ONE KISS MORE (U.S. Marshals #2) by Mandy Baxter

Emma Ruiz knows her father is innocent. But that doesn’t help her convince the law—not even smoking hot U.S. Marshal Landon McCabe. When McCabe bangs on her door demanding information about how her cancer-stricken father escaped from federal prison, she’ll have to distract him somehow—it may as well be with a stolen kiss.

RUNNING BLIND (One-Eyed Jack #3) by Cindy Gerard

Revenge. The One-Eyed Jacks have to watch their six while a sniper takes aim at three of them and nearly sends Eva to an early grave. While the team scrambles to find the sniper, another more lethal plan is in motion. A military research and development facility under siege. The only thing standing between the Russians and world domination are a black ops operative and a bombshell computer geek. They never meant to fall in love. However, intense situations tend to reveal courage and put life into perspective.

IN HIS KEEPING (Slow Burn #2) by Maya Banks

Arial knows the rules that keep her safe. She's been following them since she was a little girl: Do not tell. Do not show. But in a moment of terror, facing an attacker intent on taking more than just her life, Ari has no choice but to unleash the psychic powers she's been hiding since childhood. Now, with her abilities revealed, a bigger threat looms—something that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her parents and her secretive upbringing. But this isn't a fight she can face on her own. As the head of Devereaux Security, Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. But when he takes on a new client—a beautiful young woman with an extraordinary gift—Beau isn't prepared for the extent of his attraction to her. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he'll do anything at all to protect Ari. No matter what it costs him personally. Even his heart and soul.

KALEIDOSCOPE by Kristen Ashley

I read my first Kristen Ashley book earlier this year. It was a strange reading experience. I’m not normally one for the big, brawny alpha heroes, but something about her writing is really compelling, and I kept turning those pages, unable to put the book down. I joked that there was actual crack-cocaine woven into the pages and I had to keep going back to get my fix. So when this book was up for review, I jumped at it.

RIDING STEELE series by Opal Carew

Being kidnapped by bikers is a harrowing experience, but for some reason, Laurie doesn’t feel as terrified as she should. The leader’s steely eyes soften when he looks at her, and the others in his gang clearly know she’s hands off. But does that include Steele's hands? Her brain resists him, but her body insists she wants those big hands all over her.

Or maybe I just need...her.

PUSHING THE LIMIT (Alpha Ops #3) By Emmy Curtis

I love a well researched, smart book. Emmy Curtis clearly has her research well in hand for this series. She takes us on military missions filled with so much detail, you can almost feel the sandy grit in your eyes as you read. The third book in her Alpha Ops series hits all of the high notes you need for an engaging military themed romantic suspense.
Forbidden Ground

Together, Tess and Gabe work to unlock their painful memories to save a child and heal their damaged souls.

Author Exclusive: Allison Brennan talks with Carla Neggers

One of the fun things about being an author is the friendships formed with other writers. Take Carla Neggers and Allison Brennan, for example. The two met years ago at a writers’ conference and have been friends ever since. They’re both prolific, award-winning, New York Times bestselling authors of romantic suspense/romantic thrillers featuring FBI agents as lead characters, write two different series and share a friendship with Mariah Stewart. But that’s where the similarities end. Carla has two grown children and two grandchildren; Allison is still raising her five offspring. Carla lives in Vermont; Allison, in California. Carla has a journalistic background; Allison served as a legislative consultant for the California State Assembly before launching her author career. But both enjoy sharing the challenges—and the fun—of being an author and look forward to chatting over… Continue

SINS AND NEEDLES by Karina Halle

To be honest I was really hesitant about picking up this book, because I don’t usually like con stories.  I hate people trying to cheat others out of their hard earned money, and take things the easy way.  There are of course exceptions to this for me:  
  • The reason for the con is to defraud a defrauder, someone who “deserves” it in some way.
 
  • The con is to serve up some much deserved revenge.
  I guess I’m not a turn-the-other-cheek sort of girl, well in fiction anyways.  If someone’s got it coming I relish the payback! Much of Ellie’s conning (in the past) fell under one of those categories, so I could excuse it.  But that’s not to say I liked Ellie much at first.  For a good forty-five percent of… Continue

An Interview with Author Shiloh Walker PLUS Giveaway!


Larissa Ione, EMT and meteorologist, is author of the New York Times bestselling Demonica series, and is half of the Sydney Croft writing duo. Larissa first met Shiloh Walker online. Then they met in person, possibly in a bar, which they won’t confirm or deny. They hit it off right away and enjoy their friendship—as long as they avoid talking about the medical field, where they both worked and have very definite and sometimes different opinions about the players in the profession. But that’s okay, because there’s plenty of other stuff to talk about, including a love of things spooky, things paranormal, and all things books—the edgier the better. Larissa’s latest book, Azagoth, is a June release. Larissa: Okay, so in Deeper Than Need Trinity jumps from the proverbial frying pan into the… Continue

Loving on the Edge: My Passion for Romantic Suspense

I don’t live on the edge doing truly scary things, the kind of things equated with living on the edge. I do not skydive or snowboard. I don’t climb rock walls or drive race cars. Living on the edge for me is taking on a new writing challenge or speaking in public. What exhilarates me is pretty simple, as simple as experiencing a dramatic thunderstorm from my back porch, or working with a homeless cat to get it accustomed to me and therefore adoptable by a compassionate person. But when it comes to my characters it’s a different story. I put them into dangerous situations, ones that could end their lives. Being kidnapped, shot at, and knocked unconscious is just another day in the lives of heroes and heroines in my romantic suspense novels. But… Continue

Not Your Mother’s Romantic Suspense

Where did the romantic suspense market go? That’s a question I get a lot from readers. There was a time when it seemed like every contemporary romance novel was a romantic suspense story. But recently? Not so much. I have a theory about it (ask anyone who knows me: I have theories about everything). This theory revolves around a number of the originating authors of the romantic suspense form retiring or reducing their writing schedules in the early 2000’s.  It was just about time for a new crop of suspense writers to come along and refresh the pool when three things happened simultaneously: First, a wave of mega-hit paranormal books had swept the marketplace and movie theaters. New writers’ imaginations were galvanized by images of magic, vampires, and dystopian nightmares. Second, the Great Recession hit.… Continue

Winners Announced!! – Sally Eggert, author of In the Dark ponders Ethics vs. Loyalty + #Giveaway

In my novel In the Dark, the main character, Josie, thinks she knows what matters most to her until one terrible night comes along and changes everything. Before then, she thought that love and loyalty would always trump everything else, and that she would always know who she could count on. After that night, she finds herself unable to trust anyone for a long time. She feels let down and betrayed by someone she once loved, and in the absence of the sense of emotional security she has lost, she falls back on a rigid set of streetwise rules, and a strong sense of self-preservation. When someone she is beginning to warm to—Johnny—turns out to be on the wrong side of the law, she knows what she has to do, as little as she… Continue
