Synopsis: Would you jump off the USS Constitution into Boston Harbor with a perfect stranger? You would if that stranger was hot shot Scotland Yard detective Chauncey Miller, the usual tall-dark-handsome type, especially since he has an assassin with a score to settle who just caught up with him…

Decorator Sophia Alano’s career gets side-tracked from the moment she meets hot shot Chauncey. He's on the run from a madman terrorist out for revenge when Sophia ends up targeted too. Now he must protect this spitfire while they're hunted wherever they go. They escape to London to outwit the madman. But once Chauncey catches their would-be killer, how do they go back to the lives they had before?

Review: I'd like to thank Black Lion Tours for allowing me to host a review on their tour. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
I enjoyed reading this book. It was a light, quick, fast paced read. You can't get much faster paced than jumping off the USS Constitution in the third chapter. I liked Chauncey and Sofia, although I did have a little trouble "hearing" the British accent in Chauncey's voice.
Although it happens to be the way of the world right now with the Middle East in such conflict, it was predictable that the terrorist would be Middle Eastern. I would have liked to see something a little more different.
However, that is my only issue with the book. It was a great read otherwise.
