First Date

Tour Director Extraordinaire

I started out ready to like First Date by R.A. Siracusa. I love spy romances and Marrakesh. Unfortunately, my enjoyment quickly dissipated with the problems I saw in the story.
It read like a scene from a longer work, I was lost as far as the relationship between the hero, Will, and the heroine, Harriet, went. References to their past just left me thinking "What?" While Harriet was believable as a tour guide I didn't find her sympathetic.
Maybe with a bit more reworking...longer length and more personable characters this book will come together better. I would love to read a great international spy romance.

Book Blurb for First Date

Tired of celestial politics and wanting some fun, Fate brings together two young people who would have never met. A young tour director, Harriet Ruby, whose biggest problem is that she has no real problems, and Will Talbot, Europol spy with a dark and troubled past.

Wham!  Bam!  Sparks fly. Fate smiles.  “They’ll never know what hit them.”

After teaming up in Morocco for outstanding sex and hilarious adventure, Will and Harriet agree to see if their relationship can develop beyond mutual lust. Now, they’re having their first real date. Things are heating up nicely when they learn the “getting to know you” process, while on-the-job, is fraught with interruptions, frustrations…and the promise of an unforgettable adventure.
