*Starred Review* Blinded by an explosion, Izzy Titan drowns herself in a sea of self-pity. Worried about their sibling, Izzy's sisters arrange for Nick Hollister to take her—against her will—to his ranch, a place where those wounded in body and spirit have a chance to recuperate. At first, Izzy continues her pity party, but Nick pushes her to find her true potential. While Izzy rediscovers her old self, her half-brother, Garth, continues his long-running attempt to destroy the Titan empire. Unbeknownst to Izzy, Garth and Nick have been best friends since college. Nick worries how the feisty female he has come to love will react when she finds out. In the third in her Titan series (Under Her Skin and Lip Service, both 2009), Mallery has penned an emotionally satisfying and thoroughly engaging story about a woman who is forced to trust because of her physical limitations and a man who needs to trust in order to be a complete person. Watch for the next installment, Hot on Her Heels (2009).
