The second in the series that I've read and I enjoyed it just as much if not a bit more. I do like the tortured hero and Amaury fits the bill quite nicely. Loved the interaction between the two protagonists and their backstories, but the plot lacked oomph and by the end there were no "bad guys". I like hard conflicts and this one played the misunderstanding card too much for my preference. The ending just sort of fizzled, too. Entertaining enough to spend a couple of hours with a smile.
