Their gazes tangled. His head dipped closer, his gaze not letting go of hers. Then his eyes slipped shut an instant before his lips found hers. Soft, gentle. His fingers glided through her hair and cradled her neck.

She slipped her arms around his waist. This must be what it felt like to be cherished.

Slowly, tentatively, he deepened the kiss. He tasted like chocolate and mint and... like she'd finally come home.

I enjoy reading books by Sandra Orchard, and Perilous Waters was on my TBR list. As soon as I started reading this book, it was difficult to put it down. I found the Alaskan cruise with its scenery and fun shore excursions fascinating, and I enjoyed reading about twin sisters. The hero FBI agent Same Steele is brave and smart, but he suffers from guilt for the things that happened in the past. In spite of being a rich heiress, Jennifer Robbins is very kind-hearted, but her dream of living a quie ...more

I knew when I picked up Sandra Orchard’s latest release, Perilous Waters, I was in for a frigid, but fun retreat from my normal day to day. Once again, Sandra delivers a creative story with a keep-you-guessing ending. I love cruises as well, but know there are a lot of “mishaps” a suspense writer can utilize on board. Sandra made good use of many of them and kept the story moving with a good flow.

As for the art theft aspect, I particularly liked how she tied it into the cruise theme. I’ll admit

A good, clean story whisking you away on a voyage full of romance and suspense. Is Jennifer Robbins really involved in stealing art? Is her twin sister naively trusting their uncle or is she behind the attempts being made on Jen's life? Can Sam separate his role as an FBI agent investigating the Robbins twins or will he trust his heart to the woman he's supposed to be investigating?

Sandra Orchard delivers a quick and fun story that will answer all of those questions and more. The story's settin

Cruising holds deep mystery for those who have never had the privilege of spending a period of time on a large ship! The author takes us along on an Alaskan cruise, with details on a number of shore excursions. An undercover assignment on a cruise ship should create excitement for anyone, especially an FBI agent. Between wonderful meals, fascinating shows and all the other activities on board, someone is trying to kill his suspect…..or is she actually a victim? You really need to come aboard and ...more

WOW!!! what a surprise ending!!! I loved it!! As I started reading this book, I thought "why did I buy this book because I don't like ships and I don't like art", BUT it kept getting more and more interesting until I finally found it hard to put down!! Then I knew I had it figured out.....oh, how wrong I was!!!! You'll just have to read it to find the answer though!!! It was so good and over all I totally enjoyed every chapter!! So now maybe I might decide I like ships and take a cruise some day ...more

This started out fast and good and just kept getting better. It was a great romantic suspense novel. I really liked the main characters and did not want certain people to be the bad guys. I look forward to reading more of Sandra's book. I received this book from Sandra Orchard for a fair and honest opinion.

Sam went undercover on a cruise with his family to Alaska only to watch over art gallery owners, Jennifer and Cass. Jen turned into the victim but who was targeting her? Sam was falling for her but could he become close to anyone ever agaibn? This was a quick and easy and relaxing at times read.

This is a fast passed story about a man who works for the FBI, and is investigating stolen art cases from Seattle all the way to Alaska using a cruise ship vacation as cover with his family.
I try very hard not to let the romantic stuff get in the way of my enjoyment of these books. They are very easy to read.

The book was okay. My problem was that I could lay it down for hours and not even give it a glance. The only reason I finished it was to relive my own Alaskan cruise. We did the same route when we went. It’s bad when you like the secondary characters in the story better than the main characters.

"Another edge-of-your-seat read from one of my fave romantic suspense authors. Loved the unique setting -- an Alaskan cruise ship. And the art theft angle is something I haven't read much of before. Both made for a refreshing read." from a review posted by an Harlequin.com member. To read more, go HERE>
