Shades of Desire by Virna DePaul

Review of Shades of Desire by Virna DePaul

4 out of 5 smirks

Synopsis: "
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."

Shades of Desire by Virna DePaul is a mystery thriller story about trusting in others as much as you trust in yourself.  What I loved most about this story was how unrelenting both Natalie and Mac are towards one another.  They seem to push the other to be a better version of one another which makes their relationship rocky until they figure out they are exactly what the other wants.  I loved that this story did not revolve around solely Mac and Natalie's budding romance, but intertwined it with a murder mystery involving a lot more people than readers will realize.  I give Shades of Desire by Virna DePaul 4 smirks because Natalie and Mac have heated passion that will give readers pause on how things may or may not turn out.
