"Tantalizing! Highly recommended...Sensual romance meets danger and intrigue. The heat of the Caribbean seeps into every page, emphasizing this suspenseful novel's passionate, treacherous edge. Indeed, tantalizing love scenes intersperse suspicious characters and surprise revelations, thereby keeping the pages turning!"—Cindy Penn, WordWeaving
"This one is a page-turner!...EPPIE-winning Dee Lloyd's novel of romance and suspense is a thrilling trip through tropical nights and sunlit days to ports of call that come alive through her skillful descriptions. Not just the sights but the sounds and smells and tastes surround the reader, so that the pleasure of reading becomes the pleasure of experiencing. Into this riot of color and sensation she places two delightfully human people who cautiously surrender to feelings they had never really planned to enjoy. Sara and Mike are intelligent, courageous, caring characters certain to remind the reader of someone they know—or would very much like to know. Add a conspiracy to peddle plans for state-of-the-art electronic equipment, a group of villains whose occasional ineptitude doesn't temper the danger they pose to Sara and, by extension, Mike, and you have a tale of love and suspicion and jeopardy that moves so quickly the reader doesn't dare put the book aside for even a moment. Change of Plans deserves to be read more than once, and probably will be by those lucky enough to have a copy."—Blue Iris Journal
"4 Stars!...I felt as if I were on a roller coaster ride through this book. I stayed on the edge of my seat, nibbling my nails until I finished."—Kathy Boswell, Romantic Times Magazine
"...An intensely romantic, wonderfully mysterious story set within the beautiful scenery of the Caribbean...A mystery in need of solving, a woman in need of protecting, and a man in need of loving: the perfect recipe for a good romantic mystery. Dee Lloyd mixes all the right ingredients into a good one."—Julia, Writers Club Romance Group on AOL
"...A very good story filled with romance, suspense, and intrigue. Mike and Sara are the kind of characters that keep things interesting. The secondary characters, the nasty ones, and the ones that are secret agents, never overpower the story. I loved this story and thought the way it ended was exciting."—Hattie Boyd, Scribes World Reviews
"Masterful!...With a fascinating blend of light-hearted moments and suspense-filled exploits, Change of Plans is an extremely well-written book. The characters are lively and realistic, the setting is exotic and romantic, and the plot is both warm and thrilling. It’s difficult to resist this story full of touching romance and international intrigue.
Firmly in control of the pace at all times, Ms. Lloyd will take the reader from moonlight dinners to alarming attacks without batting an eye. The slower moments accentuate the action, and the romance enhances the danger, in this expertly woven story. Full of romance, mystery, and action, Change of Plans is an exciting ride from page one. Dee Lloyd has masterfully combined these exciting elements into a story designed to keep the reader enthralled.”—Sally Laturi, Ivy Quill Reviews
"Highly Recommended!...A tale full of suspense, intrigue, action and a beautiful romance. All aspects of this book blend into a splendid novel...Ms Lloyd has penned a suspenseful story that will keep you on the edge of your seat well into the wee hours of the morning!...I highly recommend Change of Plans if you are in the mood for suspense and romance.”—Carol Durfee, Romance Reviews Today
"What a passionate story! ....intriguing and tantalizing. I couldn't put it down."--Nancy Peckford, Novelspot
"...Has a great undertow of suspense that keeps in step with the romance. Mike and Sara have no plans for a shipboard romance as one was angry from a failed romance and the other has never discovered what true love is. Both try to protect the other from a broken heart until it’s too late and they realize that they have fallen in love. I found that the level of suspense was just right to keep me turning the pages to see what would happen next. Change of Plans reminds us that just because the cruise is over and you have to leave the ship it does not mean the romance has to end."--Jo, Joyfully Reviewed.com
"5 Angels!...A delightfully exciting, romantic suspense tale. I love books with strong female characters and this book has more than one. Sara is no pushover and even when she is threatened she refuses to just stand around and be protected; she wants to be involved...There is obviously an undercurrent of things happening around Sara from the beginning of the book and the suspense carries all the way through to the end. The action and the romance are fast paced and captivate the reader’s imagination and take them along for the ride...I enjoy Ms. Lloyd’s writing style and sense of fun and adventure and Change of Plans is another good book from Ms. Lloyd. I also enjoy spy/secret agent type adventures and there are some great characters to work with from this story..."--Stephanie B., Fallen Angel Reviews
...“I’ve never danced with anyone like you, love,” Mike whispered, his voice dark and husky. “You move like a flame at my fingertips.”
He turned her around to face him and pulled her hips deliberately against him. “This is how we should have ended that tango.”
His mouth was hard and hot on hers. Then, as he drove his tongue deep into her mouth, he bent her back over the railing for a long moment in the classic dip of the tango. She clung to his shoulders, while smoldering need for him flared through her body. When they straightened, his hands caressed her bare back and shoulders, then the silk that covered the curves of her hips. As he pressed her urgently against his heat, his lips moved hungrily over hers. Sara heard herself moan softly into his mouth.
“The next steps of this tango demand more privacy.”
His breathing was erratic and she could feel the urgency of his arousal through the silk of her dress. His eyes, dark as the midnight ocean, questioned.
His kiss had robbed her of her defenses. He was a powerful magnet that called to every tingling cell in her body. She could only nod her assent…
