This is the first time that I have read anything by Karen Robards and she'll be going to my must read list. She did a great job in combining the thriller and romance combo and satisfying me for both.
I love the way she created the sensual tension between Reed and Caroline and I was completely riveted as I waited to see how it would carry out. I also loved the brikmanship as the dynamic between captor and hostage played out, and the backstory to their previous relationship was hysterical. There were high stakes and great conflict, but most importantly a great romance that I really got hooked into.
This was a great read and one I recommend highly. Just looked at Robards' website and see she has quite a few books out, so I'll be doing a lot of reading in the near future.
