Virtue and Valor Series #8

LEOPOLD SCHäFER, the only child of Major Charlene Radden and former spy, Karl Schäfer has trained his enter life for this moment in time. An American spy undercover in a Nazi uniform operating under the codename VALOR, he receives a promotion to Oberleutnant and a new duty assignment in charge of the prisoners in Occupied France’s Valeurville prison. In the wake of Marie Perrin, codename Temperance’s arrest, Leo must handle the situation with the utmost caution. On one hand, every instinct in his heroic mind screams to protect the beautiful wireless operator from the hands of the Nazis. On the other, he cannot risk compromising his cover. It takes quick thinking and not a small amount of prayer to shield her from the harsh interrogation tactics of the Schutzstaffel trained interrogator. While he personally sees to her health and safety, he realizes that more than his cover is at risk as his feelings for the beautiful spy grow. As her situation grows more grave, he must focus on the bigger picture and the whole mission and make the hardest decision of his life. Can he protect her without blowing his own cover, or will he place his own life in danger to keep her safe?


Hallee Bridgeman is a best-selling Christian author who writes action-packed romantic suspense focusing on realistic characters who face real world problems. Her work has been described as everything from refreshing to heart-stopping exciting and edgy. Hallee loves coffee, campy action movies, and regular date nights with her husband. Above all else, she loves God with all of her heart, soul, mind, and strength; has been redeemed by the blood of Christ; and relies on the presence of the Holy Spirit to guide her.

My thoughts:

This is the first book I have ever read by Hallee, although  have wanted to for a long time, I just hadn’t gotten around to it.

I definitely love WWII stories so was excited to read this novella. I was worried I might be lost because this is series but I had no trouble grabbing a hold of the characters and what was going on.

In this short book we are thrown into some nail-biting situations that had me up late at night reading. I came to care for Valor easily and wanted him to succeed.

I wasn’t expecting the ending when it occurred. I was reading along and then my mind thought, wait this feels like a wrap up. I was disappointed because I wanted to the story to go on, but I guess that is good thing because I was enjoying it 🙂

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed WWII stories with a bit of romance.
