After being abused and assaulted by a Dom she was supposed to trust, Heather Gilpatrick decides while in the hospital that she will probably never have another loving D/s relationship like she had with her now dead husband.  Coming face to face with the attractive and surprisingly sexy detective investigating her assault, Heather instantly realizes that the man questioning her is a Dom and from the look of things, he knows she is a submissive.  Although he gives her his card, Heather doesn’t think she will be calling him.  That is until the man who harmed her shows back up and wants revenge.

Paul Baxter, police detective and sexual Dom, realizes that Heather is a sub when he interviews her about her injuries.  When she assures him she doesn’t know who hurt her, he knows that there is probably no way she will ever willingly give up any information.  Handing her his card, that he knows she will probably never use, he tries to forget the hauntingly beautiful red haired widow with the enchanting Irish lilt to her voice.  That is, until the same woman wakes him up in the middle of the night scared out of her mind and begging him to help her.  With one phone call, Paul is hooked and finds himself unable to let Heather go.

Healing Heather is the fourth book of the Incognito series and the first non-menage.  The fact that it was not a ménage did not detract from the book one iota and in fact, I think that the authors were wise in doing this.  Heather was emotionally fragile and very scared.  She needed one man that she would be able to to lean on and that man was Paul Baxter.  Tough cop, demanding lover, delightful friend; he was that to Heather and more.  She completed him and his love for her made the storyline that more poignant and beautiful.  Even though Heather was frightened, I found her stubbornness and honesty a super addition to the plot.

Once again Madison Layle and Anna Leigh Keaton have come through and written a totally captivating novel with Healing Heather.  I have been hooked on this series since book one and the wait for each additional installment gets harder and harder to bear.  It goes without saying that Healing Heather is a keeper but let me joyfully recommend it as well. Write faster ladies!
