Lady Nicola was born into her position and forced to marry a horrible man. He was terrible to her. In one of his many bad deeds she was introduced to Fawkes de Cressy. They both fell in love with each other over their short period of knowing each other but both forced into their own direction. But they kept each other in their own minds and that was their driving force. When they meet up again both have had some changes in their lives, although Fawkes did have more changes than her but that is best for you to read and find out. Of course the bad guys were bad an unlikable and the good guys were good and troubled. The biggest problem for the main characters is that they had no honest communication and danced around subjects that they really needed to talk about. They both had mistrust of each other for their own reasons even though they loved each other. It had a good happy ending. I did like the story. Good quick read. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.
