The Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn by Liz Johnson & Aussie Giveaway

Myles Parsons is just another inmate in Kenzie Thorn's GED course…until his abduction plan succeeds. Terrified, Kenzie doesn't want to believe his explanation. That he's Myles Borden, FBI agent—placed under cover because someone wants her dead.

Now that Myles has got her out of harm's way, his plans start to fall apart. He attempts to take Kenzie to a safe house—but the stubborn woman won't go! He struggles to protect her even as she takes care of him. He tries to keep his distance…and finds himself falling in love.

My take:~

Liz Johnson dives in the deep end with an intriguing prisoner, a frightening kidnapping and a wild mountain lion in her debut novel, The Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn and scores a 9.0 from this judge!

Kenzie and Myles' attraction sparks from the first meeting, the story is engaging and the suspense proceeds at a brisk pace. While the premise is somewhat improbable, Liz held my attention throughout the entire story, kept me guessing and invested in Kenzie and Myle's relationship. The Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn is an admirable start to Liz's writing career and I am anticipating enjoying more of her books to come.

My favourite romantic couple at the moment is Cassie and Mark from A Lady of Secret Devotion, as it is the book I'm reading right now.

My favourite couple changes every time I start reading a new book!

Hey Rel,
Thanks so much for your review and kind words. I'm so glad that you enjoyed my book. :) I suppose I can't enter the contest or anything, since I'm not an Aussie, but just wanted to stop by and say thanks!

Lily and Gabe, from Lori Wick's book, Bamboo and Lace.

My favourite romantic couple? My brain is really hurting, and the first thing that sprang to mind was Laurie and Ryan from Erynn Mangum's 'Miss Match' series.

Maybe that's cos a good laugh would do me good, rather than resorting to bed LOL.

This is a hard question as it does change with different books.
I do really like Anne and Gilbert from Anne of Green Gables.
Marty and Clark davis from Janette Okes series

Like Ausjenny I would say Anne and Gilbert from Anne of Green Gables. I never tire of watching them together or reading their love story.
