Synopsis

Fara Bellamont has been back in society for a year after leaving Cluny Abbey, where her uncle sent her long ago. When he chooses a suitor for her for marriage, she fears that she will be forced to marry a stranger and live a miserable life.

But, Fara finds herself thrust into an adventure of a lifetime when unforeseen circumstances cause her to place her trust in a strange man for protection. His intervention not only saves her, but puts her in an even more compromising position.

Grant Hill, a trading captain, is enchanted by the young heiress not only because of her beauty, but because she is hardly conventional. Underneath her ladylike exterior lies a tigress. Grant cannot help but offer his protection as she is in need and he is far from immune from her charms.

Fara just never bargained on the passion that she feels for Grant Hill. As events unfold, she must decide whether her desires and the dictates of her heart should trump the rules of society in this exciting tale.

***Amanda #NerdGirlWitch Review***
 This was a amazing read! Marie is a brilliant author and I enjoyed reading this immensely. The twists and turns flowed beautifully and the romance was epic and heart pounding.The Characters were sexy, compelling and stubborn, and the story was beautiful, romantic and at times even a little dangerous. I loved that the characters were kind of stuck with each other and at times had a kind of love/hate relationship as it added fire to the scenes, you could tell however that they didn’t ever hate each other and you could see their relationship continued to grow.I loved all the history that comes with reading a period story like this. Historical romance is chock full of history and intrigue, and that is one of the things I love about them. Marie did a fantastic JOB on this one and I loved all of the historical stuff that she added to the story to make it seem as if you had really been taken back.
Don’t miss out on your chance to read this piece of history!
