King of Clubs by Sandra Owens

King of Clubs:850.jpg

Don’t Miss This New and Exciting Romantic Suspense Novel!

The King of Clubs is an exciting read, filled with romance, danger, and love.
Special Agent Court Gentry tried for six years to forget Lauren Montgomery. They had spent only one glorious week together before she ended their relationship. The woman shouldn’t mean anything to him, but she did. Lauren was the girl of his dreams, and Court had no idea why he was dumped. So when Lauren Montgomery, accidentally walked back into his life, Court didn’t know what to think. Of course, he was furious with her; he just couldn’t stay that way. Court was still in love with the woman.

Lauren was shocked to find the man she’d fantasized over for years, sitting in her apartment. She had broken off with Court, to protect him, against her insane ex-husband, Stephan. Stephan had almost killed her once before he was arrested, and sent to jail. Lauren was hoping that Stephan had lost interest in her because, the evil man, was due out in two weeks. Lauren, however, would have no such luck. Stephan was as obsessed with her, as he ever was.

Court Gentry was livid when he discovered the reason why Lauren had dumped him. If she’d been honest and trusted his ability to keep her safe, they would have been together for six years already. Instead, she broke his heart, and now, Court was going to enjoy, taking out his hurt, anger, and frustration on the Russian ex-husband. But, first, Court needed to convince Lauren to stay with him. That, unfortunately, would prove to be more easily said than done.

The King of Clubs is a compelling read. The book captured my attention from the very first page and kept it until the end. This book has it all; a clever plot, well-developed characters, realistic dialogue, and romance. I loved it, and I’ll be looking forward to reading book three in this riveting series.

Everything We Left Behind by Kerry Lonsdale

everything we left behind....:800...jpg

 

Don’t Miss Kerry Lonsdale’s newest Romantic Suspense Novel.

Everything We Left Behind, Coming 7/4/17

 

Everything We Left Behind is a fascinating story that captivated my attention from the very start.

For six years, after surviving an attempt on his life, James Donato from California lived in a dissociative fugue state. His brother, Thomas, assisted him in starting a new life. He set James up with a new identity, as Carlos Dominguez, an artist living in Mexico. Carlos, having no memory of his prior life as James, and no recollection of Aimee, the love of his life, married a Mexican woman. Although Carlos is now widowed, he’s content living with his two sons in Mexico; that was, though, until, Aimee showed up in his life, cracking his dissociative fugue state.

Carlos’s world comes apart when he learns that he is James Donato, a man from a crooked, untrustworthy family. Carlos is petrified for his family’s safety. James will have no memory of his life in Mexico, his children or Natalya. Carlos’s real fear, however, is what the Donato family will do to his sons. The family member who tried to kill him is due out of jail, soon. If James doesn’t know that he has sons, how will he protect them?

Carlos knows that his time is running out. The increase in vivid dreams and headaches are positive indicators that his true identity is trying to break through. So, Carlos starts to write his life down in excruciating detail for James. Carlos desperately wants James to know just how much Natalya and his sons mean to him.

Everything We Left Behind is about a man searching for who he is, letting go of what is no longer his, and finding acceptance and happiness in life once again. The story is told from both James and Carlos’s point of view. I was so engrossed in the character’s lives that I couldn’t put the book down. I loved everything about this novel and highly recommend giving it a read.

New Gripping Intense Thriller
by Laurie R. King

 

Linda McDonald was well aware of the huge project she took on when she accepted the position at the Guadalupe Middle School. Gangs, violence, bullying, and drugs were the norm there. But after only a year as their principal, Linda had fallen in love with the students and could already see improvements in their schoolwork. Sure, Guadalupe Middle School still had problems, some of them weighed more heavily on her than others, such as, the missing eleven-year-old, and the student who was murdered. But, nothing prepared Linda McDonald for what she would face on Career Day.

Sergeant Olivia Mendez, of San Felipe Police Department, was walking the school perimeter when she eyed Gordon, Linda McDonald’s husband. There was something mysterious and shady about Gordon. But until he gave her cause for real concern, she wouldn’t investigate. Olivia didn’t have many friends, and she was afraid that if she dug too deeply into Gordon’s past, she would lose Linda McDonald’s friendship. However, Olivia still planned on watching Gordon, closely, along with Tio, the janitor. There was something off about that man, also. He didn’t act like a janitor. Tio was hiding something, Olivia was certain of it. But, today she would concentrate on Career day. Olivia would make sure that everything went as smoothly and safely as possible. She was wrong though, very, very wrong.

Lockdown is a fast-paced, intense, and gripping thriller. Once I got to know the unique characters in this complex story, I couldn’t put it down.

Pretty Dolls and Hand Grenades by Cara Reinard

Pretty Dolls and Hand Grenades5.99

 

Don’t Miss This Brilliantly Crafted, Unputdownable, Complex Thriller!

I Loved It!

 

 

Pretty Dolls and Hand Grenades is a brilliantly crafted, unputdownable, complex thriller. I was captivated from the very first page.

Cece Laramie’s life was spinning out of control. Her perfect family was disintegrating. Cece caught her husband, Mitchell, cheating on her; anorexia was stealing her daughter’s life and her loner son was obsessed with weapons and terrorism.

Cece was fighting to keep her OCD from taking over her life. She didn’t want to become like her impossible, crazy mother. But, she was rapidly losing that battle. Her OCD was spinning out of control, blinding migraines were crippling her, and all she could think of was getting revenge. Cece wanted her old life back, but first, she wanted Mitchell and his playmate, Kate, to suffer.

Cece figured that Dinah, her new Russian friend, was probably a psychopath. She was cold, calculating and downright scary. She promised Cece that if she followed her instructions, Mitchell and Kate would get their comeuppance. Cece was petrified carrying out the things Dinah was mandating her to do, but crossing the Russian mastermind wasn’t a comforting option, either. Cece sincerely hoped that prison time wasn’t in her future.

Pretty Dolls and Hand Grenades is a cleverly written, character-driven, edge-of-the-seat psychological thriller. If you enjoyed Gone Girl, you’re going to devour this novel. I can’t wait to read more by this talented author. This book gets 5 shining stars from me.

Secrets of the Dead by Carol Wyer

Secrets of the Dead.2.995:30

New Unputdownable Crime Thriller by Carol Wyer, Coming 5/30/17!

This is One Book that You’re Not Going to Want to Miss!

 

Secrets of the Dead is a Brilliantly crafted, perfectly paced crime thriller. I loved every page of this riveting novel.

DI Robyn Carter is exhausted, she hasn’t slept in days; neither has her team. There is a serial killer loose in Litchfield England, and the dead bodies are beginning to pile up. Because, of gang war killings in the area, DCI Mulholland can’t authorize more help for Robyn’s team. DI Tom Sherarer should be working with Robyn, but because she has bruised his ego, Tom is blocking Robyn’s progress instead of assisting her. But, DI Robyn Carter is not above breaking a few rules, and if thinking and working outside the box is what it takes to get the job done, then so be it.

Journalist, Amy Walters, named the serial killer, the Lichfield Leopard, and the residents of the town are petrified. Someone is feeding Amy information, but who? The killer always seems to be one step ahead of DI Carter, and the thought of more innocent lives being taken was making Robyn sick. The race to capture the scruffy, wild-eyed, crazed monster was on.

There isn’t a dull page in this book. It’s captivating and unputdownable. The tension, twists and turns, kept me flipping the pages. This is the first book that I have read by this talented author, but it won’t be my last. I love finding new favorite authors, and Carol Wyer is now one of them. I’ll eagerly await for her next book to be published. Don’t miss discovering this author for yourself. Secrets of the Dead gets 5-shining stars from me.

Serenity Avenged by Craig A. Hart

Serenity Avenged.2.99

 

Don’t Miss Craig Hart’s Newest Compelling Thriller!

 

Serenity Avenged is the third riveting book in the Shelby Alexander Thriller Series.
Ex-boxer and fixer, Shelby Alexander was not looking forward to seeing his former wife, Helen. But, their daughter, Leslie, was in the hospital, so it was time for him to put his uncomfortable feelings aside. Helen had been trying to cozy up to him lately, though. Shelby wasn’t sure what his ex-wife’s game was, but figured it was probably money related.

Helen had made the most dangerous decision of her life, when she approached Darkmore, for a loan. She’d been desperate at the time, but realizes now, what a huge mistake it was. Not having the money, to pay back a shady loan shark, came with grave consequences.

Darkmore was a sadistic crime lord. When his clients couldn’t pay, he tortured them until they found the money. Jimmy had always looked up to his uncle. He had no idea, though, about his uncle’s true dark nature, until he started to work for him. Jimmy, got his first violent lesson, fast enough, though, as soon as his client, Helen, couldn’t pay back her loan.

Serenity Avenged is a gritty crime thriller; well-written and filled with realistic characters, dialogue, and suspense. Once I started reading the book, I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend this compelling thriller.

Thank you, Craig Hart, for my complimentary review copy. I loved it!
