Unfaded Glory by Sara Arden (Home to Glory #2)


In Glory, Kansas, a fairy-tale wedding has local tongues wagging. But through this false engagement, can a wounded warrior and the woman he's protecting find true love?

Byron Hawkins doesn't want to be responsible for anyone ever again. The former Black Ops soldier is better at taking lives than saving them. But on a mission in Tunisia to deliver a package to safety, Byron is dismayed to find that the precious cargo is actually a hostage rescue, and that his orders are to take Damara Petrakis back to U.S. soil and hide her in plain sight—as his newlywed wife.

Back in Byron's hometown of Glory, Kansas, petite, fierce Damara keeps surprising him; she may be royalty, but she's fully trained in martial arts and will sacrifice anything for her country. As the town rallies around the returning hero and his bride-to-be, he's finding that it's way too easy to play the part, and after the hell he has seen, that terrifies him. Byron didn't want another life to save, but the passionate beauty he's sworn to protect might just turn the tables and save him instead.

  • My review: Unfaded Glory by Sara Arden  (Home to Glory #2)

    3 STARS

    I liked the plot of the story, characters, the romance but I did not like all the swearing and sex scenes.
    I also wish we had more scenes in Glory with a lot of the characters we met a bigger part of the story.

    Byron Hawkins  has a lot of guilt from going on a mission and he was the only one who survived.  He does not want to be responsible for anyone else in his life. He was a Ranger black ops.  He thinks he is being sent in to rescue a Jewel of Castallengna but instead finds a Princess. 

    Damara Petrakis  is a Princess of a small island.  She is supposed to wed a Russian Mob leader.  Others want her for power too. Damara wants to see her country be away  from royalty.  US wants to have a base on the island.
    I really like how Damara tries to make other little girls realize that they are special too.

    Damara is tired of being sold so she wants to do away with her innocent and she chooses Byron. Supposed to be for one day. Instead they are made for the media a couple who are getting married for love to protect Damara.  She will do anything to protect her people.

    Byron will follow orders for National Security plus he does not like the other choices for her protection.

    The setting for this book is all over the place.  Spain, Castallegna, Texas and Glory, Kansa

    I have one more book of this series ready for me to read and I am looking forward to it.

    I was given this ebook from Netgalley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give honest review of Unfaded Glory.
