by Megan Crane
After Mariah McKenna lands in the hospital with a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction to the shellfish she knows better than to touch, she realizes her cheating, vindictive husband would rather have a dead wife than a divorce. Afraid that he will succeed in killing her the next time, Mariah goes to Grizzly Harbor to hire one of the Alaska Force special operatives to help her stay alive.
Griffin Cisneros grew up hard in the desert heat of Arizona, where he learned the virtue of patience and focus–skills that serve him well as a Marine sniper. Few things bother him these days, but the minute Mariah turns up in Grizzly Harbor, he’s… bothered. There’s something about her that just gets under his skin. And Griffin discovers that she might be the one thing in the world that melts the ice in him, whether he likes it or not.
If he can just keep her alive…
Oh WOW!!! I thoroughly loved, loved, loved, Mariah and Griffin’s amazing love story in Sniper’s Pride by Megan Crane, book two in her Alaska Force series. We are introduced to Mariah McKenna on page one as she is getting out of the hospital with a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction she knows she didn’t cause. She realizes her cheating, vindictive husband would rather have a dead wife than a divorce. Afraid that he will succeed in killing her next time, Mariah flees town to travel to Grizzly Harbor to hire one of the Alaska Force special operatives to help her survive long enough to be able to enjoy life.
When Griffin Cisneros sees Mariah, who he is assigned to meet, he believes she’s a rich and wealthy princess who only wants to be pampered. He is determined to send her home not believing she needs their help. Mariah is truly not what he thought or expected. After growing up dirt poor, she’s friendly to everyone and determined to hide how scared she really is. Griffin’s biggest issue, despite denying it, is his attraction to Mariah, and not just because she looks similar to his ex-fiancé. Griffin thinks he’s a machine, able to do the job he knows he’s good at and not worthy of the love a woman.
After a night of hot sex melts the frozen Griffin he believes he has lost control of his life. Griffin is forced to leave his watch on Mariah and help with another case and its unexpected threat. It is at this point the suspense and surprise occurs, with Mariah’s life not just being in danger, but is on the line. The Alaska Force team, including Griffin, moves into action, locate Mariah, and save her from a very dangerous situation.
It was amazing watching the Alaska Force in action as they battled and rounded up the bad guys in order to save Mariah. All of them are surprised by the person truly responsible for the threats on Mariah’s life. Mariah’s second return to Grizzly Harbor is truly not to force her attention on Griffin. Instead, it gives Griffin the opportunity to open his eyes and truly see his feelings for Mariah and his need to keep her safe and in his life.
Ms. Crane wrote an intense, emotional and exciting romantic suspense filled with sexual chemistry, wonderful dialogue, and endearing characters that is not to be missed. This story grabbed me and did not let go until I reached the end. I highly recommend Sniper’s Pride and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!
