Not really worth it

I generally like Elizabeth Lowell stories, so I don't understand what happened. I had no empathy for the hero, Hunter, who seemed to be a woman hater. He didn't change his mind even when he saw how the heroine, Elyssa, didn't fit his stereotyping, and up until the last minute was dead set against her. I don't even understand what it was that changed his mind about her.

I didn't understand why Elyssa put up with Hunter's verbal & emotional abuse. She seemed numb as a post - not brave - frequently going into "enemy territory" and risking her life on purpose.

I gave this story two stars because the reader was OK and because I chose to listen to the whole thing. If it was too much, I probably would have stopped before it was over. Maybe I just wanted to see if Lowell would turn it around.

It's a risk.

The characters are somewhat ambiguous sometimes, one can't be sure if the heroine is an easy floozy or an innocent young woman by some of the remarks made and behavior exhibited when the story begins. It was a little confusing at first, and it was difficult to like either the heroine or the hero. Eventually they redeem themselves and become somewhat entertaining, though it is not a great love story.
