Carla Neggerís newest novel Nightís Landing, continues the saga of the Winter family that was featured in the novel, Cold Ridge. In Nightís Landing it is finally Nate Winterís turn to find love.

Nate is a Deputy U.S. Marshal in New York City, after a press conference; he and his partner Rob Dunnemore are wounded in a sniper attack in Central Park. Nate is only slightly wounded but Rob is critically wounded and itís these circumstances that bring Nate Winter and Sarah Dunnemore together. Sarah is a historical archaeologist who specializes in old homes. She considers herself a woman able to handle any situation. However, when it appears that the Dunnemore family has been targeted because of their personal relationship with the President of the United States, it becomes apparent that Sarah needs Nate Winterís kind of protection.

Nightís Landing is another winner from an author whose books always takes the reader for a wild ride. This novel is no different; the suspense builds from the first chapter right through the entire book, capturing the readerís attention right from the start. However, this is not only a suspense novel but also a true romance. The story that develops between Nate and Sarah is touching and truly romantic. If you like a hero that is out to protect the love of his life with all that is in him, than this is the book for you. However, that does not mean that Sarahís character is wimpy, in fact nothing could be further from the truth. Neggerís has created a heroine that is tough, determined, and loyal. The characterizations in this book make it a true joy to read and allow the reader to become very attached to Nate and Sarah and involved in their lives. Nightís Landing is a wonderful novel, with a deeply moving love story that also reveals a surprise with every turn of the page. My advice is to go out and buy this book for a truly enjoyable read.
