Lord Adam Dunsbourne is a tyrant. At least, that’s what everyone says. The tales are shocking: accounts of a man who gambled away the family fortune and keeps his younger sister, Emily, captive in their home at Dunsbourne Manor. So when Adam and his sister make an unexpected appearance at a dinner party, the scandalized whispers cannot be contained. New to the town, Phoebe Hadford hears the condemning rumors and determines to do all she can to help the baron’s oppressed sister. Upon entering Dunsbourne Manor, however, she quickly
discovers that all is not what she has been led to believe.
Adam, unsure of whether he can trust the intentions of his beautiful neighbor, is quickly drawn in by Phoebe’s genuine nature. But even as Adam and Phoebe’s connection deepens, a dangerous enemy from Adam’s past reemerges. For years, Adam has hunted for the man who betrayed him, not realizing he had only to wait. His foe has returned, and this time, he will threaten everything Adam cherishes most—including the woman he loves.
I seriously have so much love for this book, this series and this author. This is definitely one of my favorite books this year. I don't think you need to read the other books in this series to love this one but as I said, the whole series is so good. Why wouldn't you?! :) I think this book might be my favorite of the series though.
Because I really cared about the characters. I grew to know them and I loved them. I wanted all things good to happen for them- especially Adam. I wanted good things for him SO badly. He worked and worked and worked, determined to make something of the nothing left to him.
Because the last third of the book had me speed reading and holding my breath. Literally. I had to purposely slow myself down and breathe. It was fantastic.
I was invested in this story and the characters. Clearly. It was so, so good. 😍 That's how you know it's a favorite.
Content: mild peril, mild violence. Sweet kissing.
