“I thought you sold to anyone who wanted a weapon?” He tosses the cotton ball into the garbage. “What did you call it? Equal opportunity industry.”
Major Threat introduces the readers to the two main characters. Taking turns, Avery Yakushev and Shannon Holmes tell us about their lives and show us how they met. It is a fast paced read with a pleasant flow.
With Major Threat, Charlotte Raine has created the intriguing first part of a new trilogy. Major Threat is a well balanced short romantic suspense read with interesting characters. The author slowly reveals more, making me want to immediately proceed with the second instalment. I was drawn into the story, an invisible and close bystander. Major Threat is a good read for romantic suspense fans, who like to read short stories with a slow and steady increase of thrill.
This is a very pleasant read, the promising start of a trilogy.

About the author
When she is not writing you will find her after a long day of skiing at one of the many lodges in Vail. She will most likely be next to a warm fire, drinking a glass of wine and telling stories.
