Walker's latest effort is a steamy and solid read. There's plenty of hot sex and a little intrigue thrown in for good measure. While the main characters are likable, the heroine at times seems to be nothing more than a pawn trapped in the midst of a family feud. Though the book occasionally lingers, there is just enough suspense to make you wonder how it will end.
Kristina is soon whisked away to Spain, where she quickly meets Nicolas, Sergio's equally seductive brother, to whom she also feels an immediate connection. Kristina soon is in the middle of a dark game of deception -- one where things are never quite what they seem. (Heat, Jul., 309 pp., $15.00)
