April Hunt “will keep you on the edge of your seat” (Lori Foster, New York Times bestselling author) in this heart-pounding new romantic suspense.
Top FBI profiler Grace Steele was just a girl when she escaped the Order of the New Dawn, and she’s spent the last seventeen years trying to forget her time there. But when private security firm Steele Ops needs her help extracting a young woman from the secretive cult’s clutches, she’s all in. Even though the mission requires posing as the fiancée of the only man who’s ever broken her heart.
It’s been nine years since Cade Wright turned his back on his childhood sweetheart, and he’s never stopped regretting it. Now that they’re forced to work together, he knows this is his opportunity to show Grace how much he’s changed. But the deeper they get pulled into New Dawn, the clearer it becomes that the demons still haunting Grace are very real, and Cade will have to risk everything to keep her safe . . . including his own life.

Lethal Redemption is the second book in April Hunt’s Steele Ops series. This story brings us the story of FBI profiler Grace Steele and Cade Wright of Steele Ops security. Grace and Cade used to be together and in it for the long haul but 9 years ago Cade made a decision that derailed that plan and Grace hasn’t forgiven him. Now they have to work together to save a government officials daughter from a cult. The same cult Grace escaped from when she was a young girl. Grace has a lot on her plate from bringing the woman home safe, facing her past, and risking her heart to Cade again.
“She barely survived losing Cade the first time. She didn’t know if she could handle it again.“
I really enjoy April Hunt’s writing and her characters. My struggle with this was the plot line itself . One of my least favorite story lines are ones that have to do with cults. But that aside the story kept my interest and I really loved Grace and Cade’s relationship. They worked really well as a team. Their connection both emotionally and physically was realistic and believable. Grace is such a bad a** woman who doesn’t take sh*t from anyway and I admired that. She wasn’t your typical woe is me damsel in distress. Yes, she wasn’t perfect and had emotional trauma that still haunted her, but she didn’t let it hold her back. She took every situation by the reins and owned it.
“Grace was so exhausted from all of the heart. She wanted hope. She wanted trust. She wanted to redemption. Most of all, she wanted them
Lethal Redemption was a good addition to the Steele Ops series. I am very excited for the next book in the series and I am dying to get into Roman Steele’s head.
