From romantic thriller powerhouses Kat Martin, Alexandra Ivy and Rebecca Zanetti, the trio behind the instant USA Today bestseller PIVOT, three new interwoven stories about brave heroes fighting to stop a rampage - and protect the women they love...

When a cop killer resurfaces in Denver, enlisting the help of a pair of local lowlifes, it marks the beginning of a violent crime spree that will wreak havoc and endanger lives. Law enforcement is on alert from the first sighting of the cold-blooded trio. To take down this brutal gang, only those willing to risk everything they hold dear stand a chance . . .

First, a pair of Denver police officers facing each other for the first time after one night of abandon find themselves working together to stop an ambitious bank heist. In Wyoming, a string of robberies marks the gang’s arrival, and the local sheriff springs into action when the criminals discover his estranged fiancée can identify them. Finally, in the mountains of Colorado, the gang takes shelter on a peaceful guest ranch, where a fiercely protective rancher is hellbent on roping the fugitives up for good.

Trusting their sharply honed instincts, three rugged men will fight to stop the rampage before the women they’d die for become the next victims . . .


Peril is the second anthology from Kat Martin, Alexandra Ivy, and Rebecca Zanetti, featuring intertwining tales. The first was Pivot, which I reviewed last week. In Peril, a group of bank robbers tie the stories together.

  • REDEMPTION – Alexandra Ivy (Book 4.5 in Pike, Wisconsin) This story offers a second chance at a missed romantic opportunity. You know, the one that got away. We meet Tessa Ralston is a police officer who lost her partner Colt and moved to Pike, Wisconsin. When she gets a tip that the criminal who killed her partner, she heads back to Denver. Detective Ian Sullivan has never forgotten Tessa and while he wants to capture their cop killer, he’s also ready to make his move. I loved the characters and the twists Ivy threw at us. While the chemistry was sizzling, the romance was served on the side. 4 cups
  • RESCUE: HERO STYLE – Rebecca Zanetti (Redemption Wyoming Novella #2) This tale offers a second chance at romance with plenty of suspense. Caden Scott, the town’s sheriff, has PTSD and instead of talking it through with his fiancée, he left without a word. Now he is back, and Ella is having none of it. I loved Ella’s spunk and respected her whys. I also felt for Caden, even if he messed up. Zanetti had some great secondary characters and really pulled me into the story. When a series of robberies occur and trouble arrives. Scott will need to win the girl back, save the town and protect her. I loved this story and really hope we get book one of the Redemption Wyoming series. 4.5 cups
  • ONE LAST KISS – Kat Martin (Blood Ties: The Logans #3.5) This tale delivers the conclusion to the anthologies while delivering a sweet & sizzling romance. Liberty “Libby” Hale is a makeup model whose world gets turned upside down when her Uncle Marty, the man who raised her, dies. In his will, he stipulates she must spend a month on a ranch in Wyoming working to inherit. I loved this city girl meets cowboy romance. Sam Bridger, cattle rancher, is taken aback when the city princess fits right in on the ranch. When a guest at the ranch causes trouble, it forces the two to face their growing attraction. Suspense, danger and swoons delivered an engaging read. I am curious to try the Blood Ties series. 4 cups

These anthologies that weave the same suspenseful thread are great reads and the perfect way to explore a new series. It isn’t necessary to have read the series mentioned to enjoy these stories.

    Great review. I have this one but I was wondering how difficult it would be to come in on three already established series that I’ve never read before.

    • Kimberly

      These are meant to work as standalone. While they might introduce a town etc, you’ll be ok. I promise.

  2. Lover of Romance

    Great review! I can see how these authors would really deliver here. Very cool that they are intertwining. Glad you had a solid time with this one.

  3. Katherine

    This sounds like the suspense version of the Willig, White, Williams books and I am absolutely here for it! This sounds fantastic!

    • Kimberly

      Yeah, they were fun, and it felt like a complete story since we followed the suspense aspect throughout.
