Welcome to the Instagram + Review Tour for Ned by Susan May Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!



Once again Susan May Warren pulls out all the stops in the latest installment of her Minnesota Marshalls series. Ned Marshall, a Navy Seal, has been in love with Shae for several years and is ready to settle down with her, now that his training is over. Rather than finding her waiting for him at the hotel where he left her, Shae has disappeared. With a little help from his family and friends, he learns that she has been kidnapped and is being held aboard a Russian gulag ship near Siberia.

Yes, this author is the best at getting her characters into nearly impossible and may we say extremely dangerous situations. But you know true love will find a way to rescue her and Ned is more than determined to get Shae back. Needless to say, in true Warren tradition, everything will seem to be worked out only to have them crash again and possibly even again. This author definitely knows how to keep her readers engaged.

As always, I loved yet another book. I am fascinated by how well Warren manages to keep all the connections straight between current characters and numerous others who have been featured in previous books. It is definitely fun to see familiar faces pop up unexpectedly yet the current novel easily stands on its own without the reader needing to know what happened two or three series back.

Readers who enjoy action, danger, and suspense, characters who travel from one side of the globe to another, and a bit of romance and faith mixed in for good measure will love Ned. Of course they will probably be tempted to go back and read every previous book by Susan May Warren to see what happened to all the other connected characters. Good luck keeping up!

The woman he loves…kidnapped. The stakes couldn’t be higher

After four years of training to become a Navy SEAL, Ned Marshall is finally ready to marry the woman of his dreams, Shae Johnson. And Shae’s been uber patient, waiting, building a life as a free-lance graphic artist, moving around the globe to be with him. So, when she said yes to his proposal in Geneva, he fully expected to live happily-ever-after.

At the very least, he expected her to be waiting at the hotel for him three days after an emergency call-out. And maybe it was unreasonable to expect her to be sitting in the hotel, working on her watercolors—Shae, after all grew up in Montana, and she has adventure in her blood. So of course she’s going to go climb the beautiful Swiss mountains. Even make a friend.

But Ned isn’t thrilled with her new friend, and something about him doesn’t feel safe…

So she’s made some friends while waiting for Ned to return? Shae can’t believe that after years of sacrifice, Ned is actually angry at her—what did he expect, that she’d sit by the window? Dana and his friends are harmless, right?

Not so much. Because when Shae finds herself kidnapped, and brought to Russia, she fears the worst—she’s been swept up in a human trafficking ring. And when she’s sent to, of all places, Siberia how will Ned ever find her?

But Ned isn’t going to lose her—not after everything they’ve been through, and he’ll stop at nothing to rescue her. But when he discovers the real reason she’s been taken, he will have to become a traitor to his country if he wants her back.

Join the epic race to rescue Shae in the high-adrenaline book three in the Minnesota Marshalls series.
