However, he finally decides Celia caused his sister's death and vows vengeance by ruining her. When each is blackmailed, they assume the other is the culprit. However, as they spend time together, Celia and Rupert find a common bond in their love for the late Emily. They realize that someone wants to extort money from both of them, when Celia goes to London for the season she finds love.
This is a warm late Georgian romance with a twisting suspense subplot refreshing the otherwise well written but typical story line. Celia and Rupert are fully developed lead characters whose connection is the late Emily; readers meet Emily as this pair perceive her. Sub-genre readers will enjoy the transformation of the lead couple from enemies to loving partners as a predator cleverly manipulates the grief impacting both of them.
Rupert Delacorte (Del), Viscount Darling hates Celia Burke and he is so angry he has decided to ruin her reputation even though he has never met her. He is convinced that Celia is a shallow, vain uncaring woman who only pretended to be his younger sister, Emily's, friend at their finishing school. Rupert's sister committed suicide and Rupert blames Celia based on letters he received. Not only that, Rupert has received a threatening letter that he believes Celia sent to him demanding money in exchange for silence about his sister's death.
Celia turns out to be very different from what he expects. She is gorgeous, a little shy, and unaffected. When she tries to express her condolences on his loss he gives her the cut direct.
Celia is surprised at Del's reaction. When she was at school she read Del's letter to her friend Emily and fell in love with him through his letters. She is dismayed to feel that he does not like her and even more upset when she receives threatening letters too. Celia believes Del is behind them as they reference his sister.
Del wrestles with his feelings for Celia, she seems to be so generous and he falls into a wager of being able to seduce her without ever touching her. Even though she seems genuine, Del still cannot forget about the blackmail note.
Celia is captivated by Del and thinks she can control the situation with him and what she believes to be his blackmail attempt. Celia is actually very very kind and forgiving of people's faults and this is what wins Del over.Read more ›
