Melanie Rivers is an author of children’s books and occasionally helps her brother locate people.  When her best friend approaches her about finding a foster boy from the past, she is reluctant to bring back bad memories for the family.  In her search, she locates Nick, a man she believes knows more about Adam than he is relating.  Only Melanie is not prepared for the hot, sizzling passion that burns out of control between them.  She knows that Nick is holding secrets and she is determined to have them revealed.  Will Melanie stand and fight for her love when she learns of Nick’s dark secrets?

Nick Sinclair is an attorney for abused children.  He has devoted his career to prevent children from enduring the horrors of his youth.  One night while returning to his office, he discovers a damsel in distress.  However, he was ill-equipped for the instant attraction to the leggy red head.  But when he discovers her real reason for being there, he knows he should walk away but his heart will not let him hide from the past anymore.   Will Nick learn to trust his heart and allow love to shine in his dark world?  Or will the horrid past of his youth cause him to push away the only woman who could set his heart free?


LOCKED IN HIS HEART is a breath-taking tale of how love can brighten the darkest of worlds.  Catherine Stang pens an intriguing plot with charismatic characters that will steal your heart.  I was so captivated by this edgy tale, I finished it in one night because I had to see how it would all play out.  I cried throughout the whole book.  It is heart-breaking and at the end you will cheer and cry that love won the day.   There are many facets to this story that will keep you guessing as to what will happen next.


Nick is a dark hero that I fell in love with instantly.  His story is powerful and poignant.  He is a stubborn man who is determined to forget his past, but when love comes knocking, he is thrown back into the world that could destroy him.  He falls head over heels for Melanie and soon realizes that she is his salvation. 


Melanie is a warm and tenacious character.  She is a woman who loves with all her heart and is not willing to give up when things are going down hill.  She knows that Nick is holding back, but she is determined to stand by his side. 


Within LOCKED IN HIS HEART you will find secondary tales that are just as wonderfully crafted as the main story.  Ms. Stang does a beautiful job weaving all their stories into an explosive ending. 


If you are looking for an edgy, heartbreaking tale with a fairy tale ending, then I highly recommend reading LOCKED IN HIS HEART.  I look forward to reading more of Catherine Stang’s enchanting books.
