Nora Roberts is unstoppable. In her astonishing twenty-year career, she has emerged as one of the most powerful and prolific voices in fiction. She has amassed a loyal readership of millions and wins new fans with each publication. This first-time hardcover edition of "Sacred Sins" brings back a classic Nora Roberts novel, full of simmering passion and taut suspense that will thrill readers.When the mayor of Washington, D.C., asks renowed psychologist Tess Court to work in conjunction with the police to profile a deranged killer known as the Priest, she has no idea what she's getting into. This relentless psychopath believes he is saving the souls of the young pretty blondes he strangles with the white silk stole worn by true men of the cloth. But Tess knows otherwise: this is the work of a madman bent on spreading a twisted ministry of violence.With the aid of handsome police sergeant Ben Paris, Tess hopes to track down the Priest before he causes more harm. But any professional distance between her and Ben quickly disappears as their attraction grows. It's a distraction the pair call ill afford, for Tess -- pretty, slender, and blond -- has become the next target of the very killer they seek.

New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts serves up a sizzling novel of explosive suspense and sensual romance as the search for a murderer ignites passion between a beautiful psychiatrist and the sexy, brooding detective determined to crack the case.

In the unbearable heat of another sultry Washington, D.C., summer, a serial killer is on the loose. Dr. Tess Court, one of the capital's most successful psychiatrists, wants nothing to do with the case--until the police convince her to lend a hand to the lead investigator, legendary ladies' man Detective Ben Paris.

Scarred by his family's history, Ben has even less use for shrinks than Tess has for him--but the forces of animal magnetism and a shared desire to catch the demented criminal known as "The Priest" inexorably erode the walls they've built. They're opposites in so many ways, yet that seems only to fan the flames of attraction for which danger has supplied the spark. To stop a killer who thinks he can absolve sins through murder, Ben will need every ounce of psychological insight Tess can offer him. And she'll need the help of a lawman willing to stare fear in the face if she's going to avoid becoming the madman's next victim.
