A diehard romantic looking to start over in a small town.
Dr. Nina Benitez might be an astrophysicist and a scientist down to her bones, but she also believes in true love and happily ever after—and won’t settle for anything less. After a rocky end to her first semester teaching at the University of Montana, she’s looking forward to a new school year and a fresh start in the small town of Rifle Creek. When she meets her roommate’s work partner, a sexy, hard-edged detective, Nina is immediately intrigued. However, it’s soon clear they’re like oil and water. But when she’s confronted by the painful past event she wanted to forget, she faces an even greater danger. A predator is bent on silencing her forever, and Nina’s only hope of survival is the unattainable man who’s captured her heart.
A cynical cop determined to guard his heart.
Tate Baldwin has dedicated his life to serving and protecting, first in the military, and now as a detective in Rifle Creek. Badly burned by his last relationship, he isn’t looking to get involved with anyone, especially a brilliant college professor who seems to have her head in the clouds. Yet even Tate can’t deny the attraction between them that soon grows into something more. And when a secret from her past triggers a lethal threat, Tate will risk everything to stand between her and the monster who wants her dead.

NICUnurse’s Review of Lethal Edge by Kaylea Cross
It’s no secret I’m a romantic suspense junkie. It finally dawned on me the other day what started it all. I cut my teeth on Nancy Drew mysteries, and while those aren’t romance books, they definitely planted the seeds of my love of mystery/thriller/suspense books. Then along came Nora Roberts, and being the avid gardener she is, she nurtured those seeds and caused them to grow amazingly well. Now, I have several favorite romantic suspense authors, and Kaylea Cross definitely is high-ranking on that favorites list. I might have missed some of her earlier books because my kids were little and demanded much more of my time, which left precious few hours I could devote to reading. But I’ve devoured almost every book of hers since I was lucky enough to stumble onto my first Kaylea Cross book somewhere around 2014. None of them have disappointed me and neither did Lethal Edge.
What I liked about the book: Obviously, the mystery is first and foremost. Her plots are well thought out and the breadcrumbs always seem to be just enough to keep you reading without giving it all away until just the right moment. But my favorite part of this book is our heroine. She’s smart. Sassy. Fun. Unique. And despite having lived through something very horrible, it hasn’t taken away her joy of living her life to the absolute fullest. I love the diversity of Kaylea Cross’s characters. They never seem to fit a certain mold or pattern. Of course, there’s a swoony hero. He’s her compliment, but she’s no shrinking violet. Oh…the food wars was a fun side story too!
NICUnurse’s Rating: Please don’t ever start a book by Kaylea Cross at bedtime. Just trust me on this one. Her books are usually fast-paced page-turners, and you will finish them sometime around 4 am. Lethal Edge will do the same thing to you. I feel like I say this each time I review one of her books, but it’s so true for me: It’s really hard to be disappointed in anything written by Kaylea Cross. Lethal Edge was a gripping, fast-paced story that had me sucked in from page one to the very end.
I give Lethal Edge by Kaylea Cross 4.5 out of 5 propellers!
