Deborah Sinclair is a beautiful, accomplished young heiress with a staggering dowry. But her fortune does her no good when, one horrible night, Chicago is engulfed in flames.
Tom Silver will walk through fire to avenge a terrible injustice—and he may have to. But when he makes Deborah a pawn in his revenge, the heat of the inferno fades next to the attraction he feels for his captive. And the further he takes her from everything she's known, the stronger their passion grows, until it threatens to consume them both. AMAZON 3.5 STARS ISBN; 978-1-4592-4795-6
Slow starting. At times it felt too wordy. Were different areas and surroundings detailed? Yes. There was some good research that went on. Still for me, it felt like there was so much of it that it took away from the story. I found myself starting to skip through parts of that. I hate to say that because the author had to have done a lot of work in that area. But it did start to get better for me about half way through (maybe a bit more than half). Then things did begin to speed up action wise and relationship wise.
