A friend recommended this book to me, knowing I like both mysteries and romances, and I am so glad she did Anna Leyton is a Metropolitan Police Detective in London on assignment to Interpol In the tradition of romances, she meets her man by pure chance well, almost , competing for a London cab on one of those rainy evenings when cabs are scarce When she shares a cab with Freddie La Salle and breathing in his male fragrance and his aura of something her life has already undergone the change that [...]
Calin delivers a knockout punch I doubted that I d enjoy a mystery novel about boxing but this one surprised me Anna Leyton, the daughter of a rich boat builder, diverges from the family business and becomes a police officer liaison with Interpol It s a dangerous job dealing with the seedy underbelly of London, and she s just recovering from a disastrous car chase that almost ended her career No wonder Anna concealed her profession when she shared a taxi ride with a sexy Frenchman Freddie is a b [...]
I started this novel with high hopes, some of which were engendered by the delectable torso on the front cover However, I found it pretty unbelievable.The dialogue was stilted and the heroine who is supposed to be English uses words such as gonna and wanna which are distinctly Americanisms I had the impression that English is not the writer s first language.There was no real sense of time or space around the characters with scant imagery to set scenes and I think the investigation becomes messy [...]

Great storyline, a bit different from what I m used to You could definitely tell the author isn t American The language was a bit different, and it was a little hard to understand some of the subtleties It also seemed of a sophisticated read than most romantic suspense that I normally come across I d definitely recommend this to both contemporary and romantic suspense fans.
