Faced with living under a cloud of suspicion and constant questioning by the FBI, I ran. I’m making a new life in New Orleans as Charlie Stone. I traded my future in New York high finance for tattoos, booze, a few friends who don’t ask questions, and one giant mutt named Huckleberry Finn. Everything is simple and uncomplicated until Simon Duchesne—former hotshot Navy fighter pilot, NOLA’s favorite son, city councilman, and rumored congressional hopeful—walks into my life.
The flashing cameras he attracts threaten to expose everything I’m hiding, but I can’t seem to stay away. Why are the most dangerous ideas always the most seductive?
In trying to get lost, I found myself. And then I found Simon. He loves me, and he doesn’t even know my real name. I’m going to break his heart, but mine will shatter right along with it. This is our story.
Will we be strong enough to face the consequences of revealing what’s beneath this mask?
I absolutely loved this book! I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat by the end of the first chapter and I did not want to put it down until the end! Charlie is such a fantastic character and she drew me into this story almost immediately. She is strong yet vulnerable and just wanted to survive her father's criminal scandal. She turns herself into the person she has always wanted to be with friends that support her. Simon is an amazing man who is immediately attracted to Charlie and literally refuses to give up in his pursuit of a relationship with her. He has an uphill battle to win Charlie over because his life is in the spotlight while she hides in the shadows. The chemistry between these two wonderful characters was off the charts hot yet sweet and tender. This was a beautifully written love story that will grab romance readers attention and I am positive they will love it as much as I do! Meghan March does an outstanding job of storytelling with a perfect blend of romance, suspense and drama, she is definitely an author to keep your eye on! ~Booklover Sue
