From the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Ache comes a blistering new novel filled with danger, secrecy, and a desire that can’t be sated…
Foreign war correspondent Tanner Thomas is addicted to living on the edge. Needing the adrenaline rush of his job to help him cope with a personal loss, he throws himself back into the game, concentrating all his energy on getting the next big story. But when he meets his new photojournalist, Beaux Croslyn, he can’t help but feel like he’s losing his focus—and maybe risking more…
With secrets she won’t address, Beaux is far from your ordinary woman. Determined to keep her distance, she’s willing to pull Tanner in closer and hide behind the sparks flying between them. But as Beaux’s past begins to put their relationship—and their lives—at risk, Tanner’s determination to find the truth puts them both in jeopardy.
He’s ready to chase her to the ends of the earth to find out if what they had was real, or if the danger surrounding them was just an exquisite heat fated to burn out….
HARD BEAT is an exciting and sensual story, set among the suspenseful world of foreign jounalists. Tanner and Beaux’s rocky story is sure to please fans of K. Bromberg and marks an impressive launch into romantic suspense!! I loved this very adult, very sexy story.
Ms. Bromberg has a very special place in my heart and I treasure each and every word she writes. Her characters feel very real to me, I connect with them and that emotional connection makes the difference between a good book and a great book. HARD BEAT is another unforgettable entry in the Driven world, but it can absolutely be read as a standalone book in case you have not had the pleasure of reading the earlier books.
I loved Tanner from his brief appearance as Rylee’s brother in the earlier books. He intrigued me, no doubt, so I was beyond thrilled when I heard he was getting his own book! And he is every bit the Alpha hero that I knew he would be! And Beaux…sexy. brilliant, ambitious…I expect nothing less from perfection in a K. Bromberg heroine and the author does not disappoint. The chemistry between the main characters was palpable, and their scenes together, perfection.
“She’s my little piece of Heaven in this land full of Hell.”
This book is filled with twists, turns, romance, heart-stopping action, and a story that could be literally lifted from current events. Tanner and Beaux are everything I come to expect from Ms. Bromberg’s characters. Without a doubt, HARD BEAT cements Ms. Bromberg’s rightfully-deserved best-selling status and I cannot wait for what she has in store next.
“I crush my lips to hers. Savoring her taste. Goddamn it. It’s everything I don’t want but crave all the same because it tempts me and calls on me to have more.”
