Is not obvious for a category romance And the characters both the main Scarlett and Grant and the secondary are pretty interesting Actually I have liked the other brothers so much that I will probably read other books in this series ven though I rarely read category romances Still Cynthia Eden is great in Cannibal every genre she writes Scarlett and Grant were high school sweethearts However withvery tour of duty he felt his humanity slip away so he broke things off with her before she went away to college brutallyA decade later Scarlett is accused of murdering her Mastered (The Enforcers, ex fianc and Grant is the only one who can prove her innocenceThis was a fast paced thriller If you like Cynthia Eden books you will like this one her writing style is uite distinctive and that s the real problem I feel likevery one of her heroes is Man, Son of Man essentially the same guy doesn t matter if he s a vampire werex SEAL ranger Alter Ego etc This book is no different I also feel her villains are a bit one dimensional they are always unhinged always meticulous always one of a small group I contrast this with Laura Griffin s most recent book which I also read this weekend there the serial killer s identity fit well with the underlying story his motives and presence were clear without being obviousI like Cynthia Eden but I start one of her books knowing that the characters fall into certain stereotypes If you like alpha males with tortured souls and damaged women this is the writer for you A lot of the time I m not bothered by all the romantic suspense mini series out there that involve a clan of brothers who all happen to be in typical Alpha Male high intensity jobs finding love I mean I ve been coming across it since the mid 90sBut sometimesnough is noughHere s another family in romantic suspense land with FIVE brothers who are all SEALs Rangers or some other masculine profession To add cliche to cliche there s a younger sister they re all protective over Too much of this book involves a brief setting up of the stories to be found in the next five books That was time that could have been spent beefing up the thin plot of this bookWhen Scarlett Stone becomes the prime suspect in the murder of her x fiancee she turns to Grant McGuire for help He s an Uncommon Wisdom ex Ranger who broke her heart ten yearsarlier when he left her to fight for his country But he promised he d always look out for her They are thrown together in their pursuit of the truth with a killer still out there wanting revenge on ScarlettI m afraid this one felt almost like a bad parody of a romantic suspense novel Every cliche you can think of is present And Grant was just too Alpha male y Most of the time he just Unseen City ended up sounding melodramatic and silly The Intrigue heroes set my pulse racing than any of the other Harleuin lines but Grant fell far short Every line of dialogue he uttered was corny cheesy cliched and obvious The other characters all fell in line with thexpected cliches of this genreThe storyline itself was thin The villain I was able to spot the moment they were introduced If less time had been spent setting up the stories to follow characters could have been introduced in this Re a sexy former army ranger turned detective has never been the same since military action But behind his cold demeanor he still burns for ScarlettTaking her case is an asy but dangerous decision for Grant Together they must race against the
