Christian Romance E-book Praised

Last Resort
Genre: Novel: Christian Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Desert Breeze Publishing, Inc.

Five-Star Review

Just when you think it's another church supper, the hero makes his entrance...and what an entrance it is. He crashes in and winds up with strawberry shortcake all over him. Then there's the guy with the gun. Creepy. He turns out to be a stalker who relishes the hunt. Scary.

Faith Roussell is determined not to fall in love again, not after her ex-fiancé cheated on her. But Matt Allen has eyes that are like magnets, drawing her in. The action goes from Bridal Wreath, the Florida Keys and finally to Key West and then back again and as the storyline progresses, the stakes keep getting higher. The continual playing on the words "last resort" intrigued me, as that's one of the monikers for Key West. Also, near the end, the villain says he escalated his actions as a last resort.

This is a novel where the reader can not only connect with the heroine and hero, as would be expected, but there's also connection with the villain. This is a unique take on how to present a villain and an inventive one.
