This was a gripping read with truly engaging characters. This book is an excellent mix of romance and intrigue, and is a nice change of pace from so many cookie-cutter romances. Stephen Dagmur is a compelling and somewhat tortured hero, and the heroine is innocent but strong and resilient. An excellent start to a new series and doesn’t end on a cliffhanger. I look forward to more from this author. You can get the book at AMAZON.
