Workaholic Ross Kennedy never learned to enjoy life until he meets the woman of his dreams. If only Laurie Miller can convince him that's exactly who she is.A psychologist with empathic abilities, Laurie rescues Ross, who has been stranded in the middle of a Montana blizzard. The two strangers are completely snowed in and out of contact. In just a few days, their attraction to each other is overwhelming, but Laurie is troubled. Her empathic gift seems to have vanished. Fascinated by his pretty rescuer, Ross struggles to open up his heart enough to let this woman in. When the two return home to Chicago, they try to solve a mystery revolving around a Prohibition Era journal they discovered in Montana. Will they find the missing treasure the journal points to? And as a former boyfriend begins to stalk Laurie, how will Ross be able to protect her? ** "Ross Kennedy begged me to write this book. The attorney was 'left behind' in Murphy's Law when Katie chose Seth, the man she was meant to love. But how could I let Ross be all alone? And for a hero like Ross, I needed a heroine just as special - a woman like Laurie Miller who would not only compliment him, but complete him." ~Sandy~ ** Romance Writers of America's 2007 Golden Acorn Excellence in Writing Finalist

5 HEARTS: "Ms. James has penned another fantastic story within these pages. This was the second book in the Damaged Heroes series and it was just as entertaining as the first book. I loved how the author weaved her twist and turns throughout the storyline and she had me completely engrossed right until the very last page. I highly recommend this story and I urge you to pick up the series because you won't be disappointed with this author's writing style. She's very talented and will definitely keep you entertained for a few hours while reading her work. I'm happy to tell you that the third book in this series, All the Right Reasons, has just been released also. Each book is a stand-alone story, but they're well worth reading in order." -- Diana Coyle, Night Owl Romance 4.75 RATING: "Heads up romance lovers, because I've got a good one for you. This novel combines romance, suspense, and just a dash of paranormal into a very readable and enjoyable package, and I think it will please the most discerning of readers. I certainly enjoyed it. One of the most outstanding attributes about Free Falling is its characters. Ms. James has developed a wonderful cast and has breathed enough life into them to make them almost jump off the page. They are well-rounded and developed fully enough to make them distinct and memorable, and they give the plot additional depth. I found Free Falling to be a very pleasant surprise." -- B.D. Whitney, BookWenches
Very enjoyable. This story carries over some of the characters from Murphy's Law. That story and this are both stand-alone although reading them in order does enhance the over all understanding significantly. The addition of a hint of paranormal was a good twist as was the journal. I liked both. Just from my own point of view, it would have been nice if Ross were more interested in the journal overall. It seemed odd that he wasn't more interested.
