I just loved this story: the plot, the visuals, the personalities were all very creative. It seemed way beyond AU to me, as the personalities of NS and IK were so unexpected. But that made it refreshing and quite fascinating. I hope there is a sequel, as I was looking forward to seeing Napoleon use his martial arts training. Thanks for such an entertaining read.

This story is amazing! I love the details about Tahiti. I enjoyed that Illya is the worldly one and Napoleon the shy wallflower. And great surprise that Illya is wealthy, too. And, I mean really, being forced to live in Paradise to be with the one you love; we should all have problems like that.

Very different take on Napoleon and Illya. Hard to see Napoleon as a bit of a wimp. Like the way that their relationship progressed. Great adventure. Great ending.

I loved this story! I've never read any story set in Tahiti or even in the tropics but it sure sounds like you know your locale, language and visuals. What a great place, remote, tropical and still all the modern conveniences. It was a different take with Illya leading the show, guiding the hesitant novice in Napoleon, but it all did fit just right. Very nicely done. Mystery, intrigue, romance..it had it all. I caught the little nod to Uncle Alex too, nice touch. And the last line with Napoleon telling Illya "C'mon, I'm ready to go home" just goes to show that no matter what Universe they're written in, AU, UNCLE, whatever..those two will always belong together. So that leaves the question, will there be more in this Universe..maybe another new totally different Universe? What's next?

What an unexpected treat! I loved this! I confess to being a sucker for happy ending AUs and the setting and mystery just made it meatier and more fun to read. Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us.

This was very different, and yet the characters personalities are similar to the MFU universe in little ways. Napoleon made himself a fighter, fought to overcome the damage done to him by his mother. Illya still secretive and also quite deadly in his way. Love the happy ending!
You should try this again, writing them in a different world from the one we know. Neat idea!

Okay where's my sequel? Or better yet my next series.
I love this AU its AWESOME.
I love your other series the cook ones as well and read those quite often.
But I really would love to see more adventures done in this world. It had all the makings of a murder mystery without the whole murder thing.
please please please if you can, write more in this AU as well.
I think I need to go and reread it cause it was so perfect.
please write more in it PLEASE.
pretty please with ice cream, fudge, whip cream sprinkles and a strawberry on top? I'm not a cherry fan but love strawberries.
Oh I so want to see more written in this universe now.
I had a hard time putting it down when I had to go to work. Then I read what I could between routes at work on my breaks.
look forward to seeing more of your writing overall but this, this is just splendid.
Sorry if I'm begging to much but my god this was good.
Keep up the great work. I hope you will write more with this AU in mind.
