Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Appearances can be deceptive, as a police chief learns when he meets a famous actress. Abby Langford has left her career and ex-husband behind in L.A. to return to her hometown of Harrington, Minn., with her nine-year-old daughter, Maddie. While cleaning out the home she recently purchased, Abby discovers a blood-stained knife. When police chief Josh Kincaid arrives to investigate, he assumes Abby staged the discovery as a publicity stunt. Josh's bitter divorce has left him mistrustful of women and convinced that Abby is the scheming adulterer portrayed in the tabloids. But Josh is forced to re-evaluate his opinion when a stalker begins sending Abby threatening notes. The romantic tension culminates in sizzling, satisfying love scenes as the reader tries to guess the stalker's identity. Both Abby and Josh seem to have almost insurmountable issues trusting one another, making the likelihood of a longterm relationship less believable. Nevertheless, the intense eroticism and multitude of red herrings create a fast-paced satisfying novel of romantic suspense.

From Booklist

In Miller’s engaging romantic-suspense novel, newly retired soap-opera-star Abby Langford returns to the small Minnesota town of her childhood and ends up buying a house rife with secrets. First she finds a bloody knife hidden in a sliding door; then she dreams about a murder and finds a bloodstain under the carpet. Abby just wants a new start for herself and her daughter, Maddie, and her adoptive family lends support. But when she begins receiving death threats, Josh, the police chief, thinks it is all just a publicity stunt. After spending some time with Abby, however, Josh begins to fall for her, and she for him. Their conflict and flirtation turn into a sensual emotional connection readers will be drawn into, even as the threats escalate into actual attempts on her life. This RWA Golden Heart–winning title is sure to please romantic-suspense fans who enjoy Sandra Brown and Catherine Coulter, and who are looking for a new author. --Amy Alessio

More About the Author

When award-winning author Diana Miller was eight, she decided she wanted to be Nancy Drew. But no matter how many garbage cans she dug through, conversations she "accidentally" overheard, and attics she searched, she never found a single cryptic letter, hidden staircase, or anything else even remotely mysterious. She worked as a lawyer, a soda jerk, a stay-at-home mom, a hospital admitting clerk, and a conference host before deciding that the best way to inject suspense into her otherwise satisfying life was by writing about it.

Diana is a five-time nominee for the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award and winner of a Golden Heart for Dangerous Affairs--a romantic suspense novel that shows not everyone in her home state is Minnesota Nice. She lives in the Twin Cities with her family.

When Abby Langford returns to her Minnesota hometown, fleeing LA and the soap opera role she has played so very well, she is looking for relief from a broken marriage and her ex-husband's numerous infidelities. She is also hoping to finally put the nightmare of her childhood behind her and retrieve and deal with the most horrific memories that stand between her and peace.

She and her nine-year-old daughter Maddie move into a house she has admired for years. She is drawn to it almost inexplicably.

Connecting with old friends is a wonderful start to her new life, but almost immediately, as she tries to write a mystery novel, strange happenings intrude upon the peace she sought. Why was a bloody knife in the walls of the new home? What do her strange and increasingly disturbing nightmares mean? Is she remembering something, or is she psychic? And why does a stalker's threats seemingly mesh with her dreams and other weird events that are occurring more and more frequently?

Chief of Police Josh Kincaid is the first responder when Abby discovers the knife; when other events are brought to his attention, he thinks she is making things up for publicity. What will have to happen before he changes his mind?

An exciting journey through various twists and turns kept me reading Dangerous Affairs, and the wonderfully fleshed out characters added just that extra something to make me eager to read until all the pieces fell into place. I was happy that I didn't figure it all out too quickly; by the time I began to suspect the one character who seemed the least likely perpetrator, I was almost at the end. And then there were more surprises. Five stars, and recommended for anyone who enjoys a romantic suspense novel.

"Dangerous Affairs" by Diana Miller is a romantic suspense about a soap star who returns to her Minnesota hometown after quitting her career in daytime drama. She and her daughter move into an old house she fantasized about during your unhappy childhood. Struggling to write a book, raise a child, and cope with her philandering ex, Abby doesn't know what to think about Josh, the handsome cop who thinks she's a media hungry opportunist. Someone does not want her back in town, in that house, and will stop at nothing to get her out.

Overall, this was a nice read. I kept coming back to see to check in on what the characters were doing. The pacing was good, the main characters likable, and the tension kept me eager to read more. Heather was a bit of a sterotypical bimbo. The romantic scenes could have used a little work; they didn't feel realistic, and the first big love scene between the main characters had a ridiculous conversation going on with the 'action'. This sentence, for example, would give a reader a glimpse at what to expect: "He was rock hard and so hot and damp she was surprised not to see steam."

I would like to read more of the author's work. One of the best things about his novel was that I didn't figure out the Whodunit part, and the suspense and mystery elements were well played.

What a wonderful debut novel by Diana Miller. Dangerous Affairs delivers-a page turner with well developed characters and an exciting and suspenseful plot. I love her attention to details. The sexual attraction between Abby and Josh is out of this world. What a treat you will be in for. I look forward to more Diana Miller.

What a great romance and set in my own home state of Minnesota, too! Abby comes home to Minnesota when she divorces her cheating husband after one too many affairs. She wants her daughter Maddie to have the wonderful childhood that she did not. Abby's parents were both drunks and her father threw in some physical abuse too. Enough that Abby learned to block out all the bad memories until therapy after her divorce started unblocking them.

Luckily, Abby was informally adopted by her best friend Laura's parents Bill and Mary. They are all still in her hometown to provide love and support. But Abby also seems to have attracted a stalker with her return home. It seems someone believes that the cheating adulteress she portrayed on a popular soap opera was the real Abby. Such a belief was aided by Abby's not defending herself when the press painted her as the one who had affairs that ended her marriage. Even the local police chief Josh has trouble separating the actress from the reality. Of course, Josh has the slight excuse of being in the process of getting over his own divorce and his own cheating wife.

At first, Josh is certain that Abby is manufacturing the stalker for publicity but it doesn't take long for him to see Abby as she really is. He begins investigating the stalker episodes and investigating the steadily more realistic dreams that Abby is having about a murder. Of course, things are even more complicated by a reappearance of the cheating husband and Josh's former young girlfriend who doesn't want to let him go.

This was a good mystery too. The identity of the stalker and his motives came as a complete surprise to me.

I really enjoyed this story and will be looking for more by this author.
