Shades Of Desire By Virna DePaul

WHAT SHE CAN'T SEE COULD KILL HER. Natalie Jones is the lucky survivor of an elusive killer who preys on young women and then disappears from view. And since her harrowing ordeal, the once gutsy photojournalist has remained isolated in her home, paralyzed by fear and her failing vision. Special Agent Liam "Mac" McKenzie has scars of his own. But despite his efforts to ignore the attraction that simmers between him and Natalie, he needs her help to catch a predator. Soon, they will forge a tentative alliance-charged with desire. Through a soft-focus lens, Natalie dares to envision a future with Mac beyond the investigation...never guessing that the clues hidden within her photographs are drawing them into an explosive confrontation with a madman.  

Elena's Review:

I really enjoyed this book,especially when it came to the characters stories plots and thow both the hero and heroine each had their own demons to deal with. It made the story have more meaning, besides just a mystery/suspense novel. Both characters have a past and both were very hesitant for what the future had in store for them, or, if there ever could be a future.I thoroughly liked how the book explored the emotional side of Natalie,she was made to seem like a strong independent Heroine who needed no one to help her overcome her current stage of being a disabled blind woman,but is also struggling to accept her blindness,but her partner in crime who she seems to push away more and more often is the one person who has faith in her,Mac. Mac and relationships just don’t mix,but he has a strong hold for wanting Natalie in his life despite that his brain keeps telling him to back off. 

Special Agent Mckenzie aka "Mac" is working on a murder case when he bumps heads with Natalie,whom has become a victim of a killer who likes to prey on younger woman. Natalie has no idea why or how's she survived her attack, but Mac is determined to keep her safe and find this madman. 

The book  delved into a lot of emotion, ranging from self-loathing and pity to love,forgiveness, and friendship.Along with the suspense of crazy demented perps. Lol!! I've dealt with many romantic suspense novels  where the villan  is  usually a sicko, but this novel had three perps, or I could say four,the woman in their circle is demented too.  Lol! It will definitely keep your mind reeling. 

This was my first novel I've read by this author,I quite enjoyed myself. In the near future when I come across a novel written by this author, I won't hesitate to add it to my to-be read shelves. I liked her style of writing and hope to come across many more :)
