Madeline is a wealthy widow with a young son. She was truly in love with her husband and misses him and is not looking for a replacement.
Luke is a wealthy viscount who is much in demand. He has no plans to marry again. An incident from the war in Spain has made him afraid to love again.
Someone is attempting to blackmail Madeline with excerpts from her late husband’s explicitly detailed journal. She confronts that man one night in her home and is forced to hit him with the fireplace poker. The only man she trusts to help her is Luke Daudet, Lord Altea. They spent one night together a year ago and the attraction is still strong; stronger than they both would have liked.
This is a wonderfully well-written historical romance with some suspenseful twists and turns in addition to sensual love scenes. Luke and Madeline have both loved and lost, but are unable to keep themselves from falling in love. Luke’s protective instincts and wartime experience are essential to keep Madeline safe from more than one ill wisher. There is a very interesting subplot involving Luke’s sister and her childhood sweetheart. I really enjoyed this story filled with romance and suspense and recommend this book and the entire series.
