Michael Carver, Earl of Blandon, has known Beatrice Hawkins since her sister married his best friend. Michael has a terrible romantic past (including a duel that cost him an eye) and avoids all entanglements. When Ashton Blakely, Duke of Summerson, married Beatrice's sister he bought her guardianship from her cousin. The cousin has reneged and sold Beatrice to a nasty man that has had three previous wives who died under mysterious circumstances. Summerton asks Michael to help Beatrice escape. With mounting danger, can Beatrice and Michael admit how they feel about each other and find true love.
This was such a delightful novel. I loved Beatrice and Michael. I kept routing for Michael to admit how he feels and to keep Beatrice safe. I liked the drama and the romance in this novel.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
