It's exactly that heady combination of steely courage and sensitivity that first attracts Duncan Swift to Phoebe. After watching her talk one of his employees off a roof ledge, he is committed to keeping this intriguing, take-charge woman in his life. Phoebe's used to working solo, but she's finding that no amount of negotiation can keep Duncan at arm's length.
When she's grabbed by a man who throws a hood over her head and brutally assaults her - in her own precinct house - Phoebe can't help being deeply shaken. And when threatening messages appear on her doorstep, she's not just alarmed but frustrated. How do you go face-to-face with an opponent who refuses to look you in the eye?
Now, with Duncan backing her up every step of the way, she must establish contact with the faceless tormentor who is determined to make her a hostage to fear - before she becomes the final showdown.
"High Noon will enthrall readers with its irresistible combination of superbly crafted characters and a danger-rich plot." ( Booklist)

Good performance but the story is only average
I really enjoyed the first part of this story but by the end, I was a bit done. I'm pretty sure Police procedures in the States don't allow the boyfriend of the Lt. into incident sites, no matter how well intentioned or muscular they happen to be.
That being said, it was read really well by Susan Ericksen and was easy to listen to. I always enjoy reading Nora Roberts but when the dialogue is read aloud, her heroes become very macho and I always lose track of the story a bit while pondering how hard I'd hit them and with what, were it me having to listen to them.

Negotiate a romance
There's something quite comforting about Nora Roberts' books, after getting a few unknown doozies lately, I knew I could rely on a tame drama with some romance, yay!
Phoebe is a hostage negotiator trying to cope with a nightmare work colleague, a possible mole in the unit and an agorophobic mum. Good thing a hunka chunka appears on the scene!

Excellent narration and story - worth the credit
This is a great story, and read by an excellent narrator. I am actually writing this review after listening to the book a 2nd time. I had liked it the first time, but after being so fully engrossed the second I had to log in and give the book it's due praise. The narrator does a wonderful job with the voices, and there is a wild cast of characters that she gets to play with. A great love story but not to be out done by the mystery and suspense of the book. A strong woman character that you can believe in, like and root for. Truly a thumbs up in every way.
