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).

In a world gone to hell, better to choose the devil you know…
The world didn't end in fire and explosions, instead after an intensifying panic of disease, food shortages, wild weather, and floundering economies, it collapsed like slow falling dominoes, until what remained of humanity battles for survival in a harsh new reality.
As a ‘Hound, Charity puts the lethal survival skills learned at an early age to use by sniffing out pivotal secrets for one of the most powerful leaders on what remains of the west coast. Her work is deceptive, deadly, and best performed solo, but when her path crosses with a member of the notorious mercenary group known as Fate’s Vultures, she’s faced with a less than stellar choice – join the sexy as hell Ruin in a mockery of teamwork or waste her valuable time shaking him loose.
As one of Fate’s Vultures, a nomadic band of ruthless arbitrators, Ruin knows well the type of carnage created by the corruption and greed of what remains of humanity, so when he rides into a brutal murder scene and discovers his friend has been taken hostage, he’ll use whatever resources he can to save him. Even if one of those resources is a damn ‘Hound who’s clearly trouble. Trouble, Ruin knows he should avoid, especially since the suspicious circumstance of Charity’s involvement leaves every cell of his body skeptical - and painfully aroused.
But Fate has other plans, especially when Ruin and Charity realize they have a common enemy. Can they set aside their distrust to achieve their mutual goal of justice and revenge?
Sometimes, it's better to stick with the devil you know...

Broch and Catriona hit Vegas for another breathtaking adventure in the delightful Kilty romantic suspense series by USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Amy Vansant. A crime fantasy you won't be able to put down... Ray Donovan meets Outlander meets Archer!
" Brilliant, laugh-out-loud entertainment. I love this series. And honestly, I'm not sure at this point the series could disappoint me. There are riotously funny moments throughout that had me snorting in a most unladylike fashion. Don't be fooled though. The cleverness of the plot threads and the interweaving of different genres makes this book (and series) much more than a laugh. It is addictive, fun, and intelligent. The best kind of entertainment I can ask for, really!" ~ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Bella
When one of Parasol Pictures' assets gets himself into gambling trouble, Broch and Catriona are dispatched to Las Vegas to pay the debt—only to find the debt needs to be worked off. They'll need to battle a mad Russian with an unhealthy interest in Catriona's kickboxing skills...
When Broch is left for dead and Catriona is kidnapped, it's a race against time to reunite before the Russian's plans come to their twisted conclusion.
Back in Hollywood, Catriona's recently returned time-traveling father, Rune, has his eyes on her adoptive father, Sean. When Sean discovers Rune possesses powers he never imagined, it’ll take an old friend to set things straight.
"I love this series!! Characters are fleshed out and the story flows. Very well written. Good dialog. I could just picture it all taking place. Catriona and Broch make a good pair. There are times when you just have to laugh. There are family members involved in this story. Catriona, her sister Fiona, their father and Catriona's adoptive father. This story has it all. There is romance, mystery, action, suspense, sadness, adventure, fear, and a little time travel." ~ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Amazon Reader
"I do not normally read time travel mysteries, as they can be confusing and disjointed. This series is done very well. I had no trouble following the timelines. And as all the trips back to Scotland seemed related to the present plotline, it was cohesive for me." ~ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Amazon Reader
"Terrific Series! I just finished reading the 4-book Kilty series and I am wanting more! I've fallen in love with Catriona and Broch and friends, and I truly hope their story isn't over! The books are well-written, and the stories are clever and captivating." ~ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Amazon Reader
Dating is so not on my radar anymore. Then again, walking in on your boyfriend in bed with someone else tends to do that to a girl. It’s better this way, though. I’d much rather focus on my career than trust my heart to someone else who is just determined to break it.
Too bad I couldn’t hold onto that conviction as soon as my mysterious neighbor crashed into my life.
Tattooed, brooding biker, Logan is nothing like the men I usually date but the chemistry between us is powerful and I’m helpless against its pull.
The MC calls me Storm for a reason. I've been to hell and back with the scars to show from it and I will never let anyone get that close to me again. These days, the only solace I find is partnering with my brothers at the club to fight for those not able to defend themselves.
Then, I met Alison. She took me by surprise and I know I should fight the spark I feel between us but I just can’t seem to walk away from her.
As things between us heat up, my past rears its ugly head, taunting me relentlessly and putting Alison’s life in danger. But I will do whatever it takes to keep her safe and my only hope is that she will be strong enough to ride out this storm by my side.
Nothing ignites a fire like the perfect match…
Anna Weber is every inch the proper librarian--old-fashioned, conservatively dressed right down to her tightly clipped flaming red hair. She's just moved to a small Texas town, and is determined to spend time with her friend before she has to disappear. Relationships aren't easy for her. She knows too well what it means to be burned. And the last thing she ever wants to do is fall in love…
Especially not with a fireman who's hot enough to set the entire state of Texas on fire.
Cowboy can't resist the fiery little librarian, and he's determined to make her his. Beneath that prim-and-proper exterior is a woman he very much wants to know--if she'd let him. She'll test his patience. His control. Hell, his very sanity. And for the first time, Cowboy wonders if he's found the one fire he can't control...
Fans of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series will love this small-town, feel-good romance!
Mia Costas is a successful artist, not an event planner. Agreeing to help stage a charity gala is the last thing she needs, but it’s for a good cause and she doesn’t want to let her friends down. When she realizes how important the event is, she knows she’s not the best person for the job—and so will the director of the hospital if he discovers who she is.
With less than three months until the opening of a new neonatal unit, Stan Lewis, the Director of Bozeman Deaconess Hospital, needs to organize the biggest fundraising event Montana has ever seen. An event staging company could be the answer to all his problems or create more than he ever imagined.
With the hopes of more than one child resting on their shoulders, Stan and Mia work together to create a night no one will forget. And maybe, if they let themselves believe in the power of love, they can create a little magic of their own.
COMING HOME is the first book in the Montana Promises series and can easily be read as a stand-alone. All of Leeanna's series are linked. If you find a character you like, they could be in another novel. Happy reading!

You won't be disappointed, except for not having found her sooner!”

What Doug finds in the secret compartment of his new red Corvette will forever change his life. It will also change Catherine’s. Doug and Catherine come from two different worlds. Catherine’s world is one of privilege and wealth. Doug grew up dirt poor and full of envy of others who had the things that he wanted but could not have. His goal was to one day have all the things he coveted. Their worlds collide when Catherine, VP of a large New York City marketing firm, hires Doug. As soon as Doug learns of Catherine’s wealth, he sees Catherine as his ticket to all the things he covets. After a whirlwind courtship, they are married.
Poor boy meets rich girl should have resulted in “happily ever after” — not exactly. Doug quickly learns he also covets independence. Events begin to unfold in each of their lives. For Doug, it is his mysterious discovery in the secret compartment of the Corvette. For Catherine, it is a business meeting with Alex Droxell at the Osprey Cove Lodge. When Catherine enters the beautiful and serene lodge, it’s as though she is entering another place and time. The lodge is an escape from the nightmare she is living back home. Follow the twists and turns of Book 1 of the Osprey Cove Lodge Series. Follow Doug and Catherine’s story to see if there is a “happily ever after” and with whom.
It appeared to Catherine as though she had just approached Mr. Darcy’s Pemberly in all its magnificence. Now she knew how Elizabeth felt at her first sighting of Pemberly. But unlike Elizabeth, Catherine thought, there would be no happy ending. This would not become her home one day, as Pemberly had become Elizabeth’s, and live happily ever after. Catherine did not covet the house that lay before her. In fact, Catherine was wealthy enough to buy a home like it, if she so desired. What Catherine did long for was what Pemberly represented to all Jane Austen lovers — the culmination of a beautiful love affair. Catherine was not naive enough to expect her life to be storybook in nature. But she did not expect her life with Doug to disintegrate into shambles just two years after marrying him. She did not understand why it was happening. She did not know how to fix it.

But when I grab her and look into her eyes, I can't bring myself to finish the job.
She makes me feel hope. Greed.
And a frenzied desire to touch her.
Make her mine.
I was supposed to destroy everything in my path.
Instead, I took her ... and consumed her whole.
BEAST is a smoldering new Dark Mafia Romance by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Clarissa Wild. WARNING: This book includes scenes that may be disturbing to some readers.
New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne brings readers another heartwarming story of community and romance in Blackberry Summer, the first book in the Hope’s Crossing series.
Claire Bradford needed a wake-up call. What she didn’t need was a tragic car accident. As a single mom and the owner of a successful bead shop, Claire leads a predictable life in Hope’s Crossing, Colorado. So what if she has no time for romance? At least, that’s what she tells herself, especially when her best friend’s sexy younger brother comes back to town as the new chief of police.
But when the accident forces Claire to slow down and lean on others—especially Riley McKnight—she realizes, for the first time, that things need to change. And not just in her own life. The accident—and the string of robberies committed by teenagers that led up to it—is a message to the people of Hope’s Crossing. The sense of community and togetherness had been lost during those tough years. But with a mysterious “Angel of Hope” working to inspire the town, Riley and Claire will find themselves opening up to love and other possibilities by the end of an extraordinary summer…
With killer werewolves on her tail and the mysterious Council breathing down her neck, Nissa is going to have to trust in her own abilities if she hopes to survive.
After half-wizard Nissa’s power to manipulate time ends in tragedy, she flees home to Nowhere, but before long, her past catches up to her, in the form of another supernatural asking for help.
Nissa has one rule: no fraternizing with customers. Especially of the sexy werewolf variety. Blake, however, won’t take no for an answer…and neither will the dead body in the bar parking lot.
If anyone discovers her abilities, they’ll exploit her, and she’s too ready to think Blake will be an exception. Yet, he’s pulled her into the mystery, and tasks her with helping get his sister out of town.
It won’t be easy, but if anyone understands being on the run, it’s Nissa. Problem is, time is running out, and if Nissa doesn’t figure out who the real killer is before they strike again, she could be the next victim.
