You'll enjoy the romance, suspense, action, and humor.

Regina surprises herself because she actually feels safe when she is with Riley, who she is falling in love with rather quickly.

There are some authors that you know always write engaging novels that you cannot go wrong with- Lori Foster is one of them. The Men of Courage series introduced Riley and Regina and finally Riley has his own story.
Riley is an ex Swat team member who runs a gym as well as works as an evidence technician. He meets Regina, a journalist, when she comes into his gym looking for some self defence training. The police do not believe her, but Regina fears that her life is in danger. She gets a "guard" dog and much of the book's comedy revolves around her 4lb pet chihuahua "Butch".
This story is humerous and well written, Riley and Red are a good match. The added mystery of who is putting her in danger is a nice bonus, plus the antics of the cute little dog will keep you turning the page. Another winner!!
Be sure to read the Men of Courage anthology first- Ethan's story will introduce you to Riley and Red.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Three weeks ago while on an investigation Chester Daily Press reporter Regina Foxworth almost died in a burning building (see MEN OF COURAGE, "Trapped"). Even before that incident, Regina seemed fearful for her life, but the Chester, Ohio police including evidence technician Riley Moore thought nothing of her concern. Riley has changed his mind because now knows Regina from his teaching her the art of self-defense and his love he hides from her at this time as he vows to keep his beloved "Red" safe.
Riley stays close to Regina not just to protect her, but because he has too deep inside his heart. Regina surprises herself because she actually feels safe when she is with Riley, who she is falling in love with rather quickly. However, as dangerous incidents begin happening, Riley takes the threat more seriously even while Regina wants him to stay away so that the man she loves remains alive.
RILEY, the sequel to "Trapped", is an exhilarating romantic suspense that stars two delightful lead protagonists who heat the sheets of the novel more than the inferno that almost killed Regina in the previous tale. Ethan and Rosie as well as other friends return, but though the audience will appreciate them and the first story, this book fully stands alone as recalls are smoothly used to bring in pertinent information. Fans will enjoy this thriller due to the taut suspense filled plot with endearing protagonists. Any one who has read Lori Foster will be unable to SAY NO TO JOE when he stars in Ms. Foster's next tale.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Riley Moore is an ex-SWAT team member turned crime scene investigator who also owns a gym where he teaches woman self defense. Regina Foxworth is a reporter who feels someone is out to get her but the police keep telling her that the series of strange incidents that have been happening to her lately are just coincidence. Not convinced, Regina asks Riley to teach her self-defense. Riley immediately falls for Regina and is determined to protect her.
Lori Foster has a knack for writing heroes who are strong, dependable and incredibly sexy and Riley definitely fits the bill. Regina is very frou-frou but still a likeable character. Riley's group of buddies are great, I cannot wait for Harris and Butch's stories. Foster writes buddy scenes better than anyone. There is a lot of humor in this book, especially with the guard dog that Regina buys (it reminded me a lot of Jennifer Cruise's dogs).

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Let me start out by saying that I do not particularly consider myself to be an advocate of women's lib. However, this novel seemed to throw the concept that a woman does, in fact, have a brain in her head back to the Stone Age. I did not like how Riley treated Red. And I like even less how Red didn't stand up for herself. This is the stereotypical romance novel with the tall, dark and handsome man making the full, round and in this case red-headed woman wonder how she ever lived without him. Rubbage!

I don't get this story. I don't understand the raves. This is a throwback to all things the romance genre has tried to rise above. Neandrethal hero. Clueless heroine. Please, could we have characters who belong in the current decade? Who have some sort of redeeming and admirable qualities? I had to double check the copyright date to see if this was maybe an older reissue - like from the 1980s or something. Yikes. Run away!

In this second installment of her Men of Courage series, Foster brings the reader Riley, a brooding and private man who has dealt with a wealth of hurts in the past. When he meets Regina Foxworth, he is the only one who believes her claims of someone trying to hurt her. While Regina goes about learning to defend herself, she learns more about Riley, whom she's more and more attracted to. Suddenly Regina finds a man that actually wants her and a man whom she doesn't freeze up when she's in bed with him.
Foster doesn't dissapoint in American Heroes: Riley. With her normal lighthearted writing, twinged with just the right amount of emotion, the reader will go through this book in a day. Regina and Riley heal each other and their past hurts with a love that is rare. We also get the antics of Regina's Chihuahua, Butch, who Foster depicts as a four pound guard dog.
Don't miss it!
