Publisher's Summary

Navy Captain Wes Masters, newly posted to head the White House Medical Unit, is a physician with only one patient, but her job is twenty-four/seven. Her charge is simple - protect and preserve the well-being of the most powerful man in the world - the President of the United States. As the First Physician, Wes must travel by President Andrew Powell's side, in the hot zone, and with everything she needs to save his life, or in case he becomes injured or falls ill. Her job gets even harder when she has to prove she is up to the task to Secret Service Agent, Evyn Daniels, a member of the elite Presidential Protection Detail, and a woman who challenges Wes on more than just the professional front...
Evyn isn't happy about inserting Wes into PPD, especially since Evyn believes the post should have gone to her good friend, Dr. Peter Chang. The stakes soon get even higher for all involved, when Homeland Security's Deputy Director, Cameron Roberts, is brought in to investigate a possible security breach, and everyone, including Evyn, is a suspect.

Audible Editor Reviews

Oath of Honor is the third book in the First Responders series by Radclyffe. Combining personal drama with political realism a la "The West Wing", this audiobook is the story of Captain Wes Masters, first physician to the fictional president of the United States, Andrew Powell. As if the high-stress job wasn't enough, social rivalries and romantic intrigues break out within the Presidential Protection Detail. This couldn't be good for the President's safety….
Betsy Zajko's expressive voice has a smooth, silk-like tone, allowing listeners to really digest each detail of the prose.

Thumbs up to the story, thumbs down to narrator

I'm a Radclyffe fan but have only listened to her books on Audible. I might've enjoyed this book more if I would've read it instead of listened to audio version. But I just did not connect with this one like I did others in Honor series (this one is major spinoff and segue into Honor book #8). I prefer Abby Craden as narrator for Radclyffe because she makes each character their own & gives an actual performance. That's especially true for Blair & Cam's character/ongoing love story.

I'm sorry but Betsy Zajko just doesn't do it for me as a narrator. She did not make me fall in love with Wes & Evan's story...& she did not do any justice to Blair & Cam in this book. I could never distinguish one character from another because Betsy doesn't even attempt to change her voice. There is little to no inflection, except when she's narrating a sex scene. But even then, her performances almost always cause laughter from me because it just sounds so over-performed & unbelievable. It cheapens the story in my opinion. And she makes it very difficult to follow along with the story in general. It's almost impossible for me to invest in the book and connect with it or the characters when I have trouble keeping up with who's supposedly speaking at any moment. When you're narrating a book with so many female characters, it would go a very very long way to give each of them at least a semi-unique voice. Sigh. I just did not like this one at all, sorry Radclyffe.

Would you listen to Oath of Honor again? Why?

Yes. I plan to when I get back to that section in the honor series now that I know it is a part of a series kind of.


What does Betsy Zajko bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I enjoyed her a lot she made the hot scenes very enjoyable. She had a good range in voices that made it nice to listen to .
