A Reviewer's Choice romantic suspense from an eclectic award-winning author.
"SURVIVAL INSTINCT by Doranna Durgin is nonstop action from start to finish. Using a former con artist as the main character in a story is a novel idea. The characters are flawed, yet still likeable. Kudos to Durgin for an excellent book."
