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.

©1998 Linda Howard; (P)2009 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

    "Loved this book"

    I really enjoyed this book. I usually like Phil Gigante as Narrator. He hit it right on in this book. I have not read many of Linda Howard but plan on reading more. I will probably listen to this book many times.

    "Cheesy writing"

    People do not talk this way, was super cheesy. Story was really good, but got ruined with the cheesy talk. Too many hun's by a described strong, masculine man.

    "Male narrator"

    I guess since there is a male romantic interest they decided to go with a male narrator on this story. But it was hard to listen to him at times. There is scene where the female lead is talking about her attempted rape and hearing a male voice throws the scene off. He also uses a high pitch voice for the lead actor and it gets annoying to hear.

    "Good!"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is on the list of 100 best romances. I read it a few years ago and found out why it is at the top of the list. When it came out on Audible, I jumped on it. the audible version is a good as reading the book - maybe better. The H/h are hot together from the first time they meet. She sees visions of murders as they occur. At first the H (a detective) does not believe she is a physic and thinks she is the killer. Then he discovers that she really is physic, He protects her and tries to find the serial killer. He does one amazingly stupid thing that is very hard to forgive. The ending is great. Give it a try. I don't think you will be disappointed.

    "3 ½ stars. Overall a pretty good story,"

    but not as good as other books by this author.

    I am not a fan of stories like this – using a partial psychic visions to create mystery. Marlie has psychic visions being in the head of the killer. These are partial visions and don’t give enough information to help the police. After each vision Marlie is weak and tired and must sleep for a long time – which gives the author more to talk about.

    I was annoyed several times when Marlie was in the middle of a psychic vision. Dane talks to her trying to bring her out of it. My thinking was let her finish. She needs more time in the vision to get more info.

    The relationship development between Marlie and Dane was pretty good.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Phil Gigante was very good with male voices. But he was awful doing females. He made Marlie sound wimpy, whiny, and effeminate. For example: “Then by all means if it will help her, throw me to the wolves she said, her voice flat.” The narrator read this in a whiny voice - not a flat tone. The narrator made other females sound like effeminate gay guys. Don’t get me wrong, I like listening to an effeminate gay guy. But I don’t want heterosexual female characters sounding that way - with elongated vowels or whatever it is. I was annoyed. The narrator is totally wrong reading women that way. He needs to learn how to do females.

    On the positive, the narrator’s breathing noises were removed - yay.

    Narrative mode: 3rd person.
    Genre: romantic suspense.

    "Dream Man"

    A long time favorite! I always think she forgives him too easily, but this is a romance, so I suppose she must, lol. The narrator was wonderful! He did character voices & used just the right amount of emotion & inflection while reading the intense parts. I'd give him 10 stars if I could. Thumbs up all the way around.

    "One of my favorites!"

    I had previously read and enjoyed this book, but found the audiobook to bring out nuances I missed in the reading. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing the characters alive and creating the air of suspense the book needed. Highly recommended!

    "Wow!"

    This is the first book by this author for me, chosen partly due to the narrator, and it is fantastic. Very intriguing plot with plenty of suspense, at times quite chilling! Very rich characters. Highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.
