In the Shadow of a Hero - Anna Mayle This was really good. Beautiful writing; you could call it prose at times. It suffered a bit from repetition. There were lengthy parts who could've profited from trimming, but those were balanced by breathtakingly fast action sequences and beautiful, deeply emotional love scenes, so nothing to complain about too loudly. I'd classify this as a definite GFY, as Nick was never attracted to men before. But I liked his consequence once he had accepted the fact that he'd fallen for a man, and I didn't find it too far-fetched - he and Maxwell completed each other so perfectly. Two very likeable heroes, a mean villain, a gripping plot and interesting supportive characters made this book a really enjoyable read. Recommended.
