She’s the light from his past.

He’s the one her heart has always longed for. 

Trained by the best, Christopher Walker has fought hard for his country and even harder to forget the only girl he’s ever loved. He spent countless nights submerged in death and destruction only to find himself clinging to the memories of her when the darkness crept in. 

When her life is threatened, Christopher will stop at nothing to protect her. Even if it means having to confront his past.

Alissa Malone never thought she would find herself face-to-face again with the only boy she’s ever loved. But she soon realizes Christopher is not the same man he once was. 

His touch is still electrifying—his voice still earth shattering. But there’s a darkness about him that wasn’t there before. A pain he harbors so deep that she can feel it all the way to her soul. 

One fateful moment destroyed his very existence, and only one person will be able to make him realize that what he considers an act of dishonor was truly an act of courage.


This is Book Four in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It is not necessary to read all of the other books in the series. However, I do highly recommend that you at least read Resisting Temptation, the third book in the Men of Honor series, since this is where these Characters story began.


5 huge stars for the fourth book in the Acts Of Honor series by the wildly talented KC Lynn. This book is all about Christopher Walker and his lady love - Alissa Malone. We have met both these characters in a previous book - Resisting Temptation - so while technically it can be read as a stand-alone, the author highly recommends that book be read prior to enjoying An Act of Courage and I completely agree. My emotions were all over the place while reading this one and I highly suggest you have a box of tissue on hand to help you through.
Alissa Malone's heart was broken five years ago when Christopher walked away, but she moved on as best she could while attending college in Baltimore. Alissa recently graduated with her nursing degree and decides she now wants to go to medical school. She partakes in a humanitarian trip to Kenya in the hopes of helping refugees before school starts, but things go horribly wrong. While working at one of the clinics Alissa is abducted by evil men who are holding her hostage until her wealthy parents pay a hefty ransom.
Christopher Walker is recently back home in Sunset Bay having been honorably discharged from the Navy. The man that came home is not the same person that everyone knows and loves, but he can't seem to talk about what happened. Christopher is doing what he can to survive all while fighting the demons in his head when he gets the news that brings him to his knees. The only girl he has ever loved was taken and is being ransomed for an extremely large amount of money on the other side of the globe. He will do whatever it takes to get her back.
This book was beautifully written from start to finish. I never know how I will feel reading about a character that I once knew as a child, but Christopher was so well written he both owned my heart and made me swoon. Then getting to see a few of the other MOH families just added to all of the charm. Do yourself a favor an read Christopher & Alissa's story today :)


4.5 stars for the third book in the Men of Honor series that features the quiet, mysterious soldier Cade Walker. This book can be read as a stand alone, but the series is one I highly recommend. This book deals with sensitive topics that include religion and discretion is advised.
Faith Williams is on a mission trip with her church when her life is changed forever. Now two years later she is still dealing with the aftermath of what happened in Iraq, but takes it one day at a time until she literally runs into the man who stole her heart. Faith knows Cade wants nothing to do with her romantically, but she still feels that she needs to thank him, Jaxson and Sawyer for rescuing her.
Cade Walker is not living a full life. He is instead just existing until he runs into the red hair angel that brought light & laughter to all of his dark & broody. Faith makes everything better in all ways and brings joy to his otherwise dreary world. Obstacles will have to be climbed & compromise will have to be made for this epic HEA.
The Men of Honor series is one of my favorite as they are swoon-worthy alphas who have flaws. The Men love their women fiercely and unapologetically regardless of what people think. Can't wait for more from Author KC Lynn :)


One minute I’m drumming to a beat I could never play on my own then the next I’m flipped around to face him, his fingers digging into my hips possessively. I gasp, my breath racing as I stare back at him.

Something passes between us.

A decision.

A choice.

No more fighting this.

“Fuck complicated.” His earlier words fall past his lips then our mouths become one.

The connection slams into me, sending my heart reeling. Our tongues duel in a beautiful battle, the sound of our passion filling the air as our past ignites.

A growl erupts from him, vibrating against my lips. “You taste as good as I remember.”

I want to tell him the same thing but can’t. All I can think about is his mouth never leaving mine, not even for a second, or it might kill me.

At this moment, I’m not even sure how I survived so long without it—without him.

He slides the stool closer to the drum set before his hand moves between us and presses on my chest. I seize the opportunity to suck in air and let him guide me to my back, my shoulders resting against the musical cylinders.

His hands move to mine and it’s then I realize I still have the drumsticks gripped tightly in my fists. With a sexy smirk, he pries them both from me, throwing one on the floor but keeps hold of the other.

His dark eyes never sever from mine as he unbuttons the shirt I’m wearing, exposing me to his stare. The cool air whispers over my heated flesh, my nipples straining for his touch.

                “So fucking pretty.” The wild lust in his eyes triggers an intense desire in me.

                 I bite my lip to keep from moaning but all silent caution is thrown out the window the moment he takes the stick and brushes the tip of it over one aching bud.

                Another gasp parts my lips, a fiery whimper purging from me at the cool, hard feel. My back arches, the small touch igniting an inferno in my body.

                “Remember the things I used to do to your body, Alissa? How wet you would get when you’d hear me sing?” he murmurs, dragging the smooth wood down my tummy. “You’d beg me to take your ache away. Remember?”

                “Yes. Do you?” I ask. I’m dying to know. Has he thought of me as much as I have him?

                “Yeah, baby. There isn’t a moment of our time together that I’ve ever forgotten.”

                His admission has my throat burning and heart aching. Aching at the loss of him, of what we could have had.

                What we did have.

                “The good,” he whispers. “The bad.” He slips the stick in my panties. “And the fucking beautiful.”

                “Oh, god, Christopher.” His name spills past my lips on a cry of pleasure as he glides the stick through my wet flesh, slowly working it against my swollen clit.

                He plays my body like he plays every instrument. With skilled perfection and grace. Keeping his momentum, he leans down just enough to suck a hard nipple into his mouth. His teeth graze it with a pressure that borders on a beautiful pain and it’s enough to send me over the edge.

                Blissful cries rip from my throat as I’m swept up into an intense storm of pleasure.

                “Good girl, scream for me, Alissa. Let me have your pleasure because next it’s going to be my cock working this hot little pussy.”
