A darkly handsome New Orleans detective who insists he’s no hero is blindsided by his one-time lover, a sexy investigative TV reporter, who exposes his secret troubled past to the whole world...and nearly costs him his job. When the at-risk teens he mentors start turning up dead, his vow to protect the other kids hits a major snag...his only clue to finding the determined killer is held by the one woman he never wants to see again. Compelled to work together to solve the vicious murders before another child dies, their passion reluctantly reignites, and their mutual mistrust slowly turns to respect as she realizes there’s much more to being a hero than outward appearances, and his deeply wounded heart gradually opens to the possibility of love.

Police Detective Devereux Gautier knows he's no hero. He's seen too much and failed too many times. Now the homeless kids he mentors are dying and the only person who can help him find the killer is the one woman who dug up his past to destroy him. Dev knows he can’t solve the case alone, but how can he work with a woman he can’t trust, and one who’s so intelligent and sexy, he can’t ignore?

Journalist Reghan Connor knows there are no heroes, and she's out to prove it on the air for all of New Orleans. Her latest debunked hero is Detective Dev Gautier, who hates her for exposing his mistakes. Now Reghan has been given the key to the murders of Dev's homeless teens, but how can she convince him she's not setting him up for another fall? As they work together to solve the murders, Reghan learns that being a hero is complicated and loving a hero can be downright deadly.

My Review:

I love stories that are set in New Orleans. The atmosphere of that one of a kind city provides just the right touch of magic and mystery no matter the genre. Mallory Kane does a wonderful job with this suspense tale full of twists and turns as Detective Dev Gautier is on the hunt for the murderer of homeless teens who he knows and mentors personally. Reghan is a reporter on the scent of a story and she has more than butted heads with Dev before. At first, you won't like Reghan very much. She is whats wrong with with modern journalism, reporting on things that are black and white but never seeing the gray areas, or the damage it can do. The killer leaves clues that force Reghan and Dev to join forces as they must hurry and find him before more kids are killed. Dev and Reghan have a hard time fighting the attraction between them, but they make a good team and each learns things that help them grow closer in spite of their past meeting. Ms Kane does a great job here with this story and I am looking forward to her next.
