Romantic Suspense

Romantic Suspense

A great tale of love just isn't enough for you, is it you adrenaline junkie? You need love AND suspense.  You need two people on the verge of falling in love---while clinging to the side of a cliff.  Well, that what we and our eBookHounds' promoting authors are here to give you.  Heart wrenching romance and gut wrenching suspense, all wrapped up in a pretty little ebook.  And, always free or discounted for you.  Read away!

 

Definition of the "Romantic Suspense Genre": The Romantic Suspense genre is oftentimes the bestselling subgenre of Romance, though that can vascillate with historical romance.  The elements of a romance need to be there--a budding relationship between two people that overcomes obstacles and succeeds in the end.  But, the critical elements of suspense in that romance setting also need to be interwoven expertly.  Those include action, adventure, and oftentimes, a heroine that has been wronged and a hero who attempts to help right that wrong.  Through their work to right the wrong, they are brought closer together and what would you know?  They fall in love.  Honestly, you can think of many, many Disney movie scripts for this storyline (start with Frozen).

 

Some examples of the top ebooks in the Romantic Suspense genre are Mary Stewart (Nine Coaches Waiting), Tiffany Snow (No Turning Back), Colleen Hoover (Never, Never), and Melinda Leigh (She Can Run).

But as Grace spends more and more time with her brooding boss, she uncovers that his abrasive nature is deep rooted in his grief—something she’s no stranger to.

The glimpses of the man beneath the harsh exterior Brock presents to the world leave Grace conflicted in her feelings for him. As the internship draws to a close, Grace is faced with a choice that could set her future on an entirely new course.

The Enforcer (Fire's Edge Book 4)

by Abigail Owen


Death comes for everyone. Even Drake Chandali. The aging process that twists all unmated dragon shifters’ bodies into something useless has taken hold of his body centuries early. A mate could have reversed the process, but now it’s too late. To protect his team of enforcers, he leaves, and comes face to face with the woman he’d thought was human when he saved her from a fire months before.

Except she’s not human. She’s a mate.

Camilla Carrillo almost lost her family to wildfire. To discover she’s fated to mate a creature made of flame and rage, and become one herself, should be terrifying. But somehow a rightness settles inside her, especially when she’s around the glowering red dragon shifter who wants nothing to do with her.

When Drake learns Cami bears his mark—the same mark as the High King—he refuses to believe she’s meant to be his. It’s too late. How could he turn Cami only to take her with him to the grave? At the same time, he can’t walk away. Hiding her from the corrupt, rotting High King might be the last honorable thing Drake ever does with the little time he has left.

“…dark, seductive, and sexy as sin.”—Library Journal

Dagan Krayl, the Underworld's most powerful soul reaper, is the demigod son of the evil god Sutekh. He's on a mission to find his murdered brother's remains and resurrect him, but resurrection means that the secrets carried into death would be released and, with them, a war that could end gods and mankind alike.

Roxy Tam is searching for the same thing, but for completely different reasons. She means to make certain that the remains don’t fall into Sutekh’s hands, and that the soul reapers do not reanimate their fallen comrade. As a Daughter of Aset, Roxy is tasked with the protection of the human race, and if that means thwarting an all powerful soul reaper and making certain his dead brother stays dead, so be it. But when Roxy sees Dagan face-to-face, she realizes that she has met him once before—a meeting that changed her life forever.

Neither Dagan nor Roxy expects to join forces for the sake of mankind. Or to have their loyalties tested as they struggle against treachery, betrayal and the potent desire that threatens to consume them both.

Praise for Sins of the Heart:

For fans of J R Ward, Kim Harrison and Kelley Armstrong!

The books in the Sins Series are mature, gritty, dark, violent, sexy and straddle the line between Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance.

by M.A. Nichols

 

A rogue with a silver tongue. A spinster with an iron heart.

Ambrose Ashbrook has spent his life hiding. Even his family see nothing but the roguish facade he has carefully crafted to conceal the secret burdening his heart. But when he finds an abandoned infant, all his pretenses are upended with one look at her dimpled smile. Knowing his sister is far better equipped to deal with the babe, Ambrose strikes out for the country, determined to give her a better future than the foundling homes have to offer.

It is only a day’s journey. An easy distance. Caring for an infant cannot be that difficult…

Mary Hayward cannot abide empty compliments and false flattery. Such things turned her head once and landed her with a shattered heart, and she would never allow that to happen again. So being trapped in a public coach with a gentleman who has an overabundance of both is the last thing Mary wants. But the gentleman is so clearly incapable of caring for his young charge that she had no choice but to step in and lend a hand.

If only the gentleman would stop spouting his flirtatious nonsense! No charming and handsome gentleman could sincerely flatter a plain spinster like herself…Or could he?

Set in Regency era England, The Shameless Flirt is a sweet romance about the lengths people go to protect their fragile hearts and scarred souls, and the happiness to be found in opening up to love. Because the most important journeys to take are those of the heart.

Though part of the Regency Love Series, it is a standalone story, and the entire series can be read in any order.

Hasty (The Do-Over Series)

by Julia Kent


I never thought my perp walk would lead to true love.


Then again, I never thought I’d be arrested on RICO charges and hauled away in zip ties on camera for the world to see, minutes after closing the most amazing deal of my career.

And all of it in front of my biggest rival, billionaire wunderkind Ian McCrory.

I am broke.

I am disgraced.

I am alone.

I am a sucker.

But the worst part? I have to go back to my hometown and live in my bedroom filled with relics from my childhood.

Lisa Frank never made me so mad before.

Just when I needed a rescue, I got one — in the form of help from my biggest rival.

He can’t bring back my money.

He certainly can’t bring back my reputation or my pride.

But there’s one thing he can bring back to me.

A sense of hope.

Maybe even love.

Ian sees something in me no one else does, and he’s relentless about making me see it, too. As we grow closer, I’m starting to see that while my entire life used to be a lie, the truth is staring me in the present — and it’s a truth I like very, very much, hot eyes and gorgeous smile and all.

But I have to be careful.

I can’t be too —

That’s right.

Hasty.


The final book in the USA Today bestselling Do-Over Series (Fluffy, Perky, Feisty), as Mallory's sister, Hastings "Hasty" Monahan gets her turn at a happily ever after that starts off with an arrest.

Hers.

And ends with a surprisingly cheesy happily ever after.
