  3. 3. By 2010 Kill and Tell (Pre-order Book) Review Linda Howard’s romantic suspense Kill and Tell supplies readers with plenty of thrills and chills. As a nurse, Karen Whitlaw has seen more than the average person, but even she isn’t prepared to identify the body of the father she hasn’t seen since she was 13. The local detective on the case, Marc Chastain, informs Karen that her father, who was homeless, has been murdered. Still grief stricken over the recent death of her mother, Karen isn’t prepared to examine her feelings about her father and his absence from her life. She is willing to accept that he was the victim of street crime until her home is burglarized and she becomes the target for some frightening “accidents.” Whoever killed her father is after her, and the only hope she has for discovering why must lie in the notebook that Karen’s father mailed to her mother shortly before his death. – This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Dying to Please(Pre order) From Library Journal When Sarah Stevens, butler and bodyguard extraordinaire, foils a robbery, she could not have predicted either the tragic chain of events that would be set in motion or detective Thomas Cahill, who responded to the first crime scene. Sarah intrigued, attracted, and aroused him, but his first marriage had dissolved in livid disgust, making him all too wary. Sarah is equally frightened of her feelings for him; she had never before felt so deeply. It might have been bliss had Sarah’s employers not developed a habit of dying by murder. This story, aided by Howard’s descriptive narrative, translates well to audio, with evocative visual images cascading through every scene. The author also writes the most erotic lovemaking in the business, which Susan Ericksen handles with aplomb. Careful not to overdramatize, she captures the emotional undercurrents, the mood, and tone of the tale with apparent ease. Recommended for all popular fiction collections. Jodi L.

Spotting strangers in Lolly’s home–one of them packing a weapon–is all it takes to kick Gabriel into combat mode. And his stealth training is all he needs to extract Lolly from the house without alerting her captors. But when the escape is discovered, the heat–and the hunt–are on.

  4. 4. By From Publishers Weekly CIA contract agent Lily Mansfield has been a ruthless, professional assassin for nearly 20 of her 37 years, but her work takes a personal turn after the young girl she rescued off the street as a baby, and the friends that were raising her, are killed. Lily turns renegade and avenges their deaths with a brilliantly executed murder, but she soon finds herself hunted by an evil family, embroiled in a plot that threatens the safety of the world, and chased by handsome CIA agent Lucas Swain, who has been charged with bringing Lily back by any means necessary. Though Howard’s latest offering (after Cry No More) is far flung, the high energy Kiss Me While I story line translates well to audio thanks to the compelling performances of Hill and Bean.

Money certainly changes Jenner Redwine’s life when she wins a lottery jackpot.

Flush with new money, Jenner can’t imagine ever finding a place in the world of the wealthy. Seven years later, though, she’s rubbing elbows with the rich, despite the fact she still feels like a party crasher.

A pirate attack, an encounter with a jaguar and a hazardous or Buy New $22.79 walk along the side of a mountain give Howard’s ( The Touch of Fire ) romance an adventure-yarn feel, but since Jillian seems to be virtually indestructible and Ben, as her only possible love interest, is inevitably guaranteed survival, the book lacks real suspense.

  6. 6. By Review It was supposed to be one last “simple” job before retirement. All that burned-out, ex-secret agent Grant Sullivan had to do was extract flighty socialite Priscilla Jane Hamilton Greer from Manuel Turego’s Costa Rican “plantation” and return her to her family in the United States. But simple quickly becomes complicated when Grant discovers Jane is not an empty- headed nitwit but instead is an opinionated woman with an escape plan of her own. Working together seems the best way to ensure a successful getaway from Turego and his thugs, but Grant didn’t expect his new partner to be quite so distracting. Originally published in 1986, Midnight Rainbow this tale contains all the ingredients of a classic Howard romance, including an actionpacked, Romancing the Stone-style plot, sizzling sensuality, a deliciously dark and dangerous hero, a Linda Howard wonderfully resourceful heroine, and plenty of humor. A magnet for readers familiar only Best Price $18.45 with Howard’s more recent work, readers who want to revisit this superb novel, and readers or Buy New $18.45 new to Howard, or even to the romance genre itself. –Booklist, 15th September 2009 Product Description A romance in the jungle – Grant Sullivan, tough, masculine and handsome, is a retired military expert entrusted with a mission in the Costa Rican jungle – to find hostage and socialite Jane Hamilton Greer.

From Publishers Weekly As long as Howard’s ( McKenzie’s Mountain ) feisty and mostly likable protagonists are caught up in intrigue and sheer survival, her tale of revenge in 1860s New Mexico is fairly absorbing; but when action gives way to romance, the story trades momentum for ordinary lovers’ spats. Victoria Waverly, daughter of a Georgia family devastated by the Civil War, replenishes the family coffers by marrying Frank McLain, a crude New Mexican cattle rancher. Unbeknownst to Victoria, McLain acquired his ranch by murdering its previous owners. However, the dead ranchers’ two sons, Jake and Ben Sarratt, escaped and now, after A Lady of the West 20 years, are ready to take revenge on their parents’ murderer and reclaim their home.
