Alicia (is beyond tired of your *ish)
I'm having a hard time rating this one. I kind of want to give it five stars for my enjoyment of it – I read nearly the entire second half of the book in one sitting! – but it doesn't quite reach that level.

This is another Harlequin Romantic Suspense that is completely hamstrung by that ridiculously low, arbitrary word limit for this type of story. I'm not sure why they have that limit and why this was published under that line instead of Lovelace writing the book full out and getting it publis
Double Deception was a decent OMEGA book about "Blade" and Victoria who have been circling each other for years and when they are handed a mission dealing with the lost Russian Amber Room sparks fly. Victoria doesn't like or trust Blade's reputation with women having an ex just like that. One thing I disliked was how quick Blade was to distrust her and then bam suddenly all is fine.
I kind of also didn't like the knife pulling thing, it got old and I didn't get where Blade's mistrust came from an
The matter of the Amber Room in Russia has long interested me, perhaps because I find amber itself so fascinating. That means that I've also seen documentaries on TV about this lost treasure. While I was in Vienna, Austria I went to see Schoenbrunn Palace just outside the city, which also has a room decorated with a lot of amber. After seeing it, I wondered how much more beautiful the other must have been.

The setting (post- Cold War Russia) and the suspense plot centering on the mysterious disappearance of the Amber Room definitely got my attention. I loved the mood of the story and the spy vs. spy action. However, the relationship between the leads left something to be desired. Here's my TBR Challenge 2012 column on the book:

This is the 10th installment in Lovelace's Code Name Danger series. It is Blade's and Rebel's story.
I really liked this book a lot. It kept me on my toes. I like a story where it takes the whole book to solve a mystery.
another "spy" book, but this one involves a favorite WWII mystery of mine, the disappearance of the Amber Room.
