Expert Witness: A Romantic Suspense Novel

by Nicole Luckourt

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

GENRE: Romantic Suspense

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

BLURB:

 

While working as a forensic psychologist, Jordan Clayton has made enemies. Providing expert testimony in court put her in that position. Except, now, someone wants her dead, and the bigger problem is she has no idea who. Fortunately, her colleagues have a solution. Unfortunately, it involves hiring a bodyguard to protect her until the perpetrator is caught. But he is nothing like she expected. Though she feels physically safer in his presence, emotionally, she feels more at risk than ever before.

Chase Armstrong has worked as a protection specialist since he left law enforcement. He makes it a point to not ever mix business with pleasure. In his line of work, the two can be a deadly combination. It’s a rule he never breaks—never even bends. Except, now, his latest assignment is challenging his resolve. Rather than the subtle change in routine he was seeking, protecting her is something else entirely. She has him not only exercising every bit of self-control he possesses, but reconsidering his entire perspective on life as well.

A debut novel of intriguing psychological suspense, forbidden attraction and perseverance.

 

Excerpt.  

Jordan dropped her spoon and stared at him in disbelief. “Are you talking about hiring a bodyguard?”

 

“I think it’s an excellent idea!” Karen exclaimed. “I’d feel so relieved to know that someone who’s trained to deal with this type of thing is with you.”

 

Jordan’s jaw fell. “You can’t be serious. How on earth could I do my job with some huge, overbearing powerhouse in a suit and sunglasses hanging over my shoulder?”

 

Mike laughed. “Oh, Jordan, you know as well as I do that the image you described is about as accurate as the ones out there of psychologists. I’ve known this guy for years, and he’s as professional as they come. He’s trained to blend into any type of environment and to stand out only when he needs to. I’m betting his team members are equally as good.” He crossed his arms loosely over his chest. “I’m sure you two could work out the particulars.”

 

She pinched her forehead around her temples where a dull ache had settled. Nothing about his solution sounded appealing to her, but she tried to approach it delicately. “Honestly, Mike, I didn’t mean to be offensive. But in all seriousness, even if I agreed to the idea, which I’m not, I couldn’t afford that type of protection. I have no idea how much it costs to hire a bodyguard, but I can imagine around-the-clock protection isn’t cheap.”

 

“I’ll talk to him. I’m sure we can figure something out. Besides, we can always use the money we’ve put aside for the additional marketing costs for the practice. We don’t need it. There’s already over a two-month-long wait to get an appointment as it is. And even if there weren’t, this is your safety we’re talking about here. You can’t even put a value on that.”

review

 

 This book is about Jordan and Chase. Jordan works for the courts doing evaluations to see if people need guardians, as well as being a forensic psychologist. So she has made enemies, and now someone wants to kill her. So Jordan hires a body guard, Chase Armstrong. Chase immediately realizes there is attraction between them but is determined to keep it profession, he doesn’t want to risk letting his guard down and causing Jordan to get hurt. Will Chase keep Jordan safe till thy catch the guy who wants her dead? Will Jordan and Chase try for romance after the bad guy is no longer in the picture?

This book was really great. The author draws the reader in right away with the danger. The characters are well developed. I would call this story a thriller or suspense story with some romance in it, rather than a romance with some suspense in it. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good thriller, mystery type story.

I’m giving this book 5 fangs.
