Kula Baker never expected to find herself on the streets of San Francisco, alone but for a letter of introduction. Though she has come to the city to save her father from a cruel fate, Kula soon finds herself swept up in a world of art and elegance - a world she hardly dared dream of back in Montana, where she was no more than the daughter of an outlaw. And then there is the handsome David Wong, whose smiling eyes and soft-spoken manner have an uncanny way of breaking through Kula's carefully crafted reserve. Yet when disaster strikes and the wreckage threatens all she holds dear, Kula realizes that only by unlocking her heart can she begin to carve a new future for herself.

Given that I like the first book very much, I thought I pick up this one and see how it went.

Plot: This story follows Kula who is thrown in some troubles of the past. Her dad is accused of murder and there is not much time to save him. He gives her clues to follow and it leads her to a path she didn’t think she be on. I liked this plot. It is filled with much drama and action. Kula’s life has been hard as well. She is struggling with so much. To see her come into her own, was done well.

Love: Kula has done nothing but what others had told her. It good to see her make her own designs and of course follow her own heart. I think the guy who steals her heart knows her better than she knows herself.

Ending: The ending is bittersweet. Kula is getting what she dreamed of but at a cost. I was hoping for more of a happy ending but when you live in times like these, I can see why it was the way it was.

Overall, this is great companion story. The emotions that came from Kula and her thoughts matched perfectly. And of course the time period and the wonderfully writing only kept me deeper in the story. Forgiven is awesome!

I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!


  1. I read the first book in this series and enjoyed it. I remember that Kula was a sort of unlikable character. Interesting to delve into her own story.

    Glad your site is back up 🙂

    I think I might like the mystery aspects of this. I might have to look up the first book.
