old – uh, make that a long-time reader of Sandra Brown. I still remember some of her earlier, cheesy-yet-fun romance novels. I loved it when she veered over toward the thriller market. Seeing Red is a good combination of mystery, thriller, and romance. Here’s how it begins:
“Did you think you were going to die?”
The Major pursed his lips with disapproval. “That question wasn’t on the list I approved.”
“Which is why I didn’t ask it while the cameras were rolling. But there’s no one here now but us. I’m asking off the record. Were you in fear of your life? Did dying cross your mind?”
“I didn’t stop to think about it.”
