She lost everything once…

Autumn Perez was just twenty-two when she witnessed a brutal murder and gave up her entire life to put the killer behind bars. A decade later, witness protection has her settled in picturesque Verona Bay, teaching art at the local high school. It’s a quiet life…until she’s caught up in another harrowing event and she worries that the US Marshals will try to move her again. But Autumn is done running—she’s built a life, has friends. And now she’s pregnant after an intense one-night stand with her sexy neighbor.

This time she’s not running…

Lincoln Jordan has been biding his time with Autumn, his talented, gorgeous neighbor. The attraction between them is undeniable, and after their one incredible night together he wants more. But she’s determined to keep him at arm’s length. When it becomes clear that someone wants her dead, he steps up to protect her. He needs to earn her trust, and fast. Because the enemy is closer than they ever imagined.

NICUnurse’s Review of Deadly Past by Katie Reus

Deadly Past is the second book in the Verona Bay series. It’s been a while since the first Verona Bay series book released (be sure to check out Dark Memento!), so I was more than ready for Deadly Past to hit my Kindle. Katie Reus is one of my automatic 1-click authors and has been for a while. Her characters are easy to relate to and get to know (and I usually love them all). Her plots are always well thought out. And the mystery/suspense is always fresh. (She also writes some great PNR books, so if that’s your jam, be sure to check those out, as well.) 

Honestly, though. Sometimes an author’s work just resonates with you from the get-go and you will snatch up every book they release, and that’s exactly how I feel about Katie Reus’s romantic suspense books. I tend to simply devour them. As in, I have to set aside several hours when I pick one up because I’m not putting it down until I’m done. And Deadly Past was no exception. 

Full of romance, mystery, fast-paced action, and characters you can’t help but fall in love with (the Jordan brothers might just be my new favorites!), Deadly past is another checkmark in the win column for Katie Reus. 

NICUnurse’s Rating: I give Deadly Past by Katie Reus 5 out of 5 propellers!




Katie Reus is the New York Times, USA Today, and IndieReader bestselling author of the Red Stone Security series, the Moon Shifter series and the Deadly Ops series. She fell in love with romance at a young age thanks to books she pilfered from her mom’s stash. Years later she loves reading romance almost as much as she loves writing it.

However, she didn’t always know she wanted to be a writer. After changing majors many times, she finally graduated summa cum laude with a degree in psychology. Not long after that, she discovered a new love. Writing. She now spends her days writing dark paranormal romance and sexy romantic suspense. Her book Avenger’s Heat recently won the Georgia RWA Maggie Award for Excellence in the fantasy/paranormal category.
