I have to admit, I am really in love with the fighter books lately and couldn't pass up a chance to read Stand of Redemption even though Cathryn Williams is a new-to-me author. I'm really glad I gave it a chance because it was an emotional story that isn't cookie cutter and stands out from others in the same genre.
Nicholas and Ria are almost like ships passing the night for awhile. We learn about them after a brief encounter where emotions toward each other aren't necessarily positive. Both characters are strong, but they do what they have to to protect those they love. There is a lot of drama and emotion packed into this story that just give us characters we can love and hate all rolled into one.
