Copy That by HelenKay Dimon

Returning from his latest Border Patrol assignment, Jeremy Hill seeks sanctuary in his twin brother's home. The last thing he expects to find is an armed man already inside, or Meredith Samms, a gorgeous tenant caught in the cross fire. Then he discovers that the gunman's attack is meant for his twin brother, who is nowhere in sight, and Jeremy must take matters into his own hands. Searching for his brother while trying to protect this girl next door, Jeremy finds himself caught up in the danger he'd become all too familiar with. In his world, everyone's a target and anyone can be a suspect, so Jeremy has no room for emotions. But what Meredith stirs within him may complicate this unexpected mission to the point of no return.
I was first introduced to HelenKay Dimon’s writing through her contribution to SEAL of My Dreams, an anthology that contained 18 short stories centering around SEALs and their significant others. I enjoyed her writing and the ease in which she took us straight to the heart and soul of her characters and their relationships, and with Copy That I got more of the same. It’s a fast paced, action packed installment of the Harlequin Intrigue collection and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed my first experience with this line. Bad guys that were good guys and good guys that were bad kept me guessing right up to the end who it was that really should be feared.

I’ve said this a lot recently, but it’s worth repeating: Today’s Harlequin books are not the same cheesy, melodramatic books they've long been labeled. The stories are well written, and as in this case, exciting tales that draw you in and keep you coming back for more, and it’s authors like Ms. Dimon who have made Harlequin the publishing force to be reckoned with that it is today.

The bottom line: I’ll definitely be reading more by this author and more in the Harlequin Intrigue line of stories.

Overall Rating: 4 stars

Characters: 4 stars
Story: 4 stars
Writing: 4 stars

For those interested I’d rate this a Steam Level: 3 of 5. Passion, but no detailed sex scenes.

My thanks to Novel Sidekick for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
