About the book:
From romantic suspense author Tara Thomas comes the explosive next novella, Hidden Fate, in the brand-new romantic suspense Sons of Broad series.
Welcome to the sultry streets of Charleston, where simmering desire and dark danger rule…
He’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe…
Someone wants Janie dead.
Brent will do anything to protect her from a ruthless killer’s hunt.
But an enemy this powerful won’t give up easily….
And danger and passion will explode as they fight for each other.
Hidden Fate is the second of three prequel novellas that are opening up Tara Thomas’ new romantic suspense Sons of Broad series. The three novellas definitely need to be read in order together as they are all one continuing story line.
In the first novella readers were introduced to detective Janie Roberts who had been working undercover as a bartender while working a case searching for a killer. Janie had met the handsome and charming Brent Taylor and became involved with him even though he may have been a suspect in the case.
Now after being fired for getting involved with Brent Janie finds herself the new target of the serial killer even though she has left the police force. Janie and Brent find themselves growing closer as they try to evade the killer.
Being the middle of a three book set this one read just that way picking up where the first novella had left off but leaving the readers up in the air for the set up of the the third and final novella. What I found myself wishing with this one though was for Janie to show that she actually was a cop and a tough female instead of looking to Brent to protect her. Highly interested in the final novella though so hopefully this romantic suspense set will wrap up quite nicely.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
