Not going to say anything else, as am sure I already spoil lot of thing here. And I'm trying not to but it hard *grin*.
French Twist is an exciting adventure that will keep you enthralled until the end. A sizzling fast pace action with a little dose of danger that kept you on edge of your seat. Plenty of passion romance and tender moments. Wonderful strong characters with good humors. This is must read :)
This have been my fourth books I read by Roxanne St. Claire. Two of the books were part of an on going "Bullet Catcher" series. One were a stand alone Tropical Getaway, which was an opening to the "Bullet Catcher" series. I don't think you would go wrong with reading Roxanne St. Claire. Most of her books are tension romance with actions and good strong characters. I like them all!
