** spoiler alert ** This one was a little disappointing---still entertaining, but a bit shaggy with loose ends that I can only hope will find resolution in the next book. I was also surprised to discover that the long-awaited consummation of Lee and Taro's relationship brought with it an abrupt cessation of all the fun almost-romantic moments between them. I'm sure that becoming lovers would change their dynamic, but did it have to eliminate the sense of tenderness and consideration that had come to characterize their partnership?

I am Bastet I had the exact same thought. The "finally!" moment when they had sex was totally made disappointing by the fact that after, the sexual tension dropped down to zero. You'd think there would be even more of that, because of the whole becoming lovers thing. Apparently not.

Kim I wondered whether it was Moore's choice to write it that way or if her editor wanted her to focus on the Plot-with-a-capital-P or if perhaps Moore simply didn't know how to write their relationship after the unresolved sexual tension became resolved. But I was so, so looking forward to watching the evolution of their relationship that its utter absence for the latter half of the book was a huge letdown.

Have you read the fourth in the series yet? Because she seems to regain her sense of their relationship in that one, thank goodness. Romance glutton that I am, I still wanted more, but it was much improved. :)

I am Bastet I haven't read the fourth one yet, but I definitely want to! Glad to hear it gets better :) I'm such a romance glutton, too.

Yeah, I wonder if maybe Moore's editor just wanted her to focus on plot, since the book was thicker than the first two and DID have rather a lot of plot in it. Or maybe she was trying to show Lee's attitude of being determined not to let it affect her or whatever...
