When Karen Keppler is appointed Captain of the Tyler Police Department over assumed shoo-in Brick Bauer, it's safe to conjecture that sparks are about to fly. Neither were prepared for just how electric and dangerous those sparks would be. But obvious power struggles, along with Karen's enduring need to prove herself in an historically male job, conspire to keep them apart. Both need to make changes in attitude and lifestyle in order to give in to their passion for each other.

I don't expect much from a romance novel but this was awful. The hero is a chauvinistic a**hole and the heroine need psychiatric help. I didn't like either of them and couldn't care less if they got together or not. However it was part of an 8 book series that has a murder mystery running throughout (the books are written by different people so they don't all suck) so I had to finish it. Will not read this author again.

This is the 5th of 12 in the series. It has the most detail, so far, of the mystery, which is what drug me into these romances. As usual, the couple hate each other right off the bat, but can't keep their hands to themselves. Long story short, it's hard to keep up with the changing romantic details, but there's FINALLY some meat to the mystery.

I thought this story had horrid main characters, Brick was OK once he got past his wrong opinion of women cops but Karen was a nightmare!

This was the most unromantic romance I have ever read and if it wasn't for the continuing mystery in the series I wouldn't have bothered reading it all the way through.

Horrible writing, and even more horrible choice os cheesey words for the love scenes, but since i am stuck on the idea of a series surrounding a community, I must keep reading, hopefully the rest of the authors won't be so predictable and cliched

I really liked the hero of this story (Brick),but the woman they brought in and gave his job to,no so much. Apparently he found something to love about her though. I would have liked this book a lot more without her in it. But then again,if not her it would have just been someone else,right?!

They have identified the body. I wond hoe many books it will take to find out what happened. Love is found in the local police department in Tyler while also trying to discover the truth.
