This is the first in The Brothers Sinister Series.
Miss Minerva Lane is doing her best to blend in with her surroundings and has done a good job until Robert Blaisdell, the Ninth Duke of Clermont arrives in town. Robert is attempting to correct the wrongs his horrible human being of a father did.
I loved how Robert didn't start out as the romantic hero. As the novel progresses, we see the development of both characters. We know Minnie is hiding a big secret. Toward the end, there is some betrayal of Minnie by Robert.
The characters in this book are strongly written and I was on the edge of my seat as the novel unfolded. It was pure awesome. Again, Ms. Milan has created characters that are intelligent and stand up for their beliefs.
