Sister-in-Law

I'm a voracious reader, and as such am always on the lookout for new authors to try. After all, there's nothing quite like discovering a new and talented writer. So, when I read the blurb for Sister-in-Law, the first novel by M.R. Morgan, I decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately however, I won’t ...

Dirty Games

I’ve read and enjoyed a handful of HelenKay Dimon’s romantic suspense novels, some of them m/f, and some m/m, so I know pretty much what to expect from her;  a fast-paced, energetic and steamy story that is perhaps longer on action than it is on romance – which is exactly what I got.  Dirty ...

The Woman Left Behind

The Woman Left Behind is the best kind of romantic suspense in the sense that the heroine is no damsel in distress requiring rescue but neither is she a beefed up black-ops assassin as are found in so many female-empowered stories of this genre. Instead she’s somewhere in between; she’s basical ...

Raw Power

As a longtime fan of Jackie Ashenden's writing, you'll find that most of my reviews for her books feature words like 'Intense!' and 'Steamy!'. This applies whether she's writing erotic romances like her Living In ... and Lies We Tell series or riveting romantic suspense like her Nine Circles series. ...

Zero Hour

I don't know about you, but some of my favourite authors are the ones who have a particular genre or style and tend to stick with it. Sure, there's always the risk of one day waking up bored with it all, but often it's easy and delightful to come back to what you love and get exactly what you want o ...

Claiming Bailey

Susan Stoker has a few romantic suspense novels under her belt but Claiming Bailey is the first of hers that I've read. It's the third story in her Ace Security series, about a group of brothers who run a security company in Castle Rock, Colorado with the aim of aiding battered women and children. ...

Promise Not to Tell

Promise Not to Tell is book two in the Cutler, Sutter & Salinas detective agency series. The story of a man and woman united by a unique childhood, it’s a mystery which highlights the stuff of which modern day nightmares are made. For Seattle gallery owner Virginia Troy there is a before an ...

The Pretender

HelenKay Dimon has made a name for herself writing romantic suspense stories with male/female and male/male couples. I've read a handful from a few different series and they've all been exciting, sexy and entertaining romances. In The Pretender, the third book of the Games People Play series, a murd ...

The Negotiator

In HelenKay Dimon’s Games People Play series, the heroes are all men who bonded in their youth when they were taken under the wing of someone named Quint, who saved them from the downward spirals they were in, helped all of them learn to utilise their unique skill-sets and set them on the straight ...

Exploited

Exploited, the first book in A. Meredith Walters’ two-part Zero Day romance serial, features a topical premise that is largely wasted amidst a sea of poorly-written characters and improbable scenarios. After weeks of putting the book down and forcing myself to pick it back up again, I cannot recom ...
