I’m a sucker for a good romantic suspense novel. I will admit that I’m picky though. I want their to be an even amount of romance and suspense. I don’t want one to overshadow the other. Both of these books were just right in the romance v suspense category. This week I’m giving away two sets of DEADLY DANCE and RUN FROM FEAR.

About the book:
As the intelligence specialist for A-Tac, a black-ops CIA unit masquerading as Ivy League faculty, Hannah Marshall is used to working behind the scenes. But when a brutal murder hits too close to home, Hannah finds herself in the middle of the action, falling in love while racing to outwit a sadistic mastermind.
A KILLER CLOSES IN
After the death of her A-Tac partner. Hannah doubts everything she thought she knew about love and loyalty. When handsome Harrison Blake joins the team, she’s reluctant to trust him – or to act on her intense attraction to him. Then Hannah receives a podcast of a gruesome murder, and the only person who can help her find the killer is Harrison.
Harrison has spent years trying to hunt down the cunning monster who killed his sister. Now investigating with Hannah, he faces a shocking possibility – his sister’s murderer has resurfaced. As the danger escalates, Hannah and Harrison grow close, and the desire simmering between them ignites. After Hannah disappears, Harrison has only one chance to save the woman he loves.
Mini-review: The action is instant. I loved both Harrison and Hannah. They are both intelligent and strong, but also have past issues in their lives that leave them vulnerable. They have amazing chemistry between them and even after they have sex there is a tension between them that is fantastic. The bad guy is terribly evil and leads A-Tac on wild ride before they can stop him. I couldn’t put this book down.

About the book:
With each step she takes. he tracks her every move, waiting for the perfect time. The perfect revenge. Until then, he’ll watch her…
More than anything, Talia Vega wanted to leave behind her harrowing past. Moving eight hundred miles away, she succeeded…until the one man who knows her darkest secrets wanders into the restaurant where she works. Now the agonizing memories come crashing back – along with an undeniable desire for Jack Brooks, the ex-Green Beret who rescued her from a sadistic monster two years ago.
Jack Brooks knows that showing up unannounced is a purely selfish move. Talia doesn’t need his protection anymore, but he can’t get the raven-haired beauty out of his mind. And when a twisted madman is hell-bent on resurrecting her torturous past, Jack vows to do anything to keep her safe – even risk his own life to save the only woman he’s ever loved.
Mini-Review: I really liked both characters, although Talia’s independent nature got on my nerves. At times she wasn’t willing to bend even if it was in her and her sister’s best interest. The mystery behind who is stalking Talia is well done. The reader is kept in the dark and guessing until the end. I enjoyed the previous two books in this series and felt this was a great addition. (Can be read as a stand alone even though it is part of a series – BEG FOR MERCY (#1) and HIDE FROM EVIL (#2))
