Overview

Could a revolutionary used to running wild win the heart of a world-weary journalist?

Liam Bartlett had nearly lost his life in San Salustiano, and for five years the correspondent had done his best to silence his ghosts. But when Marisala Bolivar arrived in Boston, all his memories returned—along with a white-hot hunger for the young rebel who'd hidden him and kept him alive! Marisala ached for Liam's touch, so long forbidden but now hers to fight for with a woman's fierce need. Could a love once forged in fire at last burn true?

In this unforgettably sensual love story, Suzanne Brockmann creates a portrait of two daredevil survivors, tested by sorrow and bound by destiny to heal each other's wounds. A flame who beckoned him out of the darkness, she understood his pain as no one ever would, but could he soothe her hidden scars by offering her his soul?

Read an Excerpt

"I'm sorry I called you a sewer rat who lives in a nest of horse manure."

He pulled his hand away from the silken softness of her face, hiding his sudden rush of emotion and need with a snort of laughter as he stood up. "No, you're not."

But she stood up, too, catching his hand in hers, bringing it up to the softness of her lips. She kissed his knuckles, and the featherlight sensation was totally unnerving.

"Yes, I am," she whispered. "I am sorry."

When she released his hand, he tried to convince himself that his sudden disappointment was in fact relief. But when she stepped even closer and reached up to touch the side of his face, he knew the truth. There was nothing in the world he wanted more than to kiss Marisala.

"We are friends," she said again. "When I'm with you, I can say what I want. And you--you can do the same, you know."

"I will," he whispered. He wanted to kiss her, but he'd never tell her that. He couldn't.

She pulled him close, not for a kiss, but to embrace him in a friendly hug.

He buried his face in the sweet-smelling mass of her beautiful hair. He could feel the softness of her breasts against his chest, feel her fingers lacing through his own hair, feel her thighs pressed against his as she stood on tiptoe.

And he was lost.

All he knew was that suddenly he was kissing her.

This was an ok sequel to an earlier book about Liam's brother, Cal. Cal rescued Liam from his imprisoment with the help of his now wife. The first book was much better. This one had no intrigue like the first one.

This book follows up on the story of characters that were first introduced in "Forbidden." I expected more from this story, but I still enjoyed it and was excited to find out what happened to their characters.

In this Suzanne brings us one of her re-issued novels. Liam Bartlett spent time in a prison in San Salsutiano and the ghosts from his time there still haunt him, the one memory he can't forget is of a certain 15 year old freedom fighter named Marisala Bolivar. Well Marisala is all grown up now and has come to Boston to go to college and at the request of her uncle is relying on Liam to help her get settled the trouble is that each of them has held a flame for each other for years and now that flame is becoming a forest fire.
A wonderful story told only the way Suz can.
