Felix Rivendale, the Marquess of Wrenworth, is the ideal gentleman, a man all men want to be and all women want to possess. Even Felix himself almost believes this golden image. But underneath is a damaged soul soothed only by public adulation.
Louisa Cantwell needs to marry well to support her sisters. She does not, however, want Lord Wrenworth—though he seems inexplicably interested in her. She mistrusts his outward perfection, and the praise he garners everywhere he goes. Still, when he is the only man to propose at the end of the London season, she reluctantly accepts.
Louisa does not understand her husband’s mysterious purposes, but she cannot deny the pleasure her body takes in his touch. Nor can she deny the pull this magnetic man exerts upon her. But does she dare to fall in love with a man so full of dark secrets, any one of which could devastate her, if she were to get any closer?
I really enjoyed this book. There were lots of twists and turns and it kept me on my feet and wanting more. This book was very well written and the story was told very well. I loved every page of it.
I really liked the fact that Lord Wrenworth was looking out for his sister in marrying Louisa Cantwell, but shortly after fell madly in love with her. However Louisa took a little bit longer to admit that she was in love with him. I love the fact that after Louisa was mad at Lord Wrenworth that he tried everything to still make her happy. I will read this book again.
