Shades of Desire Publisher's Summary

Natalie Jones is the lucky survivor of an elusive killer who preys on young women and then disappears from view. And since her harrowing ordeal, the once gutsy photojournalist has remained isolated in her home, paralyzed by fear and her failing vision.

Special Agent Liam "Mac" McKenzie has scars of his own. But despite his efforts to ignore the attraction that simmers between him and Natalie, he needs her help to catch a predator.

Soon, they will forge a tentative alliance - charged with desire. Through a soft-focus lens, Natalie dares to envision a future with Mac beyond the investigation … never guessing that the clues hidden within her photographs are drawing them into an explosive confrontation with a madman.
