On the day of her wedding, standing on the church steps, Venetia Stratham found out that the man she loved would never be faithful when she got a whiff of his mistresses perfume. She walked into the church and announced there would be no wedding. Her parents disowned her threw her out of their house. She became the companion to her best friend and has been living in France until she heard a rumor.
Venetia has learned that Quinn Wilde, Earl of Traherne, a man cut from the same cloth as her former fiancee is courting her sister. Venetia enters the gentleman's club to prove to her sister what type of man Quinn is. Quinn saves her from being groped by a drunken gamester and ends up kissing her. As they were leaving the club, they are attacked. When there is an attempt on their lives, Quinn proposes.
Venetia has to fight her attractions to Quin and Quinn has to attempt to win his wife's trust. The sparks fly as they battle their attractions while attempting to find out who is attempting to kill them.
This was an amazing novel. I was hooked from the first chapter to the end. There was a passion that just sizzled over the pages. Can Venetia tame the rogue? Can Quinn prove to Venetia that he is more than a rake? This is one of those books that you put on the shelf and when you want to read a book that you know is going to have a great HEA, you pull this out. If I read paper, this is the book that I would have put in a place that I could find it quickly. Loved it.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
