Lord Ambrose Wetherald is the consummate English gentleman. He discovers that Melinda de Vere is missing. She is being held in a brothel by her husband and being used by his business acquaintances. Lord Ambrose appeals to Sir Barnabas James to rescue Melinda. Barnabas has one condition - that Ambrose repay the favor in bed.
Nobody does erotic historical like Samantha Kane. I love the Brothers in Arms series and have re-read them all several times. I was thrilled that Ms Kane had written another BiA novel
Sir Barnabas has been a minor character in several of the novels. I was thrilled that he got his own novel. There was a character evolution from him being cold and calculating to being a lover and much softer to Mel and Ambrose. Ambrose melted my heart. He is a perfect book boyfriend. Dashing and elegant and he helps to soften Barnabas's edge. I was ripped apart during the first part of the book before Mel was rescued. I loved how the support from Barnabas and Ambrose helped Mel to heal and become a strong woman. I loved the connection between characters.
This was a novel that I had to start when I had a whole day to devote to reading it. I knew once I started reading, I would not put it down.
This novel is so well written. There are other historical romances that I have read that I wondered if the author even knew anything about the time period. When I read a Samantha Kane historical, I know I can immerse myself in the story and feel like I am in that time period.
Thank you for another Brothers in Arms novel!
