That term should never be used again in any type of book.

Isabelle Carson refused to believe that so many of her friends have committed suicide. The survivor of a particularly seedy and foul foster home and vile foster father, Isabelle has strived to make something of herself and has done so. But so did her friends that have died. Knowing there is a connection and scared that she is next, Isabelle contacts the one man that saved her so long ago - Grant Kent. She knows calling him is a long shot but feels he needs to be warned. If her friends are dying, he could be next. She didn't count on Grant showing up on her doorstep willing to help her.

Grant Kent has never forgotten Isabelle Carson. Finally retired after many years in Delta Force, he is looking forward to his new occupation as a security consultant. Hearing a voice from so long ago asking him to be careful, Grant knows Isabelle is spooked and decides to pay her a visit, which in turn becomes so much more than just looking up an old friend.

Grant refuses to leave Isabelle, even if he is in danger, much to her dismay. If there is anything Grant is trained for, it is this dangerous situation. The feelings he has for Isabelle are new to him, but he is willing to see where their relationship leads.

As with her previous two books, Shannon K. Butcher treats readers to an outstanding romantic suspense. The mystery surrounding Isabelle, as well as the intriguing plot, gained my attention and never wavered. Add in steamy and romantic love scenes and I was unable to put NO ESCAPE down. Fast paced, suspenseful, and sensual - NO ESCAPE has it all and I, for one, am a die hard fan of this talented author.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
I love this author's writing style for romantic suspense. I would have given it 5 stars if the author would have used different reasons for separation and conflict between the hero and heroine. I describe these conflict methods under Spoilers below. Aside from that, the characters were neat. The story was good and well developed. The bad guy was cunning, scary and successful with his murders. He would spray his victims with a substance that caused immediate paralysis of all their muscles, but it only lasted for a matter of minutes, long enough for him to tie them up and do some things.

Warning for sensitive readers: the story includes a lot of death and violence.

STORY BRIEF:
Edgar Lavine was a foster parent to a group of kids. He sexually abused almost all of them. As a teen, Grant was assigned to the home. Shortly after arriving, Grant saw Edgar begin to rape Isabelle. Grant pulled Edgar off and killed him. Grant was taken by the police afterwards. Grant was in the military special forces for a number of years and recently left the military to start another job. Isabelle sent Christmas cards to Grant over the years. All of a sudden, some of the foster kids, now grown up, are dying. The police believe they are suicides. Isabelle believes they were murdered. She contacts Grant asking for his help.

CAUTION SPOILERS:
As soon as they become intimate, Isabelle wants to push Grant out of her life because she believes he is going to leave, and she doesn't want to be hurt by him later. She has only been around him for a couple of days, and she believes he doesn't want the kind of life she wants. She's not giving it a chance. Besides, in the end he did want that kind of life.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the third in the series about Delta Force operatives, following No Regrets and No Control. They're connected books, but they stand alone, so there's no problem with reading out of order. I'd highly recommend reading all of them, though--they're excellent.

Elementary school teacher Isabelle Carson grew up in foster homes. Three of her former foster-siblings have died--suicides, according to the police, but Isabelle thinks that's too many for coincidence. And she knew them--they weren't suicidal.

Worried, she contacts the others who were in the home with them, including Grant Kent, who'd saved her from their abusive foster father years ago.

Grant, a Delta Force vet, has a couple of days before starting his new job with his friend David's (from No Regrets) security company, so he decides to visit Isabelle to see what her message was all about... and because he hasn't been able to get her out of his mind. He figured he'd take a couple of hours, straighten things out for her, and be on his way.

Instead, he finds Isabelle and himself, and the rest of their former foster-siblings the targets of a ruthless killer, and he can't leave.

He also can't stay. Isabelle is realizing her dream of being a foster parent herself, and Grant knows he's not father material. But the longer he stays, the harder it is to resist Isabelle, and the closer he gets to Isabelle's foster son Dale.

No Escape puts the "suspense" in "romantic suspense." The chilling prologue sets the stage, and the pace and suspense don't let up until the end of the last chapter.
