Naked Heat (Nikki Heat Series, Book. 2)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the TV series, 31 Dec. 2010
I bought this book because the TV series is so good. I thought Richard Castle was a fictional character, and I still don't know whether he is or not.
The book is OK; not nearly as good as the TV proramme though. Nikki Heat is a credible character, but I prefer Kate Beckett. Ransom never really comes alive for me. The action is fair, but again, not as good as the TV.
Overall a moderate read, disappointing only because expectations were so high.

5.0 out of 5 stars A strongly developing series., 7 Aug. 2009
This sequel to Off Armageddon Reef is followed by By Heresies Distressed. And, I hope, by at least one and preferably more. The series contains a fascinating mix of political intrigue, exiting battle action, and personal interaction, with some love interest. If he's not careful, Weber will match his Honor Harrington series with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of the series., 2 Feb. 2009
I thoroughly enjoyed all the Miles Vorkosigan books, but I think this is the best of the series. Its combination of lovers' problems and final success with intriguing action works well. I particularly liked the passage where Ekaterin asks Miles to marry her as a way of refuting a political point made by a very nasty character. The development of Ivan into a surprisingly effective character is also enjoyable.
