Sean McCloud has loved Liv Endicott for years. Fifteen years ago, though, he sent her away because he didn’t want to endanger her life. Now she’s back. Someone is threatening her and Sean doesn’t like it. He will do anything he can to make sure the woman that he still loves is safe.

When a stalker burns down Liv’s bookstore, she’s devastated. Then, out of the blue, Sean McCloud appears. Liv has never forgiven him for the hurtful way he sent her away from him years ago. Yet, she can’t deny that she’s still attracted to him, and still cares for him, too.

Despite protests from her parents, security specialist Sean decides that Liv needs his help to stay safe. After he rescues her from her stalker, she decides that he is right. Sean soon figures out that Liv’s problems are connected with the death of his brother, Kevin, fifteen years ago, and to the mysterious Midnight Project.

Edge of Midnight is the fourth romantic suspense book featuring the McCloud Brothers but the first one I’ve read. All I can ask myself is -- what took me so long to find these books?

Jammed packed with adventure, suspense and hot sex, Edge of Midnight is a twisting-turning roller coaster ride of a novel. And I loved each word. Ms. McKenna has packed her novel full of strong characters, both male and female, that jump off the page and pull you into the novel alongside them.

I felt the characters’ pain, sorrow, joy and laughter right along with them. I love a book that grabs hold and doesn’t let go, and this one definitely does. As a testament to how much I enjoyed it, and the glimpses of not only of Sean and Liv, but of his brothers and their friends, I will be hunting up each and every one of Ms. McKenna’s other novels.

If you like your romantic suspense full of action, with characters who are not afraid to tell it like it is and live very large, then Edge of Midnight is for you. I know it is a Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Read for me.
