Overview

Murder and mystery spark unexpected romance in this captivating new tale from the beloved New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell

On the surface Shaye Townsend has little in common with Tanner. He's a hard-edged big city cop come home to the historic Davis family ranch to settle his uncle's estate. She's working for an environmental conservancy that acquires and protects old ranches—and she wants to preserve the Davis homestead.

When the suspicious death of Tanner's uncle at his ranch throws the two opposites together, tempers flare and sparks fly. While they have trouble seeing eye to eye, Shaye and Tanner agree on one thing: They need to uncover the truth.

Combining their unique skills—Shaye's low-key approach and local connections and Tanner's experience as a homicide detective—the unlikely pair share long nights in the pursuit of justice. Before they know it, the friction they generate turns to heat, igniting a love neither ever expected to find.

They believe passion this intense cannot last. But when Shaye becomes a killer's target, Tanner realizes he'd give up anything to protect her—including his life.

Was a little disappointed in this book. It seemed like the sex scenes were on every other psge instead of developing the characters and plot. I so enjoyed other books by this author because of the research. When I finished the book I felt like I had learned a lot about a new subject, such as her books regarding the diamond trade, rubies, jade, amber, etc. The only thing I learned from this one was that the two maincharacters had an instant and extremely active sex life.

It's been awhile since I've read an Elizabeth Lowell book. This was a really great book. The book held my attention. I was trying to decide who killed Lorne at the start of the book. Just a great book to read.

When I read a book that has me setting aside those things I ought to be doing and reading instead, I have a good read and an excuse to feel naughty. Hate to finish because I want more.

As always, Elizabeth Lowell comes through with a book you just can't put down. She makes the reader feel as much a part of the story as the characters themselves. One of my favorite authors.
