Alanna Morgan was drawn to Wolf the first time she saw him in San Francisco. When he turns up on the the ship she and her family are traveling to Boston on, she actually gets to know the man. Alanna's parents have arranged a marriage for her, but she will do anything to get out of it including stealing from her father.
Wolf doesn't have time for a woman in his life and when reaching Boston, he spends weeks trying to find information about his mother's killer without any luck. It's not until he runs into Alanna and her bodyguard, Old Chinese, that he gets any information.
Can Wolf let go of the past long enough to find the love of a lifetime?
I really loved this story. We meet Wolf in Roth's Celine, the first story in the When Hearts Dare series. He intrigued me then and I couldn't wait to read his story.
Roth did not disappoint! There are so many elements to this story that keep you reading to the very end. Wolf needs to find his mother's killer and in the process finds out his true heritage which leads to more uncertainties. His travels take us from San Francisco to Boston to Scotland.
Alanna's bodyguard, Old Chinese, basically raised her. We see why she isn't anything like her scheming parents. We also see a woman that is not like others of the time period. She has learned many things from Old Chinese including a form of martial arts.
This is definitely one of my favorite books that I have read recently and can't wait to see what Roth comes up with next!
