Publisher's Summary

Marlie Keen was trying to lead a quiet, ordinary life. She thought the knowing - the clairvoyance that allowed her to witness crimes as they happened - had been destroyed in the nightmare of her past. Then one night it returned with a vengeance, and she desperately needed to find someone to make it stop.

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.

    "should have listened to the first reviewer"

    This book is proof positive that a great narrator can't save a terrible story. This is a cross between a Harlequin Romance and a Mickey Spillane novel. Although I must admit Mr. Spillane writes better than this.

    "Loved it!"

    I just love Phil Gigante's voice! He brings so much to the characters in this book, including the females! I try to listen to everthing he narrates.

    "Hard to ruin a Linda Howard"

    This book would have received a 5 if it hadn't been for the narrator. Personally, I'm not sure a male is the best choice for narrating romances. They are almost always derived from the female perspective and should be read by a female. He would have been better if he had just read the book rather than trying to "be" a female voice.

    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.

    "Narrator UGH!!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Linda Howard? Why or why not?

    Yes, I've enjoyed other books she has written.


    What didn’t you like about Phil Gigante’s performance?

    I didn't like his performance. I did speed up the narration and that helped.


    Any additional comments?

    In my opinion its a less than average book. Save your credit/money.

    Story
    "Horribly horrid"

    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.

    "don't buy!"

    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.
