Audio version: 5 hrs and 54 mins


As the only person who can identify the most notorious hit man in the country, Kat Bridges is running for her life.

Murphy Dolan is in the Army Reserves, returning from his 2nd tour of duty, only to find a stranger hiding in his house. She’s scared spitless. He’s completely burned-out on violence. Neither of them has any trust left to give.

If the best of the FBI couldn’t protect her from the country’s most notorious assassin, does a burned-out small town cop have a prayer?




4 Stars


Kate witnessed a murder by highly wanted man, who even the FBI can’t protect her from. Sassy and cunning Kate goes into hiding in the town of Broslin.  She is the kindest of people. Even with the danger that breaths down her neck, she puts the need of other  above those of herself. Running for so long as worn this woman out, but trusting anyone is a danger. Loneliness does not suit Kate well. In walks Murphy. Changing everything all at once.


Murphy has seen and done to many thing at haunt him. Being a soldier does more to one’s being and body then one can understand. After being hurt in action Murphy comes home to his small town and a strange woman in his bed.  Being a cop and a military man, Murphy sees there is more to her story and being a man she does things to his body.


High five to Dana Marton!  Deathwatch is a great romantic suspense book!  I don’t think I have read a book where the balance between romance, comedy and suspense is perfect.   Kate and Murphy are great together and really make the book. Kate is hysterically funny!  For all the danger on her tail, that woman will make you laugh.  Murphy is protective and caring with just a touch of dominance which makes him almost perfect.  The romance and suspense will keep you moving through this fast-paced story.  I promise not only does the story deliver steamy romance, you will be laughing as well.


Talmadge Ragan does a great job of giving another voice to this book. The narration is flawless. You were easily able to distinguish the different characters voices. I also believe it intensifies the comic effect within this book.

I was given a complimentary Audiobook of this title for an honest review. Receiving a complimentary copy does not affect the outcome of my review.
