Caroline Lake is desperately in need of a boarder, as the recent death of her young brother has left her with massive medical debts. Then a tall stranger arrives in her shop, watching her with special intensity. Though Jack Prescott looks dangerous and awakens dark feelings, Caroline’s soft heart melts when she see his rough, cheap clothes. Jack is down on his luck and she knows all about that. What Caroline doesn’t know is that Jack has $21 million in blood diamonds taken from a rogue operative in Africa, or that Jack has spent the past 12 years dreaming of her…
If you are looking for a steamy read, a little suspense, and an easy read, then this is the book. The sex scenes were steamy and hot. The author offered some suspense with the diamond stealing and stalker. The plot was pretty bland though.
I loved how we got a small glimpse of the hero’s life when he was little at the beginning of the book. It made his obsession with the heroine believable. What I didn’t like is how the hero portrayed his feelings for the heroine as more lust than love. The story is predictable. The ending is predictable. But, if you look past that and read it, the book was pretty good. I enjoyed their dialogue and the way he was protective of her. I love how the heroine has overcome grief and still made a life for herself.
A Good Book and Read! Perfect For Rainy Days
