Megan Summers is a wonderful heroine - sharp, funny and brave, the sort of girl you'd love to have as a best friend. Maureen Miller creates a wonderful setting around the remote village with weather so temperamental you

A frightened woman with a GLOCK, a man looking for answers and the secrets that connect them is the premise behind the romantic suspense ENDLESS NIGHT by Maureen A. Miller.

Megan Summers is the recluse that lives alone at Wakefield House in the small town of Victory Cove. She rents the large victorian house nestled on an isolated cliff far from town and only has minimal contact with the local residents. Her cover story is that she is an author and likes her privacy, but the truth is she is a fri

I didn’t enjoy this one as much as I’d hoped to. I thought it would be more suspenseful than it ended up being, and sadly, I was relieved when I had finally finished it.

After witnessing a murder Megan Summers has spent the last year on the run but no matter how far she goes she can’t escape the taunting phone calls “I know where you are Margaret.” Living in a secluded house in a remote town she has spent the last year by herself, but when a tall dark stranger knocks on her door can Megan trust

Single sentence summary: Jake never really cared that he was adopted but when he receives a letter from a women stating to be his mother and that he needs to talk to his grandmother, he knows he needs to find out happened to the women who gave birth to him.

This is an enjoyable romantic suspense novel where Jake’s story is only part of the plot. The major part of it is really about Megan and the fact that she witnessed a murder a year ago and has been running ever since. I liked Megan’s character

Very good romantic suspense. The beginning was a bit bumpy for me but once the story hit its stride I had a hard time putting it down.

Megan and Jake are very likable characters and they felt real. I liked that the author used both of their points of view so that as the reader you know much more than either one and can see how easy you can make mistakes when you only have certain information.

I loved that the ending was not what I thought it was going to be. I was actually a little afraid I was go

Fantastic Romantic Suspense

She witnessed a powerful man commit cold blooded murder, then fled when he turned the gun on her. Horrified, terrified for her life, she ran to the police, only to come face to face with proof that powerful men have long reaches. Megan Summers did the only thing she could do, she disappeared. Since then she's been hiding in the remotest location she could find, a weathered house on the outskirts of the coastal Maine town of Victory Cove. It's been a rou

"That night..." she hesitated, "...was endless. It still hasn't ended."

One year ago while working late, Margaret Simmons witnessed a murder. Panicked by the sight, she fled Boston and found solitude & anonymity in Victory Cove, Maine. She changed her name to Megan Summers and picked up hobbies such as self defense, target practice, and superior nighttime navigation - skills she hopes will give her an advantage over anyone hunting her...

I really enjoyed this book. It grabbed me from page 1 and didn't let go. The mystery in the prologue was just amazing, and it intrigued me enough to keep reading until the very end.

A woman on the run for her life who hides in an old mansion on a cliff far-removed from society in a tiny seaside town, just waiting for when her past life and the danger she is running from comes to call and she can't hide from it all any longer. Added together with a mysterious stranger on her doorstep who is looki

You'll be awake all night eager to continue reading this tale of two individuals ultimately seeking their own identity. While the plot is haunting, the setting eerily beautiful (and colder than death), I quite enjoy Ms. Miller's ability to provide an underlying sense of humor and light into her characters.

I felt the fear of Megan's nightly demon, the hurt Jake feels as an adopted son seeking facts, and ultimately the love they find together. Learning that we are there to help each other, and no

This was another great book by Maureen A. Miller! It was full of suspense and romance. I like how the romance is throughout the book - sometimes the little kisses or looks at one another are all at one part of the book (the end), but these were along the way which I like.

The suspense was definitely there because I was exhausted by the end of the book (in a good way) as I felt the storm and all the emotions from the characters. Meg was fighting for her life and felt the path she chose was the on

Endless Night is a very interesting and unique story. Not only it's fast paced, but the storyline is original and outstanding too. Initially I thought I wouldn't like the story, but boy was I glad to be proven wrong. I keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. And I was definitely raging with adrenaline as I read the book.

Anyone who loves a good thriller and a fast paced story should re

ENDLESS NIGHT is a well-written, gripping romantic suspense novel in the gothic tradition. Megan Summers is a woman with many secrets. Secrets which will more than likely get her killed. Jake Grogan is a man with secrets of his own, and mysteries he is determined to unravel. Bound together by determination, the weather, and Wakefield House, an old monstrosity of a mansion perched on the edge of the Atlantic in Victory Cove, Maine, these two people must learn to take the first steps towards trust ...more

A well plotted, tense romantic suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat and guessing until the last page. Maureen kept cranking up the tension, making me live her heroine's fears and understand why she was tempted to lean on the hunky hero's broad shoulders.

I didn't want it to end. You won't either.

Thoroughly enjoyed Endless Night, by Maureen A. Miller. Loved the gothic feel of the story and the growing, plausible attraction between Jake and Meg, each of whom has a secret, although Meg's may end up killing her. Great suspense, great fun. Maureen A. Miller

I was expecting this to be more suspenseful than it actually was. It was a nice semi-suspenseful romance. I enjoyed the few MacGyver type moments that were included in it especially. Overall, I enjoyed the romance, but would have liked a bit more suspense. I'll have to try a few of the authors other books to see how I like other things she wrote.

This review is difficult for me to write. I wanted to like this book, I really did. Romantic Suspense has quickly become one of my favorite genres within the past six months, and some of my favorite reads from 2010 and 2011 are suspense books.

This was the first book by Maureen A. Miller that I have read. I thought the synopsis sounded interesting and decided to give it a go. The story was entertaining but it was sort of lacking for me. It sort of rang like a Nicholas Sparks book, you know what I am talking about, where you know within the first chapter how the book is going to end. Some parts were a little unbelievable to me, like the simple fact that if I thought I had a mercenary in my house that was sent to kill me, I wouldn't car

When I read the book description for Endless Night I expected a suspenseful novel but it wasn't exactly what I got.

The book begins with two separate storylines, Megan's and Jake's. We don't really know at first what Megan is doing at Victory Cove while we know that Jake is looking and trying to find out more about his birth parents. Their stories are quickly woven together and they become attracted to each other, with danger looming on the horizon, something Jake is not aware of. As Megan allows

This book was rather predictable, but fun. Not fun as in laugh-out-loud fun, more as in the short-and-sweet romance kind of fun. This is the kind of book you read when you don't really want to think about anything and just relax into other people's problems. Not to mention their love lives.

The characters are nothing new, Jake is handsome and Megan is frightened but with a core of steel. After getting off to a bumpy start, their mutual attraction grows and turns into sexual tension, but the book

As with any author there is always a book of theirs that you may not like. That was the case here. Normally I love this authors books. I think this book suffered from two weak characters. The outline of the story is a man finds out who is real mother is after 35 years from a letter from her that begs him to seek out his grandmother and find out about his heritage. This introduces him to the woman who is now living in his grandmother's house who hiding out in the small town on the run from a murd ...more

It must be so hard to write a romantic thriller these days and create a new twist in the plot! There are only so many ways a man and a woman can meet, become conflicted, solve the problem and be falling in love all at the same time. Romantic thrillers always have a past connection stalking the heroine with a view to gory death, and this novel is no exception.

The characters are well rounded - I could believe Meg's terror, and found Jake's search for his past interesting - but I was confused by th
One is running to his past while another is running from her past. This is the premise of Maureen Miller's Endless Night.

They both meet in Victory Cove. One night when a storm hits, Jake finds himself stranded at Wakefield House where Megan is currently living.

This story was a very slow burn and the relationship between Meg and Jake had enough sexual tension to keep me interested. The story chugs along and its not till the last few pages that anything note worthy happens. Jakes search for his biological parents is interesting just because it the stuff of local scandal and has a nice resolution but nothing spectacular. All in all this is a nice little story but sadly a little forgettable due to the pg13 nature of the relationship between Meg and Jake.
Not bad. This romantic suspense/thriller moved fairly smoothly. Not totally convincing at times but still kept my interest to the end. The romance portion was balanced nicely with the suspense. Jake Grogan is an electrical engineer who has recently received a letter from his birth mother that leads him to Victory Cove, Maine. There he meets the mysterious, reclusive Megan Summers. A woman in hiding, who knows the enemy is closing in on her fast.

There is as much suspence as romance in this book and I love a thriller. I felt the bitter cold and fear of the darkness. Maureen A Miller has written a great book throwing in storms, darkness and strange noises along with a handsome hero all adding to the excitement that has you turning the pages, be it sometimes tentatively. A great 5 star read.

Listened to this in audio rather than read it. OK read--not terribly suspenseful, not terribly romantic; it sort of falls awkwardly in the middle.
