A couple of comments on this book. My sister read it before I did and made note of two things. 1) The last thing that a person who has been sexually brutalized would normaly want is another cock in bed. 2) Christine feehan writes a good mystery, but there is too much sex. I told her that Ms Feehan writes romances, not mysteries, and in romances, sex sells. For some odd reason she completely missed the Romance label on the spine of the book. I liked the storyline and I think mindhealer Kate was able to repair some of the victem's psycological damage just by being around her. My favorite scene was the wedding at the end.
