...I would hesitate to apply the word romance at all. Unfortunately, the suspense aspect didn’t work well enough to compensate for this, and when I finally closed the book, I was left feeling as if I’d just wasted my time.

Synopsis

If At First You Don't Succeed



It's been seven years since the Seattle Strangler terrorized the city. His victims were all young, pretty, their lifeless bodies found wrapped in a home-sewn white dress. But there was one who miraculously escaped death, just before the Strangler disappeared. . .

Kill

Lara Church has only hazy memories of her long-ago attack. What she does have is a home in Austin, a job, and a chance at a normal life at last. Then Texas Ranger James Beck arrives on her doorstep with shattering news: The Strangler is back. And this time, he's in Austin. . .

And Kill Again. . .

He's always craved her, even as he killed the others. For so long he's been waiting to unleash the beast within. And this time, he'll prove he holds her life in his hands--right before he ends it forever. . .

Praise for the novels of Mary Burton
