Where There's Fire by Maureen McKade

Another tortured hero served up for our delectation! “Where There’s Fire” is my first contemporary romantic suspense by Maureen McKade. I didn’t realize that I had recently read one of her historical romance novels until I was typing this review and my fingers remembered the name. Then, of course, I had to check out why and bingo! Now, I find myself comparing her writing styles and realizing that there are many similarities. Not so strange, I guess, but still.

Taking the Heat by Kathryn Shay

This is a very difficult review to write. “Taking the Heat” by Kathryn Shay was a heart-wrenching read. Shay has written a very gritty and powerful book about the difficulties people face every day when they are involved in relationships with our heroes: public officials, law enforcement, military, and firefighters. I almost hesitate to call it a romance, though it certainly does tell the story of two people coming together. But this is a view of the harsher side of the story, more realistic if you like. If you’re looking for hearts and flowers and a light read, this is definitely not the book for you.

SEALed with a Kiss by Mary Margret Daughtridge

What an incredibly powerful book! I confess I’d heard positive buzz on a few Internet sites about this book, but I wasn’t prepared for the read I got. Stories about SEALs and other elite military forces are very popular these days. I confess that I don’t usually run out to buy these; primarily because many of them tend to pass over the incredible sacrifices these men and women make everyday. In “SEALed with a Kiss,” Mary Margret Daughtridge has done a stellar job writing a realistic romance without trying to sugarcoat the difficulties inherent in any military relationship.
