Viscountess Felicity Barbridge escaped a violent marriage with her life because she was willing to make desperate choices. Now those choices are back to haunt her, as is the object of her girlhood obsession, Asher Seyton.
Asher was never anything more than a servant’s son, but he’s elevated himself through an education and is now a respected solicitor. He only returns to his childhood home to help with a financial issue, but when he realizes Felicity is being threatened, he’s driven to stay and help. Even if he must now face all the feelings for her he tried to repress over the years.
Will Felicity be able to trust Asher enough to share more than passion? And will Asher’s own secrets unravel all they’ve built?
Although a tad disappointed to start this series on book 4, I really enjoyed it a fair bit!
We have the heroine of our story, Felicity Barbridge, who has escaped an abusive relationship and eventually falls into the arms of a childhood friend who has always fawned after her. Of course, it’s not that simple. They must both find the strength and courage to love on another amidst all the danger thrown in their direction throughout this amazing novel.
I love that this books leaves behind the upper class man meets lower class woman and flips it upside down. It’s a nice and refreshing change from so many books I’ve read over the years. Not to mention it’s steamy and delightful in every way you would hope it could be.
It makes me want to go back and read the three books leading up to this one. I can’t wait to see what leads to the final amazing chapters of this book.
