Dante Sinclair never cared about his family’s money. All the ultra-sexy billionaire ever wanted was to be a cop; and now that he’s a homicide detective in Los Angeles, he’s a damn good one. But when he is injured and loses his partner in the line of duty, he returns to his vacation home in Amesport, Maine, to recover. With a mouth as dangerous as the streets he protects, Dante knows no one can ever heal or tame him.
Sarah Baxter, a brilliant young doctor still struggling with her stifled upbringing, has recently moved from Chicago to sleepy Amesport to escape her past, hoping to find peace. When Sarah is assigned to Dante’s case, there’s an instant heat between them. They couldn’t possibly be more different, yet their intense passion is impossible to ignore. As burning desires awaken within Sarah, her haunted past returns, threatening her once again. Can Dante overcome his grief and unravel the secrets Sarah is hiding in time to protect and rescue her?
Another wonderful foray into the world of literary cotton wool. I read this about a month ago and enjoyed this one so much I read it twice. Now I have so many books on my “to read” pile that for me to stop and read a book twice? It has to be a good one. This one was.
The whole premise of the story is of the wounded Dante taking sick leave in which time he decides to come back to Amesport to heal. We recognise Dante as being a gruff man who is accustomed to getting his own way – ALL the time! That is until he meets Sarah Baxter who turns his whole world upside down and she becomes his one and only desire.
The two of them grow closer together and the story coasts along easily to the end. I can’t really say too much without throwing spoilers into the review so I’m going to finish up here and say if you like this genre of book then you will absolutely love this one.
A four out of five star read.
