This is book two, but it is a stand alone. If you read book one you already know some of the characters, and if you thought Tombi was a sour puss, Chulah is worse. I absolutely LOVE April, I just want to give her a hug, and punch everyone that treats her bad. The chemistry between April and Chulah though...OMG! HOT! I really enjoyed this book, I haven't read a Debbie Herbert book that I didn't like, they are all amazing. I am really looking forward to reading the third stand alone book in this series. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
