There’s something very addictive and seductive about Susan Stoker’s various series of courageous and brave soldiers, their fight for justice and the fierce protectiveness for their loved ones.

ClaimingBailey-AceSecurity#3-SusanStoker-Dec2017

“Claiming Bailey” book three in the Ace Security Series is another exemplary work of Susan Stoker’s creative writing as she brings the nerdy Nathan Anderson in search of elusive Bailey Hampton hiding with her brother from the vicious Inca Boyz gang. Keeping a low profile working as a mechanic, when fate brings her to Nathan, there’s no denying the chemistry, the protective shield and the safe have of Nathan Anderson and his brothers.

“Claiming Bailey” is a courageous and wonderful story of two beautiful people fighting to claim a future together. Nathan is an absolute kind and patient guy with Bailey and her young brother. He may not don the battle fatigues, but his fight for justice with his mad computer skills and equally amazing mind are his battling skills that help him keep Bailey safe.

Susan Stoker is one fine writer that I was glad to have come upon and enjoyed reading her 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!!!

Gosh! I can never get tired of reading Laura Griffin and her “Tracers Series” is one of the best romantic suspense and one of my top favorites.

TouchOfRed-Tracers#12-LaurGriffin-Oct2017

Book #12 of the series, “A Touch Of Red” brings CSI Brooke Porter and Homicide Detective Sean Byrne together as they get involved in a grisly murder investigation. As they get deeper into the investigation, the possibility of a young witness to the crime, takes Brooke deeper into the case than required, becoming a target for the killer. With Sean having deeper feelings for Brooke, the case becomes personal as well as deadly as he tries to protect Brooke.

It’s hard writing a review for a thriller without giving away spoilers. It’s always a pleasure to revisit her amazing characters of this series as they keep making appearances in the various stories. And as the Delphi Center and the Wolfe Security co-exit and crossover, it only adds an element of suspense and danger to this series, making it even more irresistible to avoid and get caught up in the danger and evil surrounding these characters.

Laura Griffin is one amazing writer of thrillers as she maintains a tight plot, a balance of the dark with the light, the humor with the grim and the powerful chemistry and vibes between the main characters.

The final book in the “Blood Brothers” series, “Twisted Truths” brings and end to the deadly and twisted mind of a psychopath doctor hell-bent on creating super soldiers and the beginning of a new life for Denver Jones and the start of a new era for his Blood Brothers, a future as normal as can be with family.

TwistedTruths-BloodBrothers#3-Cover#1-RebeccaZanetti

In desperate need of Denver’s help to find her kidnapped niece, Noni puts an almost BOLO on the internet trying to reach Denver, an act that literally puts her and Denver in the crosshairs of the evil doctor who wants Denver back at any cost. With Noni getting into his dangerous life on the run, Denver has no choice but protect her at any cost, and also bring her niece Talia safe and sound.

With bullets flying, guns blazing, and the “Twisted Truths” of his creation and parentage dogging them, Denver and Noni fight for their life as well as for the families they care about. Even as they dodge the explosions and the bullets, the adrenaline of attraction and lust never seems to be far for Noni and Denver.

Rebecca Zanetti gives a fitting end to the Blood Brother Series, as she brings the Sin Brothers into the fold supporting Denver, Heath and Logan and the ever supporting cop, risking their lives to protect justice and the innocent. It’s a fascinating read of power and control, the many facets of high-level intelligence and the dreams of an evil woman wanting the ultimate power. A very fast faced and action packed story, Rebecca Zanetti is a superior creator of some amazing stories!

Continuing with the Rogue Justice novellas, Kendra Elliot brings closer to the unsolved and “Twisted Truth” (Melinda Leigh) in the final book “Truth Be Told”. Stevie and Zane are brought into the crosshairs of the case when the little boy and his uncle disappear and two FBI agents are killed.

TruthBeTold-RogueJustice#2-KendraElliot-Nov2017

“Truth Be Told” is the ending and the final book of the Rogue Series co-written by Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh. It is always a treat to read more of the couples that have caught our attention in this gripping and intriguing blend of Rogue stories. Along with keeping the justice upright, getting to see the progression of Stevie and Zane’s relationship as a couple is always worth the reading.

The Rogue Series is a great start for any reading buffs wanting to test new authors. Two authors who have honed their writing skills to amazing heights of intriguing plots, twisted villains and courageous characters.

It’s wonderful to re-visit the little town of Solitude, and visit with Seth Harding and his wife Carly, but then death and evil never rest and so neither does Seth and his team and Carly.

TwistedTruth-RogueJusticeNovella#1-MelindaLeigh-Nov2017

Responding to a double homicide and finding a child chained in the basement is not something Seth was looking forward to. More than ever, bringing Carly in to help with the child is just as painful, with Carly recovering from a trauma. But justice never rests, and where a child is involved, Carly will move heaven and earth to protect the child and get to the bottom of the deaths of two who are not even the child’s parents. As the case becomes complex, so does the danger surrounding their family and team. With death shooting bullets at them, Seth and Carly have to work together to outwit death and save their family.

Another adrenaline pumping short novella, entwining an intriguing plots along with Seth and Carly’s new life, their daughter, mother and their farm. It’s nice to see the after of Seth’s and Carly’s fragile relationship and the inroads they have made after reconciling, and reading about the supporting casts, always makes it extra special.

“Twisted Truth” is book one of the Rogue Justice Novellas, and co-written by Melinda Leigh (Book #1) and Book #2 will follow written by Kendra Elliot. Brilliant at what she does best, writing romantic suspense keeping her readers enthralled, Melinda Leigh pens another thrilling story around Seth and Carly.
