From New York Times bestselling author Tara Sue Me, writing as Tara Thomas, comes an explosive new romantic suspense series.
Welcome to the sultry streets of Charleston, where simmering desire and dark danger rule...
He’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe…
Someone wants Janie dead. Brent will do anything to protect her from a ruthless killer’s hunt. But an enemy this powerful won’t give up easily….
And danger and passion will explode as they fight for each other.
This novella picks off right where the Shattered Fear Ended and continues the story of Janie and Brent.
Janie is no longer employed as a police officer. She got fired for interfering with the investigation after being put on an administrative leave because of unprofessional conduct.
That has not stopped the killer from targeting her and tormenting her with threating messages.
Brent is doing everything he can to help to keep Janie safe.
The relationship between Janie and Brent is developing to the next level, the feelings between them are getting deeper, and the commitment they have for each other is something to be taken seriously.
I enjoy Brent and Janie's story, their characters are likable without many complications. The suspense is intense, and I am invested to see who the culprits are, even though I do have my suspicions.
With the first novella, I was under the impression that it was just a little prologue to whet the appetite towards the upcoming series. Now that this has turned into a serial novel of three parts before the first full-length novel in the series, I am apprehensive. Serial novels are a big turn-off for me, and I easily lose interest with them. I liked this story, all right, but I am ready for it to move on and get to the real action, depth, and intensity of a full-length novel.
A likable and intriguing continuation to the story of Janie and Brent that again ended with a cliffhanger.
