Should love be a challenge or a soothing balm on your heart?

Nicholas Challoner, Marquess of Ranelaw is a man with a mission and nothing is going to stop him from ruining the daughter of the man who destroyed his sister's life and tore his family apart. Granted his family was utter chaos but ruinous situations will be corrected regardless of how many years it takes and who gets hurt. He has been plotting this well calculated revenge for years and he was mere steps away from executing his plan when what should happen to stop Renelaw in his tracks but fate. Now this fate that stepped in looked nothing like what he could have imagined would slow him down as Miss Antonio Smith the young woman's companion and chaperone is not at all appealing. She is dressed in a dowdy and shapeless fashion to keep attention away from herself but she is taking his breath away and Ranelaw cannot explain the reason why. She is not the woman in any of his dreams but the stirring in his heart and thoughts in his head about her are saying otherwise and diverting him from his target. Toni also has a mission and that is to keep rogues like Ranelaw away from charge at any cost but can she keep him away from herself.

Ranelaw may be hiding secrets but they are nothing compared to the ones that Toni has walked around with and secreting behind. She lost her family because of her poor decisions banned to a life of servitude. She has accepted her fate in life, will not let it happen to any other girl, and has her own tricks to keep it from happening to another. A man may sweet talk his way into a young woman's favor but a smart companion can stand between them and halt any further discussion. However, the talk toward her from Ranelaw is what has her heart aflutter again and she knows better and can stop herself, but does she want to. Having been at this cross roads before and knowing one road leads to ruin and one to safety which one will she take. Ranelaw seems to speak true and can take a hit and still come back for more yet is that what she wants, another man who says he loves her but does not have the backbone to see it through to marriage.

The challenge becomes not what Toni and Ranelaw are doing now but everything that Toni has ever done or known in her past showing up to reclaim her. Does she want the present and a future with Ranelaw or repeat prior mistakes. She has to separate right from wrong and know in fact that the decisions she makes again affect everything she ever will do with every imperfection that makes up her character out for public consumption, again.

Anna Campbell put her unique mark of excellence on each historical romance book she writes. This one in particular stands out with its fresh storyline, remarkable characters and never ending surprises the reader does not see coming. The mark of a good book is you are so saddened to have it end and this one brought tears to my eyes!

I'm in the midst of reading this book. It started with great promise but her writing style is almost tedious at times. She goes into great detail of the mental anguish and thoughts of the character to the point that it's repetitive and unnecessary. You can go a whole page without dialogue between the characters. I have found myself skimming the paragraphs just to get to the dialogue. I loved her first two books and I would recommend them. I would skip this one. Antonia and Nicholas are good characters but the writing style takes away from their story.

    320 pgs on Nook, Great read for historical romance

    I really enjoyed this book. Every once in a while I thought the author was a little long winded on the character's thoughts and I found myself trying to speed read thru the paragraph to see what happened next so I guess in a sense, that's a good thing.

    This book focuses on a woman who feels her "season" days are over and she's destined to be alone the rest of her life even though she's in her 20's. But she has more inner power than she realizes when she tames a rake and they fall in love.

    Great book right to the end. I didn't like the Epilogue and found it almost demoralizing with what happened in the carriage ride home. Hmmm, after leaving a convent... really?

    Other than that, great story.

    Great book!

    This is the first book that I've read that was written by Anna Campbell, but it won't be the last. This is the story of Antonia, a woman who has hidden her identity for 10 years to protect her family from scandal. She disguises herself with glasses and frumpy clothes and works as her cousin's companion under an assumed name. Nicholas, the Marquess of Ranelaw, has been biding his time until he could exact revenge against the man who ruined and abandoned his sister 20 years ago. He sees Antonia as the way to achieve this revenge. The only problem with this scenario is the attraction that develops between these two. Can they overcome their pasts and embrace the future that seems just out of reach? 3+ steam

    So Enjoyable!

    This is my first book by Campbell and I'm so glad I read this! This book is fabulous. It was a little slow at first but hold on to your seats cause it gets faster. I fell in love with the hero Nicholas, Lord Ranelaw, I love how developed he was. I was sorry when it ended. If you love historical novels you'll love this book!
