Book Description

"The best new romantic suspense voice of 2012!" ~Debra Webb, bestselling author of the Faces of Evil series

A witness on the run, an investigator who refuses to give up on her...

The sole witness to murder, Nicole Livingston has been living a shadow of the life she once dreamed of. When her apartment building goes up in flames, she sees a chance to escape her protected identity and reclaim life on her terms. But her plan goes awry when a handsome stranger intervenes, offering assistance she didn't know she needed.

A former Special Forces soldier, Rick Dreyer is a surveillance expert able to recognize trouble in any guise and his simple assignment turns inside out when his target is suddenly attacked. With threats closing in and no one to trust, Rick vows to save her.

But will he lose his heart in the process?

For more romantic suspense from V.R. Marks and the RC Investigations team, pick up The Thief and The Hostage today.

4.0 out of 5 stars packed with suspense and romance and great characters November 8, 2012
By Cindy O
Format:Kindle Edition
The Witness is packed with suspense and romance and great characters and hooks you from the first page.

This book takes place during the same time as the first book The Thief. Rick Dryer who works for his friend's private security company RC Investigations was sent to check on Nicole who worked with Allie at a pharmaceutical firm. When Allie has to go into hiding based on evidence she finds out on her boss she is worried for Nicole's safety and Rick is sent to make sure she is ok. When he arrives he finds her apartment building in flames. After seeing a gang member trying to sabotage a ladder she was taking Rick decides he needs to get Nicole out of there for her safety.

From here the two of them are on the run for most of the book. Seems Nicole has ghosts from her own past coming after her. Rick scrambles to figure out just who is really after Nicole but she doesn't make it easy with keeping her secrets close to the vest. He also struggles with his attraction to her since he hasn't allowed himself to feel anything since his wife died and the guilt he feels because of her death.

You are pretty much on the edge of you seat from the opening scene to the end of the book as these two try to not only avoid getting killed but try to figure out who is behind everything.

As with the first book Eve helps out from the RC base. Hoping we find out more in Eve's book which is next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Awesome Book by V.R. Marks November 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second book in V.R. Marks, RC Investigations Series. This takes place during the same timeline as the first book, but following the adventures of Rick Dryer and Nicole Livingston. As we discovered in the first Book, Rick works for Ross and was sent to check up on Allie's friend Nicole.

While reading the first book, The Thief, I had wondered a few times why we didn't learn more about Rick and his investigation of Nicole. V.R. Marks gave just enough info in the first book to leave readers satisfied without giving away anything from the second one. My hats off to you, Mr. Marks, very clever!!

And once again, we are taken on a non-stop roller coaster ride. From the moment I started this book, till I turned that last page, it was non-stop adventure. Not even my chest and head cold kept me from reading this book. Who needs sleep when you are sick!

I'm so looking forward to the third book in this series, which will be Eve's story. I can't wait to see what clever twists Mr. Marks will have in store for us this time.

The second book in the series was just as great as the first! I love the quick wit and the edge of your seat suspense. V.R. has hooked me and I am so excited to read Eva's book next! I was a little sad that this one ended so soon. I wanted more time with Rick and Nicole!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first in the series March 9, 2013
By Puppie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read three of V.R. Marks books and I liked this one the best so far.

The characters were entertaining. In the beginning there was a fire, the apartment of the main character was burning....and she was climbing a rope ladder to get in to the burning inferno. Is she climbing into her apartment or someone elses? What is so important??? You will never in a million years guess what she went in after. And she is being watched, and not just by one person....

Some of the characters were just left along the way as the book went on...I think some tidying up between the main and minor characters would have given the book a little more polish.

I look forward to reading more of V.R. Marks books

4.0 out of 5 stars Weakest in series December 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book after enjoying the previous entries in this series. This book is the weakest in the series. Having said that, I still found this book to be an enjoyable, worthwhile read. After the first third of the book the story picked up the pace and kept up the adventure until the last page. I will look forward to this author's next offering.
