11701370_10205543720644847_1156339885_o Capital Danger

Capitol Danger is a collaborative story in four parts by authors Suzanne Ferrell, Jeanne Adams, Nancy Northcott and J.D. Tyler. It’s the night of the Inaugural Balls in Washington, DC and the setting is at one of the swankiest hotels in town. Everyone is there undercover and no one knows who they can trust. Which missions will be compromised? Whose paths will cross?

This joint effort begins with Unmasked (an Edgars Family Novella) by Suzanne Ferrell as we discover that the hotel is under siege and the attackers are still unknown. Luke Edgars and Abigail Whitson have one job and when the unexpected happens, will they be able to save themselves and their mission? Luke and Abigail must work as a team and when secrets surface will it distract them or keep them on point? Suzanne has written four books with sexy and edgy Edgars men.

Once again, she delivers us a great story with Luke and Abigail. Can they make it through the gunfire with their love intact? Maybe a little gunfire is what they need to put their relationship into perspective and finally commit to each other. The perfect beginning to this on-the-edge-of-your-seat story.

Looking for more from those sexy Edgars men? Check out Suzanne’s series Edgars Family Novels, there are plenty to choose from.

Death Under Glass (Deadly Charms novella) by Jeanne Adams continues the inaugural evening by introducing us to Edward Millner and Retta Geminous who are there to celebrate Retta’s glasswork that is decorating the room for the gala. Everything is sparkling and shimmering in red, white and blue until the room is attacked. When bullets fly and her work is shattered it will take everything to ensure that Edward and Retta make it out alive. Edward’s past as a Special Force medic will surprise many, can he shake what happened in his past to survive the night in one piece?

Pay attention readers. Just when you think you have it all figured out the story shakes things up and turns on the heat. Take note of the little touches in this novella, Jeanne is a master with those fine details and plot twists.

Looking for more action? Jeanne’s #FaithfulDefenders series starts with Dead Run and it’s fantastic. Check out my reviews here: everyone-needs-a-faithful-defender-that-will-protect-and-serve.

Wait, there’s more…check out this teaser for Dead Reckoning here:https://booksilovealatte.wordpress.com/2015/07/03/icymi-heres-a-teaser-for-dead-reckoning-by-jeanne-adams/

The Deadly Charms series is forthcoming. So, check out her previous books that are just as fabulous!

Danger’s Edge (An Arachnid Files Novella) by Nancy Northcott is a tale of agent versus agent. Everyone is suspect and secrets are piling up as fast as the bodies are in this siege. The tension between Greg Reed and Kelsey Mitchell is fantastic and the banter is superb. All I can say is there is a moment that I went from on the edge of my seat to laughing out loud. What will happen when Kelsey must reveal her identity to save herself? Will Greg give in to his feelings or just add her to one more body on the casualty list? After his last mission he was injured and recovering, will he be able to respond when lives are on the line?

I have read Nancy’s Mage series and she’s just as amazing at straight suspense. From sexy mage’s to edgy FBI agent’s Nancy writes stellar suspense books with edgy FBI agents in this world to sexy mage’s from beyond. While each of her books can be read as a stand alone I enjoyed reading them in order.

Check out my reviews here for Sentinel:
A Mage, an Artist and a whole lot of chemistry make this one fantastic sexy paranormal romance novella to start the series!

Warrior: https://booksilovealatte.wordpress.com/2014/12/03/a-mage-an-artist-and-a-whole-lot-of-chemistry-make-this-one-fantastic-sexy-paranormal-romance-novella-to-start-the-series/

Lethal Target (An Armed and Deadly Novella) by J.D. Tyler ends our adventurous evening with Dalton McCoy and Jolie Montfort at the hotel. Jolie is a reporter looking for a scoop and will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. An Inaugural Ball is the perfect place to get a hot story from politicians and constituents while they are having a great time and drinking it up.

Dalton McCoy wants nothing more than to be back in Texas with his target apprehended and behind bars. When his mission is compromised, will he have the strength to finish it out? Can he trust Jolie to keep his identity a secret?

Who will finally be the one to catch the maniac leader of the terrorist group that everyone has been hunting for, throughout this multilayered and complex, but gripping set of connected stories?

This anthology is brilliant, well written and seamless as we journey from one story to the next. Each author brings her own voice and unique style to this collection and the collaboration is absolutely genius. Every detail is figured out from beginning to end and there are no holes or loose ends. From the hotel layout to the plot that weaves into and out of each story, it all works and leaves you satisfied with one seriously crazy Ball and a bunk of hunky agents!

If you have never read J.D. Tyler, or any of these three suspenseful Romance Bandit’s books I suggest you download this book now and then dive into each of these author’s backlists. There are so many great books to choose from, from each of these authors and they are all must read delights!

Author Info:

J11715030_10205543756045732_1072337318_o JD Bio pic

National Bestselling Author J.D. Tyler is best known for her dark, sexy paranormal series Alpha Pack, and the popular Firefighters of Station Five and Sugarland Blue series under her pseudonym Jo Davis. PRIMAL LAW, the first book in her Alpha Pack series, is the winner of the National Reader’s Choice Award in Paranormal. She’s also been a multiple finalist in the Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence, a finalist for the Bookseller’s Best Award, has captured the HOLT Medallion Award of Merit, and has been a two-time nominee for the Australian Romance Readers Award in romantic suspense.

J.D.’s books regularly appear on the Barnes and Noble, Neilson Bookscan, BooksOnBoard, and Amazon bestseller lists, among others, and she was named by BooksOnBoard as their #1 Bestselling Romance Author.

When she isn’t writing, J.D.’s idea of a good time certainly isn’t cleaning house (sniff), bungee jumping (not in this lifetime, or the next), or camping (her idea of “roughing it” is a slow bellboy). She enjoys reading, being pampered like the diva she is, and spending time with her awesome family. J.D. lives in Texas with her two kids, a spoiled Boston terrier, and two cats.

Although Jeanne Adams likes calling North Carolina home, she lives in DC, where The Tentacle Affaire is set, and often jogs on the C&O towpath with her dogs. Her favorite holiday is Halloween. She starts planning the annual yard decor on November 1. Alas, in this case however, the “Adams Family” – one husband, two sons and three dogs – is all bark and no bite.

On another spooky note, Jeanne used to work in the funeral and cemetery business, and knows a thing or two about getting rid of the body….bwhahahah! (She even teaches classes about it to other writers!)

Jeanne has written suspense novels for Kensington/Zebra Publishing since 2007. THE TENTACLE AFFAIRE, her first urban fantasy/romance, was released in Nov, 2014, along with two new Romantic Suspense Novellas, DEADLY DELIVERY and BEHIND ENEMY LINES. A short story, featured in TINY TREATS #2, St. Patrick’s Day, heralds a new series which will start next year.

Nancy_headshot_new

Nancy Northcott’s childhood ambition was to grow up and become Wonder Woman. Around fourth grade, she realized it was too late to acquire Amazon genes, but she still loved comic books, science fiction, fantasy and YA romance. A sucker for fast action and wrenching emotion, Nancy combines the romance and high stakes she loves in the books she writes.

Her debut novel, Renegade, received a starred review from Library Journal. The reviewer called it “genre writing at its best.” Nancy is a three-time RWA Golden Heart finalist and has won the Maggie, the Molly, the Emerald City Opener, and Put Your Heart in a Book.

Married since 1987, Nancy and her husband have one son, a bossy dog, and a house full of books.

Suzanne Ferrell discovered romance novels in her aunt’s hidden stash one summer as a teenager. From that moment on she knew two things: she loved romance stories and someday she’d be writing her own. Her love for romances has only grown over the years. It took her a number of years and a secondary career as a nurse to finally start writing her own stories.

Currently there are two main series she’s actively writing in: The Westen Series, a contemporary small town series based in a fictional Ohio town where “things aren’t always what they seem”, and features Close To Home, Close To The Edge and Close To The Fire. The second series is the Romantic Suspense books KIDNAPPED, HUNTED, SEIZED and VANISHED, featuring the Edgars family as they fight for justice, even if it means stepping slightly outside the rulebook.

KIDNAPPED and HUNTED were both Golden Heart finalist, and SEIZED, book #3 in the Edgars Family Novels, was a finalist in the novella category of the OKRWA’s National Reader’s Choice Awards contest.

Suzanne’s sexy stories, whether they be her on the edge of your seat romantic suspense or the small town romantic suspense stories they’ll keep you thinking about her characters long after their Happy Ever After is achieved.

A Warrior, an Archaeologist and a whole lot of unexplained occurrences make this paranormal romance a must read!

A Warrior, an Archaeologist and a whole lot of unexplained occurrences make this paranormal romance a must read!

Warrior_FINAL_3

Warrior by Nancy Northcott is a colorful and magical tale with on sexy mage, a determined archaeologist and a lot of heat! Audra Grayson is deep in the Okefenokee Swamp hoping to keep her career alive. When her team discovers a metal object in the middle of a Native American dig site they fear someone is out to sabotage them.  When she seeks out some help Will Davis, a famous archaeologist and Mage, shows up. For Will, working with the Mundanes (non-magic using folk) can be challenging but he’s determined to help her find out how the metal object appeared at a site where none should be.

A mysterious fire and magic permeating in the air send Will’s senses on overdrive. Is dark magic at work? It’s when a bronze axe is discovered that Audra’s team starts scrambling and Will’s interest is now heightened. How did it get here? For Audra the presence of a hunky man at her site creates a challenging work environment and results in an unfortunate Ghoul attack.

Is there enough trust between Will and Audra that they can confide in each other? There is fear that someone close to Audra is betraying her. Audra’s hiding something that could damage the results of her dig. Afraid to confide in anyone she’s unable to discuss her unexplained visions and the dark shadows that are surrounding her. Will she reach out to Will and let him help? Is she prepared for him to discover her secret?

Once again the dig site is attacked and destroyed. Audra fears that the park rangers will accuse her team of vandalism. With her reputation on the line and concern for her team and Will, she has to make a decision. Can she confide in Will completely? What will they do when they discover someone they both trusted has betrayed them?

Will offers a solution but is it enough? Eventually Audra decides to act when the presence yet again of the shadows come for her for what she hopes is the last time. After all this time will she find out what has left a shadow over everything?

Ghouls, Mages, secret powerful artifacts and sizzling chemistry make this another intense story. Thank you Nancy! I received this ARC from the author for an honest review and am super excited that I did!  I am so happy that I did- I look forward to the next installment of the Light Mage Series soon.

A Mage, an Artist and a whole lot of chemistry make this one fantastic sexy paranormal romance novella to start the series!

 

Sentinel_Final_

 

Sentinel: A Light Mage Wars Novella by Nancy Northcott is a seamless story with on sexy mage, a talented artist with a secret and some fantastic chemistry!  Rick Moore, a Mage reporter has been desperately trying to find out the truth surrounding his father’s death and refute the accusation that he was involved in dark magic. In order to get the support to uncover his family scandal from the web magazine he works for, he must first find out what happened to one of the most wanted fugitives in the Mage world, artist Caroline Dare’s brother.

Fighting ghouls and an unintended intoxicating attraction only deepens the connection between them. What will Caro do when she discovers the real story he’s after? Will he loose her forever? Rick needs to get the inside scoop on Caro’s brother Griffin Dare, but at the rate Rick’s going that could be lethal.

When Rick’s boss betrays him, in the most unforgiveable way by publishing damaging information with Rick’s name attached to it, everything changes. It now paints Rick as a callous, uncaring and media driven journalist out for blood. Caro is left questioning his feelings and intentions towards her.

Too much is at stake for Caro, with the publication of personal information can she trust Rick? Are they both being set up? Or was he just interested in her for “the story?”

With nothing left to lose, Rick seeks out help from an unexpected source. He must now have faith in the Mage judicial system, and pray that the truth will be exposed.

When I read stories I usually have a pretty good idea of how they will end but this time….whoa!!!! Dear readers you must read this book now! I gasped at the ending! I’m so grateful that no one was home as I screamed a bit loud! Absolutely superb Nancy! Well done!  I received this ARC from the author for an honest review and am super excited that I did!  I am so happy that I did- it was the perfect book to read on a crisp winter day!
