So, the RITA Awards were on again a few days ago, and as usual I haven’t read most of the nominees or winners.
However, Brynn Kelly’s excellent Forbidden River won in the novella category, and I thought I’d draw your attention to it again (my review is in the link above).
Other winners HERE.
At the end of the earth, they’ll play a dangerous game…
French Foreign Legionnaire Cody Castillo—“Texas” to his fellow commandos—is an adrenalin-junkie. Chasing deadly thrills is his only reprieve from a bloodstained past he can’t forget. But when he finds himself caught in a mass murderer’s crosshairs in the lonely wilds of New Zealand, he finds an unexpected and intriguing ally.
Ex-air force pilot Tia Kupa has always found safety in nature, until a killer turns the wilderness into a playground. In this life-or-death game, the guarded woman who lives by the rules must rely on a risk taker with a death wish. The sexy devil-may-care legionnaire may be the wrong guy for her, but desire is just as primal as terror. Even if they outrun a predator, they can’t escape the sizzling bond neither of them saw coming.
