Something in St. John's intense blue eyes reminded Jessa hill of her childhood friend. But Adam Alden was long dead....

The handsome stranger had vowed to help her defeat Adam's father in the mayoral race. Yet St. John's quest for revenge seemed too personal for a casual acquaintance. Could St. John and Adam be the same man...and would he disappear with Jessa's heart a seco

Recommends it for: fans of gripping storylines filled with tension and great characters
With a new name and a new face a man returns to his hometown, a place of his childhood nightmares, and to the woman who was his only solace in those dark days…

This is by far the best Silhouette Romantic Suspense book I’ve read in a while, maybe even the best SRS book I’ve read period. It was my first venture into Ms. Davis’ Redstone, Incorporated world, but it most certainly won’t be the last, because if this book is any indication, this is one heck of a series.

In the author’s note at the beginn

Really loved this book. St John showed up in town and offered to help Jessa win against Adam's father in the election. There was something about him, from the beginning, that touched her. Pretty soon she realized who he was. Meanwhile, he was feeling so many things he had never felt before, and it was making him nervous. I liked seeing the way the people at Redstone helped him, especially Josh Redstone himself. It was kind of a hard book to read. The subject matter was very intense. It also took ...more

When I first read this story in January 2010 I had no idea what to expect…After I finished it I was more than pleasantly surprised. I was literally blown away. It was (and still is) by far the best Silhouette Romantic Suspense book I’ve read. And St. John introduced me to the amazing world of Redstone, Incorporated and I’ve been hooked eve
Those who have already read TBR would probably agree that the antagonist Albert Alden had one of the creepiest lines ever written in a Harlequin romance. I'm referring to that gross remark he spat out at the end of Chapter 23. It still gives me shivers!

If, what had happened previously in St. John's life wasn't horrible enough, that biting comment surely would have sent a weaker man over the edge. I just shake my head wondering how anyone could live with his memories.

It's a credit to JD's writing

This is my first book by Justine Davis and I absolutely LOVED IT. Infact its my fav Silhouette Romance of all times. I would love to read the other Redstone ones but I dont want to be disappointed as I dont think any will match this. So I will wait for the final book 'REDSTONE EVER AFTER'. I do hope that in that, St John and Jessa are pregnant (after a reversal of course)and he feels secure enough to speak in complete sentences.

Finished in the wee hours this morning. Guess I shouldn't feel too terribly surprised to find myself reading, entirely by accident, a book eerily similar to one I had qualms about - at least in plot points.

This one, I compare to The Highwayman. It's not even in the same sub-genre but...

-little blond girl befriends older boy who is being abused.
-circumstances separate them when she's 10
-circumstances bring him back within her circle under an assumed name
-both boys deal with sexual abuse
-both are

Really slow and doesn't get interesting til the late middle. All of Adam Alden's life he was abused by his father. Going to school with multiple injuries and his father starting rumors that he was a disturbed and bad child. He only had one reason to live for and her name was Jessa Hill. Four years younger, Jessa was the only person Adam could confide in. But soon after making her swear not to tell anybody about his home life, he drownds in a flood. Never forgetting the boy that was her best frie ...more

Davis can absolutely rip you to shreds. This felt a little on the thin side though. (Mind you, medium Davis is still very good. I'm ready for her to do something other than Redstone, although obviously there are one or two major stories that need to be told yet.

The problem with having super rich, uber powerful characters in the background means that the deus ex machina is always there.

Serioiusly damaged tortured hero (possibly very triggery re child abuse.)

The good guys win, the b

Author biographies are supposed to give you all those statistics, books written, awards won, etc. and I will, I promise...but first let me tell you about this ornery little tomboy (back then, the boys had all the fun...) who was always the one to make up the stories the neighborhood kids would "play". For those who came of age in the computer game era, this is something that was done usually in th ...more

“You'll never forget," Alden said, for the first time the pure evil of his soul showing in his eyes. His voice was bloodcurdingly gentle as he added, "And neither will I. Nothing feels as good as your own flesh and blood.” 1 likes
