Romantic Suspense

Dangerous Ground

Given the number of disappointing romantic suspense reads I’ve experienced lately, it’s no understatement to say that I’ve been very eagerly awaiting the next book from Rachel Grant, someone I know I can rely on to deliver a fast-paced and tightly-plotted story of mystery and suspense alongsid ...

Blind Tiger

Blind Tiger is a classic Sandra Brown romantic suspense story and if you are a fan of this author or that genre at all, you will definitely want to pick it up. The Great War is over but almost two years after armistice, Thatcher Hutton is still finding his way home. Lack of money and no job means ...

An Absence of Motive

Maggie Wells is the author of a number of contemporary romances  (a couple of which have been reviewed here) and when I noticed her name attached to a new Harlequin Intrigue romantic suspense series, I decided to give her a try.  An Absence of Motive has an interesting and fairly well developed pl ...

The Murder Between Us

Tal Bauer’s The Murder Between Us boasts a couple of well-drawn and engaging protagonists, an intriguing plot and provides the sort of balance between romance and plot I’ve been missing in so many of the m/f romantic suspense titles I’ve read recently. Special Agent Noah Downing has been ...

Dangerous Deception

I love romantic suspense, so “secrets and lies” was a perfect prompt for me. I went digging through my category romances and came up with one that has a rather unusual twist. I’ve dealt with books that have big secrets or people living double lives, but could your whole life be a lie without y ...

Profiling a Killer

Nicole Severn’s Profiling a Killer is the first book in a new, multi-authored Romantic Suspense series featuring the characters who make up a BAU – Behavioural Analysis Unit – of the FBI based in Seattle.  It started well, but it wasn’t long before it became mired in cliché and dumb behavi ...

Redirection

Note: There are spoilers for the previous books in the series in this review. Wow.  I thought Misdirection, the previous book in this series was a tough read; I should have known Gregory Ashe wasn’t finished tying my insides up in knots and putting North and Shaw (and me!) through the emotiona ...

Power Play

Power Play is the third installment in Rachel Dylan’s Capital Intrigue series which follows the dangers and romances of characters from several US government agencies. The novel follows two pairs of investigators as they untangle murders with international consequences. The plot contains interesti ...

Misdirection

Note: There are spoilers for earlier Borealis Investigations books in this review. I suppose I should have expected, after the relatively light-hearted comedic zany-ness of Indirection, that Gregory Ashe would immediately turn around and pull the rug out from under my feet… which is exactly wha ...

Unsuspecting Target

My fellow reviewer Lynn Spencer has favourably reviewed a few of Juno Rushdan’s books here, and as I’m also a fan of romantic suspense, I was keen to try something of hers.  I picked up Ms. Rushdan’s latest release Unsuspecting Target for review and enjoyed it; it’s a quick and easy read fe ...
