It's not that Lucia Dashing, youngest daughter of Lord Brigham, wants Alex to go away. She just wishes he weren't always so close - perhaps a few rooms, or streets, or continents between them would bank the heat of her attraction. But when her brother disappears and every clue indicates his safe recovery essential to the very sovereignty of England, she's no choice but to engage the earl in a battle risking her brother, her country, and her love.
There’s a immediate sizzle simmering between Alex and Lucia making the reader hungry for that moment of sensual explosion. Because of Lucia’s nature she drives Alex crazy with her “help” which creates situations that brings a smile to the readers face. Not only does Alex have Lucia to deal with but also her twin who’s missing and a wanted poster with his name all over it.
The way Shana Galen writes is a promise to be entertained from the first to the last page. It’s warm, witty with smoldering passion and a bit of mystery. The characters you’ll come to love or seriously dislike. Alex and Lucia take us from England to France and wherever they go nice and interesting secondary characters add a bit extra to a already heartwarming story! It’s definitely been worth my time getting acquainted with Shana Galen.
