The new SBG novel from the author of Exchange of Fire.

When her secretly filmed tryst shows up on the internet, Michelle Alger goes on the run. She has no choice. Not only was her one-night stand the son of a US senator, but he’s been murdered—and she’s the number one suspect. With both the senator and an avenging drug lord on her trail, her life is in danger. There’s only man she can trust. He saved her once, but will he still be her hero six years later?

Captain Jeremy Malone and the rest of Delta Squad have the senator’s order: find the mystery woman who killed my son. But to Jeremy, she’s no mystery. Six years ago his team of Green Berets rescued her from the torturous clutches of a Colombian cartel, and he’s never forgotten her. His personal and covert mission: find Michelle before anyone else. When he and Michelle do meet again, the sparks are explosive and consuming. They’re also dangerous as hell.

Because with each new bit of evidence, Jeremy suspects that Michelle’s innocence may be a ruse—a beautiful trap set by a woman who has even more secrets yet to bare.

As soon as I saw the cover and synopsis for Shadow Of Doubt, I was instantly intrigued and knew that I had to read it. It was one of those books that I just couldnt resist picking up.

I loved the whole hot, alpha, Black Ops theme to the book. Jeremy Malone was a sexy man and I’m very interested in knowing more about the other guys in his team, and even the girls! I found the different names the characters had for “work” and “life” to be confusing, and I really had to focus on who was who. And Jeremy’s nickname being “Cappy” meant I kept reading it as “Crappy.” Ooops!

I liked that even though this is the second book in a series and I hadn’t read the previous book before starting this one, I didn’t feel like I had missed out on anything important that I needed to know in order to understand and enjoy the storyline. I did, however, want to go back and read the first book just because I think there’s a great story there.

I liked the overall concept of this book and I did end up falling for the two main characters, but I felt like there wasn’t enough dialogue to really help move the story along, and I skimmed some parts. I’m all about an equal balance on dialogue and description and I felt like the interactions between characters were lacking.

But as I said, overall the book was enjoyable and this is definitely a series I’d be interested in continuing with.

I’m a multi-genre romance author including paranormal fantasy and romantic suspense.

I originally hail from Carroll and Baltimore County, Maryland, but also lived in Macon and Warner Robins, Georgia. I currently reside in a beautiful community just outside Philadelphia.

When my head is not completely absorbed with listening to very demanding characters, I can be found with my nose in a book—not only enjoying the story but studying what makes the novel work. I love action-adventure movies (if it blows up spectacularly, I’m there) and watching way too much TV. (Can everybody say “Procrastination?” To which I usually reply, “But it’s research!” Yeah, they don’t believe me either.). More times than not, my husband and Shi Tzu stand outside my closed office door wondering, “Is she still alive? Do we dare bother her? What if she’s on a roll?” Monty usually answers by scratching on the wood anyway. Gotta love a dog who doesn’t care about boundaries! Good thing he’s so cute!
