While others cower, Olivia dares Alastair to face the world. He finds her impertinent, but his interest in her shocks him out of his depression. Olivia pushes him and he pushes back, causing sparks to fly. Alastair joins her to find a killer and to weigh the importance of love over revenge. (POCKET, Apr., 380 pp., $5.99)
