Running from danger, caught by love.

With her life at risk, Sarah Cooper hangs up her ballet shoes and flees her glamorous career in San Diego. She assumes a new identity and takes refuge at a horse ranch in rural Maryland. Mucking stalls is a far cry from center stage, and the ranch's so-called "horse whisperer" is the complete opposite of the men she's used to. He's

Love in Hiding is a fabulous romantic suspense novel. I loved it! Sarah is a fighter. She has a stalker who is terrorizing her (as stalkers are wont to do) and she has run, trying to hide far from home at a horse ranch. Bruce is the super sexy (former Navy SEAL) who works with wounded veterans, teaching them they can walk again with the help of his horses. Bruce’s therapy work with the wounded veterans was my favorite part of the book. Bruce is the taciturn alpha hero who has little faith in ...more

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book. Love in Hiding keeps you on the edge of your seat, or your bed, depending on your favorite reading spot. Sarah fakes her own death in order to escape the clutches of a crazed stalker. A former premier ballerina, she finds shelter and employment on a horse farm as far away from her home and the stage where she made a name for herself.

Bruce lost his parents, his wife and his SEAL team. He can’t afford to love and lose one more person. Instead, he

A ballerina and a hero who runs horseback riding therapy for veterans. Wow. What unique, well-formed characters. I really enjoyed getting to know them.

The premise of a public figure (the ballerina) who is being stalked by a crazed fan is believable and real. The story flowed along at a quick clip, while still saturated with the country flavor of ranch life. Danger was very real from the beginning, and there was a nice plot twist at the end.

This is a great, satisfying read from a talented,

Great story! I'd say it was written well, and of course, I loved that is was situated on a farm (being a farm girl). Sarah's character was real and down-to-earth, and I loved all the farm people who took her straight into heart and home and treated her as one of their own.

The relationship between Bruce and Uncle Joe was as funny and adorable as can be; Uncle Joe was very thoughtful, and his advice was always well-timed. I loved the way he understood his nephew thoroughly.

If you want to read a story that will keep you literally on the edge of your seat, filled with complex characters and tons of suspense , a sexy former Navy Seal, a gutsy strong female character, and romance, then this is definitely the book for you. Never a dull moment.
The story centers around Bruce and Sarah. Bruce is a physical therapist working with veterans by employing horses . He meets Sarah at the ranch. He suspects she is running from something, just doesn’t know what it is. Sarah in

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Love in Hiding. Sarah is a heroine most women can relate to, she's determined, sometimes too determined for her own good, and Bruce is the kind of guy dreams are made of. Me-yow. Their love story isn't gratuitous, plays out naturally, so doesn't overshadow the suspense. The writing style makes the reader feel like they're in the story suffering and reaping rewards right along with the characters, and with a shot of humor this book makes for an interesting, fun read.

Love in Hiding is a not your average love story. The author's mastery in suspense, the plot twists and turns, takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotions. You find yourself not only rooting for the characters, but becoming them, feeing every ounce of tension, fear, love and determination that's woven into the fibers of the story. It's more than just a romance novel. It's a story of the bonds of family, the ones we are born into, as well as the ones we create for ourselves, and the ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It was fast-paced and kept you on the edge of your seat. I love the way there were two plots going through the whole book and they converge at the end. It was like reading a soap opera. This was the first book I had read by this author, but I will be going to find more.

3.5 bumped to 4. This is the first book I’ve read by Diane Holiday. It was pretty good, all things considered. It’s a fast-paced romantic suspense that reads quickly. You’re thrown into the middle of the drama as Sarah is running from her stalker. She’s headed cross-country in an effort to get as far away as fast as possible. She literally left everything behind in Cali. She ends up on a horse farm in Maryland with fumes in her gas tank and barely any money in her pocket. She’s desperate for the ...more

What a story! Not the usual type of book that I read, but once I started it held my interest to the very last page. Definitely a suspenseful romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat or staying up until the wee hours. Great characters and plot that flows along at a very good clip. There was always a surprise or two waiting on the next chapter that made this a hard to put down book. The main characters have been well developed and are both strong, caring and multi talented people. I ...more

Beautiful debut.
A stalker prompts Sarah, a ballerina in San Diego, to flee across the country. She ends up as housekeeper and barn chore girl at a Maryland horse farm. Grateful for room and board plus small wages, she learns new skills and soon fits into the cast of characters at the ranch.
Bruce Murphy is in charge of the therapy program for veterans. A former SEAL, he knows his job and how to keep secrets – including his own.
Ms. Holiday crafts interesting characters and gives them obstacles to

"At least she had the gun in her purse. Not that she'd learned to shoot it yet." She fears for her life to the point of abandoning her entire life, going into hiding, and buying a gun, but doesn't bother learning how to shoot it? TSTL.

Couple pages later: "If her life depended on it, she'd be ready." I'd believe that if she ever learned how to shoot her frigging gun!

Couple more pages later: There is technically no such thing as a riding RINK. It's called a riding ARENA or a riding RING.

The twist and turns

In this book keep you on your toes. Sarah was running from a stalker in San Diego where she was a ballet dancer. She ends up in Maryland on a farm and trying to keep her head down. Bruce runs his horse therapy program out of it. He is a ex SEAL and knows something is off with her. But he doesn't know he has a semi stalker himself.

A great start to a new series...

Love in Hiding is the first book in the Love Beyond Danger series. I loved this romantic suspense story. The characters are well developed, likable, and have great chemistry. The storyline is well written and engaging, with a stalker, lies, threats, suspense, intrigue, hot romance, and therapy horses.

I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

If you're a fan of suspense and romance, but usually have to choose between the two, you're in luck. Diane Holiday's first book in the Love Beyond Danger series will have you turning the pages to see what happens next. It has all the heat of a romance novel with a bit of nail-biting in between. This is a good novel to pick up for anyone on your gift list.

As a rule, I do not read many romantic novels but I am glad I read this one. It is more than a romance and has elements of suspense and mystery. The book was fast-paced and the characters were really well defined. I will definitely read more books by this author.

Wonderful book!

Sarah is on the run from a stalker but she runs into Bruce. Bruce is not looking for a woman to apart of his life but then he meets Sarah. Their story is up and down, sweet, sad, suspenseful, and the tension. You really need to read.

This is a fast-moving, exciting novel. The main characters are the perfect combination of charming and complex.
