Second book in the Pearl House miniseries. It was better than the first book, 'Breathless Bride', which I felt was a 3-star book. The characters were more fleshed out, and in a 150pg book, all the content matters. Although Lucas was infuriating at times, the writing was compelling enough that I never disliked him...surprisingly. I really liked Carla. She is hard working, loyal and doesn't take Lucas's shit--what's not to like?Hope the next book is about Zane, the third brother, even though the beautiful and virginal, Lilah will be his lady love.
