In keeping with Halloween, and the Blog Hop, Things That Go Bump, I’ve not seen any good suspense movies lately. Nor have I read any good suspense novels.
So, I’ll discuss the suspense in my own novels. Masquerade Marriage is a Scottish historical set in 1746. The heroine flees from an awful arranged marriage to a sadistic duke. But she has nowhere to hide where the duke can’t find her. He wants her fortune and her ability to bear him a son. Her only way out is to get married. She chooses a name from a secret list of Highland warriors with a price on their heads. The hero seeks only to protect his mother and younger sister from the soldiers who seek their death. When he marries the heroine she gives him the protection of her identity, her wealth, and her castle. In their suspenseful race against death, the unlikely pair discover unexpected love.
A Texas Christmas Mystery finds the hero framed for murder. Sparks fly as the lady coastguardsman seeks to arrest the oil rig troubleshooter. She needs to solve her first case, but the handsome Cajun suspect makes her heart race and her toes tingle. He’s worked all his life for his high-paying adventurous job. When the past threatens his future, will he endanger the woman he loves to save himself? This book is filled with suspense.
In Marriage By Arrangement, why does a handsome, powerful noble of the highest rank in England stoop to marry a mere Lady of Lowland Scotland?
Are the whispered stories about him true? With his shadowy past and strange behavior, what awful secret does he hide? Can the lady keep her vow to make her marriage happy, unlike that of her parents, or to save her unborn child and her own life, must she arrange for the duke’s death?
Which book do you think contains the most suspense?
