THE HUNTING GROUNDS (Hidden Sins #2) by Katee Robert

Publication Date: July 25, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

IMG_9266For two FBI agents with a past, love becomes a matter of life and death in the new Hidden Sins novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert.

Maggie Gaines used to be an FBI agent—top of her class and one of the bright, up-and-coming stars—until she spectacularly fell apart during her first high-profile case. That was eight years ago. Now she’s a ranger at Glacier National Park, and she’s found some measure of peace. But when the body of a murdered woman is discovered, she must finally put the past behind her and work with the one man she thought she’d never see again.

For months, Vic Sutherland has been hunting a killer who’s been targeting unsuspecting hikers in national parks—and now the predator has come to Glacier. Vic knows the case will bring him face-to-face with his former partner, yet nothing can prepare him for seeing Maggie again after all these years, or for the memories of passion it stirs in both of them.

As the investigation brings them closer together—and closer to the killer—Maggie and Vic fear they have only each other to trust. But even that might not be enough to make it out of Glacier alive.

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

Wow! I loved this fast-paced mystery. Serial killer, hot FBI agent, Glacier National Park….it had it all. Even though Maggie seemed a little whiney at times, I still liked her. Vic was solid, sexy and caring; a nice combination that worked well with the hot romance. The story never let up and kept me glued to the pages wondering who the killer was, and how the HEA would come about. I can’t wait for the next one.

About the Author

IMG_9265New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it ‘a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension.” When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Review: SOME KIND OF HERO: A Troubleshooters Novel by Suzanne Brockmann

IMG_0020

SOME KIND OF HERO (Troubleshooters Book 19) by Suzanne Brockmann

Publication Date: July 11, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

IMG_0009The Troubleshooters return in the latest thriller from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann! Some Kind of Hero showcases Brockmann’s signature white-knuckle suspense, romantic twists, and sexy Navy SEALs.

Navy men don’t come tougher than Lieutenant Peter Greene. Every day he whips hotshot SEAL wannabes into elite fighters. So why can’t he handle one fifteen-year-old girl? His ex’s death left him a single dad overnight, and very unprepared. Though he can’t relate to an angsty teen, he can at least keep Maddie safe—until the day she disappears. Though Pete’s lacking in fatherly intuition, his instinct for detecting danger is razor sharp. Maddie’s in trouble. Now he needs the Troubleshooters team at his back, along with an unconventional ally.

Romance writer Shayla Whitman never expected to be drawn into a real-world thriller—or to meet a hero who makes her pulse pound. Action on the page is one thing. Actually living it is another story. Shay’s not as bold as her heroines, but she’s a mother. She sees the panic in her new neighbor’s usually fearless blue eyes—and knows there’s no greater terror for a parent than having a child at risk. It’s an ordeal Shay won’t let Pete face alone. She’s no highly trained operative, but she’s smart, resourceful, and knows what makes teenagers tick.

Still, working alongside Pete has its own perils—like letting the heat between them rise out of control. Intimate emotions could mean dangerous, even deadly, consequences for their mission. No matter what, they must be on top of their game, and playing for keeps . . . or else Pete’s daughter may be gone for good.

~*~*~*~

Donna review 4.5 stars

I had fun reading this romantic suspense story. It was a fast paced and sexy little mystery. Peter (Grunge) was any woman’s military dream guy; smart, strong and sexy. I also liked that he was alpha, but not overbearing. Shayla was likeable and relatable. My only comment about her, was the male voice in her head. It got a little distracting at times. That being said – it was a fun read with plenty of military hunks that I can’t wait to read about.

Review: CLAIMING ALEXIS (Ace Security Book 2) by Susan Stoker

CLAIMING ALEXIS (Ace Security Book 2) by Susan Stoker

Publication Date: July 4, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

IMG_9080Sometimes love is right in front of your face.

Nothing is more important to Blake Anderson than the work he does with his brothers at Ace Security. At least that’s what he thinks until he meets the fiercely independent Alexis Grant. The security firm’s new intern pushes all his buttons—and makes his temperature rise. But giving in to temptation might be risky business.

Alexis can tell that Blake has his doubts about her ability to commit. But while most people look at her and see only a flighty rich girl, she knows he sees much more. Determined to prove herself to Blake, Alexis jumps at the chance to work undercover. And when her case takes a dangerous turn, she puts her trust—and her heart—in his hands.

Now, as Alexis digs into the deadly secrets of a local gang, Blake will lay everything on the line to protect the woman he’s come to love.

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

I enjoyed this edition of the Ace Security series. Blake was super sexy (of course), but had a nice understanding nature that meshed with all she had going on. Alexis was relatable in a lot of ways, but a bit unreal in others. Perhaps a bit too much of a need for Blake to have to build up her self-esteem at times. Not that this detracted from the story, because I enjoyed how their relationship played out. The bad guys were a little one-dimensional, but made for a tense, fast read. It was my first Ace Security book, and I look forward to the next one – I was intrigued by the lead-in.

Another exhilarating ride with the Black Knights Inc. It had all the camaraderie, constant changing danger and smoking hot romance that you come to expect in this series. Chelsea was very relatable and realistic – which made her fun to read. Dagan is of course, hot, alpha and gorgeous, but he has a tender and fun side that drew you in. Together, they were heartwarming couple. I loved it and couldn’t read it fast enough.

Gamble tpkLife isn’t meant to be perfect. It’s meant to be lived . . .

Nina Sheridan thought she’d found the perfect man who would become the perfect husband. She was wrong. When Nina realizes the man she planned to grow old with doesn’t know her at all, it’s time to rethink her idea of perfect. And what better place to get her life in order than a remote Colorado mountain town halfway around the world?

Gnaw Bone, Colorado, may not be flashy or cosmopolitan, but it’s got a brand of hospitality all its own. Nina isn’t entirely sure she’s ready to trade the life she thought she wanted in England for cozy evenings in her mountain retreat, and she definitely isn’t sure she’s ready to handle the connection she feels to the owner of her rental house, Max Holden . . .

Nina didn’t come to Colorado to find love, but even the best-laid plans can go awry. Now, if Nina can let go of her past, Max-and a future in Gnaw Bone-might just be the perfect second chance she’s been waiting for.

Lexie Berry has had nothing but bad luck. You name it, Lexie has probably survived it-or worse. But there’s only so much bad luck a girl can take, and now one promise is all that stands between her and a brand-new life.

When that promise brings her to Carnal, Colorado, Lexie isn’t sure the rough, yet strangely charming, town is for her. But there’s something Carnal has that might just make staying around worth it . . . and that’s Ty Walker.

For five years, Ty was imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. Now he wants revenge on the people who framed him. Lexie knows there’s a difference between vengeance and justice, and she’ll do everything she can to make sure Ty gets the latter. And with the good people of Carnal on their side, Lexie and Ty might finally find their luck is changing for the better.

Donna 5 Stars

I loved Lexie right off as I could relate to her and her inner thinking. She was a goof, but a likeable one. Ty was the typical brooding, intense alpha with a goal in mind. I liked how he changed during the story. Of course, he did something that made me mad, but then…he is a guy, and he made it right. The friends surrounding them are fun, loyal and ones I wish I had. Sexy, intense and fast-paced. I could not put it down. I’ve not read this series before, and am glad that this new release put them on my radar. If you like Kristen Ashley’s style of writing, then you’ll love this series.

 Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana, and has lived in Denver, Colorado, and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multigenerational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland, and Kristen grew up listening to the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon, and Whitesnake.

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

Review: WOLF HUNT (SWAT, Book 6) by Paige Tyler

IMG_8829

WOLF HUNT (SWAT, Book 6) by Paige Tyler

Publication Date: June 6, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

SynopsisIMG_8822New Orleans is hot.
Remy Boudreaux is hotter.
…it’s a perfect storm.

Boudreaux is back in New Orleans with his fellow Dallas SWAT officers for a week of training with the NOLA PD. On the eve of a tropical storm, Remy and his buddies prowl the French Quarter. A tantalizing scent captures Remy’s senses, forcing him to follow until he is face-to-face with Triana Bellamy―his beautiful high school crush.

Ever since Remy’s partner―and first love―was killed on the job, he’s kept women at a distance. As Remy and Triana grow closer, he struggles to keep things casual.

But when a mysterious wolf pendant ropes them both into danger, Remy’s protective instincts kick in. He may have to reveal his true self…and hope that Triana can accept him as he is.

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

Fun, fast paced cat-and-mouse story. The SWAT team once again comes to the rescue in all their glory. Remy had some hang-ups, but he got his head on straight. I loved that it was set in New Orleans and delved a toe into the mystical possibilities of the city. It added a fun edge to it all. Triana was fun, and her reaction to learning about werewolves was realistic. I thought she pushed one investigative scene past her personality, but it worked out and I easily forgave her. I loved it, and can’t wait for the next one.

DEEP BURN: Station Seventeen Book 2 by Kimberly Kincaid

Publication Date: June 13, 2017

Genre: Romantic Suspense/ Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

IMG_8798Firefighter Shae McCullough is all-in, all the time. When her reckless response at a fire earns her a two-week penance filing paperwork for the arson investigation unit, the rules and routines are enough to bore her senseless. But the discovery of a possible arson at a murder scene has her instincts fired up, and when Shae is assigned to assist Remington’s elite intelligence unit with their investigation, she’s all too ready to jump in with both boots first.

To tech and surveillance expert James Capelli, logic isn’t just a job requirement, it’s a way of life. He’s less than thrilled to work with Shae, whose impulsiveness threatens his sanity and whose curves threaten his composure. Despite their differences, they uncover a case bigger than anyone could have expected—along with an attraction that burns deep.

But this killer is no stranger, and Capelli’s got a dark past. Can he and Shae outsmart a ruthless murderer, or will his secrets bury them both?

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

I immediately liked Shae and Capelli. She was brash without being reckless and frustrating, and he was analytical while still being personable. (I really liked Capelli!) They fit together perfectly. Throw in a diabolical bad-guy and you have a good story. It was fast paced and laced with some smoking hot romance – great combination. If I had to say anything, it would be that the ending seemed a little too easy; I was still satisfied but kept waiting for something. This is a fun read with characters that stayed with you long after the book ended.

RUN TO GROUND (Rocky Mountain K-9 Unit Series, Book 1) by Katie Ruggle

Publication Date: June 6, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

IMG_8721He lost his mentor.

He lost his K9 partner.

He almost lost his will to live.

But when a ruthless killer targets a woman on the run, Theo and his new K9 companion will do whatever it takes to survive—and save the woman neither can live without.

Grieving the death of his partner, Theo Bosco has no room in his life for distractions. Though his instincts scream that he should avoid Juliet ‘Jules’ Jackson, he can’t seem to stay away. It doesn’t help that Theo’s new K9 companion has fallen head over paws with Jules’s rambunctious family.

Or that when he’s with her, Theo finally knows peace.

When Jules rescued her siblings, whisking them away to the safety of the beautifully rugged Colorado Rockies, she never expected to catch the eye—or the heart—of a cop. Yet as Jules struggles to fight her growing attraction to the brooding K9 officer, another threat lurks much closer to home…

And this time, there’s no escape.

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

I loved this first installment of her new series. It has all the thrills and goosebumps that we expect from Katie Ruggle. The beginning had a little back-and-forth timeline thing, that I couldn’t decide if I liked or not. Gladly, I quickly got over that and sunk deep in the story. Jules acted so realistically to everything going on around her, while brooding Theo found himself pulled into her life. Although realists would insist that more needs to be done for her siblings, it is a work of fiction and fun to read. I cannot wait for the next book!

IMG_8637LOVE TO THE RESCUE

Macayla Burkett is no ordinary private eye. She’s a pet detective, dedicated to tracking down missing dogs and cats. When two famous racing greyhounds disappear and turn up dead, Macayla finds herself in the midst of a much more serious case. And when the thieves target her and threaten her life, she realizes she’s in grave danger—until a ridiculously handsome stranger enters the picture …

Oliver Kelly may look like a male stripper, but his muscles aren’t just for show. The gorgeous Australian is co-owner of a K-9 Search and Rescue service dedicated to saving those in danger. When he and his K-9 partner, an Australian shepherd named Jackeroo, rescue the fiery detective from trouble, the sparks begin to fly. And when they join forces to stop a widespread case of animal theft, it unleashes a torrent of passion that’s impossible to tame…

I enjoyed this installment in the K-9 Rescue series. Oliver is such a joy, with his good looks, strength and sense of fun. The glimpse of vulnerability only made him more desirable. Macayla is feisty and self-confident, without being pushy. I loved her personality and how she fit so well with Oliver. She did a few things that belied her intelligence and made me squint – but other than that, the story was good. A fun, fast-paced, who-done-it, that made me read it in one sitting.

Genre: Paranormal Romance/ Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

IMG_8534#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to her scorching-hot series starring a Chicago crime family that has built its empire in the shadows…

Billionaire playboy Ricco Ferraro knows no other life. Being a shadow rider is in his blood — but so is a haunting desperation stemming from the secrets of his dark past. His recklessness puts not only his life at risk, but also the future of his entire family. To save them all, he must find a woman who can meet his every desire with a heat all her own…

Just when Ricco has given up hope, he meets her — a mysterious woman whose shadow connects with his. She’s someone looking for a safe haven from the danger that has stalked her over the last several months. In Ricco’s embrace, she finds one. But the darkness in which they so often find sanctuary can also consume them…

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

Wow! I loved this installment in the Shadow Riders series. It started fast and never let me up for air. Wild, heart thumping action; tempered with a sensual and hot romance. Ricco is a hard man to describe, there were so many enticing layers to him. I liked Mariko from the start. Strong, intelligent and loyal. She had so many obstacles in her life, yet she wasn’t bogged down by them. I really wanted them both to be happy, so they could go on enjoying that big family of his. I like how the Ferraros banter, then get down to scary business. I think this is one book that I’ll be reading again, just so I can get psyched up for the next one.
