I LOVED this story!! I couldn't put it down and was up half the night reading it!
If you've read the other books in the series, you've met Edwin and Clarissa before. Edwin had always been the quiet one that only spoke up when necessary and ALWAYS told you like it was! You knew that he had to have hidden depths to him that only the right woman would bring out in him!! Oh boy, what a hero he turned out to be. I wanted him to magically appear so that he could be my IRL hero!!
I really liked Clarissa too. She was always needling Edwin to get a rise of of him, unfortunately Edwin didn't often see that she was teasing him. I just really loved the interaction between Clarissa and Edwin.
The next book in the series, The Danger of Desire, is Warren's book and comes out in November. I can't wait to read it!!!
