Wow, Wow and Wow!!! 24 Aug. 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I normally don't rate a book with 5 stars, but what more can I say, this book was beyond good, it was excellent. Not to much sex but the right amount, and not too much suspense, but the right amount to keep you on the edge of your seat. Sable and J.D. having sex on a parade float, now that's a new one on me. How they got away with that, I don't know. My favorite character has to be Terri, her no-nonsense-attitude and tough-cop-demeanor, along with her humor, had me laughing until I cried. Especially during her love scene with Cort, "You want me to stop?" Pulling her spare gun out of the nightstand drawer and pointing at his face. "You want to die?" That part in particular had me in the floor laughing. For a book that was only 291 pages it sure did pack a huge romantic-suspense punch. I can't wait for Cort and Terri's story to be released.

An Amazing Addition To the Romantic Suspense Genre!!! 25 Dec. 2004
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Hall has penned an amazingly engrossing read that fans of romantic suspense won't want to miss. The storyline is amazing combining not only a great mystery that transcends a decade, but also has great characters that readers will relate too and care about. The ending (without giving any thing away) truly surprised me and I'm an avid fan of this sub-genre and normally pretty good about "guessing" who the baddie is.

Lt. J.D. Gamble has had his past catch up with him in the most unlikely of locations. A burned out building with only one survivor. Sable Duchensne was his first and only love and she is currently getting looked over by the EMT when he shows up. She is the only witness to a murder and arson investigation. He has to put his own personal feelings on ice but it won't be easy. Than again nothing with Sable ever was.

Sable has a secret. She's from the bayou and when she was in college she thought to step ahead of her station in life and love Jean Delano Gamble. After a very bad incident she runs back home and away from her hearts desire. Ten years later their paths cross and the one person to keep her safe is the one person she can't trust with her heart. Or can she. While on the run hiding from a person that wants her dead, she and D.J. come to realize that the still love each other very much and that they are not going to make the same mistake they made earlier.

This was a very fast paced read set in sultry Louisiana. Plot, characters, and chemistry move the story along and will firmly engage the reader until the final pages. If you are a fan of the romantic suspense genre Ms. Hall is an author that you need add to your "must read" list.

VERY HOT VERY GOOD BOOK!!!!!! 16 May 2004
By Elaine C McTyer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my first Jessica Hall book. It was very good and I will be on the lookout for her next one.
Sable and J.D. had been lovers at college, but no one wanted them together, She is Cajun and He is Creole. Big deal you say!
Well it seems to be to his high class family and friends. (Personally, I think his mother got away with murder. They forgave her to easily.)
Anyway, ten years later he finds her at the center of the murder of a governatorial candidate. He gives up everything to protect her, she is the only witness.
This could have been just another same old same thing. However, it is not, no cliches here. The author took an old plot and made it new. I liked it alot.
I especially like novels set in New Orleans. I don't want to give any secrets away. But this book is one hot, thrilling, ride. Another one to read in one sitting.

Second chance for love ignites more than passion 15 May 2006
By Tracy Vest - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Social worker Isabel "Sable" Duchesne meets a wealthy businessman at one of his vacant buildings that he has agreed to loan her for her community project. When she arrives to find him dead, she herself is hit over the head and left for dead. New Orleans police detective JD Gamble arrives on scene with his partner Terri as Sable is being checked by the paramedics, when he realizes that she is the college lover that left him and forever changed his life.

The two are still in love with each other, but neither is willing to admit it to the other. Still standing between them is what prompted her to "attack" his friends after a college prank at her expense, the full details which he never knew about. When it looks like the arsonist who left her for dead is still trying to kill her, JD goes into protection mode and takes her into hiding. As his partner Terri works the case with his hotheaded fire marshal brother Cort, the two engage in a torrid one night stand, while Sable and JD re-ignite their own passion finally admitting their love for each other.

Hall does a tremendous job weaving an intricate mystery. We know who the arsonist is right off the bat, but the shadowy character in the background pulling the strings is a real surprise. The aftermath of Cort and Terri's notorious one night stand takes center stage in Hall's follow up, "Heat of the Moment."

Very Good! 11 Feb. 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This story was action packed and full of likable characters. My only complaint is that through a lack of conversations between the leads, I never got a true indication of their current feelings for each other.

Through a past misunderstanding, they were both angry with one another but still very much attracted to each other. And it's mentioned several times how much they loved each other before, but I guess I wanted more. It's as if it's just a given that their getting back together so let's get on with the story. Where was the heart to heart? I wasn't so much annoyed by this that it ruined the book for me, thus the 4 stars.
