E novel was pretty decent there wasn t any unnecessary clutter I am also glad that Ms Harris took the time to develop the charactersspecially since this is a short novel I do feel that perhaps Navarre s past could have been developed a little We know he lived on the streets and was tortured at one point but some of the details were still a little murky for me Frankie also had uite the history but that was much clearer I liked that she was so committed to saving JacuesThe only problem I really ncountered with this novel was in its length Frankly the book is short it s only 190 pages While I did say the pacing was good the shortness of the novel did make some scenes appear rushed This could be a prereuisite for this type of novel though But I know I speak for a lot of readers when I say that I would not have minded at least another 100 pages All in all there aren t really "any problems with this book The author is very talented "problems with this book The author is very talented It a paced completely self indulgent book Happy ndings all around Which is good Who wants to read a depressing story And if I read it in one sitting you know it s worth your timeThanks Ms Harris for signing my copy I completely wasn t From the Enemy's Point of View: Humanity and Divinity in an Amazonian Society expecting it The Devil s Heart by Lynn Raye Harris is about two wonderful and sympathetic lead characters who are both coming to terms with their difficult pasts hers a beating and a miscarriage due to a robbery at her store his as a kid growing up on the rough streets of Buenes Aires The author gives us a hero and heroine that you can relate to and want to root for to get their well deserved happyver after Some things I really liked about this book wereThe way the book started with the heroine holding the hero at gunpoint That s different for a Harleuin PresentsFrancesca s loyalty to her friend JacuesA lovely Doris Salcedo epilogue If you are looking for a deeper and darker Harleuin Presents with very well defined characters and lots ofmotion I recommend this book This is the first book I ve read by this author and I really look forward to reading many WOWwonderful intense motional second
