Read an excerpt

Bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann knows how to push the limits of romantic suspense to new, breathtaking heights. Potent, gripping and explosive, Out of Control is a roller-coaster ride of a novel–as a single act of loyalty becomes a desperate struggle for survival…

Savannah von Hopf has no choice. To save her uncle’s life, she goes in search of Ken “WildCard” Karmody, a guy she barely knew in college who is now a military operative. She must convince him to help her deliver a cache of ransom money into the hands of terrorists halfway around the world. What she doesn’t expect is to end up in WildCard’s arms before she can even ask for help.

WildCard has always had a soft spot for beautiful women. But when he discovers Savannah’s hidden agenda, he is determined to end the affair. But Savannah is bound for Indonesia with or without his protection, and he can’t just walk away. When her plan goes horribly wrong, they are trapped in the forsaken jungle of a hostile country, stalked by a lethal enemy. As time is running out, they scramble to escape, risking both their lives to stop a nightmare from spinning even further out of control…


Publisher’s Weekly says: “Blending several humor-garnished love stories into the best sort of cocktail, veteran romance author Brockmann serves up a heady brew that readers are certain to savor… A consummate and prolific storyteller, Brockmann consistently turns out first-rate novels that tug on the reader’s heartstrings, and her latest is no exception.”

All About Romance gives OUT OF CONTROL a Desert Isle Keeper review and says: “I was a little worried after finishing Over the Edge. How could any book follow it up? Then I got my hands on Out of Control and realized that it not only lived up to my expectations, but exceed them. Once again Suzanne Brockmann has proven her talent for interweaving story lines, setting a lightning pace, and creating captivating characters.”
