Horribly scarred, Trace Martin has returned from an Iraqi prison camp a tormented man. He struggles to cope with PTSD and alcoholism, nearly burning down the family home. Brodie, his twin, turns to her best friend Kyle Kincaid for advice on how to help. Kyle, also a former Marine, has been expelled from the military under the DADT policy. The two men dislike each other immediately, but when Trace cleans up, they begin to see an attraction.

Shortly after the two men begin an intense relationship, Brodie’s life is threatened by a monstrous serial killer. The men are thrown into a new role for which they’ve been well trained; protecting Brodie’s life. Add in the irresistible Ryan Harris, Trace's nurse from Walter Reed Hospital and their relationship is further tested. Join Kyle and Trace as they battle for their lives and their families in this exciting conclusion to the Armadillo Series.

Trace Martin and Kyle Kincaid are both Marines whose service to the country has left them scarred. While Trace’s scars are visible and an ever present reminder of the torture he suffered at the hands of his Iraqi captors, Kyle’s invisible scars are just as pain. These are two alpha males who needed to be healed in more ways than one. Once they get past their preconceived notions about the other they begin to do just that.

Patricia Logan’s Warrior Nights is a grippingly, dark tale about the brutalities of war and the victims left in its wake. The way Ms. Logan wrote this tale, you couldn’t help but run through the full gamut of emotions with Trace and Kyle. At times, I liked them both and at other times I wanted to shake some sense into them, but at no time did I ever stop hoping that they would get their HEA. The stalker subplot in this story set was a brilliant device. Not only did it for Trace and Kyle to work together to protect Trace’s sister Brodie, but it “lightened” the dark tone of the book. My only complaint with Warrior Nights was the introduction of Ryan into Trace and Brodie. In my opinion, he was totally unnecessary and his character felt forced into the story. However, this did not prevent me from enjoying this book.

Warrior Nights is the third and final book in the Armadillo series. These books do not have to be read in order, although characters from the first two books do make appearances in this one. After reading Warrior Nights, you’ll definitely want to read the other books in the series.
