He sees Kylie dancing and is instantly attracted to her. He thinks there's a connection to Stacy. It's her clients that are ending up dead.
Honestly, I love romantic suspense. Love, love , love it. I would actually say it's probably my favorite romance genre to read. Love story and mystery together? Color me giddy as hell. This story had a lot of romantic suspense requirements: Good main couple, good secondary couple, decent mystery, secret identity and an HEA. But the love scenes, UGH! They started off almost off page and I thought, Um Hello! The author had me up until then. She has a good voice but after the fizzled love scenes, I just wanted to finish the book and be done.
