Sebastian Easton always vowed he would avenge his stolen youth and title. Now back in London, the rightful Duke of Keswick—returning from battle a wounded, hardened, changed man—cannot forget the brave girl who once rescued him and his brothers from certain death.
Lady Mary Wynne-Jones paid dearly for helping the imprisoned young Lords of Pembrook, and she remembers well the promise she made to Sebastian all those years ago: to meet him once more in the abbey ruins where they shared a bold, forbidden kiss. While Mary is now betrothed to another, a friendship forged with dark secrets cannot be ignored. Unexpected passion soon burns dangerously between them, tempting Sebastian to abandon his quest for retribution and fight for a love that could once again set him free.
REVIEW: It is a given that the genre I read most, which is romance, requires me to suspend my belief to a certain extent, and I am very happy to do so.
When I run into a story that has me in a permanent state of disbelief, I tend to be a bit disappointed because of it. I was hoping for an element of surprise at the least, but none was had and that’s what made this story only good and not extraordinary, which I’ve always gotten reading Ms. Heath.
Here it is in a nutshell: well written, decently paced but too predictable. Will I read the other two books in the series? YOU BET! As Ms. Heaths fan I can’t pass it up, but I do hope that the upcoming books will have more of Ms. Heath’s ‘passion’ in them.
