DESIGNATED TARGET On her way to visit a little girl she recently helped save, paramedic Darcie Stephens is attacked by a stranger dead-set on killing her. She escapes unscathed when detective Noah Lockhart comes to her rescue, but an officer finds a hit list dropped by the assailant—and Darcie's name is next. Now with an assassin constantly on their heels, Darcie and Noah must uncover why somebody wants her dead. Noah fights hard to protect Darcie, but she's determined to keep the cop at arm's length. After all she's lost, she's afraid to love again, especially a handsome lawman with a guarded heart. And a murderer doesn't plan to let Darcie live long enough for any second chances.
My thoughts: EMERGENCY RESPONSE is a fast read. Darcie is a EMT/paramedic and is checking on a family with a handicapped little girl when suddenly, someone is trying to choke her to death. The first page -- the action starts. And doesn't stop. The thing that stands out is that the "bad guys" are bad shots and cannot hit the broad side of a barn. Lucky for Darcie and Noah! But the hits never stop coming, Darcie's locations are compromised and Noah won't leave her side unless she has someone with her that he trusts. Car bombs. Attempted strangulation. Shootings. And murders that seem to be related to the case. Are they? I read this through in one sitting and couldn't wait to see what happened next. If you like romantic suspense, Susan Sleeman is on of the best Love Inspired Suspense authors out there. 5 stars.
