Book Two: Can she free his heart from the demons that plague him?

Following the deaths of her sister and brother-in-law, Kaya Brehna is awarded custody of their three children, and to avoid financial ruin, she must move them to Palm Beach where her successful career in interior decorating can provide financial security. Her plans are, however, thwarted by New Hampshire business mogul, Bryce Fontaine, who is determined to keep his godchildren in Granite Falls at all costs--even emotional blackmail.

Ever since he lost his own family five years earlier, Bryce Fontaine has been a tormented soul. His godchildren are the closest thing to family he has, and he'll be damned before he let some corporate ladder-climbing stranger take them away from him.

When a second will surfaces that changes both their plans, to keep the children's world intact, Bryce and Kaya enter a loveless marriage of convenience that, nonetheless, sizzles with unrelenting passion. Does Kaya have the power to free Bryce's heart from the nightmares and demons of his past, or will his fears cause him to lose the family he's grown to love so dearly?

It took me a while to make myself read this book, only because I had read the first one and found the ending to be too intense for me. It turned out to be way better than I thought it would be. Kaya is only 23 when she inherits three very young children, one of them a baby. She isn't rich and begins to worry about how she will take care of all of them. Despite this, and despite not having known her half-sister that well, she immediately, and without hesitation decides to take care of her nieces and nephew. She hasn't experienced love of a man or that of family since her father left at a very young age and her mother was never there for her. But she opens herself up to that emotion. The placement of the three children is what leads to the meeting of Kaya and Bryce. Bryce is very loyal and honorable. He has known the children since they were born and is soo good with them. I could actually feel how deep his love was for the kids. Despite the slight dispute in the beginning about who will get the kids, he helps Kaya get close to them. I liked how Bryce and Kaya first meet and feel the attraction between them but have so many reasons not to think more of it. I like the author's writing style. Her choice of words and small moments are always written so well. There was such nice, descriptive writing. Ana Ross does a great job writing about love and emotion and painful moments. There were several things that made me like the book more. The love for the dead spouse didn't seem to overshadow the relationship between the characters as it did for the previous book. That was a major improvement. I also loved the mention of God. It seemed to make the story seem more real. I was glad to hear the truth behind Kaya's past relationship. I liked that there was nobody that came between Kaya and Bryce or caused a major separation or jealousy. It seems that authors always resort to those types of things to add angst in the story but it causes way more tension than needed and just becomes a cliché. This story did so well without it. I didn't think anything was missing from this story but I do hope Ms. Ross tries a slightly different scenario than men with deceased wives and children from a previous marriage. Also, I think it would be good to see female characters with different past histories than the ones in the first two books. Both females had some conflict with their father. Also, I wish authors didn't always have the male characters having so many past relationships with women. In this story it wasn't too much of a deal, but it always seems like the male characters are interchangeable in romance for this reason. This book had a couple of similarities to the first book but it was still different, didn't keep reminding me of the first one. Sometimes authors add so many different conflicts or have too many things happening in a book, it's hard to believe it could be real. This book had just the right amount. Overall, I liked this story! I wanted to keep reading it. It was much better than the first and definitely makes it seem like the next one will be good as well!

This was my favorite out of all four! I enjoyed reading all of them, but this one did it for me, emotionally. It was a beautiful story and I felt like I was right in the midst of Bryce and Kaya's story - observing everything! I cried and I laughed and I just enjoyed it so much! I have purchased every single book Ms. Ross has published and I have yet to regret my decisions! Keep up the awesome work!!!!

Hot! Juicy! Sweet! Gentle! Touching! Loving! An excellent romance novel with some substance and over 600 pages which allowed for character development and time to explore the main characters. You will melt with the love story between Bryce and Kaya. This is my first read from this author, and intend to read her others novels. Excellent job! Read this one right now, and you would not be sorry. Simply beautiful!

I wasn't disappointed in the third book that was aptly titled. The storyline just tugged at the heart, and her antics of trying to get a way was a little funny. Outwitted at every turn Nia should have given up and given in ; but that what made the characters; both stong strong willed and determine to have their w
