Absorbing read.  The King Maker by Susan Frances had me engulfed in the story entrenched in the illicit operations of a secret society involved in credit card fraud, and the one man who goes out on a limb to expose them.  Cullen Danes is an ideal hero, he’s smart, sexy and devoted to the people he loves.  When his friend Steve McKenna is murdered by an operative of the crime ring, Cullen uses his skills as an investigator for the British Aviation Ministry to find Steve’s killer.  He comes close to suffering the same fate as his friend until Nina Holt interrupts the crime ring’s plans and helps Cullen to escape their grasp, a reversal of the damsel in distress theme. The story evolves naturally as Cullen and Nina join forces to find Steve’s killer.  A romance blossoms as the pair work side by side discovering each other’s likes and desires.  The only obstacle is they live on separate continents.  Can they settle for a long distance relationship or will they go their separate ways?  Going through Nina and Cullen’s experience is part of the fun and opens the reader’s mind to stepping out of a certain comfort zone and finding safety by jumping into welcoming arms.
