As the two of them traverse the streets of Rome fleeing Ariana’s enemies, Michael is sent into a tailspin of conflict—deeply attracted to her yet repulsed by the madness of the situation into which she has thrust him

My Review:

The Rescue Nurse is a unique take on an action packed thriller. It's intense and unpredictable with a complicated romance, but also highly entertaining. One twisted event left me reeling. Once you start reading, it will be hard to put the book down. I'm hoping J. Philip Horne will continue writing books about Rescue Nurse Worldwide and make it into a series with new characters for each book, but with favorite characters from previous books making an appearance.

About the Author:
J. Philip Horne

J. Philip Horne

J. Philip Horne probably shouldn't be alive. Born in Florida, he grew up overseas for the most part, spending much of his childhood in Liberia and Micronesia. During those years, he experienced numerous attempts on his life. The wannabe killers included malaria, spinal meningitis, blood poisoning, a staph infection in his heel bone, a close encounter with a green mamba, and other cold-hearted foes.

From his earliest years, his parents read to him fantastical stories from wonderful worlds. Narnia and Middle Earth featured prominently, and had his youth been a generation later, he would have certainly encountered Hogwarts at a young age. Through his teen years he read stories by many other authors and experienced a host of new worlds.

After dabbling in writing for many years, he finally got serious and wrote his first novel in 2011. He has continued to write ever since. For news of upcoming works, please join Mr. Horne's email list at

Disclosure: I purchased a Kindle copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.
