STORY: Violet Knowlton is betrothed to the sensible, if tedious, Sir Godfrey Maitland. When Godfrey escorts her to a fencing demonstration, she looks forward to the adventurous diversion, but everything changes when she realizes the swordsman displaying his skill-and dashing good looks- is none other than her childhood friend Kit.
Soon the flames of their forbidden past ignite into a passion neither can refuse. Although Violet has been promised to another, Kit remains her first and only love. He vows he will possess her, no matter what stands in his way…
REVIEW: While this novel seemed to start off a little slowly, I finally caught onto the the plot and enjoyed it. There is a lot of sword fighting in the novel which may or may not be of interest to people.
This is a sweet story of two lonely people drawn to one another as children. They lose contact for 10 years yet come together again. The heroine is engaged at that time but they both soon realize they have always loved one another and are able to find that elusive happiness.
