Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since her explosion onto the publishing scene more than ten years ago, Suzanne Brockmann has written more than fifty books, and is now widely recognized as one of the leading voices in romantic suspense. Her work has earned her repeated appearances on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists, as well as numerous awards, including Romance Writers of America’s #1 Favorite Book of the Year (three years running), two RITA Awards, and many Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Awards. Suzanne Brockmann lives in Sarasota, Florida, with her husband, author Ed Gaffney.

Review:

"Bestseller Brockmann's Reluctant Heroes series opener delivers everything that romantic suspense fans will expect. The first case that lawyer Phoebe Kruger tries for her prestigious new firm isn't going the way she thought it would. Her client, Ian Dunn, doesn't want to leave jail, despite being offered his freedom in exchange for doing one small thing for the federal government. His reasons may have to do with a tangled mess of life-changing secrets involving international criminal sociopaths, mobsters, family, and friends. Phoebe and Ian must work on both sides of the law to save two kidnapped children before their time runs out, while ensuring that Ian's family is safe from the demons of his past. The lengthy story starts slowly but moves powerfully once it gets in gear, and the cast of sensitive alpha men and strong, imperfect women is well developed. Interpersonal tension gets far more focus than action, creating a refreshingly light feel. Agent: Steve Axelrod, Axelrod Agency. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Ian Dunn has the world believing that he went rogue in a very big way by turning his talents to the lawless life with con jobs and jewel heists. In reality the former Navy SEAL and Special Ops warrior is leading a band of freelance operatives that still fight for good by fighting in highly unofficial ways. That makes Ian the perfect choice hands down for an operation that the government needs done but can’t be attached to because of it being a breach of a heavily guarded embassy. A couple of children have been kidnapped by their father who is a sinister foreign national that will do anything to get what he wants even if that is turning his own children into casualties. Surprising everyone Ian turns the mission down for reasons he refuses to divulge.

Phoebe Kruger is Ian’s new attorney that refuses to take no for an answer. She is determined to get the children free and is able to get Ian on board. She also insists on riding shotgun with Ian on his Mission: Impossible style operation. Whether Ian likes it or not.


Phoebe is proving to have a knack for getting out of tight spots. What Ian and Phoebe don’t count on is their intense attraction to each other. As the team gears up to get done what needs to be taken care of Ian and Phoebe’s emotions grow stronger. They need to control their feelings for each other if they want a chance to survive a wealthy psychopath who loves both money and murder and a mob boss that is very vindictive and he has Ian on the top of his hit list. Playing lethal games of deception and dodging death squads Phoebe and Ian are determined to save the innocent children and take care of the guilty.



This is a book that starts off fast and doesn’t stop for anything. The action is intense and engrossing and keeps the story moving along at a very fast pace. With all the cons going on it keeps the reader enthralled and not wanting to put it down for any reason. The characters are engaging and sympatric and help the story come to life. With the twists and turns the story takes the reader is never completely sure what will happen next or just where they will end up. This one takes readers for a ride they will never forget. The secondary characters play just as big a part as the hero and heroine and this one does not disappoint. It will also have readers eagerly waiting to see just where this series will end up going.
