Publisher's Summary

A missing woman leads the alpha heroes on their boldest mission yet in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s searing Mountain Mercenaries novel.

It’s been ten years since Rex’s wife, Raven, disappeared from a Vegas casino. Never losing hope, he even formed the Mountain Mercenaries to help find her - and other missing wives, sisters, and children. Now Rex and his fearless team are following a lead to Lima, Peru, where the rescue operation is greater than they imagined. 

A day at a time. That’s been Raven’s motto for a decade. Once held captive by an elusive sex trafficker, she has an indomitable will to survive. But Raven’s not ready to leave Peru. She can’t. Not yet. Because her liberation from the barrios comes with devastating consequences. One wrong move and all hope will be lost to an unimaginable hell. 

For the Mountain Mercenaries, the stakes have been raised. The threats are escalating. But Rex hasn’t searched this long, risked so much, and come this far to lose Raven all over again.

Awesome!!!!

I love all Stoker books but of the books that have come out since Shelter for Penelope this is my favorite. Holy smokes. Without giving too much away, it is slightly different with so much of the book taking place away from home and the road to togetherness isn’t smooth at all despite finding each other early on but soo worth the rough ride. I always hate when a series ends but this was a great series finisher letting us in on years later for Raven & Dave but also clueing in to the fact that the other mercenaries and families are thriving. Well done!!! Loved it. When I started this series this book was not listed as coming soon so I wasn’t sure we’d get Rex’s story. I’m SO glad we did!

Great ending to this series!

I have been looking forward to this book since the preview at the end of ‘Zara’...and was not disappointed!! Lots of bad guys and drama but the Mountain Mercenaries came through in the end and Rex/Dave finally got his wife back! The extended epilogue put a neat bow on the series. Narrator’s work on all of the characters helped to make this a series ending to remember.

Spanish

Loved everything about this book and author. The only thing I’m not understanding is how Arrow knew Spanish in 1 book but not the other?

Rex and Raven

There were some extremely powerful moments in this book! I love their love story. The 10 years apart was heartbreaking! I love that Rex finally found her! Sad to see this series of books come to an end!

Total enjoyment

I totally enjoyed this story -mostly. The plight of people captured and enslaved in human trafficking is made evident and your heart has to break for them. Raven’s story at least is resolved, her family gets closure and all ends well. I’ve really enjoyed this series!

Amazing story & narration

I devoured Defending Raven by author Susan Stoker all in one day and loved it so much! I believe this is her best series finale book ever and she’s had some pretty amazing ones. The storytelling in this book was amazing and beautifully written and narrated by Stella Bloom who brought the characters and story to life. Raven was a true heroine who survived the most horrific things ever and still showed so much love and compassion to others. And there’s Rex, who never stopped searching for Raven for 10 years and really showed how much of a hero he is in every way, totally swoon worthy. Their love story is one that will capture your heart and I highly recommend this book.

Loved

I enjoy listening to Stella Bloom, This is the final book in the series of Mountain Mercenaries. Have to say I loved this series. This is the story of Dave and Raven ..... It will make you want to scream at what could happen and cry with the joy of out come. Raven was kidnapped and not heard for 10 years. Dave never gave up hope . With the help of her Mountain Mercenaries he finds and brings home his one love.. oh they have problems to over come. I love how Susan Stoker also lets us know what happens to the other team mates and their women. Perfect book to end on for this brilliant series.
