Pat's Review:

Book two picks up exactly where book one ended.  Roman and Everly are on his private jet flying to Europe.  This trilogy is not a stand alone, and The Request needs to be read first.

Roman and Everly both awaken in a hotel in Prague. Everly had been drugged on the plane for "air sickness" and Roman by his evil mentor Viktor upon landing. This novel continues to amaze me at the twists and turns! Roman is living a very dangerous double life and Everly is thrilled to be with the very romantic and protective bookseller expecting to meet his ill grandfather.

Slowly but surely Everly is learning the secrets Roman is keeping, or rather what he is allowing her to learn, but still sees him as her lover and hero.  A confrontation in their hotel room by Viktor and his henchman is about to change all that.  I'm so glad I only have to wait a few more days to read the final installment in this suspenseful, very sexy thriller, The Confession.

I recommend this trilogy for lovers of suspense, intrigue and very sexy love scenes!

Thanks for the review, Pat! :) Oh, with a recommendation reason like that, yep, this series is already on my list! But then, I'm a HUGE fan of MV's books. Really, look at our previous reviews (above). 

Have you read Marquita Valentine yet? (Um, if not -- WHY THE HELL NOT?) 

Do you when a set of books follows just one couple, or do you prefer the HEA to be wrapped up neatly in one novel?


Until Next Time,
