TWO HEARTS––UNLIKELY HEROES

Today, Casi’s crème de la crème pick is Tamara Ferguson’s

TWO HEARTS UNLIKELY HEROES

Check out the full review on Amazon:

5.0 out of 5 stars

Wow! A Terrific Military Thriller!

Wow – Tamara Ferguson does it again!

TWO HEARTS UNLIKELY HEROES is  a military, medical romance of star-crossed love and second chances. I am continually amazed at how this author captures my heart with her richly-drawn, war-ravaged characters. I feel the pain of their physical injuries and glimpse into the mental anguish torturing their souls.

In Two Hearts—Unlikely Heroes, Ferguson weaves a steamy romance then thrusts the couple into impossible situations, all while giving the reader a taste of military life.

The story begins in Afghanistan where hero, Lieutenant Benjamin Nash, discovers Air Force Lieutenant Samantha Caldwell, our heroine, lying on the side of a road with a mangled leg.

Two years later, they run into each other in Crystal Rock, Wisconsin and are once again thrust into the crosshairs of a terrorist.

Tamra Ferguson has an incredible talent that spins the reader into a nail-biting situation ultimately satisfying them with a happily ever after…but along the journey she somehow emboldens my sense of patriotism, hope, true love, and second

chances. If you love military thrillers I highly recommend this book and all of her Two Hearts series!

When Wounded Warrior Captain Samantha Caldwell Is Being Targeted By Terrorists After Killing Their Leader In Iraq, Can AFOSI Agent Captain Ben Nash Keep Her Safe?

When Captain Samantha Caldwell’s team is hijacked by terrorists in Iraq, her quick thinking results in the destruction of both the munitions they were transporting along with the attacking insurgents. But her actions come with a cost, and Samantha is injured from gunfire after sending her team running for their lives.

Assigned to the team following behind, Captain Benjamin Nash has been warned that the intel provided may no longer be accurate, and their mission may have been compromised.

When Ben comes across a severely injured airman near the road while scouting ahead and discovering the wreckage, he manages to radio for a chopper. They’ve never met, but when Samantha momentarily regains consciousness, Ben feels a strange connection once they speak.

But trouble strikes during the rescue, and this time Ben ends up shot as the chopper is preparing to depart.

Two years later, in preparation to become an AFOSI agent, Ben is sent to a training facility in Crystal Rock, Wisconsin, and the last person he expects to see is Samantha, who’s working there as an instructor. Not knowing her name or rank, Ben had been making discreet inquiries about her for several months, trying to discover if the woman who’d been severely injured had survived.

It doesn’t take long for Ben to realize that Samantha is special, and he would do anything in his power to have her. But Ben is there pretending to be an airman since he’s been sent there for other reasons besides training.

Sam is feeling the same way about Ben, but she’s avoiding him as much as possible. Although she can’t quite put her finger on why she thinks Ben is more than he appears, there would be serious consequences if she entered a relationship with someone beneath her in rank.

But everything changes when Colonel Pierce meets with Sam and Ben and discloses Ben’s actual mission. Can Ben keep Sam safe from the terrorists who’ve targeted her after she apparently killed their leader during that fateful mission in Iraq?

Despite their serious subject matter, the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior stories are all about hope, with happily-ever-after endings. This #1 bestselling series has won over twenty combined awards, including the Readers’ Favorite BRONZE (2019 & 2018), SILVER (2019 & 2016) and GOLD (2018) MEDALS in Military Fiction.

About Tamara Ferguson

Writing steamy yet sweet compassionate stories of fate that are wonderfully romantic, Tamara Ferguson is the multi-award winning, USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR of the Tales of the Dragonfly Romance Suspense Series, the Kissed By Fate Series, the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Series, the Daydreams & Dragonflies Sweet Romance Series and the Tales From Dragonfly Pointe Short Story Series.

If you don’t believe in the power of fate, you shouldn’t read her stories, because Tamara always writes a happily-ever-after for her heroines and heroes, since it doesn’t always work out that way in real life.

Since 2015, she has earned more than thirty awards, twenty of those for her Two Hearts Wounded Warrior romances, including five Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards with Two Hearts In Accord (2019) and Two Hearts Unbroken (2018) earning the BRONZE, Two Hearts Under Fire (2019) and Two Hearts Unspoken (2016) earning the SILVER and Two Hearts Find Christmas earning the GOLD Medal in Military Fiction (2018.) Two Hearts Surrendered was also a New Apple Romance Selection for excellence in Indie Publishing and 2018 Top Shelf Finalist. Two Hearts’ Christmas Wish is a 2017 IAN Book of the Year Finalist. And it’s the #13 BEST INDIE BOOK of 2017.

Along with the 2015 Romance Reviews Readers’ Choice Award Winner That Unforgettable Kiss, Two Hearts Surrendered and Two Hearts Unspoken were also finalists for the 2016 IAN Book of The Year. Tales of the Dragonfly In Tandem was a romance finalist in the Indie Excellence Awards, while Tales of the Dragonfly In Flight was a romance suspense winner at the Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards.

A member of the RWA, the Authors’ Billboard and the Authors’ Independent Book Network, her stories have been included in several #1 bestselling anthologies.

Since she remains a full-time caregiver for an autistic son (along with a bunch of adopted pets!), you can usually find Tammy working at home, where she spends a lot of time not completing her numerous home improvement projects, because she’s writing or helping author friends promote their books on twitter.

“I used to read this genre of novel all the time but hadn’t been able to find a good one for a while. Beneath the Lake was that book! The story with it’s twists and turns kept me reading instead of doing things like laundry and sleeping. I kept trying to guess what would happen – even to fighting the urge to flip to the back of the book to see. I have been guilty of that but it wouldn’t have helped. I would only have been confused! I’m not going to tell any of the plot either because I don’t want to ruin it for anyone else. All I can say is READ IT! It’s worth every bit of dirty laundry still waiting on me.”

crème de la crème

OVERDOSE by Uvi Poznansky

A Terrific Short Read Perfect For Halloween––Overdose

This month, Casi’s Crème de la Crème pick is Uvi Poznansky’s newest release, Overdose. A thriller that kept me glued to my seat, Poznansky’s new release lured me in on page one then further enticed me with each page turn, immersing me into a gripping medical thriller––looking over my shoulder as if I was only one step away from the villain. The third book in Poznansky’s captivating series, this story won’t leave readers lost if they read this story first. But should they read this series in order, they’ll be rewarded and stunned at how this USA Today Bestselling Author weaves past characters into this new thrilling saga.

The writer’s first person present style draws the reader into the heroine’s mind as she unravels each clue. Tempted to scream out ‘no, don’t go there’ as if Ash should heed my warning, I rode a rollercoaster with twists and turns all the way to the last page. I read Overdose in one day, but nothing is rushed. Each richly drawn character plays a crucial part and as Ash uncovers the who, why, when, and how of this delicious mystery. And the ending had me wondering how the heroine could possibly be saved in time––and by whom. 

Poznansky pulls in current events and high technology in this fast-paced thriller, which gives the story even more appeal. Overdose will snag your interest, lure you in and won’t let go. I look forward to the next book in the series, Ash Suspense Thrillers With A Dash of Romance. I highly recommend Overdose––especially on a cold, spooky night.

Blurb

Months after recovering from coma, Ash discovers that the man who performed her brain surgery has a questionable medical experience and a dark past, starting with his medical mission in India ten years ago and ending just recently, with his wife’s suicide. Should Ash expose him, at the risk of becoming vulnerable to his revenge?

In an attempt to learn more, Ash goes on a date with him. When the waitress drops a pink cellphone into her hand, she is hit by a bullet. On the cellphone are his wife’s last words. “Perhaps you have the urge to shut me off, or at least to ignore what I’m about to say. But listen you must, because even if you don’t believe it, you’re already much too close to danger… Neil is my undoing. Make sure he isn’t yours.”

Casi’s Crème de la Crème

I Want It All

As an author, I’m a tough sell when it comes to books. My standards are off the charts. If a story doesn’t grab me on page one, I rarely finish the first chapter. I devour well-written books with characters who stay with me long after the story ends, and I love to be swept away, lured into turning each page, twists, turns, mystery, intrigue, romance…you get the picture. If I demand those standareds in every book I write, why should I settle for less in the stories I read? I want it all––the crème de la crème! I’m too busy for anything less. Aren’t you?

Review swaps…not going to happen. I won’t trade my integrity for five stars. But if a book is in a genre I love and someone I know reccommends the story, I’m there. I’ll give it read and if I love it, I’m a loyal fan.

So, why am I blogging about books I love? Because YOU deserve the best! Every year, between 600,000 and 1,000,000 books are published in the United States alone. Many––perhaps as much as half or more––are self-published. But, on average, most sell less than 250 copies. These Days, anyone can publish a book…so choosing which ones to read can be challenging at best. And even if you read all the reviews, you’ll see conflicting comments.

I don’t claim to be a critic, nor would I want to be, but after teaching creative writing and drama for 20+ years and earning the title USA Today Bestselling Author, I know what works when it comes to writing. And I want to share the best books I read with you, my friends, family, and fans. I post some wonderful books in my newsletter along with crazy-good deals, but the crème de la crème I’ll post here on my website. Rest assured, if I recommend a book, the author and story earned my personal stamp of approval. These writers won’t be authors we all know and love, like John Grisham, Sandra Brown, or Diana Gabaldon…but I truly believe you’ll enjoy their work…try them…you just might find a hot NEW favorite!
