5.0 out of 5 stars A good, heart-racing read! December 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Ambushed by Rebecca York grabs you from the very beginning and doesn't let up. It is terse, engaging and I genuinely liked Jordan and Elizabeth, especially the way in which they reacted to each other. The sexual tension is high, the attempt to escape the bad guys gripping. Short stories can be a bear to get everything right, but Rebecca York has done it. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story! December 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Talk about packing a lot into a small space. This story is a short course
in romantic suspense. And fun to read. I'm assuming it's the start of a
new Decorah Security series?

3.0 out of 5 stars An "OK" read for a short story... April 7, 2012
By Nina
Format:Kindle Edition
Ambushed was a quick romantic suspense that was fairly well written. By being so short (~17 pages) it was quite hard for the author to develop characters with depth along with the plot. Also, since this was a very short read, I felt that there was no relationship buildup between the two protagonists. However, judging from what I read, this story definitely has the potential of being a very good story if it was elaborated into a full length novel. Furthermore, with its shortness I felt like I was losing a chunk of information. However, it was still a pretty good read. With that said, I would consider reading other works from Rebecca York.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too Short! February 18, 2013

This is a great read for when you crave a book, but don't have the time! Although you don't get to know the characters well, there is potential for a longer story!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Extremely well written but too short. Much too short. Left me wanting more so I'm going to read the next book in line.

A security specialist, assigned the task of guarding a federal witness, breaks all of the rules of protocol and falls in love with her.

This reads like a section out of a full length novel. Our heroine is being protected as a witness in a trial coming up. The transport car has a body guard there for her. There's an ambush and our hero saves the day. They are sent to a safe place. Both our hero and heroine have strong feelings for each other and end up making love. The ending. Is nice. This definitely would have sustained a full length novel.

1.0 out of 5 stars A short story totally lacking York's usual finesse
It wasn't clear this was only a short story. No character development, one situation and, bam, in bed. I feel cheated since the other books in this series were so good.

More About the Author

"[Rebecca York's] books. . . deliver what they promise: excitement, mystery, romance. . ."
- Michael Dirda, Washington Post

An award-winning, best-selling novelist, Ruth Glick is the author of over 140 books. Writing as Rebecca York, she has authored or co-authored over 90 romantic suspense novels. The first of her Berkley Sensation paranormal romantic suspense novels, KILLING MOON, was published in June 2003; EDGE OF THE MOON followed in August 2003 and WITCHING MOON in October 2003. KILLING MOON and EDGE OF THE MOON were launch books for the Berkley Sensation imprint.

She writes the popular 43 Light Street series for Harlequin Intrigue. Over 30 Light Street Intrigues have been published. NOWHERE MAN was called "one of the most heart-wrenching, moving works of romantic suspense in several years," by reviewer Harriet Klausner.

Ruth's many awards include two Rita finalist books. She has two Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times: for Series Romantic Suspense and Series Romantic Mystery. NOWHERE MAN was the Romantic Times Best Intrigue of 1998, and the book has been selected as one of their Reviewers' "all-time favorite 400 romances." In addition, she received the 1998 Affaire de Coeur's Critics Choice Award for Best Contemporary Novel, also for NOWHERE MAN. Ruth's book, KILLING MOON won the 2003 New Jersey Romance Writers Golden Leaf Award for best Paranormal. AMANDA'S CHILD won the 2001 Golden Leaf Award for Long Contemporary and was nominated for Best Intrigue of 2000 by Romantic Times. "Tyler" in BAYOU BLOOD BROTHERS won the 2001 Golden Leaf Award for best Novella. In 2007 THE SECRET NIGHT received the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award for best Harlequin Intrigue. She is is one of only 14 romance novelists to have received the Romance Writers of America Centennial Award for having written over 100 romance novels. Ruth's cookbook, 100% PLEASURE, was picked by USA Today as one of the 12 best cookbooks of 1994; her FABULOUS LO-CARB CUISINE was a finalist for the MidAtlantic Publishers Association's Excellence in Independent Publishing Award.

Several of Ruth's Moon books (WITCHING MOON, SHADOW OF THE MOON, and NEW MOON) have been on the USA Today best-seller list.

Ruth and her husband travel frequently to research settings for novels and taste new dishes for cookbooks. Her many unique experiences are apt to end up in her books--like the time she encountered a coral snake in the Guatemalan jungle or took a flight in a hot air balloon.
