Nowhere to Hide

Leslie A. Kelly. Forever, $7.99 mass market (368p) ISBN 978-1-5387-3513-8

Kelly follows I’ll Be Watching You with this sexy, suspenseful second Hollywood Heat romance (originally self-published as Wanting You). True crime writer Evie Fleming is researching her new book on Hollywood murders when she’s assaulted on the way to her car. LAPD detective Rowan Winchester happens to be passing by and stops the attacker. The attraction between Evie and Rowan is immediate and intense, until Rowan learns that Evie plans to include information about his own family’s seedy history in her book. Rowan’s sister was a rising Hollywood star, but she died in an apparent suicide at 18 years old. The Winchester brothers blamed her talent agent, Harry Baker, who was murdered shortly thereafter. Rowan is determined to keep Evie’s nose out of family business, but he’s just as intent on keeping her safe, especially when Evie’s research puts her on the trail of a serial killer. When someone breaks in to Evie’s house, Rowan convinces her to stay with him for protection and their sexual attraction ignites into passion. Kelly again peels back the glitz and glamour of L.A. to reveal the city’s dark side in this thrilling, twisty romance. Readers won’t be disappointed. Agent: Annelise Robey, Jane Rotrosen Agency.
