Yet even now that Grigg is gone Ali won’t leave his side. Nate swore to Grigg that he would never touch his sister but things are different now.

Can he find out who is after his Ali before she finds out the real reason her brother Grigg died?

This is Julie Ann Walker’s debut title and she knocked my feet out from under me. I’m now eagerly awaiting the next book in this series. They are called the Black Knights and there is a reason for this. These are men who fight for honor, love forever and protect those they love with all their heart. You can tell in Nate’s story how true that motto is. Ali and Nate are two people who are grieving in their own way yet they come together in a way that made this reader believe in love. Julie Ann Walker truly blew my imagination away and this is definitely a series to keep up with. She is a talented author. Julie Ann Walker created a series with men that will make your mouth water for their sexiness and their way of protecting their women no matter what the situation is. I loved the book and again this is an awesome start to a debut author’s first series.
