Every great romance comes with a risk…
After a duke’s betrayal, the resilient Sarah Forrester reinvents herself as the Golden Lady: society’s leading light, the beautiful and witty life of the party. It’s all a façade of course-one that protects her from another intimate disloyalty. When her old friend, Lieutenant Jackson Fletcher, returns to London, he is determined to rediscover the true and trusting Sarah he once knew. It’ll take more than a kiss and a promise. It might even call for an innocent and necessary deception.
Then Jackson is enlisted to help capture the lead suspect in a murder– a man who happens to be Sarah’s most ardent suitor. Jack must continue the deception, and weathering this newest and gravest betrayal will be Sarah’s ultimate test. But as Jack’s passion for her grows, he must also reveal his own secrets. And as the killer turns his attention to his pursuers, more than love and trust is put at risk.
I truly love Kate Nobles style of writing. Her characters have flaws, depth, feeling, emotions, REALNESS. And I love that! When I say they have realness, I mean they have realness. They can be downright annoying at times- not in a bad way but in a “I love you but I don’t like you right now” kinda way!
I loved everything about the characters. Sarah is beautiful, angry and protecting herself behind a big fat façade. Jackson is a loyal, wonderful hero for Sarah and I was so intrigued by him. I could have read their story for EVER. I didn’t want it to end. The drama, the angst, the suspense, the romance- It all blended together beautifully to make me one happy, happy reader!
I like the development and growth that was visible on every page. I like my characters to grow together and be better people when they are together and that is absolutely the case with Sarah and Jackson. They compliment one another, they make each other better people. They are simply better together- and Jackson fights for her emotions and her love and that made me just LOVE him so much!
And on a side note the cover to this book is just GORGEOUS!
This is my first book by Kate Noble but it certainly will not be my last! I look forward to searching out more of Kate Nobles books and seeing where she takes me in each of them!
