The story starts off with a bang- literally! Troublemaker by Linda Howard #BookReview #amreading #mgtab

A thrilling, fast-paced novel of romantic suspense from sensational New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda Howard.




For Morgan Yancy, an operative and team leader in a paramilitary group, nothing comes before his job. But when he’s ambushed and almost killed, his supervisor is determined to find out who’s after the members of his elite squad—and why. Due to worries that this unknown enemy will strike again, Morgan is sent to a remote location and told to lay low and stay vigilant. But between a tempting housemate he’s determined to protect and a deadly threat waiting in the shadows, keeping under the radar is proving to be his most dangerous mission yet.

The part-time police chief of a small West Virginian mountain town, Isabeau “Bo” Maran finally has her life figured out. She’s got friends, a dog, and a little money in the bank. Then Morgan Yancy shows up on her doorstep. Bo doesn’t need a mysterious man in her life—especially a troublemaker as enticing and secretive as Morgan.

The harder they fight the intense heat between them, the closer Morgan and Bo become, even though she knows he’s hiding from something. But discovering the truth could cost Bo more than she’s willing to give. And when Morgan’s cover is blown, it might just cost her life.


My Review

I’m a huge Linda Howard fan and was excited to come across this new release!

The story starts off with a bang- literally- as operative Morgan Yancy is shot, and almost killed, when returning home from a much-needed fishing trip. Fearing his elite squad is in danger, Morgan’s supervisor sends him to small town Virginia to recuperate.

Isabeau Maran is finally getting her life in order after a series of bad choices, so when the step-brother she hates sends her a parcel in the form of a gravely injured man, she wants nothing more than to turn him away. The temptation of a large payout convinces her to re-think her instincts.

Much of the story is written with Bo’s love of a frisky, but loveable Golden Retriever named Tricks and playing nursemaid to Yancy.

I’m not sure I would label this as suspense, it’s more of a contemporary romance. If you’re looking for Howard’s trademark suspense’s this probably won’t fit the bill.

I give Troublemaker 4 lovely kisses- Tricks is adorable!

About Love In Transit:

You know those people that have a house full of motivational slogans? Embrace Every Moment, stamped on their coffee mugs. Always Kiss Me Goodnight painted above their perfectly made beds.

I’m not one of those people.

This morning I overslept, then slipped on a stray sock and banged my toe into the nightstand. The elevator in my building broke and I had to run down six flights of stairs. And then my local coffee shop was closed. For health code violations.

What’s that? Not the end of the world? You want me to suck it up?

Did I mention I’m wearing a wedding dress… on the subway?

It’s a Good Day for a Hot Mess. Someone embroider that on a pillow.

Wicked Edge

“You ever ride a bike before?”

Her pretty pink lips turned down. “You know, oddly enough, I have not.”

The way she talked, every once in a while, bespoke an Ivy League education and hard-won experience. Just who was Cee Cee? “What’s your last name, darlin’?”

“Jones.” She shivered in the night air and zipped up a designer leather jacket.

Daire would bet his last coin that his cousin, clothes aficionado Simone Brightston, would approve of the coat. “You’re a mystery, Cee Cee Jones.”

She stepped into him, bringing the scent of wild hyacinth. “I’m just a good girl out for one wild time before getting back to real life. You going to give me that, Enforcer?”

Aye. Aye, he was. He threw a leg over the bike and held back an arm to assist her to sit behind him. She straddled the bike like she’d been born for it, and he shoved down a groan at the mental image of her straddling him. Then she slid her hands around his waist, tucking them inside his jacket.

Swallowing deep, his body rioting like a teenager’s on a first date, he handed back the helmet. “Tiny blondes with big brains protect their heads,” he rumbled, his voice sounding like he’d swallowed shards of glass.

She shifted against him and slid on the helmet. “I’m ready.” Her voice emerged muffled.

Shit. He was more than ready. “Hold on, baby.” He paused before igniting the engine. “Your place or mine?” Damn, had he really just used that stupid line?

She laughed and leaned up and into him, the helmet smacking his cheek. “Your place.”
