With the scintillating sensuality and high-voltage thrills that distinguish all of her blockbusters of romantic suspense, Linda Howard grips the imagination and touches the heart as only she can, in her sixth dazzling New York Times bestseller.
A talented painter in her early thirties, Paris Sweeney has achieved enviable success: her work sells at an exclusive New York City gallery, and her popularity is at an all-time high. Life is good, and Sweeney, as she prefers to be called, is content.

But lately, Sweeney's dreams -- lush, vivid, and drenched in vibrant hues -- seem to echo a growing restlessness that has taken hold of her. Suddenly, impulsively, Sweeney falls into a night of intense passion with millionaire Richard Worth. Now, the true dangers of her all-consuming urges are about to be revealed where Sweeney least expects it: in her paintings.

After a creative frenzy she can barely recall, Sweeney discovers she has rendered a disturbing image -- a graphic murder scene. Against her better instincts, she returns to the canvas time and again, filling out each chilling detail piece by piece. But when a shattering, real-life murder mirrors her creation, Sweeney falls under suspicion. With every stroke of her brush, she risks incriminating herself with her inexplicable knowledge of a deadly crime. And every desire -- including her hunger for Richard -- is loaded with uncertainty as Sweeney races to unmask a killer.

If you have read it before, then no problem, share your thoughts here.

I already started and got hooked by the story.

Sandra J Weaver (sandraweaver) | 149 comments I really enjoyed this book and am starting a reread. I especially liked Sweeny.

Eve (everf) | 816 comments Sandra you are right - Sweeney was great character.
I admired her inner strength and the way she tried to cope with her new "gift".
Richard was also interesting character. I enjoy heroes who fall in love with the heroine and do everything they can to win her. Yet even as he was determined to start a relationship with Sweeney, he didn't sleep with her right away nor he was nasty to his almost-ex Candra.

But I must say that the plot didn't always make sense. For instance, why did Sweeney suddenly become to see ghosts and things? What caused her sudden extrasensory perception or was she always that way and it just came to light?
Candra was also odd character - she was crying about losing Richard, who is supposedly the only man she has ever loved but neverless she kept cheating on him when they were married?

Sandra J Weaver (sandraweaver) | 149 comments Candra struck me as a very self-centered person.
She was charming and sweet as long as things were going her way. Since it didn't really bother her to sleep around on Richard (after all, those men meant nothing to her, and she would never consider ending her marriage), she didn't really understand why he just couldn't accept it, though she was aware he would consider cheating a deal breaker. I think she put it down to his "old fashioned" morality. Once she saw him with Sweeny, the reality of the divorce really hit her.

Marika | 78 comments I havent read this book before, so I was excited to get and read it. I'm at chapter 4 and really enjoying. Sweeney is very sweet and likeable heroine.

Marika | 78 comments I just finished and really, really enjoyed it. Sweeney was interesting and loveable heroine, Richard protective and possessive.
