Book One in the Edgars Family Romantic Suspense Novels

A Man in Desperate Need

FBI Agent Jake Carlisle is in deep trouble. While undercover he's been shot, but he's not sure if it's the crooks or local cops behind it. Worse, if he can't get help fast, two lives will be lost - his and that of the young witness, a boy whom he's sworn to protect. On the run from both the police and the Russian Mafia, Jake will do anything to save the child at his side, even something illegal. In desperation he kidnaps a nurse from a hospital parking lot.

A Woman at the Edge of Despair

ER nurse Samantha Edgars has been living in an emotional vacuum since the death of her daughter. Abandoned by her husband not long afterward, she struggles just to get through each day, but now all she wants is for the pain to stop and to finally be at peace with her child. Mentally and physically exhausted following a difficult shift, she walks through the hospital's dark parking lot lost in her own thoughts. Suddenly she's jolted from her stupor when she's bound, gagged, and tossed into the back of her car.

Danger on Their Heels

When they arrive at her home, she's terrified and forced to tend to a bleeding FBI agent and his injured witness. But Samantha quickly learns the rogue agent and orphaned boy need more than just her professional skills. With a menace bearing down on them, she must learn to trust Jake - and her heart - if they're all going to survive.

A Romantic Thriller With a Touch of Good Luck

What did you love best about Kidnapped?

What did I love about the book? Well, I was in tune with the 'thriller' aspect of the book than the romantic side of the book... though I won't deny that the romance made the book more ... sentimental than anything else.

This book is definitely a romance type of book rather than a thriller. Yes, there is a mystery/cops/action and the like... but the romantic scenes pretty much started in the first chapter or two. If you like a romantic thriller -heavy on the romance-, then this is the book for you.

I was looking for more of the 'thriller' aspect of the story line and not the romance side of the story, but I still love the book. It is very well written, it is a fast paced book, and the characters were well developed.

Personally, I do love the child who is a prominent part of the story; he is the one who brings the two prominent adults in the story together. If it had not been for the child, they would have never met, fallen in love, and gotten married.

That is probably my favorite aspect of the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

See above.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene came towards the end of the book, when Samantha and Jake are talking with the district attorney about how to handle the press and getting what Samantha, Jake, and the young boy want they want ... no, not what they *want*, but what they *need*.

Samantha was quick to defend Jake, about how he saved both her and the young boy... and that Jake should not be charged at all for his actions in protecting the child. Jake settled her to some extent before he told his side of the story, and came to an understanding with the district attorney.

Jake would willingly help deal with the press if the district attorney gave Samantha custody to the child, adopt the child, and then let Jake himself marry Samantha. It would mean that the three of them would become a bog, happy family.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. While I didn't particularly want as much romance as what there was, the romance theme provided a different outlook for the characters than what could have been...

Any additional comments?

Just a quick note... this story does mention the death of a child (Samantha's daughter, and she died of cancer), depression, and suicidal intentions (that never came to fruition).

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
