    Navy SEAL Lieutenant Peter (Grunge) Greene is a formidable BUD/S instructor, tough and is up to any assignment he’s handed. However, becoming a father to his 15-year old daughter for the first time after her mother’s sudden death might be the challenge that brings him to his knees. She’s now missing and his instincts are screaming at him that she’s in serious trouble (she is). Romance author and divorced mother of two Shayla Whitman was in the right place at the right time when he needed help. She just happens to be his neighbor and together they begin putting together clues and actions to find Maddie.   There’s a different vibe to this story but at the same time, a lot that’s familiar.

    Tish Gordon has graduated from law school and is poised to begin working as an associate at the prestigious law firm where she’s done her externship the past two summers. Her plan to spend her last free summer back in Landon, Minnesota is derailed when the partner asks her to help out a former colleague. The catch? It’s in Jalesville, Montana…the hometown of Case Spicer, the young musician that professed his heart to her seven years ago at her sister’s wedding. It didn’t go well.   I looked forward to this story as I didn’t know much about Tish other than her drive to be a lawyer and her disastrous encounter with Case at Camille’s wedding. I also had completely different expectations from […]

  Detective Angie Pallorino is part of the Victoria Metro Police Department sex crimes unit and answers the call for a young woman desecrated in a nearby cemetery. She and her new partner are still finding their way with each other (mostly not) and haven’t created “team” yet. She’s got LOTS of baggage and being the only woman in the detective ranks doesn’t make things easier. When they determine that this case has a lot of similarities to two she investigated a few years ago, both are included on a special task force created when a homicide occurs. Homicide detective James Maddocks, new to the department, is in for a rather big surprise when he’s teamed with Angie. I’ve seen quite a few fictional damaged […]

    Naomi Archer is vacationing in the Colorado mountains near Scarlett Springs when she is confronted by some very bad people. She is ultimately discovered and rescued by Chaska and Winona Belcourt who take her in while she recovers. Naomi gets to see the best of the community during her time with them and is exposed to the Lakota heritage, which may be her own.   I loved everything, and I mean everything, about this story. Naomi captured my heart and Chaska my mind, body and soul. Her story was heartbreaking and her initial encounter with Chaska truly felt destined. Their developing relationship was just wonderful as he also led her to the Native American culture she’d always wanted to embrace. You’ll have to […]

    Amos Decker is walking to the FBI building in Washington DC when he witnesses Walter Dabney, a prominent owner of a government contracting firm, pull out a gun and shoot a woman who was also walking in that vicinity. He then turns the gun on himself. It’s clear that Dabney murdered Anne Berkshire, a substitute school teacher, but what’s not so clear is the why. Since Decker witnessed the event and the case is handed to the FBI, the task force is given the assignment.   Unlike the first two books, the task force is investigating a hot case instead of a cold one. It’s classic police procedural with Decker’s added unique skills. As it progresses, the investigation runs smack into another of […]

    Review   We met both Melody Rodriguez and Trent Hettinger in the first two books of this series. But, we only knew the basics. She’s Evelyn’s best friend, he dated Evelyn briefly. He’s into BDSM and is a Dom. She’s really good at her jobs and is in a committed relationship with him. Now, their story takes major steps backwards in time to share how they came to be.   One of the unexpected bonuses coming out of this story was getting third party perspectives about the Evelyn/Austin/Ross relationship from the very beginning. I wondered during the first two books how much employees and others knew about them, what they thought and that gets answered. And, more details about Evelyn’s dalliance with Trent […]
