Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour & Giveaway for Tate, the second book of The Montana Marshalls series by Susan May Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Tate is book 2 in Susan May Warren’s Montana Marshalls series. Each book features a member of the Marshall family and brother Tate who played a strong supporting role in book 1, Knox finds himself the hero here. Still acting as Gloria Jackson’s bodyguard with restrictions, Tate is determined to keep her safe from the group who will do anything to keep her mother from running for President. But who are they and could everyone be mistaken about who is responsible for the attacks?

I’m two books in and it is already obvious that this is one series that readers will want to read every book in order. Other family members play strong roles in both books and I felt that I was getting some hints about what is to come in later installments. It has also become apparent that each of the siblings has mistakenly believed themselves inferior to at least one of the others for some reason and have made life choices in an attempt to prove themselves worthy. If only they could find their worth in God’s eyes! I think that is the message the author is trying so hard to get across in the story and to her readers.

As in most of Warren’s books, Tate is a balanced blend of action, danger, mystery, suspense, faith, and romance. Characters grow during the course of the story and do not remain stagnant. At times I found myself frustrated with both Tate and Glo as their relationship experienced many ups and downs, some of which seemed so unnecessary. It was fun meeting more of the Marshall family and I look forward to getting to know them better in their own book. My expectations were thoroughly satisfied and I recommend Tate to all fans of Susan May Warren and to any reader who enjoys action-packed, suspense-filled contemporary romance with bigger than life heroes.

I voluntarily reviewed a digital copy of this book provided by Just Read Tours. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.

What will it cost this bodyguard to save the woman he loves?

Bodyguard, Tate Marshall, has always been the family troublemaker. Maybe it’s his impulsive propensity to get into the middle of problems that don’t belong to him. But once in, he can’t stop himself from trying to solve them and that includes his recent dilemma. He’s in love with the woman he’s supposed 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.

Glo is as stubborn as her mother, and Glo isn’t about to hide from threats, at least the kind that won’t cost her heart. Because she’s already paid a terrible price for the war on terror, and she can’t let herself love a man who might die, especially because of her.

As the campaign heats up and the threats deepen, so does the attraction between Tate and Glo. But when they’re discovered, and Tate is fired, what will he do to protect the woman he loves?
And what will Glo do to keep from losing another man to the costs of war?

The gripping second installment of the Marshall Family series.
