One Dark Wish by @SharonbWray #Suspense #BookReview

The Historian and the mercenary!


“Twisty plots, fantastic characters, and pitch-perfect pacing. Fabulous!” —ALLISON BRENNANNew York Times bestselling author

Her life must be forfeit for his to be redeemed

Historian Sarah Munro is not used to being shot at, but that’s just what happens while she’s poking around cemeteries on Georgia’s Isle of Grace, searching for the key to a centuries-old cipher. Her quest has unwittingly drawn the attention of two deadly enemies intent on destroying each other—and anyone who gets in their way.

Ex–Green Beret Major Nate Walker is on a mission of his own: to restore the honor of his men. To do that, he is required to stop Sarah—or one of his own men will die. Caught in the middle of a deadly rivalry, Nate can’t afford to trust the woman standing in his way. But his heart says he can’t afford not to…

Biography

Sharon is a librarian who once studied dress design in the couture houses of Paris and now writes novels of adventure, suspense, and love. She’s a wife, mother of twins, caretaker of Donut the one-eyed dog, and addicted to Oreos.

Her Deadly Force books are a romantic suspense series where ex-Green Berets and sexy, smart heroines redeem Shakespeare’s greatest love stories.

My Review

The Historian and the mercenary!

I’ve anxiously waited for book 2 in the Deadly Force series and was thrilled to see this on my Kindle on release day.

First, I have to mention that cover. It’s like the skies opened and wept for the angel below. Moody and beautiful, the image hints at the story’s southern location, suspenseful genre, and ringing endorsement from Allison Brennan.

The story carries on two weeks after book 1- Every Deep Desire- with Major Nate Walker on the search for answers to why his Green Beret team was set up and court marshalled before being dishonorably discharged.

Sarah Munro isn’t sure why the handsome Nate keeps showing up just when she needs him most, but with danger growing every which way she turns, she’s grateful for his protection. If only she could trust that he didn’t have his own agenda.

As two deadly enemies close ranks on the historian, Nate must make a lose or lose decision- one that could cost him his men or the woman he loves.

Favorite Line

Nate sat higher against the headboard and smelled peppermint. Doc Bennett had taken off Nate’s shirt to rub salve on his arms, and now he smelled like a damn breath mint.

    • This series has been so good, Mae! I have a line from the first book on my all-time favorite list down the right side of the blog:
      Ragged police tape swung from the columns. The double-wide front door had been blown open, like the house had died mid-scream. Like it is still screaming.

      Every Deep Desire- Sharon Wray

      Powerful writing ❤

  2. That cover is wonderful. Drew me in immediately. The description sounds like a book I would love, and your review totally sold it. Thanks, Jacquie.

    • Sharon does a masterful job of bringing two opposing worlds together. On the one hand, you have the tough Green Berets, who are angry and frustrated with their situation. They’re ready to break some bones and take names.
      Then you have the scholarly Sarah. She’s wickedly smart and determined to win back her credibility, no matter how dangerous it gets.
      Add in a group of Fianna warriors who speak in Shakespearean prose determined to stop Sarah and a nefarious gangster who wants the answers only she can give him, and you have a keg of dynamite ready to blow! lol
