This book could have been a very good romance/mystery story, but I was a little annoyed by the authors decision to make the "Ranger", Miki so overtly masculine that i was constantly asking myself....what does Christina see in her. The only physical traits the author describes for Miki is that she is 6ft tall and has short straight brown/blonde hair. But for the "femme" character, christina, we are told she has the "figure of a model with a small waist" and that her eyes are black and she has a long graceful neck that her looks are equal to Nefertiti. The book contradicts itself because the character Miki states that looks have never been important to her in a lover and yet she falls in love with a woman who looks like a woman whose name means "beautiful one", Neferiti. Miki describes Christina as a willow that bends easily and needs to be protected. In short I found the book to be sexist and the characters one dimensional.
