The title looks promising - barter - like a deal - some kind of negotiation - a person has something of value and exchanges it for something else. That never happened in this story. The TSL heroine basically rode the waves of misfortune, until the tide turned and the hero showed up. No deals - no negotiations - she was at the whims of fortune.

The story opens with poor little rich girl working in a strip club in South America after she had been duped, robbed and abandoned by her "fiance," forced

This book has a different storyline for a HP. Chellie is a poor little rich girl who's kept on a tight leash by her cruel, unloving father. She runs off with a man who she thinks truly loves her, but only wants her money. He uses her and abandons her, and she ends up in the clutches of a prostitution ring run out of a seedy bar. For now, she's singing to pay her way, but it wouldn't be long before they were forcing her into prostitution. A blond stranger shows up at the bar and asks for a ...more

this was nice! der was a tensed atmosphere between hero and heroine as they were very attracted to each other from the first. i felt for chellie. she had been through so much because she fell for ramon who only wanted her money. it was rather vague and i wished the author had given us the full story of what really happened. ash was the modern james bond and i appreciated how he cared for chellie and gradually took her out of her cage/shell.

I don't's so hard to figure out how the heroine in Sara Craven novels ever fall in love with the this case, what good qualities does Chellie see in Ash? I mean, other than that he saved her... I get so conflicted. Part of me likes them, but after awhile they start feeling formulaic....

Sotto il sole dei Caraibi (italiano) contenuto nella raccolta "Natale ai Caraibi"
Aveva tutti i presupposti per essere un bel libro... ma il mistero e l'azione delle prime pagine, sono svanite subito per lasciare il posto ad una storia piuttosto prevedibile e un po' piatta.

There is only a couple words that can sum up this novel perfectly for me and they are. "I was SOOO bored!"
