Overview

He swore he'd never love again...
She would risk her heart time and again to prove him wrong...

Much to his aggravation, the wickedly handsome Duke of Sethe, is wanted by every husband-hunting, title-chasing female in the country, or so it seems. Twice betrayed by women he loved, Nicholas Leighton is no longer the gullible young fool he was in his youth. Having grown cool and cynical, as well as older and wiser, he has vowed to never again allow another woman to affect him emotionally, for he has learned his lessons and learned them well. So, when the breathtakingly lovely Ashleigh St. John suddenly and unexpectedly enters his life, as well as his home, he is determined to keep the alluring interloper at an emotional and physical distance. Unfortunately, he quickly discovers that some things are easier said than done.

Reckless and daring, Ashleigh St. John is an unconventional young lady with the heart of a hopeless romantic. When she meets Nicholas Leighton she is certain that she has met the man of her dreams, but unfortunately, the man of her dreams seems bound and determined to keep her at a distance, hiding behind a self-erected wall of cool detachment and calculated indifference. But having glimpsed the wonderful man behind the facade, she too is determined, determined to do almost anything to break through the intractable barriers that guard his heart, willingly even to surrender her innocence and time and again risk her ravaged heart to ultimately win his trust and more importantly, his love.

    Book exchanged for an honest review:Seventeen year old Lady Ashl

    Book exchanged for an honest review:Seventeen year old Lady Ashleigh St. John defies some social convection her grandfather Serle St. John worries about her. He informs Ashleigh that she'll be staying with Dowager Duchess Leighton while he travels abroad. Ashleigh is anxious to make a good impression and can't help but wonder if Duke of Sethe will make an appearance while she's staying there. Nicholas Leighton does his best to keep out of most social settings thanks to previous engagement and his own mother leaving. Nicholas has been informed that a young lady will be staying at Sethe manor where his grandmother expects him to visit. Ashleigh while out riding one morning runs into His Grace and sparks fly between them. Yet Nicholas can't seem to forget the past despite how much Ashleigh gets under his skin. Ashleigh cannot seem to figure out why His Grace runs hot and cold towards her. Will Nicholas let go of his past? Will Ashleigh get past Nicholas's manner? Can they admit their feelings? Your answers await you in Until You.

    I really enjoyed this novel. I simply adored Ashleigh from her wit and charm, rule breaking, and her passion. Nicholas was the classic rogue scorned and incredibly sexy alpha male. I will definitely read more from this author.

    Free book for review. The heroine, Ashleigh, is feisty, spirited

    Free book for review. The heroine, Ashleigh, is feisty, spirited, she rides a stallion in breeches, plays a mean game of chess and cheats at poker. Most importantly, she is quite perceptive. She feels an immediate attraction to Nicholas, the Duke of Sethe, and intuitively realizes it is a mutual pull. After learning about Nicholas' background, she catches on from the onset that Nicholas might be guarded and remote because of his past experiences with women who have failed him (his mother and an ex-girlfriend). She is mature for her age (17), I guess because she was raised by her grandfather under special circumstances, namely to take over her family's business and fortune. All in all, she's so sweet that it's hard not to like her.
    Nicholas is wounded and tortured and rejects his attraction for Ashleigh as soon as he discovers she's his grandmother's guest at their country manor. I disliked him for 70% of the book, he's arrogant and demeaning and it is both frustrating and annoying, I felt like shaking him and telling him to move on already. Inevitably at the end, I softened up to him, especially after a family mystery is finally resolved.
    The author often uses a rapid switch in POV that is sometimes abrupt but actually works well for me. We'll be in Nicholas' head and several paragraphs later in Ashleigh's head and rapidly back and forth in the middle of one scene. Some readers may find this choppy or prefer more dialogue and less introspection.
    The storyline flows well and I liked the author's descriptions. The chemistry between both is patent regardless of all the misunderstandings and doubts. The epilogue was great and I would love to find out what happens to Brendon, Tiffany and Alex...

    Free book for review. Nicholas falls for Ashleigh like a ton of bricks to the point he is jealous beyond belief. Where love is concerned in this book it has all the ups and downs of real life. A must read.
