Explosive Attraction-Lena Diaz

Explosive Attraction

Lena Diaz

Harlequin Intrigue, Apr 23 2013, $5.50

ISBN: 9780373696895

St. Augustine police detective and bomb technician Rafe Morgan obsesses over keeping the city streets safe; especially since his wife Shelby died during a home invasion. Shelby’s brother Jake, also a bomb technician cop, blames his former brother-in-law for failing to protect his late sister.

Rafe and psychologist Dr. Darby Steele often argue in court as she obsesses over helping troubled people obtain a second chance like she received. However, he arrives when she calls the police to report a threat. A serial bomber has obsessed on Darby. Rafe, with help from his DEA agent brother Nick, vows to keep her safe; as fighting between them turns to love.

Explosive Attraction is a fabulous romantic police procedural as courtroom enemy combatants fall in love while on the run. Rafe feels guilt which Jake constantly reminds him; while Darby is the phobia poster person. Readers will relish this taut suspense and demand Lena Diaz (see The Marshal’s Witness) provides tales starring Jake and Nick.
