Présentation de l'éditeur

Detective Remington frickin’ hates the missing persons detail, but a cold fury builds in the pit of his stomach when he realizes that over the past three months six boys have disappeared from the smaller communities that surround the greater Phoenix area. All reported to be runaways looking to escape their shitty lives, but Remy’s starting to put together a different picture and he doesn’t like it one damn bit.

Inspector Jamie Mainwaring stares at the six reports, willing them to make sense. Six boys, six months, all from just outside of London, which meant six different investigations. All of the boys were between the ages of ten and fifteen, all purportedly runaways from dysfunctional families. Something was rotten in Denmark.

There are always runaways. Every small town loses them—every big city collects them. Kids look for freedom and discover they have more to lose than they ever thought possible. London and Phoenix, culture and cowboys, nothing linking these two sprawling metropolitan areas. Nothing except a hit on a computer data search.

Two cops, one a cowboy, the other a Lord. A secret government agency, human trafficking, and a blazing hot mutual distraction.

What the hell have Remington and Mainwaring gotten themselves into?

Continental Divide is a suspenseful read detailing international kidnapping cases. Detective Remington first notices a pattern of young boys being abducted in Phoenix, while his counterpart in London, Inspector Jamie Mainwaring notices the same. A secret Interpol task force is started and the two men begin working together to unravel the mystery. However, tension and wariness between Remington and Jamie might derail that.

What I liked about Continental Divide is the gritty realism of the case. Human sex trafficking exists and the determination of the two protagonists to stop it, at any costs, is very gripping. Another good thing about the book is the UST between Jamie and Remington. That was off the charts.

However, there were a few things I thought needed some work. While the chemistry between Jamie and Remington was super hot, their continuous fighting and general mistrust of each other grew tiring and felt forced. Second, the bad guys were over-the-top annoying, and were too easily discovered by the detectives. I think the suspense would have been better if that hadn't been revealed so early.

For those who hate cliffhangers, then be forewarned, this one ends on a big one. But, don't fear, there are at least two more books coming in this series, so the next one should answer all those dangling plot points.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful police procedural that just happens to be a gay romance 6 mai 2014
Par Tiffany C. Graham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This story is the first installment in a four-book series that centers on the relationship between Remy, an American cop, and Jamie, his British law enforcement counterpart, when they come together for the purpose of investigating a criminal ring that focuses on sexual trafficking in underage boys. As one might guess, when they first meet each other, there is a great deal of hostility and tension, but as they continue working together, it quickly becomes clear that the hostility is simply sexual tension and the sparks begin to fly!

The story works so well, though, because the sparks are rooted in more than sex. In the midst of a taut, well-written story that focuses on some pretty tough issues surrounding child abuse, these two men are not only trying to save the kids who are the targets of some pretty nasty individuals, but they are reluctantly falling in love with each other. Remy is a head case who has intimacy issues that are rooted in long-standing issues that he can barely stand to face, so he has a hard time acknowledging his feelings for Jamie at all. Jamie, however, is balanced, healthy, and head-over-heels in love with Remy, and takes the times to show him how to connect on a level that moves beyond what they can do for each other in bed. This dynamic is loads of fun to read, and uber romantic to boot, and you'll find yourself cheering for this incredibly compelling couple!

A final note. To the reviewers who call this novel a work of gay porn: you couldn't be more wrong. This isn't porn. Heck, I even disagree with the author who characterizes this book as erotic. This novel contains about as much sex as a standard contemporary romance novel; it's honestly not that big of a deal. If sex between men isn't your cuppa, that's fine. Don't download it, don't read it. The world isn't going to end. But to call this book gay porn is empirically incorrect. This book is a love story. It just may not be the kind of love story that you prefer, and that's okay. As for me, I happened to love it, and I would highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys police procedurals and is cool with reading about two men falling in love.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great new series - two hot detectives 19 avril 2012
Par Tom W - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Yet another young boy in Phoenix is missing, and Detective Remington is hot. Not just because of the weather, but six boys, barely in their teens, are gone without a trace. While he struggles to put the pieces together, he can't help but feel all these cases are somehow related. Young boys, troubled homes, sudden disappearances.

Meanwhile, in London, Inspector Jamie Mainwaring is coming to much the same conclusion. Six missing boys. All from unhappy home situations. All missing. No clues. So he goes digging, looking for similarities. What he finds triggers involvement at much higher levels of government.

So it's no surprise when Remy finds himself on a plane to England. But what IS a surprise is the attraction he feels immediately for Jamie. But, he can't - no, won't - act on it. He's there for a job, not to make friends or find a trick. So he puts on his best Cowboy attitude and snipes and snarks at the man.

Doesn't work, and the attraction deepens. On both sides.

But when Remy discovers Jamie is a little upper-crust, and wealthy, he shuts down. Again. Frustrates the hell out of Jamie.

Then they catch a break. Five boys are reported missing in much the same fashion. This time back in the States. And if the pattern holds, maybe they can bust this case wide open before the sixth boy goes missing. But that means working together closely, with a secret government agency and each other. Going undercover. And trusting each other.

Will they catch the break they are looking for, and save these boys? Will we find out what Remy is hiding - why his past and these boys are so troublesome, and why he's pushing Jamie away? Will their romance last?

Laura Harner and Lisa Worrall have pooled their considerable talents and come up with a wonderfully written, brilliantly executed story involving two men of vastly different backgrounds that manage to find some solace in each others arms. This is a great read, made all the better by taking the strengths of these two women - the skill with which they create their characters and the way they weave plots so very well. In this case, the sum is greater than the whole.

Remy is a great character - strong, but oh-so-broken. He hides his vulnerability behind Western bravado, but we see how he lonely he really is. He's a loveable hard-ass, giving his all to his job and neglecting himself. When things get "too real", he shuts down. But we see behind it to the loyal, giving man he really is.

And Jamie - all spoiled rich boy, but underneath a core of steel. He is the flip side of Remy. He believes in himself, goes after love with both hands and damn the torpedoes. He leads with his heart where Remy thinks first.

They are so good together, and play off of each other so well. I loved the story line, even though it was difficult. Child sex trafficking. There's no easy way to tell a story like that except straightforward, and Ms. Harner and Ms. Worrall take it on in style.

I can't wait to see what they do next. The ending - had me split between flying to Phoenix or London to kick some writer tail.

I expect the next edition to be as explosive.

Great job, ladies.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great yarn; excellent characters; some frustrations... 21 juillet 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

It's gotten so a "3" seems like a bad review, so I won't go there. I liked this book; I cared about both of the MCs - Jamie Mainwaring and Colt Remington. I have my disappointments, but they didn't keep me from anticipating keenly the next in the series...

The coming together of an emerging group of apparent abductions across two continents triggers the unlikely pairing of a renegade Texan known as Remy and a rebellious British aristocrat known as Jamie. The romantic sparks they strike off each other prove to be a distraction in a complicated case that becomes increasingly disturbing and politically explosive as the truth behind all of the disappearing boys begins to become clear.

I thoroughly enjoyed the way two cultural stereotypes - the butch American cowboy and the effete British nob - break down each other's resistance as they (not entirely successfully) try to deal with unfamiliar emotions in the context of a difficult and dangerous undercover mission.

My own frustration at the romantic cliffhanger of and ending is tempered by my love of Josh Lanyon's Adrian English series, which inured me to suffering through a lot of sturm und drang to get the romantic payoff, even if it means several books. OK, I can deal with that.

For me, the most annoying flaw - and annoying particularly because it was so unnecessary - was the constant mishandling of Jamie's identity. Jamie is a sort of 21st-century avatar of Dorothy L. Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey. But the authors consistently get titles wrong - something no British author should ever do. If you're going to present a plausible aristocrat as a character - one who eschews his title to live as a "regular" person - then you need to make sure you get it right. James Mainwaring ("Mannering") is Lord Fordham, the Earl of Fordham. His mother, then, would be the Dowager Countess of Fordham. Or Lady Fordham. Before his father died, Jamie would have been Lord James Mainwaring (an honorary title accord to sons of earls) - and he would then have been Lord James, NOT Lord Mainwaring. Neither he nor his mother nor his father would EVER have been called "your Grace," which is strictly reserved for Dukes, Duchesses and Archbishops. Got it? Sloppy details spoil the story for me, and make Jamie's whole story less authentic.

But perhaps, I am bitching all alone...no matter, it's worth reading.

I threw self-discipline out the window and ignored laundry, meal preparation, and all social contact until I finished reading this book. The authors handled the sexual tension and intimate exchange with a sort of raw grace. Jamie and Remy navigating their hunger for one another while focusing on their appointed mission keeps the story-line moving along at break-neck speed.
