Review originally posted here:

When Sorenson asked for a review I was pretty excited to read her contribution. I’ve enjoyed her suspense books in the past and was looking forward to seeing what she could do with a short story. It wasn’t until I finished reading both stories that I found out the Brockmann story was re-released from an older Silhouette book. There were probably about twenty times I thought about quitting mid-way through her contribution, but
short but intense romantic suspense story. Paige is a wildlife photographer living in the mountains of California. There's a huge snowstorm coming but she's ready for it. As the storm starts a large tree branch falls onto the road and she heads out to remove it before some unwary motorist runs into it. Just as she's getting ready to move it a large SUV comes tearing around the corner and she's sure she's about to get run over. The driver manages to avoid her, but crashes into the lake. He's unc ...more
Review for Scenes of Peril - Jill Sorenson

This was a awesome novella. I usually don't like novella's because I always feel like the story is rushed and sometimes key info is lacking. But I didn't feel this way at the end of Scenes of Peril. I really love how Jill's characters are so relatable, real and they always have great chemistry. In short it, was a great little read!

Look here for those of Scenes of Passion by Suzanne Brockmann

This was a rather short, though sweet and nicely written story. The characters were interesting. There could have been more demonstration regarding their past and characters, with a longer story, but as it was with this short format, it worked and did not leave the lead characters looking too much like caricatures. The plot was ok, though I

Two super-fun short stories by two superb authors! Suzanne Brockmann never fails to deliver a fun, fast-paced, and sexy romance...and this story was fantastic! Matthew is a delightful character--sexy and strong and a true gentleman. Maggie is a bit of a basket-case, but totally comes together in the end.

Jill Sorenson wrote a clever romantic thriller, complete with sexy hunk Colin, and intelligent & capable Paige. I enjoyed their cabin-in-the-woods antics & satisfying ending.

3.5 stars, rounded up.

Why I read it: I received a review copy from the author. This brand new novella is being packaged with a re-release Silhouette title from Suzanne Brockmann called Scenes of Passion. The anthology is called Passion and Peril and releases on November 26.

What worked for me (and what didn’t): While I thought the beginning of the story was a little overdone (too many exclamation marks), things really picked up in chapter two. Paige and Colin had a lot of things in common and t

I reviewed Scenes of Peril by Jill Sorenson. This was my first sampling of Jill's work and I must say, I really enjoyed this novella. Scenes of Peril is a well paced novella that strands two people who long for more substance in their life, together during a snowstorm. When Colin swerves on an icy road to avoid Paige he plunges into the river, hitting his head in the process. Paige successfully pulls him out and manages to get him back up the embankment, across the street and into her house. Def ...more
Scenes of Passion - Brockmann

Woof, what a stinker. At first I thought I had a Crusie readalike on my hands - banter! flirting! wacky families! a heroine coming into her own! But then things just went downhill. You see, Maggie can't trust Matt because he was such a good actor in high school. You know, in high school musicals. Also, I respect that some authors write heroes with long hair (as is the case here) even though I pretend that isn't happening when I read them. But this - this turns into a

Review for Scenes of Peril...

Paige Dawson is a professional photographer. After being burned by her ex, she's very leery about establishing any sort of relationship with a man beyond a casual fling. She's holed up in her mountain cabin, and when a car goes into the lake while swerving to avoid her while she's bringing a tree limb off the road, she ends up saving a hottie by the name of Colin Reid. The opening scene is full of action and Paige ends of bringing Colin back to her house to wait out

Scenes of Passion - Brockmann

I could have liked this story cause' I adore anything Brockmann but, I didn't. Maggie annoyed me, I felt bad for Matt, I wanted to reach through the imaginary phone line and punch Angie.

Sorry, not at all what I expected.

Scenes of Peril - Sorenson

This one surprised me, I liked the story, the characters, the chemistry and the ending.

Review: Scenes of Passion by S.B. I absolutely hate giving two stars and a bad review to S.B., who is one of my favorite writers and I always love her books. I didn't realize this was an old Harloqueen romance. I found it lacking her typical military romance excitement, this story was just boring.

Passion and Peril is comprised of an old Suzanne Brockmann title and a new Jill Sorenson title. The Brockmann story is one of her early category titles. It is not romantic suspense, so it represents the passion in the title. The story is well-written and moves forward quickly. Maggie, the heroine, is not as strong as many of her later heroines. In the end she does stand up for what she wants.

Sorenson’s title represents the peril. Paige and Colin, the hero and heroine, are believable and fully de
I must rate anything I stay up until 3 am reading at least four stars.
Scenes of Passion by Suzanne Brockmann- 1 star
Scenes of Peril by Jill Sorenson- 2 stars

I received the book as a giveaway to read, it arrive on a Monday and I was going to wait until the weekend to start reading but I opened the book started reading and could not put it down. I wanted to see what was going to happen between Maggie and Matt. So much has happen to them since they saw each other. Well written but I wish they would of at the end do a paragraph for 5 years down the road to see how they were doing.
Nicole Luiken
I read the Suzanne Brockmann book years ago, so bought this for the Jill Sorenson novella, Scenes of Peril. A quick, hot read. The beginning and ending were action-packed, and the middle had the snowbound-with-a-hot-guy trope going for it. I especially enjoyed the photography scenes.
Mandi Schreiner
DNF'd the Suzanne Brockman story at 50% because I didn't like the heroine or what was happening in the story.

I liked the Jill Sorenson story - a little too much drama towards the end but the romance was nice.

My review:
The story by Jill Sorenson was OK, but the other by Suzanne Brockmann was terrible; I skimmed most of it.
Four stars for Scenes of Passion by Suzanne Brockmann; three stars for Scenes of Peril by Jill Sorenson.
I now remember why I stopped reading contemporary romances.
