"Unlike the delicate, hothouse rose, the Gypsy rose is riddled with thorns. Few men are brave enough to take one in their grasp."

Tatiana Angelo always dreamed of a life of opulence and glamour. When her cousin became the wife of the King of Cardenas, she was swept away by the intrigue and decadence of palace life and became the jewel of the royal court. Catching the eye of a rich and titled lord seemed like a dream come true, but a few months after their whirlwind elopement, Tatiana found herself abandoned by the man she once thought loved her. Now, all she wishes to do is return to her previous life, one of simplicity and freedom. When Adrian Wilshire enters her life, Tatiana is certain she's found in him the freedom and passion she desires. Despite the scars left on her heart by her past love, she throws caution to the wind and opens herself to the possibility of a future with him. But when the truth of his identity comes to light, the pain of his betrayal is too much to bear. Yet, despite her anger and sadness, she finds that turning her back on him will be harder than she could have ever imagined.

A few months ago, Adrian Wilshire was nothing more than the illegitimate son of a courtesan and titled lord. After years of hard work, he's finally saved enough to begin the modest but quiet life he's always craved, hoping that in doing so he will finally leave the ghosts of his tormented past behind. When he sets eyes on the vivacious Gypsy dancing under the moonlight, Adrian knows that he has finally found the woman that could make his dream of a happy life complete. But the strains of a responsibility he never wanted weigh heavily on him, as the demands of an estate left to him by his father press in on him from all sides. Can he live his life trapped in a gilded cage he despises and still keep the heart of a woman who desires freedom above all else? With his vengeful half-brother bent on destroying everything Adrian has inherited, as well as his life and love, Adrian will find keeping the balance between duty and desire even more complicated.

Can Adrian fight the dangers of the present and the ghosts of the past while claiming the fickle heart of the Gypsy Rose? Can two broken hearts find comfort in each other and lasting love? Elise Marion's Kings of Cardenas saga continues with a story of heartbreak, passion, deception, and love.

This book takes you on a journey with Tatian & Adrian that leaves you wanting to read the book in one setting. Also, the characters from the other KOC books return & the warriors of the Lady Knights of Barony make a appearance. Therefore, this is a must read and if you have not read her other KOC, Lady of Barony books or her Angel series books then you need to.

Wonderful series! Can't wait for the next book "The Gypsy". Historical romance at its best!

Not as good as the first two in the series, but good. Still some errors but not as many and it didn't detract from the story. I failed to understand the couples problem that kept them apart. A bit flimsy. I didn't feel the heroine's personality was consistent. Elise is a good writer so I'll probably buy more of her books.

This is the 4th book of the series and my favorite! The author has a way of making you feel the joy, pain and anquish of her character's. I love how the character's from the previous books cross over, so reader needs to read in order. A must read series. Not your usual cookie cutter romance - way better! Ljb
