This book pits a female contract assassin for the CIA with a male agent sent to terminate her after she goes "rogue". A page turner as are all of Ms. Howard's books.

Its been a while since I could give a book five stars. Its worth it. Good, interesting read about an assassin on the wrong side of the law seeking vengeance. An agent is sent to detain her, and they end up working together, getting pulled into danger and having to work together. It was well developed, and I couldnt tell that the writer was trying to sound knowledgeable about the CIA, Interpol and other government agencies. She convinced me!! Its worth a read, and worth adding to your collectors bookshelf. I will check out Ms. Howards' other books.

I haven't read anything by Linda Howard in a long time, but I'm so glad I got reacquainted with this story. Suspenseful plot, excellent characters, great story. I'm looking forward to catching up on all the Howard books I've missed over the years.

Lily Mansfield is a contract killer for the CIA, 37 years old, with 19 years of experience. She is also a grieving parent whose 13-year-old, adopted daughter has recently been killed, along with her foster parents who were Lily's best friends. Lily has set out to kill the man who ordered the hit on Zia and her foster parents, and to wreck as much havoc as she can on his organization. She is doing this without the CIA's sanction; in fact, they have sent one of their top agents, Lucas Swain, to stop her.

Sound grim? It isn't. Lucas Swain is not only an alpha hunk, he is also one funny guy. I found myself chuckling at Swain's opinions and actions, whether it was his thoughts on "chick food" or his views on Fiats. (He hates 'em.) The man went through more cars than Stephanie Plum.

Efficient, professional, and without apology, Lily Mansfield is a hired assassin, working as a contract agent for the CIA.

Now after 19 years of service, Lily has been drawn into a dangerous game that hasn't been sanctioned, seeking vengeance for her own reasons.

Seeking revenge for the death of her best friends and adopted daughter, Lily Mansfield, a contract agent for the CIA, goes after Salvatore Nervi, the man who ordered their deaths. When the CIA learns that one of their assassins has gone rogue, they send CIA Agent Lucas Swain to take her down. Lily wants to learn why Salvatore Nervi had her friends killed, while trying to out maneuver his deadly son, Rodrigo, and hiding from the operative she is sure the CIA has sent to stop her.

This is the third book in Linda Howard's CIA series. I found Lily to be a strong character. She is dealing with her grief while seeking revenge for her friend's deaths. She is also working all alone with no one to help her with her plan. Lucas Swain is not your usual dark brooding CIA operative. This guy has a sense of humor and loves fast cars. It was a refreshing change. The story has some good twists. Your never sure when the bad guys are going to pop up in the book or how our heroine is going to get away. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Blurb on back of book:

Efficient and unapologetic, Lily Mansfield is a hired assasin working as a contract agent for the CIA. Her targets are the powerful and corrupt, those who can't be touched by the law. Now Lily is playing a deadly, unauthorized game, seeking her own vengeance, compromising her superiors and endangering her life. Fellow CIA agent Luca Swain's orders: either bring her in or bring her down. Yet he too is drawn into the game with Lily Mansfield, dancing on a tightrope, trying to avoid a major international incident while battling a tenacious foe dogging their every step. Vigilantly watching her back, Lily doesn't see the lethal peril directly in her path ... or that loyalty has a price.

Another good suspense novel from Linda Howard. The main character is well drawn, believable and sympathetic, the hero is sexy and humorous, and the situation is tense and credible. Contains very strong sexuality, as in all of her books.

Efficient, professional, and without apology, Lily Mansfield is a hired assassin, working as a contract agent for the CIA. Her targets are the powerful and corrupt, those who cant be touched by the law.

Now, after nineteen years of service, Lily has been drawn into a dangerous game that hasnt been sanctioned, seeking vengeance for her own reasons. Each move bolder than the next, she is compromising her superiors, drawing unwanted attention, and endangering her very life. Though stress and shock have made her feel somewhat invincible and a little cocky, Lily knows that she too can be taken out in an instant.

A CIA agent himself, Lucas Swain recognizes the signs of trauma in the line of fire. His orders: either bring her in or bring her down. Keeping laser focus on the task at hand while vigilantly watching her back, Mansfield never sees the lethal peril that lies directly in her path.

Kiss Me While I Sleep is a daring thriller of passion, sudden twists, and richly imagined characters who live and breathe in readers hearts.

Not my favorite Linda Howard book - the CIA agent in this book is so goofy at times that you want to bonk him on the head. The heroine was a very strong character - a CIA contract agent bent on revenge that starts killing CIA resources/sources. He just came off years of deep cover work in South America and is assigned to neutralize her. Was a bit inconsistent that he would have such expensive tastes and fit in with the European locale after working in the opposite side of the world. This book takes place after the one with Frank Vinay and John Medina with the weapons dealers. In this novel, they are trying to prevent dangerous germs falling in the wrong hands. Has some issues dealing with grief, relating to children that didn't fit in with their dangerous careers.

A great read. Close friends of Lily (assassin for CIA) are killed and she goes after the killers one at a time. She is great in her changes of disguise, meets up with a fellow assassin, whom she doesn't know is hired to kill her. They are attrached to each other. She needs his help, not sure if she can trust him, and has been on the run since she killed a high powered man that the CIA was in close contact with.
