All of a sudden in walks someone to occupy his bed but not his heart. Why is he promising her forever? 

Teryn Hall has suffered years of abuse, held a prisoner in her home by the one man who should have nurtured and loved her. Her scars run deep, and when her pain bubbles to the surface she can’t control the memories and the anguish. She thought she was doing the right thing when she walked away.

Favorite Quotes:

“Well it isn’t a family dinner unless someone leaves in tears.  Another successful year.  Who wants cake?”

My Review:
The fourth and final in the Parker series and I am sorry to see it end.  I am not a fan of angst and the main focus of this volume was quite angsty, but the sassy humor of the rest of the family, and of course the steamy love scenes, more than made up for the discomfort and conflict.  I have grown to adore this family and Leigh Ann Lundsford.  I imagine she is quite the firecracker herself, and I would love to just hang with her and drink wine.  Her writing is witty, clever, fast paced, emotional, moving, steamy, familiar, irreverent, and informal.  And I loved reading it all, despite the angst ;)  I think she should start in on the next generation of this riotous clan and just keep on going.
