In the Shadow of Malice by Nancy C. Weeks

Adam Blake, ex-CIA operative, has gone to great lengths to keep his identity a secret from his maternal grandfather, who controls the most brutal crime syndicate in Eastern Europe. The moment he lets his guard down, the unthinkable happens and his best friend, the mother of his child, is tortured and murdered. To protect his daughter, he must seek the help of his father’s family—who has no idea of his existence. What Adam could have never foreseen is the unusual attachment between his daughter and her most unlikely protector.

After months of living in an emotional vacuum after her roommate’s murder, Calista Martin takes a chance and befriends a handsome regular at the diner. What is supposed to be just a ride home hurls her headlong into Adam’s world of murder and revenge. To add to an already explosive situation, Adam’s traumatized little girl refuses to release her hold on Calista. Knowing what it’s like to lose a loved one, Calista insists on staying with Adam to protect Anna.

After Calista risks her life to protect Anna, Adam begins to see the waitress from the diner in a different light. But the Vasnev threat is heating up and Calista, while willing to help him, really doesn’t trust him. Can he find a way to eliminate his enemies to become the father Anna deserves and the man Calista needs—or will he fail again, taking his future out of his hands forever?

    1. Hi Kathy,
      I love the tension between the romantic characters too. In my romantic suspense stories, the suspense is the second element of the story. The real focus of the story is the relationship developing between my hero and heroine, and I love placing them in situations that increases that tension. Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck. Hugs!

    1. Hi DJ,
      Thanks so much for dropping by. As a reader, I love seeing how in the end of a good romantic suspense, the hero and heroine can almost second guess what the other needs. That’s great chemistry. As a writer, one my biggest challenges is making that moment believable. Best of luck in everything.

    1. HI Jeanne,
      Exactly! Escaping in our hero and heroine’s world is why I love reading so much, but I have to tell you, as an author, I get lost in the worlds I create just as much. When I sit down to write, I set the radio to my favorite Pandora station, put on the ear phones and just disappear from my life for a little while. My characters, what they think, what they feel, become real. It’s such a fun thing to do. Thanks for stopping by and best of luck in all you do.

  1. My favorite thing is the way it keeps you on the edge of your seat, cheering for the ultimate moment when they finally connect!

    1. Hi Erin,
      I’m actually bought to silly tears when I write the type of scene you described. I just love that special moment when everything is going to work out. Thanks so much for dropping by for a visit.
