Amy Hart has avoided visiting her
sister for a number of months now. But she figures she has
to finally “bite the bullet” and cross dimensions to see her
before it might harm the baby to time travel. You see, Amy
is six months pregnant and knows she will most likely run
into the baby’s father when she visits her sister. The
father; Alex, is her brother-in-law’s (Mac) best friend.
When she first met Alex, he was trying to keep her safe and
one moment of unbridled passion had Amy seeing a future for
them, until Alex brutally dumped her and headed back to his
own dimension. Now Amy has had six months to harden her
heart and wants nothing to do with him, especially after he
publicly denies his part in the baby’s paternity.
Alex wants nothing more than to have
Amy “Red” Hart in his life. But it is this love that will
keep him from obtaining the one thing that he wants more
than life itself. There is a prophecy that foretells the
woman who bares his child being tormented, and he wants
nothing to do with causing Amy more pain.
Suddenly they are both thrown back into
danger when Alex’s estranged half brother (Julian) is out to
kill him and teams us with a man who has tried to kill Amy’s
sister (Stephanie) and Mac, after breaking him out of jail.
As they work to keep all themselves out of danger and foil
the sinister plot that Julian and his accomplice are
dreaming up, Alex might just find out what is really the
most important thing to himself overall, and Amy might just
change her mind about Alex.
Last Man Standing is a
fantastic follow up to Swift of Heart. This story
follows Amy and Alex and their rocky romance. Well, it is
rocky because Alex is trying to do things to protect Amy and
all they end up doing is making her mad and confused. The
author does an incredible job of getting the reader to
understand the cultural aspects of this parallel world. Ms.
Davies also continues to write stories that have super
spunky, take no prisoners, strong women characters who will
not be “walked over” for any reason. If you are a fan of
strong and smart-mouthed female characters then you won’t
want to miss the adventures of the Hart sisters. Last
Man Standing is a keeper. Although Last
Man Standing is the sequel to Swift of
Heart, it can be read alone.
