Lady Victoria 'Torrie' Ann Keyes had turned down many suitors. But when she found herself surrounded by fire at Madame Michaela's dressmaking shop, she vowed to marry the man who rescued her, if she lived. ........... The man who saved her was Wynn Ingram, Viscount Ingall. He had been exiled six years ago for dueling with Lord Lynbrook. He was NOT accepted by polite society and could care less by the fact. He was only in England to deal with three problems, all concerning letters sent to him by women. When Torrie offered marriage, he politely refused. He did, however, consider the government post her father offered him. Regardless of what Wynn said, he was very attracted to Torrie. .......... One of her rejected suitors, Lord Boyce, was out to compromise her. Lord Boyce and Wynn knew each other from younger days. Neither cared for the other. But Lord Boyce needed Torrie's money desperately and would go to any lengths to get it. ........... ***** Very well done! This story began in the middle of a dangerous situation and captured my interest immediately. The author added little sub-plots, such as the three women Wynn was dealing with, to keep events lively as well. ........... This is the PERFECT book for a dull or rainy afternoon to help the time FLY by. Very good reading within these pages!
