Overview

She can save him-or bring him to ultimate ruin.


The Earl of Markham's life is unraveling before his eyes. The harder he tries to pick up the frayed ends, the quicker his carefully guarded control slips from his iron grasp. Five years after the death of his wife, the threat of blackmail hangs over his son's inheritance.


His only hope to quell the gossip before it begins lies in a headstrong young commoner as wild and free as the English countryside she loves. She is wrong for him in every way. Yet she brings life to his colorless world-and warms his heart with a fire that threatens to shatter the wall around his heart.


Lizzie Parker is content with her garden, her village and caring for her aging father. She wants no part of the glittering London Season, but her father will not be denied his wish to see to her future. Still, she plans to do everything in her power to vex the man charged with taking her away from her beloved home. The man who once broke her heart. Markham.


She never expected his kisses to tame her resistance. With each touch he rouses her senses, until suddenly she's not at all sure where she belongs . . .

I had high hopes for this book but I was very disappointed. The characters were weak and the plot was disjointed. There was a sharp ending, an Epilogue could have redeemed this book somewhat. I have read other books by this author and liked them but not this one.

This book was filled with such detailed imagery and passionate romance that the characters really come to life. You can feel their emotion and share in their adventure. The story was also very historically accurate and authentic, which adds to the believability of the characters. This was a very enjoyable book to read and I loved getting caught up in this story. Mrs. Dicken hit a home-run with this one.
