She could have phoned this one in!
on 1 April 1999
The intriguing mystery of a naked woman and a bloody corpse is brusquely dismissed in the first two chapters as the author quickly precedes to cut and paste a hodgepodge of lust (not love) scenes and plot devises as inexplicable and leaden as her main characters. The hero is like a faint, pale rubbing of the vividly sensual urbanity of Apollo Kuzan from 'Sweet Love, Survive'. So similar were they, that I kept expecting Pasha to refer to Apollo's family and history as his own. The author's attempt to fuse a mindlessly horny blonde bimbo with a victimized, repressed, and yet devoted English mother, only succeeds in leaving the character of Trixi bafflingly inconsistent and unbelievable. My disorientation was increased when I recognized the harem scene in Greece as a Cleft Note version of the one from 'Love Storm' ! She has written better books. All in all, I would characterize this book as a sort of 'Ken and Barbie do Period Porn': plastic, pointless and painfully embarrassing.
