Then by chance Chloe discovers her employers are anything but the entrepreneurs they appear, and suddenly she knows far too much. Her clients are illegal arms dealers, and one of them is ordered to kill her. But instead, Bastien Toussaint drags Chloe away, and the next thing she knows she's on the run with the most terrifying and seductive man she's ever met. What were his motives - and would she live long enough to find out?

"This taut romantic suspense novel from RITA Award-winner Stuart delivers deliciously evil baddies and the type of disturbing male protagonist that only she can transform into a convincing love interest....Brilliant characterizations and a suitably moody ambience drive this dark tale of unlikely love." (Publishers Weekly)
I bought this book just because it was on sale & I needed something to listen to @work but THIS IS REALLY GOOD! I'm surprised I enjoyed it...good story but I wish it could have gone on some more.
I started the first two chapters three times to make sense of all the characters introduced. After that, the story did flow and was enjoyable. The narrator did an excellent job on all the characters except the heroine. Chloe was a 23 year old with a forty-year old voice. I did enjoy the sarcasm of the hero. However, I probably won't buy another Anne Stuart novel because of the over-use of the "F" word. Seems to cheapen the relationship between the two main characters.
Anne Stuart is a very capable writer, although it is difficult to tell based on this book. Her talents are clearly displayed in her "House of Rohan" series (not for the faint of heart). Skip this one, though.
Very mundane. I couldn't wait for it to be over. I'm not sure why I didn't give up on this sooner. It was so predictable this story drove me crazy. Sure glad it wasn't longer.
