Product Description

When soap opera star Abby Langford leaves Los Angeles for her Minnesota hometown, she’s hoping to give her nine-year-old daughter the peaceful childhood she never knew. But instead of tranquility, Abby finds an old knife hidden behind a wall of her new house. Then the nightmares start: a blood-soaked victim and a killer’s arm slicing through the air, again and again.

Abby wonders if she’s having the nervous breakdown the tabloids claim she already had, especially when sexy, skeptical police chief Josh Kincaid questions her story. When menacing hate mail arrives, Josh’s professional concern for Abby soon evolves into an intense attraction, and the feeling is mutual. But as Abby’s visions grow more graphic and gripping, so does her fear.

Somewhere in the shadows of Abby’s memory lies the key to a very present danger. But she’ll have to stay alive long enough to find it…

About the Author

When she was eight, Diana Miller decided she wanted to be Nancy Drew. But no matter how many garbage cans she dug through, conversations she “accidentally” overheard, and attics she searched, she never found a single cryptic letter, hidden staircase, or anything else even remotely mysterious. She worked as a lawyer, a soda jerk, a stay-at-home mom, a hospital admitting clerk, and a conference host before deciding that the best way to inject suspense into her otherwise satisfying life was by writing about it.

Diana is a five-time nominee for the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award and winner of a Golden Heart for Dangerous Affairs—a romantic suspense novel that shows not everyone in her home state is Minnesota Nice.She lives in the Twin Cities with her family.

5.0 out of 5 stars CAPTIVATING SUSPENSE WITH A ROMANTIC TWIST Oct. 11 2012
By Laurel-Rain Snow "Rain" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
When Abby Langford returns to her Minnesota hometown, fleeing LA and the soap opera role she has played so very well, she is looking for relief from a broken marriage and her ex-husband's numerous infidelities. She is also hoping to finally put the nightmare of her childhood behind her and retrieve and deal with the most horrific memories that stand between her and peace.

She and her nine-year-old daughter Maddie move into a house she has admired for years. She is drawn to it almost inexplicably.

Connecting with old friends is a wonderful start to her new life, but almost immediately, as she tries to write a mystery novel, strange happenings intrude upon the peace she sought. Why was a bloody knife in the walls of the new home? What do her strange and increasingly disturbing nightmares mean? Is she remembering something, or is she psychic? And why does a stalker's threats seemingly mesh with her dreams and other weird events that are occurring more and more frequently?

Chief of Police Josh Kincaid is the first responder when Abby discovers the knife; when other events are brought to his attention, he thinks she is making things up for publicity. What will have to happen before he changes his mind?

An exciting journey through various twists and turns kept me reading Dangerous Affairs, and the wonderfully fleshed out characters added just that extra something to make me eager to read until all the pieces fell into place. I was happy that I didn't figure it all out too quickly; by the time I began to suspect the one character who seemed the least likely perpetrator, I was almost at the end. And then there were more surprises. Five stars, and recommended for anyone who enjoys a romantic suspense novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Soap star returns to hometown roots, but her biggest fan wants her gone Oct. 30 2012
By Tina Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
"Dangerous Affairs" by Diana Miller is a romantic suspense about a soap star who returns to her Minnesota hometown after quitting her career in daytime drama. She and her daughter move into an old house she fantasized about during your unhappy childhood. Struggling to write a book, raise a child, and cope with her philandering ex, Abby doesn't know what to think about Josh, the handsome cop who thinks she's a media hungry opportunist. Someone does not want her back in town, in that house, and will stop at nothing to get her out.

Overall, this was a nice read. I kept coming back to see to check in on what the characters were doing. The pacing was good, the main characters likable, and the tension kept me eager to read more. Heather was a bit of a sterotypical bimbo. The romantic scenes could have used a little work; they didn't feel realistic, and the first big love scene between the main characters had a ridiculous conversation going on with the 'action'. This sentence, for example, would give a reader a glimpse at what to expect: "He was rock hard and so hot and damp she was surprised not to see steam."

I would like to read more of the author's work. One of the best things about his novel was that I didn't figure out the Whodunit part, and the suspense and mystery elements were well played.

What a wonderful debut novel by Diana Miller. Dangerous Affairs delivers-a page turner with well developed characters and an exciting and suspenseful plot. I love her attention to details. The sexual attraction between Abby and Josh is out of this world. What a treat you will be in for. I look forward to more Diana Miller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot Romance and a Stalker Oct. 20 2012
By K. M. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
What a great romance and set in my own home state of Minnesota, too! Abby comes home to Minnesota when she divorces her cheating husband after one too many affairs. She wants her daughter Maddie to have the wonderful childhood that she did not. Abby's parents were both drunks and her father threw in some physical abuse too. Enough that Abby learned to block out all the bad memories until therapy after her divorce started unblocking them.

Luckily, Abby was informally adopted by her best friend Laura's parents Bill and Mary. They are all still in her hometown to provide love and support. But Abby also seems to have attracted a stalker with her return home. It seems someone believes that the cheating adulteress she portrayed on a popular soap opera was the real Abby. Such a belief was aided by Abby's not defending herself when the press painted her as the one who had affairs that ended her marriage. Even the local police chief Josh has trouble separating the actress from the reality. Of course, Josh has the slight excuse of being in the process of getting over his own divorce and his own cheating wife.

At first, Josh is certain that Abby is manufacturing the stalker for publicity but it doesn't take long for him to see Abby as she really is. He begins investigating the stalker episodes and investigating the steadily more realistic dreams that Abby is having about a murder. Of course, things are even more complicated by a reappearance of the cheating husband and Josh's former young girlfriend who doesn't want to let him go.

This was a good mystery too. The identity of the stalker and his motives came as a complete surprise to me.

I really enjoyed this story and will be looking for more by this author.
