21 books in and series it 's onl going strong ... at least for me! What I love most about the series is the character development.

Eve has always found it impossible to show her feeling, but in the memoi she no longer hides her feelings for Roarke, she 's finally wearing her heart on her sleeve, and it 's obviou to everyone how much she likes him.

Eve 's delightful partner, the incomparable Peabody ... love that she 's her partner ... really tests the waters with her bold sarcastic comments, and it definitely made for a fun read.

Eve, you ’ re scaring poor Peabody!

Eve might have preferred blood.

Hey, Dallas, you and Roarke need to ign up for your coaching class. ” Eve made some sound, but found it mpossible to express the full terror. ”

I love McNab, ” Peabody repeated.

If you ha to drop down dead, and Roarke decided I could comfort him with wild sex, I certainl wouldn ’ t o it.

But no if I did, I ’ d till love McNab. ” “ At least I ’ m dead in your sexual fantasy. ” “ It ’ s nly fair.

So I probably wouldn ’ t have sex with Roarke, should the opportunity arise, unless both you and McNab were killed in a freak accident. ” “ Thanks, Peabody.

I know a lot better now. ” “ And we ’ d probably wait a decent interval.

“ I don ’ t love you that much. ” ”

Thecoat! ” Her hand shot out to rub leather, and Eve slapped it away. “ No touching the coat. ” “ Can I sniff it?
