Waiting on Wednesday 5/18: Darkness at Dawn

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

There are so many books that I’m looking forward to reading, yet every week I draw a blank when it comes to the WoW post. It must be due to the midweek slump. Anyhow, I picked Darkness at Dawn by Elizabeth Jennings from my list of Kindle pre-orders.

Nobody knows better than Lucy Merritt what duty can cost. Her CIA operative parents gave their lives for a mission in the Himalayan Kingdom of Nhala, and as a result, Lucy was determined to make a safe and comfortable life for herself, becoming an expert restorer of manuscripts.

Captain Mike Shafer, Tenth Mountain Division, US Army, is dedicated to keeping his country safe. Intel from a dead CIA operative in Nhala points to a deadly threat that could wipe out entire populations. When Lucy is called to Nhala to restore the manuscript of an ancient prophesy, it’s his chance to stop the threat cold. He is ready and willing to put himself on the firing line—only not with the beautiful woman who’s been assigned to him. No matter how smart she is, she’s a tempting distraction.

Now Mike and Lucy must learn to work together to stop this global threat. Mike thought he understood courage, but when she does the bravest thing he’s ever seen, he vows to carry a badly wounded Lucy across a frozen wasteland to save this magnificent woman—and the world.

I always find myself drawn to romantic suspense even though I don’t read very much of it. I can’t tell you why this is, especially because I like action movies and TV thrillers–for instance my husband and I have been watching MI-5 on Netflix instant play.

What about you? Do you like romantic suspense or suspense novels in general? Or are there any genres you think you should like but don’t?
