Trying to save her brother leaves Melanie Andrews with a dead body at her hands and a killer at her heels. Her only chance to escape was Roderick Laughlin. After he helped her out of the ballroom and out of the killer's sight, she kisses him goodbye and thinks she will never see him again. She has gotten mixed up in a deadly game and the only one who can protect her is Roderick.
Talk about breath-taking! This story was such a rollercoaster ride over the course of approximately 48 hours, I couldn't put it down. Melanie is trying to save her brother, who called her in fear for his life. They both grew up in a family of con-artists and thieves, so they know the family trade even though both are trying to lead an honorable life. But when her brother is in danger, Melanie leaves everything behind. Little did she know she was deep in a dangerous game of which she didn't know the rules. Dani Sinclair created an awesome storyline and I'm shocked to see that I haven't read any of the Harlequin Intrigue books before Mystique and this one!
