What's better than a strong heroine who follows her gut, fights for the rights and freedom of others and knows when to ask for help to get what she wants? When she's matched with an equally strong and compelling hero. The characters are top-notch, and their gradual romance -- entrenched in mystery and suspense -- leaves readers sighing contentedly as the last page folds.
While he's not convinced Alex is right, he's too attracted to her, and worried about her safety, to walk away. Will Alex's instincts and penchant for trouble get her killed, or will Nathan be able to save her and convince her he's the only man for her? (POCKET STAR, Dec., 400 pp., $7.99)
