Neither side was over done and both were very believable.

I am pleased to say Julie Miller did a great job with this book too. I have read quite a few of Ms Miller's books and she has not disappoint me yet. Maggie and John in this book took my heart for what each one had to face in life. A strong story line. How many people in real life are facing the very same thing John has to face in this book. Look around you in your town and city. This book can be a real life story for many in the real world. Heartbreaking but true. Ms. Miller put this book for all to read and try to express so much in one book. Thanks Ms. Miller for this book and I have gained a new respect for all service men and women who gives their all for our freedom. sue Leech

This was my first foray into the Harlequin Intrigue Series, and I really enjoyed this book. It had enough mystery to move the plot along but not overshadow the main love story of it all. I liked both main characters quite a bit, and I felt their romance moved at the right pace. I have enough suspicious as to who the real "perp" might be, and I'm looking forward to reading the others in the series. Overall, I liked the story, and I really enjoy Miller's style. Would highly recommend to other readers.

John Murdock is a former marine trying to live as a civilian. He's spent the past year recovering from losing his right leg in a road-side bomb during a tour of duty. Moving into an apartment of his own, he crosses paths with Maggie Wheeler, a KCPD officer dealing with demons of her own as well as trying to make detective.

Maggie is put on a task force to assist in capturing a serial rapist who's been inactive for the past 10 years. With her ex-husband now out on parole for raping her years ago, she's the perfect member of the task force to speak with the first victim of the Rose Red Rapist in 10 years using her own experience.

John thinks Maggie is being civil to him but feels she sees him as he does, someone who is no longer a man. Maggie sees him as a hero, first helping her and her 10 year old son escape an elevator in their apartment building that breaks down between floors and then becoming her friend. He also shows her she isn't the worthless woman her ex-husband makes her feel like.

As more and more coincidental breakdowns within the apartment building occur, trying to link her husband to them proves difficult. Maggie has doubts because of her ex-husband and his abuse of her in the past and questions if she could even be a detective. John has faith in her and bonds with her son.

Their story is refreshing as John isn't the hot and overtly sexy hero of most romance novels. He's a man who's served his country and paid a price for it. Maggie is a 6 foot woman with insecurity issues. As their relationship grows, they each break through the defenses of the other and find love while dealing with her crazy ex and a serial rapist emerges with a thirst to go after more women.

A good read with people you can relate to.

I loved that the hero was a wounded veteran from Afghanistan. The hero John lost a leg in service to his country and has just finished his rehab. John returns home to try and pickup the pieces to his life. He was a firefighter, but with his injury he can no longer do his previous job, so he has been given an opportunity to work on the arson squad. The heroine Maggie is a cop with a secret. Her ex-husband was abusive and had tried to kill her. He's just been released from prison and has started stalking her. Julie Miller makes you care deeply for the characters. This one is a definite keeper.

Maggie Wheeler's life has not been easy but things are starting to look up. Being asked to be part of the task force formed to catch the Red Rose Rapist is her chance to prove her skills as a cop.

John Murdock has always answered the call to serve and proctect. He moves in next door to Maggie and soon relizes that danger is breathing down Maggie and her son's necks. Offering to help John and Maggie start falling for each other. But will Maggie's past destory the budding romance? And will the task force manage to catch the Red Rose Rapist before they strike again?

Julie Miller delivers a great start to what looks to be another great series. Along with all the new faces are old friends from her past books. Plus she gives us a new villian that will bring shivers to your spine. I am looking forward to getting to know the rest of the task force as they work together to bring down the Red Rose Rapist.
