From the minute he opened the door to her, Slade Madaris has been enamored of Skye. He finds himself drawn to her beauty, inner and outer. Slade begins to do the one thing with Skye he swore he would never do-fall in love! She brings out everything good in him and he just wants to be with her and protect her. Others have controlled Skye for the majority of her life and just when she is gaining her independence, she starts to fall for Slade. She cannot give up her control to yet another person and fight her feelings for Slade. Can Slade convince her he only wants to be a part of her life and not control her life as her former fiancé did? Will Skye allow herself to feel truly loved for the first time in her life or will someone from her past keep them apart?
Ms. Jackson has done it again! Her fiftieth book is a triumph! And how appropriate her fiftieth book is a Madaris novel…the family that started it all for her. The heroine is strong yet vulnerable as all of her female lead characters have been. The hero, Slade Madaris, is everything we are used to Madaris men being. He is sexy, vulnerable, and strong with a hint of dangerous. Ms. Jackson’s stories always focus on love and “happily ever after”. I love a happy ending and this story does not disappoint. I cannot wait for the next Madaris book. I am a die-hard Brenda Jackson fan until the end.
