    ANSON by Alta Hensley & Maggie Ryan


    Anson by Alta Hensley and Maggie Ryan is LIVE and #FREE with Kindle Unlimited!


    USA Today Bestselling Authors Maggie Ryan and Alta Hensley join forces again to bring you the third novel in this action-packed, romantic suspense trilogy full of bad boys and the women who love them.
    Anson Steele, along with his two brothers and father, lives by one code: Help all in need. Even if it means saving those who walk among the most sinister criminals in the world. Known as The Black Stallions, their mission is simple – provide rescue and safety to the innocents drawn into the evil depths of the underground.
    Natalia Alvarez has been sold to the leader of one of Argentinian’s largest drug cartels at an underground human auction. Being sold to the highest bidder, she is now nothing more than a possession of Juan Montez and hidden away deep within the walls of his South American compound.
    Anson Steele has been on the hunt for Natalia since the day he first saw her at the auction and helplessly had to watch her while not being able to do a thing about it. But he has made it is life’s mission to find this woman and pull her out of the depths of hell at whatever cost. She will be his save one way or another.
    With the backdrop of the mission being the unforgiving jungles and the dangerous streets of Argentina, and escaping a foreign country near impossible, is Natalia doomed to be locked away forever?
    While fighting against a powerful drug cartel and their ruthless leader, will Anson Steele be able to rescue Natalia before it is too late? Will they both be able to find refuse in The Black Stallion Ranch and put this awful nightmare behind them?

    Publisher's Note: This book contains graphic sex and BDSM elements.

    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    I've thoroughly enjoyed The Black Stallion series but I personally think that ANSON was the best of the bunch. The plot and dialogue between the characters were fluid, entertaining, and cohesive. The authors found a perfect way to balance romance with the suspenseful elements of the plot and made them believable. The characters themselves were intriguing and had me rooting for their safety and union from the get-go. Anson gave me the badass Alpha-ness I expected, but he also gave me so much more than that. He had no problem exposing his soft side, allowing himself to be vulnerable with Natalia, and showing me his great big beautiful heart. Natalia herself was no slouch and proved to be a bit different from her heroine counterparts from the other books. She was just as fierce, loyal and loving, but she was also a fighter and someone who could be a valuable asset to the Steele's organization in the field because of her training.

    I'm a bit unclear as to whether or not this would be the final book of the series. As each book was about a different brother and there were only three of them, I'm not sure who a fourth book would be about, however, there's enough of a story there to make it worthwhile. I know I'd read it if it ever came to pass ;)
