SPIES, LIES AND NAKED THIGHS
The talented Bacarr delivers another strikingly original, fast-paced romp highlighted by a smoking-hot hero and a sassy heroine. Her use of Breezy's first-person point of view adds an interesting edge and dimension to the proceedings.
Betrayed, framed for murder and left to languish in a Middle Eastern prison, archaeologist Breezy Malone has plenty of time to plot her revenge on Sharif, the man responsible for it all. Being broken out of her cage, recruited by the FBI and allowed license to do whatever's necessary, in and out of bed, gives her the means. Breezy's hot on Sharif's tail when she runs afoul of a seriously hot guy who gets in her way -- more than once. Who is this man, whom she nicknames One-Eyed Jack (because of his eye patch)? And what's his game? One thing's for sure: Breezy would like to get close enough to find out. But first she has a slimeball to catch -- and a precious artifact to reclaim!
