In my review for Slow Burn, the first book of this series, I predicted that Ms. Walters' writing and story telling would only get better with each book of the series, and I am pleased to say that I found this to be true for Mine Until Dawn. While I loved Slow Burn, I loved Mine Until Dawn even more.
In this book we are introduced to another Fitzgerald female, this time Jade. I adored Jade. She was so identifiable to me. I admire the way she moved forward from a disastrous failed marriage and weight issues and reinvented herself into a stronger, self confident, fabulous woman. She is a real woman that is easy to relate to. Along with Jade, we meet Vince. Like Ron Nobel (*sigh*) in Slow Burn, Vince is a bit of a tough guy, mysterious and a bit distant at times. (Can I get a shout of for the bad boys?) Vince comes from a troubled family. He and Jade have a bit of a past, and I loved watching them rediscover each other. The attraction between these two is tangible and smoldering. When their hunt for an ancient Mayan artifact brings them on a path of danger and theft, Jade and Vince work to trust each other as their relationship is blooming around them.
Mine Until Dawn is a quick-paced thriller of a romance. From a steamy relationship to action and danger, it has everything a reader could want. Ms. Walters' writing is relaxed and informal, drawing the reader in immediately. There were moments that brought tears to my eyes, quite a few laugh out loud moments, and moments that made me hold my breath. If you enjoyed Slow Burn, you will LOVE Mine Until Dawn. And stay tuned to Reading Lark. I have a strong suspicion that Vince will be showing up as one of our Book Boyfriends in the very near future!

Summary from Goodreads:
She's armed with a new attitude and a kick-ass wardrobe...
By age twenty-eight, art historian Jade Fitzgerald has had a marriage from hell and an equally nasty divorce, worked hard to control her weight and her arrhythmia. The last thing she needs is another man messing with her head or shooting her heartbeat off course. That is exactly what she gets when an aloof and mysterious stranger storms into her life.
He's cynical and doesn't take crap from anyone...
Former investigative reporter Vince Knight is on a quest to recover a priceless, ancient Mayan artifact, which he believes Jade's mother stole. He's skilled at gathering information while remaining emotionally detached, until he meets Jade. The voluptuous woman stirs in him a hunger he hasn't felt in a long time and a protectiveness he can't explain.
Until, an insane man decides to add Jade to his collection of beautiful and rare things...
Neither of Vince nor Jade expects passion to flare so fast or danger to dodge their footsteps. To defeat a ruthless art collector with a twisted agenda, Jade and Vince must learn to trust each other and embrace their growing feelings.
