Their love blossomed in the aftermath of an earthquake but months later, a new enemy threatens. Kaylan Richards is adjusting to a new state with a new internship, new group of friends, and a new roommate intent on trying her patience. But it's perfect. She's with Nick and discovering a new normal, except for the constant worry that he may not come home.

An enemy lurks in the shadows.

Navy SEAL Nick Carmichael is on a mission to catch an elusive arms dealer, the most wanted supplier for terrorists all over the world, but his team is being targeted. The enemy is closer than he thinks, and Kaylan's life is at risk.

When the fight comes to their door, what will they sacrifice to save each other?

Kariss does it again in her 2nd book.  This one, even more than the last I was hooked until I could finish.  Finding time late at night for "just one more chapter", it becomes a page turner quickly.  In this addition to the series, Kariss more intimately explores the emotions of a deepening romance, and accurately and effectively describes the trust and challenges that come as Nick and Kaylan's love grows.  I found myself surprised at how easy it was to relate to the characters and to feel what they were feeling in the process. While the romance story is excellently crafted, there's also a page turning thriller to be had when Nick's job seeps into his personal life.  The scenes came off the pages as Lynch described secret ops, fights, and suspenseful interactions. The plot is exciting and keeps you going, while the romance is creatively developed such that you're drawn in to the character's story.  This will be a book you find yourself reading through quickly- anxious to see what happens next!  Highly recommended for those looking for an entertaining read that won't turn their brain to mush.  Highly recommended for women, and a great gift for teen girls who are being told to find their worth elsewhere.  Kariss builds characters that struggle WELL with identity, worth, and insecurity in the midst of dating.

I absolutely loved this book!!  Once I started reading I couldn't stop.  It had the perfect mix of suspense and romance.  I loved watching Kayland and Nick's relationship mature but most of all I loved watching them mature with the Lord.  And learning how to depend on the Lord even when things seemed impossible!  Excellent read!!!

Shadowed, the second book in the Heart of a Warrior series, continues the story of Kaylan Richards and Nick Carmichael. Kaylan has since moved to California to be closer to Nick, her Navy SEAL boyfriend. The story leaps right into action, with Nick and his SEAL team chasing Janus, one of the most wanted arms-dealers in the world. Janus keeps evading the SEAL team, and the guys want nothing more  than to bring her to justice. Meanwhile, Kaylan continues to struggle with the emotional and spiritual aftermath of the Haitian earthquake. As Kaylan and Nick’s relationship grows, they must learn to work together and compromise as they each deal with baggage from the past. Is loving Nick worth the risk of possibly losing him? Will Kaylan and Nick trust God with the future of their relationship? Will the SEAL team finally catch Janus? Shadowed showcases an awesome, Christ-centered romance. One of the things I really admire about Ms. Lynch’s writing is her ability to convey deep emotions. While reading, I was almost in tears a few times because I could actually feel the emotions jumping off the pages. The relationships in this story, both friendship and romantic, are so beautifully layered and realistically portrayed. Kaylan and Nick are strong in their faith, but they still have their share of struggles.  Kaylan especially has a difficult time dealing with the danger involved with Nick’s job. I love Megan, Kaylan’s roommate, and their friendship added a great element to the story. I also love Kaylan’s family members, especially her brother Micah. Micah is Nick’s best friend, and that’s how the family first met Nick. I think that connection really works well for the story. Also, I really enjoyed the camaraderie of the members of the SEAL team. Ms. Lynch did a great job at showcasing each of their different personalities, while still showing how they worked together, supported each other, and were like brothers. Here are a couple of quotes that really spoke to my heart, so I have to share:   She (Kaylan) just needed to discover the beauty that came after a person experienced brokenness.    More then ever, she (Kaylan) understood that despite outward appearances, one could never really know or understand the broken stories or the beauty that lay hidden in some people’s hearts.   I would highly recommend this series! Since Shadowed is the second book in the series, definitely read the first book, Surrendered, before diving into this one. Read them both, and then wait with anticipation for the third one!  I received a copy of this book for my honest and unbiased opinion.

Leave it to Lynch to bring another great story of romance and suspense! After getting to know Nick and Kaylan in Shaken, I enjoyed catching up not only on the changes in their circumstances, but on the depth of character expressed through these new trials. Though each handles the stress in his own way, both find a way to trust in the Lord with their lives and their relationships. I can't wait to see what's next for these two!

Shadowed is the second book following Shaken in the Heart of a Warrior Series.  I grew to fall in love with the characters in Shaken and was so excited to see them return in Shadowed!  There was a bit more suspense and a twist in who was Shadowing both Nick and Kaylan.  I was filled with emotion full of smiles and tears.  I could hardly put the book down from page one! What I truly loved about this series is that among all the "romance" novels it is so nice to read a story of love- not just romance.  I loved being able to read a clean Christ-centered fiction romance novel without all the garbage that you usually find.  It is extremely refreshing and I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out!  If you love a good romance story and want to retreat into a Christ-centered world of love this is definitely the series for you!

From page one, Shadowed had me absolutely captured. I loved reading about Kaylan and Nick in Shaken, and in Shadowed was even better, with more mystery and intrigue that keeps you guessing. As the reader, we watch Kaylan continuing to heal from the loss of her best friend and the emotional trauma from Haiti's earthquake, and when faced with fearful circumstances, she handles them with grace, sacrifice, and guts. Nick, I am convinced, is the epitome of what every girl wants in a man. He is brave and selfless, kind and strong, and most importantly he follows Christ with all he has. I loved watching their relationship continue to grow and strengthen, as well as their playful banter.Shadowed has me enchanted with Alabama sunrises and California sunsets, and Lynch accurately portrays the SEAL's and their fierce love of their country and their people. I would recommend this book to everyone, and look forward to the next books in the Heart of a Warrior series, as well as anything else that Lynch writes.

I absolutely loved this book. Bought it yesterday and have already finished it today. I have fallen even more in love with the main characters of the story. Nick and Kaylan are a couple that everyone will root for. And I love the storyline with Kaylan's roommate. I can't wait for the next one! Each story has such a beautiful message about God's love and how we can find strength in Him. Would recommend this book to everyone.

Kariss Lynch has written another masterpiece! Shadowed is OUTSTANDING! Looking forward to Surrendered! I never want this series to end! Nick and Kaylan are amazing, personable characters, they're alive in my mind, I have laughed aloud,struggled, and cried along with them. The Lord speaks through Kariss, straight to our hearts, our minds! Keep on writing Kariss, the Lord has given you a beautiful, powerful gift! God Bless YOU! AJSnyder

I started Shadowed on a flight and found myself unable to put it down as I got off the plane. It was like reconnecting with old friends as I got back into the story of Kaylan, Nick, and the rest of the group. The characters are very relatable and it is neat to see how each of them grows in this book.  I cannot wait for book 3 to come out!

Shadowed drops us right into the action, being the second book in the Heart of a Warrior series, and just keeps running! It was the perfect blend of action, romance, reality, and faith! And quite honestly it was just a dang good read! I loved knowing that there was only pure and good content ahead of me because it allowed me to fly through the book freely, enjoying every single page turn, without fear of finding something I would blush at!!! I must say that my favorite thing about Lynch's writing is the perspective of SEAL's through the lens of faith. Gosh, she nailed it with the title " Heart of a Warrior" because that is truly the most touching thing about this book!!! There was a rawness to the characters battle for faith that I connected with so so deeply. I have read all of those best seller SEAL books lately and they are consumed with pure action and deep emotions but none of them have touched on the men's faith in such a stirring way as this book did! Shadowed takes the men fighting for our freedom and allows us to experience their battles in the field, at home, AND in the heart! I can't wait for the next one!
