5.0 out of 5 stars A great romance suspense novel with charming characters, 1 Oct 2010

This review is from: Pursuit (Mass Market Paperback)
The main plot is about a heiress who is on the run for a murder she did not commit. She ends up in a little town in Mexico where she lives in relative anonymity. Simultaneously, a seriously wounded Navy SEAL chap goes to the same town to rehabilitate himself . He is a shadow of his former self. I don't want to give too much away.

They are both lonely lost souls trying to exorcise their past demons and rebuild their lives, they see each other from afar and they seem to have this kindred spirit connection. He sees her as her guardian angel and she sees him as her saviour. They have a tentative courtship with Charlotte unable to trust him at first about her situation and Matt being perceptive and persuasive in nature helps her to confide in him.

Matt, the hero is very alpha male but an unusual one which I like. He is truly an awe inspiring hero who pushes himself to the limit to get back into physical and mental shape. He is angst-ridden because the Navy SEALS was his life and now ponders what he is going to do next. You can't help but feel his pain and fall for him at the same time. You got to read it to understand his character. He also chivalrous, gracious, charming and abit of a rough diamond in relation to Charlotte's sophistication. He has a sensitive side and understands that when a woman needs her space, he will step back when necessary. He gives her time to adjust in their relationship and isn't too pushy when he he's dying to get her into bed with him. He is also shrewd at cajoling Charlotte to learning tasks to protect herself when she is reluctant.

Charlotte is very rich but not in the spoilt sense, and lives quite a simple life in Mexico, she believes in helping humanity and is totally devoted to her father and she is most happy carefree when painting and is smart when planning her escape. She is also quite an naive when dealing with business of her paintings and when trying to save Matt from drowning. I believe Matt and Charlotte have great chemistry and sexual tension together, although she is her own person, she needs a strong man to look after her and Matt is protective and possessive without being aggressively arrogant.

The bad guys are superb and the build up to locating the heroine is great but is abit tedious at times. The other character Tom Reich seems intriguing too. I liked Lenny's comic character, I wished I knew about more about his life. The setting of the location was lovely, one felt you were there in this delightful town and the characters were lively and colourful. My tiny criticism is that I thought the ending was a bit rushed and I would have liked an epilogue.

All in all, a great suspense story and very charming romance with a lovely Hero and heroine your cheering for all the way to the end. I highly recommend this book.
