Russell is a Marine who was betrayed by a man he should have been able to trust and left to rot in a hole in the ground for five years. Declared dead, he eventually overcomes his captors and manages to get home just in time to stop his beloved wife, Juliana, from marrying the very man who betrayed him.
He storms into the church and whisks away the bride, his wife, who’s believed him dead for the last five years. After a whole lot of very hot sex, he gets his revenge and his wife back.
This book was a departure from most of Madison’s others because there’s usually a twist in the story and it’s usually something to do with the heroine. In this novella, the hero was hiding a secret of sorts, but it’s revealed early on. There’s was also quite a bit of going back and forth in time, which you had to concentrate on so as not to get confused. But if you want smut? You got it. This might just be Madison’s smuttiest book yet! As always, an enjoyable read.
