Hi. It’s sweltering here in the lovely (and hot!) state of Texas. Past about
9:00 a.m. the best thing to do is stay inside with a good book (just skip work,
they won’t mind). Luckily for us, July is a great month for Romantic Suspense.
Stay cool, and happy reading!
I got a sneak peek at several of this month’s new releases. SAVOR THE DANGER, the
third book Lori Foster’s series Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor, continues the
stories of Alani Rivers and Jackson Savor. Alani wakes up in Jackson’s bed
after a passionate night only to discover that Jackson remembers nothing of
their night together. The team quickly realizes that Jackson was drugged, and
both he and Alani and are in danger until the find and neutralize the threat.
The romantic relationship is really at the heart of this story, and I
thoroughly enjoyed watching Alani and Jackson figure out what they mean to each
Brenda Novak was inspired to write INSIDE after watching the
television series Prison Break. Virgil Skinner served fourteen years for a
murder he didn't commit, to survive he joined a prison gang. Now free after
having been exonerated, he and his family are threatened by the gang he is
trying to leave behind. To protect his family, he agrees to infiltrate another
gang for The California Department of Corrections. Chief Deputy Warden Peyton
Adams discovers his really identity and finds herself attracted to the man
behind the ex-con image. I wasn’t sure a romance set in a prison would work
but it does. The characters are strong, the relationship makes sense, and the
threats are very really.
Adrienne Giordano’s debut novel, MAN LAW, is a treat for
fans of romantic suspense. For some reason, I’m not a big fan of the title but
it fits with Vic Andrew’s self-defined “man laws” (like never mess with your
best friend's sister) which he violates on a regular basis. Vic finds himself
attracted to Gina Delgado, a young widow with three kids and the sister of his
best friend. There occasional attempts at casual sex fail miserably because
there is nothing casual about how they feel. When one of Vic’s assignments
leads to revenge, Gina and her children are threatened. They must confront the
danger and how they really feel about each other. I liked a lot about this
book. The characters were engaging, the threats kept me jumping, and the
romance made my toes tingle. I look forward to more in books in the Private
AND BURN, the first book in Alexis Grant’s The Men of Delta Force
series, weapons expert Mia runs into Delta Forces’ Ryan Mason, the only man
she’s ever loved, at a conference. When she and Ryan chose their careers over a
relationship together, she thought their goodbye was for forever. Now it’s his
job to protect Mia and her research from the terrorists who want to use her
research as a weapon.
PLEASURE, the latest book in Lora Leigh’s erotic Bound Hearts series, Abram
Mustafa faces the test of his life and his heart when his terrorist father
kidnaps Paige Galbraithe, the one woman who has always been able to touch
Abram’s soul. With Paige’s life now in danger, Abram knows that his plans for
escape from the only home he has ever known have suddenly become more
imperative than ever.
REMORSE, the latest installment of Cindy
Gerard’s Black Ops series, Luke “Doc Holliday” Colter is taking some R&R,
making his way across the Peruvian Andes via rail, when an attack on the moving
train turns out be an attempt to kidnap supermodel Valentina. Luke whisks
Valentina off the train in a daring escape but the two of them become the
targets of a relentless manhunt. It’s up to Luke to keep her safe as they
figure out who is after her and why.

begin meeting similar fates- unfortunate “accidents.” Conflicted by her
growing feelings for Danner Lockwood (the investigating detective), Coby races
to unravel a mystery buried in the past before the killer strikes again.
MERCILESS, by Diana Palmer, features handsome, aloof, and
dedicated bachelor FBI agent Jon Blackhawk and his efficient and reliable

she comes to his aid—fueling the spark that is growing between them. As the

In THE FIFTH
KINGDOM by Caridad Pineiro, Dr. Deanna Vasquez hasn’t spoken

family in her quest to find the lost tomb of Montezuma. When CIA agent Bill
Santana shows up in her classroom with the news that her mother has been
abducted by terrorists, Deanna has to help in any way she can. In an effort to
make contact with the terrorist cell, Bill accompanies Deanna to Mexico posing

In JUSTICE by Karen Robards, feisty criminal attorney Jessica Ford
has done her best to comply with the orders of the Secret Service’s unofficial
witness protection program ever since she became the lone witness to the First
Lady’s murder. Unfortunately, winning her first high-profile case for a
prestigious Washington, D.C., law firm, subsequently landing her face all over
the news, is not exactly “keeping a low profile.” Or so says hunky Secret
Service agent Mark Ryan, whose newest assignment is keeping her safe at all
costs. It just so happens he’s also her ex-boyfriend.
CONSEQUENCES, the third book in the Fatal series by Marie
Force, brings back Lieutenant Sam Holland and Senator Nick Cappuano. A

Lightfeather, a senator and close friend of Nick's. While Sam investigates,
