    Kerr Wallace s brother was betrayed by a friend, and the betrayal resulted in his death Kerr has been working as a maitre d armes in New Orleans while he looks for a way to get to Mexico, where he plans to avenge his brother s death He hires on as professional escort for a young bride to be who just happens to be betrothed to the very man he s after Perfect opportunity It doesn t matter to Kerr that Sonia is desperate to avoid this trip Sensing that she plans to escape before the journey, he Kerr Wallace s brother was betrayed by a friend, and the betrayal resulted in his death Kerr has been working as a maitre d armes in New Orleans while he looks for a way to get to Mexico, where he plans to avenge his brother s death He hires on as professional escort for a young bride to be who just happens to be betrothed to the very man he s after Perfect opportunity It doesn t matter to Kerr that Sonia is desperate to avoid this trip Sensing that she plans to escape before the journey, he lays in wait and takes her prisoner, locking her up on the ship until it can depart Forget that she had nothing to do with the crime against his brother and she doesn t deserve to be handed unwillingly to a villain Kerr is absolutely determined to sacrifice this girl to get his vengeance Oh, he promises himself that she ll come to no harm but we never really figure out what he means by that, since he also contemplates the possibility that she ll have to endure a wedding night before he makes her a widow And he makes no effort to reassure her he just lets her believe he s just going to abandon her to suffer what amounts to lifelong rape by a man she despises He initially has a reason he doesn t know her well and doesn t trust her not to warn the fiance that her escort plans to kill him, but once he gets to know her, there s no excuse And yes, he battles occasionally with guilt, though it doesn t stop him from holding her against her will, or leaving her pretty much miserable and desperate Needless to say, I thought Kerr was a complete And then there s Sonia She does everything she can to persuade Kerr not to take her to Mexico, then she makes a run for it she gets captured and literally dragged aboard the ship, locked in a cabin Now, she knows Kerr will have to leave the ship to collect her aunt chaperon and baggage Does she pound and kick the door and scream her head off until someone comes to find out what s up Nope She does swear that she ll make Kerr wish he was never born but almost the very next time she sees him she feels forced to accept his escort, put her hand on his arm and make conversation, because, gee, it would be rude to just fart in his general direction and go join some people she actually likes And not many pages after that, she s engaging in tonsil hockey with this guy When she finally does try to make good her promise, view spoiler what she does is seduce him in a very showy way that would have done a lotharm to her, reputation wise, than to him in a public setting hide spoiler And yet, despite the fact that most of my notes for this book are of the WTF variety, I genuinely enjoyed this book As sometimes happens, my dislike for Kerr and my urgent need to see Sonia stand up for herself had me up late flipping pages, which means I was quite engaged emotionally with both the MC s By the end, both characters hador less redeemed themselves, and I liked the denouement AND the story is chock full of historical detail around the events leading up to and including the Mexican American War So this one gets 4 stars

    2 StarsIt was okI usually try to give an authorthan one book before I say what I m about tooand I ve given this author 2 chances.I will never even attempt another Blake book again She has great ideas hence the 2 Star rating , but in my opinion she has a hard time putting them, and following through with them on paper It started out not so bad, but was just down hill from there.
