When Claire found out a devastating secret about her family, the famous Woodley clan, she ran straight into the arms of a criminal and disappeared for years. But now she's desperate to escape his clutches and get back what he's stolen from her: her child. She turns to longtime family horse-master Warrick Blackwood, knowing his secrets can get her close to her target.
War doesn't want to return to the dangerous life he left behind, even to help Claire, but he has no choice. Not only does she know the truth about his past, but he's never been able to resist her. Her frantic attempt to save her daughter will bring them close, revealing both War's dominant nature and his heart, but it may also destroy any hope at the future both secretly long for.

This book is worth the credit purely because it's a continuation of a good series. However, I found myself wanting to slap Claire in the face because she's so irritating. She's completely illogical and dramatic.
Also, did I just miss War in the previous books? His character came completely out of nowhere, but apparently there was a connection between him and Claire for years.
I think there's too much of Claire feeling sorry for herself in this book and not enough actual story. She comes off as self absorbed and unaware of the feelings of those around her. She also makes the worst possible decision in every situation like she never learns from pst mistakes.
