Kelsey Quinn set out to trace a murder victim. Now she may become one. The dead don’t speak, but Kelsey knows their secrets. As a forensic anthropologist at the Delphi Center crime lab, Kelsey makes it her mission to identify bodies using no more than shards of bone, and her find at a remote Philippines dig hints at a sinister story. When Kelsey’s search for answers puts her at the scene of her exfiancĂ©’s murder, only one man can help her. The same man who broke her heart just months before, and who is also a prime suspect.

 Faced with an ultimatum— Kelsey or his job—Gage Brewer did the only thing a Navy SEAL could . . . but that doesn’t mean he stopped wanting Kelsey. Now Kelsey is running for her life and Gage is her last line of defense. As the threats escalate, Kelsey realizes this conspiracy goes deeper and higher than they could have guessed. With the clock ticking down on a madman’s plot, the slightest misstep will have unthinkable consequences. . . .

If you haven't started the Tracer Series by Laura Griffin, well all I can say is "WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?"  Laura writes one of the BEST Romance Suspense Series on the Market and I HIGHLY recommend starting the series now, that way you will be ready for SCORCHED at the end of this month.

SCORCHED centers around Kelsey Quinn and Gage Brewer, who you would have met if you read UNSTOPPABLE, the novella where their relationship first began.  I for one, was so psyched when I found out that SCORCHED was going to be about Kelsey and Gage, and I will be honest, I think Kelsey and Gage are my new Favorite Tracer Couple, well...ok....I'll put them in a tie with Alex and Nathan...but Kelsey and Gage...boy did they put my heart in knots.

"It can be anything?" His voice was low and dangerous as he searched her face.

He kissed her on the mouth and her skin started to tingle.  "Any fantasy at all?"
"Yes," she whispered.

He leaned down and his breath was warm against her ear.  "Give us another chance."
SERIOUSLY...did your heart not just SWOON...I could just read this book over and over again and still never get sick of Kelsey and Gage.  Between Kelsey trying to stay alive, keeping her heart out of the equation and Gage trying to be her white-knight while breaking down the walls that she is trying to build, it makes for one emotional romance, with a wild ride suspense plot that will have you saying, "OMG!"

Laura Griffin captivates me EVERY SINGLE TIME with her imaginative story lines and amazingly descriptive scenes that put you right in the middle of the action.  I simply LOVE what she does!!

Maybe thirty or so pages into this book, I actually had to email Laura and ask her if we would be seeing two of the secondary characters again, and if they would have their own romance, because I was not only taken by what was happening between Kelsey and Gage, but I wanted to know where the flirty banter between Gage's friend, Derek Vaughn and Agent Elizabeth LeBlanc would be going, and I needed to make sure that we would see them again. 

SCORCHED kicks major butt.  If you are looking for a thrilling suspense that will keep you reading late into the night, and a romance that burns up the sheets, then pre-order your copy of SCORCHED today!!  Definitely one of The Best Romances of 2012.

Highly recommended read, as well as, the rest of the TRACERS Series, which you can learn about here,

I think you've reviewed the Tracer series before, no? I know I've heard of laurra Griffin, I just never get the chance to read these days :/

Linda Kage said...

Oh my. I haven't read a Tracer book yet, which makes me wonder WHY?! I love Navy SEAL stories. Looks like I'm not the only one. We all better get crackin' and catch up, huh?!

Alison said...

I have been dying for more of Gage and Kelsey since UNSTOPPABLE! I love all of Laura's couples, but one of my faves was Sophie and Jonah.

Jane said...

I can't wait to read Kelsey and Gage's book. My favorite Tracers couple is Allison and Mark. I initially wasn't sure about the age gap between them, but they complemented each other nicely.

I havent read any Tracer books either. But I will now. Have to see what I am missing.

Cindy said...

My favorite couple is Alex and Nathan from "Untraceable", the first book in the series. They were a great couple and got me hooked!

I love the Tracer series and it is so hard to choose a favorite. I really liked Mia and Ric, but I think Sophia and Johah are my favorites so far. So looking forward to the release of Scorched! Thanks for the chance to win!

I have read and loved every book she has written and am waiting for Scorched to download as it is pre-ordered. I loved Jonah and Sophia but truly loved all the characters and love how they are intertwined throughout the books.

Amy Valentini said...

Wow, count me in. I'm very interested! Don't have a fave Tracer couple yet but I'm anxious to meet them. : )

I haven't read her previous books so I don't have a favorite Tracer couple yet.

Courtney and Will! She is his complete opposite. She is a bad-ass with a not so great upbringing and past, and he is this tough sexy serious detective. She will not be told what to do. I love that he got her to trust him. He knew she was innocent all along and although she wasnt being honest with the details of the case, he wanted to prove it and get her out of trouble. I love that he came looking for her and they fell in love. I love that all these books use the same characters. I cant wait to get scorched!

I love the Tracers and super excited for more Kelsey/Gage. It is impossible to choose a favorite couple, though!
