Spotlight & Review: Gunning for Marie by Tracey Steinbach

Gunning for Marie
by Tracey Steinbach
Genre: Dystopian Romance/Military Romance

Several years after the third World War, resources are scarce. The poor are poorer and the middle class doesn't exist anymore. A man with resources travels from city to town buying teenagers from desperate parents and orphanages. The teens are educated, fed and clothed as appropriate for their end purpose, Soldier or Breeder. A strong, young woman, Marie Rice, falls for Gunnar Lincoln. Their attraction is forbidden, Marie meant for someone else. Disturbing events on the island lead to Gunnar and Marie looking for a way to escape and save everyone else. While they bide their time, attraction turns to something stronger. Will they escape? Will they save the others?
My Review:
This one hooked me from the start and I read it straight through in one sitting.
It was very fast paced and exciting read. A sweet romance with a little steam, and lots of action it kept me wanting more.
 I really like Marie. She's a tough chick who's been trained as a soldier but is also starting to realize that she's a woman. I found her feelings for Gunnar very sweet.
 Gunnar was really great too. He respected Marie and was in love with her. He also tried so hard to protect her.  They made a sweet couple.
 This was a unique idea in the dystopian world. I really enjoyed it and plan on reading more from this author.
