Rating: 5 of 5 Stars


Quiet and introverted graduate student Nicole Kennedy has always longed to do something far more adventurous than study politics from used textbooks. But when she spontaneously sets off for Africa to volunteer as a teacher over the summer, she gets more excitement than she could have ever imagined. Within hours of arriving in Kenya, Nicole finds herself at the center of an international conspiracy involving millions of dollars and being rescued by beautiful but infuriatingly arrogant government agent Kira Anthony. Despite her suspicions that Kira may not be who she claims to be, Nicole can’t seem to fight her growing attraction to the beguiling blonde. Could it be the thrill, the danger, the close proximity that explains her feelings—or is it a glimpse of something she’s never known and can’t bear to lose?

Ameliah’s View:

Young Nicole Kennedy is a grad student with an inherited case of wanderlust. After her father’s murder years before she allowed her mother to keep her close to home, until now. She is off to Africa to teach English in an out of the way village for a few weeks. Well, that was the plan anyway until sexy and mysterious Kira Anthony kidnaps her in an attempt to keep her safe from the people who killed her father. There is only one no, make that two, problems. She doesn’t know who to trust and she is falling in love with her captor. Whatever will her mother think!

This was an intense, suspenseful mysterious adventure with enough twists and turns to keep me guessing. Even when I though I had figured it out and knew the truth, I found not all was so clear after all. This book kept me on the edge of my seat, then fidgeting and worrying the fringe on the couch pillow. I could not believe some of the things Nicole was doing, she was going to get herself killed if she didn’t wise up…. Oh Dear, Oh My, Eek! But it was too compelling, I could not stop reading!

This story had a bit of everything, murder, intrigue, cat and mouse spy games, erotic awakenings, sizzling sex, romance, tension and thrills….WHEW! It was just wonderful! Very, very well done Ms. Richards. I do so hope there is another book in the not too far future!!
