Editorial Reviews


Odell follows 2010's When Dangers Calls with this sizzling suspense tale ... Romance fans will drool over Dalton and his fellow camo-clad helicopter-riding commandos as they look for runaways and love. --Publishers Weekly

Within the first few pages you're hooked and off a heart-pounding ride of adventures, suspense, intrigue, and undeniable romance. Where Danger Hides is an adrenaline rush that will capture your heart. ... Pamela Purcell, editor --The Chatooga Press

"Winner, Holt Medallion 2012 , Best Romantic Suspense" -- Virginia Romance Writers

From the Author

How the story began - at peek at my writing process:

Because WHERE DANGER HIDES Is a book connected to another, there were some characters who were already established. Dalton appears in When Danger Calls, but he wasn't fully fleshed out (I didn't know his first name in that one), and since I didn't know he was going to demand his own book, I didn't bother with too many details. At this phase, I do try to consider the all-important GMC: Goal, Motivation and Conflict, so I'll list some of those possibilities as well.
You're now invited to step inside my head and see where the book began. And, of course, if you want to see how much of this actually ended up in the book, you know where to go to find out.

Format: Hardcover
Terry Odell continues her series Blackthorne, Inc. with Ambrose Dalton, called Cowboy by his team of covert ops. On a routine mission to verify information on a potential client, he interrupts an unknown woman in the client's bedroom. Before he can question her, she slips away, and unbeknown to him has lifted his wallet. The next day when he reports to his boss, he finds his wallet on the desk and the woman, Miri Chambers, at the meeting as well. He is assigned to help her find what has happened to clients of Galloway House that have gone missing.

Galloway House provides places for the homeless, teaches skills, and feeds many more. Miri has no way to know what happens to missing people if she doesn't hear from them. Sometimes, they don't give their real names. Once a resident herself, Miri has taken on the mission of saving these people. However, when a meth lab nearby explodes, a resident claims to have seen one of the missing former residents on the scene.

Dalton's efforts have found information on two of the residents, now deceased, but nothing on the rest. Then, a current resident is arrested for buying allergy meds under a false id and that raises questions whether the others had done the same thing or worked in the illegal meth labs.

A former Blackthorne source alerts Dalton about her suspicions of Andrew Patterson, a rich philanthropist, building community housing for migrant workers near the Mexican border. Miri's brother-in-law has accepted an assignment there. Then, Miri gets a call from him that her sister is missing. She had gone south with her husband to help with a community center.

Odell provides a lot of sexual tension and enough hot sex to please avid romance readers. It takes front and center in the novel, but eventually the mystery of the missing people leads to a major crime operation. An exciting climax should satisfy the most demanding thriller readers.

Format: Hardcover
The novel is a suspenseful thriller with a healthy dose of romance. Or maybe it's a romantic thriller with a good deal of suspense that keeps the story moving at a sometimes alarming pace. "Where Danger Hides" is both, and it's also a fantasy in particular in the way and the speed with which the two principal characters are drawn together.

Miri Chambers is the caretaker and overseerer of a San Francisco shelter primarily for abused women. Galoway House also manages to shelter and care for a number of children and men, as well. There's a lot more to Miri Chambers. She is adept at disguise, light-fingered and as prickly as one can get. Two wrong words and she is liable to go off like a rocket. That propensity for shoot-from-the-hip judgments and attitude may also be the reason for her nearly unbelieveable hormonal response to the hunk she meets on a clandestine foray into the home office of a wealthy art patron.

Her reaction to "just" Dalton isn't much different from his. He works for a private security firm that has a large well-funded and mostly covert group of operatives working well outside the usual legal limits. Dalton, one of Blackthorn's elite black ops operatives has an appreciated eye for female anatomy, wherever he finds it, including hiding under the desk of the aforementioned wealthy San Francisco Art patron.

Dalton and Miri Chambers are all fire and sparks and hot sex throughout this rollicking novel. The author has created a pair of characters who could each carry the novel solo, but when you pair them, look out.

The action carries Dalton and Chambers from posh and elegant settings to gritty exceedingly dangerous operations. Readers are not likely to predict each succeeding move.

I enjoyed this book as well as the other Blackthorne, Inc books. I liked the fact the main woman character wasn't super model beautiful but was valued as such. I really got into the mystery and couldn't wait to find out whodoneit.

The latest in Terry Odell's Blackthorne, Inc.'s series revolves around covert ops team member Ambrose Dalton and Miri Chambers who works for a homeless shelter called Galloway House.

Dalton and Miri first meet at a reception one of Blackthorne's potential clients is having and Miri, who is an expert pick pocket, picks Dalton's wallet which leads her to Blackthorne, Inc.

Miri is concerned about several residents of Galloway House who have gone missing and Dalton has been assigned to help Miri locate them. This is no easy task since many of the residents do not give their real names. This assignment does not go over well with Dalton since he would rather be out of the country on a covert operation. However, his dislike for this assignment doesn't last long when he starts to fall head over heals in love with Miri who is having the same feelings for Dalton.

There are several twists and turns not only in their investigation which eventually ends up in a covert operation but also in their relationship.

I very much enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.

This is book 2 in the Blackthorne, Inc. series. We met Dalton in the last book, a laid back texan with a wonderful texas drawl. Dalton has a vendetta against a drug lord, and Miri Chambers is a social worker at a half way house. Dalton and Fozzie ( a really funny Aussie) are at a fund raiser, to prove a point to a potential client that his security system needs upgrading. Miri is there in disguise to steal a background report on her sister. However, Miri what Miri copies off of the computer is more than just a background report. And when she gets caught by Dalton and Fozzie, not only does she give them both the slip, she pickpockets Dalton's wallet, besides. AND she tracks down Dalton's real place of work, at Blackthorne Inc. Miri is concerned that some of her halfway house residents ( women seeking some type of domestic abuse shelter) are disappearing. Horace Blackthorne assigns Dalton to help her find the people. What follows is a story of domestic abuse, drug dealing and drug lords. Again, same as with the first book, it drags right around the middle. Other than that, it was a book that draws you in, and is a suspenseful, danger filled book. Not too much romance, but it will keep you reading.
