“You belong to me… for life…”

After a month off, Kristin comes back to work happier then she's been in a long time. Her new status in life has her solving crimes faster and better than she ever could before.
When Alex goes missing, Kristin finds she finally has to reveal the secrets of her life to her friends. Will they be able to stand beside her after they learn all that she has hidden from them?

Julian and Gabe stand beside her faithfully as they try to locate Alex. They are surprised to find Trent in Fawn Hollow, but know that Trent may be the only one to do what Alex has asked them to do. As one more choice is taken away from Kristin, she attempts to make the best of it, but finds herself drawn to Trent in a way Julian and Alexander could never compare to.

Trent goes to work with Kristin to keep her safe but will he be able to handle all that her police world entails? Can he handle the side of her that she reveals, the one that Alex and Julian know nothing about? When Kristin and Trent uncover the connection between her job and the kidnapping, they are finally able to put the pieces together, but can they get to Alex fast enough? Will Kristin be able to handle rescuing Alex and all that she learns in the process?

Join Kristin, Julian, Trent and Alexander as they dive into a new mystery that will have you turning the pages quickly to find out who is responsible and how Kristin’s life is forever changed once again.
I really enjoyed the first book, My Blood Runs Blue, and couldn't wait to start this one. It picks up right where the first book left off and the action starts right away. Alex is kidnapped and now it is up to Kristin and Julian to find him. A lot happens in this story and I do not want to give away any spoilers. Several new characters are introduced and I liked them all, especially Trent. He is the only one, other than Gabe, who sees Kristin as the independent and strong woman she is and does not constantly try to tell her what to do or what is best for her. Kristin is still struggling with trying to get all the men in her life to understand she is not going to sit back and let her life be planned out for her. While the last book did not end the way I would have liked, I understand why Kristin chose Alex over Julian. However, I was concerned with how he would handle her dedication to her job and her fierce independence. I was happy to see the author address these concerns in this novel and I was very happy with the ending.


  1. Do you have to read these in order? It sounds like it is a wonderful series! One that combines all my favorite elements :)

  2. I think it would help to read them in order. The first book explains the love triangle between Kristin, Alex and Julian, Kristin's past life, and how the bond between works, all of which are mentioned through out this book.

  3. Felicia - I sure hope you enjoy it! It would make more sense to read Book 1 first like Nookmom said.
