This book is a historical romance with a sexy steamy twist. The author does an amazing job of setting the scenes and the story along the lines of the time but by injecting some sexual chemistry between the characters making this one story I couldn’t put down.
Gabriel Rose is the illegitimate son of a nobleman but because of this is he has a lower standing in society. However he has his eye on a particular lady, even though he should. He can’t deny his attraction to Lady Celia Buchanan. Knowing that his affection and attraction to her isn’t allowed he has turned away and kept his distance until things change and what was thought impossible becomes possible.
Lady Celia has secrets of her own. She is a very strong, determined young woman, who because of circumstances in her past has become a bit of a flirt. She feels an attraction to Gabriel, there is something about the dark mysterious man that keeps drawing her in. Will the secrets he hold be enough to heal her pain and make her feel whole again? Or will the fact of his parentage or lack of mean that their connection can never be?
This story is beautifully written, you really get a feel for the era and how society viewed certain things such as a woman being a flirt and a man with interests on a lady above his social standing. The way the character come together and their personalities beautifully complement each other and takes this romance to another level.
