Show No Fear

Show No Fear is the latest in a series featuring a team of Navy SEALs. This particular installment is set primarily in Colombia, where the hero and heroine pose as UN operatives/hostage negotiators. It had its moments, but on the whole was mostly an average read. Lucy Donovan dated ...

Tasting Fear

Anthology
Tasting Fear is divided into three stories, connected by the larger plot. Nancy, Nell and Vivi are the adopted daughters of Lucia D'Onofrio. They each came from broken homes as teenagers. One day they receive the horrible news that their foster mother's home has been robbed and Lucia has died of an ...

The Perfect Couple

The Perfect Couple is romantic suspense – heavy on the suspense. The villains of the piece are a husband and wife who lure teens to their home where they torture and kill them. I am not a total wuss (as my boss describes herself) when it comes to violence in books, but this book seriously creepe ...

Dangerous Passion

I’m late to the Lisa Marie Rice party, but it seems as if I’ve missed a big one. Still, while I enjoyed Dangerous Passion very much, doing so required a suspension of disbelief and acceptance of the fact that the author is out to tell a completely over-the-top fairy tale. And it is over the top ...

Pitch Black

Perhaps I’ve become a bit jaded in my reading, but I have to admit I almost didn’t sign up to review Leslie Parrish’s books because of the “A Black CATs Novel” tagline. I think I’ve read too many books with cheesy nicknames, which turned out to be cheesy books. I’m so glad I took a cha ...

One Scream Away

I love it when romantic suspense authors write books that not only have me turning pages to see what will happen next, but also asking, "why?" Kate Brady does a fabulous job with this in the first part of One Scream Away. Not only does every chapter seem to bring a new revelation, but as I read, I ...

Fatal Secrets

Allison Brennan’s newest is a romantic suspense with the emphasis strongly on the suspense. While I found the hero and heroine to be interesting, I was left wanting more romance and less graphic violence. When Sonia Knight was 13 her father sold her to men who raped and murdered an ...

Breakpoint

Breakpoint is the fourth book in the High Risk series. This book stands alone, though there are several references to the event that brought the characters of the series together. The story started out interestingly enough, but sagged a lot in the middle and fell apart at the end. ...

Shoot to Thrill

I can see why Nina Bruhns is developing quite a fan base. Honestly, this sort of relentlessly non-stop action kind of book, usually isn’t my thing, but I enjoyed this one. Quite a bit. The set up is complicated. Nurse Rainie Martin meets ex CIA agent Kick Jackson at a singles g ...
