After a mission went horribly wrong, Risa Chandler turned in her gun and her resignation to her boss, Adam Raiker. Months after she has left Raiker’s team, she starts having dreams of horrendously vicious murders that include cops, a secret club, and fire.
Detective Nate McGuire is none too happy about having a “consultant” on his team even if she looks like a walking wet dream. He soon comes to realize that below her beautiful exterior, Risa has a steel core and an unerring nose for clues that no one else spots.
As Risa and Nate begin to unravel the mystery of who is killing cops, the murderer is playing his own deadly game. He now has Risa in his sights and while he thought she was not anyone special, there are certain details that no one but him should have known, but somehow she does. He will stop at nothing to complete his murders and if that means eliminating Risa along with the other members of the secret club, then he will. The danger of the crime, vividness of the dreams, and passion between Risa and Nate continue to escalate as they hunt down a man determined to murder those who harmed one of his loved ones so many years ago.
The mysterious air, strong characters, suspenseful theme, and hard-hitting intensity are key notes that I expect to see when reading a great mystery. Deadly Dreams contains all of these points and so much more. The element of romance between Risa and Nate continuously builds, and the tension crackles as they come closer and closer to consummating their passion. Kylie Brant has written a brilliant novel that had me in its grips and I could not put this book down. This is one of the best romantic suspense novels I have read this year!
