Royal Heist by Rachelle McCalla

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense Book, Royal Heist, the second book in the series Protecting the Crown. This series is by Rachelle McCalla. I loved her last series Reclaiming the Crown, so I was thrilled when she came out with another series on Lydia. You get so involved with her characters that you really want to find out what happens to them next. This book was awesome and I loved it. I sailed through it and then was upset that I didn't take more to time to saver it. It is very well written and I really enjoyed the suspense of it. Rachelle always manages to get them out of the mess they are in and save the day. I love that she is able to weave her faith throughout her stories. Imagine a whole country built on a love of God, oh yeah we had that and we let them take it all away.

Ruby Tate is a gemologist. she has come to Lydia to help Princess Stasi prepare the wedding jewels. The two girls had gone to gem school together and had spent the last four summer together. On her way back to her apartment after work she is attacked by a man in a mask right out side of the palace.

Galen Harris is a member of Royal Guards. He met Ruby several summers ago and had fallen really hard for the American but Ruby had made it clear on her last visit that she didn't want a relationship with a mere guard. So he had kept his distance since her return. Hearing her screams, he ran to her rescue. Galen's boss is not impressed that he left his post to run to Ruby's aid and threaten to terminate him. He warns him to not get emotionally involved with this girl. Princess Stasi has other plans and makes sure Galen is put in charge of Ruby's welfare.

Ruby is sure she recognizes a man in the street from their time in school and thinks he might be her attacker but Rocco is a bounty hunter in search of the Bulldog Bandits. He has followed them to Lydia as they planned to steal the crown jewels. The Bulldog Bandits have killed several guards but are so well prepared that they haven't ever set off an alarm.

Ruby believes she has betrayed her family in the past and is struggling to make amends and help their jewery business by getting the reproduction contract of the wedding jewels. She loves Galen and Lydia but she owes her family too much, she must make it up to them. Galen is the youngest of four boys, his brothers are all in the Lydia Army and have given him a hard time about being a guard. He is trying to prove to them he can be someone they can be proud of. Both characters have a lot of baggage but are able to find their way through it all.

Like I said I loved this book and know you will enjoy it. God bless you all and I will see you Wednesday.
