I'm not much of a hist..."


I haven't read Clare's historicas either, but thought I would soon. I know they're all coming out on kindle (some are available now) and plan to do that since she re-edited them and replaced material that publishers removed to to length requirements,etc.

Anyhoo...I don't ahve anything to say except "HI!" I haven't "seen" you in a while. ;-)

2756 From Pamela Clare's website:
Q. Do you plan to write more I-Team books?
A: Absolutely. Breaking Point came out on May 3 and did very well, so I plan to do two or three more I-Team books. Watch my blog for updates. I know a lot of you love Holly — I do, too — but I'm saving Horny Holly for last. In the meantime, that leaves Natalie’s replacement on the I-Team, as well as Joaquin. I might do a spin-off featuring Megan, Marc’s little sister, who endured so much and deserves her own happily ever after (HEA). There will be an I-Team novella or two to enjoy. For those of you who don’t know, there is one I-Team novella available as an ebook on Amazon.com and B&N. Titled “Heaven Can’t Wait,” it tells Lissy and Will’s story.

2756 Just started a trilogy from Pauline Baird Jones. the trilogy is called The Lonesome Lawmen, and the first book is The Last Enemy by Pauline Baird Jones. I've read one sci-fi romance by Jones and loved it (The Key). She writes drama and action laced with humor.

So far The Last Enemy is starting out with a bang, so I'm hopeful! ;-) I like finding new authors that I "click" with.

2756 Just started Out Of Her League (Suspense Series, #1). It's been on my TBR list for a year!

2756 "Please tell me the hero in book 2 isn't perfect. Reece just seemed perfect (kara even mentions this once or twice)".

Reece gets to be a little too much, I agree! None of the other heroes are this perfect. In fact, some aren't even very nice, at least at first. I didn't like the hero of Naked Edge at first. Julian (bk 2) and Marc (bk 3) are great, flawed heroes, and their relationship after book two is fun.

:-) Well, everyone has their own tastes. There are plenty of books people rave about that I just can't get into, like the Outlander series. A week or so ago All About Romance (www.likesbooks.com) posted two reviews of the same book in one day, Dangerous in Diamonds. One reviewer gave it an A- and one reviewer gave it a D+. Both reviewers write regularly for AAR. You may or may not enjoy Clare's suspense while someone else may think they're the best around. Viva la difference!

2756 Nisha, it's worth reading them in order. Not that the stories themselves have to be read that way, but the relationship between the people will make more sense and be more satisfying. Plus, books 2 ad 3 might be the best, although I've enjoyed them all. I agree Extreme Exposure is the weakest, but I still thought it better than a lot of what passes for romantic suspense. Breaking Point is suspenseful, plus we get to see the earlier characters since they play a significant roll later in the book.

Now I understand about the bad timing of my question. LOL."


I just finished and I really enjoyed it. It is crazy that you hadn't even started the book yet, and your question came while I was between Ch 1 and Ch 6! If I'd read the post 30 minutes later I probably wouldn't have thought a thing about it! :-D

But we're good, and the info ended up having no effect on the plot. I know you;ll enjoy the rest of the book. Very emotional!

2756 Pamela Clare's I-Team series which starts with Extreme Exposure. Elisabeth Naughton's series which I think starts with Stolen Fury (or is it Stolen Heat....).

Deadly Fear by Cynthia Eden is very good. I haven't read the next one in that series yet.

I also like:
Marliss Melton's SEAL Team 12 books
Cindy Gerard's Bodyguard books
All of Laura Griffin's books. She has several short (2 and 3 book) series, but the short series are sometimes tied together in some way. her website might be the best way to tease them apart. She's a great author, imo.
Geralyn Dawson's Callahan Bros trilogy
Debra Webb's the Less series
Kathyrn Shay's Firefighter Trilogy is awesome. It starts with After the Fire.

I'm sorry. I have only read books 1-4..."


LOL! My apologies, then! I'm so sorry, but this is amusing in a quirky way. Now I'm the one inadvertently giving spoilers. Like UniquelyMoi said, you'll understand once you read the first part of Breaking Point.

Again, I'm sorry. I sometimes read ahead, so even when I get spoilers it usually doesn't interfere with my reading pleasure.

Since I've eaten my share of humble pie tonight, I'll go change into jammies and get back to reading BP. ;-)

Ouch, Giddyup! That's a spoiler. I'm only on Ch 2 so...well.. ;-) Since I posted on this thread I automatically get an update when anyone posts, so I have no way if knowing if there are spoilers. I'll survive, but a spoiler warning at the top of your post might be good.

Thanks!

2756 I'm not reading a romantic suspense right now (I'm reading Crystal Flame- and older sci-fi/fantasy by Jayne Ann Krentz) but I just preordered Breaking Point by Pamela Clare. I also have Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts on top of my stack of to-reads.

Yeah, I saw that. You can usually get it used, though, if you have a decent UBS around. My library had it, so that was good.

2756 Ellis~ I've only read Morning Glory by LaVyrle Spencer, but it was excellent!

2756 Tanith, FYI, I gather you know this from the discussion above, but I'm talking about liking the Callahan Bros Trilogy, which starts with Give Him the Slip. I haven't read the enw books.

2756 Tanith~

I gave most of Gerard's books 4 stars and all three of Dawson's books 4 stars. They aren't necessarily similar in writing style, but they are both satisfying romantic suspense. Dawson's trilogy might have a little stronger romance emphasis, but both authors are good. I haven't read Adair so I can't compare.

2756 I thought "Callahan Carol" was poorly written, even though I loved Dawson's Callahan Bros books. Based on "Callahan Carol" I've decided to skip the Emily Marsh books. Especially when I heard the Callahan clan doesn't figure into the first book. If she wanted an angsty book about redemption and healing, you'd think there was an amazing amount of potential with John's family. They should be in the mix at least in some (large) part, imo. Since I enjoyed the other books so much, I decided to stop where I am and dream up my own ending for John after we meet him in "Callahan Carol."

2756 Dallas and Amy get their book in #6, Into the Dark.

2756 Stephanie- I would suggest her earlier books. They seem to be a little heavier on the romance aspect. No Regrets was probably my favorite. Her latest RS, Love You to Death, was a little creepier because it let you into the mind of the serial killer.
Mar 21, 2011 01:54PM

2756 I realize my answer before may seem contradictory. What I meant was, the books are NOT just suspense with romantic elements, they have a strong romance plotline as well as a suspense. On the other hand, they are suspense books, and the suspense plot is not just there as filler for the romance. The books are pretty well balanced that way.
