This book is listed as having a 2012 publication date yet has been in the Romantic Times best 200 list since 1980. How many people are being conned into thinking this is a new book?

Mystery Intrigue Action Daring-Liaison The first description that comes to mind is “Thriller”…second is “Sensual”.  The situations keep you riveted wanting to know more… “How is she/he/them going to get out of this!  Lots of scheming diversity.  Oh yeah, and lot of apprehension!

Action, adventure, crazy sexy crazy guy, jungles, guns, corrupt police...it doesn't stop in this novel.

This hero had a lot of baggage, and I guess we¿re supposed to excuse his mean attitude (which doesn¿t improve much over the course of the story), out of sympathy for him. It doesn¿t work. The writer does keep you on the edge with the story line itself. I just prefer a hero, with or without past ghosts, to still be portrayed in a better light. He could have been abrupt and still have had a conscience. After the second time he calls the heroine a b---h, I knew what I was in for. It was as if we¿re never supposed to like him. And there were many ¿emotion¿ repetitions. Like ¿I wish I had a penny for every time he said¿¿ This was an interesting story, but I did contemplate putting it down for something that makes you feel good. It¿s definitely not a keeper.

Do yourself a favor and read this fantastic book. A very fast-paced plot, two incredible lovers, good story theme, and very intriguing. Karen Robards always knows how to capture her audiences. It's a must- read.
