Publisher's Summary

2016 Finalist in The Daphne Du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense

Cheyenne Elias has inherited a child. A boy she doesn’t know and doesn’t particularly want; a boy whose mother was once Cheyenne’s most hated person in the world. There are a million reasons to walk away: Her anger, her past, her certainty that there is nothing benevolent in this act by a woman who almost killed her. But abandoning the boy to a system she barely survived is not an option....

Will Blackheart has lost everything. His SEAL team, his country, and - upon occasion - his mind. Worse, he’s lost something that has the capacity to kill thousands. Left for dead in the Afghan desert, Will has risen solely for the purpose of regaining that which was taken...and to punish those who dared take it.

His only lead is the son of a dead woman. Her only goal is to save a child. As they come together in a clash of anger, mistrust, and potent, unwanted desire, Will and Cheyenne must put aside their differences and navigate the endgame of a woman for whom nothing was taboo....

Outstanding Story and Narrator!

This is quite the amazing story! It took me to places I didn’t think I would go. I was surprised, shocked and even disgusted but that just made me love these characters more. The characters are darn near amazing! They aren’t perfect but realistic. I love the strong female and that hot military man. Then add in the delightful boy?? I am not sure which one is my favorite. Each one slayed me at different times in the book. Whether it’s their past or something that just happened. This author makes them human. I love it! This will be going into my favorites!

I did listen to this on audio. Shana Ryan was excellent. I loved when she did Wills voice! It’s confident and yet not loud almost like he is talking to a scared mare or something.

Great!!

I received this as a gift and this is my honest review. I wasn't sure when I received it but It sounded ok, but when I started it took me by surprise. I couldn't put it down. It pulls you in and takes you on a heart warming, fast paced, interesting story. Cheyenne, Will and Rafe were all broken and had a bad past. They were all tied together by one woman an evil vindictive woman. When she dies it brings them all together. Can they learn to trust, care for and become a family. It is so worth reading/listening to this. I recommend it to all

Endearing story

Cheyenne and Will are both determined characters. Cheyenne’s character hurts deeply from wounds inflicted upon her in her childhood. She has never been able to move past them. So, when a former friend turned enemy leaves her a most treasured possession upon her death, a son, Cheyenne has only one agenda; rescue the boy. Will is on a mission to find the hidden boy, but for very different reasons. Will also has his own set of wounds her must move past. I loved this story. Seeing Cheyenne and Will bond over protecting a child was endearing. For the most part the story flowed well. There were a few sex scenes I had to endear to move on in the story. I find these unnecessary in a story like this, but I’m sure there are plenty of people who enjoy them. A nice love story with explicit scenes is not to my liking. The narrator had a pleasant voice, did a good job and spoke clearly, but there were a few issues with sound quality.

A unique story...

With a unique storyline and plenty of action, twists and turns... I was totally hooked to this story until the end, and really didn't guess too much of the plot which I really liked!

I liked that neither main characters were perfect too...

Narration was a little slow and flat but sped up wasn't too bad

Love or Vengeance?

A former Navy SEAL bent on revenging the death of his teammates colides with a headstrong broken women determined to protect her new charge.

Sparks fly as the two battle to stay alive, retrieve the stolen weapons and fight their growing attraction to each other.

I really enjoyed this action packed romance even though the narration was a little flat.

Action packed

An action packed story from start to finish. It had a good emotional element as all three main characters had tragic backstories. The little bit of romance lightened what could have been a very dark story.
Well worth a listen.

What a story

I loved listening to this book the narrator was perfect.

An amazing book. It is part thriller, part romance of two damaged individuals, whose healing is helped along by a 10-year old boy, Oh with some surprises along the way.
