SYNOPSIS:
Tevan Zaber wants to be a detective. But how far is he willing to go to get it? Thrust into the dark underworld of real vampires, reality begins to blur into the society of role-playing. Can Krystal Braxton, who wrestles with her own demons, save Tevan from becoming one of them? Together they must infiltrate the occult covens to save the city from a blood-thirsty killer resurrected from a year’s old case as they enlist the help of Fairview Park’s lieutenant, Cole Kincaid.READ AN EXCERPT: http://tinyurl.com/77cu9s3 WATCH THE BOOK TRAILER: http://youtu.be/ND1jH3zzuO4 REVIEWS:

“If possible, The Hour Before Dawn is even better than Deadly Obsession. Patricia Rasey has done a fantastic job in continuing Deadly Obsession in this story. The Hour Before Dawn would do well as a stand-alone novel as well. Again, we have a flawed hero, dealing with his failed marriage. Add to this, one really wounded heroine in Krystal, trying to deal with the abuse of her father, and we have one fantastic story, in addition to the solving of the murders and delving into the Vampyre Society of today. If you like romantic suspense, don’t miss this one!” ~ Chere Gruver for Romance Junkies

“Patricia Rasey takes you on a wild ride through the dark side of life with this intriguing story. Prepare to be blown away by the killer. If you weren’t a fan before, you definitely will be now!” ~Kathy Boswell for RT Book Reviews

“Just the creative voyeuristic thrill of briefly living in this world, by way of the path blazed by author Patricia Rasey, is enough to make THE HOUR BEFORE DAWN a must read. Daring and bold, Rasey presents the shadowy world of vampyres with a unique darkness that proves mesmerizing. The style is fiercely unrelenting, marking Rasey indelibly as a harsh truth teller. Although her genre is fiction, her characters are real and frightening, and not even main characters are safe from the evil that haunts Rasey’s work. Further, Rasey’s exploration of self-mutilation is both knowledgeable and tasteful, lending a shocking vulnerability to a striking character. Indeed, THE HOUR BEFORE DAWN is gripping, gritty, and fascinating, coming very highly recommended.” ~Cindy Penn for Word Weaving

“THE HOUR BEFORE DAWN is a thrill-read, intense, fast and unpredictable. The reader will be tempted to “close your eyes and don’t look” but from the first grizzly murder to the last, the reader is glued to the pages waiting breathlessly for the killer to be unmasked and brought down…. For an adrenaline rushing read, I highly recommend THE HOUR BEFORE DAWN.” ~Terrie Figueroa for Romance Reviews Today

REVIEWS:

I received this book to review three days ago, and I haven’t put it down since. Seriously. It’s that good! It is a very interesting read and keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time.I was a little concerned about the book’s focus on tennis, since I am not really a big sports fan. But, that definitely didn’t stand in the way of me enjoying the book. This book is a great read, especially if you are a romance lover like myself! It keeps you guessing, and you are always wondering what is going to happen next. I really like how fleshed out the characters are, they were easy to imagine and easy to relate to. I felt like I really got to know all of the characters while still keeping on pace with the story. Perfect balance!

I could not put this book down because I always kept wanting to know what would happen next. Great story line, the characters were well developed and I loved the ending. Please do not pass this book up. You do not have to be a fan of tennis to enjoy it as much as I did. Trust me you will not want to stop reading it.
Emily

From the get go you feel the sexual tension between these two and it’s a fun and entertaining ride to the end. I was very impressed with the fast pace of the story and how well it kept my interest. Even during the tennis games it kept my interest.
Rebecca Bryant
Goodreads

I enjoyed this book, because it is a romance that felt more unpredictable and surprising than most of the romances I have read. The romantic tension between Lizzie and Jack is tangible. The ending is not predictable.
Florence Mims
Goodreads

Starling is able to develop the characters nicely and you are really able to relate to Lizzie. She is definitely not a Mary Sue! I was actually interested in reading what was going to happen next. That does notusually happen with romances. I can pretty much figure out who is going to end up with who. Starling is able to keep you guessing.
Lana Bradstream
Goodreads
A highly entertaining read for all those who love tennis and smouldering romance between athletes”
How many of you have watched the movie Wimbledon? If you enjoyed it, you will definitely enjoy this book. The characters in this story are all highly entertaining whether the main lead or supporting characters. The pace of the story is fast and fun, you will not get bored even during the game.

Texas Ranger Jase Strachan is also after Meese, for crimes committed in Texas. He joins forces with the young boy in a journey that takes them to Fortuna, where a murder interrupts their mission. Jase is duty bound to find the killer, no matter the cost.

Marly carries out her own investigation and comes to the aid of Amabelle Egan, the sister of one of the suspects. But appearances are deceiving, and Marly is mistaken for Amabelle’s suitor, making her a target for the killer. Not to mention, Charlie Meese is still out there.

Under the Texas stars, Marly and Jase are drawn together by circumstances beyond their control, yet fate plots to tear them apart. Will Marly finally get her man?

REVIEWS:

A rollicking adventure of romance and True Grit… This is an historical Western romance in a style that reminds me of Hemingway. Although the descriptions are colorful and accurate, there are no wasted words here as the characters are developed through dialogue and action. The old West comes to life! Highly recommended. Goodreads http://tinyurl.com/cnpkuo7

Good old-fashioned historic western romance with a kick!
Alison Bruce does an excellent job on setting the scenes and customs of the old west. History, characterizations, and the long ride of the heroes of the story are convincing for the time. There is lots of action and gun-play as they work together on a case in Fortuna. … If you’re looking for a dish of the old west with a dash of romance and humor minus the raunch dressing, this book is for you.

REVIEWS:

“A fun, entertaining tale between a biker and a cop, KISS OF DECEIT whisks the reader along in a truly believable tale to hunt down the evidence in order to solve the mystery. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Rasey sets out markers to alert readers to the true identity of the happy scarf killer. While LeAnne and Snake learn the true meaning of love, the tale ends in a twist any police officer would think twice about before realizing that criminals will go to any length to cover up their crime of passion. “ Reviewed by Brenda Ramsbacher for Scribblers .

“This is one book I’m glad I didn’t miss. This was a book that kept me pretty riveted throughout the pages. It seemed so obvious who the killer actually was but Ms. Rasey managed at the very last minute to turn the tide and make you realize who the real killer was. That’s not always an easy feat and, since I’m not sure how many books Ms. Rasey has behind her, I thought that she turned that corner rather well, all things considered. Yes, I guessed, at the very last moment, who the real killer was but it was truly at the very last moment and I like when that happens. It means, to me, that an author has done the deed well.” Reviewed by Deborah Barber for Escape to Romance .

“Queen of suspense Patricia A. Rasey has another winner here. With seemingly effortless skill, this author has created an original, keenly suspenseful and deeply entertaining thriller that will make your heart skip and your pulse race to dangerous levels. Superb characterization, razor-sharp dialogue, and an excellent knowledge of police procedurals are only some of the fine qualities which make this a first-rate novel. The beginning will hook you. The middle will enslave your hands to the pages. The climax will leave you breathless. Definitely five stars!” Reviewed by Mayra Calvani for EbooksNBytes.com .

“KISS OF DECEIT is a tremendous police procedural with enough romance that will entice romantic suspense readers too. The story line moves faster than Snake’s Harley can go, but insures that he and LeAnne come across as real people. On the surface the lead protagonists seem opposite one another as he lives for the day in his grassroots lifestyle while she looks to the future yet both have deep senses of loyalty and duty. There are plenty of suspects with motives provided for each one. No deceit, this is a winner for those fans who enjoy a taut mystery with plenty of racy tension. Strongly recommend also reading Patricia A. Rasey’s backlist to include FAÇADE, DEADLY OBSESSION and THE HOUR BEFORE DAWN as this reviewer intends to do.” Harriet Klausner for The Best Reviews .
