Lady Evelyn Renshaw's husband has been labeled a traitor by his country and no one seems to know of his whereabouts, least of all his wife. For all Evelyn knows, he could be lying dead in a ditch. When Evelyn is accosted in the park by a french man wanting to know her husbands whereabouts she is saved by the honorable Sinjon.
Sinjon is a wanted man. While away at war in Spain he was labeled a traitor and accused of raping a woman. Now back in England, Sinjon wants nothing more to clear his name and have revenge on the man who accused him of these treacherous allegations. Though to do so he must pass himself off as a footman in Evelyn's home and try to find out any information that he can on her husbands whereabouts. This seems simple enough to Sinjon, that is until he starts to get to know Evelyn.
Evelyn is immediately drawn to her footman. She knows that he saved her life, but it's more than that. She can't stop thinking about him. She knows that it's wrong to dally with the footman but there is just something about him that draws her in.
The chemistry between these two literally jumps off the page. I found myself quickly turning the pages to see what was going to happen with them. The sparks and tension between them was great, and when they did finally come together it was explosive. These two were just so hot!
Lecia Cornwall was able to fit so much into this book. I was never bored or uninterested with any of this book. Not only did I love the relationship between Evelyn and Sinjon, but I loved seeing more of Westlake and Marianne. These two are so good together and I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times when they were around.
I definitely recommend this book and I can't wait to read more from Lecia Cornwall. She just has a way of puling you into a story that you seem to forget about everything else that is around you.
