Hot Delta Force Cowboy and sexy female Army Ranger plan a wedding to trap a saboteur
Dallas Hayes muscled her way through Army Ranger training only to be considered a curse on her all-male unit in an operation in Syria. When half the team is killed, she’s left Injured, losing the lower portion of her leg and is medically discharged from the life she loved in the Army. A fight with her physical therapist at Walter Reed lands her at the Brighter Days Rehab Ranch in Montana with an offer to join the Brotherhood Protectors.
Retired Delta Force soldier, Vince “Viper” Van Cleave, did his time in the Army but hasn't managed to fit into the civilian world. What can an expert sniper do with his life when not shooting at enemy combatants? A widower, his first assignment is to masquerade as the groom of a former Army Ranger female and stage a wedding to smoke out a wedding saboteur. Together, they make a formidable team that might just make it to the altar intact.
Dallas & Viper
Dallas, a medically retired Army Ranger, is having trouble adjusting to life without a leg. She finds herself at Brighter Days Rehabilitation Ranch in hopes of working out some of her issues. While there, she works along side other former military men who are also adjusting to life without various limbs. At the ranch, she is not considered "less than" or a "curse" to the men in the unit. Instead, the men rally around and support each other.
Vince, also known as "Viper", is also retired from the Army serving as a sniper. Viper has also had trouble adjusting to life after the Army, not really finding his purpose. He is plagued with guilt for not being there when his wife and baby needed him and knows he's not cut out for a relationship. When Hank, of Brotherhood Protection Agency, offers him a job he jumps at the opportunity to make a difference. But when his first assignment has him in a "fake" marriage, he's not sure if he can play the part.
Dallas, raised by her father as more of a tomboy, is in over her head as a fiancé. She doesn't even own a dress or know how to apply makeup! Viper hasn't wanted to kiss or even hold hands with a woman since his wife died. If they can work together long enough to capture the saboteur before he kills someone, they will have proven their worth to Hank.
Quirky, fun, suspenseful.... I enjoyed how the girls supported Dallas and took her under their wings. Viper's ribbing of Dallas was highly entertaining. Dallas' yearning to be more feminine, but tough was very realistic. Dallas and Vioer made excellent partners and more. I loved the twist at the end! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a fantastic book. The plot and intrigue flowed smoothly and I couldn't put it down. I didn't have a clue as to the identity of the criminal at all. The characters were so genuine. I fell in love with them! I will have to go back and read from the beginning of the series as the secondary characters from prior books were awesome as well. I love when an author includes prior characters. It is like saying hello to good friends. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
A good addition to the series.
Montana Ranger's Wedding Vow starts off with a heart-stopping scene that grabbed my attention and and didn't let go. Someone is sabotaging weddings/newlyweds and a limousine carrying a newly married couple goes over a cliff.
While this book can easily be read as a standalone without fear of being lost, I loved that we got to revisit some of the characters from earlier books in the series.
A retired D-Force soldier, Viper is new to the Brotherhood Protector's. He is partnered with Dallas, a medically retired Army Ranger who lost part of her leg serving her country. They pose as an engaged couple planning their wedding, to try and draw out the saboteur.
The story had several heart-pounding moments but the scene where Viper rescues Dallas may be one of the most exciting I've ever read by Elle James.
I had two small issues with the story: 1. There was no mention of an engagement ring for Dallas. Even though it was a fake engagement there should have been a ring. 2. In the scene where Viper rescues Dallas he was cut up but there was no mention of patching him up (I can't say more without spoilers).
If you like romantic suspense, and hot former military characters, you should enjoy Montana Ranger's Wedding Vow.
An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.
