The money Lucia and her new partner received to open their detective agency had come with strings: any assignment delivered via red envelope had to be top priority. No sweat. No one could make Lucia do something she didn't believe in--right?

Wrong. Lucia soon learned that every choice she made meant life or death for innocent people. No one could be trusted, not even the ex-cop she'd hired--and fallen for. In fact, Ben might be her fatal weakness, if the powers warring to control the future used him to control Lucia....

Meet the Author

Rachel Caine has been writing since the age of fourteen, and began acquiring rejection slips at the age of fifteen. Undeterred, she continued on for another fifteen years, at which time the rejection slips stopped coming, and contracts arrived instead. She's mad for fencing (the kind with swords, not posts), reptiles (two pet iguanas, an African lizard and a tortoise named Shelley, after the poet), and movies (the DVD collection is daunting). She adores writing and reading, not necessarily in that order. She has worked as a payroll accountant, an insurance investigator, a graphic designer, webmaster, and is currently employed full time in corporate communications. She's been married to the award-winning fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad for fourteen years.

    Open the Red Letters? You're doomed if you do and doomed if you

    Open the Red Letters? You're doomed if you do and doomed if you don't.
    This is the sequel to Devil's Bargain (Red Letter Days - Book 1).
    In the first book I felt Caine had made a strong link to the older end of the YA market. This series has just the right amount of danger and spice without crossing the boundaries.
    The focus in the first book was on Jazz and Borden, in this one we get a taste of Ben and Luzia. The team has begun to understand that they have been drawn into a game that they can neither win nor lose and whether they like it or not those red letters keep on coming.
    I think Caine dropped the ball in the last few chapters, especially the last one.
    It was rushed and read like a scene from a soap opera. The author is going to have to be careful to keep that paranormal and sci-fi element rolling withing falling back into the excitable clutches of teenage angst ridden plots.
    One thing I really want to grumble about is Luzia's reaction to Ben when she finds out the truth. I mean really which self respecting adult female finds out something like that and then acts as if it is as normal as making a ham sandwich.No anger at all, just an overall blind acceptance. That really got my goat.
    It seems as if Caine has quite a future planned for the unlikely warriors of time versus choice mixed with ill intent. Not sure how that is going to work logistically with certain elements that are yet to arrive, bu t I have every faith that Caine will deliver yet another enjoyable read.
    I received a free copy of this book for my review from NetGalley.

    Romantic suspense fans will enjoy this fine tale

    Though she knows he is a bad apple, private investigator Lucia Garzia wants to kick herself as she is attracted to former Kansas City cop Benjamin McCarthy, a convicted mass murderer however, she does not act on her feelings for him. He is freed from prison as new evidence sent to Lucia from a Fed proved his innocence of that crime, but that he was a corrupt cop taking money from the mob.----- When Lucia learns he works for the clandestine Cross Society that she has done some work for in fighting crime she sees this as her opportunity to get to know Ben better. He, on the other hand, distrusts everyone after his wrongful conviction prison stint, but is forced to work with Lucia on a weird case. Though desiring her, trust is critical in any relationship including crime fighting partnering and he has none.------ Lucia seems like the magnet for bad dudes as almost everyone she meets is a nasty criminal type ready to rape and or kill her. The case the lead duet become entangled in is fascinating as they go down some psychic channels however, it is the relationship professionally and personally that makes the investigation and the tale as he refuses to rely on anyone for anything including love although she ultimately got him freed from incarceration. Romantic suspense fans will enjoy this fine tale even if there are too many villains for two super sleuths to deal with.----- Harriet klausner
