The rating i actually a 4 and 1/2 stars, but I rounded it to 5 because the story was good.

The paranormal element was not over-stressed, but nicely fit into the story. It was made like almost the most natural thing. I like how it was done!

Also the love story was good. It has the feel of an insta-love, but it was not overdone. The hero, Zach, and the heroine, Sloane, were fighting this attraction, but, obviously, cound't not succumb to it! *wink*

Zach is a strong (and yoummy!!!) man who has

A fun, sexy, and fast-paced ride…

The plot twists will keep you turning the pages. The steamy romance will have you cranking on the A/C. And yes, Zack really is as yummy as the cover.

What I loved best about COME HELL OR HIGH DESIRE was how mature the hero and heroine are. Both have tormented pasts, and both have tried to move past them and help others in what they do. Sloane doesn’t believe in herself (or her ability), and Zack has been burned from putting his trust in the wrong people. But when

Come Hell or High Desire by Misty Dietz was an action and suspense packed story. There is also a paranormal aspect to the story as Sloane and Zach are not only attracted to each other physically but he seems to be an anchor for her psychic abilities. That was a new twist for me that I had never read before.

The twists kept me guessing throughout the book and the end had me gripping my Kindle in tight fists because I wasn't sure how Ms. Dietz was going to give me an HEA. She did and it was

I loved this book!! It was action packed and had me in the edge of my seat. The twist and turns had my guessing. Awesome job Misty you have a winner! If you like thriller suspense this book delivers! I highly recommend this book!
Action-Packed and Thrilling
Since his mentor John's sudden death a year ago, it's been a daily struggle for Zach Goldman to keep up with the construction business he inherited. He's getting by though, clawing his way through. Until someone leaves an inscrutable note on his door one morning. It asks just one short question. "Where is she?"

When Zach figures out John's daughter is missing, he's rocked by self-loathing and fear. He'd promised to take care of the woman who was like a sister to him.

I enjoyed reading this book, it had a subtle paranormal feel that fit with the story. Both of the characters in this book come with pasts and both resolve to do better in the present/future. Zack is hoping to locate a woman for his mentor that is no longer in his life. Sloane is also trying to use her power to locate a missing a woman. Zack goes to see Sloane and she refuses to help him, he refuses to give up. Can these two work together to find their missing people? Is it the same person? What ...more

A fantastic read which jumps off the pages and takes you on a thrilling ride to clear the name of an innocent man and protecting a woman who can see the danger that lurks in the shadows. Zack is one of those hunks that you dream about, roughened hands and sensual smoldering eyes that sweep you off your feet. Sloan has a secret and she doesn't want the world to know, but her attraction to Zack throws caution to the wind to save them both. A very intense read that I could not put down, very well ...more

This was quite a complex story and takes a little while at the start to get into the characters. It was packed full of drama & suspense. There’s Zack - yum - who’s friend has gone missing and Sloane who has psychic abilities who ends up helping him. I liked their intense connection. Their relationship is a slow build as they wade through the sh*t storm that is happening around them and learn to trust each other but you can feel the sexual tension simmering.

This is a fascinating and dramatic story, the paranormal aspect adds a little more suspense to it. Zack and Sloane connect not only physically, but Zack seems to temper her ability so it's not so harsh on her. Zack can't understand why she will not help find Ann, she's supposed to be a friend. Through all the twists and turns the heat between them builds, as does the danger. A thrilling end is in store for everyone involved.

An incredible read full of suspense and intrigue and an intense storyline. A psychic uses her ability to help her lover find and capture a serial killer. Poor Sloane has issues with using her gift to help others especially since she could not save her own sister. This book is a nail biter as Zack and Sloane race against time to find the killer and save their abducted friend.

In a world where many writers find it is easier to write about vampires and werewolves it was nice to find someone who went against the norm to give us a chance to explore the side of a psychic. Psychics seem to get a bad rap, but I instantly liked Sloane. She didn’t flaunt her ability but rather kept in hidden. That is until Zach enters into her boutique wanting to know about her employee Ann who seems to be

Zachary Goldman is a bad boy who's made it good, but not without some very hard lessons. Zachary has learned not to trust all but a very select few. When one of his circle goes missing, Zach takes on the job of finding her. Little does he know that everything he believes is about to be blown to bits.

When I started Come Hell or High Desire by Misty Dietz, I wasn't sure if I would like it. I found the beginning a little slow for my taste. As the story progress, I found myself unable to pull away. Once the sense of danger started to pick up I was captive to the story.

Zack Goldman is a man with a past. So, when a friend goes missing he becomes the prime suspect. However, he's trying to prove that he's innocent. Yet there is someone who wants to ruin his life, and this

If you're looking for romantic suspense with more twists than a roller coaster, then you've picked the right book.

I loved that the hero's not your typical CEO. Zack's a working man with calloused hands, two frisky labs, and a down-to-earth attitude. Thank you, Misty Dietz, for giving us Zack! Romance readers can't bang around a bookstore anymore without an avalanche of a billionaire CEOs!

I'm here to say Misty's made it safe for us to browse romance again. :-) But back to the story...

I actually quite enjoyed this book. I usually only read the Indulgence or the Bliss line from Entangled.But I think I just found a great new line...

This is the first book that this author has published and I have to say it was fantastic and better than some books I have read from authors with multiple books. I basically read this book in one sitting because once I started I didn't want to put it down until I found out what happened. Zack’s friend Ann has disappeared, and he is trying to look for her. He goes to the shop that Ann works and meets Sloane. When Sloane touches Zack she instantly feels an attraction to Zack. Sloane has a special ...more

I have problems when a book doesn’t grab me by the end of the first chapter. This book was really hard for me to get into. I love reading romance, and I’m not normally interested in paranormal. But once I got into this story, I was glad I hadn’t given up.

Ann, who’s pregnant, has disappeared. Her boss Sloan, who is a psychic, and Zac, who has trust issues, go in search of her. On occasion, Sloan’s independence ruffle Zac’s feathers, but their connection is strong, even though they both harbor

I really enjoyed this novel. I would have given it four stars if it wasn't for the whole "I love you" (two days) and "marry me" (one week) bullshit between the two protagonists. Sorry folks but I'm really bloody tired of this pattern that so many authors tend to follow. Every time I come across this I have this overwhelming urge to throw my Kindle off my balcony. Yep, that's how much it bugs me. And before any of you readers who like to criticize other readers' reviews, remember, this is MY ...more

Come Hell or High Desire is an incredible story filled with well written suspense, plot twists, great secondary characters and (my favorite) an intense connection between the Hero, Zack and the Heroine, Sloane, with an emphasis on connection!

Misty Dietz is a debut author, but proves she has already mastered the art of keeping this reader loving the suspense just as much as the romance. She starts the story off a bit fluttery as we get to know the main characters and they get to know each other,

Wow!! Wonderful read. You get romance without the erotica (of which I have no complaints about but don't always want) mystery, suspense and a bit of the paranormal thrown in which, all-in-all, made for a very enjoyable, relaxing read. Zack, a rugged, handsome man with a none to happy past gets drawn into the life of Sloane and she into his. Sloane has an ability to touch an object or a person and get a picture of was happening when the item was touched. Her ability has failed her in the past and ...more

Misty Dietz loves her man, her kids, kayaking, and Dean Winchester (oh yeah, Supernatural fans unite!). She writes romance, but she reads anything she can get her hands on, usually with her fur baby on her lap.

She spends her days writing sexy, adrenaline-fueled stories, enjoying family and friends, and praying her children don't come home with math homework.
