away, even if it means sacrificing her heart.
But when danger threatens them both, what will they sacrifice to keep each other safe?
As the presidential campaign heats up and the threats deepen, so does the attraction between Tate and Glo. But what will it cost Tate to keep her alive? And what will Glo do to keep from losing another man she loves?
The gripping second installment of the Montana Marshalls series.

"Surrender is not a Ranger word. Fine. Let the battle begin."
Oh, my goodness. Susan May Warren ramps up the action and romance with each new book and series. After reading Knox, the first book in the series, I didn't think I could love any other Marshall sibling more than Knox. Then comes Tate with his broken, regretful past clamoring to shut down his bone-deep bravery, loyalty, devotion and desire to protect. He's impulsive, yes, but knows how to love deeply and to love the person for simply who she is without inflated expectations.
As a former Army Ranger and now a bodyguard, he's got a lot of baggage... but so does Glo, who uses her feistiness to build a thick wall around her heart. Despite the privilege, wealth, and fame as an up-and-coming country singer and the daughter of a senator on her way to the presidential race, Glo gets lost in other people's lives and almost doesn't realize who she is until Tate.
If you are a fan of Susan May Warren's books, you will absolutely love this book. If you've been waiting anxiously for this second installment of the series, you will be totally satisfied.... except now you'll be anxiously waiting for Ford's story. If you've never read Susan May Warren's books before, The Montana Marshalls series is the one to pick up; she will dazzle you with fun and sassy dialogue, raw emotions, intense action, fast-moving plot, and real and touchable characters who will take residence in your heart.
AND this book introduces Ford and RJ, the youngest twins in the Marshall family. Ford, a Navy SEAL, and RJ, the CIA agent, promise great action-packed stories of their own to be released soon! This story also ties in Reuben and Gilly's story from the Montana Fire series, Reuben being the oldest Marshall sibling. Though I haven't read the Montana Fire series, it was good to get acquainted with him and his fiancee.
A top pick for your summer read!

Reviewer: Anna Bottoms
Susan May Warren’s second installment of “The Montana Marshalls” series is another winner. In “Tate” she digs deep into the feeling of not quite measuring up. So many times we think we need to perform to perfection in order to be accepted for who we are. Tate is no exception. Unable to see the truth in the affection of his family and the love of God, he strives to be the best, never quite arriving in his own eyes.
In her own way Glo struggles with insecurities and doubts, comparing herself to the sister she lost and feeling like she can never measure up to the standard she thinks her mother expects.
The suspense amps up as Tate and Glo butt heads over his hero complex and her fear. Will they continue down the road of doubt, or with God’s help will they find their way to redemption?
We get an introduction to Ford and Scarlett in this book and by the end there is another mystery evolving. Fast paced and full of danger, sparks fly as the couples navigate their relationships.
There are a couple of places in the book where I got lost as it switched from one person to the next between chapters.
I loved this book and highly recommend it.
