Twelve years on, they have made a good job of pretending, they may have almost forgotten. But when they get in touch via Facebook, it seems that it is all still there. They quickly find that they are intensely compatible in ways they hadn’t even begun to explore before they were forced apart.
Can they put aside their fears and give it a go? Or will deep rooted doubts and insecurities tear them apart?

As they struggle to stay away from each other, secrets will be revealed, tempers will flare, and hearts will be broken.

When Devil, the most infamous member of the Cynster family, is caught in a compromising position with plucky governess Honoria Wetherby, he astonishes the entire ton by offering his hand in marriage. No one had dreamed this scandalous rake would so tamely take a bride. As society’s mamas swooned at the loss of England’s most eligible bachelor, Devil’s infamous Cynster cousins began to place wagers on the wedding date.
But Honoria wasn’t about to bend to society’s demands and marry a man just because they’d been found together unchaperoned. No. She craved adventure. Solving the murder of a young Cynster cousin fit the bill for a while, but once the crime was solved, Honoria was set on seeing the world. But the scalding heat of her unsated desire for Devil soon had Honoria craving a very different sort of excitement. Could her passion for Devil cause her to embrace the enchanting peril of a lifelong adventure of the heart?
This book is superbly written and beautifully descriptive without being overdone. Instead each word paints the picture of ducal times where the mighty Cynster family reign supreme with warrior like noble men that personify Alpha males to the extreme in a way that leaves you titillated.
Sylvester Sebastian “Devil” Cynster, head of the family barrels down the lane on his demon horse and happens upon Honoria Prudence Wetherby…and a dying man.
From the beginning I was engaged and loved every moment Honoria and Devil traded quips and all the tender moments they encountered.
I’ve been reading a lot of contemporary books lately, but historical romances are my first love and this was a perfect story to get caught up in.
I read this in one sitting and did not want to put it down. Devil is so sensuously hot. He is my perfect man- Tall, dark, extremely handsome you can’t tear your eyes away, and dominating and commands respect from everyone but allows his woman to be the exception. Because in the Cynster family, when a man finds his wife, she rules over his heart completely.
I love a good story where it’s the man who knows what he wants and tries to convince his woman that it’s the best course of action.
“I am not marrying you just so I can go to bed with you. I mean-” She caught herself up and breathlessly amended, “So that you can go to bed with me.”
…Grimly, he nodded. “Fine.” Tightening his grip on her hand, he tuned and stalked on… “You,” he stated, as they rounded the corner of the house, “can marry me for a host of sensible, socially acceptable reasons. I’ll marry you to get you into my bed.”
The love scenes are smoldering and tangible. Ms. Laurens writes them as they’re meant to me, breathtaking and beautiful with so much heart and palatable love. I encourage every fan of a good romping romance with a mystery to solve to give this book a try. I loved every minute of it and believe you will too.
The characters are people of their own and leap off the page and into your heart.
