Savino headed for the computer station that had been designated for his use as Gillian headed toward Brad’s office. Her pace slowed as a strong, unexpected curiosity seized her. She’d often wondered what Brad had been doing since they’d been apart

Savino headed for the computer station that had been designated for his use as Gillian headed toward Brad’s office. She’d often wondered what Brad had been doing since they’d been apart. His office didn’t fill in the missing holes very well.

After a moment he opened it and stepped back. She walked in, dropped her handbag on his bed and sank onto the end of it. Hi, honey, I’m home, she said. Hi, honey, I’m home, she said n his narrow hips. And where have you been? he asked. Is that some hussy’s lipstick I see on your collar?. She flopped back on his bed and closed her eyes. Don’t start with me. I’ve been out at the junior college trying to interview Waneath’s professors. Talk about your exercise in futility.

A little secret...Dana Morancy adores her father, so it isn't surprising that she followed in his career footsteps and joined the New York Police Department. But after four years on the job, she is involved in a "suicide by cop." Uncertain whether she'll ever be able to fire a gun again, she becomes a private investigator. Noah Haine works at a Manhattan import shop that's being sabotaged. He and Dana join forces and find the villain-find, too, that they've fallen in love. Dana and Noah are ready for happily ever after. But they may have to wait a while. In fact, they may have to wait forever. Because Dana's father has a little secret...

Dorintrius
Hired to find a saboteur in a small import company, PI Dana Morancy goes undercover as an organizational design consultant. Instant attraction to Noah Haine causes Dana to remind herself that he is off limits, at least until she can rule him out as a suspect. Interestingly, Dana carries a lot of emotional baggage, having given up her beloved career as one of New York's police officers following a devastating event.
Immediately after meeting Dana, Noah surfs the web looking for information on this design consultant. He wonders if she is either a cop or a PI. He finds a website with her credentials as a consultant, but, still suspicious, follows her home later that day, soon learning her true identity. Rather than making her look bad to the bosses, he insists that they team up and find the saboteur together.
Dawn Stewardson neatly sidesteps ethical issues of a PI becoming involved with a potential suspect by not allowing the romance to grow between them until the second half of the book. However, that plotting decision presents a problem for the reader. The focus on plot to the exclusion of character development results in distancing the reader from the hero and heroine and not buying into their developing romance. Worse, the final conflict that threatens to tear them apart blindsides the reader, rather than working convincingly into the plot. On the other hand, the mystery is carefully plotted, well motivated, and credibly developed. Nevertheless, UNEXPECTED OUTCOME is unexpectedly disappointing.
