Adriana Barrows returns to Maine following a disastrous intelligence-gathering mission in Pakistan. Unlike the extremely competent and capable woman the listener met in the first book, in Book II the listener meets the entirely ´´human´´ Adriana, one who will need to deal with her own weaknesses and frailties. Once again, the narrator tells her story, believing that from his past experiences, he perhaps alone can help her to heal. But he once more gets to look backward into the depths of his own dark memories of wars fought and lost years before. Eventually, with time and patience he is able to pull Adriana away from the dark abyss of her depressions, but it is mostly a new challenge that can be met by them both that begins to yield a true recovery. But once again there will be a new challenge that will require Adriana´s skills and training to be utilized and as in the first book, she must leave her narrator/lover behind. The difference this time is there is no doubt that she will return to him and their life together. But once she is gone, it also seems to him that the old lesson he thought might be behind them, will be taught once again: that when things seem too good to be true, they usually are. 1.

As Walker Gibson looks at her, then at the damage to his precious truck (that she may or may not have accidentally inflicted), she knows she´s in trouble.

Protecting her should be easy for a man like me. When assigned as a bodyguard for Adriana Bertoli, I knew I was in for a world of trouble. With her fiery-red hair, sparkling green eyes, milky white skin, and lush, curvaceous body, she´s a damn knockout. But she also happens to be the niece of one of the most powerful mob bosses in the Seattle-Tacoma area, Don Carlo - my boss. And he´s made it clear that none of his men are to lay a finger on Adriana. The man to have that honor would have to be perfect - a warrior and a saint. Sadly, I was no saint. It should be an easy order to follow. After all, I owed everything to the man, and I´d be nothing without him. But every moment in Adriana´s presence is pure temptation. The longer I´m with her, the more I want her, and I fear it won´t be long before I betray the man who´s like the father I never had. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emma Lysy.
