Night Fever by Diana Palmer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Rebecca Cullen has not led an average life of a twenty-four year old, with the responsibilities two brothers and an ailing grandfather she spends all her time either at work or home working to keep her family afloat. The only spark in her life is the irritating banter she shares with a stunning man she rides the elevator with everyday.
Rourke Kilpatrick is known as a merciless district attorney who has made it his number one goal to rid the streets of drugs, when Rebecca's brother is arrested on a drug charge they finally meet, but Rebecca is mortified when she learns it is the man she has been throwing jabs at in the elevator.
Rourke finds himself fascinated by Rebecca, who seems to have the weight of the world on her shoulders. A bit of a loner, Rourke ensues himself in Rebecca's life but as her brother continues to spiral downward and a deception is revealed will it turn Rebecca against Rourke?
I thought this was one of Diana Palmer's better books. Rourke is a hard man, but you understand why and there is a softness to him as he becomes involved with Rebecca. Wonderful read.
