Annie Campbell has made a good life for her and her young son in the mountain town of Tidal Falls. She's dating the sheriff, owns a successful business, and has the support of the community.
So why isn't it quite enough?
Jared Martin left Tidal Falls a hotheaded youth, and now, after eight years in the military, he returns a bitter, disillusioned man.
Then he finds out he's a father.
When an old enemy follows and causes mayhem in the small town, can Jared overcome the odds to protect the woman he's always loved and the child he never knew, or will it be too late?

The Rebel's Redemption (Wounded Hearts, #2)Annie and Jared crossed the lines of friendship as teens, when the sun rose the next day, he was gone, leaving Annie alone, broken-hearted and unknowingly pregnant. Eight years later, Annie is a secure, happy mother, a successful business woman and in her most secret heart of hearts, she is still in love with Jared, and now he has returned. No longer the young man on a mission to live life, he is a sadder and wiser man who has seen the good, the bad and the ugly of life and the one of those uglies is after him with a vengeance and all targets are fair game. With imminent danger all around, has he the right to profess his love and ask for forgiveness or will his love make Annie and their son pawns to be bartered with?

Meanwhile, an undercover agent is outed, alone and armed only with her wits as a human trafficking ring holds innocents captive, will her partner be able to save her?

The Rebel’s Redemption by Jacquie Biggar is equal parts romantic entanglements, intrigue and suspense as we are taken to the quaint town of Tidal Falls, where evil shouldn’t be able to touch its citizens. Sharing POVs between characters opens up so much room for emotional connections with these players and rounds out this tale so well, it feels as if the events are happening, the town is real and the actions are not the machinations of a gifted author. Ms. Biggar has paced each scene and revealed each layer with practiced ease as love, hate and the need for redemption of the heart and soul make for a powerfully engaging read, no matter the season.

If you are a fan of military romance, high intrigue and multiple layers of plot twists, you won’t find a dull moment between these pages. Not too dark, not too fluffy, a touch of hearts and flowers moments with a little grit to go around, The Rebel’s Redemption is a wonderful way to escape for a few hours.

I received this copy from Jacquie Biggar in exchange for my honest review.
