In Rides Trouble

I am not a motorcycle person so I was a bit worried when I realized that much of In Rides Trouble takes place at a custom bike shop. My qualms were unnecessary, though, as the book's romance was strong enough to withstand the distractions of a fast-paced, action-packed plot - and quite a few motorcy ...

Don't Cry for Me

I am always amazed when I re-discover a long published author. As the story unfolded , I kept thinking to myself, ”This is a good book, why did you stop reading her?” Don’t Cry for Me has some plot holes that typically would drive me crazy, but in the hands of Ms. Sala I didn’t care. The p ...

I opened up my newest romantic suspense novel, and what did I find? Well, we have a damaged soul turned kickass heroine and a bunch of hot special ops men out to save the world from the bad guys. Obviously, readers will have seen this plot before. Even if some of the trappings feel familiar, Elle ...

Kill and Tell

Narrated by Natalie Ross Kill and Tell is a terrific combination – one of my favorite narrators with a work by one of my favorite authors, set in one of my favorite cities, New Orleans. Marc Chastain, NOPD, has a gut feeling that the death of a man deemed homeless just doesn’t fit the normal ...

Death Angel

Narrated by Joyce Bean Back in 2008, I hesitantly picked up the print version of Death Angel wondering if I could enjoy a romance featuring a cold-blooded assassin and a mistress to a drug lord. My curiosity combined with faith in Linda Howard and an appreciation for edgy heroes rewarded me after ...

Caught in the Act

It’s a rare feat when a romantic suspense story strikes the perfect balance between a believable suspense plot and a satisfying romance. I’m pleased to say that this is one of them. Weekly trips into Tijuana, Mexico are a necessity for Karina Strauss as owner of an upscale store in San Diego ...

Beautiful Sacrifice

What most people know about the Maya begins and ends with the facts that they lived in Central America, they had bloody sacrifices, and the world will end in December. Beautiful Sacrifice takes the apocalyptic paranoia and turns it into a fast paced and interesting mystery surrounding violent human ...
