Mr. and Mr. Smith

Mr. and Mr. Smith is the first in an edgy spy series by HelenKay Dimon who, although she has an impressive backlist of about thirty novels and novellas, is new to me. I also have a not-so-secret love of the occasional alpha-male, spy / militaristic romance stories. Providing the plot is good, and I ...

Line of Fire

Line of Fire has all kinds of elements that should make it a promising read - a tortured hero and heroine who also have some history between them, a second-chance-at-love plotline (love those!) and plenty of angst.

At one point in Hot As Hell, Noah Paxton wants to know what the hell is going on. I did too. I don’t know when I have read a book that had such a convoluted plot as this one. There were times I was totally lost and I still don’t think I’ve got it all figured out. Lexy Stua ...

Right Here, Right Now

Right Here, Right Now is a hot, Romantic Suspense story with a hero and heroine who both work for the government and both keep secrets from each other. It's entertaining enough in its way, if a little unbelievable. Gabby Pearson is absolutely furious when Reed Larkin – the boyfr ...

Your Mouth Drives Me Crazy

Hawaii can be the perfect setting for a romance — it’s hot, sultry, and sexy. Your Mouth Drives Me Crazy is all these things, but it lacked the true, everlasting love that is a must-have component of a strong romance. Kauai Police Chief Kane Travers is annoyed at his forced sus ...
