Lucas Vieira needs a translator to seal a high-profile business deal, and also a woman to pose as his girlfriend to fend off a colleague’s over-eager wife - so why not kill two birds with one stone? Translator Caroline Hamilton jumps at the chance to earn some decent money. But when she meets her client she realises she may be out of her depth. The powerful Brazilian seems to be interested in more than her brains.... But is the price of passion just too high?

Best part - plenty of passion.
I least liked the transparency of the book - it really only has a slight pretense to a plot. Personally I prefer romance with more contextualisation of the characters, to make them more believable... e.g. at one point the female protagonist has to leave home to avoid being burgled/possibly attacked; she packs virtually nothing and then seems quite happy to stay with a man who she hardly knows for an unknown period of time. Practicalities seem to be forgotten.
Yes I would. I've read reviews of her books and they sound great. Maybe this wasn't the best one to start with (it's the first of hers that I've listened to).
Hmmm.... not sure about that. Her voice is a bit... callow. I'd prefer a more mature voice.
Wait for other Sandra Morton audiobooks to become available for listening in my country. There are so many books off limits to us here in Australia.
Overall a light, unchallenging read. Good for indulgence in a world of passion. Not sure that I'll listen to it more than once.
