Atlanta homicide detective Patrick “Tick” Kelly turned his back on the world the day his wife and children were murdered. Abandoning his city and his career, he holed up in a beach house on Mango Key, Florida, and drowned his grief in Jack Daniels. Now sober and a bestselling author, Tick would gladly stay a recluse forever if his brother Pete didn’t keep trying to drag him back to the land of the living. After years of sacrificing her personal life in favor of her DEA job, special agent Kate Rush resigned and moved back to her native Miami. But the unofficial assignment that has just come her way is too intriguing to pass up. She and a fellow ex-agent are relocated to Mango Key to keep an eye on an imposing, mysterious fortress believed to be at the center of a human trafficking ring. At first, the Kelly brothers are suspected of involvement, but Kate is sure Tick poses no danger — except for the slow-burning gaze that makes her breath catch and her heart race. Tick finds himself fascinated by Kate’s investigation — and by her inviting mix of courage and kindness. Teaming up, they uncover a web of betrayal, blackmail, and ruthless greed. And as danger mounts, Tick realizes how far he’ll go to protect the rare and surprising gift that’s come his way: a second chance at a happy ending. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Fern Michaels is suppose to be a good writer. Felt like she just needed to get a book out quick with this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Hubenthal | 2/10/2014

    " This had bad language, and I thought is was a book I could let my mom read, based on her sister's recommendation of the author! Whoops! The language doesn't get better as it continues, but gets a bit worse. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rflutist | 2/7/2014

    " I'm a Fern Michaels fan; her Las Vegas Trilogy is a favorite. Although this book was a pleasant diversion (especially during Hurricane Sandy's aftermath) Lawrence Tyler's character was a little too cliche. I won't let this book detract from reading others by the author. It's also closer to a 4 star than a 3, but still gets a 3 as it needed more depth/development. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 2/5/2014

    " I liked the characters and story idea but didn't think the story was well developed. Unfortunately, I think that is like many of her books. I have read most of her Sisterhood series which I kept reading because I just wanted to find out what would happen next but the way she writes the stories makes me crazy sometimes. "

    " Couldn't finish it before it was due back at the library "

    " i'm still listening to this book on my mp3 player and so far it's really good. "

    " This is the first book I read by Fern Michaels. It wasn't my favorite book due mainly to the cuss words. I would prefer a book without so many bad words. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue T | 12/25/2013

    " I've read and enjoyed several of Michals' "Sisterhood" series, but this one just didn't do much for me. The action was flat and the romance tepid at best. I can't say that any of the characters really made me root for them or even want to know them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 12/6/2013

    " Another great Fern Michaels read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jewett | 12/5/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. My only criticism is that she seemed in a hurry to wrap it up once you got close to the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie Bridgeman | 11/9/2013

    " Not what I thought it would be like. no suspense, you can guess what will happen next & it was very cheesy. definitely not my favorite, but not the worst either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 10/30/2013

    " What a great story of co-workers, friends, suspense, new and old relationships. Who would think a book of DEA agents,human trafficing and blackmailing could have a picture-perfect happy ending. Love, loved this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marnie Meisner | 10/24/2013

    " This was a nice enjoyable read. Two cops off the books meet two brothers (one an AWOL cop) meet and fall in love while taking down a crime of human trafficking. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie | 9/15/2012

    " I was looking forward to reading this book. The idea and plot sounded like fun. The book however really missed the mark. The story is choppy and disconnected. I barely made it to the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 6/6/2012

    " Recently all of this author's books that I've read have been disappointments. This just fell in the same category. I will leave her writing alone for a while. "

    " Cute sweet story, pretty predictible and no real twists and turns. It was an easy read but nothing exciting. I wouldnt recommend for you to run out and buy it. If you were to get it for free and having nothing better to do..... "
