SMITH, DEBRA WHITE
Tired of waiting for the right man to start a family, Tanya flew halfway around the world alone to adopt her son. On the return flight, she was seated next to a man named Maurice and endured hours of his comments and innuendos. Once they landed in Dallas, he started stalking her -- sending gifts, leaving voice mails, following her everywhere...finally forcing her to move,
Maurice hires private detective Sonny Mansfield, whose intentions were good when he agreed to help a client locate his missing "ex-wife" and kidnapped "son". But watching Tanya with her little boy, Sonny realizes he's made a terrible mistake by inadvertently leading danger back into her life.
Joining forces to defeat the madman, Sonny and Tanya can't deny the attraction they feel for each other. But their love will be short-lived if they aren't able to escape Maurice for good.
ENJOYABLE MYSTERY/SUSPENSE. THE TAUT PLOT MAKES THIS A PAGE-TURNER BUT THE DEVELOPING ROMANCE BETWEEN SONNY AND TANYA MAKES YOU SAVOR EVERY LAST WORD. THE SECOND IN A SERIES BUT IT WASN'T CONFUSING TO READ FIRST. KUDOS TO DEBRA FOR MAKING IT READ LIKE A STAND ALONE. I'LL DEFINITELY BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR TEXAS HEAT (THE FIRST OF THE SERIES WHICH IS OUT NOW) AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE THIRD BOOK WHEN IT IS PUBLISHED.
