Desire won’t take no for an answer.
In the small Southern town of McKay’s Treasure, everybody knows that the handsome local police chief, Gideon Marshall, has been carrying a torch for Moira McKay. It’s also no secret that Moira has been rejecting Gideon since…forever. But after an attack from a mysterious stranger bent on taking down the McKay family, Moira becomes filled with distrust toward most men. Now she wonders whether she’s been wrong about Gideon all along—and if it’s not too late to admit him back into her life…and into her bed...
Gideon has finally convinced his wasted heart to give up on Moira, who he’s loved since he was sixteen years old. Moira’s attack changes everything, however—and he vows to protect her. But how much is he willing to risk for a woman who’s always kept him at bay…until now? And is it too late for Moira to tell him that her love for him has always been locked deep in her heart—and he holds the key?
“Shiloh Walker’s writing just gets better and better...[and] the sex is sizzling.” —RT Book Reviews
Gideon has loved Moira since they were teenagers. The feeling was mutual until the day that Moira’s world crashed and burned around her. She was out with Gideon after a fight with her mom when there was an accident. Her parents died and Moira has never been able to forgive herself—or Gideon.
Twenty years later someone has attacked Moira looking for McKay’s Treasure, a legend that has plagued the town of McKay’s treasure for years. Moira’s ancestor was a pirate that always said his greatest treasurer was in McKay’s Treasure. It’s never escalated to violence. Now Gideon can’t follow through with his plans to leave town and finally leave Moira behind. After trying (and failing) to start a new relationship, Gideon knows that the only way to cut the ties that bind is to leave McKay’s Treasure for good. With Moira in danger, Gideon won’t do that.
When Moira learns that Gideon plans to leave town, she panics. She’s long since forgiven him for something that wasn’t even his fault. She believes that there is too much between them to ever allow them to be together, but when she hears that he’s leaving, those things to seem as insurmountable as they always have. Moira convinces Gideon to give her another chance, but she feels that he already has one foot out the door.
Gideon can’t fully trust Moira, but he will take what he can get from her while he can get it. In the meantime, he knows that someone is out to get the McKay’s. All of them. I didn’t read the first two books (I know! I read out of order), so I’m not sure what happened with Neve and Brannon, but I know that people ended up dead, Neve ended up arrested and Hannah got pregnant. It’s all part of a sinister plan by the person that attacked Moira in the beginning of the book.
I did like this book, as I like most of Shiloh’s books. The only part I didn’t like was Moira. Well, it’s not that I didn’t like-like her, she just wasn’t my favorite heroine. There was one scene where she verbally went after Gideon in front of the whole town and that cinched it for me. I really don’t understand why Gideon carried a torch for her all those years. The story was good though. Very interesting. Surprisingly enough, I knew who the villain was from the start when I’m usually clueless. I do think I would have enjoyed it much more if I would have read this series as a set.
