Publisher's Summary

The end to his story has already been written…

Brad Steel made a promise to his wife and children - to create a legacy born from his love for them and his desire to protect them from harm. It was a worthy ambition…

But along the way, something went terribly wrong.

Daphne Steel loves her husband beyond measure and will stand by him no matter what, even when it's more than she can deal with. She escapes when she must, still always putting Brad and their children first. 

Mysteries deepen, secrets are unveiled, and Brad vows to continue to protect his family at all costs. But is the price too high? The lies and misdeeds get easier and easier, until he descends to a place he swore he'd never go. 

There's no turning back, though, and his actions have consequences - for those he did everything to protect.

What an Awesome Ending

That was one of the best endings to a book series that I have ever read. She did a great job wrapping it all up and making you feel like all your questions were answered. I’m so sad it all over but I enjoyed every minute of this series. Definitely one of my all time favorites.

Always so good!!!!

I always start these books and think to myself there is no way she can keep this story going and make it as good as the previous ones. She always proves me wrong. I love this series, and at the end of this book I feel like there were so many questions that had finally been answered! Well done!

OMG!!!

The story of Brad & Daphne, by far is my favorite. Helen Hardt, is very good at these series. Brad, was a good man, he took on the job of protecting Daphne, from the very beginning and then fell in love with her he never waivered from doing that and he loved her til the very end. George, did try to make a mends by letting Maisy, go and faking his death to help Brad, and putting things in place for him. I love their story!!❤❤❤ Laurie. West, and Teddy Hamilton, did a Fantastic job narrating! Helen Hardt, you have a lifelong fan, I love your work!!

I loved this series so much. I’m so sad it’s the last one. After reading the first one I was hooked.

Wow!

Loved the ending! Listened to it a few times! I will admit it was a little rough listening to how much Brad would keep from Daphne and stayed away so much when we, as a readers, knew what she was going through .

This can’t be the end!

Like all the other books in the series I couldn’t stop reading it! It answered a lot of questions that the Steel boys didn’t know the answers to in the previous books and brought some clarity as to why Daddy Steel did the things he did. He had difficult choices to make and did what he needed to do to keep his family safe. The decisions might not have been the most ethical, but he wasn’t given much of a choice. The one question I would still like to know the answer to is...What else is inside the stuffed dog.

Emotionally heartbreaking

I loved this book off the Steel Brothers Series. It had me in tears. My heart went out to Brad and his wife. They went through so much pain. Well the whole family did. Thank you Helen Hardt and to the two Narrator's. Amazing job. 👏🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
