Harlequin Intrigue. Feb. 2013. c.224p. ISBN 9780373696727. pap. $5.25; ebk. ISBN 9781460304020. ROMANTIC SUSPENSE
Placed in the Witness Security Program (WitSec) after the Mafia boss she testifies against is released in a mistrial, accountant Jessica Delaney barely escapes death when the van she's supposed to be riding in explodes. Now with another new identity and in the reluctant care of Deputy U.S. Marshal Ryan Jackson, Jessica heads for rural Tennessee—and potential safety. But her cover has been blown, and when her house goes up in flames, Jessica and Ryan must take to the hills, with hit men not far behind.
VERDICT Nonstop action, breathtaking sexual tension, a number of plot twists, a tough hero with a tender heart, and an emotionally vulnerable heroine who comes into her own will keep fans engrossed in this well-done Harlequin Intrigue debut. Diaz (Simon Says Die) lives in northern Florida.
