Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gina Santiago is a member of an elite tactical team in charge of protecting the world. She's devoted her life to apprehending the most heinous criminals that prey on society — and now she's after the worst one yet.

On her own, with no backup, the trail takes her to a dusty, tight-knit town on the fringes of society, where everyone's a suspect. Even the sexy sheriff, Morgan Hunter, isn't telling her everything. Gina knows he's trouble, but she's inexorably drawn to him.

The closer Gina comes to finding out the secret of this sleepy little town and its big bad sheriff; the closer she comes to catching the predator, the more scared she gets — because she's beginning to realize that she has a secret too. A secret that will change Gina's life — and make her the killer's prey.

Review:

"Summers (Off Limits) occasionally stumbles in this intense series launch, a futuristic paranormal romance set in an ecologically desolate 2160. Gina 'Red' Santiago, the lone woman in the elite international tactical team commanded by the grandfather who raised her, travels off-duty to Nuria in the Republic of Arizona to investigate a woman's mysterious, brutal death. Gina doesn't believe in the rumors of supersoldiers, vampires and werewolves created by a secret government genetic engineering project, until she learns that almost everyone in Nuria is a werewolf and finds herself powerfully attracted to lycanthrope sheriff Morgan Hunter even as she connects others in his pack to the murder investigation. Complex and sometimes confusing world building combine with a steamy and conflicted romance between a strong heroine and a literal alpha male hero, with plenty of chemistry to fuel future volumes." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

War is brewing in a near-future world where murder is all but unheard of and the existence of creatures known as the Others has yet to be proven.

"What if Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf turned out to be the same person?" Intrigued? I sure was.

I was sucked in from word one, page one by this well paced story! A futuristic paranormal romance that was dark, hopeful, and sexy all rolled into one. You have a kick-a$$ heroine and hero that is sexy, tough, noble, and empathetic.

Red is an intense story with compelling characters who endear themselves from page one. Summers has crafted a complex story with a suspenseful plot as important to the story as the steamy romance.

The author's website describes her writing as supernatural, urban fantasy, contemporary/suspense, and erotic romance. I'd have to agree this series launch is all that. And I can't wait for the second book in this series -- Scarlet.

-- I need to stress that this book contains some very dark passages. When I read the first chapter of this story I could have easily been starting a murder-thriller. The parts of the story told from the serial killer's point of view, written in first person, put you inside his head, showing in no uncertain terms how demented the villain is.
