I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Romantic Suspense
source: private library

Undercover mercenary Trace Rivers loves the adrenaline rush of a well-planned mission. First he'll earn the trust of corrupt businessman Murray Coburn, then gather the proof he needs to shut down the man's dirty smuggling operation. It's a perfect scheme—until Coburn's long-lost daughter saunters in with her own deadly plan for revenge.

With a smile like an angel and fire in her eyes, Priscilla Patterson isn't who she seems to be. But neither is the gorgeous bodyguard who ignites all her senses. Joining forces to plot Coburn's downfall, Priss and Trace must fight the undeniable heat between them. For one wrong move, one lingering embrace, will expose them to the wrath of a merciless opponent….

Yikes! A romance book with a decidedly sickening story line. Well, corrupt "businessman" deals in human trafficking. So yeah, the hero is there to shut him down but anyone in that line of work has to be off a little mentally. We didn't spend a lot of time with the merchandise (thank Heavens), but interactions between Coburn and his girlfriend are a little off putting.

This book has kidnapping, rescue, true love, and surprises. Great addition to a series about men with the skills, training and knowledge to do all that is necessary.

Ready for the next book, Savor the Danger, which is already in the house!
