 Sealed with a kiss  

  From the old west to present times, this is wonderful collection of short love stories, by four different authors and four different types of story lines. Great read.

1. Mail Order Sunshine Bride by  Janet Tronstad

her in a bet and the sheriff wants to take her to jail! Now what is going to happen to her.
   I loved the wonderfully developed characters in this story and the amazing story line. Great read.

2. Deadly Intent  Margaret Daley

keeps getting worse. As a former police officer Ian has along of  people that want to hurt him and want him dead.
   Then into his life walks Texas Ranger Sarah Osborn once the love of his life and someone has taken Sarah hostage.
   Lots of suspense and action, great characters, I loved it.

3. Unshakeable Pursuit  Camy Tang

Lots of suspense, mixed with fires, gun shots, ice bombs, tear gas,  martial arts, and more guns makes this book a great read with tons of action.

 I really enjoyed this book, the characters talk to you, makes you feel like you know them. Great book. I won this book from Good Reads and I gave it five stars.



Elixir by Ted Galdi

   This book surprised me. I feel it's more for young
adults, and not a suspense as listed. BUT it's really
good book filled with well-developed characters,
lots of action, and a great story line.
    The main character Sean Malone, a fourteen year old
kid who has a IQ of 250 and feels there is something wrong
with him, but ends up saving the world. Loved the book,
I gave it four stars.

This book was free from Goodreads author Ted Galdi.
