This is the second book in the Prescott Sisters' Trilogy. I did not like this one as much as the first book but still worth the read. The first and third books are: "Just the Way You Are" and "Close to You". I would recommend reading these books in order.

This is the book of Pepper Prescott.....it goes with Just the Way You Are and Close to You....these books tell the story of the Prescott children who were sent to different foster homes after their parents disappeared. A great story.

Although a sequal it doesn't seem to need to be read in order. I didn't read the first. Also based on the title you would think this is just another romance novel. However, despite it having a romance take place there is a lot of suspense and drama, reminds me of a Nora Roberts

Readers who were wooed by the first installment in Dodd's contemporary Prescott sisters trilogy, Just the Way You Are, may be disappointed by this unlikely, terrorism-based tale. Orphaned, separated from her siblings and shuttled through foster care, landscaper Pepper Prescott relies on her inborn wiliness and the militaristic self-help strategies of author Jennifer Napier, an active U.S. General, to overcome life's challenges. But when she witnesses her idol shooting an aide who threatens to expose her sale of government secrets, Pepper flees to the Idaho ranch that once provided her only stable home. Her ex-boyfriend Dan Graham, now an undercover Special Forces agent, is keeping up the ranch in an attempt to draw out an international terrorist intent on killing him. Despite mutual deceptions, the two rediscover both trust and passion before the General, Dan's terrorist prey, two of Pepper's long-lost siblings and a passel of U.S. forces converge at the ranch for the melodramatic denouement. An excess of unrealistic plot points and purple prose ("she screamed out loud, an incoherent cry of inexpressible fulfillment") mar the story, and the character of garden-loving, gun-toting Pepper never quite gels. Still, the starkly beautiful setting and the raw sexual bond Dan and Pepper share will please readers with a taste for the dramatic.
