The dashing, licentious Marquess of Ranelaw can never forgive Godfrey Demarest for ruining his sister – now the time has come to repay the villain in the same coin. But one formidably intriguing impediment stands in the way of Nicholas’s vengeance: Miss Antonia Smith, companion to his foe’s unsuspecting daughter.
Having herself been deceived and disgraced by a rogue-banished by her privileged family as a result and forced to live a lie-Antonia vows to protect her charge from the same cruel fate. She recognizes Ranelaw for the shameless blackguard he is, and will devote every ounce of her intelligence and resolve to thwarting him.
Yet Antonia has always had a fatal weakness for rakes…
A story that begins with retribution and revenge for a wrong done years previously to Lord Ranelaw’s sister. He has the chance to destroy Demarest through his only legitimate child, Cassie. The same way Eloise’s life was destroyed.
Antonia is trying to hide from her own mistakes; she is Cassie’s companion. Unfortunately, she is finding herself attracted to Lord Ranelaw: and he can’t get Antonia out of his mind.
From the beginning of the book you are hooked, I actually could not even put it down, finished it in a couple hours. You are pulling for Ranelaw and Antonia from the first look they exchange. Both will do just about anything for the ones they care about. They fight and love with an incomparable passion.
Will their secrets though come back to haunt them and possibly destroy the best thing either one of them have ever found?
Another wonderful book by Anna Campbell! You will not be disappointed with this addition to your library.
