As a detective with the Maryland Police Department, Denise Dory is relentless in her pursuit to rise to the top. Her hard work pays off when she's finally offered a position on the exclusive Special Task Force and is called upon to investigate the death of a prominent senator.

Little does she know that her dream job will bring her into close proximity with Tom Phyfer, her former partner. Denise's reunion with Tom brings to the surface powerful emotions that she's long suppressed.

Tom never knew how much he missed Denise until transferring to Washington. Now he's back to pursue the biggest investigation in his career. In close company with Denise, Tom faces a difficult task in keeping the relationship on a platonic level.

Comprised of more intrigue than romance, Uncovered Passions lacks sensuality but makes up for it with suspense. Courtni Wright definitely has a flair for writing mystery. (Feb., 288 pp, $5.99)
