I'm not a regular reader of romance or paranormal novels and just happened to read "Colliding Forces" on a fluke. It's an enjoyable, interesting read: hot romance, intrigue, life-changing events, and characters you want to 'live happily ever after'.
The plot involves a political conspiracy theory which was a surprise. My only criticism is poor editing. Too many slips where a word made no sense where it was used, like what instead of which, which would be easily missed if using electronic spell-check.
A power house of a good book
Deborah Stark, known as D., a Philadelphia news anchor, meets sexy Marcus Bocelli at the wedding of Maggie and Julian in Shifting Love (2004), and after a night of hot sex, she never expects to see him again. To her great surprise, he turns up at the tiny house in New Jersey where she spent an anguished childhood, just as she has to make funeral arrangements for her mother. He becomes her friend, but D. remembers that Maggie has warned her away from Marcus. When D. finds out about an enormous conspiracy involving her TV station, the company that owns it, and high-ranking government officials, a conspiracy that may result in the deaths of innocent people, she also discovers that Marcus is leading a double life. O'Day-Flannery slowly and carefully builds the suspense, and a relationship, maintaining a deliberate pace that finally yields a happy ending. The paranormal element is miniscule, ceding importance to the conspiracy, which proves to be enticing. by Diana Tixier Herald
