I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

          For twenty-three years, Cross Carlson was a playboy. You know the type. Tall, dark, and wealthy. Blue-eyed. Charming. He seemed to have it all so easy. But Cross was harboring a terrible secret - one that helped ruin the life of an innocent girl and almost ended his own.
          Finally out of the hospital, Cross is flailing, scarred in both body and mind and stifled by the weight of the secret he still keeps. The only way to absolution lies in a Mexican convent, and going there could cost him everything.
          If there's anyone who knows what it's like to screw up big time, it's Meredith Kinsey. Just a few years ago, Merri was an ordinary girl with a job at her college newspaper and white picket fence kind of dreams. Now she's holed up in a Mexican convent, hiding from a drug lord who thinks he owns her.
          What happens when the only way out of hell is with the son of the man who put you there? They say love conquers all, but does it really?

          The second in a series, it can read as a standalone, though reading book one is always helpful. Wow what can I say? While I’m not usually a fan of suspense this book was really good. It surprised me because I enjoyed it. Merri sold as a victim of the slave trade, and Cross the broken flawed young man who feels its job to help save her. They fit together as a couple even with all the drama going around them. The book really sucks you in and haves you rooting for the main characters.
          Having read the first book I thought I knew for sure who the main female in this was going to be but much to my surprise it wasn’t at all. Then while reading this book I realized it couldn’t have been any other girl but Merri. This book was really good. Well written, it was fast paced, had an engaging plot, the storyline really flowed and the characters were almost real and were relatable even if you’ve never went through any of the things they have. It’s always nice to see character grow as people physically and emotionally.
          Ms. James is a very gifted author who sure knows how to spin a story together. This is one book you’ll enjoy. I won’t give away anything you’ll just have to see judge for yourself.
