Tabitha Graham and Devlin Colter meet on a cruise. With a bit of spy intrigue thrown in (only a bit), they begin a relationship that ends up in Port Townsend, Washington. Published in 1984, the book gives a hint of Jayne Ann Krentz's later style, subject matter, and characterization. The action and characters are fun and interesting as you follow them through their different styles for getting to know each other. Tabitha is an observer with little self-confidence. Dev is an agent with a great de ...more

The best part of this book was the heroine’s humorous attempts at seducing the hero by talking about the mating habits of medieval mythical creatures. Other than that and the hero’s deceptions at the beginning of their relationship, the book was a tad boring.

These Stephanie James series romances don’t seem to stand up well over time. The sex scenes are cheesy with roll-your-eyes writing. I don’t think I’ll be reading any more of the author’s older work, but I’ll probably give her newer paranorma

This book was so funny. Tabitha mets Devlin when she finds him in an alley bruised and bloodied. They were both from the same cruise ship and it seemed like her fellow passenger was attacked. Tabitha is a nice sweet person. She rescues Dev and continues to take care of him while he's recovering from his injuries.

The part that's so funny is Tabitha's interest in fantastical beast and her discussions with Dev. Also her assumptions that Dev is a nice sweet shy man. It was kind of embarrassing how

Humorous seduction scenes and a manipulative hero, but otherwise boring. Read the review at Alpha Fangirl.

Fun and entertaining, for the most part. The way the heroine seduced the hero was a nice example of JAK's talent for creating quirky characters and situations. The spy storyline was a little goofy in a way slightly reminiscent of Scarecrow and Mrs. King. And all of this is probably why I was so disappointed by the forced seduction (aka assault) scene at the end. It didn't seem authentic to the characters or the storyline (and it's really not my thing).
