Passion that takes no prisoners, and love that tests the limits of ecstasy . . .
"From the very first page I was lost to the suspense, romance, thrills and chills of this intriguing story. In fact, I was so engrossed in the dramatic plot that I stayed up all night to finish the story. There was no way that I would be able to sleep without knowing how everything played out." - Sizzling Hot Books.com
"If you love a great mystery with a giant dose of steam and a beautiful love story, you will swoon over this novel!" - The Reading Cafe
Hayden Thorne’s heart was still pounding a little hard, her breath a little shallow, and her palms still hurt from scratches she’d received when she’d climbed over the rail to avoid death. Had she really jumped into an arena to challenge an angry bull? A little half-hysterical giggle escaped her as she collapsed onto the small twin bed in her cheap motel room in Walnut Springs, tugging her red dress down her thighs. Her hands still shook from the adrenaline.
This book is the sequel to The Gilded Cuff and the conspiracy continues. Who is behind the plot to kill the Lockwood twins? Who is responsible for their kidnapping and subsequent separation? While Emery Lockwood (hero of The Gilded Cuff) was raised in the loving arms of their parents and in the lap of luxury, Fenn was raised by his kidnapper and grown to be a hardcore cowboy. After the discovery of Fenn's existence at the end of book 1, Hayden Thorne, a family friend, has been on the hunt for Fenn. Hayden and Fenn meet under unique circumstances. Nothing like running in front of a raging bull in a red dress. Fenn's life goes to hell when Hayden reveals the truth about his true parentage. The subplots of the previous book's characters helped add some meat to the story and wove itself throughout the story. The instant connection between Hayden and Fenn is instant and powerful. For those of you who have not read this trilogy, there is a BDSM component. Hayden is quite aware of her submissive nature, but unfortunately she's developed a rep as a sub that likes to be a bit dominant. In Fenn, she feels like he could be the one for her. A game of sexual cat and mouse begins between them and I do like the progression of their relationship. Overall, it was a pretty good read. New characters are introduced and I'm looking forward to reading the third book.
