Top-Secret Bride (Mission: Impassioned #3) (Silhouette Romantic Suspense #1480) - Nina Bruhns Working undercover in a jewelry store, Marina Bond, with the SIS, overhears a suspicious phone conversation about the man who once saved her life, Corbett Lazlo. She immediately contacts him, requesting a meeting, but he sends one of his top agents, DeWitt von Kreus instead.Inside the hotel room, a rather flustered Marina invokes the Denmark protocol, he invokes it as well, and the two end up having their conversation naked. Unfortunately being naked inside a hotel room with a South African stud-muffin quickly leads to things that don't require much conversation, but when she decides to leave without even considering Witt's demand to see her again, he follows and someone shoots at them in front of the hotel.Witt's protective instincts (coupled with a severe case of lust) kick in and he soon horns into her operation. Now they must work together to uncover just who wants one of them dead, the mole inside SIS, and bring to justice an Angolan crime lord trafficking in blood diamonds. All the while without constantly jumping each other's bones and risking their hearts in the process. Tough gig.I don't believe in God, but let me take a moment....Thank you Lord! Hallelujah!...Moment over.I was truly beginning to despair, but lucky I have the wonderful [a:Nina Bruhns|50896|Nina Bruhns|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1322691982p2/50896.jpg] to thank for putting me out of my misery.This story had it (almost) all. The plot was great and perfectly (compared to the first two in the series) executed, I loved the style, the pacing...Everything.The characters came alive for me. Finally! Marina with her tough-as-nails attitude but so scared deep inside, DeWitt with his devilish charm that hid the deep emotional scars from his past. What is there not to love about these two? Well, maybe the lack of communication, but we can't have it all, can we? The man has to be a little thick (chicks aren't mind readers, you know) and the girl has to be a bit too insecure so she runs from him, and realizes her mistake when it's almost too late, but then a light bulb light up above the the guy's thick head and he swoops in and saves the day.They were perfect together, you could see where they were headed, despite their stubbornness, and the wait (though painful at times) was worth it.My favorite part of their story? When he was high and loopy from the painkillers in the hospital. Awww.This wasn't as suspenseful as it could've been, but the pace certainly didn't suffer for the lack of it. I missed the Dumont (DuMond) family from the first two books, though. Yes, the villain was obscurely connected to them, but the total lack of appearance kinda bugged me, while still keeping me at the edge of my seat wondering just how deeply they are connected to everything going on and what they might plot next.A great read that restored my faith in the rest of the miniseries. Lazlo's story couldn't come soon enough.

No Shortcuts to the Top: Climbing the World's 14 Highest Peaks
No Shortcuts to the Top: Climbing the World's 14 Highest Peaks - Ed Viesturs,David Roberts If you know someone who's thinking about taking up mountain climbing, give him/her a copy of this book. Equal parts adventure story and cautionary tale, this book relates the author's harrowing stories of survival on some of the highest peaks on the planet. The difference between Viesturs' story and that of many other mountaineers is that getting home alive is always the foremost thought in his mind. He has turned around and gone home within sight of his goals many times, and that's why he's still alive to tell the tales.
