One of the best compliments I’ve received was from an editor who claimed to be blown away that I was the author of the Sea of Love sexy sailing series as well as the intriguing The Devil’s Valet. He said I had two such distinct voices he would never have guessed I’d written each of them. I wrote The Devil’s Valet between A Port of No Return and The Shadows of the Sea. I had refinanced my house to give me the freedom to write three novels in three years. I guess the devil made me do.

The environments are intoxicating, the characters filled with power and passion. And, even though Crosby’s handsome husband is villainous, McKellar makes him a truly tragic figure. She avoids what I like to call the cookie cutter character pitfall, which is refreshing. Even characters with few redeeming qualities are complex. Nothing is entirely black or white. -– Linda Lane, Las Vegas Woman Magazine
We just go all over the world in this hot tale of seduction and murder. It’s got all the parts of a typical recipe, but the baker didn’t make a cake out of it. You’ll find McKellar stirred up something a little richer than you’re used to. I had a heck of a time putting it down to go to work, and then I thought about it all day until I could get my hands back on it and finish it. It was that good. – 5.0 out of 5 stars A.

A chance meeting with her favorite movie star snares a young woman in a web of ambition, betrayal and revenge…McKellar (A Port of No Return, 2006, etc.) has created a strong, empathetic heroine, and she renders the world she moves in in convincing detail. The over-the-top plot may prove rough going for some readers, but others will find it a rollicking good ride. A frothy diversion worthy of a Lifetime movie. – Kirkus Review
