Book Description:
Mr. Hugh Grey and Miss Eleanor Broxton share a scintillating liaison the night before he leaves for war in Canada. The memory sustained him for the years he was away. Now, the reputed rake is back, knighted, and he’s got enough money to right the estate his father left in ruins. What would make Sir Hugh Grey’s world perfect is the lovely Eleanor by his side.
Their attraction is sizzling, and the sweet way Hugh is wooing her—a kitten, kisses in the moonlight, and expert help in lighting her dreary work space—makes Eleanor dream of forever with her strapping knight. But she will not risk a scandal, which could ruin his newfound respectability and esteem, especially in her father’s eyes. When Hugh discovers what she’s been hiding, it could drive them apart forever.

My Opinion:
I like both of these characters and they did have plenty of passion between them. I just felt like someone should smack some sense into both of them. Hugh for not acting like a grown up and putting the past behind him to move forward and Eleanor for not telling the truth from the start. With the back and forth throughout the book, it just made me want to shake them. The writing was good and I didn't get bored reading this story. I just felt that there was just to much back and forth and it annoyed me. Yes, annoyed me. 

Overall, the book was good and I enjoyed it. I love the fact that Hugh gave Eleanor a kitten. I thought how sweet can one person be. But, at the end when he was the one to crawl back to her cause of things he said...Well, I felt it should have maybe been the other way around - Eleanor should have because she lied about the baby. But, then that would not have been to romantic. I don't know. I am not a writer, I am just a reader. 

I give this book 3 of 5 stars.

  1. I love the title and the cover. It's tasteful and traditional!

    1. Yes, it is very pretty. I am getting to the point that sometimes...I just won't even review a racy cover. I just don't want all that skin on my blog.


  2. This sounds like a great read.

  3. I think I can pass on this one.

  4. It does sound good to me, and I find it interesting that you seem so into the plot that what you didn't like is what they did (or didn't do). I like the concept!
