My ARC Review:


Another fantastic read by Melanie, book 2 in this Men of Hidden Justice series. Marcus has taken over from Matteo who has left the organisation after finding the love of his life. Marcus was his friend and never wanted to be in this position, but here he is, commanding the men and doing the jobs, seeing atrocities he cannot un-see, all the while rescuing the women and making sure that those responsible cannot do it again. Yet the leader continues to evade him and his men.

His gut instincts lead him to a hidden room and a chained and caged woman, who he takes back to his house, determined to protect her. Melissa (Missy) comes to realise that Marcus will not hurt her, that he is always there to calm and protect her through all her fears and nightmares. Missy has skills, intelligence and a fire in her soul, and is determined to help Marcus find the leader responsible for her kidnapping, knowing she will never truly be free until he is caught.

Marcus and Missy have some tiffs and arguments over this, but she is a brave determined woman, but Marcus just wants to protect her, not realising he has swapped one prison for another for Missy.

I loved these two, they were on fire together! Marcus never thought he would fall in love, but cannot resist the woman who came into his life. Missy has never felt so safe and protected as she does when she is with Marcus, but cannot continue to live her life in a cage, the leader has to be found. A great read from start to finish, gripping and intense, emotional and gut wrenching….. looking forward to book 3 in this series!




Meet Melanie:


New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of thirty-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.
