Contemporary Romantic Suspense

New Orleans

Dr. Sarah Jacobs is a criminal psychiatrist that is all too familiar with bad boys that belong behind bars. The man she meets in the New Orleans underworld is a new kind of ruthless and is also dangerous, dark and all too irresistible.

Jax Fontaine is loyal with his own code and brutally honest about what he wants and doesn’t claim to be a good guy. When he and Sarah are skin to skin nothing matters but the heat between them even if they are worlds apart.

Jax will do whatever it takes to keep Sarah safe when a deranged killer targets her.

This is another book in an amazing series that gets better with each and every book. The characters are complex and intriguing. While each story can be read as a standalone they are much better when read in order and each one is loosely tied to each other. The way the author is able to take the reader on a dark and twisted ride and have it end with a happily-ever-after is amazing. For those that enjoy Criminal Minds they will find these books a must read. Readers will be taken on a ride they will never forget with these books and the characters in them.

Contemporary Romantic Suspense

Turquoise Canyon Reservation, Arizona

Jack Bear Den is a tribal police detective that will do anything to stop ecoterrorists. His trail-tested skills find trouble that he never anticipated when he partners up with disgraced ex-FBI explosive expert Sophia Rivas. With her out-there deductions she is blowing up false leads and exposing treacherous lies. She is also sparking a dangerous attraction that even Jack is unable to resist.

Sophia’s style was never by the book. She has to gamble her instincts more than ever if she wants to save lives. She can handle Jack not trusting her but letting him uncover her deepest secrets is a distraction neither one of them can afford. The clock is ticking down and disaster is about to strike. The last move Sophia and Jack ever make may be getting too close.

This is part of series that gives readers a glimpse of a different way of life and it also takes the reader on a roller coaster of a ride with all the suspense that is woven throughout the series. The characters move the story along at a break neck speed that doesn’t stop until the very end. The action starts at the very beginning and keeps right on going until the end. This is definitely a series to check out and one that will end up a lot of keeper shelves.
