Hugh Margolis, Duke of Brighthollow, has been keeping a secret that eats him up inside. His beloved sister was seduced and nearly ruined by a wicked man. The trauma sent her into exile and to protect her reputation, he never did anything about it. But now the ‘gentleman’ is back in Society and recently engaged to another lady.
Miss Amelia Quinton cannot believe her luck. After a whirlwind courtship, she has just become engaged and now she’s looking forward to a true love match. Only all her plans come to a screeching halt when her father announces she is now to marry the Duke of Brighthollow because he owns her father’s debts.
Amelia is horrified, for Hugh is nothing like the sweet and gentle boy she wanted to marry. Only once their vows are said, passions flare and she begins to know the man better. Little by little, both their walls come down and feelings grow. Until she finds out he lied. Will Hugh ever tell her the truth and will it even matter by the time it’s all said and done?
I received this book from Netgalley in return for a honest review.
This is book in 8 in this fabulous series, it doesn't seem that long ago I was reading the first book. Wow this book had me hooked from the first page, right up until the last. Amelia is a lady that when she wants something she goes after it...but in this instance what she wants is something that Hugh is trying to change her mind over, much to Amelia's annoyance.
At some point in our life we've all told a lie...but have you ever told a lie and it gets so out of control you don't know if you can stop it, no me neither...but this is what happens to Hugh and very nearly causes him to lose the happiness so greatly deserves.
Hugh's friends also make an appearance, which is lovely and they were also a big help with Amelia and Hugh. For me I can highly recommend this book and I'm so looking forward to the next.
I give this book 5/5 stars. This book is on pre order at Amazon UK and the book is released on 24th July.
