Kate MacKenna has worked extremely hard to make a success of her business that she had started purely by accident when she made candles to give away as gifts. Her friends convinced her that they were marketable and her company grew from there. Just when it seems that everything should be going great, inexplicable events start happening.

Dylan Buchanan is the brother of Kate's best friend, Jordan. He also happens to be a detective in Boston. Dylan was injured in the line of duty and is currently on leave from the department. Dylan's had a crush on Kate for many years. He's never acted on it though, until now.

Unbeknownst to Kate or her sisters, a wealthy relation whom they'd never met changed his will, leaving each a very wealthy woman , but which puts them at great risk from the various money hungry relatives who are desperate to get their hands on the fortune. In Kate's world, everything is going wonderfully, her company is expanding, her sister's are both happy and well adjusted. The only exception is her sister, Kiera's attempts at `sexing Kate up' which includes wearing a Wonderbra. Little did Kate know that uncomfortable contraption would save her life! She'd worn the Wonderbra to an art showing that was being put on by a friend of hers'. When it became too uncomfortable, Kate was forced to go outside to remove it because the bathrooms were out of order. An explosion occurred and Kate was knocked unconscious. Once she is released from the hospital, Kate learns that her mother had put all her assets up as collateral before her death, one of the assets was Kate's company. When Kate had returned to college, she made her mother a partner so that she'd be able to make deposits and sign checks.

As usual Julie Garwood has done an outstanding job! She continues to write wonderful stories where a person can soon find themselves lost in her world.
I knew once I started reading her lastest book, I wouldn't put it down until the end and as usual, after reading her books, I am left disappointed that I don't have another to go to immediately.
This book is a great read, if you love suspence and passion all mixed into one. You won't be disappointed.
Thumbs Up!!!

HASH(0x9d8dcd50) out of 5 stars Slow Burn sizzles. Sept. 19 2005
By Judy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Slow Burn by Julie Garwood is a compelling story of mystery and romance.

Kate MacKenna has had a near miss on her life when a bomb goes off at a charity event she is attending. She is drawn out of town when her friend Jordan has a medical crisis. While there she falls into the arms of Dylan Buchanan, Jordan's brother. This is a complication she thinks she doesn't need.

After another near miss with another explosion Dylan comes to town to get to the bottom of who wants to harm Kate.

Dylan a detective is on leave after being injured on the job. He tells himself that he is looking after Kate at his sisters request but he comes to realize its always been Kate for him.

Getting to the bottom of these accidents is further complicated when it comes to light that Kate has inherited a boatload of money.

Dylan and Kate's romance is loaded with wit, charm and oozing sex appeal. The I Love You scene still makes me smile. The intrigue in this story is intense and heart pounding.

Julie Garwood has written another exceptional story. Can't wait for the next tale.

HASH(0x9d82e0f0) out of 5 stars Oozes chemistry and surprises galore Feb. 15 2007
By Tracy Vest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Entrepreneur Kate McKenna has survived not one but two bombings, as well as a near fatal hit and run. She and her two sisters have just discovered that their mother, who died a year earlier, mortgaged Kate's business and soon they will lose their home, as well as Kate's livelihood if they cannot come up with a balloon payment. She travels to Boston to see her best friend and former college roommate, Jordan, who is undergoing surgery. While in Boston, Kate has a one night stand with Jordan's sexy brother, Dylan.

When Kate reveals to Jordan all the bad luck that has come her way, Jordan becomes concerned and asks that Dylan to travel to South Carolina to look after Kate. Dylan is still is upset with Kate for taking off without saying goodbye, but goes down there anyhow. While the two decide to keep it platonic, she is summoned to a Savannah, Georgia law office for the reading of her uncle's will. When it's discovered that Kate will inherit the bulk of the estate, there are a whole lot more suspects to sift through.

Garwood mixes humor with suspense and romance to come up with a knockout mystery about a woman who suddenly finds herself the victim of a mad bomber. Dylan and Kate ooze chemistry and Garwood gives them some great bantering dialogue. Dylan's way of telling her he loves her is priceless. I often guess who the baddie is, but this one had me baffled right up to the revelation.

HASH(0x9d5ca378) out of 5 stars Dylan Buchanan Finally Gets His Story!!! Oct. 18 2005
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Julie Garwood is an automatic buy for me and has been for years. When she first started penning romantic suspense I was afraid that her beautiful voice so apparent in her historical romances would be lost. Well, her voice has changed probably due to her change in genre but she still has managed to create vivid characters that are not only likeable but also entertaining.

Someone wants Kate MacKenna dead. So far they've tried to blow her up twice in two different but nasty explosions, and they've tried to run her down. The big question is why? She's not rich, (she has recently just found out that she and her sisters are in danger of loosing their house due to a bank loan their mother took out to cover her hospital expenses) not beautiful in her mind, and she lives a real simple life. Oh, she has friends and she has a burning crush on her best friends brother Dylan. This is a big problem as she can't love Dylan and the fact that this handsome police detective is willing to put his life on the line for her only complicates things. Specially as she does need a knight in shining armor to keep her safe.

Dylan has a thing for "Pickle" and his feelings for her are growing by leaps and bounds. When his sister Jordan asks him to fly down to keep her safe he does but he has no idea that Kate really is in trouble and that the person who wants her dead won't stop until she is. Will Dylan be able to keep her safe?

Dylan and Kate were wonderful protagonists! I've loved the Buchanan Family series from the get-go. This story is no exception. Although I miss the historical romances that this author used to write, her romantic suspense still entertains. Ms. Garwood is a wonderful addition to the romantic suspense genre.

HASH(0x9d6812a0) out of 5 stars Forgettable Sept. 8 2005
By SailorLawyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Based on her historical romances, Julie Garwood ranks among my favorite authors. Her contemporary works, however, have never quite delivered the thrill and enchantment of her historicals. For some reason, her contemporary characters never come to life, instead remaining distantly glued to the page. And while some of her contemporary stories have been entertaining despite this defect, Slow Burn is utterly forgettable. I finished reading it three days ago, and I had to stop just now and think hard to recall the storyline. The plot is unsurprising and her characters -- while not unappealing -- remain entirely two-dimensional. I don't mean to imply this book is bad. It's fine. It's just not up to the quality of the Julie Garwood I remember. Wait for the paperback.

HASH(0x9d5daa5c) out of 5 stars Slow Burn June 15 2008
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kate MacKenna can thank her wonder bra for her life being spared when a bomb went off at a party being thrown by Carl Bertolli. She had snuck into the shrubs to dispose of it when the blast went off. She wasn't injured badly, but the hits just kept coming when she was released from the hospital, and found out that her company was in jeopardy due to loans her deceased mother had put in motion. Not only her company was at risk, but also her own name due to the name recognition. The next hit came when her best friend Jordan Buchanan called, and asked her to come because she was having surgery.

Kate dropped everything to be with Jordan, and as it turned out, Jordan was going to be fine. No one in her family knew what was going on, so Kate was surprised when her brother Dylan showed up. He knew about Jordan's condition, and knew Kate needed him, so he gave her his shoulder. What should have been a friendly gesture soon turned to out of control passion. They were agreed that it was just for one night, but he didn't leave her thoughts even when she headed home. Kate hadn't been home more than a few minutes when someone tried to run her down at the airport. When she received a call from a contractor demanding to meet her at the warehouse she was considering renting, she was sitting out front when it exploded.

When Dylan showed up on Kate's doorstep, she was shocked. Dylan was on leave from the Boston police department after being shot, but he was concerned by all the near misses plaguing Kate. He contacted the local PD, and learned these were deemed deliberate attempts. He wouldn't admit to himself why, but he wasn't leaving until he found out who was threatening Kate. They didn't have to wait long to find out what was behind the attempts because Kate found out she had just inherited 80 million from her recently deceased uncle. When Kate is abducted, Dylan is rushing against time to rescue her.

This is my first book by this author, and I really enjoyed it. Dylan and Kate are priceless together, and the years of friendship/torment really added to their dynamics. Well-written characters, and an interesting suspenseful story made this a good read.
