Deadly Desire, by Brenda Joyce

Deadly Desire by Brenda Joyce: Book CoverFinished 2-9-10, rating 4/5, romance, pub. 2002

Book 4 of the Deadly series (Book 1) (Book 2) (Book 3)

I’ve now been rereading this series for a month and I am having so much fun.  This is the book where it does begin to feel a bit soap opera-ish, but in a good way.  The mystery that sets the book in motion is dropped halfway through and not mentioned again until the last page.  Another mystery did present itself, as did a surprising declaration of marriage, and a beating that was never resolved.  Actually,there was a lot that was not resolved in this book, which is why it is a bit like a soap opera with a big cast of characters and a lot going on.  

Francesca’s relationship with Rick reaches a tipping point when she receives a note from his wife and her friendship with Calder heats up.  Rick is the good guy out to reform the New York police department and his half-brother Calder is the cad only out for himself…and Francesca.

There is no way to read this one without having read the others and get any enjoyment.  I think it would be too confusing.  That being said, I love this series, so if you like romances I recommend finding book one.

This came from my personal library.
