"Historical romance devotees will enjoy Michels's adoring use of some of the classic tropes of the genre - the spare heir, the wrong brother as hero, the heroine in men's clothing - but what makes the book so enjoyable is the way Michels makes the familiar fresh. The book is at once a well-crafted mystery and a simmering romance." - Sarah MacLean, The Washington Post
"Michels's latest is the complete package: a captivating romance with gripping suspense wrapped up in a novel to be savored." - Publishers Weekly
"Readers are treated to Michels' strongest story yet. The engaging characters, intricate plotline and powerful love story hold readers from beginning to end as they watch the changing relationship between headstrong lovers as they unravel a mystery. Savor this tale." - RT Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars, TOP PICK!

Ethan Moore, a second son cast out of the bosom of his family due to a heated family dispute has made his living with his fists for the past eight years.
Roselyn Grey, his childhood best friend and confidante, has fashioned herself into the perfect Lady Ayton and is only in want of the proposal from Ethan's elder brother, Trevor to make it so. Ethan's unexpected return to the family home and the resulting celebratory house party throws all kinds of monkey wrenches into her well orchestrated plans.
This story takes us from the north mining country of England down to London and presents us with several mysteries. What has happened to splinter the Moore family? Why did Ethan leave home? What is Ethan running away from now? Did Ethan do murder most foul? Will he do it again?
I am afraid that I probably should have read the prior series because I fear there is missing information there to add flavor to this series.
This was a good story, but it fell short of spectacular due to some glaring holes in the plot. I'm left wondering about details of Ethan's life in Spain. The mystery of Ethan's mother is summed up in a couple of sentences and it left me with more questions than answers. Ethan's father is almost a nonentity in the story as well as his siblings, Trevor and Katie. Maybe there is more detail forthcoming in future stories? I can only hope so.
