Blurb:

Lady Evangeline Stuart chose to wed a tyrant with a title, or so society believes. That was five years ago—five long years that she could have spent with her first and only love: Lord Hadley Fullerton, the second son of the Duke of Claymore. Now Evangeline is a widow, and her soul cries out for Hadley. But when they see each other at last, everything has changed. The passion in his eyes has been corrupted by betrayal. Somehow Evangeline must regain Hadley’s trust—without revealing the secret that would spoil the seduction.

Hadley is determined not to be distracted by Evangeline. He and the other Libertine Scholars are in pursuit of an enemy who has been striking at them from the shadows, and Evangeline’s mere presence could be dangerous. But with one smile, one touch, one taste of Evangeline’s lips, Hadley’s resolve is overpowered by far more pleasant memories. As the two enter into a discreet affair, Hadley vows to give her his body, never his heart. That, she will have to earn.

ARC Historical Romance

review

A story that takes on the emotional roller coaster with soaring heights and lows. The characters are put through the ringer. I knew it was too good to be true when the story starts off as if the world is right and the happy ending is near. There wouldn’t be a story if that was the case. Nobody has it easy and in the case of Evangeline and Hadley, their world is torn asunder and left bereft. Mistaken motives and a forged letter causes a lot of heartache and sorrow.

Going on in the background is the continuation of the Libertine Scholars’ task of finding a murderer. Each of Hadley’s friends have been touched in one way or another by their enemy. I found it a little difficult to follow because I haven’t read the previous stories. However, it was a interesting plot with the feel of suspense to it.

As for our hero and heroine, besides having a star crossed lovers theme following them around, they were actually quite entertaining. I loved the dialogue and their love story was truly worth the ride to the end.

I really enjoyed how each character had their own heartbreaking story. It gave me the feels and made me sympathize with them all the more.

*I received an ARC by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
