Samantha Holland thrives at her job as D.C. Metro Police lieutenant, so when the day starts with the discovery of a “floater,” a murdered woman found drifting atop the Anacostia River, Sam bristles with energy to tackle the case. But just as she sinks her teeth into the details of the crime, Sam is grabbed by a couple of suits who hustle her into a dark SUV.
As it turns out, her other role as wife of the sexy, young Vice President Nick Cappuano is taking precedence. The lives of Nick and everyone close to him have been threatened, and within hours Sam and Nick’s entire extended family, including their adopted son, Scottie, are sequestered in a dark bunker out of harm’s way. When Sam is finally allowed to leave the bunker and return to work, the press is awash in negative stories about both Sam and Nick, revealing secrets publicly that they have never shared with each other.
This compelling romantic suspense novel has all the right elements to keep the reader turning pages, whether engaged in the seamy details of the case or the steamy elements of Sam’s relationship with her hot, green-eyed husband. Marie Force, a New York Times bestselling author, excels at creating living, breathing characters and tangling them up in a believable, compelling plot. Fatal Threat is the 11th book in Force’s Fatal series of romantic thrillers, and Force shows no signs of slowing down.
