Driven by Rebecca Zanetti

Posted January 31, 2021 by Marsha in Kensington Books, NetGalley, Romantic Suspense, Series / 0 Comments

Unswerving: Angus Force is determined to hunt down the serial killer he’d once shot dead—or so he thought. But an anonymous source reports that Lassiter is alive. Force hasn’t slept since knowing it’s only a matter of time before “the Surgeon” strikes again. And soon, a body is found, bearing Lassiter’s same maniacal MO. It’s just the beginning of a murderous trail that’s blazing through DC and Virginia, right to Force’s backyard . . .

Unstoppable: Nari Zhang is the shrink for the ragtag Deep Ops Unit, though she isn’t Force’s shrink—which is a very good thing. Because once they’re thrown together on the case, their attraction is explosive and irresistible. They’ll just have to fight that much harder to keep the heat between them from flaming out of control. But things are about to become far more challenging, and deadly, than they could have imagined . . .

Unhinged: Once the killer catches a glimpse of Nari, she becomes his new obsession. She is now the focus point—for both Force and Lassiter—in a dangerous dance for survival . . .

Jock Rossi has come a long way in the culinary world for someone who isn’t formally trained. Now he’s a rising chef with fame and money finally within his grasp. Determined to attract investors, he launches his latest restaurant in Last Stand. But when he meets his local competition, Jock’s plans skew off course.

Welcome back to Willoughby Close, with four new residents and happy endings to deliver…

Laura Neale is determined to make a fresh start. A year after her husband’s death, she’s still left with too many questions and struggles with feelings of guilt, anger, and grief. Hoping to rebuild her family’s life, she moves to Wychwood-on-Lea with her children, Sam and Maggie, all of them struggling in different ways to fit in and find happiness.

The warm community of women in Willoughby Close welcomes Laura with open arms, and, although wary, she finds their friendship helps her to take those crucial and challenging first steps. But then a sudden, intense attraction to her son’s teacher smacks her in the face. James Hill is funny, charming, and incredibly gorgeous—but he’s ten years younger than her and completely unsuitable. Laura’s not ready to start dating again, never mind actually falling in love. But what if her heart has other ideas?

She’s looking for a second chance to reconnect with her daughter but finds so much more.

Since her husband’s climbing death a year ago, Maureen Shannon’s relationship with her twelve-year-old daughter has spiraled out of control. Desperate, she resigns from her partnership at a legal firm and moves back to her hometown in Whitefish, Montana, with the hope that family and nature can heal their wounds.

Big Bad Wolf by Suleikha Snyder

Posted January 26, 2021 by Marsha in NetGalley, Paranormal Romance, Series, Sourcebooks Casablanca / 0 Comments

In 2016, New York became a Sanctuary City for supernaturals…but things quickly spun out of control. Now, Third Shift is an elite team of operatives tasked with exposing the gritty underbelly of New York’s criminal-supernatural underworld, taking down the worst of the worst and protecting human- and shifter-kind alike.

Joe Peluso has blood on his hands. But lawyer and psychologist Neha Ahluwalia is determined to help him craft a solid defense…even if she can’t defend her own obsession. Because Joe took out those Russian mobsters for good reason–they were responsible for the death of his beloved foster brother. Those six bad guys were part of the ruthless clan of bear shifters who control Brooklyn’s Russian mafia, so his vigilante justice has earned him countless enemies in New York’s supernatural-controlled underworld, and no friends in a government that now bends to Russia at every turn.

Joe knows that creatures like him only deserve the worst. Darkness. Solitude. Punishment. But meeting Neha makes him feel human for the first time in forever. He’s never wanted anything in his life like he wants Neha, and he’ll break almost any rule to spend a minute alone with her. But when the Russian mob attacks the jail for payback, Joe and Neha are forced to escape. Before long they’re on the run–from monsters who want him dead and from their own traitorous hearts.

Titles in the Third Shift series include – Big Bad Wolf
