A thief like her ex-lover—James Waters. Review: Burning Intensity by Elizabeth Lapthorne is a hot, steamy novel filled with intrigue. El and her partner Rob are spies working on finding a painting, a Cezanne. The novel begins with Rob and El grilling hardcore criminal Thaddeus, attempting to get a lead on the whereabouts of the painting. Thaddeus won’t bend and they are left looking elsewhere to find their answers. That’s where James, her ex-flame and man of her dreams, comes in. He is a professional thief with class and a big heart. The heat between El and James hasn’t diminished and fires back up upon seeing each other after several months of separation. The author’s writing style is conversational and addictive. Lapthorne does a first-class job weaving the thoughts, emotions, and animated descriptions of each character in the story giving them depth from page one. The novel moves with fluidity as spy scenes transform into passionate love scenes. She captures action, suspense and ecstasy in this exciting novel that is sure to keep the reader turning pages. Scintillating novel that I couldn’t put down. | Reviewer: Lisa Klaes |
