I always enjoy reading Lori Foster! There’s something so very charming and captivating about her heroes and heroines, interesting plots and the crossover/spin off series are always my favorite.

UnderPressure-BodyArmor#1-LoriFoster

Her latest series, “Body Armor” and I’m late getting to this series, is just as absorbing and delightful as her other stories. First in the series, “Under Pressure” has ex-MMA fighter Leese Phelps fighting to save his heart. After a rough past, he has managed to get to a point of respectability and make a good life as a bodyguard with Body Armor. And it looks like nothing can protect him from the sassy and on the run Catalina Nicholson.

With secrets that threaten to kill her, Catalina runs right into Leese as he saves her from being kidnapped. Never mind that Body Armor was hired to keep her safe, but as the truth comes out, it looks like Leese is going to keep Cat under lock and key literally and with proximity those sparks of attraction seem to ignite Leese and Cat.

I’ve always loved the way Lori Foster makes sure all bases are covered in her romances, be it supporting characters, closing loops and paying attention to details. I loved how she brings in the characters from her previous series and I thoroughly enjoy reading about them. A definite good read for me.

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.

You want a dark and exciting romantic suspense read, then Cynthia Eden is the go-to author. And it’s just not plain horrific evil; her villains are super smart, twisted and a pro at mind games, making her books one of the best thrillers to read.

Her latest Killer Instinct series starts off with the prequel “The Gathering Dusk” and this should be read before continuing with “After The Dark”, to follow Samantha Dark and Blake Gamble, as they take on evil in plain sight and very closely attached to Samantha Dark.

“After The Dark” starts off with Blake reuniting with Samantha who was and is once touted as one of the best profilers. Yet her FBI career goes down south when her ex-lover and best friend turns out to be the killer. A killer she may have let go. But now someone is hunting Samantha in her small quite town and Blake wants Samantha to help catch the killer and also protect her at the same time.

I love when thrillers are just not gory and violent, but have a scintillating mind game in play. Cynthia Eden is exemplary in that field and I just love her characters. She gives equal depth and layers to the good as well as the bad, to make her stories so very brilliant. And Samantha Dark and Blake Gamble make one strong couple as they battle for their lives against a psychopath who knows Samantha to the very bones of her being.

“After The Dark” should be read to enjoy the brilliance of the plot, the characters that will become one of our favorites and the narration that is tight and filled with adrenaline.

I have to blame this hot and kind cowboy for enjoying his story so much. Logan McCord’s future may have gone down the clown’s ass, but it only paved the way to his real life partner Reese Stephens. A one-night stand to drown their sorrows leaves them longing for more, but fate says it’s time for a separation.

Yet destiny brings Reese back into Logan’s life and his hometown. But with Reese also comes a past that has tainted her whole life forcing her to move from one place to another. The attraction between Logan and Reese gives her a hope for laying down roots, yet her past and Logan’s ex seem to make it a bit difficult for them.

I think this is by far one of Delores’s best book I’ve read. Granted I love all her books, but “Blame It On The Cowboy” for the extra pizzazz, extra charisma and extra chemistry that had me falling in love with Logan and Reese. Reese is one heck of a courageous girl, smiling in the face of adversity, always putting others ahead of her, always with a helping hand and a kind heart. And Logan is the quintessential cowboy with a heart of gold, protecting his loved ones and dealing with his meddling siblings.

The entire story was fast paced, Reese’s best friend is a riot, intense passion and witty dialogues are a treasure to enjoy, and the chemistry between Logan and Reese is fabulous considering they are fictional characters and all that credit goes to Delores Fossen as she gives us another entertaining love story.

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.

The Appaloosa Pass Ranch Series continues to captivate, as the law enforcement seems to find love amidst the numerous secrets and the elusive Midnight Strangler that seems to bring all these characters together.

SixGunShowdown-AppaloosaPassRanch-DeloresFossen-July2016

Deputy Sheriff Jax Crockett saw his ex-wife Paige buried a year ago, yet the message on his answering machine defies all odds. Faking her own death was the only way Paige knew to keep her son and the love of her life alive. Yet now, her position has been compromised and as she runs back to Appaloosa Ranch with a killer on her heels, only brings more danger to her family.

Utter shock and anger is what keeps Jax on guard even has his desire for Paige resurfaces. A desire and love that never died and now he will move heaven and earth to keep his wife and son safe from the killer, in the “Six Gun Showdown”.

This series has been very interesting and Delores Fossen sure pays attention in keeping all the characters in line and the plot steady and interesting. With secrets intertwining her characters, each story is narration with enough suspense, danger and romance to keep it interesting.
