These books definitely get better as the series goes on. This is the first book - we meet Eve Dallas, and then Roarke enters the scene, as a potential suspect in a murder case. He then proceeds to act like a creepy stalker, "wooing" Eve despite her telling him she's not interested several times (I think this is supposed to be not creepy because we can see inside her head and we know she's secretly fascinated, but come on - Roarke doesn't know that.)

He goes on about her secret sadness and troubled past, he knows she was raped, and then the first time they're in bed together, he clasps her arms and holds them forcibly above her head - and despite her protests, keeps them there. And then she realises she enjoys it. Nice.

I barely remember the murder - the book is much more about the love affair between Eve and Roarke, and it irritated me so much that it overshadowed everything else.
