Navy SEAL Max Preston deosn't buy one word of his gorgeous captive's rambling story as he carries her up the beach. Yeah, she's got curves in all the right places, but Max has a nose for a con, and there's no way he'll let his iron control waver.
Now a hurricanes headed their way, and for Max and Miki time is ruinning out fast. Can they team up as friendly forces, and use Max's amaxing canine companion to escape before a deadly villain takes his twisted revenge?

The romantic conflict comes from the fact that Max doesn't trust Miki and won't tell anything about what he's doing there. He basically makes her his prisoner, and she keeps trying to escape. Complete with superheroes, super-villains, a super-dog with powers like the lady of Avalon, and light-hearted energetic sex, the story would seem to have definite potential to entertain its readers.
Yet while I generally like an escape from reality, some things were rather too far-fetched, as the narrator tried to chalk one magical ability after another to super-secret scientific advancements. The romance was on the far side of unbelievable, and very shallow, happening as it did between two shallow and stereotypical characters.
At least the book managed to be entertaining at times, but I personally couldn't relate to either of the romantic leads. If this is the sort of story you like however, I recommend you look at Deidre Knight's book "Parallel Attraction" - similar characters, but much more satisfying.
