Damage Control

Damage Control is the first book in Kate McMurray’s Laws of Attraction series, and it opens when top defence attorney Jackson Kane is approached by senatorial candidate Parker Livingston to represent him when, as looks likely to happen, Livingston is arrested for the murder of a woman found dead i ...

Desperate Girls

I’ve enjoyed a number of Laura Griffin’s Tracers series of romantic suspense novels, and have been impressed with her ability to craft fast-paced, complex plots that combine a bit of steam with action-packed set pieces and fascinating, behind-the-scenes detail.  Desperate Girls is book one in a ...

Mesmerized

Welcome to Trinidad - but the hard-working Trinidad of the oil and gas industry, not the sandy beaches and starlight of the world of resorts. Sean Scott is in Public Relations for the Orion methanol company, when her ex, Christian Devane, turns up to work in operations. While helping him open a loca ...

Imperial Stout

I enjoyed Layla Reyne’s Agents Irish and Whiskey romantic suspense novels, and was delighted when the author announced she would be writing a spin-off series featuring two of the prominent secondary characters from those books, Assistant US Attorney (and former Navy SEAL) Dominic Price, and Specia ...

Off the Grid

Off the Grid is book two in Monica McCarty’s series, The Lost Platoon, and although I haven’t read the previous book (Going Dark) I was able to follow the plot in this one without any trouble, so it worked perfectly well as a standalone.  What didn’t work so well, however, were the hackneyed ...

The Wolf at the Door

In January, I had the pleasure of reading The Wolf at the Door, the début novel from Charlie Adhara.  I thought it was terrific and couldn’t wait to review it for All About Romance.  So you can imagine my surprise when, after receiving an early copy of the second book in the series, The Wolf at ...

Cold Blooded

I’ve been reading more and more romantic suspense novels of late, and although Toni Anderson is an author who’s been on my radar for a while, for some reason, I’ve not yet got around to reading anything of hers.  After reading her guest post here at AAR a few weeks ago, I decided to rectify t ...

Firestorm

I’ve been eager to get my hands on Firestorm, the third book in Rachel Grant’s gripping Flashpoint series, for months - and it was definitely worth the wait.  This is one high-octane, high-stakes ride; steamy, complex, intricately plotted, politically astute and emotionally fraught, Firestorm i ...

Relentless

I’m always on the look-out for reliably good new authors of romantic suspense, and in Elizabeth Dyer, I think I’ve found one.  Relentless, the second book in her Somerton Security series (and her second published novel), is a strongly-written, fast-paced story featuring a team of ex-military ty ...

The Girl in the Moss

Loreth Anne White's two Angie Pallorino novels, The Drowned Girls and The Lullaby Girl received high praise here at AAR. The third and final book in the trilogy releases this month, and Maggie Boyd and Dabney Grinnan - both fans of the author's work - read The Girl in the Moss and are here to share ...
