This was a REALLY good story. Shirlee defines her characters so well. The dialog is snappy and she really motivates you to keep turning pages. Martha is strong and yet she struggles with things that you and I experience. Tristan is a great hero who is strong and protective yet apprehensive of a relationship because of his job. I HIGHLY recommend this story for anyone who enjoys a fast paced story. Full of suspense, romance and humor. I loved Tristan's family and can't wait to read Grayson's story.
