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.

“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.

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.

“Midnight Secrets” took the readers on a ride of destruction, betrayal and loss that Isabel Devlaux endured and lived through. As secrets were revealed and her brother comes back from the dead, Lisa Marie Rice takes us into the secret life of Jack Devlaux through her latest release “Midnight Fire”

His tryst with dark shadows reveal layers of betrayal and plans of terrorist acts that threaten the innocent…and one such person of interest is Summer Redding.

Her job takes her to the doorstep of death, as her entire life is destroyed and burned to the ground. Saved by her presumed first crush, Summer and Jack are on the run trying to outwit death and stop a terrorist that would change the course of the world.

Lisa Marie Rice does what she is brilliant at – writing stories of danger and evil, family and friends, support and love; adrenaline pumping and spine chilling rides of some with amazing narration. Each book can be read as a stand alone, with the characters from the previous stories making an appearance, which is such a pleasure. And she makes sure that Jack and Lore burn the midnight fire to its fiery heights.

Lisa Marie Rice’s “Midnight Series” continue to thrill, captivate, and charm readers. The entire team of SEALS is now hitched and it’s wonderful seeing them being a part of the continuing books.

It’s wonderful reconnecting with Lisa Marie Rice and her books. Somewhere along the long stream of books, the Midnight Series has become the witching act. So going back to the handsome, sexy and all alpha protective soldiers was such a sweet reunion.

“Midnight Promises” brings Felicity Ward and Sean Aiden “Metal” O’Brien together under the roof Lauren. Felicity arrives in Portland, OR to surprise Lauren, her virtual “Runner”, and ends up being cut open by a secret past, the minute she lands in Portland. With her life hanging in the balance and her extreme smartness at its peak, she literally falls into the hands of Metal at Lauren’s doorstep.

MidnightPromises-MidnightSeries-LisaMarieRice-Jan2015

The minute Metal holds Felicity in his hands, his protective instincts kick into high gear along with feelings of possessiveness and lust. As he helps Felicity heal at his home, he falls for the Russian beauty, mind, body and soul. Felicity is drawn to Metal and for the first time she lets her guard down and actually opens her heart to love, support and friendship.

With an unknown danger lurking in the shadows, Metal and Felicity try to unravel the history behind her parents’ defection to the US and the reason KGB has targeted her. With the help of the Metal’s security company and their members, they race against time to save the lives of the innocent, and put and end to the evil nuclear threat.

Metal and Felicity are just an adorable couple and are my favorites of the series so far. There is calmness in them even as the chemistry sizzles between them. They have an understanding and trust between them, even as they put their lives at risk to save the innocent. And they have a wealth of love and passion between that would last a lifetime.

Fast paced, compelling and a passionate love story, “Midnight Promises” delivers the punch!
