Fast paced, this is a heart-pounding romantic suspense. Who doesn’t enjoy a tightly paced story about long-lost loves reunited through danger and intrigue, especially when the characters are as delightful as Gena and Rocco? However, there’s a lot of backstory that occasionally gets in the way of the flow.

Rocco Taylor has never gotten over Gena, the love of his life, who got married while he was on assignment. Although he has left her alone, not a day goes by that he doesn’t think about her. Now his enemies have targeted those he loves, including Gena, and Rocco vows to protect her. Gena Armstrong has been through a lot. She’s endured love and loss. She lost Rocco; she lost their baby; and she suffered at the hands of a vengeful and abusive husband. She’s strong, though. She recovered from a drinking problem and is rebuilding her life now that her ex-husband is dead. While a friendlies dying in a hospital bed and she’s once again struggling with loss, Rocco shows up. The blast from the past stirs up old memories, hurts and passions. Can Gena trust their love this time? Will it be enough to survive what evil is in store for them? (ZEBRA, Feb., 352 pp., $6.99)
