Fear is Louder Than Words

Her stalker taught her fear. Her suspicions taught her terror.

Rochelle Cassidy has the perfect life as a radio talk show host in the Detroit market, but her celebrity status doesn't stop an angry listener from wanting her ... dead. Ed McGrath's ideal life as a pro-hockey player doesn't include a damsel in distress until the night he discovers Rochelle being attacked in a deserted parking structure.

Circumstances throw them together in more ways than one when Rochelle's producer plays matchmaker. A sick boy, a corrupt politician, and questionable medical practices put more than merely Rochelle in danger, and still, her attacker shadows her every step.

Will Ed be able to break through her trust issues in order to protect her, or will she continue to see him as Detroit's bad boy athlete? Her life AND his depend on it.

Linda S. Glaz has written a spine tingling suspense interlaced with a romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  From page 1 I was pulled into the story and the strong characters and plot kept me turning the pages.  
Chapter 1 begins:
Chistmastime is near
Happy time of year
But Princess.... you deserve to die.  

Talk about intriguing.  Rochelle Cassidy, also known as Motor Mouth Princess, works at WNIC as a talk show host.  She is known for her controversial show, but more so after her interview with Detroit Councilman Bennett and his fall from grace.  Now with this last stalker note she's convinced Councilman Bennett is behind the notes and trying to use them as scare tactics.  The attack on her in the parking garage shook her to the very core.  Strangely enough the only time she felt safe was with Ed McGrath, professional NHL star, who was nicknamed the "Pain Machine".  Ed came to her rescue during the attack and as the days progressed became her friend also.  Both were attracted, but Rochelle was not comfortable persuing a relationship at this time, plus Ed led a lifestyle she hated.  Rochelle vows not to let the stalker see how much he's shaken her and refuses to let fear control her life.  

This was a wonderful story that kept me reading long into the night.  As the story progressed and a new plot twist was added I would think just one more chapter.lol
Needless to say I really enjoyed this story.  
Linda Glaz is a new author for me, but I will definitely be reading more.  She literally pulls the reader into the story with an engaging plot and strong characters.  I loved Rochelle, but felt she was a bit reckless at times, of course given the same situation I may have reacted the same as her.  She was someone I could picture as a friend and having a cup of coffee with.  Ed stole my heart when he talked about wanting to be a better person when he was around Rochelle.  The lifestyle he had grown comfortable with no longer held the same appeal.  
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good suspenseful story that's hard to put down even when the laundry is calling.lol 
 *I received this book from the Publisher for a honest and unbiased review as stated above.  I was not required to write a positive review.  I thank them for this opportunity.
