Cocktail parties, political fundraisers, and charity events are Maddy Powers' way of life. But the daring man who appropriated her father's yacht a couple of months ago is still out there, somewhere, and she wants to pay him back for the scorching kiss they shared.
Behind his suave smile and ladykiller eyes, Bran Palladino carries a dark secret that keeps him from pursuing Maddy… even though he can't get her out of his head. But when Maddy is kidnapped as part of a grand scheme, it's time to put up or shut up… because Bran can't live without Maddy now.
I missed book one, but I was able to catch up pretty easily. They've been corresponding by phone and email since the events of book one. Maddy is going to be nearby and invites Bran to come visit, but he has commitment issues and is afraid if he sees her in person that he won't be able to keep his hands to himself. He's still questioning his decision when he shows up and finds Maddy in danger. There is plenty of action and suspense in this one, as well as some lighter, funny moments. Each character has a unique personality. They have interesting accents and sayings and some of them speak in movie quotes. An entertaining book and I look forward to checking out the rest of the series.
