Oh, how I love the McNeil brothers! I've loved this series since Book 1 released. I've been waiting for detective Noah McNeil's story for eternity - well, maybe not that long, but let me just say, it was so worth the wait. The whole series is smart, sexy and full of crazy suspense. In the Shadow of Vengeance can be read as a stand alone, but what I found fun is how Nancy has woven in suspense, a little paranormal, and a diabolical mad man (and he is pure evil) and of course love into each McNeil ...more

I really love Detective Noah McNeil. He’s the kind of guy you want in your corner when faced with insurmountable odds. This book is another face paced, rollercoaster ride of suspense and romance. Loved it.

Elizabeth Merlot is the mother of a troubled teen that originally appeared in In The Shadow of Evil. Their lives are in danger and Noah is having trouble getting Elizabeth and her son to open up enough to tell him what they’re so afraid of. There is something about Elizabeth that Noah can’t res

Love it! Boy-howdy has Elizabeth Merlot ever gotten herself into a world of hurt. With a babe in arms and one on the way, she witnesses the unthinkable and voila, she’s in witness protection. Throw in hunky Detective Noah McNeil, a man willing to put himself between her and danger, and a dash of the supernatural, and there you have it – an absorbing, fast-paced read from beginning to end. As with all the books in the- In the Shadow of- series, you are in for a well-written, absorbing adventure.
