This was a page turner for me. I started it at 1:30am with the intention of reading till I was sleepy. At 5am, I was still going at it. I had to put it down, reluctantly, and catch some shut eye. I finished it as soon as I got up.
I laughed, learned some things and could not wait to see what will happen next. Two thumbs up!!!
This was a fabulous book, it grabs you from the beginning and doesn't stop! It is one of those you stay up and read all night (or day). Love the character development and how they all interact with each other. A great read.
Another great Lowell novel! Just enough romance to keep it interesting but more than enough suspense and drama to keep you turning pages! You'll love how the relationship develops between Rand and Kayla and won't be able to put the book down until you're done! Trust me, worth every page! 5 Stars!!
A reluctant St. Kilda operative intervenes to save a sassy gritty gal in over her head in an international money laundering for weapons banking scheme. Simmering attraction of course yields to hot steamy scenes while the couple stay one step ahead of the evil nefarious weapons dealers. Unpredictable and intriguing. Another winner from E. Lowell.
Elizabeth Lowell has been an auto buy for me for over a decade, but slipping the last few years. Not her best effort, again...kinda cookie cutter. Ms. Lowell is beginning to sound self righteous...bad guys are overpoweringly evil, goverments (including ours) are corrupt and/or inept, officials desire to do good but are ineffective & puppets of crooked superiors. Only her heros (self discribed as operating in legal gray areas) can save the world...much ego Ms. Lowell?
Excellent book, good reading. Lots of intrigue/twists. If you haven't read the first two St. Kilda books, I encourage you to do so to fill in some background for the organization, but other than that it is a stand alone storyline.
It took most of the first CD to get my bearings with this story and figure out who was who and where it was going, once I did, it was compelling and enjoyable. This is the first audio I've listened to Carol Monda read and I was very impressed with her smooth and even delivery.
Kayla Shaw is a private banker in Arizonaâ"smart and capable but underpaid and underappreciated. Rand McCree is a haunted man who paints landscapes in the Pacific Northwest, burning with a need for answers about the terrible event that shattered his world. They are two strangers with nothing in common . . . until their lives entwineâ"and explode.
On what at first appears to be an ordinary day, everything changes for Kayla, as she barely escapes a kidnapping attempt and finds herself accused of a shocking crime: the illegal laundering of hundreds of millions of dollars. Damned by lies and false "evidence," she is trapped with no place to run.
After five agonizing years, Rand has finally been offered what he desires the most: the name of his twin brother's murderer. Hungry for vengeance, he accepts a job with St. Kilda Consulting that will place him in the killer's orbit . . . and tantalizingly close to Kayla Shaw. The cold-blooded international criminal responsible for Rand's brother's death has targeted Kayla as his next victim. Since she can't turn to the police, who believe she's guilty as sin, she must place her life in the hands of the shadowy, secretive man who has come out of nowhere to protect her.
Suspicious of each other, needing each other, they are two against the worldâ"with unknown enemies on all sides and even the government itself suspectâ"as the violence of the past erupts in the present. And now innocence alone will not be enough to keep Kayla Shaw alive. . . .
