Fire by Linda Rodante is the third and last book in the Warfare Series.
In Fire, a friend from the past joins Reese and Katie in their fight for freedom and justice. Together, they face their hardest battle as they go head to head with gang leaders and unseen forces.
Patriot is a man hiding from the past. When a friend is threatened by a leader looking to reorganize his old gang, Patriot must come home to protect those he loves, including Chloe Swearingen.
As an ER nurse, Chloe doesn’t have the time or energy for a relationship. After saving a gang member from drowning, she is caught in the middle of a war and a relationship with a marked man.
This is the third and final chapter of this series, and it was well worth the wait. While being introduced to new characters, the reader becomes better acquainted with old friends from the previous stories. The emotional side of this story was relatable. Through the lives of her characters, the author showed love, compassion, and prayer can truly make a difference. I think it’s Rodante’s best!
Rating: 5 out of 5.
I recommend Fire to anyone who loves Christian Fiction, Suspense, and Romance!

A Night Divine by Dawn Kinzer is part of the Melodies of Christmas Love: A Boxed Set Collection of Contemporary Romance Novellas. Other authors include Lynnette Bonner, JoAnn Durgin, Sylvia Stewart, Chautona Havig, Annette M. Irby, and Lesley Ann McDaniel. The following review is for A Night Divine.
It’s Christmas in Seattle and Camryn Tate is looking for a deeper purpose in life. When a tragic incident leads her to Trace Gardner, she discovers life has more to offer than her present shallow existence. Together, Trace and Camryn set out to change their world.
I enjoyed reconnecting with Camryn, Liana’s sister in By All Appearances, and watching her discover more about life and herself.
Dawn Kinzer delights her readers in A Night Divine. She gives them a lovely Christmas tale filled with warmth, good cheer, romance, and hope. But she doesn’t stop there. She digs deeper to ask questions: Does God have more for me? Can I make a difference? If so, how?
I received an advanced copy from the author. I was not obligated to post a review. All opinions are my own. I have preordered a Kindle copy of this book. Yes, it’s a keeper.

Claire Kingsley is a woman before her time. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to extricate herself from the past to become a trailblazer for others. Her fears and regrets, not to mention society’s prejudices, keep her from reaching for what she wants most. If the past has taught her anything, it is to not reach for things beyond the set boundaries. It doesn’t matter if you’re gifted by the Creator.
Mark Gregory is a visionary looking to the future. His mother lives in the past and refuses to let go of the old traditions. If she has her way, Mark will hold to the family customs and marry a good Polish girl. But Mark wants a new life, and this new life requires change. He has big dreams for his personal and professional life. With his plans in place, Mark expects his business to soar until a man approaches him with an idea surely to wreck his future.
I liked the way Claire kept reminding Mark that God is in control but refused to trust Him for her own future. Isn’t that the way things go? We can’t see what’s in front of us. The journey of loss and restoration is a reminder to never give up on the dreams God has placed in your heart and to remember He alone is in control.
There is a reason I am a fan of Ardoin’s writing. Her characters are always relatable and memorable. The humor between Mark and Claire was endearing, and the romance was clean and swoon-worthy. Once again, she has given her reader the perfect story!
I received a complimentary copy of this book for reviewing purposes. However, I enjoyed this story so much I pre-ordered an e-book copy to keep. Yes, it is that good.
