    Historical Romance

    Not your typical love story but perhaps more true to life than many historical novels. This is dark and at times gritty with hints at abuse, caning, BDSM and more. Charlotte Engles has been betrothed to Valentinian Shaw for two years when Hervey Kellett comes to her and asks her to break off with Val and marry him instead. With her older sister gone, her younger sister in need of a safe haven and no surety that Val will ever actually marry her she considers Hervey’s potential BUT asks for one kiss from Val before they break things off. Well, who knew that one kiss might mean that the betrothal would not be called off after all…especially as more light is gradually shed on Hervey’s proclivities. I have not read “The Emperors of London” series but imagine that it must be excellent from what I have seen online and especially so based on this book. This book is not for the faint of heart…but it is definitely worth reading. I admired Charlotte’s strength and love for her sisters. I found the Shaw family’s support, acceptance of all members a joy to behold. I fell in love with Val. This book made me thankful I did not live in the era. Women were “owned” by their fathers and then their husbands, a simple law broken could see a person publicly executed or transported, and things were definitely more difficult than they are now. This book made me think and care and desire to read more books in this series when they are published and also search out other books by this author. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books – Lyrical Press for the ARC – This is my honest review.
