~ Under the Covers
When Detective Seth Harding responds to a shots fired call, the last thing he expects is to find a child chained in the basement and his seeming kidnappers murdered in their bed. But, who is the child? But rescuing from his, now deceased, kidnappers is just the beginning, the child is still in danger and by helping him Seth is also putting his own family in the line of fire.
Melinda Leigh is fast becoming an auto-buy author for me, every book of hers that I have read I have really enjoyed and Twisted Truth is no exception. It is a novella and the start of the Rogue Justice series, with a different author writing the second book. I haven’t read any of Leigh’s back list, however, I get the impression that these will be characters that you have seen before. However, although this has prompted me to try and find which particular book they are from, it didn’t take away from my understanding nor enjoyment of this book.
What I liked about this book was that Leigh managed to create fantastic atmosphere in a very short space of time. This book is set in a small town and it is becoming increasingly isolated as a big storm is coming in, cutting the characters off from assistance. It all adds to the sense of urgency and danger created by the discovery of the murders and the child. As the book goes on you discover some answers…only it just leaves you with more questions. Questions that I hope will be answered in the next novella written by a new author to me, Kendra Elliot.
This was a great launch into the Rogue Justice series, not only does Leigh create a great atmosphere, but a brief glimpse into these characters lives has got me intrigued enough that I will be looking for more.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
