In Katmandu, Nepal, native Nepalese Betl and American Harrison Wiles of B.L.I.S.S. ask expatriate American tour guide Rachel Calais to help them on a dangerous mission. They need Rachel to lead a trek in search of the legendary city of Yonam where beautiful women allegedly catered to male desires. Harrison believes that a drug causes the obedience that is worse than even date rape drugs as the victim remains lucid while participating in their own depravity. B.L.I.S.S. fears that American Dr. Alan Archer seeks the elixir to take back to the west with him. They want Rachel to serve as his guide and insure he returns with none of the odious elixir that he would synthesize in his lab.

Rachel and Harrison work together to stop Dr. Archer from becoming Dr. Yes with any woman he meets. The duo also tries to ignore their own attraction to one another, but neither can say no to the other even without the aid of a drug. They fall in love, but both know they must first stop Archer and his ploy to control women.

The second B.L.I.S.S. espionage romance is an entertaining high adventure that like its delightful predecessor (see FROM BOARDWALK WITH LOVE) spoofs the macho spy crowd. The amusing story line will remind readers of the Flint movies. The dynamic duo struggles with magnetic heat that can melt the snow of the Himalayas if they are not careful while the villain seems more out of the Maxwell Smart rogue gallery than that of Bond. Still readers of humorous satirical romantic intrigues will say yes to Lisa Cach's latest thriller.
