STRIKING DISTANCE is honest to God some of the best Romantic Suspense you will ever read. With nonstop action, intense emotions and a stellar cast of characters, you’ll be feeling more than just pulse-pounding adrenaline and suspense when you read this book. ~ Under the Covers

STRIKING DISTANCE is one of the most anticipated books for me this year. As a die-hard I-Team fangirl, waiting for this book was pure agony. Waiting years for it? Hell. But once I had this little baby in my hand, I found it nearly impossible to stop reading. Clare has a gift and it’s a rare one. But she uses it with care and a lot of deliberation. Her writing is always highly detailed, always on point and doesn’t waste any time with any unnecessary things.

As the sixth book in one of my all-time favourite series, Clare introduces Javier Corbray, a SEAL with a latin flare. His accent, his guitar playing and his sweet words are almost too good to be true but for one lucky lady, Laura Nilsson gets to call him her own.

But before the HEA, there is a lot that they have to go through in order to get there. And I mean, A LOT. If you’ve read Clare before, then you know what to expect – high-octane action, incredible detail and gut-wrenching emotion. If I had to describe this book in one word, it would be: INTENSE. Everything about this book, from the action, the emotions, the sex – it’s all intense and highly entertaining. You can be sure that there is never a dull moment in this book. I, myself, was holding my breath as some of the scenes played out.

By far my favourite thing about this book though is the reappearance of all my favourite characters in the previous books. I honestly adore these characters so much that I physically sat up and smiled whenever they made an appearance. I don’t know what it is about these characters, but after having read their books years ago, I still feel a connection to them and their stories. To me, that’s something special and not a lot of authors can accomplish. After finishing, STRIKING DISTANCE, I’m sure Javier and Laura will burrow in and find their own special spots in your hearts as well.

STRIKING DISTANCE is honest to God some of the best Romantic Suspense you will ever read. With nonstop action, intense emotions and a stellar cast of characters, you’ll be feeling more than just pulse-pounding adrenaline and suspense when you read this book. You’ll feel Javier and Laura’s fiery passion as well.

Hold on to your seats, readers, because when Clare strikes back, she does it in a big way!

About Pamela Clare

USA Today best-selling author Pamela Clare began her writing career as a columnist and investigative reporter and eventually became the first woman editor-in-chief of two different newspapers. Along the way, she and her team won numerous state and national honors, including the First Amendment Award and the National Journalism Award for Public Service. This year, she was honored by the Colorado Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists with their Keeper of the Flame Lifetime Achievement Award for her work. A single mother with two college-aged sons, she writes historical romance and contemporary romantic suspense within view of Colorado’s beautiful Rocky Mountains. She is a RITA finalist (Surrender, 2006) and a three-time Daphne du Maurier finalist (I-Team series). She loves history, having studied archaeology in college, and has traveled extensively, living for almost three years in Denmark, which feels like home to her. She attributes her love of historical romance with the years she spent visiting ruins and castles in Europe.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
