Black Ops Warrior by Amelia Autin

While I have thoroughly enjoyed all the Man on a Mission stories, there was something about the hero of the tenth book that made him a favorite. Niall Jones is a dedicated agent whose work has him telling untruths and pretending. But when he interacts with Dr. Savannah Whitman, keeping his emotions from becoming involved is one of the hardest things he has ever done. As days go by and these two become more connected, the couple must ask themselves what is most important for future happiness and are they willing to try and make it happen. I immediately became caught up in the clever plot, and whether a scene contained threats or was only emotional, my captivation increased. BLACK OPS WARRIOR is engagingly imaginative because Amelia Autin has a talent for creating believable developments, where the reaction of characters is backed by genuine feelings and the circumstances are convincingly depicted.

For his latest undercover mission, Niall Jones is intently watching a woman who might become a traitor to the country that he has sworn to protect. Her previous job working with a defense contractor has left Dr. Savannah Whitman privy to sensitive government information, and there are corrupt individuals who would really like access to these facts. Now it is up to Niall to follow her around China while she sightsees, making certain nothing she knows is passed on to someone else.

Since Niall is trained to be aware of even the smallest detail, he cannot keep from noticing various personal aspects pertaining to Savannah yet wishes he did not. When he makes contact with her, it is to gain her trust and perhaps get some pertinent disclosures from her. But when it becomes apparent that the data she knows is wanted by an undetermined faction, Niall must remain close to Savannah or the critical material and even her life could be at risk.

Much of the story takes place in China, and Amelia Autin certainly took me on a colorful trip around this country. As Savannah and Niall take in the sights, I also got to “see” the many unique wonders that can only be found there. When it comes to the mystery of what individuals were actually carrying out the unlawful orders, the author kept me in the dark for most of the story. Subtle clues are given, yet just when I thought all was figured out, something would occur and change my mind. I like when not everything is known until the story almost concludes. The suspense definitely kept building with each new threat, and I never knew when something perilous would crop up. BLACK OPS WARRIOR skillfully balances the danger with emotional conflicts.

The relationship of Savannah and Niall is very complicated. He is undercover and must keep many secrets, while she is openly honest. The more time they spend together, the more guilt he feels, but duty forces him to remain silent. I felt how much it pained him when he could not tell her the truth, as he has quite a few inner discussions with himself. He is such an honorable man in all ways, and Savannah is just principled. When these two are intimate, the encounters are steamy yet also caringly tender. I had a wonderful time watching this couple discover so many new things about each other plus themselves.

The Billionaire’s Colton Threat by Geri Krotow

The ongoing uncertainty of whether Livia Colton is alive or not continues to haunt residents in the close-knit community of Shadow Creek. Often this criminal targets her own family members, but on other occasions, the threatened person is someone living in the area. In this installment of the Coltons of Shadow Creek continuity, two individuals who are not related to the ruthless criminal are threatened by an unidentified person, and uncovering the answers as to why they are being hassled or who is actually responsible is not easy. Geri Krotow has created an imaginative story where doubts are raised and danger continuously builds. Any initial clues only hinted at what was happening, thus keeping me guessing until each crucial detail was revealed. THE BILLIONAIRE’S COLTON THREAT is equally emotional and suspenseful.

After the death of her father, the life of Halle Ford quickly changed. She went from working as a CPA in Austin to managing Bluewood Ranch. Unfortunately, the place where she grew up in Shadow Creek, Texas has not been profitable lately, but she hopes to turn things around. When she gets a client willing to pay more than normal for an overnight trail tour, Halle is thankful for the extra money. Alastair Buchanan is from Scotland, and the billionaire is thinking about investing in a local company, so he is interested in learning about the area.

A successful whiskey business started by his family made Alastair rich, and his own shrewd investments have added to his wealth. Going on a tour is a way for him to unwind while researching, and having the tempting Halle along is definitely a bonus. When she becomes pregnant after they give in to mutual desire, Alastair makes getting married seem like the right choice. But when an unknown culprit causes trouble for her ranch and his business, the couple must stick together or conceivably lose everything.

Often when two people marry, they are truly in love. But the only reason that Halle and Alastair wed is because of their unborn child, making their union more of a business deal at first. Though the pregnancy was certainly not planned, both want to guarantee a secure future for the baby. As days go by and feelings change, this couple soon begin to wonder about how they really want the direction of their marriage to proceed. I liked the spirited Halle and the caring Alastair from the start, and their actions as the story progressed only made them more appealing to me. Their situation is not the best, as they have much to learn about the other, while the problems plaguing each of them only makes adjusting to being wed even harder. With every new incident that occurs, I worried it might be the dilemma which pushed them apart instead of drawing them closer.

With the possibility of a cunning convict still around, the story is packed with questions and few immediate resolutions. Wanting to discover the many secrets in the story kept me reading, and there are some surprising unexpected twists by the story’s end. Geri Krotow made THE BILLIONAIRE’S COLTON THREAT compelling with mysteries and diverse characters.

Colton K-9 Cop by Addison Fox

The list of mysteries in the latest Coltons of Shadow Creek continuity grows longer and longer as the story progresses, while danger also escalates along with all the uncertainties. Easily read as a standalone, the book is about a woman who is puzzled by all the threats that keep happening in her life. When a police officer and his trusty dog begin to investigate the unexplained events, her reactions to them causes even more confusion.  COLTON K-9 COP is about discovering whether the choices a person makes are for the best, or if they are only adding to the problem. Addison Fox has written a compelling story, where suspense and romance are cleverly entwined.

Even though the Christmas holidays are approaching, Bellamy Reeves is not in a very festive mood this year because her family situation has drastically changed. So instead of shopping on a paid day off, she is diligently working at the pharmaceutical company where she has been an accountant for thirteen rewarding years. Just as Bellamy prepares to leave, an email is received that raises some serious questions about where she works.

After her attempt fails when trying to sort out the matter of the disturbing email, Bellamy’s life takes an unexpected turn, especially when her car blows up and almost kills her. Luckily, Donovan Colton who has a K-9 partner that specializes in locating bombs is nearby and answers the call. The Austin cop and his trusty canine look for clues about whether the former workplace of Bellamy is connected to the danger surrounding her or if there is some other reason. And until he finds conclusive evidence and makes certain all is resolved, Donovan is not going to leave the area.

When I saw the cover of the book, I was thrilled because of my love for dogs, and the story definitely gave me a lot to like. Alex is dependable and smart when working, yet he enjoys a belly rub and plenty of head pats when things are all right. I smiled often while reading about this commendable working animal, as his love for being on the job is very obvious along with his devotion to Donovan. There is a genuine connection between Bellamy and Donovan from the first moment she is in peril, and their bond is intensified because of Alex. While both are caring individuals, they have pushed others away at times, thus causing them to feel alone. I truly liked this couple and wished for them to finally be happy. But first, they have to overcome several major personal issues.

As more and more information is given about what is really going on and who is responsible, I worried about Bellamy and if Donovan could keep her safe. The motivation behind the threats is believable and rather scary because of how many lives could be affected, and I could see this scenario actually occurring as Addison Fox brings realism to these intriguing moments. COLTON K-9 COP has dangerous incidents and heartfelt romantic entanglements.

Touch of Red by Laura Griffin

TOUCH OF RED keeps every thought engaged during the countless riveting scenes. Though the Tracers series is now up to twelve books, the entertainment has not diminished at all, and I actually think this is one the best stories yet. The plot is very gripping with a large number of mysteries to resolve, while various characters have roles that play an important part in what ultimately takes place. I was totally captivated by the opening scene, and my interest never waned until the very last word was read. Laura Griffin has outdone even herself with the cleverly imagined developments in TOUCH OF RED, where each revelation had me reading faster.

The latest case undertaken by Brooke Porter is particularly horrific, but also very frustrating. As a CSI for the Delphi Center, she usually investigates not easily solved crimes, and she is proud of how her assistance often gets needed results. But the unknowns just keep mounting in this case, which only makes Brooke more persistent about uncovering any pertinent facts related to the murder and possibly another person who might have seen what happened.

Since Brooke is aiding the local police, she and detective Sean Byrne end up spending much time together. With his respect for her skills plus being secretly drawn to her, he is glad for the opportunity to work with tempting CSI. even when she seems to be guarded around him. Sean and Brooke share theories and whatever evidence is learned, yet the killer remains unidentified. But as more clues become concrete proof, the danger does not subside but seems to escalate.

Uncertainty, concern, and determination are words that can be used to describe the case which Brooke and Sean are working on plus their potential relationship. Both are very dedicated when it comes to finding answers in order for victims to have justice, and she is particularly involved this time. I often worried when she took a chance, as nothing was going to stop her from tracking down a fact. The discussions Brooke has with Sean about her behavior really affected me, as their reactions are backed by such genuine feelings. Regardless of what these two were doing when they interacted, the moment was so true-to-life. Their personal conversations were filled with insight and compassion, while sex between them was steamy yet filled with caring tenderness. Sean certainly demonstrated over and over again that he is an honorable man whom any woman would be lucky to have in her life.

What is actually going on when it comes to the murder is not only fascinating but absolutely engrossing. Laura Griffin excels at getting the details correct, and anything connected to the investigation felt very accurate. There were a few times when I needed to stop reading, but I just could not find a place to take even a short break. When an author can keep me this immersed in a story, then her skill as an outstanding writer is definitely proven. I can only hope this series has many more releases.

Mission: Colton Justice by Jennifer Morey

In the latest book of the Coltons of Shadow Creek miniseries, emotions run high while threats keep escalating. What might have been an intentional death also becomes more complicated as further evidence comes to light, and I often never knew what direction the story was going to take. Jennifer Morey makes her installment captivating with numerous mysteries that need resolving. While subtle clues are given from time to time, nothing is assured until all details are eventually confirmed. MISSION: COLTON JUSTICE intrigues with conflicting emotions and troubling jeopardy.

While going to college for a criminal justice degree, Adeline Winters needed extra money to pay all her bills. Being a surrogate for a childless couple was her choice to bring in more cash, and she now has her own thriving private investigation business. When the father of the child that she carried wants to speak with her, Adeline has no idea as to his reason. It seems Jeremy Kincaid thinks his wife was actually murdered two years ago, not accidentally killed when her car hit a pole.

Though Adeline is unconvinced at first, she does take Jeremy on as a client when he makes a good argument for her looking into whether the supposedly deceased Livia Colton could have had anything to do with the wreck. As facts are gathered and truths come out, it does seem as though something sinister could have occurred. When the wellbeing of the young boy is threatened, Adeline and Jeremy know all their focus must be on recovering him before it is too late.

There is already an emotional bond between Jeremy and Adeline because of how little Jamie came to be born. When they reconnect because of doubts about the death of his wife, it is very difficult for her to ignore the desire to also bond with the child. I could really sense the deep feelings Adeline had for the boy that she gave to two loving parents, yet she tried to make the best of the situation and concentrate on discovering what happened to Jeremy’s wife. He desperately wants to learn what took place when his spouse was out alone, as it has kept him from moving on, whether he admits it or not. Adding to the tension when Adeline and Jeremy are together is the sexual awareness each has of the other, and keeping it under control is not always easy. Jennifer Morey certainly took the couple on an emotional journey as they worked to uncover the truth.

MISSION: COLTON JUSTICE had me constantly changing my mind as to what was going on in the present along with what transpired in the past. As Adeline investigates, shocking information is unearthed, and I was definitely stunned by some of the news. Several suspenseful events had me wondering how everything was going to turn out. While answers pertaining to this story were learned, there is still a big question to be explored in a future book of the Coltons of Shadow Creek miniseries.

Navy SEAL Protector by Bonnie Vanak

Puzzling threats and a reunited couple make the latest SOS Agency story intriguing because of numerous uncertainties. Who is trying to cause all types of damage at a ranch is unknown, and each new development just seems to bring more danger. A man and woman who knew each other for years are brought back together because of a death. Even though old hurts resurface, the two must work closely or much in their lives could be lost forever. NAVY SEAL PROTECTOR is filled with mysteries and heartfelt emotional issues. Bonnie Vanak cleverly entwines unexpected suspense with a touching romance.

After her father becomes an employee on the Belle Creek ranch in Tennessee, Shelby Stillwater felt like she finally had an actual home. Now that the man who owns the property has died, she worries that the place may be sold, which would mean losing her apartment plus the job as its bookkeeper. She then starts getting notes stating she needs to leave the ranch, yet Shelby does not tell anyone because of feared repercussions.

When Nick Anderson returns for his father’s funeral, he is once again back in Shelby’s life. A broken heart back in high school taught her it would be best to avoid him now, but the former SEAL is staying on the same property as her while he decides what to do with the ranch which was part of his inheritance. The thought of seeing Nick every day does not make Shelby happy, though the capable soldier might be able to fix the many troubles Belle Creek is facing.

There is one hardship after another for Nick and Shelby to triumph over in the story, and I repeatedly did not see a way to them to come out the winner on several occasions. Since the danger in the threats also keeps escalating, I feared for their safety and worried great harm might happen to them. Neither Nick nor Shelby are individuals who give up without doing all they can to reach a goal. I really liked how she pushed him to be a better man, even when childhood doubts had him questioning his actions. She frequently has to overlook the town gossips because of her parents, and I could envision such situations taking place in a small town. Bonnie Vanak brings realism into NAVY SEAL PROTECTOR, where hopeful dreams might actually occur if only chances are taken. Since Nick and Shelby often interacted when younger, they know much about each other. I enjoyed their reminiscing about the past, and watching them explore buried feelings as adults.

With the list of suspects who want Nick to sell the ranch growing, I never knew for certain who was actually responsible until the frightening conclusion. The author definitely made a couple scenes exciting because possible scenarios are very perilous. I really like stories where a couple get the opportunity to be in a relationship after previously missing out on the chance, and when some suspense is added into the mix, then I am even happier.

The Agent’s Covert Affair by Karen Anders

Danger happens immediately in the latest To Protect and Serve story, and the peril only intensifies with each new threat. The baby of an injured naval employee is missing, and NCIS is working the case. When the sister of the woman insists on being included in the investigation, agent Derrick Gunn thinks she will only be a hindrance. But Emma St. John proves her worth time and again, and this causes admiration which leads to unexpected feelings. When circumstances turn perilous, keeping each other alive becomes almost as important as finding the child. THE AGENT’S COVERT AFFAIR has risk-filled adventures and an emotional romance. Karen Anders does not disappoint when it comes to romantic suspense, as situations are realistic while characters are engaging.

Though Derrick Gunn has been on a NCIS team for three years, he still likes to work on his own since that is how he previously operated with another government agency. But when a JAG lawyer is seriously hurt and her young child is taken, he reluctantly agrees to let the woman’s sister assist in order to learn what happened because time is crucial. Emma St. John is a private investigator, and Derrick quickly learns she is very capable when it comes to tracking down evidence plus taking care of herself.

Any time he is on a case, Derrick never lets it become personal. Yet being around Emma plus trying to locate her nephew has him feeling emotions that should not surface. When facts seem to point toward a large drug cartel being involved in the baby’s disappearance, Derrick and Emma must fight the strong attraction between them while preparing to battle ruthless men who do not like to lose.

The threats in THE AGENT’S COVERT AFFAIR grabbed me from the start, and my apprehension over what would take place next kept increasing because so much is uncertain. At the start of the book, whoever is behind the abduction is not known, and even when the culprit is learned, there are still facts to uncover. As the risks escalate and physical harm is a definite possibility, Derrick and Emma find themselves bonding with each other, something they rarely do because past experiences have made them not work well with others. Insight into the reason for each of their reactions let me come to understand what currently motivated them, like seeking justice for those who have been wronged. Though they try to resist the pull between them, the desire they feel can be overwhelming.

Suspenseful situations can occur at any time without warning. One of the reasons I enjoy the To Protect and Serve stories so much is that I never know what will happen or to whom. There are plenty of characters with bad intentions in this book, and I certainly enjoyed seeing if the good guys would win or fail when they tangled with someone who had an opposite goal. Although the story is part of a miniseries, the book stands alone since the case is not connected to any prior plots.

Cowboy by Zoe Dawson

Since the first time I met the SEAL known as “Cowboy”, his thoughts concerning a woman back in his hometown captured my attention. Though there was never a relationship between the distinctly different couple, plenty of fantasies have been envisioned since they last saw each other. In the third book of the SEAL Team Alpha series, most of the danger and intrigue takes place in the United States. But that does not mean there is a lack of suspenseful action or emotional issues to resolve. Zoe Dawson once again expertly interweaves threatening developments with a heartfelt romance, and COWBOY is often moving yet also frequently gripping because of unanticipated peril.

After the circumstances of how his father died led to his family losing their ranch, Wes “Cowboy” McGraw left Reddick and dedicated his life to becoming a capable SEAL. Following another successful mission, he is going back home to see his relatives during his leave and will even attend his high school reunion. Though numerous bad memories keep resurfacing, there is one good thing Cowboy fondly remembers about his Texas town, and he sure hopes to run into Kia Silverbrook while there.

Back in high school, many saw Kia as someone rather odd, and she still loves her goth look. A good hacker for years, she now even makes money doing legitimate work for clients. Kia and Cowboy make contact shortly after he arrives, and both keep picturing some of their long-time fantasies coming true. But when it is apparent someone is out to harm her, she wonders what could be the cause of the threats against her. Having her very own SEAL around just might come in handy in more ways than one.

Military themed stories are a favorite of mine, and Zoe Dawson has certainly created riveting stories for her SEAL Team Alpha series. Regardless of where problems are taking place, the situations that the team tackles are realistic incidents which could actually occur. Sometimes the predicament is personal and other times the dilemma could affect countless people, but these courageous soldiers give it their all every time. Kia finds herself mixed up in a couple of problems, and trying to solve them brings all kinds of risks into her life. She has always kept her thoughts hidden inside and became an independent woman because of her childhood. But what is currently happening to her is definitely much easier when a SEAL comes into her life. COWBOY drew me in because of the danger, while the emotional scenes had me connecting with the characters.

Though Kia and Cowboy noticed the other in high school, neither tried to get closer in any way. Surprisingly, this attraction has lasted over the years that they were separated, and being together now only increases their awareness. While they do not want to become emotionally involved with someone, the pull between them overrides any of their reasons and results in lots of steamy sex. As beliefs are confronted, they must face several challenges which could significantly test their relationship. All the teammates are featured at some point in the story, and I especially enjoyed getting an extra glimpse of Tank whose story is next. There is also a variety of animals in the book, and I smiled quite a few times because of their animated antics.

Runaway Heiress by Jennifer Morey

The latest Cold Case Detectives story has one of the people who work for Dark Alley Investigations researching a murder that a client wants resolved. Jasper Roesch is a former police officer, and he is very good at his current job. But as he talks with the individual who wants answers, he senses Sadie Moreno is not disclosing all she knows. As he tries to find any relevant information, his personal feelings get involved and making certain she stays safe becomes a priority. Jennifer Morey has lots of mysteries in her story, and I was intrigued with each new detail that was learned. Suspense builds in RUNAWAY HEIRESS because of the huge number of unknowns.

Although Sadie Moreno is the heir of her very wealthy father, she finally had enough of his callous behavior and quit following his demands. Much of her time now is dedicated to helping the homeless, and she has even started a center to assist them in having a better life. Sadly, one of the men whom Sadie aided was murdered by an undetermined person, and she is determined to find his killer.

But on her way to hire Dark Alley Investigations in order to hopefully solve the case, she is shot. Jasper Roesch works for the company, and he is put in charge of keeping Sadie from further harm plus learn who killed the man that she befriended. When it becomes apparent the person intent on coming after her is not giving up, Jasper devises a solution which should keep her protected. As the two grow closer while hiding, facts each are keeping from the other could affect their futures.

With numerous facts in RUNAWAY HEIRESS remaining hidden at first, I kept speculating about what was really happening plus who was the culprit behind any wrongdoings. Jennifer Morey definitely had me guessing as to what Sadie was keeping concealed about herself, and I was very surprised when all is eventually revealed. The author certainly built up the suspense about her heroine’s puzzling life, and it was fun trying to predict how all aspects would turn out. Since there is someone who wants to hurt Sadie, threats could occur at any time regardless of what she doing. This opportunity for unforeseen danger to take place makes the story more gripping.

Jasper is a competent investigator for the agency, but he does have some personal issues to overcome, just like Sadie. They each have doubts caused by past experiences that will not go away easily, and these misgivings make their relationships have plenty of ups and downs. A few unexpected turns add new complications to their lives, and wanting to discover how things would work out kept me reading. Another compelling installment to the Cold Case Detectives miniseries.

Cover of Night by Laura Griffin

Once again, a SEAL team faces danger and puts their own lives on the line to save other people from harm. The Alpha Crew series is about a group of men who are tough and ready to tackle any risks, and when a member encounters a particular woman, his protective instincts are often all about her. I have always enjoyed reading about these courageous individuals and the women who come to love them, and this novella series has plenty of suspense and romance to keep me entertained. COVER OF NIGHT by the talented Laura Griffin has frightening scenarios that are realistically depicted with lots of danger and genuine emotions.

When the magazine where Karly Bonham is employed decides to send her to Thailand, she hopes writing an article on the U.S. ambassador to that country will hopefully showcase her talent. All goes well and her assignment is coming to an end, then her last day turns deadly when men use force to take over the resort where she is staying. Now Karly must do whatever she can to stay alive.

After hearing an unknown number of hostages are being held by terrorists, Alpha Crew members are sent to the area. While the SEAL team is gathering intel on the situation, Ethan Dunn comes across Karly who so far has avoided any of the men carrying guns. When he tries to send her away for her own protection, she insists on staying and giving the SEALs needed information. Though Ethan does not like agreeing to her offer, the needs of the other hostages outweigh those of Karly because there is little time left to make a final choice on how they proceed.

While the storyline does not give in-depth details because of the book’s shorter length, there is still enough information conveyed to let me know what is going on and why. Terrorists are threatening people at a resort, and there is no time to wait or more lives could be lost. Ethan and his team members must act swiftly, and Karly becomes caught up in their mission because of her resourcefulness. I liked her determination to carry on even though she was actually scared. The author shows Karly as being vulnerable, yet her sharp mind never stops working on a solution to keep her and others safe all throughout the story. Ethan has dedicated his life to making sure those who would hurt someone never get the chance to carry out their goal. As crucial decisions are made, regardless of where the action is taking place, the suspense of what will eventually happen keeps building. The romance between Karly and Ethan is at first based on desire because of emotional situations that they experienced together. But lingering thoughts of each other turn their attraction into more than something momentary. The author shows their connection is more than sexual, especially in how much Ethan cares about Karly’s welfare. COVER OF NIGHT interweaves perilous escapades with unexpected love.
