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 like Linda Howard books a lot. This one was very good, but a couple of hers are 5-star worthy and this one just wasn't. I had trouble feeling a real connection and chemistry between the characters in this one.
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.
