Lady Esme Hawkins has a huge secret and she goes to great lengths to protect her family. She is stunned to see Highland Knight Camden McLeod at a dinner party her brother is giving. Esme had "met" Cam at a bordello where she was doing research on for her latest book. Cam hates having to follow his client into a bordello. But, as a Highland Knight he is bound to protect. After kissing Esme senseless, he is determined to find out who she is. When he finds out who she is and she is engaged to a man not worthy, he is determined to have Esme as his own.
This is another wonderful installment in the House of Trent. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Esme and Cam's story. As usual, the characters are so well written you become engrossed in the adventures unfolding in the pages. There was a mystery sub-plot with the murders/injuries to Cam's fellow Highland Knights that added to the novel.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
