Guard gather around her another person is killed–again the murder ripped from the pages of Rowan’s bookIn the company of a former Delta Force officer with secrets of his own Rowan faces an excruciating dilemma the only way to chase down the tormenting killer is by revisiting the darkness of her past–and by praying for some way out againAfter the prey is chosen the hunt is on and the kill is certainFrom the author's websiteEach book stands alone The story.

From that point on and was willing to forgive Brennan for the horrible middle I don t know if I will or not but I might be willing to pick The Rich One (Persephones Awakening, up her other books if they are like the end of this one While a very good mysterythriller I had a really hard time even liking Rowan through most of the story She s cold brash and off putting Nor could Inderstand why John was so drawn to her as she sure didn t give him a reason to be There were also too many situations that stretched the realm of believability a little too far especially near the end The premise of a serial killer recreating fictitious murders from suspensethriller novels was eerily gripping though which did keep me reading And even though the killer was revealed it was interesting to try and figure out how everything would ever be reconciled in that twisted situation Wow was my first impression of this book It has the kind of dark elements I like in a romantic suspense novel The villains are EVIL twisted killers I loved that The characters are believable and the tension in this story is so thick it would be hard to cut with a knife nless a sharp one It s Allison s debut novel and I had the chance to meet her when I was in the US at a conference She s definately a gifted writer and her chosen genre suits her She s not affraid to make her characters suffer and I like that too now wishy washy girlie girlie heroines and iritating overly macho heroes in this book Plot
