Overview

Jack Montgomery is out of his element. The former covert ops hero is now carving out a living as a P.I., specializing in missing persons. Except the trail's gone stone-cold on the Eckhardt kidnapping just as Jack hits sizzling New Orleans. To top it off, some psychic woman is making wild claims--and newspaper headlines--on his case, no less.

Perry Brazille knows her aunt can help Jack--Della has solved crimes before with her unexplained visions. Even Perry herself can glimpse the future, and she is afraid that she and the mysterious sexy Jack will be lovers...soon. What Perry can't see is the kind of future that can build on a hot and steamy fling. One that's set against a dangerous situation that's clearly unraveling...

Meet the Author

Alison Kent was a born reader, but it wasn't until the age of thirty that she decided she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. Five years and a mental library of industry knowledge later, she had the most basic grasp of "how-to" and her first book in print.

Three years after that, she found a permanent home at Harlequin, accepting an invitation issued by the senior editor of the Temptation series, live on the "Isn't It Romantic?" episode of CBS 48 Hours.

That book, Call Me, was a Romantic Times finalist for Best First Series Book in 1996.

With her first three Temptations in print, she took a break from writing romance novels and spent a few months living one, finding her own hero and practicing every technique she'd learned from a lifetime of reading the best "how-to" manuals around! She now writes for both the Harlequin Blaze and Kensington Brava lines, and is a partner in Access Romance and DreamForge Media.

And the rest, as they say, is history. With the encouragement of her new master, er, husband, Alison is now back at work writing the stories she loves to read -- the fantasies that show readers the way love was meant to be. Alison lives in a Houston, Texas, suburb with her hero, four vagabond kids and a dog named Smith.

And she actually manages to write in the midst of all that madness.

PI Jack Montgomery traveled from Texas to New Orleans following leads in his search for a kidnapped corporate executive. Those leads take him to the door of psychic, Della Brazille, touted in a newspaper article as being a consultant with police, namely Detective Book Franklin, in the search for the missing exec. Certain that she is a fraud, Jack intends to convince her to walk away from the case and then get on with his investigation. Jack has no intention of being sucked in by her act, and he certainly doesn¿t expect to be attracted to Della¿s niece, Perry, who is one of the most beautiful women he has ever seen. Perry is equally attracted to Jack and her heart aches for his painful past, but she is wary of letting her feelings run away after he has made it clear that he isn¿t interested in anything more than simple sex between them. Della¿s visions indicate increasing violence against the kidnapped man and it becomes obvious that they need to find him quickly, making Perry realize that her days remaining with Jack are limited, and making her fear that he won¿t share her feelings. Alison Kent wraps up the stories of five characters introduced in previous stories with GOES DOWN EASY. Jack and Perry are fiery together and Della and Book are charming secondary characters who are key to the story. The New Orleans setting is excellently written, as is the violence against the kidnapping victim. The light touches of woo-woo with Della¿s psychic abilities and a resident ghost, are wonderfully creative. Alison Kent¿s name on a book is a guarantee that it will be an excellent read, and GOES DOWN EASY is no exception.
