Leah Giancarelli makes balancing her new role as a single mom look easy, but she’d have crumbled if not for her late husband’s best friend, Marcus. She has her issues with HORNET, an elite hostage rescue team—after all, Danny would still be alive if he’d never accompanied them on their last mission—but Marcus has always been by her side, a strong shoulder to lean on…

Until, after one impulsive kiss, he’s so much more.

Eaten alive by guilt, Marcus takes off, leaving both HORNET and Leah behind. Alone is easier. Safer. Because his feelings for Leah are all kinds of wrong, the worst kind of betrayal, and he can’t trust himself not to act on them.

But Danny’s death was only the beginning. Whoever hired the hitman is looking for something, and they think Leah knows where it is...

ARC received for review

This one had more angst than the previous books, but still just as much action and adventure as the previous books. It was great to see all the previous peeps. Ms. Burrows made me cry,again, or maybe I'm just becoming a sap. Now will the next book be Ian or him, and if it's hi ...more

Hello, I’m NICUnurse Stephanie and I’m a romantic suspense book junkie…and darn proud of it! Tonya Burrows is a new-to-me author, but I’m always up for new adventures with new friends, and if you add hot, tortured heroes with guns, I’m definitely all in.

Honor Avenged is book six in the HORNETS Series Tonya Burrows.

This was my first book by this author, but it definitely won’t be my last. While I dropped into the middle of a series, I didn’t feel lost or confused because she does an excellent job of introducing (or reintroducing) characters without detracting from the current main characters and their story.
