I enjoyed reading this entire series, this book had a lot of twist and turns, with the suspense it kept you on the edge. Ms. Carmen's piece in this story.....!
Can't wait to read the next book, but disapointed that it will be ended soon.
This a must read series and one for the shelf.

I need a Tesano in my life..

I've read this book many times and decided to finally write a review. Belle and Isak are one if my favorite couple stories in the Ramsey/ Tesano saga. This is the first time, I actually felt the pain of loss and the elation of redemption in one book. Isak had a connection and love for Bella from first introduction and he has never wavered. His commitment and utter devotion is both envied and heartbreaking. While we may understand Belle's reason for leaving Pike, she c

I love this series. I know that I'm reading it out of order but.

This is the story Of Isak Tesano and Sabella Ramsey. Isak fell for Bell years back as a young man. They were set to live a Love Ever after story but the stain of the Ramsey's broke them apart. Seven years he was tormented because the woman he Loveds shose to run away rather than confide in the man she claimed to love. This is a tory of love reuniting and the truth after all.

Pow!! A Lover's Shame packed a lot of punch. Here we see the long waited demise of a major character. Bella and Isak's story is now my favorite. Sorry Fernando and County you have moved to the #2 spot. A truly riveting storyline that you will not want to end. The Ramsey series was amazing, but with the addition of the Tesano family, it has made this series even more sensational. The saga continues...

Loved this story about Isak-Pike and Sabella Tesano...I tried to understand her thought process and the changes she endured over her situation...but to go as far as she did with Pike was a little dramatic to me....but Mrs. Washington made this story come together rather perfectly as she always does...definitely a must read....

Marc got what h e deserved and then some. The twist in the story only leads to more question, and wondering what next? Is Ms Imma sick or just tired? Lawdy, I have to wait till December to get the anwers.

Wow, this was the best book yet. I agree with my Friend Jackie, Quest and Mick were my fav couple but they are now in 2nd place to Pike and Belle.
