From: Virtually Perfect . . .

Raine watched the words travel across the screen and could hardly believe it. They were going to meet, to really meet. In person. For real.

Nilla smiles and stares into your luscious brown eyes. "Okay. So, in three days we’ll know."

Rider nods and pulls you close to him. "Seems like forever. Are you sure you don’t want me to drive up tonight?"

Nilla laughs and runs her fingers through your hair. "No, I am sorely tempted, but this is probably a better idea. And remember, this is just dinner – we can opt out at any time."

Jack knew it was the right thing, though he was so hot for her he could barely imagine not touching her, or making some of what they had shared a reality. But she was providing an out for him, too. Just in case. And when he got there, if things were good, who knew what could happen? He had a feeling about this; he was willing to just go with it.

"Agreed. Just dinner -- unless you beg me to go back to your place and engage in illicit activities."

"You never know. Maybe it will be you doing the begging."

Jack smiled, his eyes darkening. Desire raced through his blood and flowed through his fingers out into the words.

"I’d beg for you Nilla, you can count on it. I’d to drop to my knees in front of you, kiss your feet, taste the skin on the back of your knee, and then work my way up, slowly, taste you, run my tongue over you until you come with my mouth on you, until we are both begging. And that’s only the beginning."

"Um, I’m not sure this is a good idea…"

Raine swallowed and tried to focus as her breath became shallow. The hunger she had been feeling for weeks was a suddenly a little frightening. This wasn’t a game anymore; it was real. He was real. They were going to sit across a table from one another and have dinner and talk, and all that while they would both be remembering all of these secrets that had passed between them. She closed her eyes and tried to settle herself.

Rider stares into your eyes. "Why not?"

"I don’t think we should really discuss this, considering...."

"Nilla, tell me, tell me how you feel, how your body feels right now…"

Raine tried to think, to quell the heat pounding through her bloodstream. She wanted to back off, and knew she should, but sheer desire weakened her. Suddenly, the screen felt cold. She knew what she needed, and asked him for it.

"Rider, your number. Give me your number."

"What?"

"Your phone number, Rider, tell me. I’ll call you. I need to . . . hear you."

Jack was shocked speechless as he contemplated her request. No, not a request, a demand. The idea of actually talking to her stole his breath, and he didn’t bother thinking about it, but just responded.

"Oh, yeah, sweetheart, yes. Here."

Jack typed in his cell phone number.

"I’ll call you in a little while. I just want to shower and change out of my work clothes."

Work clothes? He smiled knowingly, pure masculine satisfaction pooling in his chocolate-brown eyes. She’d come directly to find him. He acknowledged her message, and signed off.

His house was suddenly incredibly still and quiet; he could hear his own heart pounding. The wind howled outside the windows and minutes slowed down as if he was drugged, the feeling of waiting for the phone to ring was weighing down on him. God, she’d taken him by surprise.

She was changing. She was taking a shower. He closed his eyes and imagined the hot water running over her naked, soft skin. Then she would put on . . .what? His imagination nearly drove him mad. By the time the phone rang, he had imagined her in everything from black dominatrix leather to pink lace – and then in nothing at all. His mind went still. He pressed the talk button and was relieved to discover his voice actually worked.

"Nilla."

Raine thought for sure she would pass out just hearing him say her name – well, her screen name, but the same difference. Low and smooth, it slid over her like hot lava, and she tried to sound calm in response,

"Hey, Rider."

Her voice was like whiskey, hot and golden. He closed his eyes and let it ease over him for a moment before speaking again.

"It’s much like I imagined it would be."

"What’s that?"

"Your voice."

He settled more comfortably into the chair and smiled into the phone. "When we talked online, sometimes I imagined I could hear you, but the real thing is a million times better."

Raine smiled back. "It is. I love hearing you too." She took a deep breath, calming nerves. "This is pretty intense."

"Something tells me it’s about to get even more intense, Nilla."

By J. Howarth on September 30, 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I very much enjoyed this book, and like the other reviewer, I can't believe that this is the authors first.

What makes it stand out is not only the romance sweet & the sex hot, but it is a thriller to boot! Someone is stalking Raine and although there is no big surprise in who it is, it still makes for a great read.

The only negative thing I have to say about this book is though while I am aware its fiction, when Raine & Jack first have sex he trys to get protection on and she says not to worry, shes on the pill. Hello? The pill ain't going to protect you from STDs... Anyway, its fiction and in fiction everything will be ok!!!

A very enjoyable and virtually perfect read...

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Salem, Massachusetts, Raine Covington detests the constant come-ons of males and avoids any social activity outside of cyberspace or office functions. At the office computer guru Jackson Harris is attracted to Raine, but feels she thinks he is a roach so he keeps away from her except when he works on her machine.
Rider and Nilla met on line, but not in person. They are attracted to one another and Rider wants to meet Nilla in the real world. She hesitantly agrees to a rendezvous. However, when Rider and Nilla see one another, they do not see blossoming love, but instead Jack and Raine. Jack knows he must persuade his Nilla that they belong together, but she cannot reconcile the bug with her "lover".
The cyberspace relationship is cleverly done so that the audience observing the chats believes something special is occurring. Rider-Jack is a wonderful protagonist in both personas while Raine fails to come close to Nilla as she holds her beloved culpable for being Jack as if he set her up. Still fans will enjoy this virtual romance that can turn perfect if Jack can convince Raine that he really loves her.

This delightful romance is the story of Raine and Jack. Connecting online in a chat room, Raine feels comfortable revealing her innermost thoughts and feelings to Jack and vice versa. The anonymity of the online world lets them be who they really are, and develop a relationship. When Jack wants to meet Raine in the real world she eventually agrees - and discovering that they know each other in real life is a shock neither expected. Can they trust what they've built online to provide a basis for a future together?

I've been wanting to dive into some HQN older Blaze books recently and I picked this one up on the premise, as internet chat rooms and online dating sights have only picked up since this book was first released. It holds up well over time (having been released initially in 2004)and the circumstances and scenarios that Jack and Raine find themselves in are exactly what one would expect now. I really enjoyed both characters. Jack in his real life is a confidant, somewhat quiet and focused man, all personalities that come through in his online persona. Raine on the other hand, in her real life world is a no-nonsense, get things done woman who can't afford to let anything slip and be vulnerable emotionally. But online she can be herself and reveal those innermost feelings. The sexual attraction between them online is quite sizzling and when they meet in person, despite the circumstances (no spoilers!) the attraction holds up equally well and they find themselves unable to resist each other. The love scenes are steamy and intense.

There is a secondary suspenseful subplot that plays out throughout the story and is key to the decisions that Raine and Jack make.
