Can a Flame from the Past be Rekindled? Long ago, Sophie Lawrance chose prudence over passion, rejecting a rebellious young rogue for the sake of her family-no matter the ache it left in her heart. But after a specter from her father's past resurfaces, threatening to destroy all she holds dear, the desperate beauty knows there is only one man whose shadowy skills can save her. Or Is It Too Dangerous to Play with Fire? Cameron Daggett is a man of many secrets . . . and many sins. He's never forgotten the pain of losing Sophie. But now, with a chance to win her back, Cameron sets aside his anger and agrees to help Sophie save her father's honor. Together they embark on a perilous masquerade, leading them to a remote country estate near the sea. There, they must battle a cunning adversary-and their own burning desires. Will they be consumed by the flames? Or can they prove that true love conquers all?
First I want to be upfront and say I did not finish this book. I only read a little more than half of it. I'm usually not guilty of not finishing a book (even when I don't like it) but I just couldn't make myself read anymore of this one. Was this book terrible? No, but I found that I did not care about any of it. I did not care about the characters, the romance, or what was going on with them. I did not even care about the mystery aspect. That is probably the most surprising thing about me not finishing it. Usually even if I can't stand a book the mystery will keep me reading because I want to know the solution or answer. I liked the first two books in this series very much and I'm a bit disappointed that this one just missed the mark (for me). I'm sure plenty of other people will be satisfied with this book, unfortunately I'm not one of those people.
Please keep in mind that I did not finish this book. For all I know the second half of this book could be amazing. I just was not able to make myself read any more past the first half. If you enjoyed the first two books in the series or other books by Cara Elliott you might want to give this one a try despite this review. Hopefully you will enjoy it more than I did.
This rating is only for the first half of the book:
