When telepath meets ex-cop, will it be death or diamonds.

Writer Liv Corrigan has the worst luck with men -- her telepathy tends to make them run for the hills. When she meets widower and ex-cop Jack Roarke, she decides to keep her talent hidden. Things are looking up until their third date crashes and burns as the man who murdered Jack’s wife turns out to be after him too.

Injured, Jack retreats with Liv to his house under armed guard. But with Liv’s mysteries rapidly coming unraveled, a diamond-thief killer to stop and passion in the air, the safe house is anything but safe for their hearts!

Drop your heroine into the middle of a mystery engulfing her brother and what do you get? A disposable asset. Introduce a disenchanted ex-cop and what happens next? To find out, you’ll have to read this fast-paced and action-packed story. And if you add a little magic, the gloves come off.

The story opens with the hero, ex-cop and author, Jack, and his back history, which has me wondering why the author revealed so much information up front. But like all the other twists in this story, the author led me to obvious and erroneous conclusions that were slowly rectified as the story progressed.

When I discovered Ryan Corrigan’s invitation to his sister, Liv, put her life in danger, I was royally peeved with him. But with consummate skill and more twists, the author convinced me that Ryan was not the selfish guy I thought him.

Put the two writers of mystery novels together, Liv and Jack, and give them a plot that puts them in the centre of the action and you will not put the book down until you’ve turned the last page. This was a thoroughly enchanting story.
