Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

First in Harlequin's new Mira imprint, this fastpaced yarn by award-winning Pozzessere (Game of Love) combines mystery with sizzling romance. When Miami police officer Danny Huntington is gunned down, the suspects include a cult leader, a crime boss and the husband of a murdered heiress-all involved in cases Danny had been working on. Danny's wife Spencer and his ex-partner and best friend David Delgado begin a search for Danny's killer that leads them from Miami to the mansions of Newport. Soon Spencer's life appears to be in danger and her grandfather, Sly, asks David to act as her bodyguard. Complicating matters is the fiery attraction between Spencer and David that started in high school only to be cooled by her parents' disapproval of David's Cuban heritage. Pozzesserre, who lives in Florida, adds some nice local detail and shows what it was like to grow up as a Cuban refugee in Florida. The romance, however is more satisfying then the mystery, as the murderer turns out to be incidental. Despite this, and the fact that it is sometimes difficult to keep the numerous relatives and suspects straight, Pozzesserre has delivered an enjoyable read. Major ad/promo.

Wow! I haven't read a Graham book in a long time and I thought I would try out one of her contemporaries and boy was I shocked! I had only read her historicals all these years. This was excellent! The characters were so real and complex, I loved them! Especially the male lead of David Delgado. Whew, does he burn up the pages!!!
~Spencer Huntington just lost her husband, a police detective, to a brutal murder and now she is faced with the possibilty that the crime wasn't random at all. She needs help and only the trusted help of her husband's best friend and her former lover and ex-cop David Delgado. But, can she do it? She has to. She has to swallow her pride and put the past aside and get to the bottom of this heinous act.
David is from the wrong side of the tracks, being a former Cuban refugee as a child and struggling through life with nothing until his best friend Danny Huntington saved him. Danny made his friends David's too and they both fell in love with the same girl, a petite blonde rich girl named Spencer Montgomery. Ten years later, David is faced with his friend's murder and his widow, the only woman David ever loved.
...
Can their long lost love hinder their efforts for the truth or spur them on to the end? A killer awaits...
Gritty and very well written. As I would expect from Ms. Graham. David is very real and deep. Spencer is no 'rich girl' to be put on a shelf. These two make a real 'slow burn' on the pages and you will wish for more! The only complaint is that the killer is a little farfetched, but all in all, the story make up for it by far! Definate hot romance to read on a hot summer night even though I read it in March, lol.

I love Heather Graham books, but this wasn't my favorite. It's good, but not quite a keeper. Read if you love trying to figure out who-done-it continuously. Too sad of a plot and head spinning with the suspicious actions of everyone around the main characters for me. I felt like I was being jerked around a little bit, led this way and that. Mainly, it just wasn't passionate enough and detailed enough for me in the romance part and that's why I read these books!

You'll scream in frustration June 21 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I certainly felt like doing so when the murderer was unveiled. I won't give anything away if for some reason you decide to read this book, but believe me the murderer is the one person who absolutely could not have committed the crime... at least not without more explanation from Pozzessere as to the logistics of the crime. But I went back and checked and double-checked and I'm positive that this was a case of this author's habitual sloppiness with details. Forget this book. It's not worth the frustration.

Didn't like it very much Sept. 18 2011
By Book lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was surprised about the 5 star ratings this book got. To each their own I guess. I didn't enjoy this book because I just did not like the heroine. She spends practically the entire book being rude to the hero, but she sleeps with him over and over again. And cries after each time. I was completely disgusted by her and wondered what the guy saw in her. She senses she is in danger but stupidly puts herself in bad situations over and over again. Frankly, this is not a character I can respect. He loves her inspite of everything, but I wished he didn't waste his love on this woman. I don't like this author much and this book was the last nail in the coffin.

Contempory romance at it's best Aug. 28 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
David and Spencer are not your average lovers. With a long history and wonderful future, there story goes from Miami to Newport. With a killer thrown in it makes for a wondeful mystery as well! The pereferal characters are wonderful and add much to a great story. Cuddle up with this one on a winters night and before you know it, it will be spring.
EXCELLENT BOOK Oct. 1 2014

I'm a big fan of Heather Graham's books. I think I've read most everything that she has written with all of them being excellent from the beginning til the end. When you start reading one of her books you don't want to put it down.
