Ties That Bind

If our heroine had a life quote it would be the following: “You can bind my body, tie my hands, govern my actions - you are the strongest and society adds to your power; but with my will sir, you can do nothing." George Sands originally said this, but Samantha Montgomery lived it.       ...

Love is Murder

Anthology
Any garage sale devotee or antique store aficionado is familiar with the idea of the junk box – a place where for a modest price you can purchase a plethora of odds and ends. Most of the stuff is exactly as the box describes it – junk. Sure, there is the occasional treasure but mostly there is j ...

Afraid to Die

One of the advantages to long running mystery series is that you have the opportunity to watch the characters develop. The disadvantage, especially for small town cops, is that the growing body count makes you wonder why the citizenry doesn't just make a break for it and get out of the murderous com ...

Midnight Rescue

By
I opened up my newest romantic suspense novel, and what did I find? Well, we have a damaged soul turned kickass heroine and a bunch of hot special ops men out to save the world from the bad guys. Obviously, readers will have seen this plot before. Even if some of the trappings feel familiar, Elle ...

Caught in the Act

It’s a rare feat when a romantic suspense story strikes the perfect balance between a believable suspense plot and a satisfying romance. I’m pleased to say that this is one of them. Weekly trips into Tijuana, Mexico are a necessity for Karina Strauss as owner of an upscale store in San Diego ...

If you like your romantic suspense dark and gritty, Edge of Light is worth checking out.

However, the a ...

What most people know about the Maya begins and ends with the facts that they lived in Central America, they had bloody sacrifices, and the world will end in December. Beautiful Sacrifice takes the apocalyptic paranoia and turns it into a fast paced and interesting mystery surrounding violent human ...

Shades of Desire

By
It’s rare to see a hero or heroine with disabilities. I can count on one hand the books I’ve heard of - much less books I’ve read - that have a major character in a wheelchair, or with brain damage, or, as is the heroine in Shades of Desire, blind. It’s a challenging plot and characterizatio ...

No One Left to Tell

Walking the dog. An act so routine most people don't even think much about it as they put on their shoes and snap on the leash. But sometimes waiting on the other side of that door is a big surprise. That's the case for the heroine of this novel as she takes her pooch for a stroll and her life chang ...

Twisted

It's always satisfying to watch an author getting better and better with every book, and with Twisted, Laura Griffin is in top form. This is the third time I've reviewed a book by this author, and each time, she keeps honing her craft. This time around, her latest entry in the Tracers series feature ...
