In The Wake Of A Tragedy She Can't Forget…

Twenty years ago, Jolie Royale witnessed a crime that stained her home, Belle Rose plantation, with her family's blood. A shooting left her mother, her aunt, and her aunt's suspected lover dead, and Jolie critically wounded. The case was ruled a double homicide and suicide and quickly closed, though rumors abounded as to the murderer's real identity...

The Face She Can't Remember…

Jolie would never forget that day—but she could never recall the killer's face. And now she is coming home. With mixed feelings she returns for her father's funeral, feelings that turn into dread when the investigation into the triple murder is reopened—and it becomes clear as day that a killer is still on the loose...

…May Be The Last One She Sees

Determined to put the past to rest, Jolie turns to Max Devereaux for help. Years ago, he made no secret of his resentment toward her family, but it seems many things have changed—including Jolie's feelings for her unlikely ally. Now, as she and Max work together to put back the lost pieces of her memories, the striking distance between her and the killer closes. Someone can't wait for Jolie to remember his face, because by then it will be too late...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Two mysteries and multiple romances dovetail nicely in this tightly woven romantic intrigue from popular Silhouette series author Barton (Every Move She Makes). When her father dies, Jolie Royale is summoned to Belle Rose, her family's estate in Mississippi, by her brother-in-law, Max Deveraux. Jolie hasn't been home in 23 years, not since she was shot and left for dead in what would later become known as the Belle Rose Massacre. Her mother and aunt were murdered that night, ostensibly by the family handyman, Lemar, who later committed suicide. Although some doubted Lemar's guilt, Jolie included, the county sheriff didn't hesitate to lay the blame on the dead man's shoulders and close the case. Upon her return, Jolie regains control of Belle Rose and joins forces with Theron Carter, Lemar's nephew, to reopen the case and air long-buried family secrets. But when Theron is assaulted and Jolie is shot at, Max designates himself as her personal bodyguard and aids her in untangling the Belle Rose mystery. Revelation upon revelation will hold the reader's interest, and the fast and furious sex scenes between Jolie and Max should please Barton's many fans. With its sultry Southern setting and well-drawn characters, this richly textured tale ranks among the best the genre has to offer. (Apr.) Forecast: For the past decade, Barton has paid her dues writing category romances, but her recent pairing with Linda Howard (Mackenzie's Pleasure/Defending His Own) has enhanced her profile as well as her fan base, which should translate into respectable sales for this book. A provocative title and an eye-catching cover will make it stand out from the pack, and a Romantic Times giveaway featuring 250 advance copies should help generate early buzz.
