Off the Grid

Off the Grid is book two in Monica McCarty’s series, The Lost Platoon, and although I haven’t read the previous book (Going Dark) I was able to follow the plot in this one without any trouble, so it worked perfectly well as a standalone.  What didn’t work so well, however, were the hackneyed ...

The Wolf at the Door

In January, I had the pleasure of reading The Wolf at the Door, the début novel from Charlie Adhara.  I thought it was terrific and couldn’t wait to review it for All About Romance.  So you can imagine my surprise when, after receiving an early copy of the second book in the series, The Wolf at ...

Cold Blooded

I’ve been reading more and more romantic suspense novels of late, and although Toni Anderson is an author who’s been on my radar for a while, for some reason, I’ve not yet got around to reading anything of hers.  After reading her guest post here at AAR a few weeks ago, I decided to rectify t ...

Firestorm

I’ve been eager to get my hands on Firestorm, the third book in Rachel Grant’s gripping Flashpoint series, for months - and it was definitely worth the wait.  This is one high-octane, high-stakes ride; steamy, complex, intricately plotted, politically astute and emotionally fraught, Firestorm i ...

Relentless

I’m always on the look-out for reliably good new authors of romantic suspense, and in Elizabeth Dyer, I think I’ve found one.  Relentless, the second book in her Somerton Security series (and her second published novel), is a strongly-written, fast-paced story featuring a team of ex-military ty ...

The Girl in the Moss

Loreth Anne White's two Angie Pallorino novels, The Drowned Girls and The Lullaby Girl received high praise here at AAR. The third and final book in the trilogy releases this month, and Maggie Boyd and Dabney Grinnan - both fans of the author's work - read The Girl in the Moss and are here to share ...

Object of Desire

Reviewing romantic suspense is a bit of a sticky wicket, as it’s extremely difficult to discuss a suspense novel without spoiling it. Reader, Object of Desire has so many of secrets (and potential bad guys) it’s difficult to keep track of them all!  And then Ms. Maclean further muddies the wate ...

Her Last Word

I’ve read and enjoyed a number of Mary Burton’s romantic suspense novels and have generally found them to contain complex, intriguing mysteries with a reasonably-sized helping of romance that is enough to satisfy my shippy little heart.  Unfortunately however, Ms. Burton’s latest standalone t ...

Taking Chase

Cassie Gambol is in hiding. Like, witness protection level hiding. Her abusive ex-husband is on the hunt for her, so she’s escaped their life and reinvented herself from Carly Sutherland of Los Angeles to Cassie Gambol of Petal, Georgia. As much as she’s trying to fly under the radar, however, s ...
