About DEATHTRAP

 


She’d been “the sick girl” for most of her life. She refused to go straight to “the weird girl”. Heart-transplant recipient Sophie Curtis has been in her own antiseptic bubble for so long, she just might not be able to venture out into the real world again. Her spooky body memories are scary enough, but then she finds herself in the cross hairs of a killer.

“Love was blind, people said. But lust was blind, deaf and reckless.” Ethan Bing hadn’t been a great romantic before he became a cop. Whatever shred of optimism he had left after becoming Broslin Chief of Police had been seared out of him by the unsolved murder of his wife two years before. A new case brings the killer within reach just as Sophie pops into his life. She gets through his defenses like no other before, but soon it becomes clear that she’s been selected as the killer’s next victim.

My Review:


4.0 Star Review – Broslin Creek Series

I recommend this book.

As always I enjoyed the book by Dana she combines suspense with humor very nicely. This book includes drama, passion, kidnapping, gunfire, betrayal and romance throughout the entire story. 
 
Look forward to the next book in this series Due out in December 2013:
 

DEATHBLOW



If the FBI’s best can’t protect her from the country’s most notorious assassin, does a burned-out, small town cop have a prayer?

Kate Bridges is running for her life after witnessing a murder. A sting was set up at her funeral so they could capture a killer and it all went wrong. She is currently hiding out in Broslin, Pennsylvania working as a waitress and renting a house. She has been running for the last 18 month on her own.  
Murphy Dolan is returning home from his 2nd tour of duty with the Army Reserves, to find Kate in his house and in his bed.

He can tell she is running from something. Not that she wants to admit it. He is suffering his own issues. Can try trust each other enough help each other out?

This was another awesome book in the Broslin creek series. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

*****I was gifted an ARC of this and enjoyed every second of this book. *******

It was a really great book you are going to love it.


 
To find out the answers to the below pick up the book:

Who is after Kate?

What happened to Murphy?

 

A few of my favorite parts of the book:

You’re going to tell me what you’re so scared of?”

Her shoulders immediately snapped straight, a tough chick expression coming over her face—incredibly sexy, even if she was faking it. Or maybe because of that. He found the contrast in her, between the woman she really was and who she wanted him to think she was, intriguing.

Her chin came up. “I’m not afraid of anything.”

“Which is why you sleep with a loaded gun.”

“It’s not much use unloaded.”

Okay, he had to give her that.

“If you’re in trouble, maybe I could help.”

“Because you’re a cop?” Her tone turned derisive.

“That and other reasons.”

No thanks. I’m a small town waitress who’s renting your house. End of story. If you’re looking for intrigue, go back to work.”

All right, so she put him in his place. Fine, rescuing damsels in distress wasn’t in his short term plans anyway. For all he knew, she was a bank robber on the lam. That brought a few interesting thoughts.

He didn’t want to be intrigued by her, dammit. He’d come home for peace and quiet. But while he sipped his coffee and looked at her through the steam as she walked away from him, he had a strong premonition that ship had already sailed, been set on fire by pirates and sunk into the sea.

 
 Murph reached for a cookie, smiling his thanks to Leila. “Can’t complain. Found a sexy redhead in my bed when I got in last night.”

“Shit like that never happens to me,” Chase mumbled. “Can I have her?”

Murph flashed him an as-if look as he chewed. “Find your own woman.”

“It’s easier for you. You have that whole returning warrior thing going.”

“Don’t let me stop you.” Murph laughed. “I’d be happy to hook you up with my recruiting officer.” He grabbed another cookie. “Caught the Tractor Trio Gang yet?”

Since he wore nothing on top, just sweatpants, she could see his muscles relax degree by slow degree. She knelt next to the sofa, onto the blanket that he’d kicked off. She was glad she’d set aside her skimpy nightgown and slept in her yoga pants and shirt. “Want to talk about it?” 

“Hell, no.”

“You have nightmares like this a lot?”

“Only when I sleep.”  

“And if he doesn’t hit at home?”

“He normally does. I checked what information I could find on his work. He doesn’t like an audience. He fancies himself to be invisible. Smoke. But just in case.” He jerked his thumb toward the back seat, the bulletproof vest he’d grabbed from the station. “I want you to wear the Kevlar under your clothes at all times. It’s the latest technology, not too thick. It’s winter anyway, everybody’s bulky.”

She raised a pointed eyebrow at him.

“Not you.” He backpedaled immediately. “Even in the thickest sweater you’re as slim as a monk’s chance for getting laid.”

She laughed out loud. “Nice save.”

I wrote for 13 years and completed 4 books (as well as having others in various stages of completion) before I finally received a call from a Harlequin editor. I was beginning to wonder if I was being tenacious or just too dense to know when to quit. But it all worked out at the end! J I love, love, love writing and would spend all day in front of the computer if I could just break my family of the habit of wanting to eat and wear clean clothes. What’s up with that? But I must get up from the desk now and then, if only because my Internet connection goes down or my ancient PC overheats. Then I do enjoy cooking, knitting, hunting for treasures at the flea market, our Beagle, Peanut the Destroyer, and gardening.

I’d love it if you picked up one of my books and emailed me to tell me what you thought of it. I’ve been known to name characters after readers. Just ask Princess Judi.

My Review:

4.0 Star Review – Broslin Creek Series

I recommend this book.

If you have not read “Deathscape” the book comes before this one in the series that’s okay you don’t have to read it first.

As always I enjoyed books by Dana.   Her books have plenty of drama and romance and you really get a feel for the characters of her books.  Look forward to the next book in this series.

Sophie Curtis had a heart transplant 2 years ago from someone in Broslin.  She moved to Broslin about six months ago to her own house to live alone and take care of herself.

Captain Ethan Bing, of Broslin PD. met Sophie when she fainted on his door step.  She looks into his house and believes she has been there before.  He walks her home and gives her a business card in case she needs anything.  He is drawn to her and does not understand why.

Jeremy Denvil owns his own consulting company and is Sophie’s ex-fiancé.  He wants to get back with Sophie as he thinks she cannot take care of herself.

Sophie is afraid of dogs from a past mishap and one follows her home after walking at the park.  She has to learn to accept the dog and not be afraid of him. She names him Peaches as not dog can go to long without a name.

Someone is breaking into Sophie’s house and messing up her yard…..  Why?

Can Ethan and Sophie overcome all the destruction that comes their way to make a relationship work?

To find out the answers to the below pick up the book:

Whose heart did Sophie get when she got the transplant?

Who is the killer of Ethan’s wife and why is she dead?

 

 

A few of my favorite parts of the book:

A half smile came to play on his lips. “You’re easy to be around. And easy on the eye. That’s a bonus.” He caught himself. Took a step back. “I have no right to be saying that. I’m not in a place where—”

“I’m attracted to you too,” she blurted, then wished the earth would just open up beneath her and swallow her up along with the wave of embarrassment that washed over her. She had no idea how to act around a man she was attracted to. She was pitifully inexperienced when it came to dating.

He stepped closer with an intense, thoughtful look on his face. “We shouldn’t do this.”

Her heart gave a hard thud.

“You probably can’t kiss.” Another step closer. “What does the doctor say?”

“We never kissed,” she deadpanned. “Dr. Pratt and I are not interested in each other that way.”

The sound of his deep laughter broke the tension between them. He moved a little closer still.

“Dr. Pratt says intimacy is all right, unless the other person is sick.” She couldn’t believe she just said that. Why not put a neon sign on her forehead? DESPERATE FOR SEX.

“This isn’t going to work.” He leaned his forehead against hers, the skin-to-skin contact jolting. “This isn’t the right time for either of us.” His hands slid up her arms. “I shouldn’t kiss you,” he said.

And then he did.

Holy heavens.

He didn’t do more than brush his lips over hers, and her head was swimming. Her heart seemed to skip several beats, which gave her a moment of anxiety before she remembered that it might be normal. Things like that were frequently mentioned in romance novels.

She’d just never thought it was real, that she could ever feel a wave of desire as intense as this.

Bing slowly put his arms around her, drawing her closer, and suddenly her breasts were snuggled against his hard chest. Tingles ran across her skin. Then he nibbled on her lower lip gently, and her knees went weak. She lifted her hands to his waist, for support first, then they somehow slipped around him and moved up the rippling muscles of his back. His body felt like a work of art under her fingertips.

A long minute of bliss passed before he eased back to look at her.

She stared at him, dazed, then gathered herself.

“I’m not like this normally.” They barely knew each other, even if she’d felt an instant connection, almost from the moment she’d met him.

He raised an eyebrow. “Like what?”

“Brazen.” If that was the right word.

He shook his head, that half smile coming out again. “Think again. You just locked lips with the police captain on your front stoop for everyone to see.”

She felt her face flush as he watched her, conflicting emotions crossing his face. The half smile disappeared as he stepped back.

“Don’t say it,” she blurted. “Don’t say it was a mistake, or apologize or—” She wanted to keep that one perfect moment as it was, even if they never had another.

His gaze darkened. “Apologizing couldn’t be further from what I’m thinking.”

Did the air thin suddenly? She felt like it did. He watched her with an intensity that made it impossible to look away from him. As if he was wrestling with an important decision.

Then he turned from her, strode to his pickup, and drove away.



On his way back to the station, he stopped for some coffee at the country store. The drive-through would have been faster at one of the chains, but the country store had Mildred behind the counter. She was eighty-two, still worked most every day, and got a kick out of being the Captain’s favorite.

Bing ordered the daily special, which turned out to be hazelnut mocha with almond milk. He liked his coffee black, but Mildred was proud of her specials. Her friends came in and made a big deal about them, and it kept her happy.

“Best one yet,” he told her with a smile. “Given some more thought about running away with me?”

“Drive by the house Sunday morning.” She flashed her own come-hither grin. “Pull up to the back. One whistle and I’ll shimmy down the drainpipe.”

From anyone else her age, that would have been an impossibility, but if anyone could do it, Mildred would. She had that kind of spirit.

“Don’t you believe her.” Eddie Gannon, the town handyman, came up behind Bing. He was in his fifties, and lived alone above the diner, a man of many skills. He drove the big plow in the winter for the town and went around fixing whatever needed to be fixed for the rest of the year. He winked at Mildred. “She’s been leading me on like that for years.”

Mildred giggled.

“We can duke it out in the back,” Bing offered to Eddie. “I have to warn you. I’m not going to give her up easily.”

They joked on for another minute or two while he paid.

 

He held up two new locks when she let him in—one regular, one dead bolt. “I can install them. It’ll take ten minutes.”
“Thank you. Okay.”

He smiled. “Hey, that’s progress. At the very least, I expected you to arm-wrestle me for the drill.”

“You’re not helping because you don’t think I can handle it.”

“So why am I helping?”

“Some men can’t express their emotions, so they show that they care by doing things. It’s a manly thing.” She’d been reading her self-help books in the evenings.

His lips stretched into a grin. And there was a moment of connection between them, as they stood in her entryway, just looking at each other. Maybe he was right. Maybe the attraction was a natural thing. God, what woman wouldn’t be attracted to him?

 

“I’ll be right outside in the cruiser by the curb,” he said once they were finished and the dishes put away. “Just to make sure whoever broke in doesn’t come back to give you any more trouble.”

“I have new locks. I have Peaches. And just as a warning…” She put her fists up. “I float like a bee and sting like a butterfly.”

“I was going to point out that if we lived together permanently, you’d have unlimited access to this.” He gestured with a hand at his body like the hostess at the board on The Price is Right, while wiggling his eyebrows suggestively.
