Publisher's Summary

For more than a year, Royce Melborn has tried to forget Gwen DeLancy, the woman who saved him and his partner Hadrian Blackwater. Unable to stay away any longer, they return to Medford to a very different reception - she refuses to see them.
Once more she is shielding them, this time from the powerful noble who abused her. But she doesn’t know the rules Royce would break to see her safe.

Amazing as always!

I laughed and I cried, yelled at my phone in anger and clapped in relief, what more is there to say?

Absolute entertainment

perfectly timed events in a story line so wonderfully pitched that I am discovering even greater pleasure on my fourth reading.

Reasonable follow up

Story was fine when Royce and Hadrian were involved but dragged when they were not - the other main characters did not get my interest

still brilliant

Although the second chronologically, this was the third book I listened to and I'm now completely hooked! All three have been thoroughly enjoyable and I like the fact the narrator is the same throughout.

exciting but lacking something<br />

i found prequel story quite intriguing and enjoyable having read original series and being "in the know" to future advents but i found voice's of the character i know and loved lacking (this probably a fault on my part having read the four other books)
