The Dangerous Billionaire

The dedication at the beginning of Jackie Ashenden's new Tate Brothers series starter, The Dangerous Billionaire reads: To the person who picked this up and thought: "Billionaire Navy SEAL? HELL YEAH." You're my people. Personally, I love a good billionaire romance, and novels with military heroes ...

Once a SEAL

Often romances that feature Navy SEAL heroes tend to be a bit over the top. If you are willing to suspend disbelief, these books can be a lot of fun, filled with action and danger and steamy romance. Once a SEAL is…not that book. Rather, it provides a window into what I can only imagine is the tru ...

On Lavender Lane

Public humiliation must be very difficult to deal with, but celebrity chef Madeline Durand handles it with aplomb when a video of her celebrity chef husband and a married heiress having sex goes viral while Maddie is giving a cooking demonstration in Omaha. That’s not to say Maddie isn’t devasta ...

The Homecoming

The Homecoming is my type of romantic suspense. While there is a mystery, it never dominates the story; the focus is almost completely on the hero and heroine and their relationship. I enjoyed this one from beginning to end. Kara Conway and Sax Douchett knew each other growing up in Shelter Bay. ...

Viking Unchained

I’ve read time travel stories where it’s evident that the author did her research. Everything is laid out with scrupulous attention to detail and all the aspects of the story are as accurate as they can be. Viking Unchained is not that kind of story. The time travel aspects are loose, not logica ...

Freefall

Freefall is the first book in JoAnn Ross’s High Risk series, which features former military men as its heroes. I enjoy suspense and this book, while not exceptional, was enjoyable enough that I plan to follow the series. Swann Island is home to Swansea, a South Carolina plantation house whi ...

Rough and Ready

Sandra Hill’s time traveling Vikings are back for another trip. Rough and Ready has a lot of farcial episodes and plenty of ultra-hot sex, but it lacks the touch of poignancy that made the early books in this series something special. Torolf Magnusson, son of Magnus, the Very Virile Viking, ...

The Protector

The Protector is Gennita Low's third book, and the first I've read. My colleagues didn't respond too well to her previous releases, so I wasn't really sure what to expect. As it turned out, this was a decent read, but it's one that didn't entirely work for me. After a weeklong mission in a So ...

Dangerous Illusion

Dangerous Illusions has just about everything a good romantic suspense novel should: complex characters, plenty of passion, a lot of emotion, taut action sequences, manipulation, betrayals, sustained tension and a strong heroine. Unfortunately, the execution often gets in the way of the story. It's ...

The Defiant Hero

If, like me, you’ve got a weakness for a man in uniform, Suzanne Brockmann’s latest single-title release The Defiant Hero should hit the mark for you. It’s chock-full of all the things she does so well: intricately woven multiple plotlines, ripping dialogue, intrigue, adventure, and three (cou ...
