Named by the social worker who rescued her as a child, Eve Dallas is now a New York City cop who lives for the job.

While recovering from her latest case, Eve is sent to investigate the brutal execution of Sharon DeGlass. A high-class escort and senator’s granddaughter, Sharon has been shot three times with an illegal gun and left naked and posed on her own bed,

All the evidence points Eve towards Irish billionaire, Roarke. With an instant sexual attraction between them, Eve and Roarke must work together to find a sadistic killer – but can Eve really trust a man whose past is as damaged as her own?



This was by far my favourite book of the 2019!! I was recommended this by a fellow Bookstagrammer. I hadn’t read anything by Nora Roberts before, plus, I never thought Crime Novels appealed to me. I am so pleased I was wrong.

This book was epic! To start with there is a serial Killer on the loose and the evidence points to Roake, an Irish Billionaire. Eve Dallas the cop in charge believes he’s innocent, but if he hasn’t killed them… who did?

“I want to see you again.” He stopped, took her face in his hands. “I need to see you again.”
Her pulse jumped, as if it had nothing to do with the rest of her. “Roarke, what’s going on here?”
“Lieutenant.” He leaned forward, touched his lips to hers. “indications are we’re having a romance.”

I assumed this would be quite mild, given that Nora Roberts, prior to this novel only wrote Romance Novels… so yeah, I came to this novel with so many assumptions, I owe Nora Roberts an apology.

The fact that the novel is set about 60 years into the future only add to the fact that the talented Nora Roberts had to take conventional current criminal procedures, and bring them into another century and another time. It’s exceptional.

The plot kept me guessing right until the very end, plus the Romance felt as great as any full Romance novel.

This page-turning crime novel, romanced itself into my greatest read this year!!
