Hours to Kill is the third book in Susan Sleeman‘s Homeland Heroes series. When FBI Special Agent Addison Leigh is attacked, her estranged husband and RED Team member, Deputy U.S. Marshal Mack Jordan races to her side.

Addy never wanted to leave Mack, at least, that’s what people tell her. Now she can’t remember him, his team, or the investigation that likely caused her car accident. Mack, on the other hand, remembers exactly why he ended their marriage: his PTSD-related nightmares, one of which caused him to hurt Addy. Never would he put her in a position for him – or anyone else – to hurt her again.

Ever since book one, I’ve been looking forward to Mack’s story. He’s a cowboy-turned Night Stalker-turned U.S. Marshal. A big softy who used to work fugitive apprehension. We’ve seen glimpses of his estranged wife, but getting to know her in this story, it is easy to love her, too. She’s strong and caring, even when her memories make her feel like a stranger to the people she used to trust with her life.

Hours to Kill may be the third book, but it is enough of a stand alone that you can read it without having read the series. However, the other books are great, too, and I think reading them in order will provide a deeper appreciation for this story.

If you’re looking for a suspenseful story, pick up a copy of Hours to Kill. It’s a unique romance that will give you all the feels while making your heart race as Mack and Addy battle against a deadly countdown.
