Nathan the Duke of Scarsdale is a man very much alone. He has friends but emotionally he is reserved and controlled. He has had a terrible childhood and he goes about life honorably but also somewhat aloof. His life though is endangered and he is saved by a most unexpected person, Sophia a tavern worker. Nathan feels honor bound to take care of Sophia and her brother who live under the thumb of a cruel father. He wants to marry her despite the fact that she is a commoner. He has plans to wed her and basically leave her in the country after they marry.
Sophia at first does not want to marry Nathan but she wants her brother in a safe environment and she begins to see a kinder softer Nathan. She has a big heart and it encompasses Nathan. She intuitively knows he has the ability to love deeply.
One irritating part of this novel is how stubborn both of these leads are. Nathan ignores good advice and puts himself in a very dangerous situation. So dangerous that it has huge repercussions in his life and Sophia’s.
Sophia is head strong and has big emotional swings. She is a devoted wife, then not. She takes the ton by storm which was surprising since she at first had no desire to be in their company. Her background is too easily dismissed by the aristocracy. She like Nathan rushes headlong into bad situations. Sophia is naive about her relationship with Nathan and her expectations initially with him were unrealistic. She expected him to mirror her feelings immediately.
I just could not find a lot to enjoy in this novel. There are a few good scenes (especially well written are Nathan’s inner musings) but there were too many scenes where the leads acted irrationally or fool hearty.
This story is wonderfully emotional and has some unexpected twists and turns that will have you reading into the wee hours of the night. It is a complex and very well-written story that will have you on the edge of your seat as you wonder what will happen next. Will these two people get their HEA? Read this story and find out! You will not be disappointed, because the characters are amazing and the story is enthralling! Highly recommended!!!
Nathan the Duke of Scarsdale and Sophia both suffered abuse since they have been children. Nathan was an only child, so he had no one to turn too or to be strong for, so he initially dealt with his pain by becoming numb to life through use of drugs. When he finally got sober, he has spent the years trying to atone for the pain he caused his friends. Though he still vowed to never love so he would never be hurt again by a woman.
Sophia was abused and used by her father. However Sophia was able to remain hopeful in her life for two reasons. A note he mother wrote on her deathbed telling Sophia to never give up and her half-brother, who she dedicated her life to protect.
While circumstances caused them to enter each other's lives and they each had to save the other from harm, their journey to love will not be an easy one. They will have to deal with Scarsdale walls, family bent on stealing the dukedom, revenge from an old foes, and lies.
The story will have you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next and it will not disappoint.
