Lauren Dane writes some pretty interesting romantic suspenses and the Chase Brothers sure set the ball rolling. I don’t get a chance to read as often, but anytime I pick a book of hers, her stories leave me with warm feelings and satisfaction of reading a good romance.

TakingChase-LaurenDane-Jun2018

“Taking Chase” is no exception as Sheriff Shane Chase tries to figure out the mystery behind the new resident of Petal, Georgia, Cassie Gambol. Cassie has a lot to hide and a tenacious desire to start a new life in the little town of warm residents and friendly people. Then again amidst the mystery of her past, is the the temptation of the Sheriff himself. As they try to work on a relationship dancing around each other, Cassie’s past catches up with her and Shane has a lot to lose as he fights for the love of his life.

The Chase brothers are a sexy bunch  of siblings, raised with morals and ethics as they are bound to protect the loves of their lives as well as the little town of Petal. With humor and great affection, witty dialogues and some sizzling chemistry, Lauren Dane makes “Taking Chase” a reading pleasure.

Kendra Eliot’s “Mercy Kilpatrick” series continues as FBI Agent Mercy Kilpatrick and Police Chief Truman Daly guarding the little town of Eagle’s Nest, Oregon, a town that seems to harbor unexpected crimes and open long buried secrets.

AMercifulSilence-MercyKilpatrick#4-KendraElliot-Oct 2018

“A Merciful Silence” throws Mercy Kilpatrick into the midst of a reprise of gruesome slaughters, two decades ago and now the discovery of bones in a downpour of a storm. As Mercy tries to unravel the mystery surrounding this murder, Truman is caught in the vice of the killer. And with time against them, Mercy has to find the killer before she loses Truman and Truman’s only goal is to get to Mercy at any cost.

“A Merciful Silence” is another brilliant fiction as Kendra takes another step in forging Mercy’s place in the little town. This story also takes Mercy and Truman’s relationship to another level, as they battle the very possibility of not surviving a killer’s madness.

Still paying  great attention to the dynamics of the Kilpatrick family, Kendra Elliot weaves another intense story of family loyalties, loss and pain, hope and faith. And I’ve always loved her prowess of developing a personal relationship, layer by layer, book by book…my favorite attribute of hers.

Book three of Texas Trilogy series, “Beyond Control” is even more captivating to read! Big Texas skies, a lone rancher and a tenacious redhead with a daughter is the premise for an interesting read as danger and passion go “Beyond Control”.

BeyondControl-TexasTrilogy#3

The first meeting between Josh Cain and Victoria Bradford pretty much lays the foundation for a great read as Kat Martin weaves in a love story of pain and loss, hope and love.

A worthy read indeed from Kat Martin!

Any book of Susan Stoker’s is worth a read. Be it the Deltas, Firemen, Rangers, Ace Security and now the Mercenaries. Her last book in the Ace Security series is the start of the Mountain Mercenaries Series, with Gray Rogers “Defending Allye” till his last breath.

DefendingAllye-MountainMercenaries#1-Aug2018

Kidnapped by a human trafficker, Allye never thought she would be rescued, let alone by a mercenary. The entire rescue op of Allye is the highlight of “Defending Allye”, laying the foundation for Allye’s and Gray’s relationship, as they get to know each other even as they are trying to defy death. Readers will fall in love with Allye and Gray, a couple made for each other!

There’s no doubt that Susan Stoker’s stories are as addictive as fine wine as is her mastery of writing captivating and emotional love stories. From her Badge Of Honor Series, Delta Force Heroes Series to Seal Of Protection Series and now to Ace Security series, I’ve literally enjoyed every single one of her books. Protecting Caroline, Protecting Fiona and Protecting Alabama are my top favorites of her books that I’ve visited innumerable times…chicken soup for the soul!!!

“Recipe For Disaster” is the perfect blend of romance, wit, humor and charisma. As Tracy Solheim pits the gritty and delicious Secret Service Agent Griffin Kellar against the feisty and sweet Pastry Chef, Marin Chevalier working at the White House and also a very close friend to the First Family.

RecipeForDisaster-MenOfSecretService#1-TracySolheim-Aug2018

Even as they fight their attraction for each other, Marin is thrown into the crosshairs of a counterfeit ring and becomes a suspect, something that doesn’t agree with the Griffin. As they maneuver of the many twists of their romance, Marin and Griffin sure create enough drama to keep the White House and the readers pretty entertained!

Another entertaining romance from Tracy Solheim!
