5.0 out of 5 stars Stuart invites use to dance in the fire with her, 19 July 2004
This review is from: Tangled Lies: Hawaii (Men Made in America) (Mass Market Paperback)
Anne Stuart perversely loves to create a male who is far from a hero, and then provoke, tantalise and lure her readers into for falling him. She must set around and make lists of all the types of men in the world a woman would swear she would never fall for, then with a wry grin, she sets about to prove to us she can do just that very feat. She has given us a hitman, a thief, a court jester, a cult leader...well the list is endless. Just as I think she has hit the bottom of the list, I find yet another. This time she does her Stuart magic and casts the hero as the heroine's brother.
When Rachel Chandler was 12-years-old, her brother Emmett was involved with a radical group of protesters. A bomb accidentally blew up killing several people, along with Emmett's girl friend. Emmett alone survived, just the quirk of fate that he had been out getting pizzas at the time. Emmett vanished, last seen in Hawaii, but for fifteen years no one had heard from him. No one except Rachel Chandler. Every year on her birthday she receives a package, post marked from various places around the world. So, when word comes from her uncle that Emmett is back in Hawaii at the family home, even her fear of flying will not stop her from being reunited with the brother she hadn't seen for fifteen years.
Only Emmett is not quite how she remembers him. She feared Emmett might be given to gaining weight, but this man is hard, lean. He carries scars from varies fights, attesting to his being in foreign places where life is cheap. Emmett is not happy when Rachel shows up on his doorstep. Neither is her uncle. Rachel soon comes to fear Emmett is not Emmett and this impostor and her uncle are playing a charade in order to get at the vast fortune left in trust for the real Emmett.
Is a steamy sexy, shadowy novel that Stuart does so well, showing whether in full novels or series romance, no one can touch the resident genius of dark romantic tales. Another Stuart keeper - but then aren't they all?
