Jonathan Redmond knows Thomasina de Ballesteros is trouble and not just because of the knife that gleams in her hand as she hovers in the shadows outside the Duke of Greyfolk’s window. Beautiful, intriguing, and as tempting—and complicated—as sin, Tommy has an agenda of her own, and the last thing Jonathan needs is to be drawn into her dangerous plans—or her arms. If only he could resist! A nobleman’s natural daughter in search of belonging and a youngest son hero who’s tired of being dismissed by his father find friendship, purpose, and love in this remarkable story that tackles serious social issues with a combination of sharp, witty dialog, delightful humor, and a much-talked-about deck of cards.
Verdict Poignant, funny, and heartbreakingly triumphant, this captivating romance from Long (A Notorious Countess Confesses) is exceptional in every way; not to be missed.—Kristin Ramsdell, Libn. Emerita, California State Univ., East Bay
