Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

As an employee of Department 6, a private security company, Rachel Jessop knew there would be difficult and dangerous assignments; but as far as Rachel is concerned, working with fellow operative Nate Ferrentino should qualify for hazard pay. Unfortunately, the only way into Paradise, the former Arizona ghost town and current residence of the Church of the Covenant and its charismatic leader Ethan Wycliff, is if Rachel and Nate are married. Rachel knows Ethan has to be stopped. Not only did the cult almost kill a woman by stoning her for her sins, there also seems to be some connection between the church and the recent disappearance of a teen. Given their own tangled romantic past, working with Nate is bound to be challenging; but then again, no one ever said working for Department 6 would be easy. Novak expertly blends romantic thrills, suspenseful chills, and realistically complicated characters together in a white-knuckle read that is certain to keep readers riveted to the last page. --John Charles --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

This mesmerizing start of a series is a hauntingly realistic story about a religious cult that must be brought down before any more of the helpless can become tragic victims. It intrigued me due to the fact that groups such as this 200-strong Church of the Covenant take such a powerful hold on the psychic of so many. It is frightening to see how much power the leaders of these cultures use to brainwash and control weak, humble, and down-on-their-luck innocents. The loyalty of this cult is a great wall used to prevent any infiltration of authority. Department 6, a private security company, assigns Rachel and Nate the task of penetrating the cult as husband and wife and to find out anything illegal that authorities could use to break up and destroy this isolated group in Paradise, Arizona, a barren, scorchingly hot and isolated place that is perfect for the ruthless life of the leaders of this secret community. I felt the oppressive heat of the area, the deception of the leaders, and I wanted Rachel and Nate to help the followers escape this monstrosity. Well written and brilliantly inciteful, I look forward to reading the rest of this Hired Guns series.

Brenda Novak is one of the best writers of romantic suspense that I have read. Her plot lines are believable and have detail that other writers miss. I had read this book in paperback when it first came out but have purchased for my Kindle & decided to re-read it.

Department 6 is a secretive security agency. This is book 1 in the series and involves a religious cult. Rachel & Nate infiltrate the cult as a married couple to try to find out what all the cult is involved in. This detail on the cult & their practices was well thought out. While Rachel & Nate were forced to stay close together, their chemistry went off the charts.

Once I picked this book up again, I couldn't stop until I was done. The twists & turns keep you guessing & the romance keeps you hoping they will find a way to stay together. Loved it!

Why I Read this Book: I have been reading quite of few romantic suspense novels lately and what I found out is that I really enjoy reading this sub-genre. I am also fascinated with CSI and forensics. So when I came across this book, it caught my interest. Though, I was a bit concerned about the religious cult element and I had hoped it wouldn't be too overbearing. So much for wishful thinking.

What I Liked: The plot was well thought out. The religious cult that the author created was scarily surreal. We hear about cults like these in the news from time to time and this author nailed it right on the head.

The infiltration process was interesting, exciting and felt like a dangerous thrill ride. I was turning page after page, on the edge of my seat, waiting to find out how things were going to end. Once the action started happening, there was no putting this book down.

What I Didn't Like: White Heat was heavy on the religious cult, and I mean lay it on thick heavy! Yes, I know that was the plot of the story before going in but it was a bit overwhelming.

I love tension, especially between the two main characters, but the characters also need have to chemistry. The air was filled with thick tension between Nate and Rachel but I wasn't feeling the chemistry. And the love scenes between them left more to be desired. They were short and not too telling. I was hoping for steamy love scenes and unfortunately it was more fizzle than sizzle. The back story of the awkward feelings between Nate and Rachel wasn't convincing, especially on Rachel's part.

Overall Impression: White Heat was an okay read. It was a bit too long for my taste, especially with the lack of "heat" between the two main characters.

Rachel Jessop and her partner Nate Ferrentine from Department 6 have to go into the Church of the Covenant..there assignment is to find out what is going on in there...
They have to play a role...things start to become a little more serious then either expected..and soon Nate isn't liking the operation at all..It's putting Rachel in a lot of danger since Ethan Wycliff wants more from Rachel..and in order to keep up appearances she goes ahead with it.

The twist and turns in this book are really intense. What the find out adds to the intense feelings.

Now feelings between Rachel and Nate develop..so Nate needs to do something about getting in there when things go south.

What will happen? Will they find what there looking for?

Buy the book and find out..Don't miss the other Department 6 books.
Killer Heat, and Body Heat..

How am I supposed to fall asleep tonight? Just finished White Heat because I. COULD. NOT. PUT. IT. DOWN. With so many twists and turns that I kept guessing wrong. I kept expecting the cavalry to ride in but . . . oh no. No spoiler alerts here. I never give away the end of a book. Easy to keep the characters separate, easy to read, and exceptionally easy to fall into. It always amazes me how well Brenda Novak writes no matter what the genre, and I'm convinced she can write anything.
