The New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Duke and Heart of Steel returns to the Iron Seas with a riveting new adventure of steamy romance. A century after a devastating volcanic eruption forced Iceland's inhabitants to abandon its shores, the island has become enshrouded in legend.

Rating: 4.5 StarsRiveted is definitely Meljean Brook's best to date and I'm only upset I now have to wait to read more by her. Needless to say, it'll be tough to follow this one up, but if anyone can pull it off, it'll be her. Riveted takes a pleasant detour from the world we've come to know from Me...
4.5/5I still don't think anything can beat the first book of the series, but Riveted came pretty darn close to it. And it's the characters that did it. Annika and David are so fabulous together, you stay glued to the book until the very end cheering for this couple. Annika is an absolute powerhouse ...
