Product Description

Product Description

He’s dark and dangerous…and she can’t stay away…

Seven years have passed since Rafe Fletcher fled London. Now he has returned to make amends, only to find his brother, James, bound for debtors’ prison. Unable to clear James’s debts, Rafe does the next best thing, promising to watch over his brother’s betrothed in his absence. There’s just one problem: the shy, sweet girl he once knew has grown into an alluring young woman—one who wants absolutely nothing to do with a man like him.

Lizzy Croft isn’t fooled by Rafe’s dark good looks; she remembers all too well the hot-headed rogue he once was. But when Lizzy is framed for murder, she has no choice but to trust the man who once beat his brutish stepfather half to death, the man whose recent past is shrouded in mystery—the man who is slowly, inexorably winning her heart. Loving him would be the greatest risk of all…

I think the problem with this book is not the writing,but the pretext. I found the historical context a bit of a mismatch to the actual story. The characters didn't fully develop as far as I am aware and I am now left with a sort of incompleteness about the whole book.

Then again I could be biased towards more action filled books with romance as a back story as opposed to the other way around. If you can get it without paying over the odds, then it's a good time waster. A literary beauty/challenge is not.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2 and 1/2 stars 22 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would give this book 2 and half stars if I could. For me the plot was boring, characters were not interesting and their decisions did not seem realistic to me. I read the book couple of weeks ago and I have already forgotten what it was about. I would not pay to read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a good read! 13 Oct 2013
By Jackie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved everything about this story. It takes you back to Shakespere's London, feeling as if you're actually walking through the lanes of Southwark. A mixture of romance and intrigue.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a good series 19 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read most of the Lord Hawkwsbury series and i find they are all very good. it gives an incite in to that era but is a love story as well. I dont really read love stories usually but the tie up done quite well with the period facts.

3.0 out of 5 stars A lightweight romance for ladies 2 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Vaguely interesting from an Elizabethan theatrical background perspective, but rather a lightweight Mills and Booney sort of romantic story for those who crave improbable coincidences and happy endings.

Reserve this for the beach when you don't want anything too demanding. It's an easy read, which is good in one sense but ultimately not particularly satisfying. Read more
