Her life depends on his protection. His heart depends on her survival.
Sheriff Egan McCall hasn’t forgiven Jordan Gentry for her role in the death of his fiancée. But when Jordan is attacked, Egan comes to her rescue and discovers a serial killer is targeting recipients of his late fiancée’s organs. Then Egan’s protective instincts—and long-buried feelings—kick in. Wearing a badge means his priority is stopping a murderer and safeguarding a target. If only he could also ignore the sizzling attraction between them…

My Thoughts:

Egan McCall is ending his day a little frustrated.  Jordan Gentry’s day didn’t end much better.  They’re going to take you on a bumpy ride so make sure you buckle up.  This author certainly knows what’s going to grab her reader’s attention. 

There’s plenty of mystery, suspense, and action.  I’m putting in a warning here.  Don’t jump ahead and sneak a peek at the ending – even though you may be tempted.  You’ll just spoil the rest of the book for yourself.  This book certainly fits under the Harlequin Intrigue brand because this book is all about the intrigue.  Hearing the name Harlequin, you know it’s synonymous with romance. 

But the intrigue has to come first here.  There are lots of questions that keep coming up that need to be answered.  I know you want the romance but our author gives you something to look forward to as the story develops.  The mystery needs solving first before I want to see what’s going to happen personally between our main characters.  At one point, I had to wonder if Dirty Harry was going to pop out from somewhere.  He would be right at home – I could see a much younger Clint Eastwood being right in the thick of things. 

The author had everything progress naturally.  Nothing felt rushed or out of place.  The character’s emotions also seemed natural.  Forgiveness can take a while because you have to get past the pain first.  But in true Harlequin fashion we get our happy ending.  I love the thought of setting the mood as I read but with what Egan and Jordan had to deal with, I think enjoying their story from a comfortable chair is the best way to go.

Marie Rydzynski was born on March 28 in West Germany to Polish parents. She moved to America at the age of four. For an entire year, Marie and her family explored the eastern half of the country before finally settling in New York.

Marie swears she was born writing, "which must have made the delivery especially hard for my mother." From an early age, Marie's parents would find her watching television or tucked away in some private place, writing at a furious pace. "Initially, I began writing myself into my favourite shows. I was a detective on '77 Sunset Strip,' the missing Cartwright sibling they never talked about on 'Bonanza' and the 'Girl from U.N.C.L.E.' before there was a 'Girl from U.N.C.L.E.,' not to mention an active participant in the serialized stories of 'The Mickey Mouse Club.'" Marie began to write her first romance novel when she was 11 years old, although she claims that, at the time, she didn't even realize it was a romance! She scribbled off and on, while dreaming of a career as an actress.

Marie was only 14 when she first laid eyes on the man she would marry, truly her first love, Charles Ferrarella. During her days at Queens College, New York, acting started to lose its glamour as Marie spent more and more time writing. After receiving her English degree, specialising in Shakespearean comedy, Marie and her family moved to Southern California, where she still resides today.

After an interminable seven weeks apart, Charles decided he couldn't live without her and came out to California to marry his childhood sweetheart. Ever practical, Marie was married in a wash-and-wear wedding dress that she sewed herself, appliqués and all. "'Be prepared' has always been my motto,"the author jokes. This motto has been stretched considerably by her two children, Nikky and Jessi, "but basically, it still applies," she says.

In November of 1981, she sold her first novel for Harlequin. Marie, who now has written over 150 novels, has one goal: to entertain, to make people laugh and feel good. "That's what makes me happy," she confesses. "That, and a really good romantic evening with my husband." She's keeping her fingers crossed that her reader's enjoy reading her books as much as she enjoyed writing them.
