The characters are great .... and there is one, especially, that really knocked me for a loop. There's lot of action and many of the same characters from the first book. This is a short, easy read, guaranteed to keep you glued to the pages until the very surprising end. 4 Stars for the book ... 5 stars for the series. Many thanks to the author / Amazon Publishing / Netgalley who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

    It was an entertaining read. I love this world and these characters. I wasn't overly surprised at the outcome. There were times I wanted to shake the characters that they could figure out where certain people had gone. And there was a plot hole because the author said at one point all the characters had gotten out their cars, only to have one exit again even though they technically had gotten back in the car. But still, it was short and held my attention. And the narration was great. It was an entertaining read. I love this world and these characters. I wasn't overly surprised at the outcome.

    The story continues from the celebrity murdered at the campground. As the murderer who has confessed is being transported he is abducted. Now the manhunt begins. Great 2nd part of the story. I would like to thank the Publisher and Net Galley for the chance to read this ARC.

    For those who read the Rogue River novellas, Death and Her Devotion and Burned by Her Devotion are nice follow up stories to the next phase of the main characters. Burned by Her Devotion focuses on Zeth and Carly as Zeth picks up the investigation of the murder of Chase Ryan while Zane and Stevie are on their honeymoon. The investigation takes a few interesting twists which I really enjoyed. I also enjoyed seeing Zeth and Carly working together and growing as a couple.

    Burned by Her Devotion is such a wild journey in just over 100 pages. There are so many twists and turns as Seth and Carly try to unravel the mystery from the previous novella. The pace is fast and the writing is engaging as always, with quite a bit of action and some lovely character moments. The element of surprise is still pretty heavy in this and so well done. The mystery has another layer for the characters to uncover and the execution is great.

The characters were pretty much the same, except for the switch to Detective Seth Harding as the investigating officer and his wife Carly Taylor (Stevie's sister) involved in a child protection case. The story moves quickly and keeps you turning the pages. This was an enjoyable read. This book brings the whole stalker issue, that is facing many celebrities, to the forefront and takes it to the extreme of what could happen. This is a book that can be read in one sitting, but YOU MUST read Death and hHr Devotion first. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

Brianna is nice and safe and Toby who was Chase's friend and assistant is sitting in prison after confessing to the murder and the stalker is off in the wind. It seems they have things nicely tied up but of course, things are never that simple in Solitude, Oregon as our first incident happens when Seth and his partner are transporting Toby in the back of their squad car and they are hit by a truck. The book then has Seth and his friends on the force hunting down for Toby who is now on the run. Meanwhile, Carly has her hands full as our stalker had a young daughter Alex who has now run away from the home that Carly had placed her in. Carly believes she is on the run to meet up with her mother and in danger. However, what happens when Carly learns that everything was an act and that looks and judgments can be deceiving and she finds herself in danger as someone out there is determined to finish Alex's aka Chase Ryan's last episode as the show finished on a cliffhanger and now Carly and Toby are the main attractions. Burned by her Devotion was another good mystery from Melinda Leigh and if you are looking for a new US Mystery author to add to your reading lists, you won't be disappointed with Melinda Leigh.

    This book is the sequel to Death and her devotion. Just when you think its all over, things are about to reach a dramatic conclusion. Chase Ryan's killer is abducted on his way to jail. Someone has their own plans for him. Detective Seth is on the case, he has a killer and a kidnapper to catch. Plenty of twists and turns before reaching a climax.

    2.5 stars. This novella's mystery/suspense aspect was stronger than most of the other installments in this series. Now that the angst between the MCs, Carly and Seth, is over, I'm enjoying reading about their relationship a lot. The resolution of the Rogue Vows was surprising and a bit sad. I'm looking forward to reading the next novellas, Rogue Justice. 2.5 stars. This novella's mystery/suspense aspect was stronger than most of the other installments in this series.

Her storyline touches on manipulation, attempted murder, arson, and kidnapping. Leigh’s protagonists Seth Harding and his wife find themselves in the middle of unfolding events including ongoing investigations of the murdered TV star, the destruction of The Grange by an arsonist, two attempted murders and deranged stalker. Leigh’s storyline continues moving at lightning speed when a semi-truck runs the two patrol cars transporting the confessed murderer of TV star Chase Ryan off the road. Seth determines the attack on both cars was intentional in order to kidnap the killer. The town of Solitude is still coming to terms with new events connected to the murder and the work of the arsonist. The author introduces support characters both good and evil describing their roles in her story. While Seth is continuing the investigation into the murder, kidnapping, and the arsonist, he uncovers dark secrets of the deceased TV star, creating a list of suspects that include his family, friends, his outspoken agent, and a deranged stalker. The murder investigation overlaps Carly’s investigation of the troubled daughter abandoned by the missing stalker. The storyline’s pace never slows down keeping readers on their toes challenging them to keep up with each of the curve balls Leigh throws into the mix. Seth’s investigation uncovers clues leading to new dangers and motives. Leigh changes direction of her storyline moving towards the gut-wrenching climax placing Seth and Carly in danger. The author keeps readers’ interest high as she builds up to her explosive ending. BURNED BY HER DEVOTION delivers a fast moving mystery while at the same time adding a little romance and Taylor family time.

Seth was following behind for added support & when his own vehicle is under control he discovers that Toby is missing & the office driving Toby is bleeding badly.

Everyone in the police & sheriff's department are looking for the two missing people & are sent in all different directions following leads. When Carly finally believe she knows where Alex is headed she & police office Kenny head that way. Will they find Alex? Will Seth find Toby? Did Toby kill Chase? Or did someone else kill Chase? I must again admit, I am a fan of Melinda Leigh's writing. I like this collaboration between Melinda Leigh & Kendra Elliot, their writing styles complete one another perfectly. This book is another good murder mystery short story taking you on a journey tracking down a murderer but is it the man who confessed? You will have to read the book to find out! I will be reading more books by both of these ladies. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the genre & anyone one interested in branching out beyond what they normally read. I voluntarily reviewed a NetGalley.com copy of this book.

    Another novella set in Solitude, BURNED BY HER DEVOTION follows up on the events that start in DEATH AND HER DEVOTION when Chase Ryan is killed so if you haven't read DEATH AND HER DEVOTION yet I would suggest that you do so first. This novella focuses on Seth and his wife Carly as they are trying to track down a missing girl and a missing murderer. It's fast paced and the reader never knows what is right around the corner. I also really enjoyed getting the chance to know Seth and Carly better.

    I enjoy the Rogue River books by these two ladies. They have strong and interesting characters, a small town setting on the West Coast, and mysteries that keep me guessing. And let's not forget the romantic relationships, sweet, stormy, and sexy. "Burned by Her Devotion" starts where "Death and Her Devotion" left off. We have more than one villain this time around, and while one was obvious, the other was less so. There was one character who completely fooled me; I sure didn't see it coming.

    Burned by Her Devotion is very well written. The book had thrills and suspense including several red herrings and one really unexpected twist. I definitely didn’t know who was guilty until near the end. I didn’t read the first book and wonder if that would have helped me get into this one. I didn’t really identify with any of the characters though it was nice to see a married couple, Seth and Carly, who’d weathered storms and found their way back to a solid marriage.

    Who is the guilty party? This is the follow-up to the first book. There’s an accident and the man who confessed to the murder escapes. Did he really kill his friend? Where is he now? Things evolve and although we sort of know who the real murderer is, there’s a surprise at the end. Another excellent story not to be missed!

A man hunt is on it's way to find Cyndee, while they have her daughter, Alex, in a foster home. Something does not sit right with Seth and he has a feeling the suspect he has in custody is not guilty. So he follows his gut and so much happens with the events that follow you have to read this book to find out more. Carly, Seth's wife and social worker, finds herself in trouble Alex ran away and she is trying desperately to get back to her mother. Alex leads everyone on a goose hunt. I want to say more but then I will spoil the whole book. Just know that nothing is ever what it seems and you will see what I mean soon in this story. Don't worry for those who are like me and need a little bit of romance in their stories. You will get the back story of what Seth and Carly struggled through within their relationship. And with every struggle they can over come, it will make their love stronger. Soul mates these two are. I highly recommend this book. Full of suspense that has you going all the way until the end! Melinda rocks with her books.

    (Review of both series books) Though you can absolutely read the Rogue Vows series without having read the other two (Rogue River #1-4 and Rogue Winter #1-2; I've read the second series but not the first--yet) but you really need to read both of the books in this series in order to get the full story. And don't accidentally start with book two, as I did--thankfully I realized it a few pages in, but it did already tell me more about the first one than I wanted to know ahead of time...still, even al (Review of both series books) Though you can absolutely read the Rogue Vows series without having read the other two (Rogue River #1-4 and Rogue Winter #1-2; I've read the second series but not the first--yet) but you really need to read both of the books in this series in order to get the full story. And don't accidentally start with book two, as I did--thankfully I realized it a few pages in, but it did already tell me more about the first one than I wanted to know ahead of time...still, even already knowing a few crucial details of book one before I read it, I really enjoyed both of these books. This time around, our two couples--Solitude's police chief and fellow officer Zane and Stevie in Elliott's book, who are finally this close to their wedding day and Leigh's detective and social worker and nine years married Seth and Carly--are trying to solve the unexpected and rather gruesome murder of a major television star. There are all kinds of suspects--are Chase Ryan's friends really his friends?, family secrets, and a pyromaniac stalker. Things throughout the books are not always as they seem, and the resolution we achieve at the end of book one might not last for long. Who is the real murderer? And throughout it all, relationship questions remain--will Zane and Stevie's wedding actually happen? Can Seth and Carly resolve the mystery (and live to tell the tale!) and still celebrate their anniversary with some alone time? I'm not going to tell you--give these two books a read and find out for yourself! They're novellas, so it won't take you long to satisfy your curiosity :) Rating: 4 stars / B+ I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of these books.

    This picks up the plot from Death and Her Devotion and follows the investigation into the murder of a popular TV star. It continues one day after the events of the first book in the 'Rogue Vows' series. They need to be read in order. In this one, the focus shifts to Seth, a detective, and his wife, Carly, a social worker. The murder case which seemed as good as solved suddenly throws up entirely new scenarios, and the plot twists and turns at lightning speed.

The murder case which seemed as good as solved suddenly throws up entirely new scenarios, and the plot twists and turns at lightning speed. There was one jaw-dropping moment when one of the characters had me totally fooled. Never saw any of that coming. A gripping story delivered in an easy to read manner and highly recommended for anybody who enjoys solid romantic suspense novels. I hope Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot will continue to collaborate in this fashion. I'm a fan of all the Rogue novellas. I received an ARC via NetGalley.

    This is the second book in the Rogue Vows series but Death and her Devotion the first book should definitely be read before reading this book! This book takes off immediately after the first book ends with the confessed killer in jail.

The police chief and his wife are off on their honeymoon and Deputy Seth Harding is overseeing the transfer of the prisoner. Seth has a feeling that not all is what it seems in this case and when the prisoner is kidnapped he must find not only the original prisoner but the person behind the kidnapping. I won't say too much about the plot because I don't want to give it away except that the mystery is intense and the characters take some surprising turns. I loved the mystery in this novella and that the romance centered around a couple who had been married for years. There was plenty of action and it was easily read in one sitting. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this book.

    This novella really should have been sold as part 2 of single book with two authors, as I feel that Rogue Vows #1 by Kendra Elliot and #2 by Melinda Leigh are incomplete on their own. Part 2 had a pretty good story, but not outstanding enough to make me seek out more by the author. I did like the emphasis on rescuing animals. Over-the-border horse slaughter is mentioned, and I had to look this up. It turns out that slaughtering and selling horse meat has been outlawed in the United States, where This novella really should have been sold as part 2 of single book with two authors, as I feel that Rogue Vows #1 by Kendra Elliot and #2 by Melinda Leigh are incomplete on their own.

Over-the-border horse slaughter is mentioned, and I had to look this up. It turns out that slaughtering and selling horse meat has been outlawed in the United States, whereas Canada is one of the only countries in the world still shipping live horses for slaughter, almost all of which are destined to be butchered in Japan.

    Witty and fun The story picks up a day after the first book ends. Seth and Carly are the focused couple and the story is looking at the arson loose ends and a kidnapping of the individual who confessed to murder. There are quite a few whoa moments and aww reactions. I enjoyed the crime solving and man hunt, but also the emotional and family development. Bruce made a big devious, though not surprising. Patsy is a rockstar as usual and the Taylor family as a whole is outstanding. The community memb Witty and fun The story picks up a day after the first book ends.

Great story, community and I hope to read more about Rogue River!
