Though badly hurt, Nell emerges from the nightmare a woman transformed. Delicate surgery gives her an exquisitely beautiful face, and rehabilitation gives her a strong, lithe body. Nicholas Tanek, a mysterious stranger who compels both fear and fascination, gives her a reason to go on living: revenge - at any price.
With his shadowy past and more secrets than Nell could ever imagine, Tanek knows far more about the attack than he's willing to confess. Yet when he divulges the identity of her assailant, he makes the biggest mistake of his life. For as Nicholas gets closer to his quarry, he'll find his carefully laid plans jeopardized at every turn by a bold woman daring to strike out on her own. And Nell will find her mission imperiled by Tanek - a temptation to which she cannot afford to surrender.

I really enjoyed this book, it was some what predictable in parts but a entertaining read and it made my day go much quicker, I would suggest this book for anyone who thinks on the power of women that don't think they can change there lives until they are in situations beyond there control and then they see the power that is inside and take charge of life again or for the first time. this was also a fun romance a little different but a good change
The main character in the book felt as many of us do a lot of the time because of what someone says to us. I liked the tenacity of the character in pursuing her goal. Book recommended by my sister-in-law as the best she had read. It lived up to her recommendation. I enjoyed the book very much.
This was my first Iris Johansen book, I don't know what her other books are like, but I enjoyed this one.
Content - The characters were tough. Tanek was a hard-as-nails match for Nell, the soft female bent on revenge. I found the transformation and characters interesting. I like that the transformation and hunt for revenge are the primary focus of the story, not the romance.
Recording ? Robin Mattson, the reader, does a fine job, but her rough voice made it sometimes difficult to discern who was speaking.
