A man torn between two worlds. Both need him...neither wants him.
Groomed for a life amongst the English aristocracy, Lord Erroll Rushton is unexpectedly thrust back into his father’s Scottish world when the Englishwoman he compromises refuses to marry him.No gentleman breaks into a lady’s bedchamber...but then, no lady sleeps with a pistol under her pillow. Miss Eve Crenshaw will marry for love or won’t marry at all. When London’s most notorious rakehell breaks into her bedchamber in the dead of night and compromises her beyond repair, Eve plans a daring escape that shocks even the Earl.
Tarah Scott's newest pair of mismatched aristocrats are an absolute delight!!!! Erroll is on a mission to once again remove his head from the marriage chopping block. Surprisingly enough this time he has neither compromised, nor met the lady in question who is accusing him of dastardly deeds. Unwilling to face the consequences of his falsely accused crimes, he decides to take matters in his own hands and confront the "lady" in question. Unfortunately, Erroll makes a slight miscalculation and ends up in more trouble than he bargained for.
Eve was a completely delightful character. The one thing that is consistent in all of Tarah's historicals is that the heroines are completely endearing, sassy, straight-forward, and absolutely enchanting. She takes the best loved traits out of this generation of strong women, blends them with believable historical accuracy, and this results in the perfect recipe for a show-stopping new generation historical romance! Eve was my favorite character, but I must confess that her father was a close second..lol. It is quite obvious where Eve got her personality from.
This book was a complete enchantment from start to finish. I loved the characters, the plot, the humor, and every little detail in between. The journey that ends in a fascinating dynamic between Eve and Erroll is one you do not not want to miss!!! I highly recommend this read to historical lovers everywhere!
