Dangerous Relations starts off with a bang when Shelby Adair arrives at her sister’s apartment for dinner only to find that she has been murdered. After much disagreement about who should take the sister’s baby, the father’s brother and the child’s nanny reluctantly agree to let Shelby take her home only to have someone shoot at her as she goes to her car.

A number of suspects are revealed as the story progresses, each with legitimate reasons to want custody of Shelby’s niece Chloe and to want Shelby out of the picture. Shelby doesn’t know who to trust but the real threat may come from an unexpected source. Ample plot twists and surprises, action, and danger keep the adrenaline pumping as Chloe’s uncle Ryan and Shelby work together to protect the innocent child.

As always, the author expertly blended a riveting suspense with a sweet romance and tied it all together with a journey of faith for the leading characters. I will continue to recommend all novels by Carol J. Post.

He’ll do anything to save his niece…

In this The Baby Protectors novel

When her sister’s murdered, navy man Ryan McConnell insists on protecting Shelby Adair and their niece—especially after someone tries to kidnap little Chloe. But can Shelby trust the child’s uncle? After all, she’s convinced his family’s behind the attacks. But the longer Ryan shields them, the more Shelby wonders if becoming a forever family is their only shot at survival.


From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special events decorating company, Carol’s resume reads like someone who doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up. But her one constant has always been her love for writing. She lives in Central Florida with her husband and enjoys sailing, hiking and camping. Her daughters and grandson live too far away for her liking, so she pours all that nurturing into caring for three fat cats and one spoiled dog
