Product Description

Product Description

She thought her fiancé was the perfect man—until he turned out to be the perfect killer…

Katherine Cole is running for her life, desperate to escape the Valentine Killer—so-called because he stabs his victims through the heart and leaves them holding a telltale single red rose. Still he tracks her to New Orleans and begins carving a bloody path to her door. But this time, Katherine refuses to run any farther. This time, she’ll do anything to stop the madman she once loved, even trust the sexy cop promising to keep her safe…

Detective Dane Black never lets his emotions interfere with his job, even as the Valentine Killer surfaces in New Orleans to stalk his prey. But when Dane agrees to protect the killer’s ex-fiancée, Katherine Cole, he can’t ignore the passion kindling between them. After a single unforgettable night binds them body and soul, Dane knows he won’t rest until Katherine is safe in his arms—and the Valentine Killer is dead. Dark and intensely sexy, this romantic suspense novel from USA Today bestselling author Cynthia Eden is sure to leave readers breathless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read. 12 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
4+ Stars. There was sooo much more to this book than the summary let on. It really was a slam-bang story. Although a couple of the twists the reader sees coming, they were handled well and exciting. The only really bad thing I have to say about the story is that it made me think of the last Lord of the Rings movie. You know where you thought it was going to end, then it kept going on several more times and scenes. That's what happened with this book. Just when I thought it was about to end, something else happened, and the story took another even creepier turn and kept on going.

Katherine Cole has been moved to New Orleans in the Witness Protection program after she found out her fiancé was a stone cold serial killer. She actually walked in on him when he was finishing up one of his murders. He escapes, and she is whisked away to a new life for her safety. When women start getting killed in New Orleans in the same fashion, she knows her fiancé, now known as the Valentine Killer, has found her. She decides to take a stand this time, and goes to the police with her information, hoping to help stop the killings. Katherine winds up being protected by, and working closely with the lead detective on the case, Dane Black. Eventually, being in such close quarters cause the inevitable romantic fireworks between the two.

This was a good story, elevated by some nice and unexpected plot twists. There were a few small things that kept it from being an outstanding read; (especially one of the reveals about the killer late in the book that didn't work well for me, and a couple of unprofessional and un-coplike actions by Dane); but all in all, it was a great read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Die for me 1 April 2013
By Kate Phillips TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
So, I am not going to lie to you, this book is a little bit silly. It is scratch the paper small the cheese kinda silly. It was a little cliched, it moved at the speed of a freight train and I am not sure I got everything. It tried to be very smart and sometimes is fell flat on its face.
BUT, sometimes this book managed to get it right.

I have a hidden talent, I can smell plot twists coming from a mile away. Yet there were quite a few moments where this book managed to surprise me.

The truth is that despite the cheese, the clichés and the fall on my sword characters I found this book strangely intriguing and I struggled to put it down. Sure, it was overdone but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Katherine and Dane were good characters (him more than her) but it was the Valentine killer himself that interested me. I found him bizarrely charming. There were a few to many characters and I felt this was written as though it was a movie instead of a book which made thins a smudge confusing as it was harder to remember everyone without seeing their face. But it was enjoyable and interesting. It is not my favourite crime novel but I liked it.

2.0 out of 5 stars You don't bring me flowers 5 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Katelynn Crenshaw comes home early from work and finds her boyfriend and soon husband to be busily mutilating the body of a woman in their basement. Now having doubts about the upcoming wedding, she calls the police but her now ex-boyfriend, one Michael O'Rourke, escapes. It turns out this isn't the first time O'Rourke, now dubbed the Valentine Killer on account of him leaving red roses at the scene, has committed this particular crime. Thinking Crenshaw to be the next target, the police give her a new identity and she moves to New Orleans. Three years later however, her ex has found out her whereabouts and has started killing again.

The usual format in serial killer books then, but this is in the Montlake romance series, something of which I was unaware until it turned up. (Yes, I know I should have read the product details.) Not usually something I would read (Montlake that is), this did turn out to be no better than I imagined. Once I dismissed the romantic interludes between the now Katherine Cole and detective Dane Black, what was underneath was a run-of-the-mill crime/thriller involving a psycho continually referred to as Valentine, even though the FBI and local police know his name and what he looks like. Equally annoying is Eden's recurring use of a phrase, "A muscle jerked in his jaw". Along with repeating the expression, "I don't want any one else to die" ad nauseam, and plenty of single word sentences, it makes me wonder whether she had a word count to fulfil.

But what really grates is the portrayal of the New Orleans cops who come across as completely incompetent. Two are sent to keep an eye on Katherine, who enters her art studio on the main road. The lights don't go on so both uniforms go round the back of the building to see what's wrong. Sorry, but no.
