Happy 2012! There are some thrilling reads in romantic suspense to start your
year off right. Happy reading!
I had the chance to review SWEET REWARD, the ninth
and final book in Christy Reece’s exceptional A Last Chance Rescue series. I
thought the story of Jared and Mia’s attempt to stop a baby kidnapping ring
provided a satisfying conclusion to the series. It captured all the elements
that make this series standout- strong, beautiful, and wounded men and women, a
palpable threat, and non-stop action.
I really like Lisa Marie Rice’s writing style and look forward to reading
the latest novella, HOT
SECRETS. Jack Prescott waited twelve years for his wife, Caroline. And
then, the moment he found her again, he almost lost her. When a violent monster
of a man breaks into Caroline’s bookstore on Christmas Eve, Jack races to her
side because without her, life isn’t worth living.
AND LOADED, book 2 in Alexis Grant’s Men of Delta Force series, DEA agent Sage
Wagner will do whatever it takes to bring down Miami’s biggest drug lord—even
go undercover and become his mistress. But her bold plan hits a snag when Delta
Force shows up in the form of Captain Anthony Davis. This ultra-elite warrior
could blow Sage’s cover with a kiss—and beat her at her own game.
