With Hot Blooded, Lisa Jackson follows firmly in the footsteps of fellow New York Times bestselling authors Iris Johansen and Tami Hoag. An acknowledged master at crafting tales of romantic suspense, Jackson now weaves even stronger threads of tension and intrigue into this pulse-pounding tale.

A prostitute lies strangled in a seedy French Quarter hotel room. Miles away, in a rambling plantation house on the sultry shores of Lake Ponchartrain, popular late-night radio host Dr. Samanatha Leeds receives a threatening crank call. Soon, another hooker’s corpse turns up. Samantha’s ominous caller persists, along with a mysterious female claiming to be a woman from her past—a woman who’s been dead for years. With Detective Rick Bentz convinced that the serial killer prowling the shadowy streets of New Orleans is somebody close to Samantha, she doesn’t dare trust anyone. Especially Ty Wheeler, her seductive new neighbor who seems to know more about her than a stranger should.

Someone has discovered Samantha’s darkest secret. Somebody is convinced that lives must be sacrificed to pay for her sins. So far, the victims have been strangers. Prostitutes. But as a cunning, cold-blooded killer grows bolder, Samantha wonders in dread if she will be the next to die.

    " This was my second attempt to read Hot Blooded and I quit at 100 or so pages in. Too much emphasis on the radio station and the "nutjob caller." It was overkill 1/3 of the way in and I wasn't about to drag myself through the whole book just to be bored to tears. "

    " A pick-up for a quick read for the exercise bike...Part of Jackson's "New Orleans" series...this mystery, set in New Orleans, involves a serial killer, "Father James," with religious overtones...I'm concerned with the typical literati condemnation of religion that has emerged in the last 20 years...as the book resolved itself none of the anti-religion elements emerged so fears were unfounded...I enjoyed the introduction the detectives Rick Bentz and Reuben Montoya and will look forward to continuing the series over time "

    " I ended up really liking this book. Last night I thought I would not be able to finish it because I was having trouble with a lot of the internal dialogue Sam had continuously throughout the book. It started feeling redundant and I closed the book. I went back to it today because I had planned to go to the end because I really wanted to know who was killing all those people. Lisa Jackson set up a really good old-school mystery. I miss these sometimes when I am in Urban Fantasy land for months on end. But, I was looking for books that were set in New Orleans so I was drawn to this book because it came up in my search. Part of my disappointment was that it was more about the people and less about the city. I really wanted it to be the other way around. But, I was happily surprised. She had some really good red herrings in there and it got to the point where I kept changing my mind on who I thought was the killer. Good read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 1/11/2014

    " If I could give this book 3.5 I would. Overall, I enjoyed it. I'm a sucker for a mystery. But it felt incredibly long to me. There were a few surprises along the way, but some were predictable. The ending also seemed a little hurried. I remember thinking, after all of that, it just kindof ended abruptly. I did like how you got to know every character. I also love that the setting is New Orleans. The next book in this series is Cold- Blooded, and I've already downloaded it to my kindle. Good Job Lisa Jackson! "

    " Book - enjoyed parts but overall it was shallow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ralph McEwen | 1/4/2014

    " This book is a good read. The protagonist does all the right things, like telling the police and her co-workers about the incidents and getting them involved. The police a co-workers react appropriately and take actions to protect the protagonist. The scenes are well scripted and realistic. The bad guy is well hidden tell late in the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 1/3/2014

    " The book was extremely slow paced until the last few chapters and then things escalated extremely quickly leaving me eager to start the next book in the series. I wished the suspense started earlier on in the book. "

    " 2nd time around for this one t hough I didn't realize it until I started reading it.....kept me enthralled twice though - I will continue with the series... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 B.j. Thompson | 4/4/2013

    " I found this book to be a bit "flat." The murder mystery story-line was interesting, but the characters were not overly developed. The "love story" was dull. I blame Karin Slaughter! I will try another novel by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isaura | 9/24/2012

    " An earlier work of hers, not as grabbing as Absolute Fear, but still really good. I'm loving the murder mysteries :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amanda Wright | 9/23/2012

    " I am only halfway through the book so far. It's typical Lisa Jackson and it's dragging a bit. I am not emotionally invested in any of the characters. In fact, I think the main character is pretty stupid right now. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 7/28/2012

    " reminding self to not read any more of her books. This one was just trite and rote no engaging characters and a plot that my 7 year old could have guessed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 6/21/2012

    " I got hooked on Lisa Jackson during my 2010 beach week. After spending the week with trashy romance, I was in the mood for detective-light. Found this on the someone-else-left-it-behind bookshelf at the beach house, and I found a new favorite crime-fiction author. "

    " A radio shrink is getting calls and stalked by someone trying to blame her for a death 9 years ago when she was at a different radio station in a different city. "

    " NOLA series is amazing! Jackson has a way of sucking you in and keeping you entertained and hanging on until the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eky | 5/18/2011

    " Sorry, I am not impressed by the heroine, it is said that she is a DR of psychology but she does not think and act like one, instead she is more a shallow and man-thirst woman. Dissapointed :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Afsana | 4/17/2011

    " There was a lot of conicidences playing in this book

    but then I suppose asthe culprit found a person who was suceptible to being namipulated that is why- surprised they didn't cotton on earlier

    And as always there was the sex scenes

    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 4/13/2011

    " Thought I switch it up a bit a started reading the Lisa Jackson series. This is the first of romance/suspense and mystery. I was captured by chapter one and couldn't wait to get to the end. Now getting ready to read Cold Blooded. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 4/11/2011

    " Ok, a little slow in parts. Mystery was good, but figured it out half way in but I did like the twist at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 8/4/2010

    " I really enjoyed this book. But i found it was predictable. It was like the other book i just finished by her, so i never really felt i had started a new one. Excellant though and a great "on the edge of my seat" kinda book. Love Dick Bentz's character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brei | 2/27/2010

    " Pretty typical. Story line I feel a little far fetched. Good beach read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 2/21/2010

    " Started 2/20/10
    Finished 3/4/10

    I think I'm reading too many of these, because I was able to narrow down the suspects. I still liked the book and will read the next one...Cold Blooded...But not before I return to Eve Dallas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 2/10/2010

    " This was an audiobook that I listen to. It was pretty good. The narration was well done. I would recommend it to anyone that likes who-done-it thillers.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marnie | 1/2/2010

    " The book started out very good, with the suspense and of course the steamy romance. Ending was kind of cheesy. Could have been better like Absolute Fear.
    The crimes and romances are different per each book, but the characters carry over and new ones are introduced. Still like reading them. "
