This is book three in the Legendary Lovers series and book 5 in the Paradise series.

Having not been married very long, Hawk endures the tragic loss of his wife and child. In his grief, he leaves the country to work for a secret government agency.
Ten years later, Hawk is back in England to marry and secure the leadership role in his unit. Unbeknownst to him, Skye has other plans. She approaches Hawk with a proposition. Skye will get his home ready for his new wife if he will help her find her uncle's long lost love. What Hawk doesn't know is Skye is determined that he marry her!
Will Skye succeed in getting Hawk as her one true love?
I have read every single one of Nicole Jordan's books and LOVED every single one of them until this one. I adored the other two books in this series and was eagerly awaiting Skye's story. I was sorely disappointed. It was almost as if someone else was writing it instead of the author I have grown to love over the years. The things dialogue between Skye and Hawk at the beginning of the story was horrible. I did think that it got better by the end of the story, but not enough to redeem it.
I did like the story lines (the main one and the secondary one), but the writing is what killed it for me.
I really hope that when Jordan continues this series, she is back to the top writer that I have come to know and love.
