Tangled Lies (Men Made in America: Hawaii, No 11)
Tangled Lies - Men Made in America: Hawaii, No 11 Author:Anne Stuart HAWAIIAN HUNK — He was cunning -- it showed in his mocking smile and unfathomable hazel eyes. And after spending six months in a five-by-eight-foot cell, posing as political fugitive Emmett Chandler seemed almost too easy. But he hadn't counted on the interference of a brown-eyed beauty who thought she had found her long-lost brot... more »her.
Playing big brother to Rachel Chandler was pure torture. It wasn't just the Hawaiian heat that kept him tossing and turning at night, it was knowing that if he didn't blow his cover, he'd never get under hers.

A bad-boy hero typical of Anne Stuart. Rachel Chandler faces her fear of flying to be reunited with her long lost brother, not knowing the man claiming to be her brother is using his identity for other purposes.
Fifteen years ago, Emmett Chandler was involved with a radical group of protestors when a bomb went off killing several people, including his girlfriend. Emmett quickly disappears, never to be heard from again. Now his little sister, Rachel, is an adult and has been searching for him. After hearing that he is on the island of Kauai, Rachel takes the first plane and tracks him down. Emmett does not recognize Rachel when he sees her. Why??? Because he isn't the real Emmett Chandler. He is posing as Emmett in order to smoke him out and can't let Rachel know he isn't her brother. That won't be easy since Emmett can't seem to keep his hands off of her.
I usually love Anne Stuart's brooding heroes and unique plots, but this one doesn't work for me. Rachel is a whiny heroine who acts like a five year old around her brother...when she isn't wanting to kiss him and wondering why she has such deep feelings for him. Ick! We know he isn't her brother, but she doesn't know that. My rating: 1.5 Stars.
