An Instant Favorite!,
This review is from: Fade the Heat (Mass Market Paperback)
Romantic suspense is a broad description-perhaps broader than it should be, considering some of the stories that carry this label-but if you want to read a book that's the very definition of "romantic suspense," then look no further than Colleen Thompson's FADE THE HEAT. Without sacrificing the action or the emotion, she masterfully weaves a suspense plot that never lets up with a tender, oh-so-believable romance between two satisfyingly original characters.
Jack Montoya and Reagan Hurley are strong, larger-than-life heroes with touching vulnerabilities that make them seem so real that you'll root for them to the very end and keep a soft spot for them in your heart long after you finish the book. (OK, especially for Dr. Jack, a gorgeous physician who saves sick children, works at a small clinic in a dangerous neighborhood instead of at a fat-cat medical practice, and loves his mama and his sister. Could he be more scrumptious?!)
You'll enjoy not only the twists and turns of the intricately-crafted plot and the sweet build-up of romantic tension, but also the vivid detail of the Houston setting. Just as in the enthralling FATAL ERROR, Thompson deftly uses the backdrop to make her story and the characters in it feel like very real people fighting real problems and finding, of course, real love-but make no mistake: it's a love that they'll have to fight for.
I highly recommend this amazing book, and unless you want to go into work late and/or tired, I also recommend buying it now and saving it for the weekend because once you get started, it's impossible to put FADE THE HEAT down until you reach the very end!
