21 years old Chase Dupre won a feisty girl of 15yrs in a hand of poker. Obligation forced him to helped her and decided to bring her home with him. Gem McBride had no where else to go but stay with Chase. It was a warm welcome to be part of a family, a loving one, at that. She became Chase's little cousin only to realized she was falling in love with him. She was however just a "'Lil KID" to him. What makes this book different from others is Chase 5 years seperation from Gem, who awaits his return everyday, hoping they would get married someday.... but upon his return, Chase brought home a wife. Ugh, now that hurts! I didn't ruin this for others because this is actually what the back book description would tell you. I just thought I'd mention it here since there is no book synopsis here in Amazon. I tell you, this book will break your heart to pieces the first half of the book. It will also make you believe in the power of true love. At the same time, it will make you fear it. There are times I wanted Gem to forget Chase and simply move on with her life but then the more you read R.L.H's words, the more you'll see Gem's heart and feel it at the same time. I wanted her to have Chase as badly as she does. No matter how hard she tries, no matter how much she wants to remain honorable, it's her heart and she can't do anything about it. Their love story is truly heart warming!
Heart breaking love story...relief...thrilling mystery suspense...relief....frustrating consequences...relief....then another conflict would come out of no where, surprising you out of your seat! This is another emotional topsy-turvy book you surely wouldn't want to miss.
