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).
It’s just one Halloween night.
Seriously, what could go wrong?
Turns out, everything….
Alex Connor, the most eligible bachelor in the town.
An inexperienced doctor who has no time for filthy, forbidden relationships.
But Alex seems…well…let’s say…different.
Com’on, this is not a good idea. Period.
You wanna know why?
1: You don’t fraternize with your patient’s dad.
2: He’s hot, strong, dominant, older.
3: Turns out he’s my dad’s best friend.
Sh!t. This billionaire is going to be the end of me.
His strong arms wrap around my waist and melt my insides.
I can’t let that happen!
God…help a girl. Pleeeease.
Every reckless action has a consequence.
And mine is growing in my belly, waiting to be exposed to the world.
Silly little Ava…she just can't seem to get it right.
Preston's the perfect boyfriend, until he's not. Miko's a nice replacement and is, surely, the one for Ava. He's hot—like Nordic god hot—a student at MIT, and her childhood sweetheart.
So why is she so inexplicably attracted to King…the bad boy? His stare burns through her; his presence captivates her. He brings out a passion she never knew she had…and emotions she can't understand.
She fights her feelings, trying to rationalize her life away…until one night changes everything. In the middle of a dance floor, she finds her hands all over his muscular body, her hair in his fist as he pulls her head back to ravish her neck…and she can't push him away anymore.
This book is for mature audiences.

He saw her from across a crowded ballpark and knew she was about to change his life.
Yes, he realizes just how cliché that really is, but the moment his eyes locked on her, he knew that she was the one.
At least, the one that royally screwed him over. The one responsible for his demotion and the subsequent disciplinary action taken against him before he’d even gotten out of the probationary period with Kilgore Police Department.
It all started with a kiss.
Saylor Rae Spada tried to mind her business. She also tried to not get involved in petty disputes.
However, from the moment she saw him sitting next to her at a professional baseball game, a game she didn’t even want to be at but was dragged to by her blind date, she couldn’t look away.
Then the kiss cam came on, featuring none other than her and the handsome stranger.
Without missing a beat, he kissed her.
Then her blind date decided to pull a knife and try to stab him.
From that point forward, she’s done nothing but cause him trouble.
Trouble that he’s starting to find increasingly adorable.

A feud that spans generations. A love doomed from its very beginning.
I fell in love with Alex Sinclair when we were kids. Our love was innocent and it was real. It was also dangerous.
We didn’t know our families were like oil and water, that the Wallaces and the Sinclairs hid dark secrets that involved us. We also didn't understand how deep the poison ran. When I found out the truth—when Alex forced me to leave town—I was devastated. Destroyed. But that was all part of the plan. The Sinclair lust for pain and torture at a Wallace’s expense made it impossible for me to stay…impossible to save Alex.
Mr. Sinclair is dead now, and Alex is the new heir. I’ve been waiting for this. It’s why I’ve come back. I’ve got secrets too, and if Mr. Sinclair’s gone, Alex’s heart and soul are up for grabs. He and I can end this feud. Because Alex? He’s not one of them. Never has been. He’s mine. He loves me.
I only need to remind him of that.

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.
After years of hard work, Kendra Falstaff’s dream of attending law school is on the cusp of becoming reality. But when her troubled teenaged brother Jimmy gets arrested, she has to use her savings to help him.
After learning of the hardship he’s inadvertently put on Kendra, arresting officer Max Nolan’s guilt has him offering to help with Jimmy’s legal bills. Kendra turns down the offer, but the persistent and charming Max convinces her to at least let him take her on a date. Kendra’s walls begin to crumble and she finally accepts Max’s offer of help with the caveat that she pay back every dime.
For a while, all is well for the pair. They have much more in common than Kendra first thought and her dreams come alive again. But when Kendra’s abusive ex-boyfriend Coop returns after a year away—having been chased out of town by a baseball bat wielding Jimmy—he’s got revenge on his mind.
She’ll stop at nothing to find her partner’s killer.
On the run behind enemy lines, the most dangerous place for him to fall is in love.
After a terrorist attack claims the life of her best friend and partner, CIA Agent Erin Sandoval finds herself caught in a nightmare that won’t end.
When the killer’s trail suddenly turns ice-cold, Erin’s unit is deployed to Afghanistan to find the elusive terrorist the CIA believes responsible for taking Blake’s life. Yet from the start, the mission proves to be a setup.
As the only survivors of a bomb attack, Erin and Agent Jax Murphy must stay one step ahead of the unknown threat stalking them if they stand a chance at finding the real killer’s true identity. Yet cutting through the wealth of lies surrounding the mission proves nearly impossible while running for their lives, and the biggest threat to their survival might just prove to be their growing feelings for each other.
Can Erin and Jax escape the shadow world's deadly undertow and find their happiness together in the sun? Or will they be silenced forever by a threat that runs much deeper than anyone imagined?
USA Today Bestselling author Mary Alford returns with a new series that will take you from the hallowed halls of Langley to the rugged and desolate mountains of Afghanistan in a tale that will leave you guessing until the very end.

“Some boys can get rough, some don’t always listen when you tell them to stop, and some boys, they’re just monsters. You gotta be careful who you play with…” ~ Jax Declan
I’m a tease, always have been. In my teens, Jax Declan tried to warn me about staying away from the bad boys. The only boy I ever wanted was Jax. But, no matter how much I tried to play with him, he rejected me.
I haven’t seen Jax Declan in years. A couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. A little older now, and a bit wiser, I’ve decided that I’m going to find my teenage crush and I’m going to break him. This summer Jax Declan will play with me.

Hell, I never even knew he had a sister.
Thankfully, Katerina's nothing like her brother—she can actually speak English.

Or get caught staring when her sweater slips off her shoulder.
Ask me how I know.
Yeah, sure, Katerina's a total bombshell—but I’m a team-first kinda guy.
I know better than to score with a teammate’s sister.
And after everything this team has been through, would I really piss off our best player by taking his sister’s v-card?
Not a chance.
But our first kiss was hot enough to melt a Siberian winter.
And now I'm hooked on something I know I can't have.
If we get caught, I can kiss the Cup goodbye—
And my career with it.
