Virtual Tour! Troublemaker by Linda Howard

A thrilling, fast-paced novel of romantic suspense from sensational New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda Howard.

For Morgan Yancy, an operative and team leader in a paramilitary group, nothing comes before his job. But when he’s ambushed and almost killed, his supervisor is determined to find out who’s after the members of his elite squad—and why. Due to worries that this unknown enemy will strike again, Morgan is sent to a remote location and told to lay low and stay vigilant. But between a tempting housemate he’s determined to protect and a deadly threat waiting in the shadows, keeping under the radar is proving to be his most dangerous mission yet.

The part-time police chief of a small West Virginian mountain town, Isabeau “Bo” Maran finally has her life figured out. She’s got friends, a dog, and a little money in the bank. Then Morgan Yancy shows up on her doorstep. Bo doesn’t need a mysterious man in her life—especially a troublemaker as enticing and secretive as Morgan.

The harder they fight the intense heat between them, the closer Morgan and Bo become, even though she knows he’s hiding from something. But discovering the truth could cost Bo more than she’s willing to give. And when Morgan’s cover is blown, it might just cost her life.

I enjoy Linda Howard's books and I have for a while now. She is a go to author for me, and when I see that one of hers is available, I am always interested. She writes real characters in interesting situations. They are definitely situations you don't want any part of in your real life (murders, serial killers, etc) but that is part of the fun of the books, you get to live vicariously through characters you like and enjoy.

Morgan and Bo were no different. They were both characters you could relate to who reacted in ways that seem real as they dealt with the situations presented in the book. And, I think this is one of the things I really enjoy about Howard's writing...the situations seem real. I am not a spy, no one wants to kill me (that I know of, LOL) and no one has ever shot at me. So, no, I have no frame of reference for the events in the story. Yet, I feel like I do, like I was there, like it could have happened the way she described it. And, this is what keeps me coming back for more.

I liked the small town setting. I liked that Bo was the "paperwork" sheriff, not the one who handled the day to day issues, I loved the secondary characters...and I really liked the dog.

The romance between Bo and Morgan was also believable...I liked the slow burn as she warmed up to him even being in her home before she was willing to even consider him in any other ways. I like the way he pursued her single-mindedly when he decided she was what he wanted. And I liked that he just didn't let her go.

This book was enjoyable and I recommend it.

Linda Howard is the award-winning author of numerous New York Times bestsellers, including Up Close and Dangerous, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Cover of Night, Killing Time, To Die For, Kiss Me While I Sleep, Cry No More, and Dying to Please. She lives in Gadsden, Alabama with her husband and two golden retrievers.
