An action packed love story. A great plot full of intrigue, romance, suspense, and danger. The characters are well developed. Ronin is a strong, sexy, alpha Navy Seal, Isabella is a courageous, capable, loving woman determined to fight others. They are perfect together and have amazing chemistry. This is fast paced and will keep you turning the pages until the very end. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in this series.

Ronin's Return is the third book in Elle James' Hearts & Heroes series and definitely worth reading. I'm looking forward to reading more books in this series. Navy SEAL, Ronin Magnus returns to Italy two years after having spent a weekend with a woman that he can't seem to forget. He's hoping that he can find her that their chemistry is just as he remembered. Isabella Pisano has spent the last two years trying to forget Ronin. Trying to be more than just a multimillionaire's daughter she takes it upon herself to help women who are being raped, tortured and sold into slavery by ISIS, but in doing so she has drawn attention to herself and now finds her life in danger. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

I was provided this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. This book is about a Navy SEAL Ronin Magnus who finally takes a vacation in Italy and meets a lady names Isabella. They enjoy two weeks of being together. She never provides any information about herself so the only name Ronin has is Isabella. He goes back to active duty, its two years later and he is determined to find Isabelle so that he can move on and get her out of his system. The story continues, as he was able to find her but their reunion has been interesting. He finds out that Isabella is Isabella Pisano; daughter of the multi-millionaire Pisano family of Venice. She has also been busy over the last two year, she had set out to make a difference in the lives of the women being raped, tortured and sold into slavery by ISIS in Syria. Where she became known as the Angel of Mercy. When ISIS puts a price on her head, she returns to Venice, and her father’s protected home . She hopes her alter ego and the bounty on her head doesn’t follow her. This book is full of being chased through the streets and canals of Venice, the descriptions are awesome, didn’t want to put the book down. Well worth the read.

Your gonna love Ronin! I won't give you a synopsis of the story because you can read that above. What I will tell you there was enough suspense to keep you turning the pages and enough romance to give you a satisfied ending! Written as a clean romance there are passages that mention them being together and using protection but no descriptive sex scenes. This romance will give you a great afternoon of reading and have you looking for more stories by Elle James.

Ronin is a Seal on a mission to find the woman he had met two years previously. Isabella is the woman and you will enjoy the fact she is no push over! She is strong in her own right, that is always a draw for me. Their story is a quick read but well worth it!

This was a pretty fast paced read. Ronin and Isabella's lives both separately and together were full of action and suspense. The chemistry between Ronin and Isabella was very intense considering they had been past for two years. Ronin's Return will keep you fully engaged and on the edge of your seat until the last pages. I voluntarily read and reviewed this Advanced Reader Copy.

Ronin, a Navy Seal, is in Venice on his first vacation in nearly two years. He returned to the place where he met Isabella two years ago. He knew it was crazy to think he could find her, but returned anyway as he never forgot her. Isabella, feeling like a prisoner in her home, decides to take a walk. With no real destination in mind, she ends up at the little cafe where she met Ronin two years ago. When Ronin mistakenly calls out her name for someone else, she turns around thinking she's dreaming. Ronin can't believe he's found Isabella and quickly realizes his feelings for her haven't changed. She's "the one", but she's keeping secrets.... Isabella has led a sheltered life. As the daughter of a multi-million dollar father, she's an easy target for kidnappers. As such, her father has her on "lock down". After meeting Ronin two years ago, she decides she too needs to do something in order to make a difference in people's lives. She tells her overprotective father that she's going to Africa, but really sneaks into an ISIS stronghold. While there, she helps free women who are being raped and worse. She's also responsible for the death of an ISIS leader's brother and now has a target on her back. So she returns to Venice, but has brought trouble with her. Upon finding Isabella again, Ronin senses something is wrong. He just doesn't realize how bad things are about to get..... Elle James is a master of romatic suspense! There are several twists and turns that caught me by surprise. I couldn't stop reading!!! If you enjoy romantic suspense, this is a must read. It's a quick, suspenseful, romantic story and thoroughly enjoyable. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

Great read! I volunteered to review this book and received an ARC to read. I love suspense. I love romance, I loved Ronin's Return. We all expect Seals to be great, and we know they need strong women. Isabella can be my best friend! There was a little red herring in there, I kept waffling, Oh they are after him, no her, could be either or. Thank you for another great read.

If you like lots of super steamy sex scenes, action and suspense then this is the book for you. The plot was very well done. The storyline flowed quite well and the characters are three dimensional and very realistic. All the Magnus brothers are tough and sexy and Ronin is a dream come true. Isabella is a feisty, very independent and strong heroine. They fit together perfectly. This story was definitely one I couldn't put down until I finished. I love the Magnus brothers and can't wait for the next book!

Elle James – Ronin’s Return (Hearts & Heroes – Book 3) Ms. James always provides her readers with a wonderful stand-alone Military Romance book and in this case, a great installment to the series. Background: The series is based on three brothers who are all in the U.S. military. Wyatt Magnus was in the Army Special forces, Mack is a Marine, Ronin is a Seal and Sam is an Army helicopter pilot. They have a younger sister, Abby, who is with the U.S. Foreign Service stationed in the Ukraine embassy. The series is about this family who love their country and are part of the best of the best. If you have not read Ms. James’ books before, you will not be disappointed. She will entertain you and take you on a fast paced, hair raising journey with the sweetest romance that will have you reaching for a fan. Don’t miss this wonderful story about Ronin and Isabella Piscano, a Venice heiress with an over protected Itilian Father and she is just as brave as her Navy Seal. “I volunteered and received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.”

James has written a heartfelt romantic suspense in Ronin's Return. After two years of not seeing each other Ronin and Isabella are reunited in a crowded venue during Carnival in Venice. That's where the adventure begins and the action doesn't let up in this well-paced romantic suspense. The characters are well-written and the story is action packed. I highly recommend this book to fans of the romantic suspense/military romance genres. I voluntarily read and reviewed a complementary copy of this book.

Another good romance suspense story with a happy-ever-after. Ronin has gone back to Venice where he first met Isabella two years ago. It was only for a short time but he hasn't been able to forget her and now he wants to find her again to see if they can rekindle those feelings. While Ronin has been off being a Navy SEAL the past couple of years, Isabella has been involved in some dangerous activities of her own. Not even her wealthy father knew what she has really been doing. However, those activities are about to catch up with her and not in a good way. This put several lives in danger and Ronin will do what it takes to protect Isabella. I enjoyed reading this third book in the Hearts and Heroes series.

A great story! This is a fairly quick read about a sexy SEAL and an Italian woman. Ronin and Isabella met during Carnival in Venice, Italy and spent a weekend together. Both of them felt a deep connection but Isabella was insistent that the relationship couldn't be any more than just that weekend; she didn't even tell Ronin her last name. Fast forward two years and Ronin has never been able to get her out of his mind. He returns to Italy during Carnival determined to either find her or get her out of his mind forever. Keep in mind that this story is a romance and romance novels are often about the fantasy. While it seems entirely improbable that Ronin should find her again I love the way Elle James made it happen. During the two years they were apart Isabella secretly spent months as the Angel of Mercy helping to save women being persecuted by ISIS in Syria. Her efforts earned her the wrath of Abu Ahmad al-Jahashi, an influential ISIS leader, after she killed his brother, Haji. For this reason she tells Ronin that their relationship can't go anywhere; she won't put him in jeopardy. I loved the romance and suspense in this story; it kept me glued to my ereader such that I finished it in one sitting. There is a lot of action in addition to the suspense and the pace of the story is very quick. I felt the connection between Isabella and Ronin and enjoyed reading about their romance. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

Once again, the talented Elle James, gives us a story filled with complex plot and sub-plots, well developed strong male and female characters, bad guys, and in this one, an enchanting location , Venice, with it’s canals and dark alleys . The main characters are Ronin Magnus, a Navy Seal who met Isabella Russo 2 years before during Carnival and lost track of her. He’s decided to return to Venice during his vacation and find her. Was she really as wonderful as he remembered? Little does he know who Isabella really is and what she’s been up to. Aside from the romance and suspense, I appreciate the fact that the author reminds us that even in this day and age, slavery, rape, and brutality are inflicted upon women and children. Individuals with no defenses and resources. Another story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. You can never go wrong with this talented author. I was gifted this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
