    Another excellent love story by Kathryn Smith. This story introduces the reader to North, the youngest and illegitimate of the Ryland brothers. Although you don't have to read the series in order it does give you back ground info. The passion between North and Lady Octavia is well developed, but not over done.

    Solid Entry in Ryland Brothers Series - Stand Alone

    North Sheffield-Ryland was the illegitimate son of Viscount Creed. After his mother passed, he was brought to live with his father¿s three other legitimate sons, his half-brothers. Try as he might he was never fully accepted by society so he diverted his energies into becoming a highly sought after private investigator. In cleaning up dirty little secrets of the ton he gained an acceptance and gratitude that he no longer desired. ------ Based on his reputation, the Earl of Spinton came to him asking for an investigation into disturbing letters his fiancé had been receiving. North knew the man¿s fiancé, Lady Octavia Vaux-Daventry. Octavia had been his childhood best friend and love whom he¿d been forced to give up twelve years ago when her wealthy grandfather came into her life and claimed her as his heir. Convincing North that `he wasn¿t good enough¿ for the granddaughter of an earl. ----- Octavia, had resolved herself to keeping the promises made to her mother and grandfather of becoming a lady and marrying Earl Spinton a man she didn¿t love. Thrown together to smoke out and unmask the author of the letters the passions of their youth were re-kindled with a vengeance. As he worked to expose the blackmailer, another more dangerous enemy emerged. North would be willing to do what ever he had to in order to keep Octavia safe and back in his arms again. ------ *** I¿ve been impressed with this authors ability in crafting well-written, adventuresome and sensual novels while thoroughly enjoying her Ryland brother series. Smith excels in creating strong, yet complex characters in her stories. She puts an edge on North, the dangerous but somewhat tortured hero, and creates empathy for Octavia who so wants to make good on her promises, even at the expense of her own happiness. Her writing is smooth, she establishes a nice intrigue, and the romance is lovely and sensual. While not my favorite Ryland book, I can still recommend it for those like me that tend to follow a well-done series!
