While paying her traffic ticket fine, Jaclyn Wilde loses her balance and falls into the arms Hopewell, Georgia Police detective Eric Wilder. She likes what she sees (and feels), but has no time for an encounter because as an event planner for Premier, which she co-owns with her mom, they host six weddings in five days.

At the end of a brutal day made worse by Carrie "Bridezilla" Edwards, Jaclyn stops off for a drink. Also at the same bar is Eric. The exchange business cards so they can hook up in a week, but lust gets the better of them and they spend a night making love.

Carrie fires Jaclyn and slaps her former planner in the face in front of many witnesses. A few hours later, Carrie is found murdered with the weapon being kabob skewers. Eric leads the investigation and as such must treat Jaclyn as a stranger being that she is a prime suspect; although he is positive she is not the killer. He plans to find the killer, keep Jaclyn safe from someone who wants her dead, and somehow regain her trust lost by doing his job.

The quality of Linda Howard's romantic suspense novels remains consistently high as affirmed by Veil of Night. The tale is filled with tense intrigue, a strong police procedural investigation, a memorable cast, plenty of humor and a powerful lead couple - the cop and the suspect who go from lust to distrust as Eric performs his job. This is a must read.

I love old school Linda Howard. I mean LOVE. I own them all. This one (as well as the next to last Burn) are not joining my keeper shelf. It was just meh. Sort of a blend of the funny To Die For books w/ Blair, but not as funny, with some of her suspense style. The whodunit part was also pretty flat and reminded me plot-wise of her Blair books too. I guess when you have written this many books plot lines sometimes get reused. I advise getting it from the library or waiting to borrow a friend's copy or just re-read To Die For which was hysterical and original Linda Howard!

    What Has Happened to Linda Howard?

    I was eagerly awaiting this book because the synopsis sounded more like the Linda Howard I had been reading for years. She had starting writing dark stories that I found unappealing. So I was so hoping for a great read. Unfortunately it was a huge disappointment! The characters were so shallow that I could have cared less about them and the story was thin. Please, Linda, go back to writing the funny and sexy great reads that most Linda Howard fans adore!

    Expensive?

    Why is this ebook so expensive? I understand that only the hardcover edition is out right now, but other ebook stores have it for $10. We don't even get to use our Barnes and Noble membership discounts for ebooks...

    WORST BOOK EVER- this does not deserve a rating.

    To whom do I make a request to get a refund? Linda Howard should be ASHAMED of herself for writing this farce "an empty and patently ridiculous story" and calls it a novel. I've read her earlier books and have been entertained by them; to name a few Dream Man,Mr. Perfect, Dying to Please; Cry no more, is to me the last interesting book supposedly written by her. In the last five years the books with her name as author has been UTTER RUBBISH. I believe Linda Howard has lost her MOJO...or is someone else writting for her....

    Very disappointing

    I did not like this book. (Sorry Linda, I am a fan of yours but this was blah.) My recommendations for Linda Howard books:

    Death Angel
    Kill and Tell
    Mr. Perfect

    And my all time favorite: All the Queen's Men

    I don't recommend this one

    I have read some of her other books and this one is not up to her usual caliber. it was actually kind of harequinny...and that is an insult as far I am concerned. it sounded like it would be a good read, but it just wasn't worth the time. not a very good mystery or love story either.

    Do not waste your Time!

    I LOVE Linda Howard books but this is by far the absolute worst book I have ever Read! I can never get those hours of my life Back! Very disappointing. Not worthy of even one star.
