This book was action packed from the very beginning. You were thrown into action and adventure throughout the whole book.I loved all the Aztec stories, and legends wound into the story, it was wonderful and intriguing. The characters were well developed and had depth, the relationship in the story actually had time to bloom but was still a little quick for me. The main characters Raine and McCord were both driven, determined and stubborn which made for a wonderful dialogue between the two.
I was hoping for more. I really, really enjoyed Nicholson's early Superromance work (the 23rd Man and Scent of a Woman are some of my favourite books) and hoped that her moving into the 'Bombshell' line would give her more freedom to excel. It didn't, and while this book was ok, there was nothing exceptional about it. The action sequences in the last quarter were especially muddy.
