Overview


All Marianne Forster wants from her first holiday abroad is a little excitement— maybe even a fling in sunny, hot Morocco. She gets lucky on both counts when she meets Alan Waring, a mystery man who is more than happy to show a pretty tourist the sights. Disaster looms, however, when Mari leaves to return to England after a final night of passion in Alan's hotel room—and mistakenly departs on the airport bus with his bag, not hers. Alan, completely panicked, is revealed as a secret agent who has a very important SmartCard in that bag. He races after Mari and finds no trace of her—until he is informed that she has been kidnapped by a group of Algerians. Meanwhile, unaware that Alan is crossing the length and breadth of North Africa to find her, Mari is forced to survive the rigors of the deadly desert where she is held, not knowing who her captors are or whether she has any real chance of rescue.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A well-crafted tale that takes us places we may never go on our own."  —The Romance Studio

Publishers Weekly

A late-blooming British tourist visiting Morocco falls for a blond courier spy in Lucia's scattered desert romance. Marianne Forster's vacation takes a dangerously erotic turn when Alan Waring rescues her from some Rabat protestors. After worldly 35-year-old Alan makes love with virginal 24-year-old Mari, he's so distracted that he accidentally takes her flight bag home to England. The bag he leaves behind contains a vital smart card. Terrorists wanting the smart card kidnap Mari and take her to Algeria, where she struggles to escape while Alan searches for her. Lucia (Run Among Thorns) pens some laughable prose ("She was pretty and she was afraid. Was she still afraid?... Was she still pretty?") and scants the real world details that should bolster a tale of international intrigue, but her solid romantic plotting mostly manages to carry the book. (June)
