In On the Run, IT Specialist Daria Nevsky is a highly skilled FBI agent with the ability to hack any computer. She must go on the run to find out who wants her dead–and Dr. Ryker Donahue refuses to let her do it alone.

In Deadly Objective, physical therapist Emily Dixon and Secret Service Agent Liam Harper are committed to keeping their relationship professional. But when the vice president’s son enters the crosshairs of a killer, some lines will have to be crossed in order to keep him safe.

In Caught in the Crosshairs, there is no love lost between former Army PSYOPS officer Ari Blackman and CIA officer Claudia Gallegos after Claudia is implicated in the murder of a Saudi prince. But to prevent a coup that would put America at risk, they’ll have to learn to trust each other–before it’s too late.

Rating: 5-stars


Targeted is composed of three amazing romantic suspense novellas.

The first story, On The Run, by Lynette Eason is jammed with action, danger, and heart-pounding scenes. There were so many times, I thought the characters would die. Then, Lynette Eason would throw in a twist or two and the game continued. I was never bored. The dialogue and characters were engaging. Even the bad guys were interesting to follow. As for the romance, there was this undeniable attraction between the hero and heroine. However, not as much since the story is a short one. But traces were still evident to call it a romantic suspense.

Next, tale is called Deadly Objective by Lynn H. Blackburn. Once more, I was deeply engaged in a fast-paced thrilling story. It was filled with a brewing romance, an intriguing whodunnit, and danger. Plenty of action in the story to keep me glued into the characters and their lives. I absolutely loved the therapist. She is different yet everyone loves her so much! Emily is a fireball of energy and can take down anyone. Her bow skills are phenomenal. Then, there is the hero, Liam. A red head, blue eyed, tough outgoing agent. He handles stress so well but has trouble learning everything about the therapist who has captured his heart. Last but not least, I absolutely loved the 16-year-old boy who has a great sense of humor. He added warmth, depth, and love to this novella. He’s a bit like both of the two adults in charge of taking care of him. They all bond well. It is this bond that kept me wanting more.

Last story in this fantastic collection is Caught in the Crosshairs by Natalie Walters. I loved how this particular tale had a geopolitical espionage theme. Also, I found it a bit funny how the handsome hero was rumored to be called Bond. It totally suited him considering he works in the CIA and was handling a geopolitical sensitive case. My other favorite part to this read was the tough no backing down heroine. Inside, she is a soft marshmallow who loves her family and cannot resist the agent beside her. But she hides it well and keeps it under wraps. She does not want to be what her family wants. She is more than just that and it takes everything the hero has to show her she can have it all and still be herself. Natalie Walter never fails to keep my attention. It was one deadly attack after another. I was hooked!
