Product Description

Product Description

Catherine Denton spends five years in lonely exile because of her friendship with Wild Ryde, a notorious rake old enough to be her father. When her real father, the Earl of Trenwich, dies, she fears her life will become even more bleak, but he leaves her a fortune. As a wealthy heiress, she can rejoin polite society and have her pick of husbands. But the one man she wants is Wild Ryde's very proper son.

Andrew St. John, sixth Marquess of Ryde, spends five years struggling to save his family from the debt he inherited from his rakish father. When he makes a deathbed promise to find Lady Catherine a husband who is not marrying her for her money, he refuses to risk his hard-won honor to woo her himself. But how can he surrender her to another man when she stirs his own passionate blood?

As the attraction between Catherine and Ryde grows too strong to resist, others become determined to drive them apart. Trying to forge a bond of friendship, despite their fiery clashes, Catherine and Ryde discover clues to a secret that binds their pasts together. But it's their future that's at risk. If they can’t discover the truth about a betrayal long ago, they will fail to claim the love that is their true legacy.

4.0 out of 5 stars taken one star off for improbability at the end 12 July 2014
By Serena
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is great it has the required number of villains, kindly people, devoted companions and maids to make sure nothing really bad happens although it sometime Almost happens which I like
I also like that the heroine was not the 'fairest of them all ' which is such a bore, instead the villainess is the most beautiful.
I also like the info that ryde uncovered about the countess, that was a nice twist
After a great 75% of the book
The last 25% was a little only ok
Suddenly the heroine turns a dazzling charmer who breaks hearts left right and centre.
The most improbable thing that I found was the confession of the hero that he has' little more knowledge than you' on what to expect
Highly unlikely remembering his skill in kidding her and his determination/ self control in holding back specially the first time
I know it's fiction but come on a little realism perhaps ?? After all he is 24 in an era where men matured quickly
We don't expect many 24 years old to be monks

It was excellently written with quite a good plot but there was not enough action or suspense to keep me truly interested.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dragged 8 May 2014
By kshrop - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story moved along much too slowly for me. The heroine's father has sent for the son of a man he hates, and the father asks this young man to be the trustee of his daughter -- and that the daughter be allowed to marry for love. The daughter and stepmother don't get along as the stepmother has not been a faithful wife.

The daughter had been engaged at one time but had caught her fiance with the stepmother. Later the daughter was seen in the arms of a notorious rake and her reputation was ruined. Surprise! The trustee is the son of this man.

The hero is of course attracted to the young woman. There are seemingly endless misunderstandings between the two. It got to be very tiresome. He isn't sure that his feelings for her are entirely proper as he is in charge of her affairs. And he also has listened to gossip from the stepmother that the heroine had an improper relationship with his father. Even after all that nonsense is straightened out, the pair find other things to argue about.

The evil stepmother makes mischief with the assistance of the former fiance.

I started checking how far along I was about halfway through the story. Not a good sign.

Not my sort of story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read... 2 Dec 2013

I have never heard of this author before, but the book was free and the description sounded good. This book was very well written and hard to put down. I was not disappointed. There was some interesting twists in the plot and the storyline was well thought out. There was a lot of chemistry to hero and heroine, the other charcters were well rounded also. If my review seems dry it's cause I stayed up late to finish this book.

This book kept me engaged and turning pages. It reminded me very much of a good Jane Austin romance. I enjoyed it very much.
