When Texas Ranger Marc Brannon returns to the line of duty, a high-profile murder mystery pits him against the vibrant–and vulnerable–junior investigator from his past. Years ago, Josette Langley made no secret of the fact that she was desperately in love with the rugged lawman, and despite their differences, the rough-hewn loner became drawn to the innocent young woman. Yet Marc and Josette parted on explosive terms when she made a shocking accusation that shattered both their lives. Now they are back together again….
And this time a lot more is at stake than just their hearts. For the woman Marc cherished is being targeted by a corrupt political figure who will stop at nothing to bury the truth. Can Marc and Josette set aside their stormy discord and see justice served? Or will they both be caught in the cross fire…?
About the author
The prolific author of more than one hundred books, Diana Palmer got her start as a newspaper reporter. A New York Times bestselling author and voted one of the top ten romance writers in America, she has a gift for telling the most sensual tales with charm and humor. Diana lives with her family in Cornelia, Georgia.
A bizarre misunderstanding between the hero and heroine fuels the tension in this otherwise unremarkable romantic suspense novel. Texas Ranger Marc Brannon and Josette Langley, a junior investigator for the DA's office, share a checkered history. As a teenager, Josette was assaulted by a local politician's son and then made out to be a liar in court; Marc even helped testify against her. Years later, Marc and Josette began an affair that ended abruptly when Marc discovered that Josette's hymen was too thick for penetration. At the time, Marc branded Josette a tease because she was willing to sleep with him but unable to complete the act, and he walked out on her, claiming that she was never "woman enough" for him. Now Marc and Josette are paired to investigate a murder that may be connected to the Mob. While the mystery plot unfolds predictably, the two try to sort out their past grievances. Palmer's fans are drawn to her macho cowboy heroes, but Marc's off-putting jokes about Josette needing "minor surgery" and his demands that she get therapy so that she'll stop being "sexless" are aggravating. Despite the steamy sex scenes that warm up the pages once the two eventually do connect, this is a passable romance that may please Palmer's current fans but won't convert new ones.
