An interesting turn!

I wasn't expecting Mark to make such a sharp turn around it I always knew he'd be good to his lady. Faith is strong, confident and able to keep Mark on his toes. It was good to see him flustered and worried about someone else for once. Next book in the series is ready to go. I love them!
