I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
Julian, the earl, has a proposition for his brother. He, like so many others, is interested in the widow Antonia. In fact, he himself wishes to attempt to force her into a marriage and wants his brother to kidnap her. While Kit wishes for proper employment, he is desperate and agrees. Antonia, in the meantime, has been called to court to assist the queen, most likely because some of the king’s impoverished noble friends are hoping to gain her favor. As she heads to court, Kit saves her from danger, and she immediately hires him as her bodyguard.
Will Julian succeed in his evil plan? What court intrigues are ahead for Antonia? Will Kit kidnap her? Will he himself succumb to the widow's charms?
This book takes place in the time of the Restoration. Antonia is a Puritan, so it's interesting to see the social context of this. I also found it interesting that the author chose to make the heroine disfigured by smallpox; she caught it as she tended to her dying husband. Usually, in historical fiction, the heroine’s are beautiful and perfect physically. Instead, she has to deal with her disfigurement, which she finds difficult at times. Kit has his own difficulties, including dealing with a war injury that keeps him from continuing to do that line of work as well as having to raise his daughter on his own.
I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
