Mine Until Dawn

Author: Ednah Walters (writing as E.B Walters)
Publisher: Firetrail Publishing (July 2011)

She's armed with a new attitude and a kick-ass wardrobe....

By age twenty-eight, art historian Jade Fitzgerald has had a marriage from hell and an equally nasty divorce, worked hard to control her weight and her arrhythmia. The last thing she needs is another man messing with her head or shooting her heartbeat off course. That is exactly what she gets when an aloof and mysterious stranger storms into her life.

He's cynical and doesn’t take crap from anyone....

Former investigative reporter Vince Knight is on a quest to recover a priceless, ancient Mayan artifact, which he believes Jade’s mother stole. He’s skilled at gathering information while remaining emotionally detached, until he meets Jade. The voluptuous woman stirs in him a hunger he hasn’t felt in a long time and a protectiveness he can’t explain.

Until, an insane man decides to add Jade to his collection of beautiful and rare things....

Neither Vince nor Jade expects passion to flare so fast or danger to dodge their footsteps. To defeat a ruthless art collector with a twisted agenda, Jade and Vince must learn to trust each other and embrace their growing feelings.

Mine Until Dawn is the second book in "The Fitzgerald Family" series by Ednah Walters. I reviewed the first book, Slow Burn, back in May here. I was really looking forward to Mine Until Dawn and I was not disappointed. Ms. Walters sends the reader on another exciting adventure of intrigue and, of course, romance. Boy, does the romance sizzle! This time around, Jade Fitzgerald is confronted by Vince about her mother's possible involvement in the theft of a family heirloom. The story takes off from there and doesn't slow down. Once again, I was kept guessing until the end.

I love the characters in this book. Vince is a great hero and he compliments Jade very well. I liked their relationship. Both have major trust issues that I was happy to see them take their time to work through. It made me believe their feelings for each other in the end. We also get to know more of the Fitzgerald clan in this book. I love their fierce loyalty to each other.

I don't want to give too much of the plot away, so you will have to read it for yourself to find out if Jade's mother stole the statue or not. This is a series you don't want to miss! The next one comes out soon and I can't wait!
