Since Jeremiah Cortez broke her heart, Phoebe Keller has devoted herself to her career. As an expert in Native American culture, she has her doubts when an anthropologist claims to have discovered priceless artifacts on a nearby reservation. But before Phoebe can pursue the matter, the professor in question turns up dead — and the FBI sends Cortez to investigate. Cortez thought he'd left the past behind him — especially his history with Phoebe. Once, she'd sparked his world-weary soul…but he'd had to walk away. Now, seeing the blonde beauty digs up feelings he'd thought buried for good. But he must keep his emotions in check — he has secrets…and one of them revolves around a child with eyes as dark as his own. As they find themselves entangled in a world of conspiracy and deception, they'll discover something more powerful than anything they've ever known — love.

BookLender review by Carolyn on 2008-11-06 19:17:35

Romantic suspense is a tough genre in popular fiction. Most aithors have a hard time trying to balance a good suspense tale with realistic characters and relationships and most fall short. I feel Diana Palmer's book was very strong on suspense with a gripping mystery surrounding Native American artifacts but it falls far short in the romance department. I think part of the problem were the female characters were portrayed as silly, delusional, jealous stereotypes. Phoebe particularly irritated me with her unrealistic view of her relatioship with Cortez. His cousin wasn't too much better, leaping to conclusions that weren't there. If that was supposed to create dramatic tension, I would have preferred Palmer not go that route in her plot and stuck to the good story with the mystery. The book did not inspire me to read any mroe by her.
