Scarred in a duel over a feckless female, Gavin Lawrence leaves America to take up his new duty as Marquess of Effingham, vowing to never again care for another woman.

But lurking in the Marquess's crumbling manor is a young woman in terrible danger.

The self-sufficient daughter of a soldier, Dillian Whitnell hides her injured cousin in the secret passages of Arinmede Manor following an attempt on their lives.

As their hide-and-seek game leads to increasingly close encounters, Gavin's irritation turns to intrigue, and intrigue into forbidden passion while the real villain stalks them both.

Beauty and the Beast but oh so much more! What a wild and wonderful, action-packed, romance-filled, delightful story set in the early 1800’s. And, it is predominately about family, family ties and family loyalty. Gavin Lawrence comes from America to take up the title of Marquess bringing his younger brother along. Living in his crumbling estate he is surprised by the return of Michael who brings a woman injured in a fire to his home. Little did Gavin know that her companion arrived with her. Not wanting his quiet interrupted he was surprised to find that he was not only taking care of a burn victim but playing hide and seek with the companion, Dillian. Dillian and Blanche are cousins but also staunch supporters of one another – especially when they realize that someone is trying to kill one or both of them. Gavin and Michael are brothers who care for one another with Gavin as the older always trying to provide for Michael. The brothers become involved in sorting things out for the ladies and this includes riding down a mob, instigating a mob, putting fires out, starting fires, thievery, visits to high society, disguises and a whole lot more. I have enjoyed every book I have read by Patricia Rice and look forward to reading many more in the future! I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review. 4.5 Stars
