“RITA Award–winning Heath’s flair for stellar character development, exquisite use of sexual tension, and a story line that fluently incorporates Victorian history, in this case baby farming, into the plot all add up to another sure bet for fans new and old of this exemplary storyteller.”
From the Back Cover
The bastard son of a nobleman, Finn Trewlove was a shameful secret raised by a stranger. As Finn came of age, he had secrets, too—the clandestine nights spent with an earl’s daughter. But her promise of forever ended in betrayal.
Driven by a past that haunts her, Lady Lavinia Kent seeks redemption in London’s underworld, engaged in a daring cause inspired by the young man to whom she gave her innocence, and who then proved himself a scoundrel by abandoning her.
When their paths cross again, they can’t deny the yearning and desire that still burns. As they discover the truth behind the deceptions that tore them apart, Finn and Lavinia must fight to reclaim what they’ve lost, no matter how dangerous—because love is worth the risk . . .

1. The age difference: she was 17 and he 21 when they first go to bed.... I think part of the story is about “mistakes” being made when you are young and to learn to forgive yourself. It’s not rapey, it’s just two young adults who fall in love and have sex and then have to face the consequences. About that comment of him “grooming” her.... oh please 🙄 he was a virgin trying his damndest to seduce another virgin (even he needed alcohol in that scene)
2. Family keeping them separate, angsts and all that Jazz... all I have to say is: well, duh, what are you expecting here, it’s a fictional historical romance, not a darned historical biography based purely on real events.
Anyhoo, that’s my two cents. This book deserves way more merit than it’s getting. If anything, please read it. It’s an emotional roller coaster and it’s difficult and uncomfortable but at least you see the romance and the pain which most HR don’t show anymore.
Finn and Lavinia met when they were very young (21 & 15). At first it was a deep friendship for years until Lavinia came of age and they started acknowledging their romantic feelings towards each other. Theirs was a secret love affair because Lavinia is of the aristocracy and Finn was an illegitimate commoner. They were very much in love (and lost their virginity to each other, sigh). They were supposed to elope but things went wrong. They met again eight years after. Finn was observing and protecting Lavinia from afar while she does her charity work in the not so safe area of London. Eventually, they had their inevitable confrontation. I will stop here because the plot is just so amazing that you have to read it for yourself to really appreciate it and enjoy it. It will not disappoint. There were secrets and twists and revelations and character’s decisions that made for a good and seamless reading journey. In the end there is a happy ending. And a happy reader—- me. Hahaha.
I will wait for the next book in the series. I am glad I bought this because I have a feeling I will want to reread this book.
Finn and Viví are wonderful characters that you get to see how time, adversity and loss moldes them into the adults they become.
Viví could have taken the easy way out and kept on being the slightly spoiled lady of the ton that she was raised to be or someone that was very bitter but she doesn’t. She decides to leave everything behind and help the many children that needed protection in a time that nobody seem to care about them.
Finn was wonderfully caring, protective, romantic and I have to say swoon worthy. (I think he turned out to be in my top 10 of heroes). He was just so forgiving and understanding even when he thought he wanted revenge he was still trying to take care of her.
Be ready to feel so many emotions that you won’t know what to do with . You won’t want to put the book down because you just have to find out how they will make everything work out. Get the audiobook that way you don’t have to stop, that’s wat I did.
The story is poignant, sad, happy . There is so much love romantic and familial but also hate, ignorance and prejudice.
It’ a roller coaster of emotions and feelings
I highly recommend this book
When Finn and Vivi meet again years later they are both hurt and damaged individuals. They must learn to trust again and to be opened to the love they once had and lost.
Parts of this book will bring tears to your eyes but it will only make the Happily Ever After all the more rewarding.

Looking forward to the others
Did not like the ending...hero doubted his supposed love for the heroine because she was determined to get her stolen daughter back. If that is the case, he never really loved her to begin with.
