Christina Skye has given us another great story in Code Name: Princess. This is Jess Mulchaney's story, we got a glimpse of her in Summerís story, Code Name: Nanny. Only Jess isnít an FBI agent, she is a hotel inspector but she does work undercover. We also get to meet Izzy once again and get a glimpse of Summer as well.

Ms. Skye must like shower scenes because once again, we have one in this book and it is how they meet for the first time. Only this time around, it is Jess who is in the shower with Hawk watching. And watching he does, as somehow Jess is in his room. He isnít sure how that happened or why, but he will find out or so he thinks.

They argue with each other but they stick together and help the other one out when needed. They are attracted to one another and they both fight it but in the end, Jess needs the comfort that Hawk can give her with his body, while they are stuck together in an elevator. Jess can sense that Hawk isnít as tough as he wants others to believe and she isnít afraid of him like everyone else is. Yes, Hawk is another Navy SEAL and what a fine specimen he is.

It seems that Jess has walked right into a secret mission that could get her killed, as well as everyone else that stands in the way of retrieving the package. The package was stolen and now lost and in the midst of this mission is Jess, who doesnít know what is happening but she knows that she just wants to get home. The only problem is the weather, it is causing havoc with downed trees, power lines and flooding, of course this is the same storm that caused Jess and Hawk to get stuck in the elevator.

When the going gets tough it seems that Izzy is there to lend a hand in one way or another. Just wait until you see him in this story and what stunts he pulls.

I canít say how much I enjoyed Code Name: Princess, I read it in one sitting. I just kept turning the page to find out what would happen next with either Jess, Hawk, Izzy and everyone else involved in trying to recover this package. It was also fascinating to see the trouble Jess would get into and not even realize it and how she was able to deal with one of her greatest fears. To see the change in Hawk when he was around Jess, made you fall in love with him. It was like I was beside them from the beginning of the story to the end, during the less hectic and frantic moments to the most dangerous ones. I canít wait to see more of Izzy and what Ms. Skye has planned for us.
