To-Read Tuesday...Deadly Pursuit by Irene Hannon

For this To-Read Tuesday post. The book that I can't wait to read is the second novel in Irene Hannon's Guardians of Justice series. The next book is scheduled to come out in September and is entitled Deadly Pursuit is scheduled to be published.

This weekened I just reread the first one Fatal Judgement. I have read Irene Hannon's Heroes of Quantico series and was extremely interested in reading her new series. Irene Hannon writes incredible romantic suspense novels. I love romantic suspense novels. They are my guilty pleasure, and if it's Christian romnatic suspense even better.

Before I get into what Deadly Pursuit is about, I'll offer a brief synopsis of Fatal Judgement.

 From her website: Deputy Marshal Jake Taylor has seen plenty of action as a member of the U.S. Marshals Special Operations Group, including a recent stint in Iraq. But he’d much rather go back to that hotbed of trouble than deal with his next assignment: providing protection for federal judge Liz Michaels. His antipathy toward her is just as strong as it was five years ago, when her husband—his best friend—died in a possible suicide. But as Jake works to keep Liz safe, he discovers she’s not a cold-hearted workaholic wedded to nothing but her job, as he expected. Forced to reevaluate his opinion, he also finds himself grappling with a growing attraction. And when it becomes clear that an unknown enemy may want her dead, the stakes go up. Because now both her life—and his heart—are in danger.

Synopsis for Deadly Pursuit, once again taken from her website:

I love Irene Hannon and will anxiously be waiting until September when I can buy this book. Anything by Irene Hannon and Dee Henderson will always make it on my to-own shelf and is destined to be read over and over.

As a social worker with the Department of Social Services, Alison Taylor has a passion for protecting children and seeing that justice is served on their behalf. But now it seems she needs protecting. Someone is making harassing phone calls and sending her bizarre gifts. When her tormentor’s attentions take a violent turn, she calls in reinforcements. Her brother, Cole, comes to her aid, along with his new partner, Detective Mitch Morgan. As her relentless stalker turns up the heat and the danger intensifies, Mitch takes a personal interest in the case. Because protecting Alison has become more than a job; his future depends on keeping her safe.

Whimsical Wednesdays...Vindictive Stairs

To make the story short: I was pushed down a flight of metal stairs…naturally it was an accident, but still I was a little perturbed.

Needless to say I wrenched my back and behind and have been out of commission for awhile.

Just when I start to actually think I can fulfill my blogging goals…those vindictive stairs.

However, in the meantime I did finish editing The Chosen One. 

Yes, Alana did you hear that. I finished.

Nothing but silence.

Alana, are you going to answer me.

More silence.

Alana Monroe, answer me!

Alright, I’m here.

Why were you ignoring me?

I’m not overly fond of talking this publicly.

But you have been doing that for months?

That was out of necessity.

So now you’re back to being silent until I mess up again?

Yes, pretty much.

You’ve just left me in the middle of massive rewriting on the sequel and another round of intense editing on The Chosen One and you’re done talking.

You took good notes and until you mess up, then yeah I really don’t have anything to say. Maybe Telyn will.

She leaves me shaking my head and rolling my eyes.

That’s all I did all week. I laid flat on my bed and typed away furiously on my laptop and did little else…maybe just maybe those stairs weren’t as vindictive as I thought.
