CFBA: Sworn To Protect by DiAnn Mills

Song Stuck on the Brain: Hallelujah by Jason Castro.

His album is finally out and it's great. Definitely worth checking out.

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing:

Sworn To Protect
Tyndale House (April 2010)

DiAnn Mills


DiAnn Mills created some very compelling characters in this book. Danika is a woman faced with more challenges than most can bare. Her brother-in-law is in the same boat. So how do they each deal with the same tragedies? In totally different ways. DiAnn has shown how finding God again can help you deal with anything, no matter the fire you walk through.

The suspense is just as compelling. You can't stop turning the pages, you have to know who did it and why and who's involved... Between the suspense, the budding romance, the betrayal and the gift of grace - who wouldn't be captivated by Sworn to Protect?

My only complaint? I didn't realize this is book 2 in a series. I'd loved to have started at the begining first. SO, find Breach of Trust and read it too. It didn't seem like I missed anything, it's possible that the books don't overlap enough to make a difference. But I still prefer to read them in order. Call it a pet peeve. Go check out both and tell me what you think.


Border Patrol Agent Danika Morales sends illegal immigrants back to Mexico; a job she's paid dearly for. Her husband, Toby, was murdered two years ago trying to help and his murder's never been solved. Now a string of attacks and arrests leads her to believe that someone from McAllen profits from sneaking undocumented immigrants into the country and somehow this illegal activity is tied to her husband, Toby's death.

Glad you enjoyed "Sworn to Protect". Book 1 and Book 2 are stand alone novels. Different characters and different settings but under the Call of Duty series. "Breach of Trust" has the heroine working for the CIA. "Sworn to Protect" involves a heroine working for the Border Patrol. "Pursuit of Justice" - Oct, 2010 will feature the FBI.

Thanks for clearing that up DiAnn. I will definitely check out Breach of Trust and look forward to Pursuit of Justice.
