This book was only okay. The romance seems to be very lust-driven. I found Trisha a little annoying at times because of what I saw as her petulant outbursts. (If she needs the money badly enough to agree to this crazy scheme, she shouldn't jeopardize it by insulting the man at what seems to be every chance she gets, should she?) Lassiter is pretty hot stuff, and Roszel creates him in the brooding, hard-to-read, larger-than-life mold. I got this at the library, and I guess it was worth the time to read, but I'll neither seek it out to purchase on my own nor specifically seek out Roszel's future books.
