There was no doubt that the woman who called herself Evie Shaw was the key to the high-tech conspiracy that threatened Robert Cannon's computer company - and he meant to take her down personally. But as he trailed her into the heart of a long, hot Southern summer, he found himself questioning everything he believed. For he was face to face with a breathtaking passion - for a woman who had to be as guilty as sin....

Evie will not trust him again.....she feels used and hurt. Robert finds all the money in the world cannot buy respect love and trust. Now he must find a way to start over with Evie. This is a very good romance. it starts slow and at times Robert is too ruthless but his overbearing Type A personality shows in his every move. Evie takes his every challenge and lands on her feet ....as a heroine she is great. One of the better early Linda Howard Romances. tie into Duncan's Bride with Robert Canon being the brother of Madelyn........I give this 4 STARS~ Lesa Lockford does a good job for presentation. look for Come Lie with Me in April by Dreamscape Media Audio by Linda Howard.
Both main characters were hard to like, especially Robert. The narrators interpretation of Evie made her sound old and slightly stupid. Overall not it was a hard book to finish.
Robert from Book 1 has a Thief in his Organization and he thinks he has caught her. He just needs the proof on camera. Robert is a very cut and dry - black and white - in or out kind of guy. He has convicted Evangeline before he has even met her. Then when he does met her, well, then the story really gets going...(I wouldn't dare ruin it for you)
Love this story. Linda Howard writes such strong female characters that it is hard not to become enraptured with them. The narrator did an excellent job of giving each character their own life and breathing a depth into the story. One of my favorite stories.
Not necessarily but the audio version allows me to get other things done and still be able to appreciate the story.
In someways it is like Duncan's bride but still the storylines are different enough to be enjoyable and not just a repeat. It's that alpha male thing .
The comparison of the performances are the same she did a great job.
Not an extreme reaction just an enjoyable one.
I felt it was well worth the credit, and I will read other Linda Howard books.
The narrator was horrible but she completely ruined a book that could have been great. Producers, authors or whomever is in charge of selecting narrator, selecting the right narrator ( for an audio book) is as important as the book itself. At times, the book was so boring, It was hard to finish it.
