    I love Elizabeth Camden s books and I think she s done an outstanding job with the Empire State trilogy.I ve been looking forward to Eloise s story since finishing A Daring Venture and evenintrigued since finding out Alex Duval would be the hero There s been much hurt and trauma in Eloise s life, how will a hot headed but honorable mayor be able to show her what it means to truly be loved and respected Especially when these two have a twelve year old story full of regrets.Eloise s fiery I love Elizabeth Camden s books and I think she s done an outstanding job with the Empire State trilogy.I ve been looking forward to Eloise s story since finishing A Daring Venture and evenintrigued since finding out Alex Duval would be the hero There s been much hurt and trauma in Eloise s life, how will a hot headed but honorable mayor be able to show her what it means to truly be loved and respected Especially when these two have a twelve year old story full of regrets.Eloise s fiery red hair is probably the only thing that Alex can relate to the girl he once knew As he sees the choices she makes that will only put a bigger chasm between them, can he convince Eloise it s never too late Her dreams can be achieved to the full and achieved with him Filled with danger and mystery, Camden once again pens a story as deep in history and passion as it is in character development I m very much looking forward to what she will bring next I received a review copy from the publisher All opinion...
