Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey delivers “first rate romance” (Daily News) in this sparkling, passionate tale of an earl’s daughter who must convince a mysterious viscount to marry her and end his vendetta against her brother.

One duel could be considered a matter of honor, but three duels are attempted murder! With enlightened society outraged at such reckless behavior among young noblemen, the Prince Regent orders Robert Whitworth, the earl of Tamdon’s heir, and Lord Dominic Wolfe to end their dispute by allying their families through marriage. Whichever party refuses to comply will forfeit his lands and title.

Whitworth relishes the idea of sending his younger sister Brooke to his enemy’s remote estate. He knows the Wolf will reject her as a bride, thereby losing his wealth and status. The Wolf, however, is determined to scare away the Whitworth chit. With dueling no longer an available means of destroying the man he abhors, he will be satisfied to see him lose his lands and title. But he hadn’t expected his enemy’s sister to be so resourceful or resilient.

Brooke Whitworth has been dreaming of her first season in London because she intends to win a husband who will take her far away from her unloving family. Instead, she is being sent to the Yorkshire moors to wed a mysterious nobleman whose family is cursed and who has thrice tried to kill her brother. But there’s no room in her heart for fear; this man is her means of escape. She will make him love her!

    I was very disappointed in the pace, characater development, and continuity of this story. I felt like Lindsey was working toward more intensity when developing Brooke’s back story, and then backed off. It was such an abrupt, pollyanna ending. This book really disappointing and made me feel like I had just wasted the rare and precious time I set aside for reading. I love historical romance because it can be light and fun, but it needs to have more craft than this story. Sorry Ms. Lindsey…I have enjoyed many of your stories in the past.

    Disappointed. Read every word and still felt like I was skimming. Characters weren't remotely fleshed out, had no depth at all. It read like it was a first draft that never made it to its final version. I've read her for 20 years. Should have just reread a few of those books.

    Not as good as the old Johanna Lindsey books. Been reading them for more than 20 years. This one seems to be a page turner that's why I bought it. But there's something missing in the story. I will go to my old books so I can have that feel good feelings again. :-(

    Grew up reading Lindsay. Have enjoyed many of her books. Found the story slow and the characters tedious. Not worth the cost at all.
