Description

Kayla Shaw is a smart and capable private banker in Arizona. Rand McCree is a haunted man painting landscapes in the Pacific Northwest, burning with a need for answers. They are two strangers with nothing in common—until their lives entwine . . . and explode.

Everything changes for Kayla as she barely escapes a kidnapping attempt and finds herself accused of a shocking crime: the illegal laundering of hundreds of millions of dollars. Damned by lies and false "evidence," she is trapped. After five agonizing years, Rand has finally been offered the name of his twin brother's murderer. Hungry for vengeance, he accepts a job with St. Kilda Consulting that will place him in the killer's orbit . . . and tantalizingly close to Kayla Shaw, who has been targeted as the killer's next victim. Since she can't turn to the police, who believe she's guilty as sin, she must place her life in Rand McCree's hands.

Suspicious of one another, needing one another, they are two against the world as the violence of the past erupts in the present. And now innocence alone will not be enough to keep Kayla Shaw alive . . .

    Always love anything from Elizabeth Lowell....character connection was a little weaker than usual, but great plot and action!?

    I haven't read much of Elizabeth Lowell's work. This is only my second of her books and so far I have few complaints. I've read other reviews of this book that describe it as poor. I'm not certain why. It is hardly Pulitzer Prize quality literature, but as quick, fun reads go, it certainly fits the bill. I'm a bit of a stickler for details and this book did not present me with any overly absurd moments or utterly unbelievable characters. It is exactly what it is intended to be: fiction mingled with suspense.

    Another fast-paced, enjoyable read from Lowell. Not great literature, but a nice quick read for a relaxing weekend.

    Arizona investment banker Kayla Shaw is in over her head and sinking fast. She's just realized she's the fall-gal for a powerful billionaire with an international vita and bloody hands.Ex-idealist, ex-mercenary, landscape painter Rand McCree lost a brother to a gun-running Russian killer. Now the killer's resurfaced, and Rand's determined to take him down. St. Kilda's provides the connection, but as the bullets and the sparks start flying, Kayla and Rand both have a lot to learn about the wages of sin and innocence.In spite of the witty dialogue and likable enough characters, the story is hamstrung by cardboard cut-out villains, too much political detail and not enough plot. Predictable, trite, and mediocre. Read instead Tell me no lies or Diamond Tiger.

    No disappointment here!I'll start off by saying that I have read a fair amount of Elizabeth Lowell books. Overall, I didn't think this was one of Ms. Lowell's best books, but it was close to being the best and she didn't disappoint me in this terrific story. The story moved along at a brisk pace with me trying to anticipate what was going to happen next. Ms. Lowell ensure that the main characters Rand a Kayla were well defined and left no doubt in my mind that they were the key that made this story. This is a great late night read. Enjoy it.

    I really like her writing style. I'm so pleased that I just happened upon her; I like to find new authors.Now that I read some of the other reviews, I suppose I agree. But, having gone into reaidng this with NO expectations - it performed marvelously for me. A decent story (not sure if it's believeable, but not too corny that I had to put it down), plenty of character interaction/romance, plus some action/adventure/suspense.I also like the series. I did not read them in order, but I like the idea of the continuation of characters that series books offer.

    More of a romantic-thriller than romantic-suspense. Lots of guns blazing, a major international terrorist, money laundering, etc.I did find the banking side interesting, although I have no idea if it was made up or closely researched.The characters never really drew me in, although they were adequately written.The 3 stars is relative to its performance as an escapist romantic adventure book. It did fine. Not outstanding in any way, certainly no redeeming value, but a pleasant way to pass the time.

    Lowell delivers another exhilarating romantic thriller. Kayla is a banker who has been tricked into laundering money for an international arms dealer. Rand's twin brother was killed by this same man five years before. They team up with help from St. Kilda to stop him before he kills them.With fascinating dynamic characters, well reasoned motivations and plot lines, and decent writing, this book is highly recommended.
