Chicago homicide detective Camille Martell will stop at nothing to track down “Angel,” a sexual predator who has already butchered two young victims—even after her off-the-books investigation leads to her suspension. But when her relentless attempts to contact Angel online puts her teenage neighbor in mortal danger, Camille’s worst fears are realized. Panicked and overwhelmed with guilt, Camille needs help—even if it comes from the one man she swore she’d do anything to forget.
After serving time for a trumped-up charge, private investigator Drago Nance doesn’t trust cops. Nothing will change that, not even the steamy weekend with Camille that burned itself into his memory. But with an innocent girl’s life at stake, Drago can’t ignore the need in Camille’s eyes, or the heated promise in her touch. He agrees to help—if she’s willing to play by his rules. He just never suspected that seducing his partner could be just as thrilling as chasing a madman.
The author pulled me right into the story, with such vivid images and feelings of terror, fear, and dread of a new capture of innocent victim.
The anxiety and frustration of Camille are palpable. She is running with emotions on top, only on fumes, trying to catch the cruel murderer. At first, her overly emotional behavior was a bit confusing to me, since she is the top detective, but soon the story started to unfold, her reasons came clear, and her actions and reactions more rational.
I loved how Drago was able to center her, how he understood her, and was able to take care of her, when needed. The connection, attraction, lust, and passion between them was clear, and had been fuming for years. The misconceptions between them, had made both of them to believe, that they were not suitable for each other, except sexually. When the truth finally came to light, it was a relief, to me as a reader. Because Drago had principles, values, and conventions, anyone should admire, not contempt him for.
I was completely hooked on the story, felt like I was right there with them on the hunt for Angel. The suspense is fierce and scary, with a couple scenes that truly freaked me out. The hunt for Angel was effortful and frustrating. The relationship between Camille and Drago is lustful, steamy, yet balancing at the same time. The efforts of the teams, both the police force and Drago's connections was seamless and tireless.
Pure edge-of-your-seat action with a sensuous romance
