Lynette Eason continues her streak of excellent, high-action suspense with a dash of romance tossed in for good measure. Called to Protect does not disappoint.
Chloe St. John decides her K-9 partner, Hank, is the only man she wants in her life. Then they get a case involving not only sex trafficking, which may have a connection to her missing cousin, but also close contact with a handsome US Marshal.
Deputy US Marshal Blake MacCallum is not the best man for this job—he’s emotionally involved—the kidnapped girl is his daughter! Chloe’s not sure she can trust this guy, and she’s more woman than he’s comfortable being around. But Rachel, his daughter, is his life, he’ll do anything to get her back safely. His world is challenged when the kidnappers call and threaten to kill Rachel unless Blake kills a judge.
The FBI, the US Marshals, and the local police are in a race against time to find the kidnappers, protect the judge, and stop the sex trafficking ring. Action abounds on every page, yet Eason develops her characters so strongly we care about them, their problems, and their case. Chloe and Hank the K-9 are my faves. You’ll love the story and the way Eason weaves in characters from other novels to build continuity. Called to Protect rates five stars.

Revell, a division of Baker Publishing, gave me a copy of Called to Protect, but I was in no way obligated to write a review.
