Title: Mine Until Dawn
Author: Ednah Walters
Publish Date: Published July 20th 2011 by Firetrail Publishing (first published June 30th 2011)
By age twenty-eight, art historian Jade Fitzgerald has had a marriage from hell and an equally nasty divorce, worked hard to control her weight and her arrhythmia. The last thing she needs is another man messing with her head or shooting her heartbeat off course. That is exactly what she gets when an aloof and mysterious stranger storms into her life.
He's cynical and doesn’t take crap from anyone....
Former investigative reporter Vince Knight is on a quest to recover a priceless, ancient Mayan artifact, which he believes Jade’s mother stole. He’s skilled at gathering information while remaining emotionally detached, until he meets Jade. The voluptuous woman stirs in him a hunger he hasn’t felt in a long time and a protectiveness he can’t explain.
Until, an insane man decides to add Jade to his collection of beautiful and rare things....
Neither Vince nor Jade expects passion to flare so fast or danger to dodge their footsteps. To defeat a ruthless art collector with a twisted agenda, Jade and Vince must learn to trust each other and embrace their growing feelings
All I know is that I am wishing I were born a Fitzgerald girl!!
This story Rocked from the first page to the last. You learn about Jade and the hardships she went through with her marriage, how her husband belittled her and made her feel insignificant. Jade’s inner strength to build up her self-esteem and confidence is amazing. Her devotion to her mother, never unwavering.
Mine Until Dawn is full of adventure and mystery…and let us not forget the steamy romance that you feel from the moment Jade and Vince first met. Jade keeps her guard up, but cannot deny the attraction she has for Vince. Vince cannot help his instinctive protection that he feels for Jade. A combination that is going to lead to the luscious romance that will break down all the barriers that Jade and Vince have both built around themselves.
Mine Until Dawn just isn’t a romance story, it’s got it all…mystery, adventure, murder, running from the law…it’s just down right action packed! It will grab you and you won’t be able to put it down. So read the first story, Slow Burn, and then pick up Mine Until Dawn!! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
