Cael Traylor is a super-hero: he's gorgeous, speaks lots of languages (including "Southern"), has limitless martial skills, and was trained by no less than Mossad. Nowadays, he and his team - all of whom are unusually good-looking, smart, well-heeled and fun to be around - take assignments in surveillance. Jenner Redwine is a former blue-collar worker who won one of the biggest lotteries anywhere and is now rich enough to buy a small country, but she hasn't found a place where she seems to fit. Jenner gets in Cael's way, literally - his team was supposed to be in her stateroom on a cruise, but the paranoid bad guy arranges a swap at the last minute. Cael solves this in true "Romanceland" style: her friend is kidnapped onshore, and Cael kidnaps her on the cruise. She must pretend to be in love, giving him an excuse to be in her stateroom, and there are endless situations that develop, including the feisty heroine handcuffed to the muscular hero all night.

That said, if you are a Howard fan this book will probably be a struggle to get through in the middle of the book, but keep going. The end is good. ( )

Good book. Good characters. Enjoyed it the whole thing! ( )

I've been disappointed in most of LH's more recent releases, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It reminded me quite a bit of All the Queen's Men. Kind of light on the romance and heavy on the storyline, but still oddly satisfying.

I was concerned that the resolution between Jenner and Cael wouldn't be quite satisfactory, but I was pleased with the way it turned out. I felt we got to know both characters and they worked well together.

The storyline was interesting b/c it took place almost exclusively on a cruise ship. The suspense plot didn't contain much mystery - the villain was introduced almost immediately - but it still worked. I'm sure if I thought long enough I could find plenty of holes in the story, but the truth is I was entertained enough that I didn't care. ( )
