I only read Ian's story, so I won't rate this book. But "In From the Cold" only deserves maybe 2 stars. Allanna really annoyed me. She was equal parts rude, uptight, naive, abrasive, and stubborn. I can't even come up with one positive thing to say about her. Well, no - after thinking about it, I can say she loved her family and took care of them. But she worked all day long to take care of three grown men that could take care of themselves quite a bit more, so she went overboard with it and that part isn't a positive thing in my eyes. Anyway, I'm ranting again about the female lead. *sigh*The only reason I kept reading was because of Ian. He can host my tea party any day.
