There’s absolutely no question that Cindy Gerard is the queen of Romantic Suspense. In each installment of the One-Eyed Jacks, she brings the action and suspense in spades but it’s no surprise that she can make the pages burn with her romances as well.

Counterterrorism operative Jamie Cooper is the playboy of the bunch. Often arrogant and a jerk, Cooper definitely knows how to mess with a woman’s mind. Rhonda Burns is the newest addition to the team and while she’s the take-no-prisoners kind of gal, she finds herself affected by Cooper’s charms. She fights it hard but it only seems to backfire in her face.

Terrible events kick off this book. When the team gather together, a shooter hits one of their own, sending her into critical quick and forces Cooper and his partner to investigate. Though the search comes up empty, they do find a set of cards, all recognizable to the team. What they mean isn’t certain, but it’s clear that the shooter seeks revenge on them.

In an effort to eliminate the threat, Rhonda and Cooper are forced to work together and that’s when the real trouble begins. Gerard takes her time with this one. She makes Cooper and Rhonda burn for a very very long time before they both just snap. As a result, the sexual tension in this book is crazy potent and actually runs throughout nicely.

What I love about this book is that both characters are created equal. They each have their own strengths and weaknesses and I loved that Gerard played around them. Rhonda has this fear of hospitals and as that gets explored, you also get a sense of how in tune Cooper is to her. Even as he tries to fight his desire for her, he can’t help but care. That to me creates a great basis for a relationship.

Another thing that I love about these books is that you get a few glimpses inside the head of the bad guy. To me, it just makes the books that much more suspenseful. It sets up the danger, provides intrigue and sets the pace for the rest of the book. In addition that to that, it creates for a more well-rounded story when you get all sides. So as you can probably tell, this book gets a massive thumbs up from me. I already cannot wait to get my hands on the next book!

About Cindy Gerard

Cindy's writing has netted her spots on bestseller lists, numerous RT nominations and awards, the Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence, a National Reader's Choice Award and two RITA nominations.

Between writing and working full time you wouldn't think Cindy would have much time for anything else. And while she does find her work and her writing rewarding, there does have to be more. Cindy has more. Much more. She is happily married to the perfect man. Tom's a cowboy, ladies!

Yes, even Iowa has its share of that saddle-straddling, Wrangler-wearing species who love their horses almost as much as they love their women. As a matter of fact, recently a whole herd of Texans gathered at the Gerard "Ranch" to treat their little ones to real horseback rides. Go figure.

Cindy has a passion for pink depression glass — she always has her eye out for the special piece to add to her collection. Cindy's down time often takes the form of the classic "busman's holiday." She loves to read and most of all, she loves to read at their summer place, a cabin in the woods on Lake Kabetogama in northern Minnesota.

Both Tom and Cindy enjoy gardening and have recently expanded their annual beds into a perennial garden. Cindy says she can hardly wait for spring and the promise of all that reawakening and the colorful blooms.

In addition to the horses, the Gerards have two dogs, Ellie and Boomer, who pretty much get anything they want. Tom and Cindy have one son, Kyle, who, after years of keeping them in suspense, found Eileen, the perfect woman.
