This book pretty much sucked me in from the beginning. It was definitely a page turner for me. This is the first book I have read from this author and it will not be the last. I loved the character development and the tension between the two main characters was great. Lauren and Rafe brought out the best in each other.
Lauren Alcott is definitely not a meek woman. She is smart, has a quite a temper and is stubborn to boot. She is also a romantic and when her betrothed shows no heroic gumption in rescuing two ladies who were drowning, she decides that she doesn’t want to marry a coward and expresses that by flinging her ring back at Rafe.
Rafe Townsend is a total workaholic and feels that he doesn’t need to change in any way. In the beginning I thought that he was way more concerned with what he was gaining out of the marriage witch was money not a pretty plunky other half. As the book moves a long he does have a change of heart.
I really enjoyed reading along as they grew to know each other and their feelings started to change too. I loved the ride the author took me on while reading this book. From the meddling family members, crazy adventures, horrible villains and kidnapping!!! Buckle up because this book will have you turning the pages to see what happens next. I look forward to reading more in the future from this author.
