Overview

The legacy that haunts her . . .

The mystery she must solve . . .


A man who threatens to reveal her secrets . . .

and break her heart.

Burned by a failed marriage, former FBI agent Marc Rossi wants back in the investigation game with no emotional strings attached. Taking an assignment for his enterprising Angelino cousins, he heads to Northern Ireland to pry a key piece of evidence from a missing socialite-any way he can. But when the ice queen turns out to be warm, beautiful, and on a secret mission of her own, the job becomes a passionate reminder of what happens when duty and desire mix. The daughter of an infamous fugitive, Devyn Sterling has survived betrayal only to find that her mother has mysteriously disappeared. When her search uncovers secrets, lies, and threats, Devyn and Marc must trust each other when every instinct says they can't . . . and a terrorist wants to make sure they won't live to try.

Devyn Hewitt Sterling is convinced she will never amount to anything good in this lifetime. Her late husband was a criminal just like the parents who conceived her and gave her up for adoption. She keeps chasing dreams that never materialize and yes she grew up with wonderful adopted parents but could that stop the evil that her biological parents gave her from their bloodline? Determined to find out where she came from Devyn takes off to find her mother and winds up in Ireland running from the bad guys and straight into the arms of a man she hopes is one of the good guys, Marc Rossi. Marc is part of family run business that does a little of this and allot of undercover that. He was an FBI agent but these days he chases some consulting work with his cousins for the Guardian Angelinos and is happy to take the assignment that has Devyn landing right where he wants her, close enough to kiss. He is supposed to be there to bring her home per their present client, the FBI. The order was to find the woman and bring her home, simple and without complications. But the woman is one determined, spontaneous and beautiful temptation who is able to get him to spill all his secrets and then Marc winds up helping her figure out where her biological mother is and keep all of them alive. The longer Marc and Devyn keep looking the more danger they are in and the harder it is to get out not only with all things in tact but alive. Cryptic notes, CIA spooks, shots in the dark and thugs in bell towers are becoming a common every day experience and they absolutely should not be in anyone's world. But the more the pieces don't fit, descriptions continue to not make sense and no one is telling the truth, not even Devyn. The truth is the one factor Marc needs in any relationship and if Devyn isn't going to provide it do they have a future with or without the mysteries solved? Marc may have a past as well that he needs to reveal but family issues is not one thing he has to worry about and convincing Devyn that her past is not her present is a difficult sell. Marc and Devyn are fascinating characters that bring so much to this book. Every page is a mystery to unravel and the more you know about each of them the more you are convinced they are the perfect match. This book will have you reading until you finish it and wishing the next book in the series was coming out tomorrow!

I liked the story and the characters, though got a little tired of the 'poor me' attitude of Devon. Otherwise - it was paced well and mystery kept you intrigued.

My Review: Overall I really enjoyed this book. Roxanne St. Claire has such an amazing writing voice. I love the way that she puts a book together and the huge cast of characters that she builds up in this world. Really well done and well-written. From page one, she had my full attention and it never wandered far until the book was finished. I love getting immersed in a world to this extreme! Set in Ireland, this book has a very different feel than the first book had, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It made the two stories very distinctive from each other which sometimes becomes an issue in a series like this, so I liked that about it. Another thing that set this book far apart from the first was Marc. He's a former FBI agent. He knows what he's doing and is fully trained to do the job. It gave a different feel than from dealing with Zach and Vivi who are still working to learn the security field. That brings us to the things that are the same in this second book from the first...the family! I love this family...every single one of them. We didn't get to see as much of them in this installment, but when they did show up, the scenes were complete perfection. The family dynamic with the Angelino's and Rossi's....ah, I just love it! The other thing that rocked in this book once again...the suspense!! OMG, I did NOT see all the twists and turns coming. I just kept gasping out loud. That is so awesome in a suspense book and definitely the sign of a good one! Finally, we need to chat about the romance between Devyn & Marc. I really adored Marc's character. Honestly, what's not to love? He's charming. He's good-looking. He packs a gun and is willing to place his body in front of a bullet for the heroine. He has amazing integrity. And yes, his heart is more than a little wounded because once upon a time, he fell in love with the wrong woman...you have to love that little bit of vulnerability. I had a harder time with Devyn and that is probably because through so much of the story, she honestly was having a hard time accepting herself and where she belongs. So much of her self-worth was tied up in making a connection with her mother. On the one hand, I could understand that a bit, but I think that she became too obsessed in defining herself by her DNA. I just had a hard time relating to that part of her character, although my heart ached for her throughout so much of this book. Her internal pain is palpable and heartbreaking. The sexual tension between these two was so immense. They both have reasons for avoiding an entanglement and I was beginning to wonder if it was ever really going to happen, but this is a romance novel, so... It's all good...VERY GOOD!! ;o) And now I am going to stop writing because I cannot wait to dig into book #3...finally Vivi's book and it looks like she is paired up with Agent Lang. Oh my! There are going to be huge fireworks in that book. I can't wait!!
