Craving by Helen Hardt

Your Escape Into A World of Dark Mysteries & Spicy Romance.

-- A Haunted Man --
How can anyone resist a damaged hero? Talon Steel was so broken and I can only hope he isn't beyond repair!

Jade Roberts' life has imploded and she's gone to her best friend to lick her wounds. Her bestie happens to be rich, lives on a successful ranch/winery, and offers the almost perfect sanctuary to soothe Jade's soul. The only problem: her gorgeous and moody older brother, Talon. He was a walking orgasm and Jade couldn't resist him. Not that he tried very hard to resist her. But the more they came together in passionate embraces, the further away he seemed. His traumatic past tormented his present and his walls were practically impossible to scale. Those insurmountable obstacles didn't stop Jade and by the end, I think her determination to really know the truth of Talon would be even stronger. I'm sure the next book will delve more into it and I can only hope that her patience holds on for a little bit longer.

I had a hard time really connecting to this story and I'm not quite sure why. I know it wasn't the writing because Helen Hardt can write. I figured that out when I fell in love with her Blood Bond Saga. I was fascinated by the flashbacks, although they depicted the horrible things Talon experienced in the past. I think I just wanted more Talon. The fact is, much of this book proved to be a bit repetitive and while that can be enjoyable to some, I was looking for the meat and potatoes of the story. I'm looking forward to the next book to see just how the author will develop Talon and Jade's relationship and if his story will finally be told.

-- About the Book --
After being left at the altar, Jade Roberts seeks solace at her best friend's ranch on the Colorado western slope. Her humiliation still ripe, she doesn't expect to be attracted to her friend's reticent brother, but when the gorgeous cowboy kisses her, all bets are off.

Talon Steel is broken. Having never fully healed from a horrific childhood trauma, he simply exists, taking from women what is offered and giving nothing in return...until Jade Roberts catapults into his life. She is beautiful, sweet, and giving, and his desire for her becomes a craving he fears he'll never be able to satisfy.

Passion sizzles between the two lovers...but long-buried secrets haunt them both and may eventually tear them apart.
