From the back of the book:
Christopher Marchant's mood matches the storm clouds that gather above his mansion. Yet when lightning illuminates a stranded beauty he must do as any gentleman would. Although, once rescued, she must be on her way . . . . But if Hero Ingram leaves empty-handed her uncle will punish her. Christopher is caught off guard by her willful rebellion -- and he's sure he's caught a hint of vulnerability in her defiance . . . . As a gentleman he must protect her and make her quest his own. But as a red-blooded male . . . ? She has awoken him from his slumber!
I have read several of Deborah Simmons' books and thought they were great. This isn't one of them. It started off rather interestingly but the story would drag on after that until the very end. Even the main female character's name is confusing - Hero. I would find myself thinking she was a man several times throughout the story. As for romance, there isn't much. Christopher or Kit as he's called in the book is too much of a gentleman. There are two rather small kisses until the last 10 pages where Hero is finally compromised but that's about all you'll be told about it. This book was a disappointment to me.
