An overworked undercover agent desperately in need of rest, Chrysalyn Geyer couldn’t have been more miffed with her boss. What was she supposed to do on a mandatory three month vacation? Stuck on a private residence cruise ship, she tried to prepare herself for what was sure to be pure boredom. Then he appeared—Rahn Benson. What the hell was he doing here? And while her spirit guide was happy to see the man, Chrys couldn’t see past knocking him senseless for breaking her heart.

Rahn is determined to do anything to win Chrys back. But first he must protect her from the unseen threat quietly stalking her from port to port. Rahn was damned good at job, but could he “work” his way past Chrys’ stubbornness to occupy a place in her heart, rather than just her bed?

Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, and violence. Full-length novel. Released by previous publisher.


Review:  If I could give this book a negative, I would.  Is that harsh?  Not for this book.

Chrysalyn is an agent who is overworked.  Her boss sends her on a vacation, a 3 month cruise.  Bored out of her mind, she tries to find ways to entertain herself.   Of course, in walks her ex-boyfriend and love of her life, Rahn.   I am sure you can guess what happens from here.   Rahn wants her back, Chrys fights it but can’t because she is still in love, they have sex and live happily ever after.

The only interesting part of the book is the fact that both Rahn and Chrys have spirit guides.  Of course, we aren’t told why they do or how they got them.  And while the possibility could have been magnificent, the reader is left with…well, nothing.

The dialogue is contrived and weird.  Between Rahn and Chrys, between the two spirit guides and every other character involved in the book.  It’s eye rolling bad, to be honest.  And there is the Bad Guy, who really adds nothing to the story and has conversations with statues that he keeps in his room.  He adds the “suspense” to the book, although it really isn’t suspenseful since we know about it from the very beginning.

The warning about explicit sex was unneeded because while there is a lot of sex in the story (because that is all reunited people do, right?), it’s boring.  The same thing, over and over.  And then the spirit guides get into the act and well, sex between two lions isn’t anything I need described to me…in any detail.

I’m not exactly sure what could have made this book better.  When the book was re-released, I wish the author had decided to rewrite it also.
