Product Description

Product Description

A serial killer has one obsession . . .

Claire Lambert walked into a nightmare on a rainy night in Washington, D.C. Stumbling upon a killer in the midst of his latest bloody crime, she ran for her life -- but not before a head injury caused her to lose her memory, along with her purse and ID. Now a monster knows who Claire is . . . and where she lives.

Waking up in a hospital room the day after being attacked -- her mind stripped of all memory of what happened to her -- Claire can only listen with horror to the scenario Detective Sean Richter unfolds before her. A law officer fiercely dedicated to ending the wave of brutal killings that has struck the city, Sean knows that this brave and beautiful woman holds the key to stopping the murderer before he can strike again. Claire is the only victim who has seen the killer's face and lived -- which is why Sean needs her help and will risk everything to protect her . . .

And why a depraved, relentless animal is determined that Claire Lambert must die.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific debut. June 17 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Cannot wait for Ms. Lowell's next book. I had read a few not so flattering reviews but decided to make my own decision. So glad I did!! This book kept me interested til the end and I loved the chemistry between the characters. Hope the next book is about Aidan and Olivia. Keep up the great work!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book June 7 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a GREAT book, especially seeing as how it is Heather's first book. Great suspense, wonderful romance. I expected Heather's writing to be similar to her mom's (Elizabeth Lowell (a.k.a. Ann Maxwell), and was shocked at how different her writing is. You will not be disappointed. I can't wait for the next book. Thanks Heather for the wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a good book! March 27 2004

I read this while on holiday and could not put it down. The suspense was great, I liked the romance between Claire and Sean (the police detective). Would certainly buy Ms. Lowells next book, hopefully about Sean's partner. I do admit that the plot is somewhat cliche(dangerous serial murderer gets obsessed with heroine and tries to kill her), but that is not important as the key persons are interesting and the romance is hot. You really care about what happens to them. Sometimes suspense novels tend to focus on the action and less on the romance. That is in not the case here and I really recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It!!! Jan. 19 2004

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Claire sees the face of a murderer right after he has committed his crime. He chases her and she gets away but not without injury. She is unable to remember the murder or the murderer. Sean is the police detective who is in charge of Claire's case and tracking the serial killer who is pursuing Claire to rid himself of the only witness to ever see him. Sean and Claire are attracted to each other. Sean knows he can't get involved with a witness but he can't stay away from her either. This was a great first book from a new author! I enjoyed it will definately purchase Heather Lowell's next title when it comes out. I recommend this book to all lovers of romantic suspense!

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put this book down! Jan. 2 2004

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Thank goodness that I was on vacation when I started this book, because it is a page-turner! In the style of romance/thriller writer, Linda Howard, this is a steamy, action-filled plot. I anxiously await her second novel!

I don't see how anyone can NOT like this book. Oooh super [intercourse], a fine...detective, a strong independent woman, fighting their feelings for one another.
This book is great and buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT READ THIS BOOK! Dec 12 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I wouldn't deign to befoul my lofty mental ambience with Ms. Lowell's fetid gutter pap, but a valued colleague of mine did relay her educated thoughts on this "novel" to me. My colleague is highly artistic and cultured so do not doubt her opinion. She remarked that the affect that reading "When the Storm Breaks" by Heather Lowell has upon one's state is akin to finding out that the one week in 17 years that you forgot to buy your Sweepstakes ticket, you find out that your numbers won a jackpot in excess of $39,000,0000.00. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!

1.0 out of 5 stars Only because 0 stars is not an option. Dec 11 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoy crappy detective novels as much as the next gal, so it's not that my standards are too high. But this is hands-down the worst detective novel I have ever read. To say the plot is thin would be an understatement. A sassy, independent woman stumbles upon a murder scene, bumps her head and forgets what the killer looks like, falls in love with the lead detective on her case and scampers about town looking for the killer, with her sassy, independent friends in tow. Every couple of chapters, she has creepy sexual encounters with the detective.
If I wanted to read Harlequin novels, I would. I don't appreciate them sneaking their way into my house disguised as crime fiction. From the moment the lead characters meet, they act like horny teenagers who don't understand that a murderer running loose, bent on your destruction, is kind of a serious thing that warrants your full attention. The flowery sex scenes, full of "moist centers" and "the most intimate love a man can give a woman," are paint-by-numbers softcore. Somehow, without having any conversations that go beyond childish bickering and nauseating pillow talk, they fall madly in love within a few chapters. Maybe each instantly recognized a complete lack of depth in the other and thus decided that it was a perfect match. While this pairup would probably work in real life, it's not something I care to read 452 pages about.
Even when the detective does try to focus on his job, his choices are completely absurd. The setup they come up with, using the witness as bait, is so hackneyed it would be rejected as a Lifetime movie script. He rejects poring over hard data in favor of wacky schemes that no self-respecting cop would go for. Did I say Lifetime movie?
