Mine Until Dawn (The Fitzgerald family, book #2) by Ednah Walters

Saturday, July 16, 2011



She's armed with a new attitude and a kick-ass wardrobe....

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.

Good Reads Summary

The second novel in the Fitzgerald Family series, this one is just as great as the first.  The reader will love how close and protective the Fitzgerald family members are of their kin.  This novel isn't some cheesy love story, the main topic isn't necessarily romance.  This book contains mystery, action, drama, romance, and even a little horror.  Readers who prefer different types of genres will still enjoy this novel.  The reader will pick up new vocabulary and facts concerning kung fu and China, specifically concerning artifacts. 
Jade is a strong, female character; female readers should enjoy this facet of Jade's character, there are not many strong-willed females in stories where romance is intertwined with the plot.  Jade is fun to read about, the reader will feel as if he/she knows Jade very well by the end of the novel.  Vince is a bit of an enigma; he makes for a great "hero".  He is handsome, aloof, and persistent.  Jade and Vince really pull the story together.  The secondary characters all have various personalities, from the humorous to the scary to the cheerful; the reader will have fun reading about them as well. 
The novel ends well, there are no cliff-hangers or disappointing last minute adjustments.  The reader will look forward to the next book in this series.
