My Review:

Sadie Stewart is a drop-dead gorgeous supermodel who’s traveled the world and been on the cover of countless magazines. Even though she’s aging gracefully, she’s almost approaching thirty and the bell is tolling. Time to think about her future and her cover. Sadie leads a double life... she’s a CIA operative.

She’s on the hunt of a crazed arms dealer on the hunt to steal rare Egyptian artifacts. He believes these amulets will bring him the power he needs. She needs to get closer to him, to earn his trust using any means necessary (hint: feminine wiles) and to prevent the theft. It’s going along swimmingly until she runs into Sebastian Wilde.

The attraction is instant and the sparks fly hotter than either of them is prepared for. Sadie has a job to do and she doesn’t need handsome Sebastian saving her every time she turns around.

Sebastian, on the other hand, knows there is something about Sadie, something he just can’t shake. One thing leads to another and soon the both of them are in over their heads. Can he save her or will it be too late?

The plot is fast paced and filled with twists and turns I didn’t expect. I was glued to my tablet. This is a must read for anyone who loves romantic suspense. The historical background on Egyptian art fascinated me and the author did a superb job with the research. The ending had a slight cliff hanger but I was okay with it because it just whet my appetite for the next book.

Favorite Character/Quote:

“A lion of a man, he bristled with intensity and purpose befitting a general in an inter-galactic war.”
