What are readers saying?

“Alexandra Isobel breaks out with three well-written romantic suspense short stories. The stories are enjoyable prequels for future novels.” Selena Robins rated it 5stars.

  “Alexandra Isobel’s book Romantic Heart Beats is a group of short stories all with a military theme. Readers this book is what I like to call a sneak peak of what the author has in store. All these stories do end on a cliffhanger. These stories all whet the appetite leaving the reader wanting more. Hopefully, she doesn’t make readers wait too long.” CocoFierce review

Take FlightMercury Cardinal, the intense and dedicated captain of Chimera Team, has one mission tonight.  Get Daria Hill from the safety of her bed, through the rebels who just overtook the embassy, to the rendezvous helo on the other side of town.

Guarding  Daria has been Mercury’s long standing cover assignment when not on spec ops missions, protecting her become sacred the day she was kidnapped while he was in the field.

welcome-home-cardRusty Cundieff, a focused special operations soldier with Chimera Team, has only been home one day, and already he’s keeping Meghan Christopher’s ass out of trouble– literally as she dangles off a cliff.  The only thing between her and the river cavern below is the tenuous grasp he has on her wrist.

Meghan has always been off limits to Rusty.  She’s his best friend’s little sister and his mentor’s daughter.  Beyond protecting her from the ugly side of life, he’s always disciplined his body not to react to her, and to keep his thoughts leashed, until  . . .  tonight.


standing-guard-cardBenjamin ‘Draco’ Dracovich, Chimera team’s point man, cannot get over the death of his team mate Jack during a disastrous mission.   Jack was his best friend, and a married father with two little girls.  He should have survived the unexpected bomb blast.  Not him.

Honour drives Draco to keep his death bed promise to Jack; take care of Kate.  Guilt over wanting her keeps him awake every night.  He promised Jack he’d take care of her, not bed her.  Wanting Kate crossing the line.  Making love to her would betray his soldier’s pact with Jack.

Tonight, Draco is determined to find a way to release his inner demons, because holding back with Kate has torn him up inside.  She ignites his every basic instinct, and needs to learn exactly what she does to him.  Tonight Kate would be his . . . and his alone.

These are some of my favourite urban short stories on amazon.  They’re fun reads for the bus ride home, a long hot bath, or a day at the beach.


Herpregnant cover

Kindle LAP

“I’m pregnant.”

Thyssen Skalas, a Navy SEAL in his prime, responds to his childhood love, Charlotte’s announcement with a foolish question, “Is it mine?” which lands him thrown out on his ass.

Three years later, after an out of control downward spiral in the SEALs,  he hits rock bottom.  Discharged from the Navy he becomes a contract killer for the Greek mob before he washes back up on Charlotte’s doorstep with a vengeful target on his tail.

Charlotte Jones is stunned to find that the filthy vagabond lying sick with fever in her shed is Thyssen, the father of her toddler and the man who broke her heart three years ago.  Even more shocking is that he’s no longer a SEAL and involved with a mob family his father cut ties with years ago.   Oh and he also led an insane professional killer to her door.

Thank you, Thyssen Skalas.

When bullets start to fly and Charlotte and his son are in danger,  Thyssen forces his family into hiding so he can sort things out.  There he’ll have a chance to redeem himself to Charlotte, and hopefully have his one true love fall back in love with him all over again.


“Steamy, delicious, heart pounding action! A quick read but, what it lacks in length it definitely makes up for in girth!”  Amazon 5 star review.
