Reed Conway has just been released from serving 15 years for the murder of his stepfather. Now that he is out, it is time to go back to his hometown to find the real killer. The years spent in prison have not been easy for Reed, but he is a survivor.
Ella Porter, the daughter of the man who sent Reed to prison, is a thirty year old judge. As a shy teenager, she had a crush on Reed, the star athlete who was also "a bad boy". Unknown to her, Reed was aware of her in high school, but did not attempt to date her.
Angered by his conviction, Reed sent Ella a few letters before he went to prison which frightened her when he described his desire for her. After Reed is released, more suggestive letters are sent to Ella - did Reed send them? Ella doesn't know what to think - does Reed want to hurt her or does he feel the electricity for her that she feels for him?
Besides Reed and Ella's relationship, there are secondary characters that make this a well-rounded and complete story. The question is who framed Reed and there are many suspects which makes the book exciting to the very last page.
If you have read another Beverly Barton book, Lone Wolf's Lady, the hero from that book, Luke, also was sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit and he and the heroine work together to solve the mystery. This book also has several "steamy" scenes.
Could it be Ella's father Webb Porter, now a senator with a roving eye and zipper, and a shared past with Reed's mother; could it be Judy, Reed's harried mother who suffered greatly at the hands of her sadistic husband; could it be Reed's sister Regina, whose near rape at the hands of her stepfather have cause irreparable damage; or could it be Ella's aunt and uncle who also share a sordid past with the deceased. With plenty of suspects, the two have their work cut out for them!
Ella and Reed make a striking duo. And boy does this couple sizzle! Barton's gothic tale of murder, forgiveness, and love has plenty to keep you entertained, though I felt there were far too many romantic entanglements for a single novel, causing some of them to not be as developed as they could have been.
