Four years ago, a mesmerizing stranger pulled Lady Rebecca Newland from her runaway coach, galloping to her rescue in a fog-shrouded forest. Though she was just seventeen, Rebecca felt an irresistible desire for the mysterious man and swore that she would someday be his bride. But now she is betrothed to another man whom she detests - and Devon Sinclair, the future Duke of Pembroke and her hero, lies tantalizingly beyond her reach...
Haunted by an unspeakable past, Devon has no intention of taking a wife, not even the enticing Rebecca. But then his father rules that Devon must wed by Christmas or forfeit his rightful inheritance. Now, with his fortune at stake, Devon sets out to lure Rebecca to his bedů where the most unexpected secrets and lies stand in the way of their scandalous, explosive passion.
What started out as a good romance, soon turned into a story that was slow and hard to finish. While the plot had a good theme, the characters weren't able to hold my attention, which made reading the story difficult.
Although not adverse to reading another book by this author, this story did not appeal to me.
