176. Chosen by Desire by Kate Perry...

October 7, 2009
chosen by desireAbout the book:
It's down to the wire and Carrie Woods is leaving China without the proof she needs for her thesis: Wei Lin's journal. While on a final tour of the monastery, Carrie finally locates the scrolls and attempts to photograph the documents. Caught in a sticky situation, Carrie takes the scrolls, only to notice a mysterious monk watching her—the same monk that she's seen each time she's taken a tour. Unable to return the scrolls, she travels back to California and isn't too thrilled when she notices the monk at the airport.

Maximillian Prescott first came to the monastery as an orphaned teenager when he inherited the Book of Metal from a distant uncle he hardly knew. After spotting a woman stealing from the monastery, he follows her to get back the documents he knows she's stolen. Max is further intrigued when he finds out that the chatty woman is friends with his archrival, Rhys Llewellyn, and he will stop at nothing to get back everything he's lost.

drey's thoughts:
Kate Perry's 2nd Guardians of Destiny book is a very enjoyable, action-packed, quick read. If you're new here, you'll probably want to know that most books are quick reads for me, lol! But really. Carrie is a cool heroine. Like when she asks Max to teach her kung fu.
I bet I'd be a really good martial artist. I think I was a kung fu princess in a previous lifetime.
If you couldn't tell--yes, she's sassy. As for Max... Well, Max needs to get over his hangups. Broody is so over, dude.

There's a pretty good plot line, and lots of action. What else would you expect with a hot kung fu guy for a hero, a pile of stolen scrolls, and a very determined thief all in the mix? So. If romance + mystery + action + lots-of-references-to-China is your thing, then get this.
