Publisher's Summary

Nathalyia Fontaine has been the sole proprietor of the restaurant Fontaine since her husband died four years ago. She hasn't dated anyone in all those years, choosing not to open her heart again, or risk revealing her dark past.

That is, until she meets Rafael Dunlap. Rafael is a hostage negotiator with his own set of problems. Though he loves women, he vows he'll never marry because his job is just too unpredictable. He can't imagine leaving a widow and children behind. But his thinking and game plan of loving and leaving changes when he meets Nathalyia. Though she tries to resist him, Rafael sweeps her into a whirlwind romance. When the unexpected happens, and Nathalyia is forced to keep it a secret, she ends things with Rafael before he can break her heart. But when Rafael is in harm’s way, will Nathalyia resolve to tell him the truth before it's too late? Or will past demons keep them apart forever?

Good story

This was a good story with nice story line. A nice break from drama of a hard day. I enjoy Francis Ray’s Work and it was the first one I’ve listened to. The narrator was a bit grating.

Glad I Read The Book First

Would you try another book from Francis Ray and/or A. Savalas?

Francis Ray yes. A. Savalas no.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrators tone or cadence was so slow and boring. She also wasn't the best at male voices. There were times I thought there were two women talking instead of a man and woman.
