Lady Samantha Barrett wondered if her imaginary hero would ever become real. Of course, he must be devastatingly handsome and just a bit dangerous. Now, her coach is filled with a collection of Gothic novels and her head with romantic notions as she eagerly leaves her brother’s country estate for her first London season. Still unsophisticated and too innocent by far, Samantha is ill-prepared for the hypocrisy of the ton or for the formidable stranger who crosses her path—a stranger she is sure must be the man of her dreams…
Remington Worth, the Earl of Gresham, is reputed to be anything but a hero. He is, however, intrigued by the fresh, young Lady Samantha. At sea, Remington had been a brilliant captain. To help save his country, he has accepted the Crown’s commission to become the most deadly and loyal covert agent, posing as a notorious womanizer and blackmailer. His latest mission is to investigate the mysterious disappearances of England’s prized merchant vessels. With an iron will, he will allow no one to get in his way or touch his heart—until Samantha.
Caveat: My genre of choice, for as long as I can remember was Mystery/Suspense and Gereral/Current Literature. Never Historical Romance. But there was something that piqued my curiosity, after reading the synopsis, of this book. I was also intrigued, since I had recently read another book by this author, a Psychological Thriller titled THE MURDER THAT NEVER WAS, which I really enjoyed.
This is the 2nd in a series but read as a stand alone.
Samantha, having become a woman, is looking forward to being introduced at the first season of aristocratic balls. And being a romantic, hoping to meet her “hero”. The moment she saw Lord Remington Worth, she knew that they would wed, except that notion was the furthest thing from his mind. She didn’t know that he held many demons that he fought. But her personality, warmth, determination and love would eventually make him see what is truly important, and that is love.
I absolutely loved this book! The plot is fluid. The characters likeable. From Ms. Kane’s storytelling, I felt that I was transported back in time. A well crafted Historical Romance with plenty of suspense.
Ms. Kane has written a total of 14 Historical novels and I plan on reading all of them!! Kudos Ms. Kane, you succeeded in convincing me that this genre will be added to my favorites!
