*ALL REVIEWS FOR MY BOOKS ARE BY REAL READERS & REVIEWERS W/OUT COMPENSATION*

5 of 5 "Lips" from Ms. Romantic Reads (msromanticreads.wordpress.com/2013/01/02/review-christine-m-fairchild-an-eye-for-danger/)

I don't know whether to hug my Kindle close to my chest or fling it across the room. An Eye For Danger was exciting, thrilling, swoon worthy, and had me biting my nails and gasping in anger or surprise from beginning to end. The suspense portion of the story with all the evasive maneuvers while the hero and heroine are running for their lives made me think of The Pelican Brief. I spent all day reading this book and only reluctantly put it down long enough to make dinner... (more at (msromanticreads.wordpress.com/2013/01/02/review-christine-m-fairchild-an-eye-for-danger/) ... As for the story as a whole, I can only attribute my rapt attention on page after page to the fantastic dialogue and writing skills of Ms Fairchild. The dialogue witty, sarcastic, caustic, emotional, but the conversations never stalled. Descriptions of situations or the world around them were filled with details, sights, sounds, smells. I also loved the fact that I could never put my finger on who was good or bad. The game kept changing, taunts and hints were dropped that made me constantly change alliances. The author also knows how to write really twisted villains. I'll just say there was a scene towards the end that made my heart pound. This story was an emotional roller coaster, but one I'd gladly hop on again for the thrill of the ride. If you love reading romantic suspense with an edge, you won't want to pass this book up.

From the Author


Who are your favorite romance characters (besides your own?)

Easy question. Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre and Rochester. There's so much complexity and sexual tension in the very few conversations they hold. That's brilliant writing. I tend toward darker romances and deeply flawed characters. I also love Darcy and Elizabeth for their dance around social obligations and objections, and for their need to transcend their family dramas to individualize and achieve their own happiness. And both stories offer a tempered and yet realistic happily ever after (HEA) ending.

Tell me what inspired this story.

My stories evolve out of dreams. I'm a big fan of the hero and heroine fighting for a cause larger than themselves, while fighting for their own redemption. I also like puzzle stories, i.e. mysteries. And I like stories of corruption and bad guys getting their comeuppance. You'll probably never find me writing a serial killer story. There's plenty of those already. What interests me more are the psychopaths and narcissists living normal lives and abusing the power and trust of the people. (Let's just say I used to work in politics.)

In my book, "An Eye for Danger", my dream comprised the opening scene to the book: the dilemma of an undercover cop (FBI Agent Sam Fields) breaking protocol and taking a woman (former war photographer, Jules Larson) hostage to get away from the one of the detectives (Stone McCarthy) he's investigating for corruption. Basically, the book opens with the bad guy looking good and the good guy looking bad. I think it's important to allow your heroes and villains to switch places. In this case, there are other key bad guys who go down. Stone is an ongoing rival throughout the series, a personal nemesis to both Sam and Jules. Like Sherlock Holmes' Moriarty, he keeps rising from the shadows.

4.5 stars. Excellent romantic suspense tale about a war photographer with PTSD and a man she's not sure she can trust. Journalist Julie Larson goes for a jog in Central Park and stumbles into the middle of a murder in progress. When one of the men involved takes her hostage, she finds that the man is actually trying to protect her from the other man involved in the murder. He lets her go, but shows up later at her apartment badly injured and in need of help. She reluctantly assists him, and as they get to know each other, she learns that he is not exactly what he seems... nor is the handsome police detective who keeps nosing around.

When the murderer from the park makes another attempt on her, and she is saved by the intervention of her mystery man, Julie learns that she's stumbled into a vast conspiracy, and her only hope to survive it is to trust a man who refuses to tell her the full truth for fear of what will happen to her if she knows.

I really enjoyed this book. Tight writing, twists and turns galore, characters who were well-fleshed out and real, a mystery to keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat. I don't normally like romance novels written in the first person because I like to get inside the heads of both leads, but the structure of the story worked with us only being in Julie's head. I think I might have loved the book even more if I'd been inside the hero's head as well, but I enjoyed it as it was. The action scenes were taut and carried a real punch, and I felt every blow the characters took.

The story did get a touch convoluted at times, and I had a hard time remembering some of the peripheral characters, so I had to back-track occasionally to figure out who they were when they were mentioned (Houston is one example).

This was a great read! I couldn't put it down. It has a bit of everything, drama, mystery, excitement and a bit of naughtiness to spice it up! Read it, you will not regret it!

Ms. Fairchild has crafted an excellent suspense romance here--lots of twists and turns and gotchas. But for me, it's the characters that made the book such a worthwhile read. Her two main characters--Sam and Jules--are multi-dimensional, fully realized, quirky, and totally engaging. And her bad guys (once you figure out exactly who they are) are VERY bad, with just enough "so what is this guy really doing?" motivational mystery to keep you interested and guessing. And even her "extra" characters (the cabbie, Sam's car-fixin' friends, the old sheriff toward the end, etc.) are wonderful, sympathetic "real" people. But for me, the real hero of the story--MY favorite character--is Max. I hope it's not too many books down the road in this series when we'll see HIS story. Oh--and P.S. for the guys out there: there may be a dude's semi-nude torso on the cover (and not a chick's), but take it from me, this is a GREAT read. Check it out!

Finally an author who not only got "it" right, but is, hands down one, of the best writers around. Christine hooked me with her characters but sealed the deal when she got the lingo and details right. My only question is - when are we going to be able to get our hands on her next book?

Christine Fairchild applies the lessons from both of her writing books, and it shows.
An Eye For Danger, is a real page turner that offers an in depth look at PTSD, and many other tough subjects, which were handled with care.
I always enjoy a good story that showcases how Marines try to readjust after they leave the military. So this story really touched my heart.
Jules Larson is brave and tough, despite her small stature. I adored her dog {Max, who easily is my favorite character. Yeah, I'm weird because the least expected characters are the ones who win over my affection.}
Sam Fields is equally as loveable and flawed. All the characters jump to life from page one, and keep tugging at your emotions to the end.
Sexy, fun, mysterious. A sure fire winner you won't be able to put down. It's a fabulous book that I highly recommend.

Jules is a war photographer who is shell shocked and combat weary in more ways than one. Completely shut down on life, hiding away in her apartment, her only ray of life is Max, her faithful dog, till one day, a walk in the park changes everything. Stumbling into what she first thinks is a fight, she is soon embroiled in a life or death game where she doesn't know who is good or bad, and she has to look deep within herself to gather the strength to figure it out. Sam, her kidnapper turned saviour, is a guy who sees right through her, figures her out and winds her into his heart, turn by turn.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The slow burning romance (very slow in places, I was desperate for them to make out for the first half of the book, ha ha!) is a great central theme for the fast paced, complex story that made me very scared that they would not make it on several occasions. I loved the character Sam, burly, soft, tough, gentle: he is the ultimate hero you want to take home to the folks, if such a person exists. Loved this book, and thrilled to hear it is a trilogy, which makes it three times as good.
