Seduced by the Badge

I've enjoyed some of Deborah Fletcher Mello's novels for Kimani, so when I saw her starting a new series with Harlequin Romantic Suspense, I picked up Seduced by the Badge on a whim. While it has a few uneven spots, the book is still very readable, and I enjoyed this author's jump from contemporary ...

Deep Cover

Deep Cover is the third entry in Scarlett Cole’s romantic suspense series, Love Over Duty, which follows three ex-Navy SEALs who’ve launched their own security firm called Eagle Securities. Not only are they brothers through their shared service, but they’ve also had a strong bond since childh ...

Damage Control

Damage Control is the first book in Kate McMurray’s Laws of Attraction series, and it opens when top defence attorney Jackson Kane is approached by senatorial candidate Parker Livingston to represent him when, as looks likely to happen, Livingston is arrested for the murder of a woman found dead i ...

Desperate Girls

I’ve enjoyed a number of Laura Griffin’s Tracers series of romantic suspense novels, and have been impressed with her ability to craft fast-paced, complex plots that combine a bit of steam with action-packed set pieces and fascinating, behind-the-scenes detail.  Desperate Girls is book one in a ...

Mesmerized

Welcome to Trinidad - but the hard-working Trinidad of the oil and gas industry, not the sandy beaches and starlight of the world of resorts. Sean Scott is in Public Relations for the Orion methanol company, when her ex, Christian Devane, turns up to work in operations. While helping him open a loca ...

Against the Wall

Jill Sorenson’s Against the Wall might be my favorite of Ms. Sorenson’s books. Many of her most memorable characters are genuinely hampered by their life choices, often to the point that there really isn’t a scott-free HEA in their future. This is definitely true for Eric Hernandez, the her ...

Imperial Stout

I enjoyed Layla Reyne’s Agents Irish and Whiskey romantic suspense novels, and was delighted when the author announced she would be writing a spin-off series featuring two of the prominent secondary characters from those books, Assistant US Attorney (and former Navy SEAL) Dominic Price, and Specia ...

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 ...
