All Shane Perkins ever wanted to be was a hero. But after a career-shattering decision to go down fighting, Shane comes home from the hospital to four empty walls, a pile of money, and a burning desire for someone to miss him the next time he gets hurt in the line of duty. He ends up an officer in the small town of Levee Oaks, and, addicted to the promise of family, he makes an effort to reconcile with his flighty, troubled sister. Kimmy makes her living as a dancer, and her partner steals Shane's breath at first sight.Mikhail Vasilyovitch Bayul dances like an angel, but his past is less than heavenly. Since he left Russia, he's made only two promises: to stay off the streets and stay clean, and to take his mother someplace beautiful before she dies. Making promises to anybody else is completely out of the question—but then, Mikhail has never met anybody like Shane. Earnest, brave, and self-deprecating, Shane seems to speak Mikhail's language, and no one is more surprised than Mikhail to find that keeping promises is Shane's best talent of all.

I liked this MUCH more than the first book in the series. (It helps that I liked BOTH of the MCs in this one.)
I really enjoyed this one. I loved Mikhail & Shane. Great characters who very well developed. They were both good guys - not a bad bone in their body. They both had a lot to deal with during their childhoods. I loved seeing the characters from the first book. A great relationship story with the r...
I love these books, they are full of warm and generous characters. Though each of them hurt in their own way, together they are able to make it through.Each character is unique, individual, yet there are things to love about all of them.Some of the issues raised in these books are very close to my h...
