Intro: Pardon me if this review comes off a little wonky. I have a cold and have been Nyquiling it up. Not exactly the smartest thing ever but it was necessary. I am a giant baby when I am sick.
I have been wanting to read a good romantic suspense for a while. I have been on a steady diet of historical romance and Anne of Green Gables for the past month so this is a nice break.
Heroine: Camille-This is one of those rare instances where I had trouble with both the hero and the heroine. I liked Camille. I did. She was incredibly strong and capable. I did love the pragmatic way she looked at life. But I had a few moments in the book where I wanted to plonk her on the head for being too impulsive and taking unneccessary risks.
Hero: Drago-I had a bit more difficulty with Drago. First of all, his name. I kept imagining Draco Malfoy for some reason and it kind of took me out of the book. Also, it took me a while to make any sort of connection with him. I eventually did but it took me longer than usual. But I eventually came around. I love how he was a voice of reason for Camille. It’s usually the other way around.
Chemistry: This is what really got me into the book. They had such intense chemistry. I absolutely loved the flashbacks of their weekend together. I don’t think I would have had a complete understanding of their relationship without it. It added a heat where it would have otherwise been sort of tepid.
Conclusion: I’ve never read a Patricia Rosemoor book before but I think I will have to. I enjoyed this one a great deal. I also think I will buy a copy for my mother. She loves romantic suspense of this sort and will adore this one.
With 90 novels and more than seven million books in print, Patricia Rosemoor is fascinated with "dangerous love" – combining romance with danger. She has written various forms of romantic and paranormal romantic thrillers, even romantic horror, bringing a different mix of thrills and chills to her stories.
Patricia has won a Golden Heart from Romance Writers of America and two Reviewers Choice and two Career Achievement Awards from RT BOOKreviews, and in her other life, she teaches Popular Fiction and Suspense-Thriller Writing, credit courses at Columbia College Chicago.
