The Dangerous Protector

The Dangerous Protector the second book in a series, and for a time I was totally lost among a crowd of strangers. Evidently the characters had all been introduced in Seductive Imposter and I felt like a Hatfield at a McCoy reunion. While I enjoyed the book, I never quite got over wanting to ask,…

To the Edge

I love a good bodyguard novel. There’s something about all that forced togetherness that just racks up sexual tension. To The Edge is a bodyguard novel that begins very slowly, but picks up about the middle of the story and ended as a better than average read. Jillian Kincaid’s family are very prominent in Palm…

Wednesday’s Child

Technically, this book is romantic suspense. There is a complicated, emotional suspense plot, and there is a little bit of romance on the side. While this is not bad, per se, both of these elements need to work together to make a great book. In this case, they’re almost unrelated. Susan Chandler’s husband Richard disappeared…

Crossfire by B.J. Daniels

B.J. Daniels’s Crossfire is an effective action/suspense story about a SWAT team’s attempts to defuse a hostage situation. While the premise doesn’t allow for much romance, it’s still a good read and one of the best books in the Code Red continuity series so far. Five years ago, Anna Carson was engaged to police officer…

Southern Exposure

Well, gee, here we go with another average book, made slightly less so by a cartoonish villain, a really precious cute-meet, and a truly Unfortunate Puppy Faux Paws that had me berating the hero for his idiocy. As far as cute-meets go, this is one of the cutest – and that is not a compliment….

On The Scent by M.J. Rodgers

On the Scent is a thoroughly original and wonderfully different romantic mystery. It features M.J. Rodgers’s trademark intelligent characters and creative touches. Most of all, it’s just a lot of fun. Diann Torrey is the head chemist for the American perfume company Man to Woman. While in Paris for the International Fragrance Fraternity’s annual symposium,…

Dare Me

If one were to describe this romantic suspense anthology in five words, I would vote for “high-adrenaline sex and vigilantism.” In all three of these stories, the heroes are hot, sexy guys who break the rules – sorry, make their own rules – to achieve their ends. They take their heroines for quite a ride,…

One Way Out by Michelle Albert

One Way Out is an enjoyable and suspenseful read centered around a unique subject and featuring interesting characters. That unusual subject matter may be a bit on the dry side for some, but those who like scientific forays with their romance will likely appreciate the author’s efforts. Cassie Ashton never intended to quit college and…

Killer Curves

It looks like the editors in romance novel land have taken notice of the popularity of NASCAR, and it’s about time I say. It’s only February and already this year, I’ve read three romances with ties to NASCAR: Pamela Britton’s Dangerous Curves, Janet Evanovich’s Metro Girl, and now Roxanne St. Claire’s Killer Curves. Killer Curves…
