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).
Tracey Livesay continues her fun-filled Girls Trip series with this romance that will tug at your heartstrings.
Sometimes faking it can lead to the real thing…
Driven and focused, Dr. Nicole Allen is an accomplished surgeon. With a tough past, Nic’s gone above and beyond everyone’s expectations. But when she disciplines an intern—a powerful donor’s son—a prestigious fellowship she’s awaiting is placed in jeopardy.
Coming from a successful family who runs a medical business empire, Benjamin Reed Van Mont is the black sheep, having chosen to start his own business instead. Though he’s not ready to settle down, he knows when the time comes it definitely won’t be with a workaholic doctor like his friend Nic—even if she’s had him re-examining his edict…more than once.
When Ben’s status-climbing ex-girlfriend finds her way back into his orbit, Nic proposes a swap of services. She’ll spend the week with Ben on Martha’s Vineyard, pretending to be his girlfriend—but only if he’ll have his family intervene on her behalf so she won’t lose her fellowship. How hard can the charade be?
But as they’re about to discover, they’ve sorely underestimated their true feelings for each other…

Now, as the head deputy for the Livingston sheriff’s office, he knows everything about everybody, and no one can pull anything over on him. It’s why he’s such a damn good deputy. But even Marcus dreads what cops know as the third call.

The third time the call comes in and is patched through to him, he knows it’s something he can’t ignore. The only thing is, the girl is terrified and keeps hanging up, and Marcus knows someone is in the house with her.

Burnt out by the pressures of corporate life, he escapes to the countryside. But when he least expects it, a chance discovery draws him into a compelling mystery.
An ancient legend, a coded message on a stone slab, and a secret concealed in a country manor house: these are the clues that take Dan on a journey into the past, delving deeper into a hidden history.
But reputations are on the line, and there are those who want the mystery to remain unsolved.
Uncovering the truth might give Dan the confidence to rebuild his life, but if he fails, there’s no going back.
Find out when you join Dan as he chases down the clues in A Study in Stone.
The Devonshire Mysteries are traditional British mysteries in a modern-day setting.
These are cosy mysteries (or ‘cozy mysteries’ for Dan Corrigan’s trans-Atlantic fans). There’s a touch of dry humour and the stories pay homage to the legacies of Agatha Christie and Conan Doyle. You’ll always find a mixed bag of suspects, plenty of clues and a few red herrings, so that you could have solved the mystery if only you’d put two and two together.
Amateur Sleuth Dan Corrigan is quick-witted, driven and far too clever for his own good. Fortunately, his friend and neighbour, Alan Hargreaves, is the perfect foil for Dan's intellect. Loyal, dependable and with a knack for detailed research, Alan keeps Dan on track, and together, they make an effective team.

A Study in Stone
Valley of Lies
Mystery at The Hall
Murder Between the Tides.
A tightly written, fascinating mystery. The protagonists are mysterious in their own ways. Their interactions are interesting and realistic. It held my interest and I look forward to more in this series.
How refreshing to find! What’s not to love? The pace is faster; the male sleuths are quick-witted, modern, and multidimensional. The setting is English. More please.
It's the characters that really made it work. Dan and Alan are an unlikely pair, having very different personalities, but a shared inability to leave a puzzle unsolved sparks a friendship. I liked their refusal to give up until the mystery was solved.
This was just fun to read from start to finish! I had no idea where it was going, didn't guess the end either.
A quick and light story just right for my mood. I hope for more!
The interaction between Dan and Alan reminded me of the Odd Couple. Their relationship may seem to grate on each other, but they learn that they do indeed make a good detective team! For this alone, I loved the book!
This was a very different story, and well worth reading.
To become the first female SEAL, she’ll have to match wits with the best…
Lieutenant Tabitha Chapel is determined to join the Teams. She’s not about to let a little thing like gender get in her way. She’ll use every wile–feminine or otherwise–and her considerable strength of will to win this battle of the sexes. But the limits of her determination are tested by the only Navy SEAL capable of commanding her heart.
Commander Marc Miller is equally determined to keep her out of his program. As the newly appointed CO of BUD/S, he’s been tasked with cleaning up SEAL Training. He doesn’t need a red-hot redhead compounding the problem. For him Hell Week begins when one well-connected junior officer walks into his office.
The last thing he wants is to be her commanding officer when the only thing he wants is her. The only way to have her––and the surest way to lose her––is to see that she fails.
Will love conquer all or tear them apart?
Denpo Myint “Yin” Thuta is living the dream. His dream. A good job, higher education, supportive community and, best of all, his live-in boyfriend, Ari. Yin has his happily-ever-after…if only he and Ari could take the time to actually enjoy it. With the holidays fast approaching, Yin’s determined to change all that and surprise Ari with an over-the-top gift that will leave him in no doubt how much he’s loved—even though they agreed to keep things simple this year.
Like Yin, Aristide “Ari” Douniama worked so hard to secure his future that he may have forgotten how to enjoy his present. Despite there being plenty to be thankful for in the moment. With big plans of his own in the works to surprise Yin, Ari may or may not have gone overboard. Or forgotten to check their respective schedules.
’Tis the season of giving, and in their quest to celebrate the “perfect” American Christmas—and failing—Ari and Yin get a much-needed reminder that they already have the greatest gift of all: each other.

For ages, the town of Bitterburn has sent tribute to the Keep at the End of the World, but a harsh winter leaves them unable to pay the toll that keeps the Beast at bay. Amarrah volunteers to brave what no one has before—to end the threat or die trying.
The Beast of Bitterburn has lost all hope.
One way or another, Njål has been a prisoner for his entire life. Monstrous evil has left him trapped and lonely, and he believes that will never change. There is only darkness in his endless exile, never light. Never warmth. Until she arrives.
It's a tale as old as time... where Beauty goes to confront the Beast and falls in love instead.
It’s a summer internship.
Never mind that the owners are hot.
Never mind that there are three of them.
Never mind that they are twice her age.
Never mind that they have a secret “play" room in the basement.
Never mind that she’s never been more intrigued in her life.
She only has three months.
No matter how deeply she gets involved, she can’t stay…
When a rich aristocrat wins you in a card game for one night, there’s one thing you do not do….
You don’t get pregnant.
But I did.
And now… I’m screwed.
When I ended up in this billionaire’s suite all those years ago, I knew that my life couldn’t get any worse.
It was my husband’s stupidity that put me there. The man literally bet me in a game and lost.
He slowly squandered all of our money and left me with absolutely nothing.
But the encounter that was supposed to destroy my soul… changed my life.
My one-night billionaire made me feel beautiful with all my curves.
And he gave me a child.
A secret baby that he knows nothing about.
Now years later, I keep running into him.
Fate is playing this sick game with me.
It’s making it hard to keep our child from him.
I know that trouble is right around the corner.
So is heartbreak.
And did I mention that I could lose everything I care about?
Including my own kid?
I don't scare easily.
But she's haunting my dreams.
Haunting all my fantasies.
And I'll gladly let her.
Although I could have any woman I want,
I’m not a hit it and quit it kinda guy.
I want something more, something lasting and real.
I don’t make a habit of sleeping with the tourists,
But when Elise walks into O’Shea’s Pub, I forget my mantra.
Her fiery red hair, emerald green eyes, and curves for days,
All leave me breathless and a bit off kilter.
I’m an O’Shea. A businessman, an ex-Navy SEAL.
When I start a mission, I complete it; just like I was trained to do.
I will sweep the independent beauty off her feet,
I will convince her to stay with me forever.
And when her creep boss shows up on my island to try and stake his claim,
I will show him that no one messes with what is mine.
Elise is mine to claim.
And so is the precious gift she’s carrying.

And that longing is matched only by her unexpected need for the sexy Cambion Lord who saved her life.
On opposite sides of a battle neither asked for, will Chloe and Dante forsake their truest natures and give in to love?
