Erica Brogna’s parents doted on her and taught her to think for herself. Many boys she grew up with had fallen in the WWII, shaking her childhood faith. In rides a handsome stranger, at the hour of her most desperate need. A woman who is her close friend and mentor is trapped in a burning house. After making an unsuccessful rescue attempt, Erica stands by as this man rushes into the inferno and carries her friend’s lifeless body out.
Lorne Kincade can’t out run his past on his Harley Davidson WLA, the civilian model of the motorcycle he rode in the war. He’s tried. He’s been a vagabond biker in the year since the war ended. His Uncle Ivar bequeathed him a ramshackle cottage in Sanctuary Point, on the Great South Bay of Long Island, NY and now he’d like to hope for a future again, repair the miniscule place, and settle down. The only problem is, a young woman with hair the color of mink is starting to get under his skin and that’s the last thing he needs.
 


My Review:    
This book had some many things that I loved to read about. Love, speed... a HARLEY, mystery, real life, and even thou Erica Brogna was loved growing up she still finds herself doubting not only herself but everyone else.

Author Nike Chillemi writing is amazing. Her style of taking you back into the past and bringing out interesting facts all the while keeping you on the edge of your seat with mystery and intrique is awesome. 

The characters with in the pages are so well rounded and they pull you right into their lives. 

A must read. And I am looking forward to reading more of author Nike Chillemi's work.

So due to the above, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of: 


Five Clock Rating!!!
