Despite a rushed climax, Take Me There presents two thoroughly interesting and compatible characters, whose mix in personalities creates some entertaining moments. Though the story is engaging, Esdaile accelerates the last few chapters, which could leave readers breathless with feelings of abandonment. Readers may feel that too much time is spent on minor details and ponder where the rest of the story went.

With the IRS hot on his heels, pop star Jacques Bernard Dubois needs a prayer and a miracle. Both come in the form of leggy CPA Karin Michaels. Unexpected circumstances leave Karin balancing his books on the tropical island of St. Lucia and trying to fend off one powerful attraction. Having just ditched her straitlaced boyfriend, however, Karin may find the motivation to let loose with Jacques. (Dafina, Oct., 304 pp., $6.99)
