Desperate to protect her father from trial and death, Genevieve breaks off her engagement with Christian Amesbury and marries a blackmailer. After a year of marriage, she flees her husband's violent domination only to have fate bring her back to Christian. Just when she thinks she's started a new life of safety and solitude, her husband tracks her down, stalks her, and threatens everyone she loves.
Still brokenhearted over Genevieve's betrayal a year ago, Christian can't believe she's come back into his life--and worse, that she's done it on the anniversary of his brother's death, a death that haunts him. Though tempted to throw her back into the river where he found her, he can't leave her at the mercy of the terrifying man she married.
When her husband torments Genevieve and puts the Amesbury family in danger, Christian will do anything to protect those he loves...anything except give Genevieve another chance to break his heart.

There is something sweetly divine about leaving the world of today and slipping into the world of the past with lords and ladies and all the society of the ton through the pages of a great regency romance. Propriety that makes you yearn to see it broken to get to that kiss that is so deeply desired between the characters, but would be such a scandal. This book adds the twist of a jilted lover, turned rescuer, turned true love...OH. SO. GOOD! And what one woman will do to protect her family's name and reputation...becomes her own "perfect secret." Don't miss out on this one! It really is a GREAT READ!
First, I love all of Donna's writing! This wasn't my favorite in the series, but I still enjoyed it!! I loved that we were able to hear more about the Amesbury family and we finally get to know more about Christian Amesbury and the story behind his shy, quiet behavior. His story is sad, the guilt he carries is huge and unwarranted, but through it all he remains the perfect son, gentleman, and friend anyone could want in their lives. Eventually, we watch him come to realization and I loved how he handled the direction his life took. Genevieve, I wanted to smack her, I really did. She had a good thing and out of a misconception of something she thought she could control, she drops the best thing that ever happened to her. As she developed in the story, I grew to love her, feel sorry for her, and I even ended up cheering her on. I love this series!! I love Donna Hatch and her work!! And I can't wait to hear Grants story, which I hope will be the next in the series!
