During this episode of “The Romantic Side of Suspense” podcast, you’ll hear from five authors about their romantic suspense books available this month. Here’s the list of authors and books for August 2023, with the book’s release date if not available now.
Multi-published author Tara Grace Ericson recently stopped by my blog to share some about her writing life.
Why do you like writing romantic suspense? I wrote 15 romance novels before I ventured into suspense. I love the added complexity of the plot—the external challenges and high stakes for the characters. I love the way the romance and the suspense weave together into a multidimensional story that keeps you on the edge of your seat but also delivers the swoony kisses and emotional connection between the characters. I love that romantic suspense is such a wide range of books from pure romance with a dash of suspense to fast-paced thrillers with just a light thread of romance.
How do you ensure your books are accurate? An engineer by training, I love learning about topics of all kinds. Research for me includes everything from internet (including YouTube!), visiting locations, or talking to people who have expertise. In my book Hostile Intent, the main character is the CEO of a pharmaceutical company doing cutting edge Alzheimer’s treatment research. I ended up having to change the story when I found some of the current promising research was actually in gene therapies, not medication!
What does your family think of you reading romantic suspense? Well, my husband loves it. He hadn’t read any of my romance novels, but he’s read my romantic suspense books! I also found out that my mom was a forensic radiographer before I was born (she took X-rays of murder victims), something she hadn’t shared with me until I was writing about my own mysteries.

Her stories of faith, hope, and happily ever after encourage readers from all walks of life with their memorable characters and uplifting plots.

A presidential assassin is on the loose, and Hannah is the key to unlocking his identity.
But it’s her own identity that is going to blow up the entire operation—and her future with the hero who saved her.
Ex-special forces commando Will Gilbert is leading a black op tasked with bringing down the presidential assassin. When his team rescues a woman who witnessed the fatal shot, protecting her becomes just as important as finding their target and keeping the entire thing under wraps. Behind those scared eyes, this woman has the answers they need to finish the mission.
Struggling journalist Hannah Stone was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or was it the right time? A Pulitzer is practically guaranteed if she can manage to escape without being killed. All she has to do is help Will and his team capture the shooter—without revealing her own identity as a reporter. Or just why she was at the hotel that day in the first place.
Pursuing the shooter and targeted by a powerful enemy, Will and Hannah face impossible odds. While her heart is quickly becoming tangled with his, Hannah hides her identity from the man trying desperately to save her.
