Written by Jane D. Everly, Havelock is a story about an anonymous (basically) woman who had a chance encounter with the MI6 and decided to turn it to her advantage. The book is the first in a series of books. The first part is short (63 pages) and easy to read.
Eliana is a different woman. She has superior combat training and can take on two armed drug dealers by herself, tied to a chair. She is after information, but what? Or who? When Agent Blackwell of MI6 happens upon her after their raid on the Mexican drug cell, he decides to take her back to London with him. After a display of skills, wit, and carefully selected information MI6 is left no choice than to join forces with this stranger to bring down a drug cartel. This in order to keep their organization alive.
I love Eliana. I think a lot of women would secretly aspire to be her: hot and kickass. I also think she and Agent Blackwell are in for a funny, very bumpy ride. There’s going to be a lot of bruising and scraping, and maybe not just physical ones.
I love Everly’s sense of humour. However, I felt that I was pushed into the story too quickly, i.e., there was not enough build up. I would love to read the next installment, if not to find out who Eliana really is and what she’s truly after, then for the humor and for the detailed description of every fight move. Lol.
