A novel of peril and passion from number-one New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts.
The last thing NYPD Sergeant James "Slade" Sladerman needs is to babysit a spoiled heiress. But Jessica Winslow's antiques shop is suspected of being used by an international smuggling ring, and Slade is being sent undercover to investigate - and keep Jessica out of trouble.
The woman Slade meets isn't what he expected. And neither is the desire that springs up between them….

I've read more of Norah Roberts novels than I can count because even though they're formulaic, they are easy entertainment after reading something much weightier like a glass of water to cleanse the pallet between wines. This novel, however, was so bad I was shocked. The plot was so weak that she plugged in repetitive love scenes throughout, and they quickly became tiresome.
I loved the characters and the story line and I really enjoyed the narrator. I look forward to my next Nora Roberts book.
I really wanted to give this Jessica a kick in the pant's. I have little patience with someone who dives in when not needed. If this book had been real life. She would have ended up getting both of herself and the cop killed. Do I find her brave and heroic? No I find her hard headed and a know it all. Sorry Ms. Roberts I didn't particularly like this female lead. Like I usually do with your other female leads. Also sorry Mr. Podehl but your female voice was a little much. On the other hand your Male voices were very good. Think this would be better with you and a female narrator.
If you enjoy Nora Roberts you will not be let down with this audiobook,
I found this to be a fun quick read that kept my attention through doing laundry and housecleaning all day, I hope you enjoy this book as I did.
Yes, it has such a good story line and you can really relate to it.
I'm tore, but Slade would be it
Yes, it the changing of the tones in the voice. Not monotone
Just a little more excitement in the voice would be great.
