"I'm not afraid anymore."
For years, court reporter Mattie Nolan kept her child a secret. The man she once loved chose his dangerous job—undercover cop—over her. But now, Sacramento detective Dom Jeffries is all that's standing between her and the drug kingpin set on revenge against everyone who put him away. Including Mattie.
Though teetering on the edge of burnout, Dom goes undercover as a bailiff in Mattie's courtroom. While he pretends not to remember her, thoughts of her touch, her smell and the smile that had been his alone keep resurfacing. Then he uncovers the secret she's protecting. To save the daughter he's never known and the woman he's never forgotten, Dom's ready to sacrifice not just his job, but his life…
Virna DePaul writes romantic suspense with heat and that’s just the way I like it. Most romance suspense writers gets so tied up into the mystery suspense they forget about the romance but Virna keeps up with it all and writes one hot book that will have you holding on to your seat, all the long trying to figure out who’s doing it.
I enjoyed Alpha Dom, he is one tuff cop that will stop at nothing to get back what he lost years ago. Mattie while tuff she is skeptical about Dom and it takes her awhile to let him in. I did enjoy Mattie but I wish she would have let Dom in a bit sooner, then again I guess we cant have it all LOL. Tony is Mattie’s brother, he has some issues and I hope Virna will write a story about him. I would love to see what she could do with putting him and Linda together.
This is quick read with all the elements that makes a good suspense. I recommend this book to anyone who likes some heat with their suspense.
