THE HEAT IS ON
THE HEAT IS ON (3) by Jill Shalvis: After Bella Manchelli has a one-night stand with the tall, dark and drop-dead sexy detective Jacob Madden, she expects to never see him again. When another of her dates turns up dead on her doorstep, however, Jacob re-enters her life. Bella’s the only suspect, but Jacob believes she’s innocent. As the body count rises, so does the heat between Bella and Jacob. While the romance is well developed, the suspenseful subplot misses its mark due to the lack of a believable villain.
