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).

Praise for Leeanna Morgan’s books:
“I am addicted to Leeanna Morgan's books! The only problem with them is that I hate coming to the end of one, and can't wait for the next good read. I love how she weaves the characters together, and draws you right into their lives. If you haven't discovered her, please do give her books a try. You won't be disappointed, except for not having found her sooner!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I couldn't put it down. I purchased it today and finished it just now. Captivating story from beginning to end. Definitely a five star book.”
After the devastating loss of her husband, Jenny Sweetgrass packs up her teenage daughter, Alison, and moves to Livingston, Montana, hoping for a fresh start—that is, until Ryan O’Connell knocks on her door.
Park ranger Ryan is one of the six O’Connell siblings in Livingston, raised by an independent mom who has been a rock to him. He has a career he loves, and up until six weeks ago, he lived a comfortable life. When a new neighbor moves in and disturbs the quiet peace of the area, bringing with her a daughter who’s walking trouble, Ryan is shocked to discover that the woman is a one-night stand he picked up at a bar years ago.
Right now, the gorgeous Jenny isn’t too interested in making friends, but despite her cool façade, as Ryan gets to know her, he can’t fight an idiotic need to try to ease the pain he sees her trying to hide. At the same time, he knows deep down that both mother and daughter have a secret, and if he were smart, he would listen to his brother’s warning and walk away.
When Alison goes missing, everyone in town believes she simply ran off or found her way into trouble, but nothing about her disappearance adds up. She simply set out on an afternoon hike into the park and never came back.
Jenny soon learns she’s not alone when Ryan takes matters into his own hands and sets off with her into the park to find her daughter. What he doesn’t know is that Alison is actually his daughter, too, and when he learns the truth and the real reason she left, the secret could end up dividing the O’Connell family and the community.
He stopped for an accident and stumbled upon the one woman he’d been looking for all his life.
From a Readers’ Favorite award-winning author and the “queen of the family saga” (Aherman) comes The Parker Sisters, a new spinoff of the Married in Montana series.
To everyone who doesn’t know her, dependable EMT Taz Parker is strong, capable, and confident. However, everything about her job terrifies her. She lives in a small Wyoming town, with five sisters, an overprotective father, and no dating prospects on the horizon, considering the lack of available men in the area. That is until one rainy night, while transporting a patient to the next town, she stumbles upon an accident.
Jerry O’Rourke is only passing through town when he witnesses a roadside accident. When he stops to help at the grisly scene, there’s only so much he can do, so he flags down a passing ambulance. A pretty EMT stops to help, and Jerry is unable to resist her.
Even though he lives in another state, Jerry seeks out Taz just one more time—but what he encounters is a naive young woman from a big family. Taz is beautiful and innocent, and he wonders where she’s been all his life. When he sets his sights on her, he soon realizes that the strong ties Taz has with her family could make having her far more difficult than he could have ever imagined.

They say librarians are old-fashioned. I’m anything but.
As a 23-year-old woman I have my whole life ahead of me, and I’m in no rush to settle down.
But my favorite patron of the Golden Creek Library has a different opinion … and at 72, Charles McArthur is hard to argue with.
He wants to set me up with his grandson and I don’t have the heart to say no.
When my date comes to my door, I am oh-so-glad I said yes.
Chuck McArthur is a tall, dark, and handsome man who happens to love books as much as I do. He calls me Cookie, just like his gramps, and I’m more than eager for him to have a taste. Luckily for me, he likes a woman with some curves, and lucky for him, his dirty talk is quickly becoming my favorite sound.
Best part? Chuck and I want the exact same thing: a no strings attached relationship
But when tragedy strikes, everything changes.
I may like it when he talks wordy to me … but maybe I need more than talk. Maybe I need forever.
