Fate has thrown two sworn enemies…
Of all the hotel rooms rented by all the adulterous politicians in Chicago, female Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde had to choose the one next to 1308, where some hot-and-heavy lovemaking ends with a death. And of all the FBI agents in Illinois, it had to be Special Agent Jack Pallas who gets assigned to this high-profile homicide. The same Jack Pallas who still blames Cameron for a botched crackdown three years ago – and for nearly ruining his career…
…into each other’s arms
Work with Cameron Lynde? Are they kidding? Maybe, Jack thinks, this is some kind of welcome-back prank after his stint away from Chicago. But it’s no joke; the pair is going to have to put their rocky past behind them and focus on the case at hand. That is, if they can cut back on the razor-sharp jibes – and smother the flame of their sizzling-hot sexual tension.

Another excellent romance from Julie James
This is another great contemporary romance that I couldn’t put down from start to finish. I loved the sassy, intelligent characters and the great chemistry between our couple. Cameron was a strong woman but far from a stereotype and someone I admired, rooted for and wanted to be! Jack was the perfect foil for Cameron as well as being a first class hero. Glowering, broody and a man’s man – he is the kind of guy any woman would wish for.
The story was interesting, exciting and didn’t rely on the obvious conflicts or dramas to move the story on. While involving a little bit of suspense over the killer, the book wasn’t in the least bit scary and I’m a complete wuss when it comes to things like this! This is definitely the kind of story that you just have to keep reading and that you really invest in both the characters and the book as a whole.
Julie James is truly becoming one of my favourite contemporary authors. Her characters are smart and witty with great chemistry and banter and the story has the right balance of romance and action/suspense. Furthermore she always leaves me wanting more and with that happy glow when I’m finished a book. Now a definite auto buy for me, I’d recommend this book – ar anything Julie James has written – for everyone especially fans of Susan Andersen. 5 stars.
