The Men of Haven: fierce passion, unyielding loyalty.

Trevor Raines lives on the edge of legal. A good guy doing bad things to save lives, the only rules he follows are the Brotherhood’s, and there’s nothing in the world that will change that. Until Natalie Jordan walks into his life…

Natalie’s only interest is in making a fresh start. She’s a woman with a plan, and the plan doesn’t include a man with secrets, no matter how kind—or intoxicating—he is. But this cowboy is determined to break down her walls, keep her safe and make her his.

Trevor had no interest in settling down, but there’s something entirely too appealing about this woman he can’t stay away from. There’s only one thing to do—change his plans…and hers. When Natalie’s ex resurfaces to threaten her new life, Trevor will move heaven and earth to make sure the bastard can’t hurt her again. Except saving Natalie means outing his own secrets—and it could mean losing her forever…

Natalie Jordan and Trevor Raines aren't looking for love, but it certainly finds them in " Claim and Protect," the highly anticipated third book in the Haven Brotherhood Series by Rhenna Morgan. Trevor, a sexy cowboy, bar owner, pilot meets Natalie, a beautiful, hard working single mom. Who needs each other more? Natalie finds it hard to trust anyone especially after her ex-husband Wyatt abused both her and her son. One night after work Wyatt was harassing her yet again, and Trevor came to her rescue, pretending to be her boyfriend. Trevor feels compelled to help others who are suffering and when it comes to Natalie, Trevor wants "to step in and protect her, no matter what the cost." Natalie and Trevor begin spending time together and after a magical day horseback riding at Trevor's ranch, Natalie knew she was falling in love. Could the same be said for Trevor? When Trevor finds out that Wyatt is involved in illegal activities, he asks his brothers for help in taking him down. Only then, would Natalie be free. I loved "Claim and Protect" and I couldn't put it down. Rhenna continues the story of the Haven Brotherhood and the women who are important to them with yet another captivating installment. Natalie and Trevor's journey is romantic, passionate and full of hope!! I am looking forward to the next book in the series, "Tempted and Taken."

WOW! I wish I could give this MUST READ, “Claim & Protect” 6 STARS! Seriously! I am so blown away by Rhenna Morgan’s new world, the Haven Brotherhood! ... Whether you’ve read the 1st two stand-alone page-turners or not, get ready to be swept away by this phenomenal novel that grabbed me from the start & held on tight even after the ending! ... I was so glued to my seat that I did not want to stop whenever real life got in the way :o lol ... It just boggles my mind how this talented author does it, but each new novel is just as fantastic as her previous 5 star must read, only with a dollop of awesome-sauce added! ... Contemporary romantic suspense with a unique edge that is believable, while enjoying an escape from the doldrums of a real world! ... Ms. Morgan has a magical way with words that always provides unique plots, amazing descriptions and attention to detail, with witty dialogue and strong characters that are so enjoyable & relatable! ... Plus, some smoking hot & sexy scenes that dreams are made of, while she taps into an array of emotions that will engage the reader! ... I don’t know how many times I either laughed out loud, or had tears streaming down my face! ... And that is how all contemporary fiction should be, so I nominate this novel (the whole series, actually) to become a best-selling novel everywhere! ... Even tho I always volunteer to read this author’s books, these are my honest feelings without any outside influences. But if I didn’t have the honor, I would pay top dollar for any book by Ms. Morgan if I had to, that is how strongly I recommend this novel and series & can’t wait for the next book!

OMG, not kidding this 3rd book rocked it for me. On my 2nd marriage that includes 4 kids, 2 from each of us. My husband took my kids as his own, as I did with his, then we added two of our own. So yes, we have a 6 pack. 20 years later and we are blessed with 6 wonderful kids. 4 adult kids & 2 still in high school. This book was everything to me. Passion, love, & dedication. Not sure you could impress me more, but I'm sure gonna read more. Love this series and the Haven Men..

The Haven Brotherhood is a group of unconventional alpha males that have become family. These men are possessive, hot, and successful. This series has fast become a favorite to read and look forward too. Oh my! Trevor is the perfect sexy dirty southern gentleman. Protective, gentle, rough, hot, and a sexy cowboy. Claim & Protect is skillfully done. It’s full of heartache, friendship, suspense, action, drama, and romance. Trevor is the perfect gentleman. He’s hot and dirty in and out of bed. Natalie is a single newly divorced mom and her ex is causing problems. Natalie’s boy, oh my, how Trevor interacts with him was terrific. The story was sensational. The characters are outstanding, fun, and you will just fall in love with each and everyone. I had a phenomenal time getting to know Trevor and the women who captured his heart. I can’t wait for the next installment. Rated: 4 Stars

Love the Men of Haven. Loved Trevor.
HeidiSenesac More than 1 year ago
As a fan of the first two books in the series, I had to keep reading. I was thrilled that this next book featured Trevor's journey to love. And not just love of a woman, but love of a her child. That aspect just enriched the the story. And although I was a little jealous of Natalie, I loved how she and Trevor found each other. Both of them had backstories and wounds that might have kept them from loving each other, but I'm happy to report that they got over it in their journey. Trevor is protective and alpha, but has this soft, gooey, sexy side that made me want to cheer. They truly are the perfect couple. Morgan does an amazing job weaving a story. It gripped me from the beginning and held on tight for the entire wild, sexy and intriguing ride. I'm looking forward to continuing with the rest of the series. Write faster, Rhenna Morgan!!

5 stars! An auto-buy author for me! I always enjoy the heck out of a Haven Brotherhood book, and Claim & Protect is no different! Natalie’s ex is causing trouble. He’s harassing her and her son, and Natalie’s at the end of her rope. The last thing she expects to see is Trevor Raines, her hottie boss, coming to her rescue. And claiming he’s her boyfriend? Natalie can’t seem to resist the gentle giant and things heat up. Unfortunately, her ex isn’t giving in. This was everything I’ve come to expect from Rhenna Morgan. There’s the camaraderie between the brothers, romance that will make you tear up and sigh, and action that keeps you biting your nails. Natalie is such a sweetheart, but she’s being harassed by an a-hole ex. Despite her troubles, however, Natalie refuses to give in or give up. She has a son, Levi, and her mama bear instincts are up and running. I so admired her. Trevor’s had a rough past as well, and it lines up with what Natalie’s been going through with her ex. Even though he’s dead-set against a long-term relationship, Trevor’s more than willing to temporarily step up for Natalie to get her ex off her case. And bonus? While Trevor may be all “yes, ma’am,” he’s also not afraid to get good and dirty when his chemistry with Natalie shakes things up. Be still my heart! Of course there are secrets and plots and suspense galore. In my opinion, Trevor Raines takes the cake for the nicest, most down-home hero for me. His interactions with Natalie’s son, especially…I dare you not to get as mushy-eyed as I did! We need more romances where good men meet good women. Honestly, when all’s said and done, Ms. Morgan could write about the Brotherhood sitting around and yawning, and I’d eat it up. Claim & Protect is another winner in this delightful, sigh-inducing series. Just sit back and enjoy.

3.5 STARS Trevor is a fair employer. He has a small number of rules at his bar he expects his staff to follow. One of them is a no-cellphone rule during work. Unfortunately his newest addition doesn't seem to have gotten the memo - she uses her phone while working her shift at The Den. Before canning her he needs to find out what it is that has her risking her job. Natalie's ex-husband is terrorizing her family which consists of her son and her mother watching him. When her boss finds her on the phone while she is trying to calm down her mom she has no choice but to tell Trevor about the troubles Nat is in. Trevor being the amazing guy that he is sends her home to take care of her family. Unbeknownst to her he follows her and gets there in time witnessing the jerk ex threatening Natalie. Trevor has a history with domestic violence. His mother died from being beat to death by her dad so it takes everything in him to reign in his volatile temperament. He poses as Nat's boyfriend and accomplishes that the ex leaves for the night. But he will be back, Trevor is sure of it, so a long-term plan needs to be set in motion... Trevor was a super possessive guy with a troubled past. It's a known and successful formula by Rhenna Morgan. I love this kind of hero but would have liked to get a different feel about him than I had with Jace and Zeke. If you compare them they are all very similar and I wanted to see a bit of a different personality. Nevertheless, Trevor was a likable, sensual typically charming southern guy with a dirty mouth and impeccable manners. Natalie was a tad too bland for my taste. While she put up a fight when her ex bullied her she just was a bit too tame. And I definitely wasn't a fan of how she treated Trevor in the end. She was determined to give her son a better life and to overcome the repercussion of her bad choices in the past. I did love the way she and Trevor were with Levi. I just couldn't muster the enthusiasm I had for Vivienne. I found to be the first 70% of this story to be much slower than the first two books in this series. The plot didn't take off the way the others did for me. It was lacking the drive I'm used to. The last 30% were perfect in terms of pace and we got the suspense and action I love when it comes to this author. I really loved that part of the book. As always the dynamics of the brothers are my favorite thing in this series. Their easy banter, the loyalty, their obvious love for one another and how they have each other's back. While this installment might not have been my favorite in this series it was still a solid book. Also, as always, please take my review with a grain of salt. It IS highly subjective and you might totally fall in love with Trevor and Natalie. I am definitely going to read Knox' story - I love a nerdy hero and can't wait to see what Rhenna Morgan comes up with for him. Claim & Protect is part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

Claim & Protect by Rhenna Morgan Haven Brotherhood #3 Love, love, LOVE this series! The men are all different but oh so alpha, lusty and fascinating… YUM! In this book we get to know Trevor Raines. Trevor comes from a rather rough background but eventually found his way through the foster system to a set that wanted to adopt him. Even in adulthood he had some rough times but then…things happened that led to his becoming part of the Haven Brotherhood. He owns a commercial airline business and flies planes, has a pub, has a ranch and is gorgeous. He has recently hired Natalie and as the book begins he needs to talk to her about an issue, realizes something is up and steps in to help out. With her his employee and her not wanting to compromise her job they are going for “friends” (perhaps with benefits) but with her young son, her mother, her abusive husband and both his and Natalie’s inability to trust themselves to make wise decisions about relationships there are some hoops to be jumped through before a HEA can be found. Levi, Natalie’s son, is a sweetie and stealer of scenes. Wanted to scoop him up and hug him…and would have LOVED to hug or perhaps have a dance with Trevor ;) Again, GREAT series with wonderful characters. I thoroughly recommend it and am eager to read what comes next. I do believe the next story will be about Knox, computer savvy and no doubt another incredible man with an equally intriguing story to read and his partner to meet. Thank you to NetGalley and Carina Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

Fantastic book! I am loving this Haven Brotherhood series and it seems that each book is better than the last. Each book is about a different member of the brotherhood and can easily be read standalone. The brotherhood is a band of men who live their lives on their terms. Skirting the law when necessary to do what's right and just. This is Trevor's story and I absolutely fell in love with him. Trevor is never more at peace than he is when he's flying one of his planes. He would much rather be there than sitting in his bar having his new waitress drive him crazy. First she's temptation in a sexy little body which is bad enough but the way she keeps eyeing her phone even though she knows it's against the rules tell him something isn't right. When he finds out Natalie is dealing with an abusive ex he knows he can't simply walk away but can he handle the trouble that is sure to come?? I highly recommend this one for everyone's must read list.

***5 ‘Not All Knights Wear Armour, Some Wear Cowboy Boots’ Stars*** I swear I’m a pile of gooey goodness right now. This book had so much heart and panty melting going on that even if I went skinny dipping in arctic temp waters I’d still be melting. Then when you add in the rest of the Haven men, the women who keep them in check, an adorable seven year and a crazy asshat, you find that you have a book that gives you all the feels and more. Trevor..mmm. This man is everything. There really is no other way to say it. He’s all kinds of protective smexy alpha male with a silver tongue that he knows how to use in more ways than one and a sense of honor a country mile wide. He has his demons, and even he’ll admit to crossing over into gray areas every so often, but sometimes what’s right isn’t always black and white. Natalie. Talk about a strong woman. She may not have made the best choice at one time in her life, but she’s learned from it. Her determination to make her future better and brighter not only for herself, but her son. The woman has moxie and it shows as she takes on everything life throws at her. Trevor and Natalie’s journey to their HEA was so much fun. I swear my cheeks are hurting from all the dopey smiling I was doing because of these two. They both tried to keep from crossing lines, but failed miserably every time and how could they not? The chemistry between them was blazing hot in every way possible. They just fit. And I can’t leave Levi, Natalie’s son, out of this equation because he played a huge part in these two falling down the rabbit hole and it seriously brought out all the feels. The crazy asshat does come in and makes things more complicated, but in the end I love how that was all dealt with. From the first page I was hooked and loved every second of it! Not only did I love Trevor, Natalie and Levi’s journey, but I loved hanging out with the Men, and women, of Haven as well a few new friends we got to meet. I’m a sucker for the whole band of brothers/family vibes thing and when done right it makes my reading experience exponentially better and Ms. Morgan definitely does it right! I love the mom’s, Frank was amazing and I love seeing how happy Viv and Gabe are with Jace and Zeke. I’m still holding on to my claim on Axel and Knox but I’m not gonna lie and say that Beckett and Danny are right up there with them, along with Ivan. Now to wait for my BBF Knox’s book with as much patience as I can possibly muster up! ~ Copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley & voluntarily reviewed ~

Claim & Protect by Rhenna Morgan is the 3rd book in her wonderful Men of Haven series. I love this series, and Rhenna Morgan just keeps on giving us another sensational story focusing on the hot hunky Men of Haven. The women who tames their hearts are tough, independent and pretty cool themselves. Each book has had great couples, and there is so much more to come. In Claim & Protect, Trevor Raines is our hero, and he wins our heart almost immediately. Trevor owns a bar in Dallas, and has a large ranch he calls home. One night at the bar, Trevor is hanging around his ‘brothers’, when he notices one of his new hires is breaking a ‘no phone’ rule during working hours. Natalie Jordan, our heroine, needs her job, but she has some issues at home. When Trevor approaches her about using the phone, she tells him that her mother is taking care of her 7 year old son, and her ex was giving her a hard time. Trevor tells her to go home to be with her son, and he will make exceptions to his rule. However, sensing something more, Trevor decides to check on Natalie at her home, and comes upon the abusive ex forcing his way into their house. Trevor manages to arrive just in time and introduces himself as Natalie’s new boyfriend, which temporarily will make the ex leave. Trevor convinces Natalie to go along with the ruse to keep her ex at bay, and despite both of them not wanting any relationship, things will slowly change. Natalie finds herself very attracted to Trevor, but feels she is not his type. Her son, Levi, immediately loves being around the cool, smart, savvy Trevor, to the point of hero worship and learning about horses on his ranch. Trevor, having watched Jace and Zeke (in previous books) fall in love, doesn’t plan on falling in love. However, emotions are hard to control; especially with a woman & a boy, who begin to call to his heart The romance between Natalie and Trevor becomes hot and steamy, which Morgan does very well. Though there were a lot of sex scenes, it did not take away from the story, which was wonderful. What follows is Trevor doing all he can to stop Natalie’s ex, and getting his “brothers’ to help. Natalie does not want to lose custody of Levi, which her well connected ex threatens to do. But the men of the Haven Brotherhood are more powerful, and together they will stop the ex from trying to frame Trevor in illegal drugs, and turn the table against him. This was an exciting, and emotional storyline, especially revolving around Natalie and Levi. The sexual chemistry between Trevor and Natalie was off the wall sizzling, and I loved them together. Another sensational couple that Morgan has created, and it was sweet, sexy and beautiful to watch them realize that they were falling in love. What makes this series great, are the wonderful characters that make up the Men of Haven , and the woman who become part of it. Levi was a great addition to the story, and elevated the emotional heartwarming element. Claim & Protect continues the trend of fantastic stories among the men of the Men of Haven. Rhenna Morgan continues to rise up in becoming an author I cannot wait to read. You need to be reading this series.

Claim and Protect is book three in the Haven Brotherhood series by Rhenna Morgan. It’s a well known fact that I have a gigantic love for any book involving a sexy cowboy, the sexier the better. And, if they call their woman “darlin’ then I’m completely lost. In this book, you will meet Trevor Raines. He owns a ranch and has punched every one of my cowboy buttons. But at the same time, he is a pub owner, a brother, and every bit dominant alpha male that you can handle. Hands off ladies, he’s mine! Trevor owns The Den, a bar in Dallas’s Deep Ellum district. Trevor has a past, one he’s not proud of, but when the brother’s found him, he grew up and made himself into a man he could be proud of. The place Trevor calls home is his ranch. He has people to run it for him when he can’t be there but it’s the place that he most loves to be, with his horses and his border collie. Trevor has strict rules for the employees at his bar, one of which is no cell phones while working. So, when he sees his new hire keep sneaking in texts, he knows he needs to deal with it. He hasn’t had her on long and he feels an odd protectiveness towards her. When he learns of the reason she is on her phone, he decides to follow her home to make sure she got home safely. The next move he made is what changed everything. Natalie Jordan had never been a cocktail waitress before but her new boss took a chance on her and she is determined not to let him down. But on this night, she has to deal with this situation. Natalie’s ex-husband has made it his life’s work to make her existence intolerable. And he’s doing a fine job of it, especially on this night. Natalie has a seven year old son at home, Levi, with her mother and Natalie is their sole supporter. Unfortunately, Levi is caught in the middle between his parents. Natalie’s ex is using him as a pawn to get what he wants, and what he wants isn’t Levi at all, but Natalie. Natalie has been smitten with Trevor from day one but was determined to remain professional. She needed this job too much. But when Trevor decided to help her out with her situation, their relationship quickly changed. It didn’t take long for the chemistry to get the best of them. “He’d been wrong. Natalie Jordan wasn’t born for sex. She was born for him.” Natalie is determined to stay on track with her plan for her future and that future doesn’t include a new relationship. And Trevor doesn’t feel like he could ever be good enough for someone like Natalie. They both are in complete denial of their feelings. Let me tell you about little seven year old Levi. I fell in love with this boy. He has been through so much, seen so much. And the way he has to endure his father broke my heart. But this little boy was strong and resilient. He has a heart as big as Texas. And he has some huge hero worship for Trevor. Trevor wasn’t only falling for Natalie but for Levi as well. He never thought of himself as father material. But that little boy had worked himself into Trevor’s heart and soul and there wasn’t a thing he could do about it. Trevor and Natalie’s chemistry was off the charts hot. What started out as being ’light and easy’ quickly escalated into more. But as their relationship progressed, so did the efforts of her ex-husband. If I have ever hated a character, it would be him. This man was awful. Trevor with the help of his brothers, vows to find a way to get him out of Natalie’s life so she can finally be f
