"One night eight years ago and you ran, angel. One night now and you're gone again. I won't let you run this time without giving chase."
Eight years ago Evangeline Rowe met her ice-blue eyed, perfect cowboy, but she was running from a past he would have kept her trapped within. One night of unbelievable passion, a lost and consequently broken heart, and only memories that haunted her dreams and made all subsequent liaisons fall short. By the time she is called back to Auckland to tend her dying father, she has only just managed to vanquish the ghosts of her past enough to settle down. Her time as a cowgirl-in-the-rodeo-ring is coming to an end - and then she sees him. Standing across the crowd at Sweet Seduction, listening to her sing. With his arm wrapped around his fiancée. Try as she might to refuse him access to her heart again, Nick Anscombe has never forgotten that night eight years ago either. And sets out to prove to Eva, his angel, that their hearts are indeed meant to be one.
Old grudges, disgruntled relatives, and a past that haunts as much as hurts, chases Eva down. Gunshots, attempted kidnappings, hostage situations, hot investigators and just as hot police detectives, everything comes to a head when Eva faces her past and accepts who she is inside. And who she is began that day eight years ago - but was it truly the same for her ice-blue eyed cowboy? And can she still be the cowgirl-in-the-rodeo-ring she desires and let him back inside her battered heart?
Love at first sight has never been so dangerous and so very delicious at the same time.
Review Copy This book starts out with Eva having to move back to NZ to help her dying father. They've never had a good relationship before, and Eva thinks its just as bad now. So in order to help her get through this she joins up with her old band, and plays at Sweet Seduction. Little did she know that being there she would meet Nick, the guy she gave her heart to one night eight years ago before she ran away.
Now Nick sees her and says he's never letting her get away again. But Eva isn't so sure that is a good idea. Now people seem to be getting hurt because her cousins are after her, and her aunt is helping matters.
With all of this Eva also has some people from Tennessee come visit that just make things even more complicated.
Overall I really enjoyed this book. It has romance, drama, and action. What's not to love? The only thing that bugged me at times was Eva. However, I did believe she caught on to the stuff Nick does very quickly so that made her raise a notch higher in my book. I can not wait to read the next one now.
