Publisher's Summary

She just witnessed her uncle's murder, she's running for her life, and now Dr. Katelyn Lyda is face-to-face with a breathtaking man who could be her salvation. Tall, sexy, his eyes full of mysterious promises, he seems to have the answer she needs.

It's too bad Sebastian Caine is one of the bad guys....

A "recovery specialist" skilled at separating prized possessions from their owners, Sebastian is after an ancient relic. But he reconsiders the job when he finds himself staring at the wrong end of a gun. The beautiful lady with her finger on the trigger seems to have everything he needs - and not just the artifact. Sebastian's conscience has never bothered him before - but then he has never wanted any woman more.

With her life in jeopardy, Kat wonders how far she can trust Sebastian Caine...how long she can resist him...and dare she fall in love?

Waiting for the movie

I don’t enjoy sappy romantic novels, and I don’t always want to hear the detailed description of a sexual encounter. This book is neither of those things. There was enough romance, mystery and action to keep me intrigued and entertained, while rooting for the love story.

Loved It

Simply put I loved this book. I love the way the author weaves a story of mystery with a little romance thrown in. This story like the previous two I've listened to takes the listener into worlds. societies and cultures most can only dream about. This author is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Kim Staunton did a great job narratoring. Two thumbs up ladies.

First time reading anything by this author

Liked the story but the narrator voice did not benefit the experience. I found myself cringing at one point because her voice was so rote.

Good book but…

I really enjoyed this audiobook and the story was very engaging. The narrator, Kim Staunton, IS NOT GOOD.

Good plot, but hard to listen to.

i liked the storyline and the plot, but I couldn't get past the narrators lack of proper pausing and inflections. It was very distracting and made the story line hard to follow. Why did he keep calling her HONEY, all the time? I kept yelling "stop calling her honey!". It was used inappropriately, too much and even after he dejected her. One last thing, an author is supposed to be descriptive, but too much is too much! Describe the scene and what is happening, dont just pepper in descriptors when not needed. "Her eyes were erect"? What?

The narration was awful!

The story line was a good one, and in the hands of the right narrator, this would have been a highly rated novel. The narrator had an odd cadence. Throughout the entire book there were mispronounced words and pauses every 4 or 5 words that were like commas in the middle of statements. It sounded like a dry run that should have been re-read for publication. I will never listen to this narrator again.

Romance isn't really my bag!


I picked up this book, based solely on one of my Goodreads friend's dynamite review! Romance is definitely not my bag, but Dr Katelyn (Kat for short) sounded like the kind of woman I'd enjoy reading about... so against my better judgment, I quashed my reservations, and went ahead and purchased the book!
Unfortunately for me, the book didn't live up to my friends review, and despite the quite excellent narration, I never could connect with the characters. Sure, Kat was tough, and smart, but she was also terribly one-tracked at times, causing her to make obviously flawed decisions... and well, the other characters just didn't do it for me, either. I found the story interesting enough... it had sharp dialog, and plenty of action to keep the story moving along... but the sexually tense romance was Soooooo dragged out, and so slow of a burn, that by the time they got around "to it", I was already Way bored! Luckily that scene wasn't too explicit or drawn out... but...  Wooof. Finally, with sex outta the way, the author gamely got back to writing up the conclusion to her suspenseful tale!
