I borrowed this book from a friend and is the first Liz Carlyle book I've read; it paved the way for wanting to read more of her works. It had a mysterious start, the characters introduced themselves one by one until they develop. The mystery was also excellently written, with a very unlikely villain. The setting was vividly described, the love scenes were passionate and there's a lot of sexual tension going on between the Damien (hero) and Helene (heroine). I also liked the part where there's a child involved because other romances focus only on the hero and heroine's relationship with each other. The flashbacks were very effective as it explained on how the characters came to be. Helene was very resilient and talented while Damien was a man with a wounded soul. They complimented each other very well and I later found these characters reappearing in her other books.
