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
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!
