About The Mercy of Missions series:

Three heroes, all on missions of mercy, who discover that God not only saves us from evil, but from the darkness inside.

Point of No Return: An American boy and a warlord's engaged daughter have disappeared-together-in an Eastern European border country. Only one man can find them in time to prevent an international meltdown-Chet Stryker. But Chet is taken aback when he realizes the boy is the nephew of Mae Lund, Chet's former flame. When Mae insists on rescuing her relative herself, Chet knows he has to protect her from the enemy on their trail. Yet can he protect himself from falling for Mae again?

my review: POINT OF NO RETURN is the first book in Ms. Warren’s new series Missions of Mercy. I was looking forward to reading this book since I heard that it was coming out since I liked Ms. Warren’s previous books set in the former Soviet Union. Filled with danger, intrigue, and romance, they can’t be beat.

Mae and Chet are both strong willed characters suffering from the back-lash of bad decisions they’d made in their lives. I hoped they’d be able to find their peace, find Josh (and the Princess), and love. Once I started the book, I had to keep reading. Mae is the queen of sarcasm and her witty comebacks were funny. Plus the action and suspense were non-stop. Discussion questions are included at the back of the book.

Mission: Out of Control: Brody "Wick" Wickham is a former Green Beret turned security agent-with a 100 percent mission success rate. No way is his new assignment changing that. Even if it's protecting a diva American rock star while she's on tour in Europe . Except Veronica "Vonya" Wagner isn't just a beautiful celebrity used to having her way-she's the daughter of a U.S. Senator. And she's hiding a dangerous secret. When Wick discovers what's at stake, how far over the line will he go to keep them both alive?

My review: MISSION: OUT OF CONTROL is the second book in Ms. Warren’s Missions of Mercy series. I must say that neither Vonya nor Veronica is someone that I can relate to. But her third persona, Ronie, tugged at my heart strings and made me sit up and take notice. Brody, from the beginning, was a wonderful hero, strong, considerate, and willing to do the right thing, despite his initial opinions (shared by me) of the heroine.

Readers will be caught up in the deep point of view story, swept into the action, and sitting at the edge of their seats as they thumb through the pages of this book. Don’t pick this book up to read it unless you have the time to finish it, because the tension and suspense doesn’t let up. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book.

Undercover Pursuit: The only way to get security agent Luke Dekker to a wedding? An undercover mission as groomsman. He'll bust the groom, a drug cartel heir, before anyone can say "I do." Then Luke can escape all this love and romance nonsense-and the too pretty bridesmaid/agent assigned as his "fiancée" for the weekend. Until Luke discovers that sweet, vulnerable Scarlett Hanson isn't his contact. Isn't an agent.

Isn't trained for the high-stakes mission now trapping them both. And worse, Luke's falling for her-which is not part of the assignment.

My review: UNDERCOVER PURSUIT is the third book in Ms. Warren’s Missions of Mercy series. It easily stands alone. I think UNDERCOVER PURSUIT is the best book of the trio, it has a hero and a heroine that I could cheer for from page one, a fun plot, and a simple misunderstanding that led to a huge disaster in the making.

Scarlett is hurting, betrayed by her sister and her ex-boyfriend. Luke is struggling to remake his life after he realized he didn’t like the man that he was turning out to be. This is a combination with sparks from page one, and it didn’t let up. I loved this book from start to finish.
