When this book first came out, the Avian Flu was not "big news" as it is today, but this book actually utilized a possible outbreak in the hands of terrorist groups as a central theme. I thought the premise was intriguing, as well as the emotional trauma that motivated the main character / heroine. The romantic relationship does not accelerate until the second half of the book, but the twist at the end definitely surprised me. I would have liked to see more of the couple's relationship issues. Ms. Howard is excellent in writing emotional drama and steamy scenes, but the suspense/terrorist plot took center stage here. Still a great read if you want something different besides serial killers or political intrigue. This story combined a developing romance with a too-realistic Health threat, that is even more relevant today.

I have every book that this author has written, from her start with silouette, to her current books now. Usually a LH book will keep me glued to it, this one see above title. Yawn, I found that I really didn't care about the main characters at all. The format of revenge killings is an old one and it would have to be an exceptional author to give it an interesting twist. Like an organisation such as the CIA would allow one of their operatives such leeway, I doubt it. Lucas irritated me, he got sidetracked by Lily, she fell into bed with him too quickly and hardly knew anything about him. Puleeze, highly trained operative my foot. She was way too easy for him to fool and then there was Lily's emotional state, any sane person would have stayed away from this woman, she come across as whiny, needy and very clingy, ( exit most men left) I love this author but this is the second book she has dissapointed me with, to the point of the last two books that I bought, I sold on very quickly. This is the type of work by an author, who in my opinion, knew that whatever she put out there will sell with loyal fans. It felt that she had dashed it off and she herself didn't much care about the story or its characters. Let's hope her next book is better than this one was.

This is Linda Howard at her very best.Lily is on a very fragile edge and has carried out an unofficial assassination. The CIA send in one of their own to bring her in or down. Lucas is so sexy and fun that Lily starts to let down her guard and lets him in to her heart. Lucas starts to care for Lily and realises she will never forgive him If he betrays her. They both have to carry forward the unofficial assignment and as it all comes together Linda Howard makes your heart drop when you realise what Lucas does. I couldn't put it down and as I got closer to the end I really feared for Lily. Read it, It's a keeper.

"kiss me while i sleep", is the latest novel by Linda Howard & although i really love this women's work usually, this just isn't her finest. It has one big flaw & that is the central charactor " Lily".
Lily mansfield is a hired assassin, she works as a contract agent for the CIA, her targets are the powerful and corrupt, those who can't be touched by the law.
But after i8 years of service Lily is no longer the hard and pragmatic assassin she was. she has distanced herself from her family, she has no love life and her only friends and their daughter have been murdered. Lily wants vengeance for her own reasons,this hit has not been sanctioned and the CIA are worried Lily has lost it!.
a CIA agent himself, Lucas Swain recognises the signs of trauma in the line of fire. his orders are to either bring Lily in or bring her down. Yet he too is drawn into the game with Lily, dancing on a tightrope as he tries to avoid a major international incident while still battling a tenacious foe who is dogging their every step.
While this is a very good book, well put together with a good storyline - Lily is just all wrong.
OK, she's a good charactor in that she is strong and capable and could probably beat the best at her game, the author made her too reliant on Lucas, without asking the right questions about him.
Firstly, Lucas just happens to be in the right place at the right time to save her ass! & she doesn't really try to find out who he is.
Secondly, he knows too much about weapons,covert operations & he knows too many shady people - again she doesn't really find out how and why.
Thirdly,she doesn't know how to stake out any where without being caught - so she's only a hitman!, but surely she knows how to blend in !!.

I liked Lucas Swain's character, for me, he was the only good thing about this book.

I didn't like Lily Mansfield, she left me cold and I really could not bring myself to care what had happened to her. She was an assasian for goodness sake, what did see expect?

If this is the first book you are buying of Linda Howard's you might be better starting with Mackenzie's Mountain or if you want something longer, more in depth, as Mackenzie's Mountain is a silhouette book, then try Shades of Twilight/Son in the Morning (best value book)

Sorry my review does not really tell you the story, just if I enjoyed it.
