A snow storm keeps them prisoner inside this house with a dead man. Sarah has her own agenda. She is there to find coins that she can give to her mom who has a bookie on her back but Sarah doesn’t want to tell Nate that. She just wants to get the money and run.

The suspense keeps you guessing till Alice wants you to know. Lots of drama, action, mystery and even a treasure hunt. Their is a love scene that I skipped over. Some violence.

I liked Nate Matthews. He is a good guy hero all the way. He does not know what he wants right now.

Sarah Donovan character you are not sure what she is hiding. She is a strong character, with a mystery about her.

Nate is meeting two friends in Nevada. He is delayed getting their but his friends are even later. The w

This was a fast paced story with action, and bullets. The suspense was really good, but not drawn out. The story also had romance between Sarah, and Nate.

Sarah was working against the clock. Sarah's mother had a gambling addiction, and owed money to the wrong people. Sarah only had a fe

In Sharpe’s romantic suspense novel, deputy sheriff Nate Matthews arrives in Nevada to see a friend only to find him very dead. As he takes in the scene of the crime, he finds himself held at gunpoint by the victim’s daughter, Sarah Donovan. While she denies any involvement in the death of her father, it’s clear that something’s not right with her. Before Nate can decipher everything, he and Sarah are dodging bullets. On the run for their lives, they find new emotions erupting and a determinatio ...more

*** I have received an ARC via NetGalley ***

"Shattered" is a well written romantic suspense novel and I loved the witty banters between Nate and Sarah!
While Nate and Sarah have their own "struggles" (Nate discovers his murdered friend and Sarah pointing a rifle at him), there's another plot with more than one twists going on... I'm not going to spoiler you, but the ending surprised me and turned out completely different than I expected!

It is not a fluffy romance book; especially Sarah has a diff

I was born in Sacramento, California. As a child, I wrote plays for the neighbor kids and invited their parents to performances. As I got older, I started my own family newspaper, handwritten and hand delivered, for the extortion price of 25 cents. Eventually, I moved into writing angst-ridden poems and journals – lots of them. Right after graduating from high school, I married the love of my life ...more
