SANDY's SHORT TAKESOrchids keep popping up in stories these days. But it's their caretakers that are the truly provocative, colorful specimens. Witness Aiden Flynn, an NYPD homicide detective, who agrees to tend his fellow cop, Ryan Hills's exotic flowers and discovers Ryan's been sprouting something besides flowers in Stella Cameron's Glass Houses.
Olivia FitzDurham knows someone's trying to kill her, and she flees England for New York. As Aiden tries to protect her, the suspense and sensuality build into a firestorm that's as fast-paced and quixotic as the Internet exchanges which first brought them into each other's lives.
