Struggling for a new normal in the thirteen long months after her husband's murder, Elizabeth Baron Foster finds herself in danger. She never expected to be rescued, especially by the sexy and infamous U.S. senator. She's shocked to be so immediately attracted to the fearless, protective former Navy SEAL. But giving in to passion would mean letting go of the one man she loved her entire life.

With his power and money, billionaire John Prescott Cole often gets what he wants. And this time, what he wants is the feisty widow who sets him on fire. But someone has other plans, as Elizabeth and John are thrown into a world of politically-driven peril. With danger closing in, enemies multiplying, it's up to them to trust each other.

Can he rescue her not only from danger, but from being heartbroken and alone? And can Elizabeth overcome her guilt and open her heart to a new path in life?

Looking back through the books I've read, I don’t think I’ve ever actually tried romantic suspense. I’ve read a few romances with suspenseful elements, but they’re definitely not the same thing. The Kiss of Life, I’m pretty sure, was my first…and what a ride! Former Navy SEAL, current US Senator, billionaire, John Prescott Cole is a bucket of swoon! And he has to be because Elizabeth’s late husband, Will, in my opinion, was perfection. I’ve read so many books where the protagonist’s first true love is knocked down a few pegs from their pedestal to make room for the new hero/heroine. This is a pet peeve of mine. Why is that even necessary? The author does a fantastic job of making you fall for both men. You truly feel torn, just as Elizabeth does, just as you should. And even though John doesn’t need to compete with Will’s memory for Elizabeth’s sake, I think it's important he at least lives up to it for the reader. And he 100% succeeds. I bring this up because we first meet Will in the prologue, and as I was reading it, I was thinking, Good luck, John! Not only was Will swoony, Will and Elizabeth’s romance was swoony. That’s a lot to ask of a reader—to just get over it and accept someone new, but the author does, and it works. And speaking of the prologue... Wow! I was sucked in immediately. As a confirmed romance junkie, I figured I’d tolerate the suspense to get to the love story, but that is not what happened. I was all about the action, and it’s nonstop. Elizabeth is the damsel in distress without being a damsel at all, and John is the white knight who saves her. Another thing worth mentioning is the fantastic playlist and how it’s perfectly integrated throughout the story. I listened to it prior to reading and really enjoyed seeing the songs pop up. The Kiss of Life is an action-packed swoon-fest that celebrates love at first sight like no other. And kudos to Ms. Sharp. The amount of research that must have gone into this is extensive—or at least to this novice it feels that way. Definitely recommend!
