Maya Banks lives in Texas with her husband, three children and assortment of pets. When she's not writing, she can be found hunting, fishing or playing poker.
Samhain previously published this work of Banks's (Sweet Possession), with the same title, in 2007 under her pseudonym, Sharon Long. For this edition, the book has been reedited and parts rewritten. Jules Trehan returns to the United States after having been forced to become an assassin for a terrorist group. Upon her arrival, her mother and father are killed to keep her in line. Manny Ramirez has been looking for Jules since she disappeared three years ago. They grew up together and developed unspoken feelings for each other. Jules is in trouble, and Manny wants to help. But can she trust him, can he trust her, and who is trying to kill them? Verdict This title from popular erotic romance author Banks veers more toward romantic suspense, although it does contain brief sections of graphic sex. The character development is solid, although the plot is perhaps a bit predictable. Though this reviewer identified the "bad guys" relatively early on, the story still holds reader interest. For those who like a little sex with their suspense.-Susan Hayes, Chattahoochee Valley Lib., Columbus, GA (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
