Interior decorator Suzanne Barron rents an apartment to John Huntington, a former Navy SEAL known as Midnight Man. He's sexy and exudes the arrogance of a man who gets what he wants. Within hours, John and Suzanne have mind-blowing, no-holds-barred sex.

When Suzanne becomes a target for some vicious killers, she turns to John for his help. He vows to protect her and in the meantime brands her his over and over again until Suzanne fears she is losing parts of herself.

Rice's story is packed with plot and sexual tension. Readers who enjoy fast-paced suspense with their romantica will definitely enjoy MIDNIGHT MAN. However, John may be too superherolike, overshadowing Suzanne, who seems too passive next to his strong presence. (dl $6.20)
