Introducing Adrienne Giordano!

July 29, 2014 Author Interview, Hot & Deadly 0

  We got a sneak peek at Adrienne Giordano this weekend during the Cheating Justice tour. She’s here today to tell us more about herself and her other romantic suspense books, including the Private Protectors series.    Jonetta: I understand you’re a Jersey girl now living in the Midwest. How tough was that transition? Adrienne: It was difficult, but I was single and in my twenties so I didn’t have a husband or children to relocate with me. I come from a very close family though and leaving them was extremely hard. What do you miss the most about your home state/east coast? I miss seeing my family on a… Read more »

Risking Trust by Adrienne Giordano

July 29, 2014 Hot & Deadly, Reviews 1 ★★★★

Quick summary It’s been 12 years since Michael Taylor walked away from Roxann Thorgesson, leaving her without explanation. He’s now head of a highly successful private security company and she’s the publisher of a Chicago newspaper. But, his soon to be ex-wife’s been murdered and Michael’s now the prime suspect.

Meet Dee Davis & Giveaway

July 28, 2014 Author Interview, Giveaway, Hot & Deadly 9

Welcome Dee Davis to The Book Nympho! She’s the author of several romantic suspense series, including the exciting A-Tac stories. Let’s get started.   Jonetta: You have a very interesting background, having been involved in politics, public relations and acting. When and why did you make the turn to writing? Dee: I’ve always been entranced by a blank piece of paper. It’s like a whole world waiting for the words to make it happen. I guess I’ve always been a storyteller. My dad and I used to sit in the mall and make up stories about the people passing by. I didn’t seriously consider writing as a career though until… Read more »

Who Can You Trust in Dark Deceptions by Dee Davis

Who Can You Trust in Dark Deceptions by Dee Davis

July 28, 2014 Hot & Deadly, Reviews 0 ★★★★

Quick summary Nash Brennon and Annie Gallagher were once CIA covert operatives and partners. She disappeared following an op that went terribly wrong and hasn’t been heard from since (eight years). He’s now part of A-Tac, an elite CIA unit masquerading as faculty at an Ivy League college. She’s been underground in Colorado. When they hear chatter about an assassination threat, Annie’s name surfaces as the suspected sniper associated with the plot. What they don’t know is that Annie’s son was kidnapped and she’s being forced into service.   The suspense I cannot describe the heightened level of tension when a child is involved in this kind of scenario. Add… Read more »

What the Feck (WTF): YES I’m reading a Romance…. SO?!

What the Feck (WTF): YES I’m reading a Romance…. SO?!

July 28, 2014 What the Feck 30

What the Feck?! (WTF?!) is where we discuss bookish topics that had us thinking WTF?! while reading a book, talking to others in the book community or book news. Stop by on Mondays for new topics. Judgmental A-Wholes: What are you reading?   So a few weeks ago I was sitting in the waiting room, waiting on my car to get serviced. (Which I was there from 8am to after 2pm but that’s a different story and subject.) Likely I had my Kindle with me and I got a book read with all that waiting time. For the most part I kept my head down reading while I waited. Not… Read more »

In Love with a Deadly Marine. Bound to Danger by Katie Reus

In Love with a Deadly Marine. Bound to Danger by Katie Reus

July 26, 2014 Reviews 6 ★★★★

Bound to Danger is my 2nd Katie Reus book and she has now earned a spot on my auto read list of authors. Doesn’t matter if she’s writing about alpha werewolves or sexy military men, Reus knows how to suck you into a story. Bound to Danger is the 2nd book in the Deadly Ops series and as a reader that started with the 2nd book I can stay that it can be read without reading the 1st book. I didn’t feel like I was lost or missing any background information. But I will be going and reading book 1, Targeted.  This deadly ops is surrounded by a couple that meet about… Read more »

Blog Tour | Cheating Justice by Misty Evans & Adrienne Giordano

EXCERPT “I always said you had the best ass in the FBI.” Her body froze. Eleven months, five days and—she did the math—twelve hours had passed since she’d heard that voice. The one she’d thought about time and again after his last brief visit to her apartment, and she still managed to be equal parts pissed off, concerned and flat-out heartbroken. That voice could only belong to one person. Thus the remark about her ass and—wow—she always knew he had a set of stones, but this was too much even for Mitch Monroe. The man she’d spent all these months trying to forget. Months of burying herself in cases, months… Read more »

Hot & Deadly | Katie Reus Talks About Balance in Romantic Suspense

Hot & Deadly | Katie Reus Talks About Balance in Romantic Suspense

July 25, 2014 Author Interview, Giveaway, Hot & Deadly 2

    Thanks so much to Jennifer for having me here today! Her question for me is: What’s the right balance of suspense and romance? I don’t think there’s a ‘right’ answer to this question for anyone. A lot of it depends on the series and what readers have come to expect. For example, my Red Stone Security series is highly character driven and shorter in length than my Deadly Ops series so there’s a higher level of romance and sensuality in those books. With the shorter length the focus needs to be on the developing romance more than an intricate plot. Whereas my Deadly Ops series is high-octane with… Read more »
