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).
First mistake was falling for him.
Second mistake was sleeping with him.
Third mistake was getting pregnant...
Did I mention he was my boss too?
Falling in love wasn't part of the plan.
I was simply supposed to bartend and scope the place out.
Until I got between the sheets with the pub owner, Patrick.
My boss was wicked hot. I held out as long as I could.
But eventually we couldn’t avoid it anymore.
Our passion was explosive.
And that forbidden act changed everything.
I wasn’t supposed to end up in his bed.
Or carry his child.
I have to keep it a secret. I had to run.
Years later, my little boy needs a kidney,
And I’m not a match.
I’m forced to return to Boston and tell Patrick he has a son.
The man I loved.
The man I left.
Who has no idea he’s a daddy.
He’ll hate me.
But he’s our son’s only hope.
What if he’s my only chance, too?
What if he could forgive me and we could be together?
It may be too much to hope for, but Patrick is the love of my life.
No one else could ever take his place.
The place I’ve been saving for him all this time.
Wealth and power make them untouchable.
The monarchs of Trinity Academy.
With a sharp, intelligent look, he reeks of arrogance wrapped in an icy layer of indifference.
A life of luxury has left him with the notion that everything is attainable.
Power. Wealth. Status.
He’s a god and I a mere mortal.
He’s Jupiter, and I am Mercury.
There’s so much power in this man.
He has the kind of influence most people can’t even begin to imagine.
And me… I’m an eighteen-year-old girl who managed to make him lose control.
I’m the girl who showed him there’s a kaleidoscope of colors outside the high walls of his black and white world.
This is Book 1 in The Trinity Academy Series.

That is, until he proposes an agreement so wickedly unorthodox it sets off a flock of butterflies in my stomach.
My ex wants me back but with a breathtaking catch: he aims to share me with his two business partners and best friends. And yes, share me in every sense of the word...
First there's Ryker - the gorgeous, blue-eyed best friend who's been crushing on me for years. Shoulders to die for, and whole oceans of shredded abdominals I just want to drown myself in.
Then there's Marcello - the beautiful Italian Stallion. Dusk-skinned and absolutely gorgeous, with arms like bridge cables and a below-the-belt physique to match.
As the founders of the viral marketing team Living Legend, the men work hard and they play even harder. And that includes loving me, protecting me. And yes, even adapting me... as their own personal playground.
We never should've broken up -- and yet here's our second chance. It comes with three times the love, this time around. Three times the attention, affection, and reward.
Can an electrifying agreement between rekindled exes blossom into full-blown love? Or will the sabotage of bitter rivals tear a hole in paradise, and threaten to bring everything crashing down around us?

Thinking I don't have a real job and can't take care of her.

When Logan suddenly starts asking her to work overtime in his office, it all comes down to the inevitable...
