Stephanie Gage's father has been kidnapped—by a dangerous man who wants to make a trade. Her beloved dad for a multimillion-dollar family heirloom that's gone missing. Either Stephanie finds the valuable violin or her father dies. But to track it down, she must rely on Tate Fuego—the man who broke her heart years ago. Stephanie knows that Tate's reasons for helping have nothing to do with her.And that the handsome demolitions expert knows more about destroying things than saving lives. But trusting Tate is all that stands between Stephanie and a madman's ultimate revenge.
I bought this book for my Kindle not long after I read Lost Legacy. I find Dana’s books well written and fast-paced. As soon as you start reading the story just grabs you and you don’t want to put the book down.
Stephanie Gage is forced to seek out an old violin when her former employer, who has developed an obsession with her, kidnaps her father and puts her brother into the hospital. He has been manipulating her so that she might someday come to love him.
Her former flame, Tate Fuego is also after this same man. His sister is in love with him and trying to prove herself by finding this violin before Stephanie does. Tate has a problem with prescription drugs that he is overcoming daily but Stephanie doesn’t want to give him the time of day for fear she might get her heart hurt in the process. Stephanie is forced to let Tate help her in the search for the violin. Of course, she is not happy she has to deal with Tate along with all the stress of her father’s kidnapping.
I think it was the complexity of the plot, the momentum of the storytelling and the fantastic writing that really made this book shine. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
I paid for this book with my own money.
