The Warrior’s Way by Jenna Kernan

warriorswayTo trust and protect…

Tribal police chief Jack Bear Den will do anything to stop ecoterrorists. But partnering with disgraced ex-FBI explosives expert Sophia Rivas is trouble even his trail-tested skills never anticipated. Her out-there deductions are blowing up false leads, exposing treacherous lies–and sparking an attraction too dangerous for even Jack to resist.

By the book was never Sophia’s style. To save lives, she has to gamble on her instincts more than ever. If Jack doesn’t trust her, she can handle it–but letting him uncover her deepest secrets is a distraction neither can afford. And with the clock ticking down and disaster about to strike, getting too close may be the last move she and Jack ever make.


Loose ends are tied up, justice is served and a tempestuous romance will keep you engrossed with every word in Jenna Kernan’s latest Harlequin Intrigue. The Warrior’s Way is an outright thriller and is the final installment of the Apache Protectors: Tribal Thunder miniseries. This is Jack Bear Den and Sophia Rivas’s story. The story is fast-paced and draws you in instantly. The cast are shades from dark to light and each add that touch of depth to the plot and each new intense scenario will clutch at your imagination. Characters from previous books make special appearances throughout and it is refreshing and nice to meet them again for the final time. Jack is an interesting man. He is strong, intelligent, and protective and doesn’t wear his heart on his sleeve. The relationship between him and Sophia is complicated but it works. On the other hand, we have Sophia. She is the epitome of an independent woman and when I mean independent I mean kick-ass. At first I thought her and Jack were polar opposites since they never seemed to see eye to eye. But later, as the story progresses, I not only saw that her and Jack are more alike in nature but that they both want the same things too—they both want justice and they both want to see how far their attraction goes. But don’t for one minute think their romance is the typical—boy rescues girl they fall in love and then live happily ever after type of story. No, this story is much different. It is much rawer, deep and complex and family ethics is at the center of it all.


I have to conclude that Ms. Kernan does know how to paint a good plot which keeps your imagination rolling. Her writing is taut, intense and fluent. I was blazing through each short yet gripping chapter one after another to reach that high-octane end in a quest to know how everything pans out. And everything does end with a bang. All in all, I think this book would be a great treat for any romantic suspense fan looking for a dose of danger and romance. I wasn’t disappointed with the story and I’m sure anyone wishing to give this book a try wouldn’t be either!
