Ash Turner has waited a lifetime to seek revenge on the man who ruined his family—and now the time for justice has arrived. At Parford Manor, he intends to take his place as the rightful heir to the dukedom and settle an old score with the current duke once and for all. But instead he finds himself drawn to a tempting beauty who has the power to undo all his dreams of vengeance….
Lady Margaret knows she should despise the man who's stolen her fortune and her father's legacy—the man she's been ordered to spy on in the guise of a nurse. Yet the more she learns about the new duke, the less she can resist his smoldering appeal. Soon Margaret and Ash find themselves torn between old loyalties—and the tantalizing promise of passion….
I have to admit it took me a little while to get into this book. I also feel like there was some inside information I was missing, or an inside joke, or something that I just was not getting about the younger brother...I mean is he gay, I couldn't figure out what was going on there. Maybe we will find out later.
I liked Margaret but I think she put up with way to much when it came to her family. They treated her like crap and she gets no thank you at all, ever. It is ridiculous. I was so happy at the end when she finally decided she needed to do what needed to be done. I was ready to jump up and down, it took her way to long to find her own voice.
Like every other book I have had the pleasure of reading from Ms. Milan this book is smart. It has good vocabulary words and even as a romance novel I felt smarter for having read it. Keep up the wonderful writing Ms Milan and I will support you where ever you decide to write.
