Romantic Suspense

Third Choice

First off, be forewarned, this is not a "romance" novel, if such is defined as a story with the primary focus on the romantic relationship. Margot Dalton is an established contemporary romance writer who has taken the leap from romance to romantic suspense, and actually that categorization is a bit ...

Absolute Trouble

New Orleans and the Cajun country of Louisiana, are the background for Michelle Jerott's Golden Heart Award-winning book, Absolute Trouble, and a wonderful book it is.

Heart of Fire

Take a pretty, sexually-repressed archaeologist, and a tall, blue-eyed, sexually-charged river guide, add a rare red diamond, a lost civilization, a treasure map, and hot sex in the cool rain, and well, things are looking really good! Jillian Sherwood is an archaeologist. Her fat ...
