A Stella Cameron classic. Now in eBook.
British photographer Olivia FitzDurham is running for her life--all the way to New York City and a man she’s never met. The pictures she took for a London magazine seem harmless, but the man who tried to push her off the tube platform definitely meant business. NYPD Detective Aiden Flynn isn’t the “Sam” Olivia thinks she met on the internet, but he suspects that the man who is poses a real threat to Olivia’s safety--as well as his own. Suddenly Olivia and Aiden are the targets in a dangerous game that will take them across the country and the Atlantic. On the run from a ring of thieves desperate for Olivia’s incriminating photos, the two strangers must work together to clear their names--and escape with their lives…
This eBook of GLASS HOUSES contains sample chapters of Stella Cameron’s paranormal, DARKNESS BOUND.
Ever-popular Cameron (Once and for Always) executes a tried-and-true formula of romance and suspense and adds a dash of blackmail, Internet hijinks and transatlantic sleuthing with her latest, rollicking novel. Aiden Flynn is an NYPD detective whose social life is the pits; he's a Mustang fanatic and dog lover addicted to the emotional safety of online conversations in place of the dating rat race. He's housesitting a vacationing colleague's orchids when he starts snooping through his absent associate's e-mails. Desperate missives from a London photographer named Olivia FitzDurham catch Aiden's eye. Apparently, Olivia took some photos for a magazine style spread, and soon a man was stalking her, claiming to be from the magazine, clamoring for the negatives and offering a "kill fee" for them. Aiden urges her to come to New York City for sanctuary, but not long after her arrival, he finds himself framed as a cop-gone-bad, and the budding romantic duo are forced to take their love on the run. Cameron's characterizations are winning: Aiden is rugged without being annoyingly macho, Olivia is eccentric, self-deprecating yet charming, and there's a pair of bumbling British crooks who are a lethal version of Laurel and Hardy. The Judas character is spotted early on, there's an overlong denouement and some of the dialogue is corny, but these flaws are nothing a good screenwriter couldn't fix: this fast-paced book couldn't be more camera-ready.
