    The thing I loved most about this book was the absorbing plot. From the very beginning the reader is drawn into Camille's privileged world. But she is unhappy with her life where she is forced to hide away from the world unless she is accompanied by body guards. Camille is feisty and head-strong, determined not to be tamed and when she escapes for a holiday to Turkey she experiences the first stirrings of love for a stranger who rescues her from a mugger. When she returns home, Camille is unable to forget this mystery man and when things become too much for her, she returns to the place where she experienced such happiness to see if the man is still there. Unfortunately their reunion is rocked when Camille is kidnapped and once more the stranger comes to her rescue. Discovering his true identity when she safely returns home, Camille feels betrayed by her father and those she trusted most. Once more her feelings are confused as she battles between her love for a stranger and trying to forget him and find some normality in her life. Without wanting to spoil the ending for anyone, I recommend this book for anyone who has an ounce of romance in them. There is also plenty of menace and excitement in this tale of love conquering all.

    This was one of those books where I had no idea where it was going to lead me. However, after a couple of well-placed hooks, I was totally absorbed and read through the pages really quickly. This is a tale about forgiveness and belief and as the plot unfolds it really is an endearing story which has the reader firmly placed behind the main character, Dani, pushing her gently forwards. Badly injured in a car accident and traumatised by events from her past, Dani experiences some confusing but enlightening events whilst in a coma. When she wakes, the realisation of what she has to do to make amends and find an inner peace, help her to reach a conclusion which I don't wish to spoil for any readers. This really is a lovely tale with a really great 'feel good' factor.
