This story focused heavily on humanitarian issues with Connor a doctor who first met his love volunteering in Syria. She comes from a noble family and left him to meet a family obligation to marry, but has fled from her abusive husband when they meet again. The story jumps between their past and present sharing the traumatic and dangerous conditions of the Syrian civil war and the period between their meetings. This contains difficult dark horrors of war, but also hope for a better future as Whitney and Dex's wedding is included alongside Connor finding a new purpose serving the inner city and Calla pushes for reform at home. I did feel the ending was abrupt and would have liked an epilogue to look into their future, but I am guessing some of that will be in the last brother's story.

I've enjoyed the series, but this was my least favorite. Some writing was juvenile and the back and forth of her loyalties to Connor drove me nuts.

No Other Love is the fourth book in Kathryn Shay's To Serve and Protect series. I loved this book just as much as the other ones and I'm looking forward to reading the next one. Callandra and Connor met when they worked in Syria with Doctors Without Borders, but even though their love for one another was simple their lives were not. Callandra was a princess and her life had already been mapped out by her father so her wishes didn't matter when her obligations took precedent. Connor accepted that Callandra had family and country obligations that she didn't think she could break, but coming to him for help after breaking his heart just seems cruel and opens his heart up again for love and heartache once again. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

Another wonderful story by Ms. Shay about the Marino family! In this book we learn the story of a brother who isn't in the FBI but is a Dr. and his relationship with Calla. I don't want to spoil the story for others but know that you will truly enjoy this story and love how the Marino's interact with each other and are always so supportive of each sibling. Ms. Shay's does a fantastic job with her characters and storylines, even those stories with delicate subjects. This is book 4 in the Series but can be read without reading the others. I received a complimentary copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing and recommending.

Connor and Calla met while serving in Syria with Doctors Without Borders. The two fell in love but because of an archaic law in her home country, she made the painful decision to honor her duty and return home to an arranged marriage and hopefully produce an Heir for her father. Calla's decision proved to be more painful than she ever imagined and fled to the U.S. and back to her only love Connor. Can Connor and Calla find their way back to each other before it is too late? Join Calla and Connor as they make this journey together, catch up with previous characters and meet a few new ones. I love to read Kathryn. Shay's books. She develops her characters and the storyline to keep you interested and immersed in the story. This is a wonderful story by a wonderful author. I cannot wait until the next book.

Loved this book. Once again we visit the Marino family, who's careers are to serve and protect. Connor has joined Doctors without Borders and is practicing in Syria when he meets fellow physician, Calla a real life princess. They fall in love, but Calla has an obligation to her country. She must marry whom her father picks. Connor returns home but is never the same since his time in Syria. Calla comes to the United States where there is a rediscovering of their love for each other, but will last this time. This is fast paced story that I could not put down. Loved thee flash backs from Syria! Great characters with both showing such devotion to their families. Looking forward to reading the next Marino family story.

NO OTHER LOVE. by Kathryn Shay. Book 4 "Protect and Serve" Calla was a subject of abuse, husband wanted an heir, mainly a son. Her family raised her, that her country, was first. It caused a rift between her parents, until her mother decided to help her. She gave up all, her love for Conner. Now seeking asylum in the US, but Conner, won't see her. Too great of risk, she is still married, and if children were born, the king, might lure her back. A love that shouldn't of happened, Conner feels. Choices come about, when Calla sister needs her. Then Conner feels that Calla needs him. A powerful story of commentments. To one's country, family,and even love. Readers will enjoy this in depth look, when love is not smooth sailing. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

This story is book four of Ms Shay’s series, To Serve and Protect. Stories about siblings who have dedicated their lives to serve and protect others, their country and those in need. This story is Connor’s. Connor is a physician, who spent a year in Syria as part of the Doctors Without Borders program. There he meets Calla. She too is a physician and daughter of the king of a fictitious island off the coast of Italy. She has been promised to a wealthy man in her country but since life is unpredictable, Calla and Connor fall in love. She chooses to return home to fulfill her obligations unbeknown of the consequences she will endure. She leaves her country and goes to the USA seeking asylum . Connor has been hurt but when she is in trouble he steps in to help. Though the story wasn’t my favorite, it was interesting . The con for me was that I personally don’t like flashbacks and this one is filled with them. All that said, the message of the book was deep and thought provoking. First, we are reminded of the sacrifices and dedication of the physicians who give of their time to Doctors Without Borders. My hat goes off to them and a big thank you as well. The other point the author brings up is that there are still countries today where women have no rights, are promised to men who might end up abusing them while they have no rights or protection. That reminder was mind boggling and a situation that seems inconceivable. But the reality is that it is happening today. Once again a reason to be thankful to live in a country where men and women have rights, a voice and support if needed. For that reminder, thank you , Ms Shay. I was gifted this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

No Other Love ( To Serve And Protect #4) By: Kathryn Shay No Other Love is book four in To Serve and Protect Series. Wow, What a story. I really did enjoy No Other Love, but I really felt sorry for Calla , The Princess of Casarina , and Connor. This is one book that I did not want to put down. Calla and Connor meet when both Doctors were working for Doctors Without Borders to help others. They fell for each other , but Calla’s life is not her own . Calla has to marry a man her father chooses for her. Connor hasn’t been the same since Call Left. Things don't go to good for the Princess. Is it to late for her and Connor? The ways of her world is different from his. You will meet back up with the Marion clan. The Marino’s stick together. When one is in trouble they are there to help out. I was given a complimentary copy off this book , but was not told that I had to give a positive review.
