From back cover:
NIGHT MOVES
The heat was intense, much too hot for sleeping. Staring into the dark ocean surf, Rachel couldn't see anything but she sensed that something was out there. And then he floated up on the shore, unconscious.
He was barely alive. Someone had shot him twice. Trusting her instincts, she did not call the police. Her sixth sense told her that she was his only hope. With him lying unconscious before her, Rachel had to decide his future, as well as his own. But someone wanted this man dead. Was she putting her own life in danger for a man she didn't even know?

A sequel of sorts to "Midnight Rainbow." Kell Sabin made an appearance in that book and is the main character here. Grant and Jane from "Midnight Rainbow" make an appearance here as well

Sabin was tall, dark and sexy, though I always thought of him as 'Sabin' and not 'Kell' and I found myself purchasing other books just because they might hold a Sabin cameo.
As for the female lead, we got the obligatory 'former marriage ended in tragedy' bit, but very little else about her past or porfession. I couldn't see anything incredibly sexy about her, but hey...central to the plot.

One complaint that I have about Linda Howard's books is a common thread I see spanning many if not most of them. As she gets older, so do her heros and heroines. Suddenly they are in their forties and carting loads of pre-schoolers around. I understand that some small part of all authors are reflected in their books, but she's making this unrealistic (As well as selfish. When their kids are in college, they'll be pushing sixty. I don't care how 'fit' they are). I have never found this trend attractive, and I find am disquieted when it's revealed that the hero/heroine is like, thirty-seven at the time the book is written.

Besides that, however, the book was very hot and I loved the Grant Sullivan bit at the end.

Pretty good thriller/romance from a popular author.
