Lexie Cortese is in Rome to forget. The last thing she expects is to meet a sexy Interpol agent who suspects her of being part of a terrorist plot involving a stolen diamond. Suddenly thrust into a world of murders, muggings, and kidnappings, Lexie doesn’t know what to think—or who to believe.

Dominic Brioni’s assignment is simple. Befriend the American and bring her to justice. Only Lexie seems like the most unlikely terrorist Dominic has ever met. Sweet, determined, and direct, she faces life with courage and fire, a fire that sparks his protective instincts and a longing for something more—something he allowed himself to hope for only once before.

But that woman betrayed him, and his boss isn’t about to let him forget it. With his career on the line and Lexie in danger, will Dominic learn to trust his heart before they both get killed?

My Rating

Sexual Rating

I really enjoyed this fast moving, exciting romantic suspense story. I thought the chemistry between Dominic and Lexie was believable and sweet. The plot was interesting, and I wasn’t exactly sure what was going to happen next. If I were to list everything that happened to this girl, it would seem over the top. However, while I was reading it, I didn’t feel that way. I also liked the way Lexie kept questioning how ridiculous the events were getting. I thought the author did a great job giving us enough insight into their personalities to make us care about both of the characters. She also described the scenery and atmosphere in Italy with just the right amount of details. I love short stories, and this was a very well written one.


  1. Sounds intriguing. :) I love that she set it in Italy. Thanks for the review, Kris! I look forward to reading this sometime.
