Mallory Westin was born into power. But when her family's quest for more power caused her a broken heart, she turned her back on the only life she ever knew. Now a successful owner of a security firm, she's determined to forge her own path. But sometimes one's past isn't so easy to leave behind. Mallory has to take control of the power she was destined for after discovering her politician father is involved in an assassination plot. Things only get worse as the one man she's always loved becomes a target as well.

Reid Simpson had loved Mallory since they were teenagers. Then one night changed everything as she suddenly broke his heart. For years, he escaped the pain as he built his resort and casino empire. He pushed her from his mind, if not his heart. As Reid encounters increasing danger, he finds that Mallory is the one by his side trying to protect him.

Can Reid and Mallory work together to uncover the assassination plot while avoiding the pain of the past? Or will they discover that love has a way of conquering all?

This book in the Women of Power series did a terrific job of tying all the characters from the previous books together and still giving Reid and Mallory their own story.  The story line was fast moving and I was never bored reading this book.  The whole series was terrific  A must read,!

What more do I need to say than, "It is a Kathleen Brooks book"?  I was fascinating to finally discover were the discord between Mallory and Reid came from and to discover more about how she, the daughter of rich and powerful family, got into security.  As always, absolutely loved the story and was thrilled with a couple of twists.

Ms. Brooks is a top three favorite author and I have read all of her books... Imagine my surprise when in the early pages of this I became thoroughly confused by the joining of this Women of Power Series with her Bluegrass Series... Well done Ms. Brooks!!! Throughout the previous books in this series I was well aware of the love between Mallery and Reid... I knew their story would be a "doozy" and I wasn't wrong... Lots of mystery and suspense in this one folks but nothing to compare with a love story finally let loose to flourish... Could not put this one down and wish it had been longer...Loved this story and didn't know who the would be murder was until the end...

This was a wonderful book. I found it hard to put down. It kept moving and I just couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen and how it was going to end. I loved it.

This was another great book by Ms. Brookes. I have enjoyed every one of her books. Women in Power series is a good stand alone series. However, people need to start with the Bluegrass series as they all tie in together in the end. Fantastic read. Can't wait for Nabi's story and the Rose's.
