The story starts ominously, and I knew right away that something was off. That didn’t lessen the suspense, though – quite the contrary. Throughout the book, I kept guessing and wondering; sometimes I was right, sometimes I wasn’t, and that made the story all the more enjoyable. Things moved slowly at first, then picked up speed and became more and more suspenseful. Right until the end, the author kept my attention.
As for Amy and Sid, they’re an interesting couple. Well matched and with a million sparks flying. I enjoyed the sexual tension between them and how their interaction in and out of bed changed slowly over the course of their relationship. Sid is irresistible, I want him for myself. And Amy has a lot of spunk and a fierce determination that match his own. I can’t say more without spoilers, but I really think they’re made for each other and for the role they’re supposed to play. I just wish there’d been more conflict between the two protagonists, more of a personal fight alongside the external action.
If you enjoy romantic suspense novels on the steamy side with a fast-paced plot and a taste of royalty, then you should give this book a try.
