About Missions of Mercy 
 Saving the day is all in a day's work

Point of No Return (Love Inspired Suspense)Book 1: Point of No Return 
An American boy and a warlord's engaged daughter have disappeared-together-in an Eastern European border country. Only one man can find them in time to prevent an international meltdown-Chet Stryker. But Chet is taken aback when he realizes the boy is the nephew of Mae Lund, Chet's former flame. When Mae insists on rescuing her relative herself, Chet knows he has to protect her from the enemy on their trail. Yet can he protect himself from falling for Mae again?

Mission: Out of Control (Love Inspired Suspense)Book 2: Mission: Out of Control 
Brody "Wick" Wickham is a former Green Beret turned security agent-with a 100 percent mission success rate. No way is his new assignment changing that. Even if it's protecting a diva American rock star while she's on tour in Europe. Except Veronica "Vonya" Wagner isn't just a beautiful celebrity used to having her way-she's the daughter of a U.S. Senator. And she's hiding a dangerous secret. When Wick discovers what's at stake, how far over the line will he go to keep them both alive?

Undercover Pursuit (Love Inspired Suspense)Book 3: Undercover Pursuit
The only way to get security agent Luke Dekker to a wedding? An undercover mission as groomsman. He'll bust the groom, a drug cartel heir, before anyone can say "I do." Then Luke can escape all this love and romance nonsense—and the too pretty bridesmaid/agent assigned as his "fiancĂ©e" for the weekend. Until Luke discovers that sweet, vulnerable Scarlett Hanson isn't his contact. Isn't an agent. Isn't trained for the high-stakes mission now trapping them both. And worse, Luke's falling for her—which is not part of the assignment.

My review for Point of No Return:

The Point of No Return is an exciting romantic suspense novel that has great pacing and intrigue. I read the book straight through and it held my interest the entire time. I loved the twists and turns and the international setting. The hero was complex and his history fit his current issues and behavior. The same went for the heroine.

The romantic tension sizzled between the hero and heroine and I found myself wanting them to work through their insecurities and find a way to make a long-term relationship work. The author did a great job providing barriers, then allowing the characters to apply faith and hard work to see things through and overcome obstacles to success.

Bottom line... this was a well-rounded book with suspense and intrigue that contained characters who learned from past mistakes and how to take calculated risks, and sometimes risks that didn't make much sense, but were the right thing to do. I loved the sacrificial love theme in the story, too. That always gets my heart pounding. Great read!

My review for Mission: Out of Control:

Another satisfying romance from Susan May Warren. Loved the Vonya character and the real Ronie underneath the stage makeup and the fear. The hero--her bodyguard--was very manly and heroic. I could picture him in my mind's eye as he worried for her and protected her from the unknown threat to her safety. And those! 

I loved the insight both characters gained as they got to know each other and faced their fears together. Sparks flew when they first met, and those sparks never let up. One of the things I love most about Warren's romantic suspense novels is the layering of her characters. I love how she used their common affection for blues music to knit their hearts together. 

Warren's characters are always so complex, easy to empathize with, and exciting to root for. The twists and turns in this novel were well done. Nothing is easily overcome, and that always makes her stories a delight for me to read. 

My review for Undercover Pursuit

Great conclusion to the series. I really enjoyed all three books. This one was fun because of the whole wedding theme mixed with the danger of the drug cartel. I loved Benito and Lucia's story even though they weren't the main characters. I found the whole supermodel sister and Duncan, the ex scenario quite enjoyable, too. There was a lot going on, but not so much that it was hard to follow. Last, the relationship between Scarlett and Luke was quite endearing. The whole set up was a blast to follow, not to mention the confusing line between them acting their parts versus their real feelings developing.

This was a fun, yet suspenseful read and right on par with the other books in the series. I have enjoyed all of the LI Suspense novels that I've read by Susan May Warren (four total) and this was no exception. I feel like the couples at Stryker International are my friends, and I've enjoyed getting to know them through each of their stories. Undercover Pursuit was a delightful, if not somewhat implausible scenario, but the author pulled it off and made it believable enough so it was a fun escape for me. I wanted to keep reading, and that's not usually the case with LI books.
