READ THE BLURB
Simon Trent is a burnt-out Interpol agent who disappeared after his last case turned fatal. But with the resurgence in smuggling and all signs pointing to the man who once escaped his grasp, he comes out of hiding to finish the job that’s haunted him for years. What he doesn’t see coming is Claire, the beautiful and headstrong reporter who may be a threat to his case—and to his heart.
As Claire and Simon reluctantly join forces to unravel a mystery that reaches deep into her family history and may be his only chance at redemption, they must fight to stay one step ahead of a brutal killer—and one step away from the dangerous feelings building between them.
READ THE REVIEW
Looking for a thrill ride of a book that has a little romance to go along with it? Intent to Kill might be the perfect fit. It takes place in Cambodia, a place I'm not in the least bit familiar with, so was a change for me. The author does a good job setting things up, though, so we can "see" the area, the jungle, the hotel, the shops.
What did I like? Most everything. The plot is solid, the villain evil, the hero sexy and determined and flawed. The heroine is a bit naïve but sweet and intelligent and didn't suffer too much from the "too stupid to live" syndrome. They have good chemistry when they're finally together and I enjoyed them and the story.
What didn't I like? Occasionally the pacing slowed a little, and I wish the H/H had spent more time together from the start. Thankfully, the book is told in both the POV of the hero and the heroine (as well as some other secondary characters). The author does a good job letting us know who's head we were in and I didn't catch any sign of significant head hopping which I appreciated.
All in all a solid story with just enough romance to keep my heart happy. I'd rate it 4 out of 5.
