Find a spot under a tree or spread out a blanket and enjoy the cool weather
while you read some new romantic suspense. Lots of great stories to choose from
TRAILS, book 3 in Sharon
Searchers series, is the conclusion to the trilogy featuring three sisters
looking for the truth about their pasts. Holly Slade has discovered that her
biological father was likely a serial killer known as "The Hunter," and that her
mother gave up Holly to save her life. But The Hunter was never caught—and
Holly's mother simply vanished. Holly leaves home to uncover the truth, leaving
behind Bud Tate, family friend, ranch foreman, and the man Holly has secretly
loved for years. Holly hasn’t been gone long when the danger leads Bud to
follow her in order to protect woman he has secretly loved for years. This book
was a great conclusion to an exciting series. Since Bud and Holly have known
each other for years, the romantic element is fairly light. The strength of the
story is the suspense and danger that builds as Holly conducts her investigation.
I’ve just started reading Christy
Chance Rescue series (I’m on book 2) and I must say I am intrigued. The writing
is strong, the characters are complex and wounded (not to mention hot and
beautiful) and the danger is palpable. Since I am the type of person who has to
read a series in order, it may take me a little time to get to SWEET REVENGE, book 8 in
the series, but I can’t wait to get there. In this book, Jamie Kendrick is
looking for help from Last Chance Rescue as a way to get revenge against
Stanford Reddington, a monster protected by money and power. It’s up to Dylan
Savage to train the lovely Jamie while thwarting her revenge plot at all costs.
The passion that explodes between them complicates everything.
I’m a big fan of Jaci
series so I’m eager to read her new romantic suspense, THE HEART OF A KILLER.
Dante Renaldi, home after twelve years of active duty, finds himself embroiled
in murder—corpses bearing the brutal trademark he’s seen only once before—on the
worst night of his life. The last time Detective Anna Pallino saw Dante Renaldi,
they were in love. Now, he’s part of the connection to a string of fresh
homicides and a horrible assault that Anna only survived thanks to him. Anna
wants to trust Dante but is the man she owes her life to the very same one who
wants her dead?
Keep an eye out for my review of IF YOU HEAR HER, the first
book in the Ash trilogy from Shiloh
Riddle hears a terrified scream in the woods behind her house. But with no
evidence that a woman is in danger, the local law officers in small-town Ash,
Kentucky, dismiss her claim. Ezra King, on leave from the state police is
immediately drawn to Lena. The two of them will work together to uncover the
danger Lena knows is out there.
Also be on the lookout for my review of BLOOD AND FIRE by Shannon
latest book featuring the McCloud brothers. This book features Bruno Ranieri,
Kevin’s adopted brother who we met in Fade to Midnight. Just like the McCloud
brothers, Bruno has a dangerous past to contend with - one that's about to come
crashing back into his life. When exotically beautiful Lily Parr sashays into
his all-night restaurant, claiming to be on the run from mysterious assassins,
Bruno isn’t sure what to think, especially when Lily implies that Bruno is
involved. But the violence that accompanies her arrival is no illusion. Nor is
the blisteringly hot, completely inconvenient desire that explodes between them.
IN CLOSE, the
latest book in Brenda
Novak’s thrilling Bulletproof series, features Claire O'Toole whose mother,
Alana, went missing fifteen years ago. Then, last year, Claire's husband, David,
died in a freak accident—after launching his own investigation into Alana's
disappearance. Is Alana dead? Or did she simply abandon her husband and
daughters? Claire is determined to find out—and her former boyfriend, Isaac
Morgan, wants to help. Although their relationship didn't end well, he still has
feelings for her. And yet it isn't until he starts to suspect David's death
wasn't an accident that he's drawn back into her life.

totally undisciplined dog. When Paige's work in plant genetics becomes the
target of criminals and she’s abducted, Max springs into action. Though still
terribly wounded he will stop at nothing to save the woman he loves.
