This book was annoying, not worth reading, and a disappointment. It is unbelievable that Linda Howard published this -- it seems half-finished! I skimmed a lot of it -- it rambled, and the people were not characterized well. I have read every L.H. book (i think), and usually love her stories, but this was awful.
Perhaps she needs a rest? Is she cranking out too many stories?
Since the time when I ordered this book, Amazon has filled most of the first descriptive screen for this book with reviews from the publisher to cover the fact that this book has (in general) been blasted out of the water by loyal Howard fans. If you like Howard, skip this novel and read everything pre-1995.
At the end of the book, she obviously is setting the reader up to buy the sequel -- very rude considering this book didn't feel complete in itself. Is she trying to garner sales? Was this done by her publisher?
HERE'S AN IDEA -- write a good story and you won't have to lure peop! le.

This so-called suspense story by an author who won an award for Best Sensual Romance is simply terrible. Howard may be a favorite romance author, but she must never ever again venture into "suspense" or mystery. The book jacket reads: "A riveting masterpiece of suspense." The publishers, Pocket Books, should be ashamed of themselves. If this had been billed as a romance novel, I could have known to avoid it. A mystery it is not. Nor is it suspense. If one is prejudiced and believes that superficial "romance" novels are trash, then this is trash. If, however, the readers want superficial, poorly crafted romance novels, perhaps then this is the book to read. But do not ever again, publishers, market her books as suspense or mystery. -K. Feig-

This had to be Howards worst novel ever(with the exception of all that glitters). The characters were dull, and two sided. The plot was much too long. The romance between the two characters seemed to be unreal. They spoke maybe twice before the were in love. Realism is good to have in a novel. If you want a good Howard novel, try dream man. Don't waste your money on this piece of garbage.
