Publisher's Summary

Living paycheck to paycheck in Paris, American book translator Chloe Underwood would give anything for some excitement and passion - even a little danger. So when she's offered a lucrative weekend gig translating at a business conference in a remote château, she jumps at the chance to shake things up.

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?

What the Critics Say

"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."

    "Boring...."

    I tried to finish this book, but couldn't. It was just not interesting, not very well written, and bad characters. Don't waste your credit.....

    "Enjoyable plot; lots of foul language"

    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.

    "Boring"

    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.

    "Really? Very boring."

    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.
    Sorry.....don't bother.
