Product Description


When Ella Porter opens the mysterious letter, a mix of fear and desire spreads through her. As the pampered daughter of a prestigious southern family, she's always been the quiet, ladylike good girl, not the sort to inspire a stalker. The letters are a reminder of another time, a shocking secret, and of Reed Conway, the man her won father convicted of a brutal murder. But now, Reed is back in town. The shadows seem to move. And the ominous letters have begun again. Someone is watching Ella. Wanting her. Promising to do things to her: tempting things...terrifying things. Desperate to protect her family, Ella will do anything to discover the truth, even if it means joining forces with the one man who could be her greatest threat - a twisted killer watching every move she makes...

This is not up to her usual good standard, its fairly obvious who the "baddy" is from early on , the plot is thin and the characters lack any sort of substance even the hero is very two dimensional. sorry but its really not worth reading.

Did not expect this to be an erotic thriller! I have read several of her books and enjoyed the plot and the writing; this book has a thin plot (so obvious that you finish the book just to check you were right!) and I found the unexpected erotic passages bordering on vulgarity... Definitely not like the Beverley Barton that I have enjoyed reading before.

Bad boy parolee and judge make a hot duo 25 Oct. 2006
By Tracy Vest - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Wrongly convicted of murdering his step father, Reed's been released from prison after serving a 15 year sentence. Though he earned a college degree and nearly a master's, the only job he can get is as a mechanic at his cousin's garage. He is dedicated to finding the real culprit behind the murder, regardless of the cost. When judge Ella Porter, daughter of the DA that put Reed away starts receiving nasty letters similar to the ones Reed sent to her while in prison, she confronts him, not realizing that someone sinister will stop at nothing to make sure Reed is back in jail. Ella has always been drawn to Reed, and finds that the forbidden passion he promises is too much to resist. Reed doesn't count on actually falling for the daughter of his enemy, and soon she's joining him in his quest for the truth, much to her parent's displeasure (yes, she's 30 and still lives at home!).

Could it be Ella's father Webb Porter, now a senator with a roving eye and zipper, and a shared past with Reed's mother; could it be Judy, Reed's harried mother who suffered greatly at the hands of her sadistic husband; could it be Reed's sister Regina, whose near rape at the hands of her stepfather have cause irreparable damage; or could it be Ella's aunt and uncle who also share a sordid past with the deceased. With plenty of suspects, the two have their work cut out for them!

Ella and Reed make a striking duo. And boy does this couple sizzle! Barton's gothic tale of murder, forgiveness, and love has plenty to keep you entertained, though I felt there were far too many romantic entanglements for a single novel, causing some of them to not be as developed as they could have been.

Who is writing those nasty letters? 30 Jun. 2004
By janlouise - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Reed Conway was convicted 15 years ago for the murder of his abusive step-father. Out on parole, he has just arrived back in his hometown determined to find the real murderer. And, boy is everyone watching his every move! Including the murderer! Senator Web Porter, who was DA at the time of the murder and was instrumental in prosecuting Reed, has a daughter who is now judge- Ella Porter. Ella was attracted to Reed in school when Reed had the reputation of "bad boy/bad news." Reed noticed Ella but knew she was off limits due to her daddy. But now the table has changed - Reed and Ella are in their thirties, are mature adults able to think for themselves, and, boy, is the attraction strong. Too strong to resist! To complicate things - 15 years ago to get back at Porter, Reed wrote a couple of explicit sexual letters to Ella from prison. Well, now that Reed is back in town Ella has started receiving letters again - but Reed isn't writing them. The "suspect of murder" list grows in leaps and bounds - it turns out to be a "peyton place" southern town where everyone is involved with everyone's wife and is trying to cover something up. There is sizzling romance, secondary characters to keep it from getting dull, and suspence of "who did it." I enjoyed it, my first BB book to read and I will read more of her books. I thoroughly enjoyed Reed. Ella seemed whimpy a little. It was wierd her living with her parents at her age and holding a such an important position as Judge. Would I recommend it? Yes!

A good romantic suspense... 3 Sept. 2003
By cmiller - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Almost twenty years after he was convicted or murder, Reed Conway has been released and has sworn that he will find the person responsible for murdering his stepfather. The number one name on his list of suspects is the man that convicted him, Webb Porter. Esteemed senator and doting father, Webb seems like an unlikely suspect. The longer that he is out of prison, the more it looks like someone is determined to send him back. He finds an unexpected ally in Ella Porter, Webb's daughter, whom he feels more for than he ever expected.
Ella Porter can't decide if he's guilty or not. On one hand she is convinced that her father would never go after an innocent man. On the other hand the more time she spends with Reed, the more she doesn't think that he is capable of murder. Aside from the almost animal attraction for him, she tells Reed that she will help him prove his innocence.
Every Move She Makes is classic Barton. Although Ella was a little wimpy for me, always thinking 'run, Ella, run', I still enjoyed the plot as well as most of the characters.

A touch of suspense, a dose of mystery and a lot of romance 29 Jan. 2007
By Neilisa - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When Ella Porter was sixteen, her father, Webb Porter, a successful prosecutor at the time, put behind bars an eighteen year old who killed his stepfather. Once Reed Conway was sent to prison, and to infuriate Webb, Reed sent a couple of very sexual letters to Ella before Webb put a stop to his letter-writing privileges.

Fifteen years later, Reed Conway is finally leaving prison...for good behavior, and he's determined to discover the identity of the person who slit his stepfather's throat and left him to take the blame. At the same time, Ella, now a circuit court judge, has started receiving sexual letters again. Of course, it's obvious Reed is behind it. Right?

The killer is desperate to send Reed back to prison, so terrorizing Ella begins to escalate from mere letter writing to phone calls and eventually to murder.

I enjoyed the suspense of this one, including Ella and Reed's obvious attraction to each other. I love Beverly Barton's prose. She creates such memorable characters and such wonderful twisty plotlines. I was thoroughly entertained.

My reason for rating this book only four out of five is because this is not my favorite Barton book. I think her later works are much better.

Another sizzling murder mystery by Beverly Barton 25 Sept. 2001
By DiAnn Fields - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Every Move She Makes is another romantic murder mystery by Beverly Barton, the premiere author of "The Protectors" series.
Reed Conway has just been released from serving 15 years for the murder of his stepfather. Now that he is out, it is time to go back to his hometown to find the real killer. The years spent in prison have not been easy for Reed, but he is a survivor.
Ella Porter, the daughter of the man who sent Reed to prison, is a thirty year old judge. As a shy teenager, she had a crush on Reed, the star athlete who was also "a bad boy". Unknown to her, Reed was aware of her in high school, but did not attempt to date her.
Angered by his conviction, Reed sent Ella a few letters before he went to prison which frightened her when he described his desire for her. After Reed is released, more suggestive letters are sent to Ella - did Reed send them? Ella doesn't know what to think - does Reed want to hurt her or does he feel the electricity for her that she feels for him?
Besides Reed and Ella's relationship, there are secondary characters that make this a well-rounded and complete story. The question is who framed Reed and there are many suspects which makes the book exciting to the very last page.
If you have read another Beverly Barton book, Lone Wolf's Lady, the hero from that book, Luke, also was sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit and he and the heroine work together to solve the mystery. This book also has several "steamy" scenes.
