Overview

SHE WAS HIS SAVIOR
Banished from London for her reckless behavior, Lady Miranda Sinclair is robbed by a dashing highwayman en route to the country. By offering him a kiss in lieu of the jewels she had to leave behind, she commits the very type of act that caused her exile. When her dour guardians extend her punishment to performing charitable work at the local orphanage, she's further tempted by the home's owner, a provincial gentleman who stirs her passion in a most wicked way.

HE WAS HER DOWNFALL
Desperate to save his orphanage from financial catastrophe, Montgomery "Fox" Foxcroft leads a double life as a highwayman. The arrival of wealthy, well-connected Miranda, whose kiss he can't forget, presents a lawful opportunity to increase his coffers. His problems seem solved-until she rejects his suit. Out of options and falling for the heiress, Fox must risk what principles he has left and take advantage of her wicked ways-even if it ruins them both.

    Review Copy Provided by the Author

    I loved the idea of this book. Misbehaving daughter of a duke gets sent to the country only to find that her imprisonment is going to be a lot worse than she originally thought. Enter in Mr. Fox, owner of the shabby orphanage she is supposed to be helping with, and you have yourself a delicious love story just waiting to burst forth!

    I have to say, Miss Burke does a FANTASTIC job with describing her characters emotions as well as the reasons for their choices. The depth of the characters was amazing, and I often found my chest clenching at all of the different circumstances they found themselves in!

    The only problem I have with this book was that Lady Miranda waits until the very end to finally realize she’s in love with Fox, and even then it’s almost like she still has this “holier than thou,” attitude. Things are quickly set to rights in the epilogue, where she gushes about being with such a wonderful man, but still. As a reader it bothered me, because, to be quite honest. I was obsessed and am still obsessed with fox. He pretends to be a highwayman. Wears a mask. Works with his shirt off. Saves young children–I mean really? Come on? What more could the girl ask for!

    And in the end she’s still not sure about him!
    HE SAVES LITTLE KIDS!

    All in all, it’s a wonderful book. I would totally recommend this delightful regency romance to anyone who wants an interesting and provoking read. I give it a lovely rose.

    A word of warning, a few graphic sex scenes.
    Hats off, Miss Burke

    Entertaining Read With An Engaging Couple

    Darcy Burke has created my favorite kind of story, that of opposites attracting, and made it even better by setting it in the world of the aristocracy in this romantic historical read that is the first book in a new series entitled Secrets and Scandals. This story features two fully fleshed-out characters who, upon meeting each other, are profoundly affected and show a distinct change in their thoughts that make them better and happier people.

    Miranda was on the path to self-destruction with her hoydenish ways and fear of familial embarrassment have her parents exiling her to the countryside to curb her wild tendencies. At first she sees it as torture, but after spending time at the local orphanage and the man who runs it, her eyes become opened to how frivolous her life has been and she goes about changing her perception of herself and becomes a stronger more likable woman because of it. While I was irritated by Miranda and her elitist attitude at the start, I found her evolution to a more understanding and compassionate person both believable and delightful. Her change didn't happen overnight, it evolved slowly and through subtle ways. Her relationship with the orphanage's owner, Montgomery Foxcroft, also progressed slowly and made for a more satisfying and believable ending as they both got to know each other in many little ways and through many different circumstances.

    After his father squandered away the family money it's up to Montgomery Foxcroft to do whatever necessary to keep the orphanage his family has supported for centuries running, even if that means donning a mask and robbing from the rich. Fox is a commendable man just wanting to do what's right and having to do things against his conscience to help those less fortunate. He's sacrificed everything, his own comforts and future, to help his young charges and I couldn't help being drawn to him. He's not conventionally handsome but his kindheartedness makes him so. He's immediately drawn to Miranda and thinks her dowry would be the answer to all his problems, but again his conscience won't let him hurt her by compromising her. As he gets to know the real her he falls more in love with her but knows her parents will never allow a marriage with someone of his low rank and that's a sad realization.

    The relationship between the two of them was adversarial at first but then morphed into friendship and then romance. Seeing how much Miranda's evolved from her parent's way of thinking gives hope to a future with Fox, but her wanting them to be proud of her keeps a barrier between them. Only when she realizes that finding happiness and personal pride matters most will she truly break away from her parent's elitism. The slow evolution of her and Fox's relationship allowed for a steamy build-up of sexual tension you could cut with a knife and some very sexy skin-on-skin action.

    Surrounding this wonderful couple is a colorful and intriguing cast of secondary characters that add much enjoyment and intrigue to the story. There's a nice bit of suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat as well. So give this debut novel a shot and enjoy.

    WHY OH WHY DID FOX LOVE MIRANDA??????? She was a snotty witch u

    WHY OH WHY DID FOX LOVE MIRANDA??????? She was a snotty witch up until the ending. Fox was a delight all the way through the story and deserved someone who loved him for himself. I wish I could give 1/2 stars, because this is better than 3 stars, but not for 4. Yes, it is free, so no complaints about $$$ spent on it. I have read 4 of Darcy's books, and I usually like both the H/h, but not this time (until the ending). Thankfully there is an epilogue, which was good. I am not going into the premise of this story, as it has been explained, but it is an enjoyable read. Has some exciting moments, a few twists, I also thought it moved at a nice pace. Loved the secondary character's too. There is sex outside of marriage, that is somewhat above mild. Loved the description in the brothel -wow - hot!! (ljb)

    Slow to start but worth the ride

    This book was great read. It was long winded in some parts, but it's many other attributes over shadow that by far. 700 pages on my nook, throughly entertaining and free! I think anyone who is complaining just wants a "wham bam thank you ma am" book. This book is definently steamy toward the end, almost boiling. Not for anyone under 18.
