Wow, this book just sucked me in from the first sentence! I couldn't put it down! Burke is truly one of the best authors out there, her writing style is impeccable and very unique. She draws the reader into the characters’ lives right from the get-go and we can't help but fall in love with them, care for them, and root for them!
Our H of this tale, Nicholas Bateman is a torn soul who has become so cold, stern, and isolated, nobody would want to be in his presence. However, he does open up his home and takes a wife, but she must keep to what he desires and that is absolutely no emotional attachment whatsoever. Well, the lady who becomes his wife isn't so sure she can do that; Lady Violet has always loved Nicholas but can she accept his terms and keep herself aloof and not allow her love to pour out? Will Nicholas begin to melt and allow his heart to warm and love once again?
A truly fantastic read that I would highly suggest to any historical romance lover! I highly recommend this book as well as the whole series! Dynamite, just dynamite! Be sure to brew a big pot of tea, no, wait, make that two pots of tea because you're going to need it for this amazing book!
