Touching Evil

Before reading Touching Evil make sure to turn on the lights and lock the doors, because Hooper has created a story with a mood of terror that will seep into your very bones. Maggie Barnes is a sketch artist for the Seattle police department. She has a special empathic skill that allows her to see…

I Got You, Babe by Jane Graves

I Got You, Babe by Jane Graves

Early on in this novel, I got the impression that it shared a similarity with certain popular Susan Elizabeth Phillips stories: if you can get past an early unpleasant-to-read scene, there’s an excellent book in store for you. While it wasn’t exactly on the same level as those stories, Jane Graves’ latest offering, I Got…

Darkling I Listen

Labeled as a romantic suspense, Darkling I Listen lives up to its billing – and more. Oh, baby! Brandon Carlyle is the sexiest, most tormented hero I have read in several years. As a beautiful young boy, he was taken to Hollywood by Cara, Stage-Mother-From-Hell, and has been betrayed by nearly everyone he’s ever known….

Mercy

Mercy introduces Theo Buchanan, brother of Heartbreaker Nick, and Dr. Michelle (Mike) Renard, who meet when Theo throws up all over Dr. Mike’s shoes! Dr. Mike has become the target of a mysterious vandal and Theo uses his Justice Deptartment connections to try to unravel the mystery surrounding Michelle before they are both killed. Linda:  Julie…

Mercy

If you’re looking for a romantic suspense book with great characters and a truly suspenseful story, then have Mercy; you’ll love it. (Okay, some puns are just too obvious to resist.) Dr. Michelle Renard saves Justice Department lawyer Theo Buchanan’s life at a New Orleans hotel. Theo has an acute appendicitis attack and collapses on…

The Gingerbread Man

I credit Maggie Shayne for getting me hooked on vampire romances. Her Wings in the Night series were the first vampire romances I read, and in my mind, the best. To my knowledge, this is her first foray into full-length romantic suspense, and it’s a good start. Vince O’Mally is a Syracuse, New York, detective…

Know by Heart by Angela Winters

I’d never read an Arabesque book before but I wasn’t disappointed. Angela Winters tells a pretty riveting story in Know by Heart, and while I couldn’t relate exactly to the discriminatory problems faced by the lead characters, I did find them to be interesting and involving. Both the hero and heroine of this story are…

The Witness by Ginna Grey

A woman in peril and the man who must keep her alive are thrown together and have only each other to turn to during moments of danger. Sounds really exciting, doesn’t it? However, this strong premise was undermined by somewhat weak characters in this cabin/road romance. Former concert pianist Lauren Brownley finds herself hiding in…
