Although a bit unbelievable in places, this book kept me up late listening to the adventure and sensual innuendos. Quite fun listening and good for the libido.

Not one of the better Malory books

I really hated the way Drew seemed so out of character in this book. He was not his devil may care self and I skipped to the end just to finish. As a die hard Malory/Anderson fan, I was very disappointed.
