Goodreads Synopsis ~ She thought her fiancé was the perfect man—until he turned out to be the perfect killer…Katherine Cole has been running from her ex for years now, and finally thinks she has lost him. She is beginning to relax in this new life, and then it all falls apart again. This time though, she's not going to run. Especially with hot detective Dane Black covering her.
Katherine Cole is running for her life, desperate to escape the Valentine Killer—so-called because he stabs his victims through the heart and leaves them holding a telltale single red rose. Still he tracks her to New Orleans and begins carving a bloody path to her door. But this time, Katherine refuses to run any farther. This time, she’ll do anything to stop the madman she once loved, even trust the sexy cop promising to keep her safe…
Detective Dane Black never lets his emotions interfere with his job, even as the Valentine Killer surfaces in New Orleans to stalk his prey. But when Dane agrees to protect the killer’s ex-fiancée, Katherine Cole, he can’t ignore the passion kindling between them. After a single unforgettable night binds them body and soul, Dane knows he won’t rest until Katherine is safe in his arms—and the Valentine Killer is dead.
Dark and intensely sexy, this romantic suspense novel from USA Today bestselling author Cynthia Eden is sure to leave readers breathless.
I wondered about Katherine's part in the plot more than once. I couldn't help thinking that maybe she was not completely innocent in the crimes. I loved Dane. He was fierce, determined and loyal, but is his trust in Katherine too premature?
Cynthia Eden takes us on a ride full of surprises and twists. If I wasn't yelling warnings at the characters, I was holding my breath to see what would happen next. We are led to believe we "know" a character, only to be surprised by some of their actions.
I enjoyed every minute of this book and would recommend to any thriller-loving, adrenaline junkie. I both listened to and read the ebook so these will be added to my 2013 Ebook Challenge and my 2013 Audiobook Challenge.
Nice job Cynthia Eden, a 5 star rating from me!
