Overview


Her moment of glory

Austin police detective Delilah Butler was only fifteen when a crazed drifter held her and her mother at gunpoint. During those dark hours twelve years ago, she survived by clinging to the comfort of the hostage negotiator's voice. Delilah never met FBI agent Jesse Montalvo…until now. On the merits of hard work and talent, she's been assigned to hunt down a serial killer, and Jesse is the agent in charge of the case.

His worst nightmare

Because Delilah was injured and her mother killed before her eyes that terrifying night, Jesse has never forgiven himself for not protecting Delilah more. He still wants to protect her—and that doesn't mean sending her undercover to lure a murderer. In a cruel irony, Delilah becomes a hostage again. Only, now the stakes are higher for Jesse. Now he's negotiating to save the woman he loves.

    Nah

    ## I didn't care for this book as a whole. I don't understand the 5 star ratings. Okay, so the crime drama element was good, although I knew pretty quickly who the unsub was. And I did like the heroine. She was the sole reason I bumped this book up to 2 stars. I love when authors give us strong, capable heroines. No whiny, needy woman in this story. But the hero was such an ass, I can't imagine her falling for him. Also, they didn't have any chemistry so there was no sexual tension which I find an important ingredient in any form of a romance. And to top it off, there was no "I love you" from the guy in the end? What gives?

    Most Wanted Summer Read

    The Sphinx. Rock-steady and rock-silent, Jesse Montalvo sees little purpose in idle chitchat. As an FBI hostage negotiator, Jesse defuses emergency situations, buying time and saving lives when he can, but has few words for the rest of the world. His nickname is well-deserved¿he is as silent as the Sphinx, as protective of secrets and of loved ones. Successful and driven, Jesse has come home¿or closer to home¿to get away from some of the nastiness of his job, and would rather not have come to Austin on the heels of a serial killer. Someone, though, is snatching young college women from Austin¿s famous 6th street, and they are turning up dead, one by one, in an excruciating campaign of terror that he must end. The Voice. Detective Delilah Butler couldn¿t be more excited¿the leader of VICTAF, an elite, multi-organization task force, has asked for her assistance in hunting down a serial killer. Ambitious, confident, and capable, Delilah looks forward to a break from her undercover work for the Sex Crimes Unit of the Austin Police Department. Then she hears ¿The Voice¿. Twelve years ago, when she was fifteen, The Voice talked her through the nightmare of a hostage situation. Through the agony and helplessness of holding her own dying mother in her arms, and knowing that sanity was just the sound of that voice helping her hang on. She never met the man behind the voice¿until she hears that voice again just outside her new squad room. The voice belongs to Agent Jesse Montalvo¿the man who couldn¿t bear to meet her when she was a devastated teenager, and who now must offer her as bait to another madman. This is, theoretically, a sad book¿sad in that it brings to a close Jean Brashear¿s ¿Deep in the Heart¿ series, and series fans, like me, will hate that worse than losing Friends or Frasier or just about anything else that came in multiples. Brashear has an uncanny knack for taking characters we think we know, and surprising us by giving them dimensions we didn¿t expect, but that make perfect sense¿and that add to the emotional impact of each of her stories. She accomplishes this task once again in a book touched with irony, humor, and a feeling of right-from-the-news immediacy that wraps the reader up in the story. And although Jesse and Delilah tie up the series perfectly, Brashear will release a single title, Mercy, in the not-too-distant future. With luck, that one book will become two. Or three¿ Meanwhile, pre-order Most Wanted now. You won¿t want to wait a minute longer than you have to for this one.

    Super romance

    In Austin, FBI Hostage Negotiator Jesse Montalvo tries to keep fifteen year old Delilah Butler and her mother from becoming victims during a hostage standoff. Only his voice keeps the teen from cracking. However, the local SWAT Commander refuses to wait and storms the facility. Delilah survives but her mother dies. Jesse slinks out of town feeling like a failure while Delilah knows the Voice of her hero who saved her life.......................... Twelve years later, the Violent Crimes Task Force requests Jesse lead a team trying to stop a serial killer who abducts young women. Delilah, now a detective, is on the team. As they work together both feel a bit shy to discuss what happened that connected them a dozen years ago as he feels guilt and she feels hero worship. Soon their divergent feelings converge into love, but the killer has Delilah in his eyesight but this time Jesse plans to not fail her............................. Though exciting and well written, the police procedural subplot takes a back seat to the ¿Deep in the Heart¿ love story between two people connected by a tragic event in which they interpret the outcome quite differently. The story line is fast-paced as the duo struggle to stop the serial killer with Delilah becoming the bait over the objection of Jesse. Fans will appreciate this wonderful romance in which the hero has many doubts including does she love the statue on the pedestal hero she has painted of him or the bleeding hurting real flesh?..........................

    An excellent romantic suspense

    I love this book! Brashear brings out the conflicts and complications between the hero and heroine to perfection. Jesse is an amazingly attractive hero--at once strong as steel and yet utterly sensitive, sharply intelligent and yet misguided in certain of his deepest convictions. Delilah is wonderful, too, with her strength and intelligence so similar to Jesse's and her true heart and spirit that help him learn to love and let go of guilt. Brashear's gorgeous, lyrical writing is as at home in this weighty, fast-paced thriller as it is in her more heartwarming contemporary romances. Brashear is a wonderful writer, and reading ¿Most Wanted,¿ I found myself pulled between wanting to read ahead in order to know what happens next and wanting to read slowly in order to savor the individual sentences and images. I can't wait for the next Deep In The Heart!
