Rare Vigilance

M.A. Grant has been on my radar for a while, but I haven’t yet managed to get around to reading any of her books, so when I saw she was starting a new series, it seemed the perfect time to jump in.  Rare Vigilance is book one in her Whitethorn Agency trilogy and the well-paced, wonderfully balanc ...

Present Danger

Present Danger includes a reunion romance, but the love story takes a definite back seat to the intriguing mystery the characters need to unravel. As the first book in the Rocky Mountain Courage series, the author strives to introduce a large cast of characters spread across an expansive geographic ...

Cold & Deadly

Narrated by Eric G. Dove Cold & Deadly is the first book in the spin off from Toni Anderson’s long-running Cold Justice series, Cold Justice: Crossfire, and it features characters who work as negotiators for the FBI’s Crisis Negotiation Unit, which conducts and manages on-scene negotiatio ...

Witness Protection Unraveled

In the Love Inspired Suspense line, balancing the romance, suspense and spiritual elements in a relatively short book must be tough for an author. In Witness Protection Unraveled, Maggie K. Black shows us how that balance can be achieved. This novel is the third in the author’s Protected Identitie ...

Not Dead Yet

For some reason, I’ve been gravitating towards paranormal romances lately, most often ones featuring characters involved in law enforcement, which was the immediate appeal of Jenn Burke’s Not Dead Yet.  It’s the first in a new series in which one of the protagonists is, as the title suggests, ...

Devoted to Pleasure

Shayla Black opens up her new series about bodyguards and the women they love with her hot new contemporary romance, Devoted to Pleasure. Professional body guard, ex-soldier and all around nice dude Cutter Bryant is desperately protective of his quasi-adopted sister, Brea Bell, who has been impre ...

The View from Rainshadow Bay

The View from Rainshadow Bay, the first in Coleen Coble’s new Lavender Tides series, is set in the fictional bay-side community of Lavender Tides, Washington State. While Ms. Coble is a well-known, prolific writer of romantic suspense within the Christian community, I haven’t read her before, an ...

A Change of Heart

A Change of Heart is my second Sonali Dev novel;  I enjoyed The Bollywood Bride, and had high hopes for this one.  Unfortunately, the misleading categorization (women’s fiction) and my assumption that like its predecessor (which is linked to this story), it was a romance, left me confused about ...

Bad Judgment

Bad Judgment is a charged and adrenaline-packed story and is Sidney Bell’s début male/male romantic suspense novel. Embry Ford quietly lives under the radar, working as a personal assistant. He is young but suave, super intelligent, good looking and brusque. He works for—and is bedding—a ...

Twilight at Blueberry Barrens

The latest in Colleen Coble's Sunset Cove series, Twilight at Blueberry Barrens suffers from some of the same flaws as one of the earlier installments I read. There's just too much going on in this book and it's not tied together very well.  Overall, that's a shame because there really are some int ...
