By Harriet Schultz
Young, good-looking, successful and wealthy. Will and Alexandra Cameron had it all until the night he went out to buy ice cream after an evening of passionate sex and never returned. When his body is discovered in a nearby Boston alley, the only clue to his murder is a Scottish sgian dubh dagger left beside it. Will’s grieving widow finds refuge in the Miami villa of his best friend Diego Navarro, who has the means, power and temperament to solve the puzzle and to avenge his friend’s murder. The sinfully handsome and charming womanizer’s feelings for Alexandra run deep, and he becomes equally determined to win the devastated widow’s heart. The attraction between them grows as they follow leads from Miami to Buenos Aires and Scotland, unraveling the Cameron family’s centuries-old secrets.
This is book one of a series of three, now Lulu read book 3 first being Legacy of Love which actually is about two characters we meet in book 2, so I already knew some of the outcomes from this book. Was I disappointed – not on your life! The chemistry and off the page suspense and drama for Alex and Diego kept me turning those pages and the heartache and new beginning romance for Alex was truly beautiful. Now there is not a lot of hot sexual encounters – did I feel robbed – again no I didn’t as Harriet Schultz put in scenes that were complimentary to the suspense and storyline – hell Alex has lost the love of her life of course she was not going to have hot up against the wall sex and jump into bed with another man straight away.
Diego is one passionate man – he is simply irresistible – the way these characters converse and push each others buttons had me laughing and swooning on the same page.
This story flowed well, I could easily understand the history and background which led to Will’s death and it was believable Alex’s period of mourning and how she was gently pushed towards starting anew by her friends and extended family. Her grief at Will’s funeral and need to escape and mourn in private was really well written and I felt her tears and passionate loss.
