Product Description

Surviving Redemption is a full-tilt, sensual erotic thriller by USA Today bestselling author D.L. Roan

The only mission Grant Kendal has ever blown was the one that mattered most. Haunted by his violent past, his bloodlust for justice cost him his only chance to find his mentor and friend's abducted daughter. When Thalia Brezlin washes ashore his island of self-imposed exile, beaten, broken and hell-bent on revenge, Grant is tempted back into the world he left behind by more than her sharp tongue and long, sexy legs. The men she’s running from could bring him one step closer to righting his wrongs.

Plunged once again into the underworld of human trafficking, a place where evil thrives on stolen innocence and nothing escapes alive, he sees one final chance at redemption.

Author Note: Surviving Redemption is a fast-paced, heart-pounding romantic thriller about survival. Grant and Thalia's story takes you deep into the underworld of human trafficking and the monsters that live there are very real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book 26 November 2013
By kerbytejas - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Second Nature by D.L. Roan was an awesome book. It's been a long time since I've read such a great erotic suspense. The book had such a developed, well throughout plot, with twists and turns, fully fleshed out characters, an alpha male to die for, and a heroine who was strong, hard and feminine all at the same time. There was action, violence, revenge, darkness and cruelty of human trafficking, wild animals, white sandy beaches, romance and really hot sex. Oh did I forget to mention a very satisfying HEA.

This is the second book I've read from D.L. Roan, and both have been 5 star reads for me. I was so engaged and pleased with this story; the plot was strong and carried the book from the first page to the last. The chemistry between Grant and Thalia, was believable, not rushed, and developed like a smoldering fire into an inferno of want, need and desire for two people who had no room in their lives for love. Our H/h were shown as real people, sure they made mistakes, had trust issues, experienced moments of sadness, insecurity and betrayal, but that just made them more lifelike, and allowed the reader to share in their experiences and growth.

There is so much I could say about the book, but I think the reader really needs to experience it for themselves. I really hope the Ms. Roan is already writing the next book, because I'm sure looking forward to reading it. It will be fun to see if I've guessed correctly on who the H/h will be too.
5.0 out of 5 stars Roan did a fantastic job with this book! 19 March 2017

Oh my goodness! What can I cay I have read all of D.L. Roan books in the McLendon series of Falcon Ridge. That is where I first read and heard about Grant Kendal and Natalie. However it was nice to know how she was found and what part Grant played in finding Thalia Brezlin.
Natalie was Daniel Gregory daughter who went missing when she was just 17 years old. Her new name was Thalia and she washes up on the Island that Grant is living on. At Foster he has no idea it is Natalie the women he was trying to find at one point for a good friend. However when they fall in love and one of the if not both is wanted what can you do but run. Will they make it through everything and still be together or when Thalia be to mad to care when she finds out all of the truth?
This is a must read. I could not but it down a lot of action and love. There is so much you learn that you may not even know that is going on out there. I think if Roan could dial back the sex I would let my kids kids read it just so they know all of the dangers that are out there. I think with the way of this world people forget that thing like this could happen.

Roan thanks for all your hard would in writing this book it truly was very inspiring and made me do a lot of thinking with a daughter that is just starting to drive.

My Rating: Five Deliciously Sexy Stars****
Wow! Another winner from D.L. Roan! A few days ago, a friend recommended a book entitled The Heart of Falcon Ridge by D.L. Roan. I had no experience with Roan's work but after reading the blurb, free sample and several of the reviews, I decided to give it a whirl...and so glad I did! Roan is an incredibly gifted author who excels at creating fictional contemporary yet believable scenarios within intriguing interconnected worlds and populated with complex, relatable, life-like characters who literally explode from the pages, grab your attention, engage your imagination and completely capture your heart. I fell in love with Roan's natural, easy flowing style and suspense filled storylines, so, naturally, I couldn't stop with one book. I raced back to Amazon and purchased Surviving Redemption, the first release in the Survivors' Justice Series. Now, folks, I thought the first book was great but I loved, loved, loved the second. Surviving Redemption is a steamy, well crafted full-length standalone contemporary romantic thriller filled to the brim with heart-stopping danger, heartwrenching drama, spine-tingling suspense, perplexing mystery, agonizing angst, mind-blowing plot twists, heartwarming romance and dreamy sex. The narrative is well written with a multiple third person perspective, which, when done correctly, gives more insight into each character's thoughts. Constantly changing to different points of view can sometimes be exhausting for the reader, however, Roan did an exceptional job and focused primarily on the two protagonists of the story, former government assassin Grant Kendal and beautiful sex trade victim, Thalia Brezlin. The dialogue is well executed and flows smoothly. I must admit, the storyline is creative and quite unique as well as intense, steamy and romantic but without a doubt, my favorite component is the cast of intriguing characters. They are captivating, engaging, endearing and well developed. I was instantly smitten with Grant Kendal when he was first introduced as a secondary character in The Heart of Falcon Ridge. And Thalia was such a worthy heroine. I knew it would take a special woman to capture Grant's heart and Thalia was even better than I had hoped. I was immediately drawn to her character's courage, bravery, determination, and kickbutt persona. She was phenomenal and absolutely perfect for Grant. They blended brilliantly. The interaction between them was so hot it sizzled! It was electrifying! Did I like this book? No, I loved it! Roan didn't just tug at my heartstrings with this one; she literally ripped my heart right out of my chest and left me gasping for my next breath! My emotions ran the entire gambit from excited to sad to angry to disappointed to hopeful to heartbroken and finally to happy. It made me laugh! It made me cry! It made me shake my fists with indignation and outrage! It made me cringe in disbelief and horror! I was totally enthralled! And loved every single minute! I was glued to my ereader with my heart fluttering wildly in my chest, the hours passing as quickly as the pages! It was magnificent! Would I recommend it? You bet, but only for adults since it does contain some steamy,dreamy sex scenes. Will I read this author again? Absolutely! Decisions, I have to decide which of Roan's books I want to read next. lol... And finally, was I entertained? Totally! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read.

Grant Kendal aka 'The Lieutenant' has never felt love nor does he believe he ever will. Truth be told, he doesn't feel much of anything anymore, except the occasional rush of adrenaline when he successfully completes a mission, but even the high from killing one of the world's evil monsters has grown old and stale. He's seen enough evil and carnage to last a lifetime. It's time for him to retire from the game and drop off the grid. He failed his mentor, Daniel Gregory, in solving the case to find his missing daughter who was abducted and sold into the sex trade at only sixteen and that was over ten years ago. At least he was able to repay his old friend by helping Daniel protect another innocent young woman in Grasslands, Montana and free her from the same fate. It was long past time for him to disappear to the welcome solitude of his deserted tropical island, at least for a while...or heck, maybe even forever. There would never be a happy ending in his future. Grant needed very little to survive which is a good thing since his island had very few amenities to offer other than water and a pouting sullen monkey he'd named Winston as his only companion. Sex had never been something he had to have. He'd had his fair share of sex with many women but he'd never actually made love to a woman and no intentions of ever trying. He'd never even felt any real attraction or emotional attachment until a mysterious pale beauty with dark hair and eyes the color of arctic ice washed up on the shore of his island. Unfortunately, she was dead. Oops...not quite, at least not yet but apparently someone definitely wanted her dead. But why does he even care whether she lives or dies? She means nothing to him? Right? But there's something about her that seems to call to him, but what? We'll see! No spoilers from me but trust me when I say, Grant has finally met his match! Oh my! This one will keep you guessing until the very end!

As good as this story is, it only touches a part of the horror children in every country faces with the sex trafficking perpetrators in the world. This is happening in the United States right now. Thalia (Natalia) was on her way to school when she was grabbed by two men and then secretly transported out of the country. Her father tried every avenue with his government connections to find a trace of her. 10 years passed and a man named Grant Kendal had finally given up his old life and has gone off the grid on a small island. Grant was one of the people who had been trying to find Natalia for years and he never found any leads, now he is living his life as simply as he can on his island. The story continues.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good plot line, but ruined by excessive vulgarity. 19 June 2016
By Jade C. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story line is good and held my interest to the end. I like thrillers and romantic suspense, so it's right up my alley. However, there is excessive profanity which sort of ruined the book for me. There is also graphic violence, which doesn't typically bother me, but I know other people are disturbed by it. I skimmed through most of the sex scenes because they were vulgar and too explicit for my tastes. I wish that more authors would learn to get their point across without adding unnecessary crudeness and vulgarity to the story line. I'm not a prude, and when judiciously used, a swear word here and there doesn't bother me much, but when it's every other word it just detracts from the plot and ruins the book. That said, other than the crudity I really liked the book and would have rated it higher had it not been for the points I already mentioned.
