From enemies to allies…

When archaeologist Isabel Dawson stumbles upon an unconscious man deep in the Alaskan wilderness, her survival skills are put to the test.

I gave this audiobook a B+ for both the story and narration at AudioGals.

Narrated by Nicol Zanzarella

As a romantic suspense title that will cause you to question just who your allies and enemies truly are, Incriminating Evidence is sure to pique your curiosity. This title delivers more than just suspense, with an interesting enemies- to-lovers romantic plot that takes up equal, or near equal, time in its development as the suspense angle. Additionally, for the audiobook lovers, the narration

I'm really excited to have found this author - I love romantic suspense but I find it hard to find a lot of books that I like in this genre. Annika Martin, aka Carolyn Crane sends out a weekly newsletter with one dirty quote from the book she is reading. That is how I discovered this book. This is a new to me author, and I will definitely be checking out her backlist.

Isabel is an archeologist who looks for signs of prehistoric occupation before the timber harvest comes into this Alaskan forest.
4.5 stars. This was my read for October's prompt of Romantic Suspense/Paranormal in the TBR Challenge.

This is the fourth book in Rachel Grant’s Evidence series, but fortunately, this is a series in which all the stories are self-contained, so it’s not absolutely necessary to have read the other books. There are some characters who have obviously appeared before and it’s clear that certain plot details were planted in previous books, but the author has given enough information here for a new

I received this book through GoodReads FirstReads competition for free.

This is the first book that I have read in the Evidence series and so I thought that maybe I might feel like I had missed loads out and that I would be completely lost...but this didn't happen, I still enjoyed reading the book even though I hadn't read the other 3 novels in the series.

I received this book from Netgalley for my honest review.

I'm glad to have read this book and kept on with this series!
The last book was way to short and less complicated, but this one got right back on tracks!

The story is unusual as I became used with Ms. Grant's RS.
The storytelling was excellent and the MCs were wonderful!

I loved both of them and their consistency! There was not a moment of TSTL behaviour! Wonderful!

Great addition to the series and very recommended to all RS fans! :)

I had the pleasure to preview Incriminating Evidence (Evidence #4) by Rachel Grant . As with other books in the “Evidence” series it was a great book…I truly enjoyed this book, maybe more than the other books in the series – and highly recommend it for readers who enjoy Romantic Suspense.

The book had a good plot with an even mix between the “who-dun-it” and the romance. The lead characters were well defined, and equally matched in personal conviction and “alpha” traits. No frail, need to be save

This is one of the best romantic suspense series! Rachel Grant writes sexy and intelligent heroes and heroines. Her plots always have something new and interesting written into them. Never boring with the perfect blend of romance vs. suspense. One of my must buys!
4.5 stars for both content and narration

My review of the book is HERE so I won't rehash that; the audio version is expertly narrated and I'd definitely recommend it if you're into well-written, intriguing and nicely steamy romantic suspense stories.

My Review:

Hands down, this was just a great romantic suspense story. The story switches pov between Isabel and Alec who are two very different people.

Isabel is an outdoor girl. She's an archeologist who inspects forestry sites for signs of past civilizations before the forestry comes in and does work. She spends a lot of the time outdoors, by herself, and she's perfectly okay with that. She grew up and her brother Vin raised her from her teen years. They were close until he died the year before

A+ for originality and creativity. I love how this author incorporates something that a reader may or may not have heard of and twist it into a captivating thrill ride of a story.

When this book starts out it looks normal enough. A archeologist is in the forest of Alaska doing surveying. She is also grieving over the death of her brother which happened to be in the same forest when she comes across a man who face has been beaten and he is bleeding from a nasty head wound. Being too far away from
I loved the Alaskan setting, the black ops theme, and the tension between Isabel and Alec. They start as enemies, not trusting each other at all then morph into lovers then into a couple. I'm not generally a fan of the enemies to lovers trope but this worked for me. Their dislike and mistrust was believable and so was the attraction and the transition. They both fought their attraction, though Isabel more so. She blames Alec's company for her brother's death and for covering up the facts. The tr ...more

Excellent read! Anyone who has read many of the reviews that I have written or my bio knows that I am a huge fan of romantic suspence, especially when it involves military, or ex-military. This book has my favorites and is written really well.

You will not be bored and you will be shocked. The characters are many and are very well thought out and their parts are done in such a great way. I found myself holding my breath several times through out this book. It really took me through many emotions

What a kick ass read! The setting in Alaska was refreshing but what's more it actually plays an active role in the story. Isabel and Alec are both determined and it takes a lot of tries for them to get past their mutual prejudices and work together, but once they do they make a formidable team. Incriminating Evidence was a sexy, adventurous, exciting read and I can't wait to see what Rachel Grant brings us next!

5 Strong Stars for Rav & Iz! This was a great read for me:) It had all of my favorite elements in spades: romance/suspense/strong characters. I loved both main characters. The story line was tight with strong suspense/intrigue/action but without being exhausting. There also was no 'getting into' the book. The action took off from page one and never looked back! This is #4 in a series, but can be read as a standalone. However, if you're like me, you'll want to go back and read the others:) ...more
In the end, a much better book that I thought it would be, once I got past all the anti-terrorist training camp detail. I guess not being an American (therefore not such a target) means I am not so into all that. But I got sucked in to the suspense and the mystery, even (view spoiler). I am totally crap at dealing with that sort of stuff. It just freaks me out. It was an exciting story, all the same.

Right behind Linda Howard, Rachel Grant is becoming my go to author for Romantic Suspense!!

What I liked: The action begins with the very first page. The synopsis gives a good idea about the storyline but it can't describe the tension between Isabel and Alec. Not only sexual tension but they dance around each other so much, you can also feel the distrust. I appreciated the way Ms Grant portrayed Isabel and Alec. She acknowledges the attraction but these two are far from ready to abandon

Part of the Feel the Heat: 10 Steamy Romantic Suspense Novels collection.

I had not read the other books in this series, but it didn't detract from the story. The events and characters were all mostly local to the book, and the various twists and turns kept me intrigued. The main relationship was challenged by various conspiracies, which made the long build-up tolerable. In the end, the bad guy was a surprise, and they fell deeply in love (and sex!).

Should I read others in this series?

I loved the suspense! Not knowing who to trust, the thrill of the search, and the mystery surrounding Alec’s kidnapping and how it ties to Isabel’s brother’s death...I was glued! The enemies to lovers romance between Alec and Isabel was just as enticing. They had such raw sizzle, I mean how did these two not blow the compound with their attraction?!

This is my first book by Rachel Grant because well to be honest it was pricey but it was free. I've always wanted to read her it was luck. I loved it smart and the suspense, makes you think. The who and why built up till the end kept me thinking. I love that Isabel is a bit snarky but has know how is pretty caring despite being cold at times. Alec is interesting I like that he wants to help how he knows. He's also passionate so he and Isabel butted heads.

The “Evidence Series” by Rachel Grant is a fascinating combination of archeology, politics and war that keeps mankind hinging on edges of power play and destruction for personal gain and us readers at the edge of our seats and highly entertained.

“Incriminating Evidence” takes archeologist Isabel Dawson to the wilds of Alaska searching for truth about her brother Vin’s death as a Raptor operative on Raptor land. Saving the Raptor CEO Alec Ravissant was never on her hiking trail, yet she ends up s
I absolutely loved this book. It is the fourth book in this series, and in my opinion, it is the best. All the books in this series have been wonderful, but this one grabbed me from the first page. The story begins as Isabel finds Alec unconscious in the Alaskan wilderness. She manages to save his life, but has she risked her own life and safety by doing so? Immediately upon awakening, Alec (whose memory has been affected) accuses Isabel of being his attacker. This begins a back and forth attack ...more

Highly Recommend Isobel was walking down slope in the Tanana Valley State Forest on day 4 doing an archeological survey. Her employer was the Alaska Department of Natural Resources. Isobel found a man with blood covering his face. Isobel's brother had been murdered and the Raptors boss may have covered his murder up. Isobel was drinking buddies with Nicole, who was a Raptor op.

Rachel Grant's Incriminating Evidence is a great book about Archeologist Isabel and Alec a former Army Ranger and current owner of Raptor a mercenary company that helps train the part of the US military. The story starts off with a bang when Isabel find Alec her enemy in the Alaskan forest and has to decided whether to help him or go get help. The second she decides to help him her life turns upside and she doesn't know who she can trust or what killed the only person she ever cared for.

ARC provided by the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I love a romantic-suspense plot with a lot of suspects for the baddie and Incriminating Evidence has them in abundance. Add to that a hot former Special Forces Army hero and a smart, sassy, beautiful redheaded heroine and you have a book that ticks all my boxes for a great read. These two start out going at each other like junk yard dogs and end up...,well it is a romantic suspense, after all and the romance is hot and

This romantic suspense series just keep getting better and better. I didn't figure this one out until almost the very end. I had my suspicions about three-fourths of the way through, but then I'd be thrown off. Turns out I was right, but it didn't all fall together until the very end. The story alternates between Alec's and Isabel's pov and it's super easy to follow. It also allows the reader to get a bigger picture.

Isabel came to the Alaska wilderness to find out exactly how her brother died,

Minority here, but keep in mind this is not my genre. It sure has suspense, how well that works for you, it'll depend, I guess.
The story was intriguing, but I wasn't hooked. Mostly because both main characters weren't my 'type': rather than strong she does come out a bit on the pathetic side, not David against Goliath, but a grieving (almost autistic) sister going crazy. He ends up looking pretty dumb and stupid, not a nice place for the position he's in.

I really loved this book and Alec his mind is entertaining, "of course, this morning of all mornings, he’d wake with a morning missile. But then, he had a soft, warm woman’s round a** pressed up against said missile, and he was only human." Isabel the girl knows how to be a girl scout when she really wants something badly, "she might tuck a few condoms in the pocket of the hoodie. And in her backpack. And maybe in Alec’s backpack too." I really loved the chemistry that was between these two:
