What follows is an adventure that no one least of all the main characters expect. I enjoyed this book and despite its shortness it packs a lot of story. Full of heartbreak, danger, and romance this is a compelling romance that grips you from the beginning. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys an independent woman and rakish man
