As their quest to unmask the villain draws them closer together, Daisy has no choice but to reveal her own startling secret, and Ian must face the undeniable truth: Losing his heart to Daisy may be the only way to save his soul.
Review: This was my least favorite of the three I read. The main characters felt shallow, the "horrible things in their past" where meh and the plot twist in the end was obvious. These might be overlooked, but this is a romance - and I never felt it. They spent most of the book lusting over each other and then - bam! - they love each other. Um, what? Not convincing. Sigh.
