My Opinion  4 STARS
This is a very fast paced romance with a paranormal twist thrown in.

I've seen a lot of reviews mentioning the racial slurs and slanders that one character says, but, coming from an island where racial goings on have never really been prevalent they didn't mean much to me. In fact i had never even heard many of them. They only really happen in the first couple of chapters before they disappear.

Alyssa was a strong character and fights for what she wants and what she believes in. Even though she has been kidnapped by Teague Creek she soon learns that it is not all what it seems.

Teague is another strong character but you wonder why he puts up with so much from Taz at the start. Basically he's your wronged good guy who is just battling for freedom and his daughter. Feelings for Alyssa are an unexpected development for him, but he always puts her fist in all situations.

A lot of other strong characters were in this novel, Mitch, Alyssa's brother. Luke, Teagues brother in law and fellow fire fighter buddy. Seth a friend and fire fighter buddy.

This is a book that really gripped me. The government angle was also a believable twist.
