The Spy's Love Song by Kim Fielding

For a singer and a spy, love might be mission impossible.

Jaxon Powers has what most only dream of. Fame. Fortune. Gold records and Grammy awards. Lavish hotel suites and an endless parade of eager bedmates. He’s adored all over the world—even in the remote, repressive country of Vasnytsia, where the tyrannical dictator is a big fan. The State Department hopes a performance might improve US relations with a dangerous enemy. But it means Jaxon’s going in alone… with one exception.

Secret agent Reid Stanfill has a covert agenda with global ramifications. Duty means everything to him, even when it involves protecting a jaded rock star. Jaxon and Reid’s mutual attraction is dangerous under Vasnytsia’s harsh laws—and matters get even worse when they’re trapped inside the borders. Romance will have to wait… assuming they make it out alive.

This is a cracking romantic adventure that kept me riveted and made me happy. True, the story is a completely implausible flight of fancy, but Jaxon captured my heart in the first chapter and I couldn’t put his book down.

When rock star Jaxon is invited by the State Department to visit a tiny dictatorship as a goodwill gesture, he finds himself accompanied by Reid, a sexy secret agent posing as his assistant. Vasnytsia seems to be a cross between North Korea and Chechnya and Reid and Jaxon quickly find themselves in more trouble than they anticipated.

Nothing about this story is plausible – but I loved every moment. Some of the descriptions of the country and the food will be familiar to anyone who has travelled in former Soviet bloc countries, but the rest is gold dust from Kim Fielding’s unrivalled imagination. Reid and Jaxon’s love/hate relationship is good fun and chemistry crackles between them. Jaxon’s journey from bored, spoiled rock star to revolutionary martyr is highly entertaining.

This book pulled me out of a bit of a reading funk and I loved it. It reads like a self-aware Clive Cussler novel – or maybe Dirk Pitt meets Austin Powers? Anyways. A great read.

KIM FIELDING is very pleased every time someone calls her eclectic. Her books have won Rainbow Awards and span a variety of genres. She has migrated back and forth across the western two-thirds of the United States and currently lives in California, where she long ago ran out of bookshelf space. She’s a university professor who dreams of being able to travel and write full-time. She also dreams of having two perfectly behaved children, a husband who isn’t obsessed with football, and a house that cleans itself. Some dreams are more easily obtained than others.
