The novel opens with Claire Mayhew sneaking into a masked ball given by Cyrus Ryland. She needs his signature so she can lease one of his properties. Cyrus finds her in his study and is attracted to her. When she leaves behind her slipper, he has to find her. After hiring people, he finds Claire at the coffee house she has opened.
I just could not get into this story. I found that it just drug along and didn't flow. It was quite the disappointment after reading the first book in the series and liking it so much.
I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
