Rating: 4 Cups
Damaris Howard has learned to avoid romantic entanglements to protect the independence afforded to widows. Besides, she has no desire to be some lord’s mistress, not even if such lord is the handsome and utterly intriguing Lord Alec Rawdon. It is far better to engage in a few flirtatious remarks, if only Damaris could keep her renegade thoughts under control whenever Alec is around.
Alec is done with romance. His former fiancé has left him for someone else, and he would rather not have history repeat itself. Still, he cannot seem to stem the interest for the widow Howard. She is utterly unlike any female he has ever had the occasion to know.
When Damaris is attacked by ruffians in London, she runs to Alec for aid. Never could she imagine a protector like Alec who stays by her side through the worst circumstances. Nor could Damaris ever know that her shady past will come knocking in such a startling and dangerous fashion. In the end, it is Damaris’s own desires that become her most dangerous adversaries.
With sparkling dialog and characters full of vivacity and action, this is an entertaining read. Alec is a dashing hero only slightly removed from his Viking forebears. Damaris matches him perfectly. The twist at the end is slightly over the top, but all in all, this book is well worth picking up.
