Sandra Brown does it again! Enticed me into 470 pages of carefully constructed characters dealing with a nicely nutso sociopathic villain. Characters were interesting and engaging, well defined and mysterious enough. A secret here and there that I couldn't quite guess. Yummy suspence and hot attraction.

A good book. It seemed that it took forever for the hero and heroine to get together. But the premise of the story and how it's played out is very good.

Dr. Rennie Newton's life turns upside down after serving as foreman on a jury during a murder trial. Evidence against the defendant, Ricky Lozada, is circumstantial and he is soon found not guilty. As Rennie gets back into her usual routine, she finds Lozada is sending her flowers and calling her at home. When a co-worker is murdered at the hospital, evidence points at Lozada. Wick Threadgill tried to get the goods on Lozada a couple of years ago when his brother was murdered. On leave from the Fort Worth Police Department, Wick is asked to keep an eye on Rennie who the police believe may be Lozada's girlfriend. Wick disagrees and thinks Rennie might be the next victim.

I've been working my way through Sandra Brown's backlist with mixed results. Many times I have a hard time liking the heroines in her books. I'm happy to say I liked this heroine. Rennie is living the quiet life, working as a surgeon and saving lives. She hasn't had a relationship in a long time and has her reasons for it. Rennie is terrified when she starts receiving messages from Lozada saying "I have a crush on you". The police have questioned her in her co-workers murder and seem to be looking at her as a possible suspect. She doesn't know who she can trust. Wick has his reasons for going after Lozada. He wants to protect Rennie but she wants nothing to do with him. I liked him and enjoyed the romance between him and Rennie.

This book has a good balance of romance and suspense. The villain is truly creepy. I had a hard time guessing what he was going to do next. My rating: 4 Stars.
