My Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.


Made of Steele by Susan Sleeman is the fourth book in her Steele Guardians romantic suspense series.

Drew Collier is undercover with ICE when he has to detain Teagan Steele for her own protection. It’s a great meet-cute that launches a whirlwind investigation.

Antiquities, murder, and fake dates make this a page-turning suspense. I especially enjoyed the relationship between Drew and Teagan. The give and take, not to mention the sparks as the two independent law enforcement officers attempt to work together, and protect each other.

The investigation itself was one of discovery and danger than unexpected twists and turns. But that doesn’t take away from the suspense of the story—because Drew could be found out as an undercover cop at any time! The only thing I wish we could have seen more of is Teagan’s grandparents. I enjoy them.

If you haven’t read the rest of the Steele Guardians series, don’t worry. You can pick up the series here without feeling as if you’re missing anything. However, it’s a fun series you won’t want to miss.
