Action packed

This is one action packed story from start to finish. It's the first book in a new series but it starts with a familiar character, Cal Rylan. Rylan is the detective highlighted in the recent Sutton Capital books and now we get his story. After his partner is injured Cal is teamed up with Special Agent Eve Sands to solve the case of the sniper that is terrorizing the city. As the case heats up so does the attraction between these two!

Don't miss this one, I highly recommend it!

Terrific Romantic Suspense!

Another thrilling ride of a read by this author! Cal, a police detective, and Eve, an FBI agent, meet on a task force and work together to solve a string of vigilante-type sniper homicides. As long as they worked together on the case they have to fight their escalating attraction for each other while fighting crime, but their combined intellect and past experiences make them an unbeatable couple at finding the reasons for the shootings and ultimately the sniper. Ryan knows how to do unbeatable romantic suspense !

Terrific Romantic Suspense!!

This is the first in a new romantic suspense series from the author who wrote the Sutton Capital Series. It is a stand-alone novel without a cliffhanger ending but these characters are sure to appear in future books in the series—and I can’t wait to read them!

Cal Rylan is a good cop who blames himself when his partner is shot in a suspect’s transfer gone bad. He is assigned to work with FBI Special Agent Eve Sands on a task force aimed at stopping a vigilante sniper loose in New Haven, CT. As they investigate the case their attraction to each other is increasingly evident and harder to ignore. Neither of them wants a workplace romance but as the case heats up so do their hearts.

Workplace sexual harassment is identified and I wanted to cheer for the women who stepped forward to stop the predator. It was a timely, powerful message.

There are a few steamy, sexy scenes between Cal and Eve but they were tastefully done, not smut. Their slow, hesitant romance added a lot to the plot.

Some twists and turns in the plot make for interesting reading and Ms. Ryan paces the story to maximize the intrigue. It is a puzzle as to the motive and identity of the sniper and, as the task force zeroes in on the suspect, the suspense is magnified. I didn’t identify the sniper’s identity until right before exposure so it was a good “who done it” as well. This is a great read and one not to be missed. I can’t wait for the next books in this series!
