Sunburst, Susan May Warren quote

Sunburst Review

When Ranger agrees to join a rescue mission, the last person he expected to see was Noemi, the woman who had stolen his heart years before. When they get separated from the rest of the team, pretending to be married became necessary. What he didn’t expect was having to marry her for real, or wanting the marriage to be real.

This was a fast-paced journey that will have the reader wondering what’s going to happen next. At one point, it seemed as though everything that could go wrong, did. But these seemingly horrible moments helped to cement the theme: though it may seem as though we’re invisible to God, He sees us wherever we are and He cares about what happens to us.

Sunburst is the second book in the Sky King Ranch series but can be read as a stand-alone, though it’s best to read the books in order for the full story. This is a second-chance romance that will encourage you to believe in fairy-tale endings. Ranger and Noemi made a sweet couple and so it was good to see how their romance played out.

I enjoyed seeing the Kingston brothers working together and repairing the bonds that had been broken. Readers will be reminded that God sees us and He can restore what had been lost.

I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publisher through NetGalley and Just Read Tours; a positive review was not required.


About Sunburst

When former Navy SEAL and lifelong bachelor Ranger Kingston is called upon to take part in a rescue mission to save his brother Colt, who has been kidnapped by terrorists in Nigeria, he is shocked to find among the hostages a woman he knows and could never forget.

Noemi Sutton was attempting to return a young girl to her family in Boko Haram territory when she and the girl found themselves taken hostage, along with several others.

And while Ranger Kingston may be able to get the hostages away from their captors, he’ll need Noemi’s help if he ever hopes to get out of Nigeria alive.

Her solution? Pose as husband and wife. But when her uncle discovers the union, he insists on a traditional Nigerian wedding–binding Noemi to a man destined to break her heart. Worse, she’s discovered the real reason she was kidnapped, and anyone around her is bound to be caught in the cross fire. Including her so-called new husband.

She’ll need to figure out a way to leave the man she loves if she wants to save his life.

About Susan May Warren

Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I’m a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I’m an adventurer — having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that’s why my characters can’t sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another — they’re too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories.
