Book Description

Oct. 1 2005
What's a girl to do? Sophisticated urbanite Julia Devaux loves her life. What's not to love? A fabulous job in publishing, wonderful friends, gorgeous apartment, the company of her beautiful though temperamental Siamese cat, Federico Fellini-she's got it made. And then Julia has the bad luck to witness a Mob murder and her life goes straight down the toilet. Under the Witness Security program, Julia is relocated to the boondocks, a hundred miles from the nearest bookstore and Estee Lauder outlet, where the only fast food is deer and the only entertainment is sex with a laconic local rancher. Luckily, talking isn't what Sam Cooper does best... Former SEAL Sam Cooper can't believe his luck when mystery woman Sally Anderson hits town. Simpson, Idaho, can't even offer a decent cup of coffee let alone gorgeous new grade school teachers. The instant Cooper sees Sally, he stakes her out as his own. Granted, he's not much good at talking, but he does his best to keep her happy. When he discovers her life is in danger, he'll stop at nothing to keep her safe and with him. He's not alone. The whole town of Simpson wants to keep her. Publisher's Note: This is a rewritten and expanded version of a story previously published elsewhere under the title Pursued.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Undercover Dec 31 2005
By Jean Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
[Note: This review was written about the digital edition of this book.]

Having had the misfortune of witnessing a gangland hit, Julia Devaux, sophisticated book editor from Boston, has been put under the Witness Protection Program. She is currently living in the small Idaho town of Simpson, under the name Sally Anderson, and is working as a 2nd grade teacher. Needless to say, she is unhappy with the situation, but since a price of $1 million has been placed on her head, she is stuck in this out of the way place.

Sam Cooper is a rancher who breeds high-quality horses on his family spread. The Cooper Ranch is legendary in the area as being inhospitable to females - several of Cooper's female ancestors ran away from their husbands, his mother died when he was three, and his own wife divorced him two years before. But Cooper is floored by Sally Anderson, and immediately begins to court her in his taciturn fashion. Although Sally knows that their romance has no future, she is helpless to prevent falling for this silent man.

Wow! What a great read! Lisa Marie Rice really knows how to write erotic suspense! I was on the edge of my chair the entire time I was reading this novel. Although this story is not part of the Midnight trilogy (Midnight Man, Midnight Run, Midnight Angel), it is easily as sexy and emotionally involving as any of Rice's published work.

Rice has a sophisticated writing style that balances several different storylines at once. This technique piles on the suspense because the reader is left to wonder who, where, when, and how throughout the story - Who is after Julia? Will the hitman find out where she is? When will the danger occur? How can Julia survive? At the same time, Rice develops her characters so fully that the reader becomes emotionally involved in their lives, which also serves to increase the "nail-biting" factor. The erotica and the suspense are balanced so that neither overshadows the other - in fact, the different aspects of the story are so well-balanced that they ratchet up the reader's uneasiness to an even greater level. On top of all that, this author writes the hottest sex scenes I've ever read!

I have only two recommendations for anyone reading this novel: 1) Be sure to start it when you have lots of time to finish, or you will fall asleep at work the next morning, and 2) Make sure you have plenty of ice water or a significant other nearby to put out the fire! -- Jean, Fallen Angel Reviews (courtesy of Fallen Angel Reviews)

5.0 out of 5 stars IF YOU LIKE RICE'S OTHER BOOKS, YOU'LL LOVE THIS ONE! Nov. 2 2005
By lovesbooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read all of Lisa Marie Rice's books, and this is one of my favorite. Like "Midnight Run" and "Midnight Man," "Woman on the Run" has an Alpha hero, a former very taciturn SEAL. After witnessing a mob murder, Julia is whisked away by the FBI protective services where she poses as a second grade teacher. Naturally, she meets Sam with whom she has instant attraction, although she cannot read him because he says little and has an impassive face.

Unlike the two "Midnight" books, this one has more of a plot with some minor secondary characters and fewer sexual scenes. The other two books had one sex scene after another, but this is more of a conventional romance. I did not anticipate the twist at the end, and I suspect you won't either. In summary, it is a very satisfying romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars May I go into the Witness Protection Program, Please, Please, Please? Feb. 15 2007
By Amazon thy name is credit card debt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Rice is a cut above most other writers and I won't be surprised if future books are published as hardbacks and make the NY Times best-sellers list. Yes, she's THAT good.

She has a way about her, to quote a Billy Joel song. Her heroine has witnessed a nasty, bloody murder and been uprooted from her city life to a backwater dot on the map in Idaho. There's no cell phone reception, so she has to rotate which pay phones she uses, since there are so few of them around and she doesn't want to draw attention.

Check out this prose: She wasn't so surprised at the failed businesses, but at those which managed to hold on. Simpson was a town that had died but the news hadn't reached the corpse yet.

See what I mean? Rice's books are a thing of beauty: sexy, edge-of-your-seat, uncontrived, believable characters and plot with a dash of humor. It's recommended you re-read the books after you first devour them. Like a luscious piece of cheesecake, if you gulp it down you really miss the full flavor of the treat. Once you've galloped your way through her books, then you can go back and take the time to enjoy the ride and savor her literary turn of phrase.

Her writing is a pleasure, and invariably her books feature a satisfying ending. Woman on the Run's conclusion is touching yet witty. When's the last time you finished a book, closed the cover, sighed in satisfaction, and then immediately started over at the beginning?

Coop is amazing: definitely the strong, silent type. Unlike some stories where one of the characters is stronger or more interesting than the other, both of these folks are well-drawn. Julia/Sally is a delight; a Witness Protection Program "victim" who refuses to remain one.

Their first scene together may crack you up, then have you wondering, "Hmmmmm, now who could play them in the movie?" It's only a matter of time, Miss Rice, so pick out that mansion with the swimming pool you've been dreaming about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love IT!!! Sept. 3 2007
By M. E. Newell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Julia Devaux is a woman on the run. After witnessing a mob hit Julia finds herself in the witness protection program playing the part of "Sally Anderson" second grade teacher in Simpson Idaho. Julia DOESN'T want to be there, but with a million price tag on her head, she doesn't have much choice either. Then Julia meet Sam "Coop" Cooper an ex-seal turned horse breeder Julia and Coop get close and when he learns the truth he will stop at nothing to protect the woman he has come to love.
"Woman on the Run" was the first book that I read from Lisa Marie Rice and won't be my last! Ms. Rice give great characters, great storyline which are more about the sex scenes and there a few of them. I will be reading Ms Rice in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense and romantic! Nov. 25 2008
By Liz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I absolutely love LMR's books. Her heroes are totally alpha and super sexy. The heroines aren't too weak but not too stubbornly combative and overly independent (trying to prove something to the world) throughout the story like some other frustrating books I've read.

I can't help but get sucked in to her stories and fall in love with the characters. For these heroes its all or nothing. When they fall in love its all the way and they will do anything for their woman. I loved that. I especially liked how Cooper's intense need and desire for Julia was such that he just couldn't control himself. He was so in to her and super protective yet gentle. Romantic love scenes too.

Good job, LMR. I'm a fan now!!
