"an intense read"

As far as nightmares go, Victoria Banks has the worst of them all. She has recurring vivid dreams of a duo of serial killers who stalk and then brutally kill their victims. They are on a relentless pursuit of their angel, Miss Tori. A co-worker convinced Tori to speak to the police, to find out once and for all if the dreams are real, or just realistic. Guy Breauchard is the cop that takes her initial statement, and viciously laughs and mocks her words. He acted both unprofessionally, and outright rude, sending Tori out in tears feeling more alone and on edge.

Through the not so gentle nudging of those around them, Guy realizes that Tori wasn't trying to get fifteen minutes of fame, but that she was really seeing serial killers in her sleep. An investigation begins and Guy moves in with Tori for her protection. Tori and Guy go through a wide array of experiences that any new relationship can expect, without the benefit of time away from each other. Guy puts his professional reputation on the line by falling in love with the woman he's protecting. Tori feels that the attraction she feels for Guy is temporary due to the intense nature of their relationship, that it's nothing more than hero worship.

Barbara Huffert's Linked breaks the mold by balancing love, violence and mind blowing sex. The serial killers acts will not soon be forgotten due to their extreme depraved indifference to human life. The love scenes between Tori and Guy are explosive, and filled with intense passion. The lives of the secondary characters blend well creating an environment that enables Tori and Guy's love to bloom in the face of many obstacles.

Linked takes you on an adventure and is not for the meek. With vivid and detailed sex that embraces all five senses, Barbara Huffert is sure to leave any reader breathless. Her hero is strong willed and risks everything for the one that he loves. Her heroine is a tortured soul who is afraid to put her heart out there. It is through their weaknesses that they find strength.
