Not one of my favorite Linda Howard books, but still great for the heroine alone. I loved Faith. I thought she was heartbreaking and tough as a child and pretty damn ballsy as an adult. The chemistry between her and Gray was intense, as only Linda writes it. That being said, Gray was just sort of...gray for me. Yes, there was that whole alpha male, fierce town badass thing about him. The things he said the swagger to his walk, but the earring and ponytail were a bit outdated and the town for which he was king wasn't as fleshed out as I would have liked. His mom and sister, the genteel beings that they were, were one dimensional. I cared for neither. The murder was a little too obvious, which left the suspense lacking.

Not as great as Shades of Twilight in my opinion, but enough of what makes Howard great to give it a read.
