When the vicious killer she has helped send to jail escapes and threatens revenge, company president Erin Cortland reluctantly agrees to let her father hire a bodyguard-and ends up in the forced company of sexy Jake Hunter, the one man she never wanted to see again. The generally lively writing keep things moving despite a rather thin, not always suspenseful plot; and although the protagonists are often exasperating and occasionally dense in their refusal to come to terms with their feelings, the attraction between them is exciting and the sexual tension electric. Many of Ray's (Undeniable, Arabesque: Pinnacle, 1995) books have appeared on Blackboard, the African American National Best Seller List; she lives in Dallas.

The man she was dancing with had his hands all over her, but before Jake Hunter could go to her rescue, Erin frees herself from the unwanted advances. Jake assures her she is safe with him and asks her to dance. The dance is slow, sensuous and leads to a hungry, devouring kiss. Then Hunter suggests his place or hers? Erin is offended and leaves the party, and Jake would remember her as the one that got away. Several months later, Hunter is called to an assignment in Austin. Erin Cortland arrives at her fathers home and two police officers are there to inform her that the man she testified against in a murder trial has escaped prison. The police are sure they will recapture the man very soon, but her father takes no chances and hires a bodyguard. Erin and Hunter can't believe it! He refuses to take the case, and Erin refuses to have him around. But her father insists, and after a phone call, Hunter agrees. He can't help but remember Erin and the powerful effect she had on him, and apparently, still does. But he can't forget the last time he mixed business with his pleasure. She died. As head of Cortland Innovations, Erin is constantly in the spotlight which makes Hunter's job more difficult. And Quinn Mathes wants Erin, and the vice-president's position. Quinn and Hunter become immediate enemies as they are jealous of each other where Erin is concerned and later, Hunter exposes Quinn for what he has done. Erin tempts Hunter and he cannot resist her. She tells him to have no regrets and he thinks he can leave when the job is done, he just doesn't know how he'll do that. When the escapee runs them off the road, Hunter is shot. Somehow , Hunter protects Erin, but at what price to himself? The next few days will be crucial to Hunter's life, and both their futures.A good, quick read.

I ENJOYED THIS BOOK SO MUCH THAT I POSTPONED READING THE LAST 20 PAGES UNTIL THE FOLLOWING MORNING, IN ORDER TO PROLONG THE JOY!!. AND THEN AFTER READING IT IN ITS ENTIRETY, I REREAD IT AGAIN.
I THEN PICKED UP "SILKEN BETRAYAL" AND STARTED AGAIN ON AN EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER. EVERYTIME I SAY, "GIRLFRIEND CAN'T OUTDO THIS BOOK," SHE MAKES A LIER OUT OF ME.
NOW, I'M LOST IN THE PAGES OF "SILKEN BETRAYAL" WITH LAUREN BENNETT AND JORDAN HAMILTON AND BELIEVE ME READERS, RUN RUN RUN AND RUN GET THIS ONE ALSO. IF YOU'VE NEVER EXPERIENCED MS RAY, YOU'LL HAVE TO BEGIN IN SMALL DOSES AND WORK YOURSELF UP OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR MIND. THANKS AGAIN FOR SUCH A GREAT BOOK, I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO AUGUST 1999 TO GET "UNTIL THERE WAS YOU."
MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOUR PEN.
AGAIN, TO YOU ROMANCE READERS, TRY TO GET ANYTHING SHE'S PUT PEN TO PAPER ON, YOU TOO WILL BECOME A BELIEVER. SEE YA!
