Review: Dark Tide Rising by Kristin Miller

Dark Tide Rising by Kristin Miller

Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Heat Rating: 2



Depend on a man? Never!

Emily McAllister wants nothing more than to control her own life, but when a vision of her best friend’s murder grips her, Emily’s forced to put her trust in the straight-laced sergeant responsible for closing the case. The police believe the drowning was accidental but Emily, haunted by dreams of the killer, knows better.

Police sergeant Mark Thurgood is interested in facts, not premonitions, and he’s tried to steer clear of the ocean since rescuing two lives from its icy clutches. But when danger threatens the free-spirited Emily, he’s determined to stay by her side.

It isn’t until Emily finally begins to trust Mark that she realizes her reaction to him may be more than physical attraction. But when a detail emerges from the murky veil of her dreams she questions if the man she’s fallen for is actually a killer.

Lena's Review

Emily McAllister just experienced her cousin’s death. She has no idea how it happened but she felt the breath leave her. Now she is determined to find her killer no matter what happens to her. The only thing standing in her way is the arrogant, stubborn yet sexy officer handling the case. She has no idea why Mark Thurgood hates her or the ocean. Yet every time she tries to find her cousin’s killer he is in the way. One minute he thinks she is some psycho and the next he can’t get enough of his kisses. The killer is still out there and the harder she tries to find him or her more of a target she is. Emily has no idea why she is having these visions but knows that her cousin’s death was no accident. Can Emily find the killer before they find her? Will she ever know real love with a man like Mark?

Police Officer Mark Thurgood is man who gets his work done yet is afraid of many things. His biggest fear is the ocean and it torments him each day. Years ago he lost his best friend to the ocean and since them he has felt guilty. Knowing that Emily’s cousin died by the tides he wants nothing that to find the killer. Emily though is one woman who enchants him and fears him. Her visions about the murder are accurate and it scares him how much she knows. Emily knows information that no officer knows except him. Mark knows everyone in the force thinks he’s lost it since his best friend’s death. This is his last chance to prove he still has it in him but afraid that he will lose Kat. Can he find the killer before it is too late?

Mark and Emily two people who are searching for the same thing but find attraction is hard to deny. The death of her cousin scares her for the killer is still out there. Now Mark is a man who knows his time at the force is ending. This homicide is his last chance to prove he still has it in him. Yet what made the book suspenseful was knowing the killer was watching their every move. Kristin Miller has a way of bringing the reader into the action right at the beginning never slowing the story down. The attraction between them is strong and the killer on their every move makes them hotter than ever. Loved it and can’t wait for more.
