Publisher's Summary

Whitney MacAllister has all the wealth, power, and beauty anyone could ever wish for, and is therefore profoundly bored. Enter Douglas Lord, a good-looking, street-smart thief, who brings Whitney into his world of high adventure and murderous rivals. They come to a business agreement: Whitney will bankroll Douglas on an expedition to retrieve the legendary lost treasure of a long-dead Madagascar queen; in exchange, Whitney will get to come along and keep half the money once they have gained their prize. What neither of them bargains for is the growing attraction they feel for each other. Though they don't have much in common, they find that they are meant for each other. Now, they must keep each other alive both for business and for pleasure.

Amazing Story Line

Well thought out with excelent dialogue. This book is a keeper. Fun, entertaining and sexy, Nora Roberts can be a little slow at times, but this was by far one of her best novels. A+

Good Listen

I love Nora Roberts and had read this book (but quite some time ago) so listening to it again brought it all back. She is a great storyteller and this one had a great adventure. I hope you give it a try you'll enjoy.

Major Disappointment

A waste of time but I perservered because I really enjoy Nora Roberts books. Don't make the same mistake I did. Trite and predictable.

More Nora Roberts Please!

just the right amount of thrills, romance and humor - I agree that the ending was a bit too... abrupt? tidy? I don't know - I'm no writer! but it didn't seem to live up to the potential she had developed. Overall, though, I really enjoyed the story very much. Loved that "bad guy/good guy" hero thing. Irresistible!

Entertaining to the max

I just finished this book and thought that it was wonderful. The interplay between the characters was unique and yet classic. The adventures that they got into was great and the tension between them lasted to the end.

Hot Ice

Reader tends to over do male lead making him sound less appealing. But once you get past that you will really enjoy this book

So funny...

This book saved my sister and I on a car trip from San Jose, CA to Nowhere, TX. We were laughing out loud at the dialogue between Whitney and Doug. The reader did Doug horribly, totally unsexy, but the book was good and you can ignore it.

cringe

The dialog was so contrived I could barely listen to it. The characters were luke warm and there was no believable build up of their going on an adventure together. without giving it away - they literally stumble on each other and the next thing you know off they go! the reader was awful at the male voices - it actually sounded as if she was making fun of their roles. If her other books are like this then I just read the last one. in a nutshell - yuck!
