Melina is one of two gorgeous twin daughters, the clever and considerate one who always spared her parents the humiliation of what her sister Maria had wrought. But now, Melina is finally ready to stand up for herself and seize control of her life—until she is kidnapped by a cowboy, named Jardin, who is dead-set on settling the score with her family. There’s only one catch: In capturing Melina, this tough, rough, hunk of a man has actually found a way to unleash her greatest fantasies, body and soul. . .

Beautiful, spirited Angel Manning has always longed to experience the power of her ancestors’ most precious heirloom. Her mother once told her that the legendary Irish torque would lead Angel to the one man worthy of possessing her heart. But when Angel learns that her father, now a widower, has sold the torque to the notorious two-timer Jack Riley, she is furious. Of course she plans to take back what is rightfully hers, by whatever means necessary. But the fate of the ancient Druids works in mysterious ways. . .Could it be that this slick, smooth-talking cowboy was destined to satisfy Angel’s deepest desires all along?

What a dramatic opening....this is not for the prudish person. Author Lora Leigh continues her outstanding writing with this first book of the series. It deals with betrayal, revenge, mistaken identity and not only a dysfunctional family but how a family survives from it all.

Melinda's character is gutsy, loving and ready for change. Through some heartbreaking events all of this happens in this story and she finally gets what she deserves in a most unusual way.

Jardin, you can tell from the beginning is a nice guy but unfortunately he is bent on revenge which keeps the reader wondering how this story can end in a HEA. But for this reader I was very satisfied with the extremely dramatic ending.

Jack and Angel as primary characters keep the reader glued to the pages with their antagonistic interactions. The author does a superb job of keeping their push and pull relationship interesting without it becoming annoying. I quite enjoyed her letting Jack know in no uncertain terms exactly what she thought about him.

The added Druid component was the right twist to this story. I do recommend you NOT read this book in a crowded place because it is that hot and descriptive in most of the scenes.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

Lora Leigh lives in the rolling hills of Kentucky, often found absorbing the ambience of this peaceful setting. She dreams in bright, vivid images of the characters intent on taking over her writing life, and fights a constant battle to put them on the hard drive of her computer before they can disappear as fast as they appeared. Lora’s family, and her writing life co-exist, if not in harmony, in relative peace with each other. Surrounded by a menagerie of pets, friends, and a teenage son who keeps her quick wit engaged, Lora’s life is filled with joys, aided by her fans whose hearts remind her daily why she writes.
