The Ranger

Men Out of Uniform, Blaze #545

Former Army Ranger, Will Forrester, has returned from the war and has been recruited to work for Ranger Security, a security firm of former Army Rangers he’s friends with. His first assignment is to help Rhiannon Palmer find her elderly friend, Theo Watson, before something seriously happens to him. You see, Theo has been searching for years for his family’s long lost treasure that everyone thinks is just a legend that has been passed on throughout the years. He believes the story so much that he’s gone on trips in the past in search of this treasure. The difference of those trips from this one is not only has he told Rhiannon of his destination, but also he’s just been diagnosed with Diabetes and isn’t taking the necessary precautions he should be right now. Because of his health, Rhiannon is worried sick that something bad will happen to Theo and she’ll not be there to help him. She’s the only one that really seems to care for him and believes that there really is a treasure hidden somewhere. Now she just needs to find him before it’s too late.

Not knowing what else to do, she hires Ranger Security to help find Theo. When she first meets Will, there is a strong mutual attraction for one another.  She’ll do anything in the world to find Theo once and for all. As she explains the situation to Will, she gets ready to assist him wherever he thinks they should go. But Will doesn’t want her tagging along on his investigations because he feels she’ll be more of a hindrance than an aid to him. Spunky Rhiannon won’t have it any other way and she packs her suitcase to head on the adventure of her life while they hit the road to try and find Theo. Neither of them could ever imagine the adventure that they‘re both about to embark on.

Did Will and Rhiannon finally find Theo? If so, were they in time to help him? What happened between Will and Rhiannon during his investigation?

I really loved this story and found it easy to fall in love with Ms. Nelson’s characters. She made the story so believable that I felt my heart thumping inside my chest as they went from place to place in search of Theo. I was hoping they made it to him in time before something devastating happened. I also hoped that he did eventually find the treasure that he had been searching for over the past years. That way he could throw it in his family’s face that he was right all along. This is a story that once you start reading it, you don’t want to put it down. I assure you that you don’t want to pass this one up as a summer read!
