This is the second book in the Chicago Fire trilogy. I thought it was better than The Hostage. I'm looking forward to reading the third book. This is the story about a beautiful poor Irish girl who poses as a wealthy socialite one evening, and Chicago's most eligible wealthy bachelor falls in love with her. But wait... he is actually a con man who is posing as well. It's a good romantic readable tale! I've just discovered Susan Wiggs and plan to read all of her books.
