When you fall in love at a very young age and wait patiently for the man you love to return and he does not a normal woman would despair. Miss Octavia ("Tavy") Pierce it turns out is an extraordinary woman as she not only moves on, she prospers. Tavy still longs at times for Ben Doreé, the man of her dreams to come back to rescue her another time but does not think he will.

Tavy returns to London after spending a number of years in India growing up and around a different culture that she loved. Once back in London everyone assumes she will marry the man who has asked for her hand, but Tavy still holds out hope that the once third son Ben who has become Benjirou Doreé, Fifth Marquess of Doreé will come for her as he once did and they will be together in love.

Ben and Tavy are reunited at dinner parties, dance at balls, and dare to have a secret rendezvous or two but none of the stolen kisses, and tender caresses are enough and they both know the secrets between them are destructive. Ben does not want the distraction that Tavy provides as he is running a business both in public and private that needs his undivided attention as trying to prevent cultural disaster is a very time consuming job. Ben may save the known world but he is still it seems unable to tell Tavy what his true feelings have been for her all these years together and apart.

Tavy must deal with an annoying fiancé that is not a fiancé who won't go away, family that is trying to steer her path away from Ben, and figuring out where her life should go. Will she unearth Ben's secrets and discover that he is not the man she sees or will he tell her the truth and make her love him more? Even more puzzling is the secrets Ben did not know existed coming to life and the complexities of trying to figure out who is your friend and who is a deadly enemy.

This book is one that might appear to have too many pages, but trust me it has the perfect number. You need this amount to give you enough love, romance, suspense, danger, and well more love. At first the reader is not sure the mix of Tavy and Ben will work but trust me they are perfect together. Take this book for the "historical romance" that it is and enjoy without over thinking it.

Was forcing my self to read it

Half of the time i didn't know what was going on and was lost. I had to back track most of it to be able to understand it and was forcing my self to read it. I made it to page 63 before giving up.
