Golden Threads is a quick read, and also a good read. The book turns out to be a page turner, you care about the characters - you want to know what happens to them. It is nothing like the books she writes currently, such as the other "new" book out "Sleeping with Fear." I think some Hooper fans would be disappointed in that. She explains on the DJ flap that it is a earlier novel that is more romance than mystery and suspense, but it definitely has a mystery in it. I thought it is worthy of reading. The only thing I found somewhat annoying was the overwrought way the two characters reacted to one another. Cat lovers should know that a super smart siamese plays a big part in this novel!
Imprisoned by fate-and the FBI-in a strange town with a new identity, Lara Mason longed to escape the painful memory of her father's murder. Playing Rapunzel in a local production would distract her, she hoped-until broodingly sensual Devon Shane was chose as her prince in the play...and cast himself as her bodyguard when shadows from her past threatened her. Captured by his sapphire gaze and a voice that compelled her surrender, Lara had trusted no one with her secret, but Devon drove her wild with sensation, demanded and took what belonged to him. Furious at being a pawn in his dangerous game, Lara told Devon she wouldn't run anymore--but could he keep her safe? Desperate to end the limbo that denied them a future, Lara was willing to gamble with her life ... but not his love. Devon had scaled her tower and won her, but now he had to set her free. Could she show him that taming his savage heart was the only happy ending she wanted?
Very good story. I loved the male lead, Devon. Read it in one day.
