Kudos, first of all, to Michelle Hasker to thinking outside the tattered box of werewolves et al. I love werewolves, don't get me wrong, but a snake? Not to mention the storyline that is so hot that it's certain even a cold-blooded -reptile, shall we say, would be aroused from hibernation. The only quibble I had with this was that it seemed to be too short a story. I really wanted more back-story about the Agency and what it stood for and its role. Also, more back-story about Kim/Nalini would have been great; as it is, I had some interesting snippets of information, but really not enough to piece together what kind of person she was. In all however, this is a great story that is well worth picking up - and well worth expanding upon. *hint hint
Agent John Macallister is so deep undercover he's not sure who he is anymore. Fortunately the Agency has sent one of their best operatives to rescue him -- from himself. Only problem? She's a giant anaconda.
Sleeping with the man you're guarding is a bad idea. Especially if you're a snake shapeshifter pretending to be nothing more than a six-foot-long, yellow anaconda and you're in love with the man you're guarding. As if not being able to have sex with John isn't bad enough, they're in the middle of a drug dealer's paradise and everyone wants him dead. Kim doesn't know which is harder, keeping John alive or keeping her hands -- and her identity -- to herself.
