Publisher's Summary

Protection leads to passion in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s dangerously hot Mountain Mercenaries adventure.

Dispatched to the Dominican Republic to rescue a kidnapped child, former Navy SEAL Archer “Arrow” Kane makes a startling discovery: another hostage - Morgan Byrd, a very beautiful and very well-known missing person who disappeared off the streets of Atlanta a year ago. She’s brave, resilient, and unbroken. All Arrow wants to know is why she ended up in a shack in Santo Domingo. All he feels is the desire to protect.

Morgan is done being the victim and is determined to find out who hates her so much that they want her gone - but not dead. Until then, she has Arrow, an alpha stranger who’s offering a warm and safe place to hide. But as the passion between them flares, so does the fear that whoever took Morgan will do anything to get her back. For Arrow, protecting this woman with a mysterious enemy is the most dangerous mission of his life. And it’s worth every beat of his heart.

Critic Reviews

“Stoker thrills with the sizzling hot, fast-paced, and occasionally heart-stopping third contemporary Mountain Mercenaries novel…Stoker sensitively deals with tough subjects such as [assault] (and its devastating aftermath) and parental kidnapping, and draws readers into a richly woven tale, ably setting up the next story. This series is perfect for romantic thriller aficionados.” (Publishers Weekly)

Fairly enjoyable

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the previous 2 in the series, but it was still ok.
I'm hoping Black and Harlows story next will be as good as Ro and Cloes, and Grey and Allys.

Really great

I just love listening to these audios. i would say they asre better than reading them as the narrator does an awesome job.
In this book Morgan has been rescued along with a young girl. Morgan and Arrows attachment is more than just been what appears on the surface but soon they realise that Morgans captives were paid to keep her there and she possibly w o nt be safe when shes at home. But the men are determined to keep her safe no matter what

Defending Morgan<br />Mountain Mercenaries, Book3

What a surprise to find a book about human trafficking to be so accurate as to the trials & tribulations a woman goes thru as part of the long arduous healing process. What talent to make such loveable characters while still staying true to the emotional journey of kidnapping as well as the emotional & physical abuse that occurs throughout the nightmare of human trafficking. I came across Susan Stoker by accident & now I'm a big fan. I look forward to the release of the last 2 books of this series & I'll start another of her series while I wait.

Predictable

This story feels anything but unique. This series is pretty much the same story with character name changes being the only difference.
I long for a series with life sized characters and real life situations

Romance & Action

3.5 Stars
I have been waiting for Morgans story since I listened to Defending Chloe a few months ago, that ending completely hooked me when they stumbled upon her! The entire series is about the Mountain Mercenaries, a group of men who rescue women and children that have been abducted. The Mountain Mercenaries are sent to the Dominican Republic to rescue a little girl who was kidnapped by her father. When recovering the child they found Morgan, who was kidnapped over a year ago from Atlanta. Morgans kidnapping was not random and the Mountain Mercenaries work to figure out who was behind it and why. Each of the books in this series has ‘insta-love’ happening between one of the team members and the woman they are rescuing. I always tend to overlook the romances where the couple falls in love in 5 minutes, but I did really enjoy the story in this one. It was a guessing game until the end on who was behind Morgans abduction and torture, and it definitely kept me interested!

Stella Bloom did a great job with the narration!

Fantastic Story

Wow I absolutely loved Defending Morgan by the ever so talented author Susan Stoker. This was definitely a story that kept me hooked and on the edge of my seat. Stella Bloom was fantastic she was able to capture the characters perfectly, I absolutely loved listening to Stella she just has a way with her reading of making you able to see the different characters. I recommend this great audiobook this is one story you won’t want to miss. This is number three in the series and I think for me it’s my favorite.

Love this author and narration!

Perfect blend of romance and action. I don't know how Stoker is such a prolific writer and stays so talented. She does not sacrifice the story for the speed at which she writes. Lucky for us! I liked Arrow and Morgan and always enjoy Stella Bloom's narration. The cover for the next in the series- Defending Harlow is smokin' so looking forward to that one.

I enjoyed the book Defending Morgan

I enjoyed listening to this book and how the story evolved. Without giving the plot away it concluded with an unexpected twist.
