Book Description

Her luck may have just run out . . .

Dedicated family attorney Amanda "Mandy" Newman may have survived an attempted drowning and, along with co-workers, just won the biggest lottery in history, but before she can collect, the ticket is stolen. Now, her co-workers are being murdered one by one.

She needs help, and that puts her between a rock and a hard man—the brother of a co-worker.

DEA officer Zack Taylor was a one-night stand who'd turned into so much more. Now that his family and Mandy are in danger, he is back in the picture. The attraction between them still simmers; Zack can feel it. But can he resist his desire for her long enough to discover her secret?

With her life on the line, the attraction between them should be kept on ice. After all, under the circumstances, a kiss could be deadly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting premise done in a unique way August 11, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Most people have fantasized at one point or another about winning the lottery. When they do, they tend to think of all the good things that can come from it.

Kiss Me Deadly is about a group of women who work in a law office who win the lottery, but their joy becomes short-lived as one by one, they are targeted. The women decide they need protection. The main character, Mandy, is given a former bodyguard, brother to her partner Dana, and former lover, Zack. Mandy and Zack had a child together a few years ago, but Zack doesn't know that. So as they try to keep Mandy (and her partners) alive, Mandy has to decide if she can trust Zach with her life, her child and her love.

This book really keeps you intrigued, between the storyline about why the women are targeted, and the love affair between Zach and Mandy. The love scenes are nice, not overly done. And every emotion and action is well-defined, so what they do seems to make sense. I hate it when books have characters behaving in ways that don't make sense. If you like suspense and intrigue, try this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Winning money can be murder. August 16, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Amanda "Mandy" Newman is a lawyer. She practices family law and has been dealing with many divorce cases recently. So when a man in a white truck begins riding her bumper, Mandy figures the driver is drunk, near sited, or the husband of someone she represented out to scare her. But all bets were off when the truck rams her vehicle three times, sending her crashing and sinking into the Hillsborough River (which flows out into Tampa Bay). Thoughts of her one-year-old daughter, Gabby, gives Mandy the needed mental and physical strength to survive.

Things begin looking up when Mandy learns that the Powerball jackpot ticket she and some of her coworkers purchased won. They now have three hundred and sixty million dollars to divide between them. (Sixty million dollars each.) Then someone stole the ticket. One by one Mandy's coworkers are being attacked. Mandy has no choice but to wonder if her near brush with a watery grave had anything to do with the ticket. Each person gets bodyguards, which Mandy thinks is a good idea until she learns that her bodyguard is Zachary "Zach" Taylor. The man who does not know he has a daughter. The man who told her that he never wanted kids or a family.

Zach and Mandy had a one night together before he disappeared into his next assignment. Zach is a DEA agent and often goes deep undercover. He is currently on leave, due to a death in his last mission, so when his sister, Dana, calls him to be Mandy's bodyguard he agrees. Though Zach never phoned or wrote Mandy after that night, he has been unable to forget her. They are soon kept busy, dodging a killer who seems determined to kill her.

**** I found this to be a wonderful romantic suspense story. I have no doubts readers will be hanging on the edge of their seats at some points. I certainly did. Author Susan Kearney proves that she knows suspense, whether in space or in Florida. Encore! ****

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars August 30, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Winning the largest lottery in U.S. history should be a dream come true for Mandy and the other women in the lotto pool, but life has turned into a nightmare as one by one, the members are attacked and or killed. The danger forces her to turn to the one man she most wants and most wants to avoid, Zack Taylor, a sexy DEA agent who she once loved, but who left her. Yet, with her life on the line and her child in danger, trust issues and secrets are of secondary importance.

**** Ms. Kearney has found her niche; when writing romantic suspense, she truly shines. Though some scenes seemed a bit too hot, especially under the circumstances, her pacing and ability to evoke suspense is spot on. This is a quick, compelling read that leads you through a labyrinth of intrigue at a heart-stopping pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Romantic Suspense! July 31, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book I have read by this author, I don't read many paranormal books, but reading this may make me go to her other books. This was a great romantic suspense book that keeps you guessing. I thought both characters were well written and the romance between them a great addition to the story. I loved how Mandy's priorities always remained with her daughter and that she was strong for her. The mystery was great and you didn't really know where the danger was coming from. I am looking forward to Susan Kearny's next Romantic Suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kiss Me Deadly April 28, 2013
By deb
Format:Kindle Edition
From the intriguing cover to the suspense and sexual tension that grows bigger by the page. This book is sizzling. From the first page to the last Zack and Mandy prevail. Who would of thought that winning the lottery could get a person into so much trouble? You will be sucked in hook, line, sinker, and be up all night until it's finished.

A predictable but entertaining story. The characters are anguished, as so often is the case, but very likeable. It's a good book to curl up with on a rainy day.
