It's Readers & 'ritas month! I
hope you are joining us November 11-13 in Allen, Texas for a chance to visit
with authors and other rabid fans of popular fiction. Some of your favorite
romantic suspense authors will be there or have donated items for the raffle
and silent auction, including some with books out this month.
Shannon K. Butcher has sent a fun mix of her paranormal and
romantic suspense series to give away. You'll have plenty to read in
anticipation of the publication of book 2 in the Edge series, RAZOR'S EDGE.
Roxanne "Razor" Haught, an expert in stealth security for corporate espionage
cases, is all about setting traps for the bad guys. But suddenly she is the
target. Tanner O'Connell has no intentions of leaving Razor's side. Despite
her objections to having a "babysitter," his orders as the newest member of the
Edge are to watch her back. Of course he can't help watching a lot more than
Lucy Monroe sent a box full of goodies to giveaway to
celebrate the re-release of HEATSEEKER, a book featuring Atrati (a mercenary organization of
black operatives who specialize in doing what no one else can). Kaden Marks is
sent to rescue a fellow operative whose cover is blown. Unfortunately for him,
the beautiful and stubborn Rachel Gannon isn't interested in being rescued.
Rachel must convince Kaden to help her bring down the enemy's entire
organization—without risking the life of the man she's come to love.
Kat Martin's Raines of Wind Canyon 1-3 will be in the raffle so if
you are there and win, you are all set to read book 4, AGAINST THE STORM. Trace
Rawlins, a former army ranger turned private investigator, takes Maggie
O'Connell's case, even though he suspects she's trouble. Trace can sense that
something is wrong—Maggie isn't telling him everything. If these menacing
calls and messages are real, why won't the police help her? And if they aren't
real, what is she
I'm a big fan of Adrienne Giordano's Private
Protectors series. Keep an eye out for my review of RISKING TRUST (book 3), a
prequel that brings us the story of Michael Taylor and Roxann Thorgesson. When
we met them as a happily married couple in MAN LAWS I was hoping we
would get their story and here it is. After her father suffers a fatal heart
attack, Roxann must take over as publisher of Chicago's second-largest
newspaper. Then her ex-boyfriend Michael, CEO of his own security company,
shows up needing a favor. The last thing Roxann needs is Michael around causing
trouble—and potential heartbreak—but he's involved in a scandalous
story she can't pass up.
In SHE CAN
RUN, by Melinda Leigh, Elizabeth Baker uncovered a dangerous
secret about her politician husband—a secret that nearly got her killed.
Now she and her children are running for their lives. When Beth is hired as the
caretaker of a remote Pennsylvania estate, she dares to hope she has found a
safety. But when her new boss dies suddenly and his nephew inherits the estate,
Beth is faced with outwitting a former homicide detective who is very smart,
very suspicious—and very attractive.
TO TRUST, by Lynne Connolly, socialite Bellina Mazzanti Forde
was the ultimate party girl—until she disappeared with Byron Brantley
five years ago. Determined to find his brother, Jonathan Brantley has tracked
Lina to a café in Naples and demands answers. Certain she's hiding something,
Jonathan vows not to let Lina out of his sight until she agrees to help him,
even if it takes all night. Though he doesn't trust her, he can't deny that he
wants her—has always wanted her.
EVIL, by Jami Alden, features Sean Flynn who, after years in prison, has
retreated to a quiet woodland cabin, far away from prying eyes. There, he
believed the past couldn't come back to haunt him . . . until she showed up.
Overcome with guilt, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Krista Slater can't forgive
herself for convicting an innocent man. But when another brutal murder reveals
chilling, new facts about his case, she must turn to Sean for help. She's ready
to face his anger, but the desire in his eyes ignites a need she's never felt
before. Shadowed by danger, Sean and Krista uncover a twisted maze of deception
