The following reviews are for six of the eight novellas in the Targeted for Danger collection. This was a collection I purchased and really enjoyed as a fan of suspense.
Crossfire by Susan May Warren
Wow! Even though this is a novella, it is packed with a powerful backstory, a believable love story, and a good dose of danger! It was the wonderful blend of these three things that kept me reading anxiously to see how everything would turn out.
I really liked the two main characters, Kade and Haddie. They had a complicated past of unrequited love and lost chances. This story is connected to the Montana Rescue series because there are a couple of characters from that series who show up in this book. However, it can be read as a stand alone story if you have not read the other series.
Deadly Secrets by Margaret Daley
I could not put this thrilling novella down! Right from the start, danger wove its way onto the pages of this highly emotional story. The author was able to illustrate the powerful impact that secrets have on families and relationships. I enjoyed the way the secrets were slowly revealed throughout this novella, even as it was hard to see those secrets come to light and the hurt that they could cause. I loved these two main characters! Sarah and Hunter were great characters that I felt for and desired a happily ever after for.
Double Exposure by Elizabeth Goddard
This novella was fast paced and full of danger! The author kept me guessing right up to the end. I loved the setting of the wolf sanctuary and the frantic race to stay alive. The characters were interesting and likable. This is another enjoyable novella that I read as a part of the Targeted for Danger collection. I would definitely recommend this collection (or the individual books) to fans of romantic suspense.
Lethal Homecoming by Lynette Eason
I really enjoyed this suspenseful tale. It was hard to know who exactly wanted Callie dead. I thought I knew, but I didn’t have everything quite figured out. Made for an exciting read!
I liked the characters and was happy for Callie and Nolan to perhaps get a chance at a happily ever after the second time around. Great for fans of romantic suspense.
Cold Terror by Susan Sleeman
Cold Terror really kept me guessing! The suspense of who was trying to kill Hannah was very captivating and the attraction between the two main characters was ramped up for me by the past that they needed to overcome.
This was the first book that I have read by this author and I definitely plan to read more. It was also the introduction to a series that I look forward to reading.
Taken by Dark by Christy Barritt
After reading this novella as part of the Targeted for Danger collection, I am now determined to read the other books in the Carolina Moon series because I enjoyed this one so much!
The suspense was good. There were some dangerous situations and creepy scenarios. But, wow! The chemistry between these two characters fueled the story for me. I really enjoyed their backstory and hearing a bit about other characters in the series. Now, I just need to go read the other stories and find out what happened to bring certain people together!
This is really a top notch collection of romantic suspense novellas. I had some favorites in the group, but I enjoyed all of the stories that I read.
