WHERE SECRETS SMOLDER . . .Calm. Cool. Collected. Gisele Whitby has perfected the art of illusion-her survival, after all, has depended upon it. Years ago, to escape an abusive husband, Gisele "disappeared." Now she must risk revealing her new identity to save another innocent girl from the same fate. But she needs a daring man for her scheme, and the rogue in question shows a remarkable talent . . . for shattering Gisele's carefully constructed facade and igniting her deepest desires.
. . . PASSION IGNITES
This isn't the first time Jamie Montcrief has awakened naked and confused from a night of drinking. It is, however, the first time a stunningly beautiful woman offers him paymentafterward. Gisele has a business proposition for him, a mission involving cunning thievery and a brazen rescue. How can he say no to a plot this dangerous . . . and a woman this delectable?
Kelly Bowen takes on a serious subject matter and handles it with heart and strength in this highly entertaining read. At times I cried and got angry but I also smiled and laughed out-loud.
Both Gisele and Jamie are wounded characters but stronger than I think even they realize. Their faults just make them all that more appealing to me and I loved watching them dealing with one another. As a fan of character's with believable flaws I enjoy seeing deep into the lead couple and Ms. Bowen has developed two extremely interesting ones. I loved Gisele's loyal friend he kept me in giggles almost whenever he appeared. This was an engrossing story with so many endearing characters. I cannot wait to read more by this author as I loved her style, the details and her characters are just amazing. If you like your stories to have depth while they remain entertaining then this is a must-read.
