The daughter of a notorious pirate, Angel De’Haviland, is strong, smart and adores her father. When he’s taken prisoner by the British, she steals the ship of the man she believes betrayed her father and heads out to kidnap a British officer to swap for her father.

Blac Barclay is on a mission to deliver Angel to her grandfather, despite what the little hellion wants. What she wants is her father free, and Blac by her side. Instead, Blac wants to fulfill the promise he made to his lifelong friend, even though it’s tearing him apart.

Wrong Kind of Paradise is a top of the line action filled romance. Suzi Grant has done it again with a riveting story, strong complex characters and a “on the edge of your seat” tale. Don’t miss this one. Even if you’re not a pirate fan, Ms. Grant will make you one.

Was that blood on the ground in front of Maddy Winslow’s Arkansas barn?
It certainly was, and it’s owner, Judson Burke, is hiding inside. The prison wagon he was riding in crashed and Jud took flight, receiving a gunshot wound for his effort. He is determined to use this time to clear his name in the murder of his wife. All he wants from Maddy is food, water and a place to stay for a day or two before he resumes his journey to Texas.
Maddy hides him under the floor in her barn when the law comes calling, and tends to his needs for a couple of days. But craving excitement, she unexpectedly enters the search with him, much to Jud’s chagrin.
Can Jud find justice for his wife with the distraction of his growing feelings for Maddy?
Lawless has written an entertaining story about these determined protagonists. They typical twists and turns in a search for a killer take on a fresh form as Maddy and Jud dodge an unwavering sheriff only too anxious to turn Jud over to the Federal Marshalls.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as I have others by Ms. Lawless.

Genre: Romantic Suspense’
Sighs: 4-1/2

Today’s the big day. Monroe is getting the promotion at The Northland Chronicle she was promised, and worked her butt off for. Excitement fills her when Adam, her former lover and boss, requests her presence in his office.  This is it!

Not so. Actually he reprimands her for placing an obituary with the wrong date, and to inform her that his new girlfriend doesn’t want him to give Monroe the promised promotion because she feels insecure. What the hell?

From there, life continues downhill when it becomes apparent someone is sending death notices to Monroe before the death actually occurs.  Enter alpha male, Detective Lane Brody, with his own personal heartache.  The chemistry between Lane and Monroe is palatable, but can this go anywhere with his issues? And will they catch the author of the obituaries before he strikes again?

Death Notice is a fun, tense story with a touch of romance woven so well by Alicia Dean. With great characters and a fast moving story, it makes for a great beach (or pool) day book.
