There is just one little snag though, someone in Delaney's past is watching and he might just have something else planned for the lovers before they can have their happily ever after.
This book is much better than the first in the series. I liked both Delaney and Mike, even though I felt she could have been a little stronger. While the storyline is great and I like the two characters, the ending of the book gets a little muddled so I feel obligated to know off a point for that. Still I feel this series has merit and can't wait to read the next in the series.
Delaney Richards had given up on love. The long hours at the office were finally paying off—she could all but feel the vice-presidency in her bones. She was counting on this week in San Francisco to seal the deal. But first she had to get through the weekend and the wedding—the first since her own wedding. Almost wedding, that is. You can’t have a wedding without a groom.
Captain Mike Savoy hadn’t counted on seeing Delaney Richards at his best friend’s wedding, let alone find himself falling in love with her. Now he has to convince her that the feeling is mutual—and permanent. But it’s more complicated than that. A past Delaney didn’t know she had is catching up with her. And the only way Mike can ensure their future together is to send her away.
And when blackmail turns to ransom, Mike is the only one who can save her. If only he can get to her in time, he can explain everything…
