If you sense someoneís watching you from afar, or if you feel a shadow other than your own at your back, I might as well pack it up and call it a day.

Itís a job that makes a killing. Efficient, professional, and without apology, Lily Mansfield is a hired assassin, working as a contract agent for the CIA. Her targets are the powerful and corrupt, those who canít be touched by the law.

Now, after nineteen years of service, Lily has been drawn into a dangerous game that hasnít been sanctioned, seeking vengeance for her own reasons. Each move bolder than the next, she is compromising her superiors, drawing unwanted attention, and endangering her very life. Though stress and shock have made her feel somewhat invincible and a little cocky, Lily knows that she too can be taken out in an instant. And if itís her time, so be it. She intends to go down fighting.

A CIA agent himself, Lucas Swain recognizes the signs of trauma in the line of fire. His orders: either bring her in or bring her down. Yet he too is drawn into the game with Lily Mansfield, dancing on a tightrope as he tries to avoid a major international incident while still battling a tenacious foe who is dogging their every step. Keeping laser focus on the task at hand while vigilantly watching her back, Mansfield never sees the lethal peril that lies directly in her path . . . and how loyalty has a price.

Chock-full of the intrigue, breathless action, and sensuality that have made Linda Howard the master of romantic suspense, Kiss Me While I Sleep is a daring thriller of passion, sudden twists, and richly imagined characters who live and breathe in readersí hearts. It is the most gripping and complex novel of Linda Howardís career.

WOW! This book was definitely full of surprises, and cliffhangers. At first I didn't think I'd like it, mainly because I was put off by Lily. But like I was the first time I read a book by Linda ... Read full review

I loved Swain. Absolutely loved him. I binge read the book and loved every minute of it. I thought it was a little unbelievable that Lily opened up and told a total stranger everything about herself, but it didn't detract from the book. Read full review
