Recommend Me Books – Romantic Suspense

Hi, guys… I’ve decided to make a new weekly post here on Geybie’s Book Blog. So, since I started blogging, one thing I’ve always loved.. visiting other bloggers and looking for new book recommendations–specific themes I’m in the mood for at the moment. I’ve thought about doing this post for a while, first to help myself and hopefully can help others who are looking for the same kinds of books. I want this to be a weekly post. Please share your recommendations in the comments below and I will add them to this post with your name and links. So, this week, I’m in the mood for romantic suspense books.
