Walker has worked hard at his job as head of security for Senator Prescott and his daughter, Heather. He’s watched her grow up from the tender age of twelve; he felt very close to her through their good-natured bantering over how she wouldn’t be a problem for him. Now that Heather has grown into a lovely woman, Walker can no longer deny his growing feelings for her and decides he needs to separate himself from her. Although he changes his focus more onto her father, he’s always thinking of her and checking up on how the new team guarding her is coping with her antics of escaping them.

Years later, Heather is the target of several men who want to stop her father from making their crimes public and she has been injured because of it. Once again, Walker is in charge of protecting her and she is determined to show him how much she loves him. Even with him trying to keep his distance, nothing will stop the attraction they have for each other and having to be on the run only puts them together more.

Divine Intervention, truly a great story of murder and suspense, had me thinking hard about how greed can make men contemplate harming others for their own gain. The main characters were able to get away from the villains and while running, they spoke of their love for each other during the stressful times. Heather and Walker really heat up the story with their steaming hot love sessions, when they were able to temporary forget their troubles.

The creativity of Ms. Michaels has wowed me, leaving me wanting to read more of her books to experience more of her writings. I really enjoyed how she included the financial crisis going on today; it made this story more believable for me. There is not a lot of past history given, surrounding most of the characters, for a better understanding of why Heather’s father felt the need to take on the villains that were almost untouchable. This is a very enjoyable read and I will be looking for more from this author.
