Beyond Power by Connie Mann

Florida wildlife he can handle, but he's never come up against a woman quite like her before…

If you dare venture beyond Disney's magic and Miami's high-rises, you'll find yourself in Florida's untamed wilderness…

Florida wildlife he can handle, but he's never come up against a woman quite like her before…

A bush pilot and officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Josh Tanner is one of the tough cops needed to manage the rugged areas of Florida. And the minute he finds Delilah Atwood deep in the woods without a good explanation, he knows something is very wrong…

Delilah barely escaped her ultra-fundamental militia family years ago. Now she's back to save her sixteen-year-old sister, and no government man is going to stop her. Josh isn't going to stand by and watch Delilah risk her life, but unless he can get her to a safe harbor, she may end up being the militia's next victim.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the second book in the series, and whilst it involves a new pairing, it does follow on from the previous story, so there is familiarity with the team and the environment.

I found this to be a really powerful story, with a strong engaging plot, centering around the folk who live off the grid, but also a nomadic, militia grounded life. Delilah was brought up that way but managed to escape just before she turned 16 and became the marital property of another. She is now back to save her little sister from that fate now that she too approaches that age. But her cover, and her interest, is research into one of the troupes of monkeys which live in the area. Studying for her master’s gives her good reason to be in the area and to find where her family are currently camped out.

Josh is local law enforcement, and when Delilah finds a dead body, he realises that his interest in her is not only as a suspect. But as much as she may have left her childhood life behind, her trust in law enforcement is low, and her mission to save her sister cannot be jeopardised. And so the set up for a really rich, fast-paced, exciting, and, by turns, romantic story is in place.

It is a wonderful mixture of really quite scary – really, Delilah does not have a strong self-preservation gene, or she is super confident of her senses, because I would not be walking around that wilderness alone, that is for sure – funny, and adorably romantic, in spite of the challenges that the two of them face.

Thank you, Connie Mann, for a really good read.
