It’s always a pleasure reading Nora Roberts and I will honestly admit that I can be totally biased where she is concerned. And in my opinion, no reviews can do justice to her stories.

MindOverMatter-NoraRoberts-July2017

“Mind Over Matter” is a republish and it is very nice visiting her characters, David Brady and A.J. Fields, total opposites that destiny seems to bring them together. David’s search for a psychic to star in his paranormal documentary brings him to A.J. Fields, an agent. As they pit against each other during the interviews and the filming, sparks flare and so does love.

Nora Roberts is a master at weaving stories of intrigue and passion. Her flair of writing needs to be read to enjoy her art and every time I read an intimate scene in her books, it is a rhythm of passion and a lyric of love. I loved Aurora Fields as she tries to fend the attraction for David, and David himself is a worthy character of her love. Add in a couple of surprises and “Mind Over Matter” is a pleasure read of suspense, love and family.

The Lawmen of Silver Creek Ranch will rally together to protect their own and keep the evil out of their jurisdiction. And here’s another of Delores Fossen’s series as her simmering lawmen stand guard under the big Texas sky. From one series to another she creates romance filled with danger and suspense, captivating and spell binding stories of love, support and families.

Lucas-SilvercreekLawmen#12

Lucas Ryland has a lot of questions for his son’s mother. He may have saved Hailey Darrow from an accident, but her being in coma is not what he had expected, nor the fact that she’s missing from the hospital and he’s her only hope of protection. With the entire Ryland clan and the extended family in protection mode, Lucas needs to find answers fast to keep Hailey alive and dodge the bullets to even think of a future with her.

As a great computer hacker, Hailey Darrow had a good life and Lucas was her shining moment. But as conspiracies and betrayals come to light, she goes under protection but her identity is compromised. Now fighting for her life and come to terms that she had delivered a baby boy when she was in coma is hard to comprehend and the fire of passion still burns between her and Lucas.

As bullets fly, secrets come to light and family betrayals are exposed, Lucas and Hailey have to fight with their very breath to keep their son alive and not let Hailey sacrifice herself to keep her loved ones alive. With pages of action, doses of passion and family dynamics, “Lucas” is a fast paced read of suspense and tail spinning action that Delores Fossen is known for and delivers yet another thrilling ride.

I love Delores Fossen and her simmering lawmen guarding under the big Texas sky. From one series to another she creates romance filled with danger and suspense, captivating and spell binding stories of love, support and families.

LoneWolfLawman-AppaloosaPassRanch1-DeloresFossen

The Appaloosa Pass Ranch Series kicks off with the “Lone Wolf Lawman”, as the Texas Ranger Weston Cade is drawn into the web of a serial killer. His search lands him in the home of his one night love Addie Crockett, and who’s DNA matches the serial killer.

Adopted and raised with love and a line of brothers who adore her, Addie Crockett lands in the crossfire of the killer who happens to be her father. Yet as the danger and bullets fly in galore, it looks like there is more than one killer and secrets that unravel may be the death of the good people. And Addie definitely is not going to risk her unborn child.

Interesting story, charming characters and a bountiful of suspense and danger, “Lone Wolf Lawman” is a racy start to another of Delores’s fascinating stories.

The saga and the thrill at Sweetwater Ranch continue with the fifth book in the series “The Deputy’s Redemption” by Delores Fossen. The series can be read as stand alones, but reading them in sequence is so much more satisfying.

Deputy Colt McKinnon of Sweetwater Springs comes face to face with a past that turns out to be a battle against danger and saving his family from death. Saving Elise Nichols in the dead of the night from a killer was not on his menu and neither is the attraction and love he had for all these years flare up and consume with a passion, a love dangerous enough to put his family at risk.

TheDeputy'sRedemption-SweetwaterRanch4-Feb2015

Elise Nichols grew up with the McKinnon family, and now fourteen years later returns to Sweetwater Springs as the star witness in Colt’s mother’s trial. Elise is not immune to the attraction and love she had for Colt all those years ago and having him safe her life only strengthens her love for him. But being the star witness with revelations that can tear apart the McKinnon family, and a killer stuck to her back, she has no hope of building on a desire that she may never live to see.

The McKinnon family gets under your skin, and you can’t but help read the series. Delores Fossen keeps the suspense going strong as she weaves a story around each member of the McKinnon family. She does a brilliant job of incorporating sub plots, without losing sight of the primary plot or its key elements. And so true with her writing, Delores doesn’t cut corners creating Colt and Elise, two strong characters, needing each other yet independent, fighting for justice in the face of danger, and courageous enough to accept their feelings in the midst of deathly chaos and follow their hearts.

“The Deputy’s Redemption” is another sizzling story of redemption of love, of forgiveness and acceptance and of a family that supports and protects their own, no matter what. With danger dogging every page, adrenaline coursing through every word, and with love and trust on the line, “The Deputy’s Redemption” is a must read.

“Disarming Detective” is the first in the Lawmen Series by Elizabeth Heiter and of course my first of reading her writing. Again, the first timer sure caught me by surprise.

Detective Logan Greer is in desperate need of having a profiler when a body was discovered in his small town of Oakville, FL; a desperation that brings him face to face with Isabella Cortez, a FBI profiler. Instead of heading to California on a vacation with her friends, she ends up going to Oakville, to help Logan in an unofficial capacity, just because the case comes very close to being the Fishhook Killer that she was pursuing for years.

DisarmingDetective-ElizabethHeiter-Jan2015

With Logan’s gut instinct that there is a serial killer at large, and the death hitting very close to home, he needs all of Isabella’s expertise to catch the killer. Isabella on the other hand wants to bring a closure to her own trauma of her best friend being kidnapped by the killer and wants to bring the evil to rest.

As sparks ignite between the detective and the profiler, the case takes a bizarre turn. With more questions than answers, Logan and Isabella try to keep their attraction at bay. As danger and death dog the town of Oakville, Logan and Isabella succumb to their desires. And as they get closer to the killer, their future may burn to the ground.

“Disarming Detective” is definitely an interesting read. There were a few pages in the middle of the story where I felt it was dragging a tad bit as if the writer was wondering where do I take this story, but then it picks up pace and keeps going.

Elizabeth does a fine job, disarming her readers with Logan and Isabella, and doesn’t disappoint at all.
