Now this is how it's done. When you suddenly realise you are crying without being conscious of it, that is a good sign. This is not so different to the last Yates book I read. There is the smexy in the first chapter and then the consequences. But there is a lot more in this book. Yes there is anger, but there is sadness and loss and grief and pain. So. Much. More. Allegra has known Christian for years, her best friends brother who orchestrated her prestigious engagement to royalty when she was only sixteen. Years have passed and he has married and been widowed but still remains untouchable. With her wedding approaching, Allegra is a little despairing, feeling the trap closing on a loveless royal marriage. When she sees a man at a masked ball and there is an immediate connection, she decides this is her chance to have a choice, just once. You see where this is going. *nods* Yes, dear fellow reader, the mysterious masked man with whom Allegra has an instant physical rapport is none other than her brother's besty. Christian. Who luckily is a Duke because her parents are going to be soooo annoyed about her messing up a royal marriage. There is so much angst in this. Allegra and Christian have been aware of each other for years but their relationship has been full of his rigid disapproval and her defiance. Now they have to make things work and Christian has "reasons" that make it impossible for there to be a normal loving marriage. I love it when there are "reasons". And he isn't a manwhore either. *swoons*. Overall, I loved this book. It has all the kinds of feels I like...love. This is why I will always read this author, even after one that wasn't quite what I wanted.
