A high-octane mix of love and adventure
Kidnapped by rebels while serving as a humanitarian aid worker in Chechnya, Signe Kincaid has spent the past decade secreting out valuable information about Russian assets in the US to her CIA handler. Fearing for her daughter after being discovered as an operative, Signe sends her to former Navy SEAL Hamilton Jones for safekeeping. Signe is ready to give her life for her country, and she can hardly expect Ham to rescue her after breaking his heart over and over.
Hamilton Jones has never forgotten the only woman he loved--and he can't believe after all these years she's shown up alive. But can he forgive her for her secrets? And, when Ham discovers the reason Signe has kept her distance, he must choose between love for her and love for the nation he has vowed to protect.
Will he save the many? Or the few? And what is the price of valor?

This author pulls out all the stops in this third installment of the Global Search & Rescue series. She takes readers on a fast-moving, powerful, high-octane Navy Seal adventure you will not soon forget. From the start, the characters and their situations pull you in and grab your heart. Because the author has had readers in the midst of all these characters' lives from the beginning, I was hooked. I stayed up burning the midnight oil on this one. This is a nail-biting romantic, suspenseful read taking in natural disasters to chasing assassins in order to get top-secret information at any cost.
I like how the author showed flashbacks to when Signa and Ham met and went to school together as they deal with horrific situations in current time. I liked how the author weaves a natural thread of faith throughout this story. She does well to weave the element of family and all its struggles too. Another injured couple on this team is Jenny and Iron. They have serious issues to hash out and realize there is no perfect time to share their thoughts. A family friend, Scarlett, tells Jenny, “Iron has hero written all over him. He is one of the sweetest, most thoughtful--- “Generous, giving, and brave men I know. And more. He’s a man of faith, he’s a rescuer, he would be a great husband- and father…” She urged Jenny to stop running away. Just because Iron is not fulfilling her expectations does not mean he is not a good guy. Scarlett wants her to slow down and take another look.
This novel includes all the characters readers have gotten to know in the other books. Which makes this third installment all the richer and heart-warming to read. But if you have not read any of the other books, readers will not feel lost. But they will be curious to know more. They will want to go back and see where all these characters have come from. I was so captivated by this non-stop action-adventure I had to remember to breath.
This novel would work great for your next book club pick. I look forward to having my book club discussion on this novel. Wow! My head is still reeling from this incredible, extraordinary read.

The Global Search and Rescue series by Susan May Warren has been a rip-roaring, action-packed, suspense-filled crazy ride, and The Price of Valor is the nail-biting conclusion that wraps it all up.
I’ve been waiting for Hamilton Jones’s story throughout this series and was cheering for him to have a happy ending. Warren keeps the reader guessing with many twists and turns throughout the tale. It’s fun to see the other team members show up during the story to continue their relationships.
Hamilton and Signe are such intriguing characters, and I enjoyed learning more about their background. I admired Ham’s capacity for forgiveness in extremely difficult circumstances but also his capacity for love and compassion. Warren’s characters are always well-drawn and fascinating, which is one of the many reasons I enjoy her stories.
At times I felt the nonstop action was a bit over the top in this book with one adrenaline rush after another. Some of the happenings seemed quite unrealistic to me. Although I liked the team members, I was left feeling that I’d hate to hang out with them because they were constantly in danger from one thing or another. I was sometimes wishing for just one boring day. I guess it was a good thing there was a strong faith element, because they needed it to just survive and get through each day. All in all, it’s been a great series.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy from Revell Publishing through Interviews and Reviews. All opinions are my own.
