Two years earlier, Detective Luke McKinley had gone too far, and it had cost him his badge. He was left with nothing but a burning anger at the woman he blamed for his dismissal.

Julianne Cavanaugh had been gripped with guilt ever since, even though she'd been doing her job. Now, though, she needs Luke's help. But the tough PI would toss her out of his office if he knew the whole truth.

In spite of herself, as they work together, Julianne falls in love with the bitter former cop. But she's hiding an ugly secret, and if Luke discovers it, he'll never forgive her.

I have read a lot of series lately. There are pros and cons to reading series. Pros are that you get to connect with characters from the other books in the series in the book that you are reading. Cons are that usually the books cannot be read as a stand-alone novel. You have to read the series from the first book to get a handle on the characters and what is happening. With the Into The Storm series, you do not have that issue. You can pick up any book from the series and read it without wishing that you had read the other books. An Honorable Man starts off on a very tense note. Luke McKinley is a disgraced cop who is working as a PI. He holds a deep anger against Julia Carleton. She was the lead investigator on the IAD team and it was her suggestion that got him dismissed from the force. So when she shows up at his office and asks for his help, he almost turns her down. But something about the case that she was working on calls to him. It is only after an attempt on his life that he agrees to help her. What Luke wasn’t expecting was to fall in love with Julia. Julia has a big secret that will threaten her and Luke’s fledgling relationship. A secret that will try Luke’s trust to the core. It will also make him question everything that he thought he knew about Julia. Luke came across as a jerk towards Julia in the beginning of the book. But, once it was revealed that she was the lead investigator on the case against him, I understood. But, regardless of his feelings for Julia, he still helped her. In doing that, he began to see her as a human being and someone who he came to care for. I wouldn’t classify it as love until they were in the warehouse. But even then, he was blindsided by her secret. I felt bad for Julia. She had a lot of guilt over her role in Luke’s investigation. She was also very wary of approaching him for help because she knew how he felt about her. I do have to give her credit, she was a tough one. I do think that she should have been more upfront with her secret with Luke. That way he wouldn’t have been blindsided by it at the end. The sex scenes in An Honorable Man were not graphic. I like graphic sex scenes very much but sometimes understated is the way to go. And that is how it was with Luke and Julia’s sex scenes. I also liked the romance. It was fast but it seemed right between them. I loved the ending of An Honorable Man. Julia’s case got solved. I did feel bad that her secret was revealed the way it was but she should have told Luke sooner. All the storylines were wrapped up in a way that satisfies me as a reader. An Honorable Man was a great read. The plot was fast-moving and the characters were fleshed out. I enjoyed reading it very much!! **I received a free copy of this book and volunteered to review it**

Goodness Shines... I am really enjoying this series! An Honorable Man brings Luke McKinley's story to life! Can this former cop work with the woman that helped fire him? This book has a wonderful balance of suspense and romance! A well written tale that draws you in and won't let go until the last word! :) I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

Men in battle begin this story but years later the story is picked up to let the reader know what has happened to each of the men introduced in the first chapter. This book is the story of Luke McKinley, a man fired from his job as a policeman. He is working as a P.I. when the woman he blames for his job loss arrives to offer him a job helping her expose corrupt policemen. He is torn between wanting to help and wanting to prove his old partner is not dirty. As the two get to know one another sparks fly, truths are shared and fears are dealt with and a HEA is achieved for Luke an Internal Affairs officer, Julianne Cavanaugh. Enjoyable read and fun to catch up with another of the heroes from the Into the Storm series. Thank you to the author for the book – this is my honest review.
