Shades of Desire

Title: Shades of Desire
Author: Virna DePaul
Publisher: Harlequin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pages: 384
On Sale: May 29, 2012

Natalie Jones is the lucky survivor of an elusive killer who preys on young women and then disappears from view. And since her harrowing ordeal, the once gutsy photojournalist has remained isolated in her home, paralyzed by fear and her failing vision.
Special Agent Liam "Mac" McKenzie has scars of his own. But despite his efforts to ignore the attraction that simmers between him and Natalie, he needs her help to catch a predator. Soon, they will forge a tentative alliance—charged with desire. Through a soft-focus lens, Natalie dares to envision a future with Mac beyond the investigation…never guessing that the clues hidden within her photographs are drawing them into an explosive confrontation with a madman.

My Take:

Natalie Jones feels trapped by her fear and losing her eyesight... I felt trapped on the treadmill with a book that held promise but, for me, didn't deliver in the end.  I'm not sure I can pinpoint where it went wrong, and there were things about the book that I liked but with so much more out there to read I'm going to have to mark this one as a do not recommend.

I received this book from Harlequin via NetGalley for reading and reviewing
