After Lucien finally learns why Elise left him, will he take her back and salvage their love.
This is the third book in the "Seasons" series. I will admit that I didn't read the first two (taking care of that!) and found that it was great as a stand alone. It was a quick read that I was immediately hooked into. I loved the twist with Kirkford and hopes this spills over into another series. Jess Michaels is one of the great erotic historical writers.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book provided by NetGalley and the publisher. Thank you.
