This next romance in the Coltons of Texas series turns up the heat as a cowboy falls for the beautiful cop investigating his sister!

Hailing from a family full of law enforcement officials, rookie cop Annabel Colton expects to be treated like the dedicated officer she is. But her overprotective brothers want her off the dangerous case of the serial killer stalking their tiny Texas town. Her determination lands her a stakeout mission at the farm of the prime suspect's brother. Cowboy Jesse Willard--too handsome, too challenging, too sexy--claims he's not helping his estranged sister evade capture. But as Annabel gets closer and closer to the irresistible rancher, bullets start flying. And their lives--and hearts--will depend on the two of them working together.

This book is one ridiculous mess, practically from beginning to end. Annabel Colton keeps stating that she can handle herself. As a rookie cop, she has a lot to prove, even after graduating with high marks from the police academy. But it’s just one screw-up after another with her. She keeps having men coming to her rescue and actually is idiotic enough to sleep with a person of interest in a high-profile case. Then she stays away from him. Then she sleeps with him again. Argggh! This is supposed to be a sign of true love on her part—and maybe his too—but it just keeps coming off as a case of gonads gone wild.

I don’t truly believe in the love between these two; it comes off more as the assuaging of loneliness and neediness on the part of two heavily emotionally damaged people. These are two people who should be staying far away from each other but we’re supposed to think that their mutual affections are inevitable.

The whole business is tangled up with an uncatchable female serial killer and an incarcerated male serial killer, Annabel’s father. He’s clearly a sociopath that’s toying with his family but they insist on crawling to him while he dangles clues in front of them about the body of their dead mother, which he hid after he murdered her. It’s pointless to talk to him but they keep on trying.

The book ends without the serial killer getting caught, their long-lost sister Josie being found or the corpse being located. Only Annabel’s on-again-off-again relations with Jesse Willard are satisfactorily concluded. It’s just frustrating as hell. Let someone else go digging after the exquisite corpse. I can’t be bothered.
