Not Without Risk
Emily Marshall is in a calm relationship that seems to be moving along nicely, with the richest, most eligible bachelor in town. But on one of his many boat parties, Emily accidentally overhears a shocking conversation that implies her boyfriend is in fact involved in drug smuggling. As a teacher who's seen the tragedy that drugs bring, she hurries to bring this information to the police. The last thing she expects to find there is Jim Keegan, the man who so cruelly broke her heart seven years ago. But when he is assigned to work undercover as her brother, they both have to face the demons from the past and rediscover their passions for each other that still burn strong.
A Man to Die For
When Carrie Brooks blows police officer Felipe Salazar's cover infiltrating organized crime, she finds herself running away with him as he is chased by both murderers and police alike. But is she his hostage or is he protecting her? As Carrie begins to believe Felipe, she also falls in love with the man who is protecting her and whom she helps to redeem.
These were both great fluff stories. Low on the suspense, real high on the romance, perfect beachside stories. In fact, I read these by the poolside! They're really good light reading, the characters are believable and likable, and the romance is, as they say, "sizzling." I like "two-for"s like this, where the characters from one end up in some small way in the next.And the style of both stories is fun and fast, so although it's easy reading, it's not at all slow!
