That begins to change when he meets Victoria and the feelings that he has when around her. They then find themselves in a situation where they both become an unlikely pair and find a way to walk the thin line between love and hate. They can’t deny the attraction they have for one another. What does the future hold for Victoria and Blake? Read this book to find out. I enjoy reading historical romance novels and this book is a good example of the reason why.
