Danger once again laps at the shores of Barkley Sound, the Graveyard of the Pacific.…
It may be summer, but schoolteacher Anna Silver’s trip to the coastal town of Bamfield is anything but a vacation. She’s on the run, desperate to stay one step ahead of her father’s murderer and determined to track down the one man she’s been told to trust: her father’s old cell mate, Brent Carver. But when she finds him, she discovers not a kind, elderly artist but a dangerously hot alpha male with blood on his hands.
Loyal to the core, Brent would never turn away his friend’s daughter when she comes seeking help. He can’t deny Anna his protection…just as he can’t deny the instantaneous attraction he struggles to keep in check. But as their passion blazes out of control, a sadistic killer is on the hunt to stop Anna from uncovering his dark secrets.

Suspense, excitement, growing and learning of the characters, putting faith and believing in ones self.
When she found out her father was one of the good guys, it put faith and love back into her family and brought them back together
Brent, I loved the voice she gave him, the passion she put into it. Emily made him seem real, his pain, sorrow and he coming to realize he did what he had to do to protect those he loved. His forgiveness of his self.
This was a book that my husband and I could listen to together to give us some us time that we did enjoy very much. Toni gives so much to her readers as she tells a compelling compassionate story of lose, love, pain, sorrow, forgiveness, starting over and learning to live again while she keeps you on the edge of your seat with her suspense, the chase.
Anna has been through so much and still has confidence not only in herself but those around her. Most would have fallen and let the world take over. Anna is a very strong character who grows through out the book to become a women she can be proud of. She refuses to become a victim but take the bull by the horn as she is in a race for not only her life but others she holds dear as she tries to find the clues to who killed her father before they find and kill her.
Brent is pulled into the fast pace suspense when his friend sends his daughter to him for safe keeping as he falls to his death. He works through the clues as he races to keep his best friends daughter alive and prove her father is innocent. Brent is a strong character who would do anything for those he loves as he has done in the past. He is hiding from the world but all that is about to change with one women who rocks his world in more ways than one.
Both Anna and Brent have a very painful past they want to forget but can never forgive themselves or others. They learn to grow into wonderful characters and come to realize that sometimes you have to do what you have to do but this does not make you a bad person. You need to grab life and live it like there is no tomorrow as these who wonderful characters find out.
Toni is one of my favorite authors who grabs you from the first page with thrills and suspense you do not want to put her books down. The things I love about this story is the characters they must forgive themselves, learn to become the people the need to be as well as letting others in their life. We have no control of those around us we can only do as we feel is best and hope for the best. Mistakes might be made but that does not make us bad, we pay the price and learn but in most cases we would do it all the same again because of those we love as Brent found out. I loved watching these character develop as only Toni can do.
Toni always has me so into her writing as her narrators gives me chills with her telling of the story. Emily Beresford is an outstanding narrator who has a smooth voice with such passion. She brings so much to her audio's that you can feel the pain of each character.
Between the two you never know what is coming next and are always surprised at what Toni has in store for you. She gives you a pretty clean read with lots of steamy passion, two characters have a strong pull and attraction which is written in a way that compliments the story. You feel you are part of it as the author gives her characters meaning and makes two worlds right again. I have been hook on Toni as an author since the first audio of hers I listened to. She knows how to keep you on the edge as she pulls you in and keeps you hanging. I know Toni will always give me an outstanding read of suspense, and excitement that will get my heart pumping with thrills as she takes me on a wild ride of who done it and why.
I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!
This was an Audible.com recommendation. The synopsis sounded interesting, as did the narration sample. The reviews were favorable too. Why not. If I didn't like it, I could return it. I'm glad I did as I throughly enjoyed the listen! And now it's in our library waiting for my husband turn.
If, like me, you've done the above, you only await my verdict. I do recommend this book...with one caveat: there are some X-rated scenes. I mention this because some readers are very sensitive. I did not feel the scenes offensive based upon the histories of the main characters.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
No, this was a good, fast pace story, but a weak heroine that discovers inner strength does not appeal to me when it takes 6 hrs for her to discover it!. If you like this type of story, then this is a good one. Good dialogue, but way too much inner self talk.
Yes, as it took 6.5 hrs to figure out the real culprit.
Good new reader for me. This book was on sale and it was a good spend. This had fire and rage.
Some of actions from the females just got on my nerves. A lot way too late!
this had some strong violence against woman so beware
These characters have more baggage than an airport. It was melodramatic and over the top, but amusing. It was not overly erotic. The narration was good, not a Julia Whelan narration, but okay. It was a good summer listen while house cleaning.
Just because it didn't get four stars doesn't mean it's not good. It's just not great. It won't stand out among many other romantic thrillers.
