Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Naughton's rock-solid debut, the first of a trilogy, a duo searching for three magnificent bas-reliefs of the Greek Furies find romance and danger as well. For 15 years, since the death of her lover, Dr. Lisa Maxwell has been obsessed with reuniting the sculptures of Alecto, Megaera and Tisiphone. She's furious when art thief Rafe Sullivan drugs her, almost seduces her and steals Alecto from her hotel room safe. With the help of her twin brother, Chicago detective Shane Maxwell, Lisa locates Rafe in Key West, Fla., where he has a line on Megaera. They reluctantly join forces and race to find Tisiphone before another treasure hunter picks them off. Naughton's intelligent adventure plot is intensified by the blazing heat that builds from Lisa and Rafe's first erotic encounter. (Jan.)

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
On the book's cover, the story is compared to the movies Indiana Jones and Romancing the Stone - a lot of action scenes with stealing treasure and bad guys chasing good guys. It had the ingredients for romance, but it had no spark for me. It was missing something. The characters sounded like they should be interesting, but I wasn't drawn to them emotionally. I didn't find myself smiling, chuckling or being surprised enough. A minor point, but noticeable, was the use of artificial cliffhangers. On several occasions, the author stopped a scene in the middle of a dramatic moment, to be continued a few pages later. I'm willing to accept limited use of this by authors, but in this story, it bothered me. I also had problems with the ending which confused me.

STORY BRIEF:
Lisa is an archaeologist searching for three ancient Greek marble sculptures called the Furies. She found one. Rafe steals it from her. He offers to give it back if she helps him find another one of the Furies. She agrees. Bad guys chase and try to kill them during the process.

I usually do not write reviews unless I am truly bothered by a book. After reading the great reviews, I bought the trilogy and now I am stuck with it. This book bothered me on so many levels, but primarily I was disturbed that other unsuspecting readers would buy this book without a warning. For the love of all that is chocolate, if you must read this book, get it from your local library.

I love romantic suspense books, NOT books that read like a Lifetime Movie Network script for an Indiana Jones rip-off. I have tried to read this book, but just ended up skimming through it. I think another reviewer summed it up best, that this author throws together disjointed scenes to achieve either the action/romance/suspense element.

It is a given in a romance novel that the lead characters will be attracted to each other to the point of distraction. It is not necessary to hit the reader over the head with it. But what is not a gvien, is a good solid story. A bunch of interesting scenes put together does not make a good book. Vintage Linda Howard, Nora Roberts, Lynn Veihl, Christy Reece and a host of others have the amazing gift to balance the necessary elements for a romantic suspense book. This author shows promise, but in my humble opinion did not deliver.

Dr. Lisa Maxwell, is a brilliant archeologist who has uncovered a rare marble carving or `relief' that she thinks may well be one of the original three Greek "Furies". The origin of the carving is explained in the book so I won't spoil that with a discussion here. After she excavates the carving in Jamaica she goes to Italy to give a lecture and plans to have her find authenticated. At the closing of her lecture she is `rescued' from an unwanted suitor (not that Lisa needs rescuing from anyone) by a tall drop dead handsome Latin who introduces himself as 'Raphael Garcia', a history professor from the University of Barcelona.

Little does Lisa know but Mr. Latin Lover is actually Rafe Sullivan and he knows she has the relic and is intent on stealing it. Lisa hasn't enjoyed male company in a long time so needless to say one thing leads to another. Following a romantic dinner Rafe ends up back at Lisa's hotel room where he slips her a Mickey Finn. The scene prior Lisa falling into a drugged slumber is quite funny because Rafe gets more or less, so to speak than he bargained for. I couldn't help but laugh.

Rafe steals the Fury and is long gone when Lisa awakens in the morning with a vicious hangover. When she finds the artifact missing, she is frothing at the mouth angry. This heroine has a nasty temper, a sharp rapier wit, and a mouth to go with,that caused me to bark with laughter. Old Rafe has no idea what he is in for when Lisa tracks him to Florida and promptly reaps vengeance in front of a sweet young thing he is about to entertain on his pretty sailboat moored at a dock in Key West.

Elisabeth Naughton's debut STOLEN FURY cost me precious hours of sleep, and it was completely worth it! I absolutely love this book - from the relatable and entertaining characters, to the settings I could vividly picture in my mind, to the action that kept my eyes reading as fast as they could into the wee hours of the morning.

STOLEN FURY has been called "Romancing the Stone" meets "Indiana Jones" by Publisher's Weekly. Those are films I love, and this book was even better. Here's a quick list of what I enjoyed about this book, and hopefully it will encourage you to give it a try.

1) Naughton has found a solid balance of action, romance and snarky humor. Personally, I prefer romantic suspense books that are more evenly split in those areas, books with much more suspense than romance don't keep my interest. STOLEN FURY is an even mix, and Naughton crafted the romance in a way that was believable in the midst of stressful, suspenseful situations.

2) The characters are likable, realistic and believable. One of many ways Naughton excels with this book is that the reader can see why Lisa and Rafe, the heroine and hero, belong together. They complement each other and help each other deal with their fears, insecurities, and flaws.

3) Although the best quality of romance novels is that they are usually character-driven, the plot of STOLEN FURY makes the read even more entertaining. I get frustrated when I love the characters of a story, but their situation is not believable, or doesn't fit the characters. You won't have that problem with this book. The pace kept me turning the page, needing to know what was next. I kept telling myself I'd stop reading at the end of the chapter and go to bed. But I couldn't! She kept me hooked and reading more.
