I was certain I would have loved this book, Elizabeth Hoyt's style is always impeccably captivating and sensually overwhelming, it's impossible not to be totally enthralled every time. What I really wasn't expecting at all was to fall in love with Winter Makepeace! I never felt a great connection with him and after the amazing Mickey O'Connor (the pirate hero of the previous instalment), I would have said there was no competition with anyone. Still, here I am with shiny eyes talking about Winter... Beautiful under every aspect, his tormented soul and the chemistry with Lady Isabel Beckinhall are what allure the reader the most. How everything grows and develops between the two of them not only amuses you, but arouses you. And this just from their chatting, so mesmerizing...
Romance, seduction, mystery, action, danger, this book has been one of the best historical romances I've read so far and what an exquisite cover it has! I strongly suggest you not only to pick up this book, but the entire series, because Hoyt delivers you some of the most intriguing plots with outstanding characters you can ever dream of!
