Maybe I did. Dana marton. The spy who saved christmas

Maybe I did. The spy who saved christmas. Dana Marton is the author of more than a dozen fast-paced, action-adventure romantic suspense novels and a winner of the Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence. She loves writing books of international intrigue, filled with dangerous plots that try her tough-as-nails heroes and the special women they fall in love with.

Lara fought, blind with fear and anger. She’d grieved for him when his bakery had burned, with him inside, hours after she’d left him that night. She’d grieved for him when his bakery had burned, with him inside, hours after she’d left him that night was pregnant, grieved for her babies who would have to grow up without a father. But he hadn’t been dead. He’d been alive; he just hadn’t cared enough to tell her, too busy taking knockout blondes to dinner. He was involved in some nasty stuff, probably organized crime or drug dealing or something. God, what an idiot she’d been. I go to your grave almost every Sunday, you jerk.

The Spy and the heroine really come across as people who are real and likeable not just characters on paper. That really makes a difference when reading a book if the characters seem like they could just come and knock on your door.

In one unforgettable moment, Lara Jordan broke all the rules in her play-it-safe handbook and spent an incredible night with Reid Graham, a practical stranger. But before she even had time to bask in her fearlessness, a suspicious fire stole him away and left her pregnant, heartbroken and alone. Until now. Walking back into Lara's life after two years was never on the operative's agenda. Unfortunately, remaining "dead" was no longer an option once their baby boys were kidnapped

The suspense in The Spy Who Saved Christmas is ramped up and what I really loved about it is it was gritty. This the first Dana Marton book and wow what a great first book for me. Thhis book is action packed from start to finish. It keeps a nice pace throughout.

The suspense in The Spy Who Saved Christmas is ramped up and what I really loved about it is it was gritty. The hero breaks people’s necks and others die around him. Although a bio-terrorist plot in a small Pennsylvania town may be a little out there, the actual violence and risk that the characters are put in was very well done.

The Spy Who Saved Christmas. IN HIS PROTECTIVE CUSTODYDespite the fringe benefits of watching over Nicola Barrington, her covert "bodyguard" itched to get back into the fray. In one unforgettable moment, Lara Jordan broke all the rules in her play-it-safe handbook and spent an incredible night with Reid Graham, a practical stranger.

Rating 2.5 stars. __Contains graphic sexual content.
Note: Stand alone read. The 10th in the loosely connected SDDU series

EASY READ! Likable characters, menacing bad guys, and good action sequences. HOWEVER, the storyline is overly contrived, there is no reason the bad guys take the twins and leave the mother behind, the story is fragmented jumping from one point to another without adequate connection, and the writing is uneven and just drags in places.

THE STORY revolves around loner, SDDU Agent Reid Graham, who spends a night with love struck Lara Jordan, while working undercover in a bakery. But the fiery destruction of the building and a burned body, leaves now pregnant Lara, believing he is dead. After more than two years of fanaticizing and grieving for Reid, she unexpectedly runs into him again, working undercover to get his hands on a CD of terrorist's plans. They winds up in the middle of a shootout and escape in the same car. The bad guys apparently jump to the conclusion she is his family, track her down, and steal her 14-month old twins from a safe house, but leave her behind. Reid and Lara then spend time working together to find the twins and get them back.

OVERALL, strong characters, but the bumpy plot overwhelms the romance. D. Marton is an exciting writer, but this story is not even close to her best. Try one of her other books instead.

The SDDU series: Shadow Soldier, Secret Soldier, The Sheik's Safety, Camouflage Heart, Rogue Soldier, Protective Measures, 72 Hours, Tall, Dark and Lethal, The Socialite and the Bodyguard, The Spy who Saved Christmas, Last Spy Standing, Spy Hard, and The Spy Wore Spurs.

You may also enjoy the complex characters and storytelling of N. Bruhns, A. Stuart, L. L. Miller, R. C. Ryan, or L. Wilde. For good mystery/suspense writers you might try J. D. Robb, D. Stabenow, M. Ferris, J. Evanovich, S. W. Albert, Gayle Wilson, Julie Miller or B.J Daniels.

'The Spy Who Saved Christmas' by Dana Marton made it's debut via Harlequin Intrigue in 2010. However, this book is timeless. It reads as good today as it did two years ago. It's the perfect read at Christmas time, but not so thickly laced with Christmas that it couldn't be read in June.

Lara Jordan always played by the book. She was the perfect girl next door. She never raised an eyebrow or stood out in her small town. That is until she takes over her uncle's butcher shop and finds more than delicious pastry at the bakery next door. At the time, she doesn't realize that bad boy Reid Graham isn't just a baker. All she knows is he makes her heart melt with just a look and in an incredibly short time he talks her out of her virginity. Later that night, an explosion erupts and both the bakery and the butcher shop are burned to the ground. Lara's world is turned upside down. The man she was falling in love with is dead and she learns she is pregnant with his child or, shall I say, children. She is pregnant with his twin sons.

Almost two years later, Lara finds herself on a date with a boring, yet stable man. Reid is just a precious memory until her eyes wonder to the other side of the restaurant and she spots him on a date with another woman. Furious and ready to demand answers, Lara approaches Reid who is certain she will blow his cover. Before they can mince words, gunfire breaks out. Reid's companion is shot dead and he has no choice but to take Lara to safety with him. Lara learns Reid is a spy working for a covert government agency and his stint as a baker was only a cover. She also learns that while he regretted leaving her and hasn't stopped thinking about her, he is already planning to disappear again. That is until he learns that he is the father of her two children.

Reid is deep undercover trying to take down a homegrown terrorist ring. Trouble is on his tail and won't rest until he and everyone he comes in contact with is dead. When the twins are taken hostage Lara and Reid must work together to get their sons back. Can they do it in time? Will Reid runaway again or will love and family keep his heart from allowing that to happen?

FBI, spies, covert operations, and suspense all add to the excitement of this romantic suspense novel. The heroine is a strong, independent woman who puts her children above everything in her life. She is down to Earth and very likable. The hero, pretend to be a tough, bad guy but under all those muscles, he is just a teddy bear. Who doesn't love a hunk who is also a loving father?

Dana Marton beautifully blends romance and suspense to create the perfect excitement and page turning novel. She also has a way of making her characters jump to life. They are strong and believable. There are often times just a line or two coming from a character will make the reader laugh out loud and think, "that's happened to me."

This is another instalment of the SDDU series. I have generally loved this series from start to finish. I only found a couple of stories that I didnt like as much as the others but this wasnt one of them. The Spy Who Saved Christmas was a really great read. I laughed on and off all through this one. I found the humour great and the suspense and mystery just as good. Again Dana Marton has found just the right combination.

The Spy and the heroine really come across as people who are real and likeable not just characters on paper. That really makes a difference when reading a book if the characters seem like they could just come and knock on your door. It really stops a book from being ho-hum and just another spy/mystery offering. If you like a mystery just a little off-beat and slightly cheeky then you will enjoy this one.

Well written! Well done, again, Dana! Love the characters, the plot and the love connection. Dana writes intimate, sensual, and steamy love making between her main characters without making it sound like disgusting, porn-like hook ups-Many other authors need to read her books first before they write...A MUST READ!!!!!
