What The Blurb Says :
Katherine Chastain has been running from her past for ten very long years. She is a woman who has been hiding from the nightmare that stalks her. Desperate and sick of jumping at every shadow, she stumbles into the small town Police Department in yet another town where she lives – desperate for help. Desperate to know that she isn’t insane like everyone seems to believe.
She wasn’t prepared for the force of nature that answers her call.
Detective Cole McKenzie was the playboy of the precinct. With movie star good looks and a body just made for sin; he never had a cold bed – but when Katherine walks into his office in search of salvation, he is nearly knocked to his knees.
There is something about her that he just can’t shake. Her haunted emerald eyes burn him to his very soul, and he finds that he wants nothing more than to help her stop the nightmare that has become her life.
Can Cole protect her from someone who is like a phantom? Someone who has been stalking and terrorizing her for most of her life? Can he fight the desire that wells up inside him with just a simple look from this amazing woman? Or will she be his end?
Can these two fight the attraction that snaps and crackles around them as danger lurks in the shadows?
Take a breath and join this thrilling ride!

I was gifted a copy of this book direct from the author, for no other reason than she is rather awesome! And that in no way reflects on my review and rating.
Katherine has been running for 10 years, adn HE has found her again. But she is tired of running, and she just wants someone to believe her. Detective Cole is floored by the lady who says she is beingstalked. There is no proof, no evidence, nonothing. But Katherine does more than push his professional buttons, she slams his personla ones too. And Cole very quickly becomes embroiled in a game of cat and mouse that may well cost Katherine her life.
LOVE LOVE LOVED THIS!!
Darlene has excelled herself. Switching from paranormal to crime/thriller can't be easy. There is much less to mess around with, to bend and make up as you go along but Darlene pulls it off beautifully!
You are kept on your toes the whole way through, not totally sure that Katherine is actually being stlaked til HE visits the first time. Not totally sure who HE is, although I had a inkling early on, I just didn't connect the dots quick enough.
Told in the third person, from Katherine and Cole's POV, we also get some of HIM, the stalker, the baddie, the whodunnit. And I loved that! Not enough, though, for my liking. But thats just me, I always want more!
Hot and steamy, deep and emotional, dark and deadly, we get a little bit of everyhing, extremely well written, executed beautifully, and it leaves me wanting more of this type of book from Darlene. Not that she should stop the paranormal series, cos I want that too! Like I said, I always want more.
5 full and shiny stars
**same worded review appears on Goodreas, Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk**
I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.
This book tells the tale of Katherine (Katie) and how she's been stalked from a very young age. She has lived through things already that no one should have to deal with. She's paid the price though, she has ran from place to place, never settling down, never having friends.
This is an intriguing story that will keep you guessing as to 'whodunnit', whilst enjoying the romance that runs through.
To explain why I've only given this 4-stars, instead of the usual 5 that everyone else seems to be giving, it's because, for me, everything was just too... easy. I mean, I know she's had it tough and that side of the story I thought was absolutely fantastic. Once she meets Cole though, that for me was the too easy. It was too easy that... he believed her, that they fell into bed (although that was hot!), that they proclaimed their love etc. Now I do realise that extreme circumstances can bring forth strong emotions but, yeah, for me, that part of it didn't work. THEY didn't have to work, they just fell into it and worked on finding the stalker.
On the whole though, thoroughly enjoyable and another winner from Darlene!
