Part of our reasoning to do this is I belong to a virtual writing colony known as OpenSim, where we try to bring fiction to virtual life. Nara Malone, Shannan Albright, and I have always wanted to merge the two worlds, virtual users and real world readers. We also want to bring more attention to the Indie authors we love to read. With so many books out there now it's hard to figure out what is a good, well-written book...or not. Keep in mind, these are our opinions, things we like to read. The Nookettes of the Virtual writing colony of Nara's Nook have come up with this blog hop to share our favorites.
My first offering is RICOCHET by Kris Norris. Here's the blurb:
A moment he can’t take back…
An unlucky rebound has left US Marshal Ashton Kane broken. His partner’s dead and, consumed by guilt, he’s walked out on the only woman he’ll ever love.
A love she can’t forget…
Cassidy Ryan has tried to move on. Losing the love of her life cut deep, but she vowed she wouldn’t let it break her. And she’s finally taking back her life—until she stumbles upon a deadly encounter that threatens to destroy everything and everyone around her.
One last chance at redemption…
Ash has fooled himself into believing Cassidy’s better off without him—until she puts her life on the line, forcing him to face the demons that still whisper in the dark—or risk losing her. Again. Only this time, it’ll be no one’s fault, but his.
I'm a big fan of romantic suspense, no matter what time frame it's set in or whether the characters are human, and Kris writes some fantastic romantic suspense. Her voice is down-to-earth and real, meaning the dialog flows like real people talking to each other. In addition, she has a great gift for building up the tension until you've chewed your nails down to the quick. Kris also writes sci-fi and paranormal, both of which are good, too. But it's the element of romantic suspense that makes me pick up more and more of her books. This is a kind of story that makes you want the hero and heroine to get together, while simultaneously wanting to smack them up the sides of the head. Great read, smart dialog, intense suspense. Happy reading!
