Ms. Monroe has created a very good read with the first in a series titled "Touch Me." Exotic locations, unusual characters, and great chemistry combined into a read that will entertain. Thea is not your typical woman. She thinks for herself, does for herself, and can't be bothered with what others think of her. A trust issue tore her family apart and now she finds that she must go back to England to investigate a possible theft from her shipping company. Her chance to sail for England come at the hands of handsome Pierson Drake. From the get go these two spark energy off of each other. It's only a matter of time before the spark kindles a flame. Now neither of them can deny the attraction, but each has a well protected heart and is shy about laying that heart open. Will these two wounded people find the love that they each doesn't think exist with each other? This was a good book. Thea is a modern day woman in many of her thought processs' but Ms. Monroe still manages to keep to the time period despite this. The fact that both Thea and Pierson have issues does prevent this story from reaching a natural conclusion any earlier than it already does. This despite being a tad frustrated a few times this read did manage to entertain. I look forward to the next in the series which is titled "Tempt Me."
I could not put this book down. Started it lunch time today and finished it this evening.
I would say this is one of the best Lucy Monroe books I have read.
I loved the storyline and the love story to this. What i enjoyed most is that unlike some of her other books I have read the storyline wasnt swallowed up by all of the sex. There was still the good storyline, with the really nice love story with just the perfect amount of love scenes.
I loved both Thea and Pierson Drake,both strong likeable characters and I liked all of the secondary characters, made the story fuller and more interesting.
Definately one of her best in my opinion and am now starting the next book "Tempt Me"
This is the first of three books in a series (the others being Tempt Me and Take Me) and is a very enjoyable read. The chemistry between the two main characters (Thea and Pierson) is well written with enough conflict between them to keep it interesting. I did find that the suspense part of the book (concerning fraud, which was the reason for Thea leaving America and going to England in the first place) was very rushed during the latter part of the book and pretty contrived. Despite this, I enjoyed the book and would reccommend it.
