#1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood proves she is a master storyteller in this classic romantic suspense novel featuring FBI agent Nick Buchanan.

In the still shadows of the confessional, the penitent kneels and makes a bone-chilling disclosure: Bless me father, for I will sin.... Slowly, tauntingly, the man describes his murderous past—how he stalked his victim, worked his way into her life, and then took that life in a violent rage—and his plan to kill again. Only this time, he has raised the stakes in his twisted game, daring authorities to catch him if they can. And this time, he has revealed the name of his next intended victim.

Agent Nick Buchanan has come face-to-face with society's worst monsters and depraved minds in his work for one of the FBI's most elite units, but The Heartbreaker threatens to hit close to home. The intended victim, Laurant Madden, is his best friend's sister.

Soon he is caught up in an intricate chase with one of the most devious psychopaths of his career. But as the danger grows, so does an electrifying attraction between Nick and Laurant.

One false move will cost both of them everything that matters.

I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. It's one of the few books I've read where I didn't figure out "whodunit" well before the end of the story. It was great to read Nick and Laurant's story and I can't wait to read more about this interesting group of people.read more

This was an enjoyable story, that mixes romance with fear. A man goes to confession asking Father Tommy Madden for absolution for a crime he hasn't commited, yet. He describes in chilling detail how he tortured and killed his last victim, and dares the priest to call the police. After refusing to violate the sanctity of the confessional, the killer, who calls himself "Heart-breaker" torments Father Madden by telling him that he has already selected his next victim, Father Madden's sister. In panic Father Madden calls his childhood friend Nick, who belongs to an elite division of the FBI, begging him to protect his sister, while refusing to divulge the killer, and violating his oath as a priest. Laurant Madden however, refuses to hide in fear and provokes the killer to strike out at her.

This was Julie Garwood’s first romantic suspense (not to mention the first book of her’s I’ve read), and if you ask me, she hit it out of the park. I really liked this. I liked Nick’s blindspots and Laurant’s straight-forwardness and the quirky cast of characters in Holy Oaks. Though I figured out the identity of the Heartbreaker about halfway through the book, I didn’t know where he was hiding until Nick did. Big thumbs up!
