Rafe wasn’t born a Colton. He was adopted by them after father had passed away. Rafe and Kerry had been childhood friends all the way til their teens. That is when he suddenly left for no apparent reason. He had a reason, a good one that does get explained.
Now as adults Rafe is the CFO of Colton Industries and Kerry is a detective. They haven’t seen one another since they were thirteen years old. However, those first love feelings have never went away either. Kerry is convinced that her brother didn’t commit suicide but rather was murdered and with Rafe’s help she sets out to prove it.
I will say there were times I honestly didn’t like either character because they seemed so stubborn. I could understand Rafe’s reason for leaving Kerry as a teen and maybe even up until adulthood but I felt that maybe he should have confronted her or something to deal with it as an adult.
Kerry is just as bad, she loves him and wants a relationship with him but it feels at times as though she is trying to prove something. Whether that is to Rafe or herself I’m not sure of. They come together beautifully and the suspense is great. One thing is certain this book made me dislike Payne Colton even more.
He is of course, still in a comma. In this book I was a little thrilled he was because I wanted to punch him for some of his stuff years ago. We still haven’t discovered who shot him but that is the secondary mystery in this book. The main one is what happened to Kerry’s brother. All in all I liked this story line and was more than thrilled when Rafe and Kerry pulled their heads out of their butts.
About Tara Taylor Quinn
Tara Taylor Quinn began her love affair with Harlequin when she was fourteen years old and picked up a free promotional copy of a Harlequin Romance in a hometown grocery store. The relationship was solidified the year she was suspended from her high school typing class for hiding a Harlequin Romance behind the keys of her electric typewriter. Unaware that her instructor loomed close by, Ms. Quinn read blissfully on with one finger resting on the automatic repeating period key. She finished the book in the principal’s office. Forced to leave her romances in her locker after that, Ms. Quinn’s typing skills improved – a fact for which she is eternally grateful.
With over 80 original novels, published in more than twenty languages, Tara Taylor Quinn is a USA Today bestselling author with more than seven million copies sold. She is a winner of the 2008 National Reader’s Choice Award, four time finalist for the RWA Rita Award, a finalist for the Reviewer’s Choice Award, the Bookseller’s Best Award, the Holt Medallion and appears regularly on the Waldenbooks bestsellers list. Ms. Quinn writes for Harlequin and MIRA Books. Reviewer, Cindy Penn, wordweaving.com says, “Amazing character development is the hallmark of author Tara Taylor Quinn’s work. Indeed, Taylor’s profound observations of human nature and intimate understanding of values and priorities lends extraordinary psychological depth to all her work.”
Tara Taylor Quinn was born and raised in Ohio. Though she wrote her first story at the age of seven, her professional writing career began ten years later when she was hired as a stringer with the Dayton Daily News in Dayton, Ohio. She attended Wright State University and graduated from Harding College in Arkansas with a degree in English and Journalism. She published several magazine articles before turning to writing as a full-time occupation.
Ms. Quinn is a Past President of the Romance Writers of America and served for eight years on the Board of Directors of that association. She has a wide range of experience as a public speaker and workshop presenter for writers groups around the country.
