Knight of Paradise Island by J.L. Campbell is book six of the nine book Knights of the Castle series. This series is a spinoff of the Kings of the Castle series. The books in both series are standalones penned by various authors and can be read in any order.
Female expatriates are being brutally murdered and mutilated near the border of the East Indian country of Durabia. These murders are more than they appear to be. Something terribly sinister is lurking in plain sight. Now Aziza Hampton, an American contract worker, is missing. Her childhood friend and current boyfriend, Dorian “Ryan” Bostwick, is a security specialist in the Bahamas, and he is immediately called to Durabia to investigate her disappearance. Will Ryan find her before it’s too late for them to take their relationship to the next level, or will Aziza face the same fate as the murdered women?
J. L. Campbell tackles a controversial topic that’s ripped from the headlines and adds another winning novel to a series of winners. All the components of a successful novel are present. The characters are likable and relatable. The leading lady, Aziza, is strong, vibrant and beautiful. Ryan, the leading man, is an upstanding, take-charge kind of guy, and, of course, he’s “fine”. The plot is masterful and the action plentiful. This novel will grab your emotions and hold them till the finish. Knight of Paradise Island is a solid 4 out of 5 star readthat I recommend to all readers of romantic suspense and multicultural romance.
