Storyline

In steamy, sexy, sultry New Orleans, a police detective doesn't know whether to arrest his prime suspect or make love to her after he unexpectedly finds himself in a passionate and torrid affair with an accused killer in this erotic thriller. Assigned to investigate the beautiful owner of a lingerie company implicated in a heinous crime, an unwitting cop becomes trapped in a tangled web of murder, deception and lust. As the investigation (and desire between suspect and cop) heats up, the detective begins to believe his lover's story of innocence. Despite mounting evidence, the cop decides to do whatever it takes, including break the law, to help the woman prove she is innocent of murder. Written by Anonymous

Just read the book
6 July 2005 | by purplecranSee all my reviews

Anyone with a hand in (mis)casting this movie should be fired. The book was great, and the prospect of a movie (even small screen) was exciting. The casting gets a giant HUH?! from me though. Susan Lucci may have been the darling of TV movies at the time, but that didn't make her right for this part. Both she and Lee Horsley should have been left out, and people of the correct age should have starred instead. Not even the usually great Shari Belefonte could save this movie. None of the characters had any charisma -- not sure if it was the fault of a choppy script or actors just going through the motions. Probably both. If you see this on TV again someday (let's hope no one bothers airing it, though), just keep flipping channels! Do yourself a favor and just read the book (or any Sandra Brown book) instead.
