I can still remember reading Naked in Death the first time. I got it from the library and started it while I was waiting for a battery of prenatal tests with my daughter (and oh man what a pregnancy – then again it was because I was on bedrest that I ended up writing a book so) and I read the entire thing that day. I was completely and totally blown away by Eve Dallas and her story, and by Roarke.
To this day I’ve enjoyed every single installment in the In Death series, which says a lot given how many books there are in the series and that the series is about the same couple. I’ve loved watching Eve and Roarke grow to love and trust each other. And the growth of the supporting cast of characters. It’s really one of the best long running series I can think of. (and it was this series that encouraged me to try her Nora books as well)
In a world of danger and deception, she walks the line–between seductive passion and scandalous murder…
Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over ten years on the force, she’s seen it all–and knows her survival depends on her instincts. And she’s going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire–and a suspect in Eve’s murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it’s up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about–except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.
This blurb really doesn’t begin to give you an idea of how broken Eve is, or of her power and strength. I think it’s through Roarke and the other characters that you truly get to know Eve and respect her. She’s not easy all the time, she’s defensive and prickly and misunderstood.
I love, love, love this book. I’ve read and re-read this book countless times so I figured I’d make it a Favorites Wednesday giveaway to give a lucky winner their chance to fall in love with Eve Dallas too.
