    Mia Featherstone has found some treasures on the Earl of Hartsfi

    Mia Featherstone has found some treasures on the Earl of Hartsfield's property and her lover has found out and wants a piece of it. Mia isn't about to give up the location of the pieces and soon finds herself beaten up and fearing for her life.

    Since her lover doesn't seem to want to get anywhere near the Earl's property, Mia makes a run for it and is soon rescued by the Earl himself.

    The Earl, Simon Blakesworth, takes Mia to his home to protector her and to give her time to recover.  He further offers his protection to Mia by asking her to marry him. Unbeknownst to Mia, Simon has been in love with her for years and he sees this as the opportunity to make her his.

    Since she has had a lover, Mia tells Simon that she must wait to marry until she is sure she is not carrying another man's baby.  Mia is also sure that once Simon finds out that she was stealing from him, he will want nothing to do with her even though the proceeds from the sale of the items went to his tenets.

    As they try to solve the mystery of the true identity of Mia's lover, it gets harder and harder for Simon to resist Mia's charms.  She is all he has ever wanted and she is almost his.  Will Simon forgive Mia for her theft? Will Simon confess that he is in love with Mia?

    I really enjoyed the storyline. It was not your traditional historical romance as Mia was not of the same class as Simon. I even enjoyed the characters tremendously. But having said that, there were times that I thought the writing was very amateurish. I also didn't like that facts about another couple kept coming up (like they were in a previous novel), only to find out that their story hadn't been written (at least I couldn't find it anywhere on the author's webpage). If there are that many details about another couple, I want to be able to read about them (personal pet peeve)!

    Thanks go to NetGalley and eKensington for the copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    It's been a while since I have read a historical romance. Man,

    It's been a while since I have read a historical romance. Man, they are one of my favorite genres. Here's the deal, was it an earth shattering, life changing book? No. But it was really good. I will definitely pick up another book by Kelley.

    I'm one of those people that LOVES a flawed character. The more messed up, the better. I think I just like to see how people can overcome their inner demons. I love an underdog. I think someone being at the lowest of the low will fight harder in life. They're hungry. They just want it more. The flawed character in this novel is Simon Blakesworth, the hero of the story. Was he flawed? Yes. Was it huge? No. I think that the author could have taken it a few steps further. I would have loved to see her really rake this lead hero over the coals. It was just so close to being that, it almost felt like Kelley wanted to make Simon Blakesworth more tortured but then she pulled back. Here's my thoughts on writing a flawed character and this is coming from someone who doesn't write ... so I more than likely don't have any clue as to what I'm talking about but I am a reader and I know what I like. And you get to hear that! Lucky you!

    Brace yourselves ... this explanation and description is going to be pretty rocky. Okay ... I think that creating a character is like making a wreath (hey, I'm a crafty lady and this is what came to mind) ... you add so much crap to a wreath that you look at it and think, "Dear, Lord. That is ugly as hell." and then you add more to it. Then lo and behold, it's perfect! So take the character to the point where they are repulsive and you can barely stand them ... then just one more step further is the perfectly flawed character that you get to spend 300-some pages fixing. I think that Simon Blakesworth was almost a perfect hero. Sooo close.

    Now, Mia ... our heroine ... was pretty awesome. I liked how she was a wise woman (a medicine lady, healer, nurse). I think that brought a lot of tenderness to her but on the same note, she wasn't overly caring about people. This is another time when I think that the character Mia could have withstood a little more umph ... no ... it's not a word ... but it is a sound so it must count as a word.

    The story was great, lots of suspense and intrigue ... I really liked that part of the story. Some twists in there that were pretty unexpected. I enjoyed how some of the surprises just crept up on you. I'll be picking up another book by this author, definitely.

    OH ... almost forgot ... this is the second book in a series. While it's not a BIG deal, I did find it a bit of a deal when I didn't know what was going on in some sections ... it wasn't that much of the book but I did get a little confused a couple of times.
