The newest entry in Ray's Invincible Women series brings us hostage
negotiator Rafael, a challenge to
any woman. The heroine, Nathalyia, presents challenges of her own. The beauty of Ray's series is that the
reader always finds mature adults
as the main protagonists and there
isn't an overflow of inane chatter. These people actually carry on conversations that don't tax your patience. They make sense.

Nathalyia Fontaine is content to run the restaurant that her husband left to her when he passed away. Rafael Dunlap feels that his dangerous job with the police department prevents him from having the normal family life that his four brothers enjoy.

But that does not mean he can't have fun ... as long as both parties agree that it's not forever. When the two come together, the rightness of their being one is obvious to all of the Dunlaps, but Rafael is nothing if not stubborn. Then Nathalyia's past, in the form of a greedy, grasping sister, turns up like a bad penny. But Rafael is a protector that any woman would love to claim. (ST. MARTIN'S GRIFFIN, Mar., 322 pp., $14.99)
