A story about a Dr.and an ex-cop turned businessman. A cold blooded killer is definitely trying to kill them and they are trying to find out which one the killer is truly after. Regardless of the fact they cannot seem to be friends they must work together to solve this problem. Each is attracted to the other but unwilling to admit it.

Dr. Meg Corning has developed a new breakthrough in medical technology that will revolutionize genetic testing. Erik Falco, an ex-cop turned wealthy pharmaceutical company owner, wants to acquire the complete rights to said procedure. Meg chafes at the terms he offers and is doggedly trying to find a better deal - but can't deny the sizzling attraction between them. But more worrisome is an increasingly dangerous series of "accidents" that seem to be targeting Meg, for reasons unknown ...

This is an entertaining example of how to write well within a formula. The lead characters are believable and likeable (well, the hero is a bit of a jerk, but not overly arrogant, and his initial motivation is understandable, given his backstory), the suspense is indeed suspenseful (quite a slam bang ending, literally), and the romance just hot enough to raise your, um, temperature. On the slight minus side, the romance is shoehorned into the end a little too quickly, and there is one plot thread that's left hanging (unless there's a sequel I haven't heard about with the character who is part of that dangling plot thread).

But Andersen's writing style keeps the plot moving at a brisk pace, and the medical technology angle is convincing (that is part of Andersen's background, after all). I decided to read this to sample her writing style before delving into her longer "Nightkeepers" series, and based on enjoying this, I'm ready to give those a go.

Another good Jessica Andersen PB of intrigue and romance. I read it in one day as it was captivating with a scientific and ethical slant as well. This is my 3rd book read of this author and I'll continue with her stories.
