This was my first interracial romance novel. I didn't know such things existed. As my first interracial novel it was quite enjoyable. Now that I've reread it has fallen a little in my estimation. How can a woman who has run from a criminal seeking revenge endure so much yet be so nieve and weak when it comes to men. Regardless, I'll recommend it because it's a quick escape from reality.
The premise was okay. The pacing was off and it just didn't seem like it was going anywhere.
LOTS of missed opportunities when it came to editing. Typos galore.
Leslie Collins, an African-American bank officer, is forced to flee her home town to escape a man who attempted to rape her. After three years in jail, he is seeking revenge.
Leslie takes a job as a cook on the Saber Estate for Jordan Saber, a successful, white University professor. Even though there is a powerful attraction, Leslie fights the relationship. IN the midst of the danger facing Leslie, Jordan becomes overzealous in protecting her, forcing her to leave the estate and putting her in each reach of the stalker.
Can Jordan break through and saver her in time?
Excellent, Award winning book!
