Walker (Darker than Desire), also known as urban fantasy author J.C. Daniels, ably tackles the heavy subjects of domestic violence and stalking in this fast-paced contemporary romance. After fleeing an abusive relationship, Neve McKay heads home to the small town of Treasure McKay, Miss., and the love of her older siblings. But there's been a delicious new addition to the tiny town: Scotsman Ian Campbell, who studied with Neve's brother, Brannon, overseas. The chemistry between Ian and Neve is immediate, although they hesitate for different reasons Ian about dating his best friend's sister, Neve because she's now gun-shy around men. Neve doesn't realize that her abuser, William, has a direct connection to those she loves, or that he's the one who distanced her from them in the first place. If she doesn't keep her eyes open, she may lose her newly rekindled relationships or her life. Walker sets the stage for additional books by introducing an engaging group of secondary characters, and readers will look forward to continuing the journey with them.

Contains one sexy kilt-wearing Scotsman!!!
Don't forget your fan! This book contains one sexy, gorgeous, very large, kilt-wearing Scotsman and his name is Ian Campbell. It also contains one very scared and emotionally injured woman by the name of Neve McKay. "What a tangled web we weave" should be the mantra for this story. Just when you think you've got it all figured out...BAM, PLOT TWIST and you have to rethink everything. The one beautiful constant was the blossoming romance between Ian and Neve. It didn't easily fall into place. Ian had to fight hard to get past her issues. There was also another romance blooming as well as a possible second chance romance. I loved watching Neve grow stronger. The poor thing had been through so much. The saddest part for me was the calls and the letters. How had William accomplished that? The family drama and all the time lost is tragic!
This is an amazing romance with great characters and the perfect amount of mystery. Character growth was on spot! I can't wait to read book two.
