  • Absolute perfection!

    When a book's opening line has the heroine saying to the hero, “I have come to ask you to murder me, my lord.” You know you're going to be in for a wild ride! Once again, I'm swept away by the exquisite literary experience of a Grace Burrowes romance. This author truly is gifted with words, a lexicographer's dream who deftly arranges just the right expression to fit the story, the historical timeframe, and the gravitas of the emotions being conveyed. For that alone, her books are a joy to read. The story itself is more than worthy of the effort. Stephen is the last single Wentworth, a man with more than enough cause to be a selfish reprobate who can't help being kind, generous, and loyal. Abigail seeks his help to extricate herself from a situation involving a member of the peerage who is seeking to do her harm, but as she and Stephen get deeper into the secrets underlying the subterfuge, they also fall deeper into each other's hearts. Abigail is a simple woman of inordinate intelligence and more than a few insecurities. Stephen is certainly her intellectual match, and while he has his own demons to battle, insecurity isn't really one of them. Their carefully-orchestrated dance around their mutual attraction reveals so much about their hearts and their histories, and I was amazed at the many intersections their lives had shared even before they knew each other. And just when it looks like ALL the secrets have been laid bare, the author drops the biggest secret imaginable! One that I didn't see coming at all, though in hindsight the author certainly left enough hints to support its plausibility. I was truly stunned, and couldn't wait to figure out how they were going to salvage their HEA from this. Of course their HEA was triumphant and in perfect harmony with the characters' true natures. The way this played out was in perfect step with everything Abigail and Stephen had built into their relationship right from the start, and I absolutely loved these two all the more for how well they work together. If you love historical romance, you owe it to yourself to read this and every book by Grace Burrowes. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

  • Frolicking fun

    Abigail asks Stephen to help her fake her death. Instead, he offers to fake an engagement with her. Her death won't stop the marquess who's trying to steal her letters—but Stephen's protection just might. As the heir to a dukedom, Stephen's influence ranges farther than even the despotic marquess's does. But is that enough to save Abigail? And what's Stephen to do when he realizes he can't live without her? This book is frolicking fun, with an intriguing mystery, strong characters, and steamy love scenes. Abigail is independent, self-possessed, and normally capable of taking care of herself. Stephen is clever and randy and a force to be reckoned with despite his leg injury and his façade as a frivolous heir. The book is a delightfully complex, low-angst read full of insight and subtle humor. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.

  • Loved it

    Stephen is heir to a dukedom and is a mechanical genius. He, his older brother and two younger sisters grew up in poverty with a violent, hateful, physically and verbally abusive, alcoholic father. Stephen the man is wealthy in his own right and underneath his strange eccentric brilliance lies a heart of gold. His good works go unrecognized. That is his wish. A desperate female investigator Abigail comes to him for assistance in setting up her fake death. Over their short acquaintance Abigail slowly piece by piece reveals her real reason for his help. Stephen now knowing the extent of danger Abigail is in, he enlisted his brother, cousin and close friend in Abigail's battle. The end result is confrontational, dangerous, shocking and healing. A must read. You will not be disappointed. Reasons I enjoyed this book: Action-packed Entertaining Happily Ever After Page-turner Romantic Realistic Tragic Unpredictable Witty Wonderful characters
