Story Overview:
Desire won’t take no for an answer.
In the small Southern town of McKay’s Treasure, everybody knows that the handsome local police chief, Gideon Marshall, has been carrying a torch for Moira McKay. It’s also no secret that Moira has been rejecting Gideon since…forever. But after an attack from a mysterious stranger bent on taking down the McKay family, Moira becomes filled with distrust toward most men. Now she wonders whether she’s been wrong about Gideon all along—and if it’s not too late to admit him back into her life…and into her bed...
Gideon has finally convinced his wasted heart to give up on Moira, who he’s loved since he was sixteen years old. Moira’s attack changes everything, however—and he vows to protect her. But how much is he willing to risk for a woman who’s always kept him at bay…until now? And is it too late for Moira to tell him that her love for him has always been locked deep in her heart—and he holds the key?
My Review:
I love second chance at love stories and this one is so good simply because both characters are soooo not over one another, although it's been 20 years. But because of that there was so much sizzling tension on the page. Moira desperately wants Gideon, but he's finally given up on the two of them and moved on. It's torture...for both of them. Because while Gideon may not want to give Moira anymore chances, he still loves her enough to not want to see her hurting either. 

I don't want to give any spoilers, but I really loved Gideon. He's in an impossible situation and you can't blame the man for wanting out of the circle of pain that he's been in for TWENTY years. The guy deserves a break. On the other hand, Moira is a little harder to love. She's a harder person in general and doesn't let her mask slip often, but when she does, it's a beautiful thing. And although I didn't agree with her actions over the last twenty years, I could see why she thought what she did and reacted the way that she did. 

I've enjoyed this entire series. The suspense story line stretched across all three books, so that may make it a bit confusing to read this book as a stand alone if you haven't read the other two. But each book features it's own couple and HEA. The McKay story line was interesting and I liked the legends of the family patriarch and his pirating ways. I have to admit also, going into this book, I had no idea who the bad guy truly was. The hints are there fairly early in this story so the suspense builds in just how this is all going to climax. It didn't disappoint. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
