A hard man and a sweet woman = perfection. I don’t think this author can write characters I don’t fall in love with.
Ross Ward is a character we’ve briefly met here and there in other books as the owner of the underground fighting club named Rex where Laz and Pagan fought. I was curious about him but not quite the die hard fan I have been with other secondary characters that have been introduced. Well, that all changed about 5 minutes into this book. Ross was a man that you immediately knew after one act of kindness had a deeply buried heart of gold and who didn’t even know what he was missing in his life – which was a sweet, kind hearted woman by the name of Adalind. You knew that he had to have had quite the horrific past to make him into the man he was and I think my masochistic side looked forward to seeing what twisted things the author comes up for that past – and she didn’t disappoint.
I swear I could gush all day about how much I love this woman’s books. There was a new character introduced in this book that just went to the top of my “I want his book now” list (this is not something new – it happens almost every book) but I really want this guy’s book!!
