Midnight Star, the second of the four Star novels, is the story of Delaney Saxton, a man who struck it rich in the California gold rush of 1849 and stayed to build a great city, and Chauncey FitzHugh, an heiress from England who travels to San Francisco to avenge her father. She believes Delaney Saxton ruined him and plans to destroy Saxton in the same way he destroyed her father - leaving him betrayed and penniless.
But her prey isn’t what she expected. He is charming, too handsome for his own good, rich - and elusive as a wisp of smoke. As for Chauncey, bright and creative as she is, she can’t come up with a plan to ruin him financially until, quite by accident, she is hurt and ends up in his bed and in his care. Naturally, one thing leads to another.
Chauncey gains what she wants, but soon the tables are turned. These two strong-willed people must overcome their distrust of each other and deal with a relentless killer from halfway across the world.
You’ll also meet Brent Hammond and Saint Morris, the two lovely men from the final “Quadruplets” - Wild Star and Jade Star.

Again, I just couldn't get passed the narrator's voice which ruined the book for me - in fact I had it on double speed and then kept forwarding the chapters to get to the end partly also due to the fact that I couldn't warm to the female character's stupidity! The plus points were that I liked Delaney's character.
I've already downloaded the 3rd book so I suppose I'll have to give it a try - let's hope that one doesn't have the same theme that the previous 2 had namely weak, whiney, whinge women .
Worth the credit? - Naah, not in my opinion.
