Jerah is a man haunted by the past and a pair of lonely eyes in the face of the partner and the woman he turned away from his bed - right before she was gunned down in a brutal fire fight he sent her into.
Unable to forgive himself enough to fall in love with anyone else, Jerah is knocked to his knees when Rissa walks in on his undercover operation - alive and sexier than ever.
In order to keep Jerah's cover from being blown, Rissa is forced to act as his lover, the one thing she has dreamed about for 8 years. And the one thing she can never have if she is to keep Jerah from those that still hunt her.
Rissa is trapped in a race against time to prove Jerah is innocent of the string brutal murders he is accused of, before he becomes a victim as well. But every tortuously sweet moment with Jerah puts him in more danger and more of her heart lost to his searing touch.
I highly recommend this novel, Rissa is a strong heroine who has to stay tough in order to protect her very vulnerable heart. Jerah is a sexy leading man with a tender touch.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
I enjoyed this romantic suspense novel mostly because it was unique. Rissa is a person in a really tight position due to her parents and the kind work she has chosen. Jerah is a detective that was touched by Rissa many years ago, but has believed her to be dead up until now. The woman he knew in the past is certainly not the woman standing before him now. But, he still loves her, and Rissa loves him, but the problem Rissa has with Jerah and pursuing the relationship is one that is nearly impossible to overcome.
The story has a few threads going at once as Rissa was assigned the undercover job and has been partnered with a married man who is really dedicated to his family. This makes things a little awkward as Rissa, who is now going by the name “Cindy” will have to make it look like they are having an affair. Rissa gets sucked into Jerah’s mess too. These are dangerous people , members of drug cartels,with hidden agendas and “Cindy” will have to look like a hard partying woman that likes money and sex .
As each day passes the tension in the case rises as does the heat between Jerah and Rissa. But, Rissa can’t forget the past and simply can not have a future.. with Jerah or anyone else.
One small complaint is that the use of Rissa’s real name and the use of her undercover name got tossed back and forth which made it confusing at times. I thought it was sort of strange that Jerah had known Rissa eight years ago and quickly began using her new name, but then he, or the 3rd person, couldn’t decide which name to use consistently. I guess maybe Jerah used the name “Cindy” so they could stay convincing in the undercover roles they had to play. That makes sense I guess. It was just a little hard to decide which name to latch onto. I finally just went with Rissa.
The plot is riveting. By the half way mark I knew I would be up late to finish this one. My goodness! I didn’t know who trust and there are some really wild and crazy times for both Rissa and Jerah. At first the relationship between Rissa and Jerah is in the forefront while the crime is being laid out. There is a lot of baggage and a lot of misunderstandings that will have to be ironed out, but the romance was really great with one very memorable scene most ladies will relate too.
I wasn’t sure how things would turn out and this is certainly wasn’t the traditional type of HEA. But, it fits and it worked and even though there was a really high price to pay, Rissa and Jerah are finally free.
