"two worlds collide with heat and emotion"
Having the type of job that Mia Logan does makes for some
weird times. Mia is a psychologist who specializes in
hypnotizing those who are criminals into admitting their
wrongs and crimes. But up till now she didn't really worry
too much about them doing anything to her because, hello,
they are put away. But all of that changes for Mia when one
of her criminals escapes. Mia finds herself teaming up with
Ric, a futuristic criminal tracker that specializes in
finding escaped criminals. Ric isn't happy that he has been
sent to earth to team up with a human woman. He had set his
heart on making his appointment with a M'Loran Pleasure
Aide. See on his planet all unmarried men have to have a
sexual release, so when he isn't able to keep that
appointment he becomes extremely frustrated. After getting
to know each other, Mia is told that there is no way of
hypnotizing him. Oh, Mia sees that as a challenge and
decides to bet him that she can. So Mia decides why not try
hypnotizing Ric into what she dreams of, having Ric fulfill
her sexual dreams, desires. Ric decides why not play along
with Mia because he finds her full of life, hot and can't
seem to keep his thoughts or hands off of her. So he
decides to let her think she has done it. But what will
Rick do when Mia finds out about his sneakiness? Will Mia
understand that Ric would have done anything to get her to
think she had succeeded so he could touch her, give her all
the passion she wanted?
All I can say is "WOW", Jaci Burton did it again. Ms.
Burton drew me from the first page to the last, the way she
takes two worlds and brings them together with a bang. To
team Mia and Ric up and to see the heat and emotion build
between the two had me holding my breath and biting my
nails throughout the whole story. I have enjoyed many of
Jaci Burton's books and I keep telling myself that she
can't get better than what she already is, but boy am I
