Ms. Claremont grabs your attention in the very beginning of the story with an escape. Her descriptions on what the characters endure have you at the edge of your seat. I devoured this book and could not wait for her next ones. If you love historical romances with a bit of darkness then I recommend you reading not only this book but this series. Ms. Claremont is making name for herself and her writing!

Instantly, you become involved with the characters. The story is not without it's problems but the slowing down of the plot was only temporary. I wanted the happy ending but hated it to end.

Lord Ian Blake had gone to India to save his best friend, Hamilton, from himself. With Hamilton finally killed because of his cruelty, Ian returns home 2 years later to face his widow, Lady Eva Carin. He is shocked to learn of her infant son Adam's death and her subsequent commitment to an asylum by Hamilton's older brother, Thomas. Having loved Eva from afar for as long as he can remember, he determines to at least see her, and what he finds upon his arrival at the facility shocks him to the core. She has been living a nightmare, and before the night is over he rescues her from her captivity. However, it will take much more to save her from her own guilt and from the laudanum she had been sedated with. Eva isn't the only one who needs saving, as Ian is wracked by his own guilt over Hamilton's death. Is Eva truly mad? Can they save each other before Thomas's henchmen can find them and return her to the asylum? I enjoyed this book and plan to read the rest in the series. I literally didn't want to put it down from the very beginning and cheered for Eva and Ian the entire time. The end was a nice surprise.
