This is the second book in the Rubicon International Series and it's just as exciting and sexy as the first book. We have Lars, the European location co-owner of Rubicon, an International Espionage Company. He's lived a very long time and no longer believes he'll have his forever mate and acts accordingly with the women. He's presently working a case where his goal is to kill a man who is one of the high ups in the heroin trade. While casing him out in a casino in Monte Carlo he sees the mans companion, whom he believes is a hooker or the mans current girlfriend. He later finds out her name is Tamara, and he is instantly attracted to her; like strong thoughts of a sexual nature. He tells himself he has to keep his eye on his goal. Later, after someone tries to kill him, he learns that the man has already been killed and they think it was him. Read what happens when due to dangerous circumstances he saves her life and now feels he has to keep her safe. They both are keeping secrets from each other but meanwhile they can't seem to keep away from each other. Find out what and why Tamara is keeping her secrets, and unknown to both of them, is in a way connected to Rubicon. I can't wait for the author to write the next book in the series, as Rubicon is filled with very interesting people and stories. After all it and it's owners have been around for over 200 years.
