I read this book on autopilot which is how it seemed to me to be written. When you're reading a good, fast-paced, well written book you can overlook a lot. But while reading a boring book, your mind has a lot of time to dwell on little nitpicky things. Like, how many times can a person smolder? The word "smolder" or "smoldering" was used ad nauseum throughout this book. I get it that Jillian and Harrison were hot for each other but I am sure the word "smolder" has some synonyms.

I loved this book. The story line made this a very easy read. I could not put this book down. When I did put it down, my mind was wondering about the suspects and the mole. I was very surprised at the end. Without giving away the ending to someone that hasn't not read this book, I will say that the peculiar actions of one character will have you surprised as to the result. Excellent book. Also, just the right amount of passion for me.

What a wonderful story of love. Both the hero and heroine are wonderful, genuine characters and the book is nicely put together with an action/adventure/murder plot. I love Ms. Carmichael's work.

Attorney Jillian Newman's life was life was drastically changed in the blink of an eye. After witnessing a murder, she realizes that killer has now set his sights on her and the only person who she can turn to is the one person she's not sure she can trust.
Detective Harrison Blake has been called to the scene of a murder and he's in luck, because there's a witness to the crime. When he meets the witness, Jillian, he can't understand why he's so drawn to her or why he feels the need to protect

The story was ok. I figured out a few things before the ending, and that took away from the story for me.
