We're celebrating the release of HARD TARGET by Marquita Valentine!
Title: Hard Target (Target #2)
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 23, 2016
Ten years ago, Benjamin Romanov left behind a world of violence and intrigue. Now he’s living the dream as the chief technology officer at PharmGen, the world’s largest provider of vaccinations. The perks are amazing—a luxury penthouse, fast car, and his pick of women. The only downside to his job is reporting employees for less than scrupulous e-mail practices, but when he is forced to confront an employee in the lab, he ends up preventing a security guard from killing an innocent woman.
Receptionist Morgan Tanner never meant to get caught in the crosshairs of a deal gone wrong. All she wanted was one night of excitement with the sexy and elusive Benjamin Romanov. But now they’re on the run, and Benjamin thinks she has something to do with why everyone wants to kill them. Only she has no idea what’s going on at all—she was only in the lab to deliver a time-sensitive package.
With time running out, Benjamin must find a way to protect the curvy doctor while keeping his distance… and expose PharmGen to the world before the deadly virus is unleashed.
REVIEW: HARD TARGET (TARGET #2) BY MARQUITA VALENTINE
Hard Target by Marquita Valentine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Benjamin is just one of those guys that trouble finds no matter how hard he tries to escape it. He's not a bad person, he just makes questionable choices. I received an ARC of Hard Target in exchange for an honest review. Benjamin was introduced in Prime Target. Having managed to leave behind the violent world he was raised in, he has settled into a life of stability and wealth working for a top pharmaceutical company. He is living the dream until he Morgan Tanner and his house of cards starts to crumble all around him. Marquita Valentine has created a story where not everything is as it seems. Exposed secrets can get one killed and the danger is always close at hand. What impresses me about the Target series is the male characters do bad things but for the right reasons. The paradox is that when doing the right thing they still end up in the same situations.
