From AudioFile

Kayla Shaw is happy and secure as a private banker until she realizes her boss, Andre Bertone, has used her to launder millions of dollars. Rand McCree has been hunting Bertone ever since the ruthless Russian brutally murdered his twin brother. When Kayla and Rand meet, they join forces to bring down the murderer, with the help of St. Kilda Counsulting, a private rogue operation. The story has a slew of agents, evildoers, and others, as well as a rash of emotions. Thankfully, Carol Monda moves easily up and down the roller coaster of feelings, maximizing the charged dialogue between Kayla and Rand and carefully portraying Kaylas growth from a worried woman to one who fears little and dares much.

Innocent as Sin is a terrific, can't put it down, story.

Kayla Shaw is a bright, world traveled free spirit who's finally settled down to work at a bank and ends up in the world of private banking, personally taking care of a few very wealthy clients.

Rand McCree is an artist and former agent trying to recover from a life changing incident.

One of Kayla's clients, a REAL bad guy, ends up bringing them together and sending them on the run.

I don't want to give any details away but, as usual, Elizabeth Lowell has written a wonderful romantic suspense. I love how she gives great detail about her characters and their lives and I find myself always learning about something new in her books (Like all the info about the gem industry in her great Amber Cove series)

I couldn't put it down...dinner was late tonight...LOL...and I loved every minute of it!

Elizabeth Lowell has done it again!

Format: Hardcover
Like Lowell's last release, The Wrong Hostage, this book has an up-to-the-minute political issue as it's focus; this time, international gun runners and their exploitation of Africa. At least this time, the hero and heroine aren't nearly as annoying, although their deep feelings for each other are built on almost nothing. We learn little about who the hero is, other than that he's upset about the death of his brother, and he paints. He and the heroine share one night of passion (which lasts all of two pages), and then suddenly are willing to risk their lives for each other. After that, the plot takes over, and the remainder of the book is spent trying to straighten out the mess of international intrigue that's been created, with no further attention given to developing the characters.
Some authors are fantastic at weaving current political storylines into a romance - see Suzanne Brockmann - but Lowell isn't one of them. Her heavy-handed attempts at a "message" derail the romance, instead of using the romance to build the plot, and vice versa. If she wants to head that way, her publisher should reclassify her titles as "fiction" instead of "romance" when promoting them, and have bookstores shelve them accordingly.
For those like myself who felt The Wrong Hostage was the worst Lowell ever, guess what - the main characters are back, big time, in this novel. They continue to be idiots - what kind of man would not only take his teenage son along as his cover on an op where he knows there will be an assasination attempt, but then expose himself and his son to the enemy in order to gloat over a capture? What kind of fictional heroes are going to sit around waiting on a court order while millions of lives hang in the balance? Only those in St. Kilda Consulting.

I will have to say I liked this more than The Wrong Hostage. I really just found Grace's character terribly annoying. However she and Joe are now married and in this book she is much more likable. Their son Lane appears off and on in it also and he is just a cool kid. That said this book kept my interest though Kayla's character was a little far fetched at times. I haven't read a lot of EL books but the ones I have the heroine suddenly becomes this alpha person taking on the bad guys and hello even taking the head villan out. Okay maybe that's EL's formula. Once in awhile that's okay but I find it a bit unbeliveable every time. I liked most of the characters, even the bad guys and when I say I liked them, it's meant that they lived up to their character protrayal. We can't list this with great literature but just for a few hours read it does what it's supposed to do; entertain. It's not the kind of book I will read again but it was an okay read and will probably read the next St Kilda book to see if our characters we've become acquainted with show up in it. I will say that EL must have a very qualified research department to come up with the correct banking procedures and even the information she would need to write about arms trade.

I generally enjoy Lowell's books but this one was formulaic and lacked punch. The heroine and hero, Kayla and Rand, are all but stock characters, and their relationship is totally uninspiring. Luckily then for a great villain, Bertone, and his beauty queen wife, whose horrific crimes, committed on an international scale, fill this novel with much needed suspense.
If only, Kayla and Rand were up to the challenge...

Reed and Rand McCree are identical twins and in the prologue are on a "photo" mission for St. Kilda Consulting (introduced in the "Wrong Hostage" book). They are in a blind and getting photos of the Siberian -- a gun runner who is messing with the politics in various African governments not to mention accumulating millions of dollars from his "trade." Unfortunately, they are spotted and Reed is severely wounded by a sniper shot from the Siberian and further wounded and killed by enemy helicopter strafing fire.

Five years later we are in Arizona where private banker Kayla Shaw has sold her family ranch, is looking forward to moving on with her life and has a very demanding client, the Bertones! She talks to her boss when this client threatens her and it turns out that her client was behind the very efficient sale of her ranch at the asking price. Her boss tells her to deposit the $22 million check in a special account in Aruba and he will take care of the rest.

In the meantime in Seattle, Joe Faroe (Wrong Hostage) has gone to see Rand McCree and have him get pictures of Kayla's client as St. Kilda's believes he is the Siberian who killed Rand's brother. Rand is a painter and agrees to go to the "Fast Draw" competiton as a party the Bertones are giving to benefit the Scottsdale Art Museum. He takes with him a camera that is two-in-one: a normal camera plus on the side at a 90 degree angle a second lense that takes digital pictures onto a small memory card.

Kayla knows that she is getting in deeper and deeper with the Bertones and hopes her boss will contact her soon with what she should do as she doesn't want to be involved in criminal activity. She also goes to their party and when she sees Rand's paintings she realizes this is the "R.
