"Dynamite romantic suspense"
The trip to Mexico was a disaster for radio
psychologist Dr. Samantha Leeds. She manages to return to
her home in Cambrai on the shore of Lake Pontchartain near
New Orleans with a leg in a cast and the end of her
relationship with David Ross. However, her answering
machine has more than the welcome home from her dad. It
also contains a message about paying for her sins and than
there is the envelope with the 'repent' note inside it.
At about the same time, someone begins torturing and
murdering prostitutes while simultaneously listening to Dr.
Sam's New Orleans radio show. When Sam limps back to work,
threatening calls start coming in to her show. Police
Detective Rick Bentz realizes that Sam is the only lead to
the killer, but is not sure of the connection. Neither is
Sam. Meanwhile Sam meets Ty Wheeler and begins to fall in
love with him, but wonders if she can trust him or will he
turn out to be her latest male mistake and even worse, her
HOT BLOODED is an exciting romantic suspense tale with
a strong emphasis on the suspense. The story line moves
forward rather quickly, as Lisa Jackson takes no
prisoners. Sam is a wonderful damsel in distress who
abhors that role. The killer is obsessed but clever even
fooling an intelligent detective like Rick Bentz. Sub-
genre fans and those who enjoy a taut police procedural-
thriller will delight in this novel and look forward to
next year's sequel COLD BLOODED that returns many of the
cast members from this tale.
