I didn't really like this book, but I finished it anyway. It didn't inspire or influence me. I liked that is continued the stories of the Harrington's. I just didn't understand Denise and what all she was about. She seemed to be easily influenced with a comment or two. I didn't feel the connection between her and Scott on a personal level; only when it related to sex. It was confusing with the back and forth of Denise and Scott.

Recommends it for: avid romance readers.
Ambassador Scout Galloway returns from two years in Lithuania with two goals. Spending time with his family and friends and finding a very special lady to settle down with. He found this not to be as easy as he thought.
