A kiss neither will ever forget … a forbidden attraction that can't be denied …

After a disastrous first Season, Lydia Darling abandons all hope of love and marriage. A simple country girl, she does not belong amongst the debutantes of the ton. Rather than rely on her family for the rest of her days, she chooses to find work as a governess, a position that allows her to hide away from the society that shunned her. However, she cannot seem to forget the mysterious stranger she encountered at a ball during her Season … a man whose kiss haunts her dreams. He never even told her his name, yet Lydia cannot forget the one man who made her crave his touch in a way no other has been able to since.

Sinclair Clayton thought he'd never see the young lady he kissed in a garden during a London ball four years ago … until she turns up on his doorstep applying for the position of governess to his young son. He finds his heart quickly ensnared by Lydia, the strength of their attraction growing more powerful the longer she remains in his home. The illegitimate son of a viscount, he's always stood on the fringes of society, never feeling as if he belongs. All that changes when he is in Lydia's presence, and with her becomes the place he knows he should be.

Yet, Sinclair's loveless marriage to a woman who has made his life a living hell from the moment he said 'I do' prevents them from being together. That does not stop them from wanting one another, despite how hard they fight to resist their visceral connection. Will the whims of fate ever allow them to spend their lives together, or are they doomed to long for each other while remaining apart?

Lidia and Sin's story. It was a good read, both of the main characters were very likeable. I had read one of Victoria's other books that I had not thought was very good so going into this one I had my doubts. I was plesantly surprised!

Do you believe in love at first sight? How about love at first kiss? Did someone ever ruin you for anyone else because they were "the one"? Welcome to the life of Lydia Darling. She meets a stranger in a tree and he turns her whole life upside down and disappears, without her ever knowing his name. No spoilers here, you're going to have to read this to find out just how twisted fate is. Another amazing story in the Scandalous Ballroom series. You don't have to read the previous 5 books to appreciate this one, but I recommend that you do because you definitely won't be disappointed.

Well, the wait for this book was well worth it after all of the little tidbits that we were given, the book does not disappoint. Lydia and Sinclair met once 4 years ago and from that day until the present, they maintained an affection for the other that was never voiced openly as they never met again and did not know each others names. Lydia again comes into Sinclair’s life as governess to his young son Henry and as time goes by they both acknowledge the draw they feel towards each other. Sinclair is in a loveless marriage to a woman who is/was unfaithful to him and is dying. This book is so well written that it draws you into their lives on a daily basis and you experience the emotions as they do, especially Henry’s loss of his mother. This is a great read and I would highly recommend it, you will not be disappointed.
