I’ve recently started binge reading Brad Taylor’s Pike Logan Series and am thoroughly enjoying it! I started the series a few days before Christmas with One Rough Man and am now in the middle of book 5 The Polaris Protocol. I won’t be caught up with the series by next Tuesday when Ring of Fire, the newest entry, is released, but I do have it pre-ordered so it’ll be loaded and ready to go when I do finally get caught up.

Lady Samantha Barrett wondered if her imaginary hero would ever become real. Of course, he must be devastatingly handsome and just a bit dangerous. Now, her coach is filled with a collection of Gothic novels and her head with romantic notions as she eagerly leaves her brother’s country estate for her first London season. Still unsophisticated and too innocent by far, Samantha is ill-prepared for the hypocrisy of the ton or for the formidable stranger who crosses her path—a stranger she is sure must be the man of her dreams…
Lady Alexandria Cassel scorned London’s frivolous social whirl, seeking adventure as a stowaway aboard a merchant ship. Drake Barrett was the vessel’s powerful captain—and a cynical duke who disdained a noble’s shallow life. At sea he revealed neither his origins nor his wealth, and to Alexandria he was simply a man who made her cool reserve fly with the winds… whose desire for her was as wild as the ocean they sailed.
I’m excited to feature a showcase today of Bryant’s Gap by Michael E. Burge. You may remember reading my review of this fun and well-written mystery a few months ago here. If you haven’t read BG yet and you like mysteries, I highly recommend that you just go order/download a copy already, purchase links are below. There’s also a great giveaway at the bottom of this post!
If you’ve been reading our blog very long, you know that Brad Thor is one of my favorite thriller authors. His research is always more than current, it’s usually about six months ahead of the news headlines.
Yesterday afternoon he sent an email to his newsletter subscribers with a special treat- a BONUS Chapter for HIDDEN ORDER! Woooo- Hoooo! It sets up Scot Harvath’s next adventure and hints about good things to come.
What are you reading this weekend?
I just started reading Brad Thor’s newest thriller, Hidden Order. I’m about 11 chapters into it and totally hooked. For years I’ve looked forward to Thor’s annual Summer releases and this year was no different. I hope to carve out a few hours of uninterrupted reading time this weekend to really sink into this story.
Today marks the paperback release of The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay, a book I reviewed at the beginning of the year. I included the content of my review below and would love to hear your thoughts on the book as well. If you haven’t taken the time to read this book yet, I encourage you to pick up a copy today! You’ll be glad you did.
One of my personal reading habits is to alternate my thrillers with romance novels. It changes the tempo of my reading and helps me keep all the characters separated from each other. Plus, those are my two favorite genres, so this method ensures I get to read a lot of both of them.
In between reading Vince Flynn’s The Last Man and Michael Palmer’s Political Suicide, I read Kelly Hunter’s Flirting with Intent.
