About the Author

Kendra Elliot began writing fiction when she participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in 2005. Though she considered herself a romance writer at the time, she found that her heroines kept tripping over dead bodies, and it was then she realized her niche was in romantic suspense. In 2010, her novel Stronger Than Bone (later published as Hidden) was a finalist in the Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart Awards contest, which led her to her agent and ultimately the publication of her debut novel. In addition to the Golden Heart, she was a Romantic Times Top Pick in March 2013. A lifelong native of the Pacific Northwest, Elliot makes her home with her husband, three children, two cats, and a Pomeranian.

Known is book 5 in Kendra Elliot's romantic suspense series Bone Secrets. It can be read as a stand alone but Buried (book 3) provides the background to Chris' past so I'd probably read that one first. Chris is the hero of this installment. He comes across Gianna and her teenage daughter whose vacation cabin burnt down. Stranded in a snowstorm in Chris' isolated mountain cabin, they soon realize that the fire was no accident. But who would want to harm a mother and her daughter? As with all the other books in the series, this was a great mix of suspenseful mystery and romance though a bit heavier on the action and suspense this time. There is never a dull moment in these books and the author has a great talent for making you feel the characters' emotions. Some of the revelations and developments approached the over-the-top unbelievable territory. But I love all the characters, old and new, so it was still a very enjoyable read. A great series for fans of romantic suspense. I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Known features a hero and heroine who both have very complicated pasts, thrown together in a high-octane chase to discover who is after Gianna and her daughter and why before it's too late. I was honestly surprised by some of the twists here--one in particular I never saw coming!--this was a difficult book to put down once I started reading it. Known was the first full-length novel I've read by Ms. Elliot, and it was just as enjoyable as her romantic suspense novellas. Chris Jacobs is uniquely qualified to help Gianna and Violet Trask--his childhood trauma has made him suspicious of human nature in general and he's always meticulously prepared for whatever life is going to throw at him. He immediately takes the two under his wing, and it isn't long before he'll do whatever he can to keep them safe. The romance between Gianna and Chris somehow feels like it develops slowly and naturally, even though the events of the entire story happen over a relatively short period of time. I guess it's because that part of the story is in direct contrast to the drama of the suspense portion, which moves at a quick pace. Ms. Elliott does a good job of making their growing closeness feel natural even as the rest of the story races along. Though Known worked okay as a standalone, had I realized the hero's complicated backstory I would have read Buried first. Ms. Elliot does a good job of explaining the basics here, but there's still a few holes in Chris's story (nothing necessary to the plot of this one, but I want to know the details to satisfy my own curiosity about him). Michael and Jamie (Chris's siblings and the hero and heroine of Buried--see? I told you it was complicated) play a pretty significant role in this story; now I need to read theirs. I've already added Buried to my audio to library, so I'm good to go as soon as my schedule permits. :) Rating: 4 stars / B+ I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 5 Finally!!! We finally get Chris’ story. When we first met Chris in Buried (book #3 in the series, I would suggest reading Buried 1st) I knew that his story was going to be a very emotional one. As a child Chris lived through a hell that no one should have have to live through. But since his Michael and Jamie forced him into the real world Chris has had to learn to live again. If not for himself, but for his son and his family. But now Chris finds himself in another life or death battle. But this time it is not just his life that is in danger it is the beautiful stranger and her brave daughter. Gianna has her own demons that she has had to deal with over the years. But nothing could prepare her for the events that were about to happen when she choice to take a weekend trip into the Cascade mountains. This was an amazing story!! There were so many things that I was not expecting to happen. Ms. Elliot does a great job of bring us a romantic suspense story that not only makes us want to read fast and keep those pages turning. But also to show us that love even when it is totally unexpected can heal some of the deepest wounds that someone can have.
