Overview

Too Close For Comfort. . .

Deana Armstrong needs a hero—not for herself, but for the nephew all her money and time can't seem to get out of jail. Unfortunately, the best hero in all the Hawaiian Islands is set on turning in his badge and getting his excellent butt into another line of work. If that wasn't enough, Josh Windsor also has a big-time grudge against Deana herself. But if there's anything being rich, smart, and stubborn has taught Deana, it's never to settle for second best. . .

Josh has had it with saving people. He's had it with getting hauled into court. And boy, has he ever had it with Deana. Or well, he hasn't had it. Yet. But the more she pops up sounding infuriating and looking good enough to eat, the more her hot bod and her cold case wriggle into his mind. And there's only so much even a hero can resist. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Dimon (It’s Hotter in Hawaii) brings back one of her hunkiest heroes, DEA agent Josh Windsor, with tepid results. Retiring to avoid being let go from the DEA, Josh turns freelance investigator for Deana Armstrong, a wealthy Hawaiian heiress convinced that her 16-year-old nephew has been wrongly convicted of beating his parents to death with a baseball bat. Put off at first by Deana’s ice queen demeanor, Josh quickly melts in the heat of their mutual attraction, but the more he digs, the more he believes that the young convict is guilty. Fans will be happy to see the return of Josh’s best friend, Kauai police chief Kane Travers, but the thin murder plot doesn’t amount to much more than a vehicle for the predictable romantic developments. (Oct.)
