Margaret, the eldest of the misbegotten Amesbury family, is accused of murdering her jerk of a husband and then fleeing. Conner Jackson, a Bow Street Runner, is hunting her down to bring her to justice. Or so he thinks...
This romantic story of loss and betrayal, forgiveness and redemption, and strangers marrying, will leave you laughing, crying, and swooning. Sprinkled liberally with suspense, mystery, and heart-melting kisses, this is not your ordinary historical tale of an arranged marriage nor of redeeming the rakes. Fans of Victorian and Regency Eras, as well as those seeking clean and wholesome romance with plenty of chemistry, will love this story!
I really had a fun time with this book. I'm loving these Amesbury siblings because they are such a diverse group of characters but at the heart of it, they are all strong, loyal and brave. Enter Margaret, accused of murdering her louse of a husband and on the run. Conner Jackson is out to retrieve her but boy does he get more than he bargained for!
The mystery and intrigue started right off the bat, throwing me into the thick of things right along with Margaret. I loved how the whole story played out because between the mystery and the sparks between Conner and Margaret, I was entirely engaged from beginning to end. Margaret is feisty and determined but also so vulnerable and hurt. I really loved her. Bridging the gap in station between Conner and Margaret was tricky at times, especially for Conner, but thankfully Conner wised up about certain things. Good thing, because I was about ready to smack him upside the head too. :)
Donna Hatch is definitely a favorite of mine. Her books have vibrant characters and excellent pacing with so much going on to entertain my brain. This book was exactly what I was hoping for.
This is book five in this series but I believe it can stand alone. However, you will probably enjoy this series best if you read it in order.
Content: mild violence, peril, kissing
