Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s novel of dangerous secrets, dark pasts, and sizzling heat.

No one would guess that dedicated teacher Arden Forbes is a billionaire. His profession gives him a purpose that wealth alone can’t provide. He’s developing another passion, too, for Keera Thompson, the new principal. She’s beautiful, enigmatic, guarded, and - after a series of violent school break-ins - in need of protection. And Arden is eager to supply it. But what he wants most is to unearth the mysteries that surround her.

After a troubling past, Keera thought she’d be safe in this sleepy town and that she’d never be shaken again. Yet nothing has unsettled Keera more than her desire for Arden - honorable, gorgeous, and available when she craves him. But despite their explosive chemistry, when it comes to letting Arden in, Keera has her limits...and her secrets.

As the threats escalate, Keera fears that everything she’s been running from is closing in, and there’s only one man to trust. But will the truth drive Arden away...or will it bring the two closer than ever before?

Melody new or old?

I'm trying to recall if i have read anything from Melanie before? Such a great read or listen actually. this one is a bit more difficult at times to follow than when you listen (read) Kian ... for me at least ... all those similar names ... I got a bit confused. at times. well several actually. ( :

So disappointed in this story. Child like imaginat

I was really looking forward to listening to this book. What an utter
disappointment.
The female character had her head up her butt so far she couldn't see sunshine. No one is that ignorant. It just isn't possible. The female narrator didn't help the story out either. She narrated like an excited child experiencing on fantastical adventure after another. Exceptionally poor story and narrator.

I'm not even sure why I gave this two stars. Probably one star would be generous.

Good story line

This has a good story line. The narration is a little over dramatized for my taste. If Kristin could tone it down a little this could be a 5 * listen . I enjoy reading /listening to series about families especially brothers. So keep coming melody .... This is a great one.

Wonderful second book looking forward to Devil and and Owens story. Don't like that the mystery was left open, but I enjoyed the story

Excellent Book, narrator distracting

I love Melody Anne's books. They never disappoint. Her story and character development are always topnotch. However, the narrator is distracting. To be fair her diction is excellent but the inflection in her voice is inexperienced. If I had not already read the book I probably would have given on listening.
