Excerpt from the book:

"Do you know how much badly I want to kiss you, Daphne?"

Her eyes grew wide with an intoxicating combination of fascination and uncertainty. "I..I..I..don't.."

"Very badly. So badly its unendurable." Pierce brushed Daphne's lips lightly with his. "I need to taste you. Will you let me?"

"Youre asking me?" Her breath was tantalizingly warm against his lips, but Pierce could feel her tremble as she balanced on tis new yet exhilerating threshold.

"Yes, I'm asking you. I'd never take what you didn't willingly offer."

Wonder and something painfully akin to relief flashed in her eyes, softening Pierce's hunger into something achingly tender as it melded with a wave of blind protectiveness. He wanted to enfold her in his arms, shield her from anything- or anyone- who tried to harm her.

"Kiss me, Daphne," he whispered. "let me show you how safe you can be."

Daphne and Pierce's story is different from most romances because there wasn't the usual misunderstandings and cat and mouse game. In this book the obstacle wasn't these two falling in love, but with Pierce's past and his present. Although the book was a tad bit predictable in certain areas I thought it was refreshing to read a story where the whole novel wasn't about the "chase."
