As a former field surgeon in Afghanistan, Heather Fontaine is used to life-or-death situations. She just didn’t expect them to follow her home. When she returns from a party to find that someone has broken into her house–and threatened her friends–she assumes it is the stalker who has been following her and creeping her out. She hopes to find safety and peace of mind by leaving the city and hiding out in a small town. But trouble has followed her even there.

Luckily, a stalker isn’t the only one watching Heather. Travis Walker has been secretly watching out for her for weeks. As owner of his own security agency, it’s what he does. Together, Travis and Heather must figure out who wants her dead–and why–before it’s too late.

Active Defense: My Review

Active Defense takes us to Jennifer Fontaine’s story. Jennifer is a talented Army surgeon, yet civilian life brings unexpected dangers. Jennifer is threatened by an unknown stalker. She sets out to solve the mystery as to why this ‘visitor’ is tormenting both her and her loved ones. We also follow Travis, a figure skilled in surveillance and protection. Both Travis and Jennifer join forces to stop this threat before serious consequences occur.

Although Active Defense is part of a series, you don’t need to read them in order. Each book centers around a character in the all female Army friendship. I also love that all the women thus far are professional and strong willed. Romance between Jennifer and Travis also runs deep within their chemistry!

I very much appreciated the sudden turns Active Defense led me through! It’s certainly an engaging tale. I’m eagerly anticipating the next book in the series!
