THE HEART HAS ITS SECRETS.
Zack Richards knows he’s asking for trouble. Trying to protect a member of the notorious Maddox family could get a man killed—even a battle-scarred, muscle-ripped alpha like Zack. But the woman who has captured his wildest fantasies is nothing like the rest of her power-hungry clan. She’s innocent, beautiful, and has quickly become the one shining light in his dark, desperate world. The only woman worth fighting for…and dying for…
BUT PASSION NEVER LIES.
Her name is Grace Maddox—and everybody knows that she is a marked woman. Targeted for her family’s sins and hunted like a wild animal, Grace has no choice but to accept Zack’s protection. In his arms, she finally feels safe. In his eyes, she sees an insatiable desire that mirrors her own. But the truth is dangerous—and could end up tearing them apart. Will surrendering to Zack end up being the biggest mistake of Grace’s life?
Suspense, intrigue, conflict, and turmoil. That is what is within this story and makes it a well written one. However, being the third in a series, I found myself lost with a lot of the details and characters.
Zach is a strong alpha male who has ties to a few different families. When Grace is injured because someone believes she knows a terrible secret, Zach takes it upon himself to insure her safety by insisting they become lovers and she becomes his. Grace isn’t too happy about the arrangement and fights it.
The story is well written and the secrets create great conflict. But, I couldn’t help but feel as though the story got confusing. Again, maybe if I read the previous books in the series I would not have felt as lost, but I didn’t read them. Otherwise, it was a well done story that has the potential to be great to someone who knows what went on, previously.
