Will Devon and Ella be able to sort out their feelings for one another before it's too late?
I enjoyed this book and was surprised by the ending for sure.
I liked Ella and felt bad that she felt like she had to run in the first place and never realized how much Devon cared for her. Ella did work hard to establish her own business but knew she was in over her head when her business began to be sabotaged. Ella's first priority was Maddie and she knew that she couldn't protect her own her own and therefore relied on Devon.
I thought Devon was awesome and that he really loved Ella and wanted to prove it to her. He did everything he can to keep her and Maddie safe. I loved how far he was willing to go.
This was a great historical romance.
