My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I got my first taste of Anne Stuarts work form a little short story titled “The Wicked House of Rohan.” I later found out that that story was the prequel to the series that this book starts. I went to her website to see what other books she had written (had never heard of her before) and was immediately happy that there was more to the story. This book is outstanding. I loved Elinor, Francis, Charles, and Lydia. Most of all I loved Francis, Viscount Rohan. He is definitely alpha and when he wants something he goes after it and gets it. Elinor is the perfect woman for him, because she provides the challenge that his jaded life so sorely needed, plus she is the only one to truly stand up to him besides his friend Charles and his housekeeper Mrs. Clarke.
You will really enjoy watching these two couples fall in love, mainly Francis and Elinor, but you get a taste of Lydia and Charles also.
If you are the faint of heart, you best lay back and get comfortable, because this story is absolutely smoking hot, if you know what I mean.
