Two years ago, Lady Sara Emerson's life was shattered by her cousin's brutal and senseless murder. When Sara began receiving cryptic letters about her cousin's murder, she turns to the one person that can help - the man that was her cousin's fiance, the Duke of Rossmoyne. Rossmoyne has just returned to England India and is surprised to find Sara seeking his help. Once he sees the letters, he insists that she move into his home so he can protect her. He slowly starts to realize that Sara isn't the plain wallflower that he thought she was when he was engaged to her cousin.
As they get closer to the murder, the desire between Sara and Ross grows. The only thing holding her back is she can't be the Duchess society needs her to be.
I hated having to put this book down. On one hand, I wanted Ross to realize that Sara was his ideal match. On the other hand, I wanted to know who killed Sara's cousin. The characters in the novel were wonderful and the suspense of them finding the killer added to the novel.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
