Overview

FBI Agent Jake Carlisle is in deep trouble. He's been shot and if he can't get help fast, two lives will be lost-his and that of the young witness whom he's sworn to protect. Desperate, on the run from both the police and the Russian Mafia, he kidnaps a nurse from a hospital parking lot.

ER nurse Samantha Edgars has been living in an emotional vacuum since the death of her daughter. Mentally and physically exhausted following a difficult shift, she's suddenly jolted from her stupor when she's bound and gagged, then tossed into the back of her car. Forced to tend a bleeding FBI agent and his injured witness, she's terrified. But Samantha quickly learns the rogue agent and orphaned boy need more than just her professional skills. Danger is bearing down on them, and she must learn to trust Jake-and her heart- if they're all going to survive.

Loved this book. It has well-developed characters along with a good mystery and just enough romance to keep it interesting. This is the first novel written by Suzanne Ferrell that I have read but it won't be the last. Don't hesitate to read this story. It is well written and will hold your interest until the end.

If you like romantic suspense you won't be disappointed. Ms Ferrell turns in another winner. You can't help but fall in love with the hero as he struggles to save Nicky's life. Jake does what he has to do despite being wounded himself. Ferrell's writing is vivid and she makes each scene come alive with telling details. I thought the heroine's inner thoughts were intriguing and fun when in the middle of being kidnapped, trussed up on the floor of her suburban, she's thinking she really should've vacuumed. That made me like her right away. Oh, she panicked at the appropriate time. But she felt so real to me in that moment when the trash made her feel like she should've cleaned.

## I definitely enjoyed reading this book. The heroine was amazingly strong, capable and loving. It took me a while to warm up to the hero, because of how he treated the heroine in the beginning. Also, the fact that he slept with young prostitutes was a turn off for me. But it is definitely still worth your time and money.

Nice mystery / romance with likeable characters. I would prefer less descriptive sex but otherwise really liked it. Note to author: In the epilogue, Sami would not be able to retrieve the prescriptions from her purse to show Jake if her purse was lost in tlhe car abandonded in the freezing water after the accident.

A dramatic mystery dealing with a nurse, an undercover FBI agent and a Russian child needing rescue from the Russian mafia

This was a great romantic suspense - heavy on the suspense. Jake was an FBI agent who had been undercover for 3 years. He had worked his way into the Russian mafia as an enforcer when his cover was blown. He ran, taking "Little Partner", 9-year-old Nicholai, with him. The boy had been tortured by the mafia and would kill him, which Jake couldn't allow. Jake kidnapped a nurse when she was leaving the hospital so that she could patch Nicky up. Samantha was terrified but stitched both Jake and Nicky's wounds, keeping them alive. This fast-paced book had me on the edge of my seat wondering if the gang that was after Nicky and Jake would catch them. It was even more exciting when they found out about Sami, endangering her life, too. Someone on the police department was in the Russian's pocket so Jake couldn't get help there. I liked how Sami was instrumental in finding a safe place to hide from the gang. She also got her brothers to help them. They were all in some form of police work, so they had skills and access to information the runaways needed. I gave this well-written book 4.5 stars, rounded to 5. I really enjoyed this story and its terrific characters. Jake was a handsome FBI agent who was a little rough-around-the-edges after living undercover for so long. He was used to living alone and not depending on anybody but himself. He was distant with everyone except Nicky, who he was kind and gentle with. Even though Sami was still grieving the loss of her young daughter, years earlier, she was a strong, competent woman who stayed calm throughout the chases and gun battles. I liked Sami but her skills were too good to be true so I found some of the things she did to be unbelievable. I loved Nicky. He wanted to learn everything he could about America and was a terrific kid. I really enjoyed this exciting book.

This one has it all! A suspenseful plot full of action, romance with just enough steamy action, and two remarkable and unforgettable children. The hero Jake and the heroine Sami are well drawn characters, each battling memories of devestating past losses, that color every current action and decision they make. When undercover FBI agent Jake kidnaps Sami from the parking lot of the hospital where she works as a nurse, he believes she can save him and his little witness 9 year old Nicky from the injuries they sustained from the Russian mafia group he was investigating. Little does he know, that with his actions, he has literally saved Sami and given her a reason to live. I thoroughly enjoyed this riveting story and recommend it to all fans of romantic suspense novels.

Great book. The chemistry between Jake and Sami is hot. The suspense keeps you on your toes, you never guess who it is until the end. If you like a good romantic suspense this is a great pick.

Suzanne Ferrell hits the ground running and never stops in Kidnapped. From the introduction of Jake Carlisle and his young injured witness to the very last page the pace is fast and furious. The characters work their way into your heart and you can’t stand not knowing what plot twist is coming in the next chapter. This is definitely they type of book that can cause a book hang over. Lone wolf, Jake Carlisle has baggage. His emotional scars from childhood as well as an important witness that can help him shut down a new branch of the Russian mafia. The witness is a precocious little nine year old boy. Guilt riddles our FBI hero as he deals with the results of the child being tortured which leads him to kidnap Samantha Edgars, an emergency room nurse. Fate was on Jake’s side when Samantha left her shift early. Little did he know, she had her very own set of emotional baggage.  Sami didn’t intend to go quietly into anything with her kidnapper. Being the baby in her family, her older brothers made sure she had some mad skills. Being an emergency room nurse gave her the ability to step out of herself and see things objectively, except when it came to Jake. The fates brought these two together. They need each other for so much more than sizzle, which they have in spades. This book has me ready to purchase the next in the series, even with the book hangover; I’m ready for more Edgars’ Family!
