Living in a city deemed the wickedest in the world is no easy task for Miss Juliana Dutton. To make matters worse, with an ailing father and a drunken fool for a brother, she is forced to take over the running of the family business in order to survive. When a nosey suitor threatens everything, she spurns him and instead becomes engaged to the town idiot, Lord Munthrope. But is he an idiot? The more her problems push her closer to the man, the more she realizes he is not who he seems.

Miss Minerva Lane is a quiet, bespectacled wallflower, and she wants to keep it that way. After all, the last time she was the center of attention, it ended badly - so badly that she changed her name to escape her scandalous past. Wallflowers may not be the prettiest of blooms, but at least they don't get trampled. So when a handsome duke comes to town, the last thing she wants is his attention.

It's been seven years since Lexi Knight lost her brother in a tragic accident. On the anniversary of his death, her brother's best friend shows up unexpectedly - a man she hasn't seen since the funeral. He is no longer the boy Lexi once knew, but a dangerous-looking man with tattoos and dark secrets. He broke her trust and abandoned her family, yet what he reveals makes it impossible to stay angry. Lexi has been secretly infatuated with Austin since childhood, so finding out he's a Shifter just makes him sexier.

I have been looking for a book which had an inventive store and was fresh. Here it is, the characters are interesting and not predictable.

Navy SEAL Ian Dunn went rogue in a big way when he turned his talents to a lawless life of jewel heists and con jobs - or so the world has been led to believe. In reality, the former Special Ops warrior is still fighting for good, leading a small band of freelance covert operatives who take care of high-stakes business in highly unofficial ways. That makes Ian the hands-down choice when the US government must breach a heavily guarded embassy and rescue a pair of children kidnapped by their own father, a sinister foreign national willing to turn his kids into casualties.

Would you try another book from Suzanne Brockmann and/or Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank ?

Yes

What was most disappointing about Suzanne Brockmann’s story?

The story was predictable and drug on forever. I did like the characters, it had the base for a good story but just took too long to get to the end. I am from Sarasota and loved knowing where they were in the story but I hate to say it, that was about it. I have read other books by Suzanne and loved them. This one just got no where fast.

Which character – as performed by Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank – was your favorite?

Goth FBI agent. She was cool. I have already forgotten most of the names in the book.

Did Do or Die inspire you to do anything?

Get a different book.
