"Exhilarating romantic suspense"
Three weeks ago while on an investigation Chester Daily
Press reporter Regina Foxworth almost died in a burning
building (see MEN OF COURAGE, "Trapped"). Even before that
incident, Regina seemed fearful for her life, but the
Chester, Ohio police including evidence technician Riley
Moore thought nothing of her concern. Riley has changed
his mind because he now knows Regina from his teaching her
the art of self-defense and his love he hides from her at
this time as he vows to keep his beloved "Red" safe.
Riley stays close to Regina not just to protect her, but
because he has too deep inside his heart. Regina surprises
herself because she actually feels safe when she is with
Riley, who she is falling in love with rather quickly.
However, as dangerous incidents begin happening, Riley
takes the threat more seriously even while Regina wants him
to stay away so that the man she loves remains alive.
RILEY, the sequel to Trapped, is an exhilarating
romantic suspense that stars two delightful lead
protagonists who heat the sheets of the novel more than the
inferno that almost killed Regina in the previous tale.
Ethan and Rosie, as well as other friends return, but
though the audience will appreciate them and the first
story, this book fully stands alone as recalls are smoothly
used to bring in pertinent information. Fans will enjoy
this thriller due to the taut suspense filled plot with
endearing protagonists. Any one who has read Lori Foster
will be unable to SAY NO TO JOE when he stars in Ms.
Foster's next tale.

Regina Foxworth has no clue why an unknown assailant is out
to get a small-town reporter like her. Or why the police
won't take her concerns seriously. So Regina gets a guard
dog — make that a four-pound "guard" Chihuahua! — and signs
up for self-defense classes. But defending herself is not
on her mind when sexy instructor Riley Moore has her pinned
to the mat.
With Regina vulnerable beneath him on his gym floor, Riley
breaks out in a possessive sweat. He wants her, but first
he has to protect her. She needs more than her "don't-muss-
my-hair" style of defense and that ridiculous so-called
dog. Riley is ex-SWAT — and his new life as an evidence
tech hasn't softened his lethal training one bit. But
Regina isn't quite the princess she seems, and she's about
to catch him off guard.
