They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes — but not so much it takes away from the story. Thankfully there was enough tenderness to keep it from being overdone in this book, but Duncan and Madelyn still emotionally held back from each other a little too long for my taste, and their confusion over their feelings for one another seemed a bit forced to me.

Now McKenna has made his fortune, and he has returned – more boldly handsome and more mesmerizing than before. This story just did it for me, great pacing, love, danger, treachery, good conquering evil, amazing complex characters, and I loved reading the little quotes at the beginning of each chapter.
The writing was very good. Garwood’s books being on the steamy side, but either my memory has deceived me or this one just wasn’t quite as hot as some of her others.
