Detective Dane Hollister of the Orlando police department had never met anyone like Marlie. He had doubts about her clairvoyance, but there was no doubt how much he desired her. Her soft, sweet scent set his blood afire, and he wanted to wrap her in his arms and chase the sadness from her eyes. To Marlie, Dane was all heat and hard muscle, and he made her body come alive as it never had before. But not even she could foresee where their passion would lead: a hungry quest for the elusive, dreamy ecstasies of love...and a dangerous journey into the twisted mind of a madman who would threaten their happiness and their lives.

I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
No, I did not enjoy the narrator. The story could of been much better. It was a great idea, but not enough material to make it a book worth my time and money.
Yes, I've enjoyed other books she has written.
I didn't like his performance. I did speed up the narration and that helped.
In my opinion its a less than average book. Save your credit/money.
I LOVE Linda Howard's work. Dying to Please, Cover of Night, Open Season are my favorites so far, but this book is taking too long to get through. The narrator is okay, but Susan Erickson seems to have bonded with Linda Howard. I would have liked to have seen more involvement and depth to the characters, but this book is 11 years old, we all get better with time.
This is the worst book I have ever read or listened to. High school kids write better than this. The trite similes and metaphors would be laughable if they didn't make the reader wince, i.e. "He was as fractious as a stallion scenting a mare in season."
She even used the word "loins." I though that was exclusively used in Harlequin romances or Shakespearean theatre.
If I could give a book zero stars, I would. It used up 2 hours of my life I can never get back.
The story sounded really interetsting but boy was I wrong...this is nothing but soft porn for bored housewifes. Great narrator though. Don't waste your money on this one.
