THE WIDOW'S PROTECTOR
Lark Porter thinks she'll find answers about her husband's death when she returns to their former home, but someone doesn't like the questions she's asking. She's quickly taken captive, and all that stands between her and certain death is a mysterious stranger telling her to trust him if she wants to get out alive. Hostage Rescue and Extraction Team member Cyrus Mitchell marvels at Lark's strength and determination to survive. The closer they get to freedom, the more dangerous the situation becomes. Once free, though, it takes all the skills and training Cyrus has to outmaneuver the deadly killers on their trail.

So this was fun. I mentioned this before but I'm not a fan of reading about cults, so that was hard to get past, especially because it's the majority of the book. We got to know so much about Lark, but nothing about Cyrus. At the beginning we hear a bit about a mission gone wrong and how he wants to prove that he still has it or something like that, but then after we find out what the girl's name was, nothing about his past, personality or back story is ever mentioned again, which I didn't appreciate.
