Summary:

A striking beauty with a taste for diamonds and dangerous men, Drea Rousseau was more than content to be arm candy for Rafael Salinas, a notorious crime lord who deals with betrayal through quick and treacherous means: a bullet to the back of the head, a blade across the neck, an incendiary device beneath a car. Now eager to break with Rafael, Drea makes a fateful decision and a desperate move, stealing a mountain of cash from the malicious killer. After all, an escape needs to be financed. Though Drea runs, Salinas knows she can't hide - and he dispatches a cold-blooded assassin in hot pursuit, resulting in a tragic turn of events. Or does it? Left for dead, Drea miraculously returns to the realm of the living a changed woman. She's no longer shallow and selfish, no longer steals or cheats or sells herself short. But in order to feel safe she will need to take down those who marked her for death.

    Sorry, Ms. Howard, but after years of enjoying your work, this one left me cold. The only character who was even halfway developed was the crime boss but this went down the tubes when he "suddenly" discovered that he was in love with Drea. NOT believable. There was absolutely no reason for the hero and heroine to fall in love. She was trash and he was an unknown element throughout the story who appeared willing to settle for seconds, or thirds, or. . . The only section of the book I thoroughly enjoyed was "Heaven", particularly when Drea came face-to-face with her son. If this had been worked more, it could have gone a long way toward explaining Drea's change of heart and behavior.
