Duty Calls by Sherry Gloag

She’d saved his life…

Rafe Hawk refuses to accept the inheritance, of a large English estate, and the title that goes with it, after his birth father’s death because the man chose duty over the woman he loved and their son.

And when he finds himself temporarily living at Kinsale Hall, he’s not prepared to trust anyone associated with the place, including Trudi Delaney and her daughter.

So why, when he looks into their eyes, does he suddenly remember a woman who vanished without a trace after saving his life one stormy night ten years earlier?

Now he could destroy hers.

Something more than the handsome American’s instant dislike of her, disturbs Trudi Delaney. Why, when he’d come to design some chalets for her, does he spend so much of his time in areas of Kinsale Hall off-limits to visitors?

Trudi, who is still plagued with nightmares of her entrapment in a brutal five year marriage where she was held a prisoner of her cruel and psychotic husband, has been a single parent for more a decade. Eleven years after the night she and an unidentified man barely escaped with their lives, Trudi is still unable to remember the hours she spent with this stranger—the hours in which her beautiful daughter was conceived. Now, more than a decade later, she is confronted by another stranger. Will this one destroy everything she holds dear?

Reviewer: Dolce Amore
Rafe Hawk almost died eleven years ago, killed by his stepbrother, but he was saved by a mysterious woman who disappeared the next morning. He always dreamed about finding her again… but he never dreamed finding her with a daughter. His daughter. But she also had another child to raise, the daughter of her best friend who just died. Could he open his heart for little Lizzie?

When she was sixteen years old, Trudi Delaney ran off from her twin brother. She married and she was held prisoner for the next five years; and her brother thought she was dead all that time. All changed on the night she saved Rafe’s life and they had to run for their lives. That night they shared some hours of passion, and she conceived her daughter, but in the morning, after leaving him, she realized that she lost 24-36 hours of her life and she couldn’t remember a thing of what happened that night.

Lost, pain, tragedy, Ms. Sherry Gloag has a wonderful gift of making us feel what her characters are feeling. She captivates us, keeping our attention until the very last word. She is a great writer and I have become one of her fans.

However, I would have liked to have found more about the five years she lived with Denny, Trudi’s ex-husband and about the eleven years after she saved Rafe’s live. That’s why I give this book just 4 stars.
