A car accident brings new life to romance author Lacey Avery when handsome fire captain Damien Christoval comes to her rescue. Both need to let go of past hurts, however, in order to move forward. For Damien, this is easier said than done—Lacey is the mirror image of his deceased wife.

Having been shunned by her previous beau in the face of tragedy, Lacey is reluctant to open her heart to another. For Damien, though, this is the perfect opportunity for him to move beyond mourning his wife. But can Lacey forgive him when she discovers her eerie resemblance to the dead woman?

Nothing short of inventive, the plot of Lace unfolds in a well-structured, creative and engrossing manner. Lacey and Damien are well suited for one another, and secondary characters serve only to highlight an already terrific novel. Carmichael's latest is sexy and thrilling. (Dec., 224 pp., $9.95)
