Readers put off by the raunchy sexual appetites and morals of some contemporary romance protagonists will enjoy this story of a lonely young widow who slowly gets under the skin of a misogynist mercenary until he discovers that love is the best thing that ever happened to him. More feminist readers, however, may find Macomber's hero, Cain Maclellan, rather irksome, as he appears to value lovely Linette Collins chiefly for her "softness" and gentleness. Cain's job involves rescuing various victims of Third World terrorists; and Linette, who lost her first husband to cancer, worries about her growing attraction to Cain because of his dangerous career. She does not, however, appear unduly troubled by the fact that he himself often kills others in order to achieve his objectives. Macomber (The Trouble with Angels) here throws together the traditional "family values" of Linette and her family and the rugged machismo of Cain and his co-workers into what ultimately seems like an uneasy mix, but her portrayal of a relationship that develops slowly and steadily despite a host of obstacles nevertheless can be convincing.

I enjoyed the intertwining characters’ stories. It made the novel more complex and rewarding. At the same time it let me get to know the characters on multiple levels. The dynamic among the members of the Deliverance Company was intriguing. Their lives and the personal realisations that they each came to were quite revealing. The women in this novel were also fantastic. They were so different yet so real. I loved seeing everyone’s different outlook on life.
Macomber’s writing will never go out of style. She’s once again created a sweet novel that has wound its way into my heart.

The first few chapters were sort of confusing, too. She starts the story of introducing two characters, and then just when you start to really get into it, she switchs to two new set of characters. It goes on like that through most of the book, and frankly.....it drove me crazy. I'm sorry to say this, but this is a far cry from what I've come to respect and enjoy about this author.
