Jonathan Brighton, CEO of Guardian, a computer security firm based in Austin, needs a vacation so he decides to on a retreat to a remote part of Mexico. Along the way two Mexicans stop his vehicle on an isolated road. The thugs assault and shoot Jonathan, leaving him on the roadside to die.

Six months later, FBI Agent Kathleen Cavanaugh goes undercover as a physical therapist assigned to help Jonathan still recovering from his near death injuries. Her real assignment is to observe Jonathan and determine whether he murdered a Guardian employee Derek Miller, who died while Jonathan was on his ill-advised Mexican trip. Shockingly, Katie finds herself attracted to the vulnerable CEO even as she wonders if he is a cold-blooded killer.

MIDNIGHT RAIN is a thrilling romantic suspense that sub-genre fans will appreciate. Especially delightful is the dilemma confronting Katie as she struggles between love and the potential that her beloved is a murderer who had bad luck with his Mexican alibi. Interestingly readers will feel the anguish that Jonathan suffers as he struggles to recover physically and mentally. Though the final twist seems odd and out of left field, Dee Davis delivers a strong tale, as her fans have come to expect from her while sending new readers seeking previous novels from this skilled artist.
