July 23rd 2012 by Lyrical Press
Kidnapped and sold at auction in a London brothel, Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam squelches an undeniable attraction to the masked stranger who purchased her, pits her wits against him, and escapes him and the scandal that would ruin her life.
Unable to resist temptation in a London brothel, Duncan Ferrers, Marquess of Dalbury, purchases a fiery beauty. She claims she’s a lady, but how can she be? No lady of his acquaintance in polite society is anything like her.
Then he discovers she is who she says, and that this latest romp has compromised her reputation. He knows how that is. One more scandal and he’ll be cast out of London society, but he needs a wife who’ll provide an heir to carry on his illustrious family’s name. He seeks out Katarina, intending only to scotch the scandal, but instead finds his heart ensnared.
He’s betting their future he’ll capture her heart, but does he have what it takes to win the wager?
WARNING: A blade-wielding heroine who crosses swords with a master of sensuality.
→ Opinion | A simple, fast paced and sexy novel. It’s an incredible page turner with lively characters and interesting story.
It’s like we’re there, close enough to the hero and heroine to witness the events with them. Sometimes I wondered about some of their behaviour, how they could resolve their problems in a better way, and it made me doubt how real their reactions were.
I enjoyed the author’s tone but the writing itself could be improved. Overall, it was a great surprise.
