When Detective Logan Riske goes undercover to find Pepper Yates, a potential link to his best friend's unsolved murder, he vows to gain her cooperation by any means necessary. But the elusive beauty is more suspicious—and in far more danger—than he expected. And the last thing Logan needs is to start caring for her .
Pepper has spent years dodging the corrupt club owner who will stop at nothing to keep her silenced. She can trust no one, not even the handsome new "construction worker" who's moved in next door. The heat between them is undeniable. But will surrendering to passion bring her the safety she so desires—or will her feelings for Logan draw them both into a killer's crosshairs?
WOWZERS! Are you guys in for one steamy, sexy ride with Run the Risk!! Lori Foster sure knows how to create sexy men who carry guns. Men who are protectors and who love with intensity.
Aside from having the things I’ve come to love in Lori’s books, the suspense, the sexiness, the great characters, Run the Risk also had a lot of humor. I found myself enjoying it even more because of that. While I did enjoy the undercover operation part of the book, it was almost the whole first half of the book, and I kind of wish it wouldn’t have lasted that long. I will admit that I found it odd that Sue’s characters, being a mousy, private person, would so easily jump into bed with a guy like Logan…but that was just another surprise Lori Foster had up her sleeve in this book. In other words, not everything is as it seems in Run the Risk, and I was glad of that. I loved getting to know the rest of the characters once everything was out in the open. One thing I really liked about this cast is that we don’t automatically know who exactly is a good guy or a bad guy.
Run the Risk is a great start to what I can tell will be a great series from Lori Foster. I am already looking forward to what happens next.

How do you see the romance community as a whole (your readers and fellow authors)? Where do you see it in 10 years? What’s the best part about it?
The romance community has the most wonderful women and men in the entire world! Unique, friendly, open and caring. We love talking books, of course. But it’s so much more than that. It’s a rapport, a connection to the storylines, how they relate and don’t relate to real life romances, situations and circumstances. Many times readers can find a small part of themselves in the stories. That often opens a dialogue about real-life issues, the trials we have, what we survive and what we celebrate. People are so diverse that every day I hear, see, learn something new from my readers.
The current “open to the public” networking can be worrisome. So many people put their hearts out there for all the world to see. Used to be we kept our lives private and only shared certain aspects of ourselves. Now we share everything and only choose certain aspects to keep private. That’s the only downside to an otherwise amazing connection. When people share too much, they leave themselves vulnerable in so many ways. Identity theft has become a #1 worry!
But I believe societal trends are cyclical. Before my end of time, I’m sure we’ll find people pulling back and rebelling against the “tell all” mode of social networking. In the meantime, it’s just fabulous to have a forum for chatting with readers. I feel like I know so many of them, even though we’ll never meet in person.
