The Madaris family returns with Slade Madaris taking center stage in a classic love story. The backdrop of a secret adoption brings a touch of mystery to this entertaining story. Jackson brings back beloved characters from her
popular series, and the reunion is exceptionally satisfying.
Slade quickly decides that the newest member of the family is meant to be his life partner. He offers his encouragement to Skye from the beginning, and she experiences the type of family solidarity that she never received back home. But Wayne becomes a complication when he refuses to take no for an answer.
Then it turns out there's more to Skye's adoption than anyone knew, but Slade and Co. are more than capable of untangling the past. (ST. MARTIN'S, Nov., 304 pp. $6.99)
