Romantic Suspense

Incriminating Evidence

This is the fourth book in Rachel Grant’s Evidence series, but fortunately, this is a series in which all the stories are self-contained, so it’s not absolutely necessary to have read the other books.  There are some characters who have obviously appeared before and it’s clear that certain pl ...

Person of Interest

Romantic Suspense is one of my favorite sub-genres in romance and is one that can be very difficult to do well. Emery Harper has entered that select group of credible suspense writers with her début novel, Person of Interest. A murder mystery served up with a dose of humor and a realistic hero who ...

A Change of Heart

A Change of Heart is my second Sonali Dev novel;  I enjoyed The Bollywood Bride, and had high hopes for this one.  Unfortunately, the misleading categorization (women’s fiction) and my assumption that like its predecessor (which is linked to this story), it was a romance, left me confused about ...

The Talented Mr. Rivers

I started HelenKay Dimon’s The Talented Mr. Rivers because the blurb reminded me of Anne Stuart’s Ice series. Vulnerable innocent paired with a dangerous man who’s hiding far more than he shows… sounded like catnip, and the M/M factor sealed the deal. My first mistake was to have thought ...

Her Rogue Alpha

Her Rogue Alpha is the fifth book in Paige Tyler's X-Ops series, combining military and government forces special operation missions with paranormal elements, specifically characters that are shifters or genetically enhanced hybrids. The combination of tight, action packed sequences with the skills ...

Indecent Proposal

Katee Robert is back with another book of forbidden romance between crime families, and fans of the first two books will be happy to know that this is another strong instalment. An Indecent Proposal may be my least favorite of the three books in the series, but it’s still a great read that lived ...

In the Barren Ground

Loreth Anne White’s latest book is set in the Barren Lands, a vast swath of sparsely inhabited region in northern Canada. While I liked the unique setting and found the central mystery well-done, the romance portion of the book didn’t really work for me. In the Barren Ground is an atmospheric th ...

The Secrets She Kept

The Secrets She Kept is the second book in Brenda Novak's Fairham Island series about a prominent family on… you've got it... Fairham Island. In the first book, The Secret Sister, Maisy Lazarow returns to Fairham Island to help her troubled brother Keith and ends up unearthing old family secrets a ...

Burn Down the Night

Burn Down the Night is the third book in author Molly O’Keefe’s suspenseful romance series Everything I Left Unsaid. The first two books, Everything I Left Unsaid and The Truth About Him were a duology featuring Annie and Dylan, with book one told from Annie’s point of view and book two, a con ...

Heart Strike

Heart Strike is the second book in M.L. Buchman’s Delta Force series, but the first of his that I’ve read. When I’m not reading romances, I’m a big fan of espionage thrillers (the Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum variety) and so I was intrigued to see how a male writer would take those kinds of sce ...
