Aww, finally some answers as to why the delicious MY book-boyfriend, Roarke, loves Eve so much.

“Can I watch while you hit him? You know how it excites me to see you pound on someone.”
….

He knew there was nothing, nothing more arousing than the surrender of a strong woman, that melted-bone yielding of a tough body.
….

“When we get home,” he began as they walked down to street level, “you can… reprimand me.”

“Keep your mind off sex.”

“Why? It’s so happy there.”

Oh, yeah. He likes strong women.

We can produce another human inside of our bodies. That is one helluva superpower.

The crime in this book has to do with illegal organ harvesting. Someone is stealing diseased organs from the homeless and the hookers. They needed those things!

Unfortunately for Eve, the person or people responsible are willing to do anything to stop her investigation. She goes through the wringer with this one and it shows us another side to her and another side to her relationship with Roarke. And, although there were a little too many feelings in this book for me, I still really loved the new dimensions that they brought to the characters. It was definitely one of the best books of the series, so far.

review of another edition

My only complaint about these books is that we don’t get enough Eve and Roarke time. I know, I know she is bogged down in the investigations. Saying that, when they do get together, things are pretty steamy.

The bodies are piling up. In her research Eve uncovers similar crimes in several cities that were dropped under mysterious circumstances, Dallas knows she’s facing a killer cruel enough to prey on the weakest in society and powerful enough to conspire an extensive coverup. To complicate mat



The bodies are piling up. In her research Eve uncovers similar crimes in several cities that were dropped under mysterious circumstances, Dallas knows she’s facing a killer cruel enough to prey on the weakest in society and powerful enough to conspire an extensive coverup. To complicate matters further, Dallas faces an equally troubling threat to her career when she’s linked to the death of a fellow cop.

“Lieutenant.” Ireland whispered, silky and romantic, in his voice.
“An unexpected pleasure.”

Roarke. Not sure what to say. He seems perfect to me. His patience and love with Eve is wonderful and she is slowly thawing and realizing that she is worthy of his love and devotion.

“Was he wearing a tux?”
Peabody had seen Roarke in a tux. The image of it was etched on her mind like acid on glass.
“Man” Peabody closed her eyes … “Man.” she repeated.
“You know a lot of women would get pissed off at having their husband star in their aide’s purient little fantasies.”
“But you’re bigger than that, Lieutenant. I like that about you.”

I love Eve but I love Peabody too. Great partnership they have.

“I never saw much snow as a boy.
Dublin’s for rain.”


But someone is not happy with Eve’s progress with the investigations and she needs to be stopped.

As she stood pale as death in the pale winter light, her eyes glazed, dark, and, he thought, impossibly young. The strength, the tough edge she wore as naturally as her weapon, was gone.

“What I have with you, darling Eve, I never thought to have with anyone. Never thought to want it or to need it.”


Time to decide if I will continue with this series or take a wee break. Decisions, decisions.
