Unlawful Contact

Narrated by Kaleo Griffith Marc Hunter is duking it out with Gabe Rossiter (Naked Edge) for my favorite I-Team hero so far. So I had high expectations when I started this listen. Happily for me, those expectations were met and my love for Marc (and Kaleo Griffiths’ narration) remains. Sophie ...

Relentless

This is my first time reading anything from Crimson Romance, and I have to say it wasn't an entirely auspicious beginning. Relentless has a unique setting, and if it were a house, one might say it has good bones. The basic premise of the story definitely caught my interest, but the execution leaves ...

Heat Seeker

Military-themed romances tend to have a few key components: a very protective alpha hero; a feisty heroine, usually from the hero’s past; and a tight-knit team of soldiers. Heat Seeker has all these things, and yet doesn’t seem clichéd or overdone. Okay, maybe a bit clichéd, but it’s still a ...

Wrongfully Accused

As a romantic suspense debut, Wrongfully Accused comes on strong. Set in Washington DC, the plot involves a convoluted string of events involving everything from political maneuvering to adultery to terrorism. A likable heroine and intricate plotting carry the book and even if the events described s ...

Edge of Sanity

Julian has been trying to bring down a sex trafficking ring run by Mafioso Alexi Burien for years. Skirting just inside the line of th ...

Gold Fire

I’ve never been to a honky tonk. Back in my clubbing days, I was all about flashy, dark dance joints with loud music and fancy, expensive drinks. Gold Fire is about the joy of a good country bar – complete with pool tables, dart boards and line dancing. Barringer’s Pass is a ...

Wildfire at Midnight

Mary Stewart is truly one of the greats. Her books, with their practical heroines and often exotic settings, appeal to the imagination, and she has a way of building tension throughout her narratives in such a way that it reels the reader in easily. Her writing has not only inspired all manner of ro ...

She Can Tell

She Can Tell isn’t a very catchy title, and it took me a minute to figure out how it related to the plot of the story. The book, though, is a solid romantic suspense, even if it doesn’t break any new ground. After a devastating injury ended her riding career, Rachel Parker returned home to her ...
