73. What We’re Reading, and When You Re-Read a Series

Book After  the Storm - Maya Banks

The all-new Maya Banks romantic suspense, After the Storm, is here! Read about the sexy agents of the KGI team that perform jobs the government can’t, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.

Over the years, Donovan Kelly has fought relentlessly for justice, women and children always
holding a special place in his heart. Working side by side with his brothers, Donovan has
witnessed firsthand the toll it’s taken—physically, mentally, and emotionally—on his loved
ones, and the innocent lives caught in the crossfire. What he never expects is for his next
mission to happen right on his home turf—or for it to take a very personal turn.
Picturesque Kentucky Lake is the perfect place for a soul in search of safe harbor. A beautiful
stranger has arrived—desperate, breathless, and on the run from a dark past closing in on
her and the younger siblings she has vowed to protect. Donovan must now draw on every
resource at his disposal—if he wants to save a woman and the children who may prove to be
his destiny.
