Deadly Attraction is another intriguing romantic suspense book by Misty Evans. Something I love about this author is her ability to research different things for her characters and implement them into her stories. In Deadly Attraction, we learn a lot about Forensic Psychologist Emma Collins and how she goes from analyzing criminals and working with the court system to helping juveniles on her ranch with her horses as therapy. It was a fascinating read from that standpoint alone. Add in struggling Mitch Holden, on loan to the Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce and it makes for an interesting combination.
Evans writes such compelling characters in each of her stories and Emma and Mitch in Deadly Attraction are a great example of that. They have both been through tragic events in which they carry a large amount of guilt and they help each other in a way I didn’t expect. They didn’t try to fix each other, but just accepted each other with no questions asked. Evans crafts their romance fantastically as it intertwines with the plot seamlessly.
In addition to the sizzling romance, the plot was creepy. I found I was not able to read it before bed or worried I would not be able to sleep. The villain, a criminal that Emma helped put in jail has escaped and is after her. That is why Mitch is sent to protect her. They are trapped at Emma’s ranch due to wildfires and we are all left on the edge of our seat wondering when Goodsman (the escaped murderer) is going to show up. I was a anxious through all of it.
If you are looking for a romantic suspense read that will have you paying attention, on the edge of your seat from beginning to end and caught up in a fun, natural romance, give Deadly Attraction a read.

A wildfire out of control…
His twin brother is dead and the only way National Intelligence officer, Mitch Holden, is going to make it through the holidays is by staying focused on his latest SCVC Taskforce investigation—catching a homegrown terrorist with a penchant for arson. The terrorist has started a wildfire eating up thousands of acres of forest and putting dozens of people in danger. When Mitch is pulled off that assignment to play bodyguard to a sexy forensic psychologist who sees past all his defenses, he ends up in the middle of a personal wildfire that’s as out of control as the one burning around the two of them.
A killer on the loose…
The trial that should have made her career cost Dr. Emma Collins everything—her home, her future, the baby that was growing inside her after she testified against famous actor Chris Goodsman, debunking his insanity defense and sending him to prison for murder. Rebuilding her life in the aftermath, Emma now rescues horses, dogs, and juvenile delinquents, and there’s no way she’s heading to a safe house because Chris Goodsman has escaped. She refuses to let anyone terrorize her or destroy her life again. But when a smart-talking, irresistible federal agent shows up insisting he has to protect her, she realizes her new bodyguard needs a bit of therapy. Good thing taking in lost causes happens to be her specialty.
Two people filled with grief may get burned…
Trapped at the ranch by the wildfire, Mitch and Emma explore a searing attraction, but soon discover they’re not alone. A killer has joined them—one who will do anything to get revenge and isn’t afraid to take out anyone who gets in his way.
