Shadow Fall by Laura Griffin (excerpts)

I had the wonderful opportunity to read Shadow Fall the upcoming addition to the Tracers Series by the very talented Laura Griffin, one of my favorite romantic suspense authors.  I am hosting a tour for her on September 30, 2015, so I hope you come back to see all of the info and my review…but until then, here are a few excerpts to whet your appetite.  I am most found fond of this author’s heroines because they are just as competent and effective as the heroes…and the suspense is always hair-raising.

I love these next two passages because they show the heroine’s competitive spirit and the attraction she feels.

She gazed up at him, heart pounding now.  She knew what he wanted. She’d known since the very first day.  And she’d steadfastly resisted him, at first because he was a suspect and later because he was so involved with the case.  He was even more involved now.

She loved sparring.  But as Liam climbed into the ring, she felt a hot flood of apprehension, because he wasn't like any sparring partner she’d ever had.  He was dark and intense, and she was about to have all that intensity focused solely on her.  His sheer size caused a flurry of nerves in her stomach.  He outweighed her by probably eighty pounds, so she’d have to rely on speed and strategy.

And this gives a glimpse of her steely determination but vulnerability…

Tara had never led a task force, but she’d been on a few and knew the importance of projecting confidence to the team.  So she didn’t mention to anyone, not even M.J., that she’d started her day with ten minutes of retching in the shower.

 The first four in the series...
