Very suspensful and somewhat surprising ending (Nate wasn't a ghost). I didn't like Dillon in the beginning. His actions toward Jamie were borderline rape. ( )

This feels like a really old novel but it's dated 2003. It has a nicely dark and tortured Stuart hero, buthe entire plot and scenario is so preposterous that I could not suspend disbelief and just go with it. Jaime hunts down Dillon her beloved cousins bad best friend to see if she can find anymore about her cousins death. Dillon is all inscrutable, Jaimie is all assumptions and the villian is ridiculously evil (and Jaimie's adoptive mother is not much better) ( )

After the death of her cousin, Jamie goes to his friend Dillon's house to collect his things. Problem is, Dillon is the man Jamie had once had a crush on, who was there the night she was raped. Problem two, someone doesn't seem to want her around.

Rereading this because I'd clearly repressed what happened, I loathed it.

There are some great moments in this story but there's also a heroine who is almost too stupid to live and a hero who has to angst over everything regularly and who believes that good sex will overcome rape trauma. Yeah.

There were times when I wanted to yell at the author for some of the leaps of faith that she takes us through and some of it was just plain unbelievable. Yes the main character is naive but she stretches my belief a lot. Jamie Kincaid is a teacher (which even if it was an elite boarding school should have rubbed some of the innocent off) who is going to find out what happened to her cousin, Nate. She has to revisit some old wounds and deal with Dillon Gaynor, the bad boy who apparently steered Nate down a path of wrong.

And yes, in other hands this could have been a great story but Stuart turned it into bah and whuh. I have read a few of her stories and some of the scenes, particularly the sex, feel tacked on in an afterthought. ( )

This romantic suspense was at times nasty, yet angsty enough to be enjoyable.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0754077578, Hardcover)

Jamie Kincaid knows that she can't move on with her life until she has answers. And she's walking straight into the fire to find them.

A year ago Jamie learned that her beloved cousin, Nate, had been killed. Beaten to death in what police suspect was a drug deal gone wrong, he was found by his childhood friend Dillon Gaynor. Dillon had always been the baddest of the bad boys, leading Nate astray, about Nate's death. He's not about to volunteer any information, and Jaime's only choice is to head to the Wisconsin town where he lives to find the answers for herself.

Jamie shows up unannounced on Dillon's doorstep, only to find that Dillon is as dangerous and seductive as she remembers. But despite his silky hostility, she discovers that she can't leave. Things start disappearing, strange accidents begin to happen and Jamie doesn't know whether Dillon is trying to seduce her or scare her away. And if she gives in to his predatory games, will she lose her soul? Or her life?

But something else -- something evil and threatening -- is going on. And Dillon knows more that he's saying. Is he the one behind the strange threats. . . or is he Jamie's only chance for survival?
