Rating: 4 Cups
Emily is a professor of Egyptian studies and colorblind. She is shy of men because her ex, Max, cheated, gambled and used her money to enjoy himself. She lives with her attack-cat Ria and loves sexy lingerie.
Nick is the heartthrob of the Agency. He has no problem finding women, so it is very difficult to portray himself as gay. Emily will not have a man living in her house any other way. The quirky professor appeals to him in a way that no other woman ever has.
When Emily receives an ancient Egyptian pot from a friend for her birthday, she thinks nothing of the piece of papyrus that falls out when her cat breaks it. The papyrus contains a recipe for invisible paint that has someone stalking her and ransacking her office. The government assigns her a gorgeous bodyguard, but they say he is gay. Emily is not sure, so she will test him out a little.
This is a very funny story. Emily is much more that the ditzy colorblind professor she at first seems. She is warm and funny, but she has been hurt badly before and is reluctant to trust. Nick is pretty much sandbagged by his friend Marty who tells Emily that he is gay. He really is not good at playing the part, but Emily is naïve enough that she does not catch on. Max D’Lancy is a sleazy conman who managed to fool Emily for a while and still thinks he can. Miranda’s character is not very well developed but she is a good friend to Emily. Marty and Terry, the other agents, are very professional, but the author has given them vivid personalities. There are quite a few laugh-out-loud moments in this story and I really enjoyed it.
